Third Afghan War game
« on: November 29, 2021, 06:03:03 PM »
We had a cracking Third Afghan War game the other week, after action report on the blog with some nice pictures. More thought required on rules!

Great game and splendid figures.  :-* :-* :-*

Why not try an adapted Men Who Would Be Kings.  The only changes you would need to make is probably the MG firing.

Excellent scenario and great presentation. I bought a book on that action at Badama Post to do the very same scenario.

Looked like a lot of fun.  Great table and figures!

What scale is the airplane? I've been looking at Corgi 1/48 scale planes for this period.

tHANKS GUYS, SETTING THE eAST aBLAZE i HAVE TRIED IN THE PAST AND WASNT TOO FOND OF. I think Chain of Command with alterations for the tribal element will give us what we need, let you knowwhen we have playtested them.

I plan to use TSATF with some of the rules in the Sword To Adventure variant for this conflict.

Sorry, late to the party on this one.
Great looking game, that really portrays the period well.
Nice figures, and nice table.
I do like the aircrew hiding in the building.
