For a long time I've been looking for a good set of skirmish rules which are simple to use and also can be fit on the side of an A4 sheet of paper.Haven't come across the latter yet but Chris Peers 'Future War' rules go a long way to solving the first request.
|Downtown East Lothian|
I provided my militia and civilians and true to form because they had never been used before they followed the usual trait of not giving a good showing.
|My militia with the wrong camo!|
|Bill's bully boys|
The thing about these rules is that in order to do something significant your figures have to be motivated and to do this you have to be within eight inches of your leader or else your figures are just swatting at flies which my civilians were doing.
|The deserted streets-not for long.|
Bill's forces-no doubt socialist inclined were slowly edging up the other flank due to the vagaries of the movement rules as well as the swamp that Colin had conveniently placed in front of Bill's initial set up.My civies were taking potshots at them but due to them being to far away from their leader could only make them keep their heads down.
|'Are my seams straight?'|
|Harry Palmer not having a good time-not a lot of people know that.|
|A good way to rip your tights.|
|'Hoy,where's your orange vests'|
See you when I see you.
