    Guess what I've been playing /tg/...

    Rules for 15mm figures portraying "warlord-level battles" from the fifties through the eighties. Players create their own third-world nation--there's a random generator for creating your country's flag and name--buy units for it, and send it off to fight. A later supplement adds more political complexity--rather than a warlord nation, you can play a corporate army, insurgents, a US intervention force, a mercenary army, Israelis, Syrians...

    The game itself is quite simple, and the primary attraction of the game is "roleplaying" as the leader of your forces. Units may be Professional, Regular, or Militia (costing progressively less), and each unit may contain widely varying types of troops. It is all quite irregular, as befits the subject.

    Here's a copy of all the types of armies:

    Do you feel that way about WWII mini games? Or Napoleonics? Or Roman? Or how about the Call of Duty Modern Warfare series?

    Its just a game. Relax and have fun. If anything historical wargames can help raise awareness and education of the past (or current events).

    Also, to be a terrible(?) person, we should do Gadaffi and Libyan TNC army write ups.

    That concern is not new with post-1945 gaming. I know my old club, back in the day, barred all WW3-type gaming, and took a very dubious view of my Vietnam campaign. It seems too close to home for some. These old guys had no problem mincing up legions of conscripts in Napoleonic gaming, but shyed away from anything they saw on the news.

    But I would suggest questions of morality stay the hell out of miniature gaming. No-one ever seems upset about people fielding Waffen-SS or Mongol armies despite the many atrocities they committed. Roll your dice and enjoy the game.

We'd slaughter anyone we saw, chop their heads off and use them as soccer balls. We were nude, fearless, drunk and homicidal. We killed hundreds of people -- so many I lost count.

    It's a very tight system, they've ironed out the bugs, and gameplay is fucking awesome.

    I was playing some Religious nutcases who got their hands on a T-55 and believed it was a sign from god, so they took it into a town across the border defended by a dictators army.

    It was pandelerium. The enemy brought up two wheeled gun vehicles but the inepts in the tank took them out (as well as some of their own troops near the vehicles) and saw this as a sign from God that their cause was just. It was all going so well until the elite guard showed up in an old Russian helicopter and ruined my day. Still, great fun.

    It's distance, I think. Pre-20th century wars are long in the history books and no one actually remembers them, and technology and tactics have changed so much that they're interestingly different from modern day warfare. However, it's easy to forget that those wars were just as, if not more, bloody, cruel and horrible as wars today, just with weapons you had to work harder to kill people with.

    I'll take a middle ground here: the game in the OP does disturb a lot of people for legitimate reasons, and may well be in poor taste especially if it's poorly written and made. However, if it's worth playing on its own merits, it does offer something different to most wargames on the market, and raises some questions and conundrums worth discussing. And it might even be fun to play.

Set in "the 120 last days humanity" and featuring troop choices such as "rape/kill gangs", kids with handgrenades and landmates.

    Well, I think they look good. Do you need to buy 30$ worth of minis? No, not really as long as you clearly mark the bases to indicate a rifle stand vs an RPG team. But personally I like my dudes to be holding the right weapon.

    Yeah, thats why I'd probably get Peter Pig, or maybe QRF. Since they come in packs of 8. Much easier to get close to the amount you need (typically with a few extra, which never hurts). Plus like I said, I love those Arab/PLO minis, here is some done up as Chechen rebels.

    Just an interesting tidbit fromthe victory points section.

    Unpainted models earn you -2 victory points. Having a model flying a two sided flag earns you +2 victory points. Most victory points are also variable (2d6 pts per helicopter destroyed: it makes for good video for news crews) so at the end of the day, the general who walks away with the highest fame might not be the winner of the actual battle in terms of casualties (although if you killed more stuff you will probably have a better chance of winning) I like the system because hey, you might have scored a great victory, but if the press doesn't know about it... Did you really accomplish anything?

    Hey OP, how many infantry bases and extras (Such as that T-55) does your average AK-47 Army contain? Just curious what a baseline price would be for getting the rules and getting an army.

    Rules - £30
    Minis - £2.50 per 8 dudes (enough for a couple bases I assume)
    T-55 - £6
    Toyota Hilux - £4
    "Technical" bits for Hilux - £2.50 (dude with an MG x6) - £2.50 (ZPU1 AA or Recoiless Rifle, x1 ea.)

    It depends on your army, each one is structured differently in the assets you have available (some are mob armies, others have a hard core of professionals, some rely on technology, others on brutal support options (like artillery out the wazoo)) Each infantry stand generally has three figures on it, if you had 50 dudes you'd be covered I figure. A couple of vehicles as well, depends how you build up your force honestly. I wouldn't expect to spend more then 100 bucks US in total aquiring units for every possible deployment capability of your army.

    What really sets this game apart for me is the variety in the armies and their playstyles. I like Force on Force, and mechanically I think it does some things better, but it doesn't always convey the feel of the army other then 'well trained, trained, not trained, peasants'' whereas AK has forces with really varied playstyles. Your religious dude swarms people, your dictator has more apcs, and the western intervention army has good training and equipment, but is always outnumbered. It goes beyond just a general effectiveness, to maximize your army you have to fight like they would.

    I'm not good with currency changes, but I got three t-55s, BMP-1s, BRDMs, Urals, and infantry for 100 bucks. (There were a few other things as well)

    Rules were seperate. For most games I will never be able to field everything I bought, at best like ten stands and 2-4 vehicles.

