I have just published a review of Hind Commander – a tabletop helicopter warfare game.


Hope you find it useful

Great review – neat concept for the game.

Nice review, but some basic info missing: How many players? Head to head or co-op? (I cant imagine it would be much fun to play the ground forces getting blown up by the helos.) Also, define "modern." Are we talking Soviet Afghan War? Chechnya? Hypothetical European warfare? What's the context for the missions?

Good points it's 2 player, head-to-head, but each player has both ground forces and helicopter forces.

'Modern' is, in this case, simply defined as 'post 1945', or more accurately, probably post 1970. The missions are generic in nature, and not defined to a particular region or conflict.

If you look at the website and see the forces that they are selling for the game, it will give you some idea of what eras the rules are aimed at.

However, yes, key info missing from the review…

I've been interested with this game ever since I've heard about it. Does each "battle set" sold on PicoArmor's site (usually with a dozen choppers, 2 fixed wing aircraft, 25 vehicles and 15 infantry strips) provide a decent enough force for one side, or is it considered bare minimum?

Sounds a lot like "Air Cav" from West End Games. Except possibly more flight sim detailed then that older boardgame.

I think a Battle Set pretty much provides everything you need to play…

Im kinda turned off by "writing down your orders" can you explain that in a little more detail?

In orders phase you write down a simple instruction for you helicopters (in very simple code). Later in the turn you move the helicopters according them. It's a kind of pre-planned action.
