Yep - another game set in Northern Gambola.  This time, the intel is solid.  So, the Joint Task Force Commander at the airport in Bangerizi is sending a Ranger platoon out via helicopter insertion to take another crack at nabbing Captain General M'Gumbo Isgood.   We're set to play this out Friday of this week.  It'll just be Ted and me.

Here is the scenario information:









We'll be using 28mm minis and using Fistful of Lead: Bigger Battles rules.  This scenario is based on the "The Old French Plantation at Quan Loi" I wrote for Ambush Valley (the one for the first iteration on Force on Force).

I hope to post an AAR this weekend.  As I will be on vacation after that for the better part of 2 weeks, if I don't do it this weekend, it'll have to wait till early April.  I'll get to it one way of another...

Thanks, fellas!

A couple notes, after reviewing the rules in preparation for tomorrow's game:

1.  The helicopters will have the Agile Trait. 

2.  The AH64 will have the Advanced Fire Control Trait (I think it's called that...) and the Stabilizers trait (only for the chin-mounted mini-gun and the Hellfire ATGMs, not the rockets).  I wonder what a Hellfire would do to Gen. Isgood's car... ;)

They'll hit the LZ at 1100 hrs. tomorrow morning...wish the Rangers luck!

I know. I beg your forgiveness.  iI was looking forward to it, too....

They will get Isgood, though, one way of the other.......

Real life missions get scrubbed. Shit happens. Disappointing but maybe you could build the delay into the scenario. Hope Ted recovers and the game rolls on.

Looking forward to the report here too.

Yep.  A storm blew up that morning, and the flyboys in the Aviation Battalion didn't want to go up.  Gotta wait for better weather, and hope the good General is still there....

Well, it looks like the mission to grab Gen. Isgood is back on.  Intel has him back at that plantation.  SP is this coming Friday at 1100 hrs.  Report to follow.

Also, i've now finished the previously mentioned African civilians.  Unfortunately, my photo-taking place is taken up by the game set-up for the above mission.  Once we play that game, and I've taken the stuff down, I'll take and post pics of them.

And with them done, my painting efforts will now switch over to WW2 and ACW, both 28mm.  Of course, i will be posting pics of those figures on my relevant threads.  But fear not, game-wise, we'll still be in the modern era (Northern Gambola and Balczakistan) for a bit more...
