Bush Wars - system queries.

Postby weemadando » Thu Sep 17, 2015 8:42 pm

I'm looking at getting some 15mm Bush Wars stuff, as that era, and series of conflicts always intrigued me.


Force on Force has a Bush Wars book - but the core book is all but impossible to find. Peter Pig offers AK47 Republic, which also includes some random faction generation rules which seems interesting.

I know some folks have experience with Force on Force, but has anyone tried AK47 Republic? Does someone have a copy of the rules I could peruse one night?

Thanks in advance.

Managed to find a copy of the core rules at Joe Dodgy. Now to see what can get here quicker than - Book Depository for the Bush Wars book, or core rulesrules from Australia?

I jnowknow which one I'll bet on.

Not tried AK47 Republic, but more than happy to provide any insights into Force On Force or even organise a demo game!

Force on Force is a great system and really captures the whole vibe of small scale infantry combat complete with fog of war.

I have a bunch of stuff for Force on Force in 15mm, so would love to give you a game some time.

I will need some planning, but I have US, afghans, and somali's, just missing a lot of terrain.

The Somalis could easily be an 'African militia' for bush wars.

Sounds good. Once books arrive, I'll start looking more seriously at minis. 20mm seems far more prevalent for the setting than 15mm, but we'll see.

I should be in on Thursday, and hopefully might have received at least one shipment of books by then.

Hi,

I'll be in on Thursday but probably a bit later (c. 9 pm).
