A second weird ww2 battle report using Fear of the Dark
« on: July 02, 2021, 06:12:20 PM »
As I have been a ww2 wargame player for such a long time, I'm thinking on making a ww2 / weird ww2 version of Fear of the Dark.

It would be a more combat oriented wargame, although it still would have part of the narrative style seen in Fear of the Dark.

It would be a solo wargame and would involve small skirmishes during world War 2, and the weird component would be optional, as there would be scenarios that would be strictly ww2 and other scenarios that would be weird ww2.

The game system would be similar to Fear of the Dark, although the combat system would be enhanced to become more tactic and combat-oriented.

The following battle report is an example of what could be done with the game, I hope you like it and expect your comments:

Cool battle report, and enjoyed it like your previous Last Train one. It was also useful to get some of your thoughts and process on how you went about creating the scenario. I look forward to more.

Thanks a lot!

I had been asked a few times about how I organized my games, that's why I wanted to explain it.

Where are those cool buildings from?

They are from several brands, but mainly  from Fat dragon and worldworks games.

Papercraft allows to make really cool set ups without spending too much money.

I made a post on papercraft buildings in my blog:
