My local wargaming group will be running a Rhodesian Bush War public participation game tomorrow at TARGE using a customized version of Crossfire. If you’re in the area do pop along for a game!
it seems that all my buses came at once this week! Not only did I get my FREE Flames of War 4th edition upgrade, I managed to win a Blitzkrieg Commmander / Cold War Commander double-whammy on eBay, and bought a cheeky copy of Kings of War Historical too!
I’ve been wanting to get a hold of BKC ever since I heard it used push-your-luck command rolls to try and activate your units. I love the uncertainty in games like that which is undoubtedly why games like Crossfire and Song of Blades & Heroes tick my box!
Although Cold War shenanigans weren’t really my thing, I’ve found that I’ve been on a slippery slope into alt-80s wargaming ever since I picked up some 1/72 Spetsnaz and British Paras at last year’s Claymore. Up until now I’ve been making do with using Crossfire for this, but I’m gonna raid the army lists in CWC to make it a ‘little bit’ more authentic.
Call me slow on the uptake but I finally realised that I could get some great gonzo wargaming going using Kings of War Historical. I had been thinking of using Of Gods & Mortals with some homebrew factions in order to send Vikings or Samurai against the Undead and Goblinoids – I may still do this for small skirmishes. But for bigger battles that don’t involved brain-melting tomes, I’m gonna plump for KoWH… in 1/72 of course!
Turned in to a bit of a turkey shoot this week in Crossfire! 1 US Platoon and two HMGs (in foreground) versus the 1 remaining freedom fighter – a soon to be ex-Platoon Commander. OUCH!
I’m normally gigging on Hallowe’en, but this year I was asked to entertain the troops with a wargame! OH, OK THEN 🙂
I’ve finally amassed enough terrain to put my own Crossfire wargames table together. It’s important not to have long Lines of Sight in a Crossfire game, and I think I managed to pull it off with the aid of some old toy trucks from the local charity shop.
