I received an early copy of this game It's really well done. It remains simple but has tactical depth. You can also play it solo if you want to.  I'm always curious about that. This one works as a solo game or a competitive game. Low model count, a true skirmish size.


A lot is packed into the 64 pages, which is impressive. Many of Osprey's games spend too much time rehashing familiar rules from other rule sets. This does not. I recommend it for anyone who likes modern or near-future skirmish and, of course, for any post-apocalypse fans. I'm a professional designer myself, so I'm fairly critical. This passes the smell test. Buy it.

Got my copy of Zona Alfa yesterday. Is there a QRS or downloadable Crew Roster available anywhere?

From what I understand, Osprey will post them on their site after the release.

Got my copy this morning. I'll keep an eye out for the QRS. Always handy to have around.
I'm not a mercenary. Killing's more of a hobby for me.

Interesting read, I will look out for the rules (and the solo rules).

Local arms dealer ran a sale on Fuchs last month, sold so many it's hard to keep track. Nations, corporations, private security companies, an investing consortium, organized crime... you never know who will show up in the Zone.

Maybe it is an ex- British Army one: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/TPz_Fuchs#Operators_and_export_sales
Eminently suitable for use there.
