I love the system in both Memoir 44, and Command and Colors. Trouble is I want to use them in other eras. What would one need to do to take Command and Colors, and adapt it to medieval times, or to more modern day wars like WWI or Vietnam. Or should these just be scratch built?

That would be BattleLore.

They specifically had a subset of non-fantasy battles.

You would need minor tweaks for more modern stuff since it already covers WWII. I personally wouldn't mind seeing other systems given the quality component treatment that the C&C system has. Samurai Battles being the exception since one of the biggest errors I have seen was the miniatures for that game. Make everything blocks like one user did, and the game benefits greatly from it.

The system can be adapted to the Cold War, Vietnam, WWI, and several other periods:







Richard Borg has been working on a WWI version. I observed a playtest session in April.

Would you mind expounding on the photos you posted? Such as the rule adaptions you implemented?

Here are two scenarios from the Vietnam era:

The 1979 border clash between China and Vietnam

Vietnam: 1972 Easter Offensive

Neither of these would win any awards. However, they both provide an example of the tremendous potential of the C&C system to portray a wide variety of conflicts.

I see, well thank you very much. Where did you get the modern miniature tanks from? I recognize the figures as ESCI but I've never seen little plastic tanks like that.

Those are from the Memoir '44: Mediterranean Theater expansion.
