Down The Casbah Way Friday Night at Little Wars
« on: April 03, 2017, 03:05:21 PM »
Hey everyone! As I continue to develop my jet combat in the cold war rules set, Danger Zone, I will be having two events at the upcoming Little Wars in Lombard, IL, just outside Chicago at the Westin hotel.

http://www.hmgsmidwest.com/main%20LW.html

First up is Down the Casbah Way on Friday night. From the PEL:

The year is 1961 and your Mercenary Air Combat Squadron has been hired by the Emirate of Hidar to protect their primary refinery on the outskirts of the streets of the Capitol. The Soviet backed Kingdom of Fazil has sent a wave of bombers to flatten it. Can you get past the escort MiGs to take down the bombers before they can release their bombs?

We'll have F100s, F86s, Hawker Hunters, and DeHavilland Venoms trying to shoot down IL-28s and Tu-16s being escorted by Mysteres, Super Mysteres, MiG 15s and MiG 17s. I'm being sponsored by Pico Armor and Desktop Dioramas and hope to see you there.

I'll have ground terrain pieces including an oil refinery complex. Keep an eye out here for future sneak peeks here.

Reminds me a bit of Area 88:

Yes, Area 88 was a huge influence on the rules.

For the scenario, the influence was this...
