Squadron Forward was published! While not as much feedback as Platoon Forward, all of it has been positive. Am now tinkering with how to do more specific, limited air campaigns such as Midway, a Malta convoy or Operation Torch. This would use Squadron Forward but add a few specific rules to cover the unique time limited event and would have a definite victory condition besides getting your squadron through. First up is Operation Torch. Needed some Vichy fighters painted up so:
It looks better at 15,000 ft!!
Second up I have been working on a variant for SAGA that makes it closer to how I play it. It adds Shield wall, variable movement [must for solo gamers! ] morale after melee, leaders and champions.
Still keeps all this stuff simple in the spirit of the SAGA rules. I think I am going to call it "Stepping out" and will prbably publish it in WSS. Needed some Normans for this one to test it on so...
OK so the painting isn't terrific but he looks great in
the midst of battle!
Besides-- I'm an idea guy!
Still toying with various stuff for Warband Forward.
Release the Hounds is moving along well. These are my Coastal actions rules for WW II desgined primarily for DDs and below. I hadn't wanted to write them because I wanted to write Flotilla Forward but couldn't find a set of Coastal rules that didn't require me to write a bunch of stuff down. Because these are actually a set of tactical rules I am going to use outside playtesters for these. I have contacted a couple of you but could use 2 more. If seriously interested in playtesting these and you have a good working knowledge of coastal actions AND don't mind crappy pre production rules with poor explenations then e-mail me with 3 sentances on "why me" at the_legans4 at msn.com or just post here..
Flotilla Forward-- back burner until Release the Hounds is further along.
Middle of NoWhere-- Feel bad about this. I did paint up a Huey but have not playtested any more scenarios. Blame SAGA.
Bomber Foward -- Back burner
Jasta Forward-- Looking for someone with more knowldge of WW I aircraft than I to help.
Thats all the updates for now. I hope everyone is enjoying both Platoon Forward and Squadron Forward!
