Force on Force has arrived!

Today Force on Force arrived in the mail, so this afternoon was spent reading it, getting a little confused by the rules, reading it again then realizing it wasn't so confusing after all.
A very nicely laid out book. There's some great artwork in it by Osprey Publishings as well, along with references to miniature websites in the beginning.
I've read you can cover pretty much any post-WWII conflict, and when I heard that I automatically thought of a fictitious Second American Revolution, but I'm having second thoughts partially because I'd have to convert a lot of miniatures to do that.
I started looking to the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) and the Indo-Pakistani Wars of 1965 and 1971 (Elhiem has a line for that). I've done research on both conflicts and I must say they are both quite interesting. However, I think I should just read the book before I jump to conclusions.
Stay tuned!


  1. There certainly are. It makes it kind of a big pill to swallow...

  2. Big pills are part of the fun though! I'm still trying to grasp the rules myself, I do love the great Osprey artwork though. I look forward to maybe seeing some new minis in the future from you now.

    1. Definitely! I hate to say it, but I think I'm abandoning the whole second revolution thing. I might pick some miniatures up from Elhiem in the near future.

  3. I've got these also and used to play Ambush Alley all the time, they remain among my primary choice of modern rules sets, along with THW - nice one.
