Happy New Year! Hope you had a great holiday season.
Have been sick most of the holiday so few games to report. My parents came over and my son was back from university so it was still a great time. Gaming gifts I recieved some vietnam terrain and some norman figures for my dark age gaming.
Thought I would take a look forward at all the projects I am working on. A few of these should see print this year!
Squadron Forward No introduction needed for this. Rich started on the draft last week. I need to finish up the mission tables and medals. Should be out by end of Feb. Really excited about this.
Middle of NoWhere The asymetrical warfare expansion to Platoon Forward. Should add about 6 scenarios and tweak the tables to cover anti partisan operations in WW II and Vietnam. 3 of the scenarios are done and playtested. Need to work on the other 3 and playtest the table tweaks some more. Hopefully out end of year if I can get Rich to publish it (Haven;t shown it to him yet)
Bling the Hun My variant for Bag the Hun. Includes how I attempt to differenciate all the different models of aircraft and tone down the "one plane gets to move 3 times a turn" bit. Includes an updated damage table and takes into account cockpit armor/ self sealing fuel tanks, rates of climb and dives, turns and how hard it is to land! Basically "Lazy TW&T" for BTH 2". 80% done. Will shoot for the summer special; if not the christmas special
Release the Hounds My coastal action naval rules. TW&T meets MBTs. 85% done but it needs something to be finished; not sure what it is yet. They are a decent set but they don't always give you the "wow" factor so I would not release them yet to the public. It is the damage model. I am finding it hard for it to work easily for both MBTs and CLs without any record keeping. The rest of it works great including the personalities. Don't know if this will be a full set of rules or a special. Depends how long they are.
Flotilla Forward Platoon Forward for Naval actions. Still on the drawing board
SAGA variant Have added variable movement, minor morale,leaders and tone down the battle boards. Playtesting now. 50% done. Hope to have an article in WI before the end of the year.
Warband Forward Platoon Forward for Dark Ages Still on the drawing board. Need a clean set of Dark Age rules where people live first! Rich if working on a set so we will see...
Bombers Forward Expansion to Squadron Forward. Adds Bomber squadrons and missions to Squadron Forward. Still on the drawing board.
That is all the stuff in my mind at the moment. Finished a SAGA game today which I will post this week.
Any comments on the above are welcome. I really appreciate your support!
Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
