Nuke The Site From Orbit ...
... it's the only way to be sure
15mm Science Fiction Demonstration
From: CIC Mandela IV Expeditionary Force.
All units ! All units!
Ground situation untenable. Fleet have been ordered to sterilise incursion site from orbit with strategic nuclear weapons in one hour. All units to withdraw to primary extraction site immediately for uplift. You have one hour. Repeat one hour.
The joint British and South African mission to contain the Cimmexian bug incursion on Mandela IV has failed. The only option left is to nuke the site from orbit. Can the ground pounders get back to their drop ships in time?
The rules, an amalgam of Dirtside and Stargrunt (with a few local modifications) and the infantry figures are from Ground Zero Games. The model vehicles are from the Brigade Models range. The scenario is set, loosely, in Wessex Games "Iron Cow" universe.
Models painted by Tony Francis. Terrain also by Tony, buildings by Phil Richards.