    Game time is variable, you start with 21 'turns' to finish the game, at the end of each turn you roll a d6 and subtract the result from 21. You could have 21 turns, you could have four. Always plan to achieve your objective quickly. You can't fence sit and seize an objective 'on the last turn' since the last turn might come up faster or slower then you expect.

    Just found this description of the game online:


    Okay, just glancing over my copy the gist of it is this. You get 600pts to create your force; of that 25 to 90 points must be alloted to the pre-game political maneuvering phase (which may end up helping you out or not). The remaining points are used to buy your forces, which must be split into five 'units', each one of at least 60 points. Typical costs for some sample elements are (per stand) as follows:

    Infantry with small arms - 7 / 10 / 17 (for Militia/Regular/Professional)
    Infantry with RPGs - 14 / 20 / 27
    Tank - 60 / 60 / 85
    Armoured Car (tank gun) - 40 / 40 / 50
    Truck w/HMG - 25 / 25 / 35

    These are restricted according to what type of force you're operating, for example for a Religious Movement, three or four of your five units must be comprised of Militia quality elements, one or two must be Regular, at least two must contain no vehicles, no Professional elements, no more than two units with tanks or armoured cars (and with all that Militia, you're going to potentially have a pretty large force in terms of minis needed!). The other forces all have different rules as to force composition.

    37 KB

    Force types include Religious Movement, Colonial Power/Settlers, People's Popular Front, Superpower Back Client Force and Dictatorship. All have their own political phase flow chart, where you spend your political maneuvering points to progress through the steps (which have a randomly determined cost so you can't PLAN the political phase). These have results that can assign you an extra unit, improve the quality of some of your troops, affect movement, cause enemy militia units to defect or run away etc. Fun stuff!

    Units arrive on the board as follows - at the start of game, line up your five units in the order you would like them to arrive. You then roll a d6 for each unit to see if it shows up for the start of the battle, for the first unit you need a 2+, second unit needs a 3+, third needs a 4+ etc. Any that don't show up arrive late and can enter on a 5+ (for the defender) or a 6 (for the attacker) on or after turn 4.

    Hope this helps! "

    Sounds interesting.

    Shit, I think I have 2 of these from decades ago.

    I've been developing an interest modern wargaming, having a look at Ambush Alley, AK-47 Republic and the like. Nobody else at my FLGS is remotely interested in this that I am aware of. When discussing it with one of the staff there, he mentioned that they had stocked a bunch of box sets for Ambush Alley when it first came out, but none of them had sold. They're just collecting dust in their warehouse now, and I could get them dirt cheap if I wanted. I assume they are the Rebel Minis 15mm boxed sets. I'd need to be sure before grabbing them, but if they are everything is awesome for me.

    Well, aside from having no one to play against. But when has that ever stopped me from building an army or three?

    Have you ever seen a real battle, not just one in Africa? You fight with the forces you have, not the forces you wish you had. The mark of a true commander is to adapt to setbacks and maintain the objective. AK-47 seems to simulate the chaos of the region, and of battle, in this manner.

    Yeah but no matter how you cut it even at 15mm a 2x2' of painted, sanded and modeled cardboard buildings takes a while. A 40k table needs a enough terrain to fill a quarter of 4x6 so it's nearly as much work (and again I feel that buildings are more trouble than just trees and rocks and hills).

    If you're playing 25/28mm AA then move it up to 4x4' of terrain and various debris.

    I have both, I'm just saying the terrain is a bigger project than the "armies" and also a relatively large project for a small scale.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say, that AA doesn't require a load of terrain for a 15mm game?

    So these models are the same scale as FoW, right?

    Good news for me, because I've got some unpainted Soviet infantry lying around that could use some action. Bit of conversion work and I wouldn't need to pay shipping out the ass for the models.

    Check out this link for some terrain:
    Problem is, it's meant for Army Men, which I think is 28mm scale. Anyway, you get shipping containers, cars, buildings, unit status markers, etc, all for free

    You're welcome, used to have more, but I lost my bookmarks in a hard drive crash a few months back.

    One of them was for making these neat "hills" with little platforms for minis to stand on (pic related), where the hills are actually supposed to be a loooongg ways away.

    For those times when your convoy gets ambushed in a mountain pass or whatever.

    That's a pretty good idea, actually. This sounds like it can be adapted for pretty much every Cold War conflict fought by irregular forces.

    There's probably a better ruleset for playing a serious game of Cold War-era combat, but we're in this thread for the beer and pretzels game.

War has always been a horrible and bloody affair, and if you're bitching about people playing games set in recent and current conflict zones, yet you have no qualms with people playing WW2 or WW1 games, or hell, wargames in any shape or form, you're just acting like a pompous ass.

    I forgot to mention that part of the game involves "15 days to war": essentially the build up of forces over time. This can drastically affect the forces available to you when the actual game starts, and is really quite fun and requires some serious strategizing.

    My Superpower backed army got a nice little boost with extra artillery. The game was so easy when I could call down artillery strikes with impunity, although the other playes tanks still gave me a roughing up before I disabled them as a threat.

    I do have one relevant one on hand that I've just scanned : an article/battle report by Peers called "The Mission At Mongo", from April 2005. There is discussion of troops, rules etc and it is pretty enlightening.

    I do have a shitload of old wargaming mags I've inherited from retired gamers, from the late 70's / early 80's. You think /tg/ would be interested if I scanned a few?
