Into Action

On Saturday, we tried out a game of Ambush Alley Games’ Tomorrow’s War rules in 15mm using our buildings and vehicles and GZG figures.

AAR-0

We tried two scenarios, a pilot rescue mission (from the rulebook) and a more ad-hoc meeting encounter between two forces mismatched in both size and technology level. With a large number of players (starting with seven then adding another later) we were lucky to have an umpire experienced with AAG’s Force-on-Force ruleset who helped the game flow smoothly.

AAR-3

The rules worked well, they modelled the differences between units with different levels of technology and ability well, and most importantly we had a lot of fun.

AAR-2

What was notable is that it was the first time I’d managed to get my Neu Celle 15mm buidings on a table, albeit in a 90% finished state, and it also marked the combat debuts of the PacFed Wombat APC and Neo-Soviet Laska tankette. It has to be said that the PacFed vehicle fared rather better than it’s Soviet counter-part, which was turned into pile of smoking wreckage by a three-man Power Armour team armed with a missile launcher and chain gun.

AAR-1

So when can you buy these models ? We’ve had them on the table, and you’ll be able to soon – the first two PacFed vehicles, the Cougar MBT and Wombat APC, will be available this coming weekend – we’ll announce it here, on our mailing list and on as many other lists and news-sites as we can find as soon as they’re ready.

AAR-4

UPDATE 17/01/2012 – there are more photos on the Maidstone Wargames Society website

I’m glad you guys had fun with the game!

The buildings and vehicles look great – I’m going to post a link to this article over on our forum (www.ambushalleygames.com/forum) so people can get a look at ’em. Feel free to post news about your stuff over there, too! There’s a lot of guys over there that would be interested – me included!
