We've been trying out the new Iron Ivan set, "Disposable Heroes: Point Blank" at our local club. Tonight we tried a Rhodesian Bush War scenario using units and stats from the "Man Among Men" module. The results were pretty satifying (despite the wrong side winning! ;->). We'll be using this set again I should think.

Here is a link to the battle report and pics.

Crossposted to WW2 boards as DH is primarilly a WW2 game.

Enjoyed reading your AAR. What figures and transport were you using?

Thanks for the report – nice figs and table setup also.

How would the rules work for post-apoc? The description on Iron Ivan's site mentions a 'build your own' system.

Vosper the rules would work rather well for a post-apoc game.

In back of the rules they list all of the Disposable Heroes supplements as being compatible, as well as "No More Room in Hell" and "Where Heroes Dare"- so they are very adaptable.

I am even contemplating setting up a Sci-fi game with the rules… but after I finish playing Vietnam and Rhodesia with the rules.

Trench Raider did you scratch build the Greys, or is Eureka coming out with some more figures for the war?

My infantry in this game were all Eureka's Rhodesian War line. The Grey's are a scratchbuild I did. They started life as Old Glory WW2 Soviet cavalry. The gun truck is a Force of Arms Somali technical who's crew has had a head swap. Finally, the Unimog is by Hobby Armor Depot. (do a search on this forum before you order one though…)

Shelldrake- As seen above, they are conversions. I know Eureka made noises about doing a Grey's Scouts trooper or two (something I was pushing them to do) but I have not heard anything about that in a while.

Thanks Martin – I will have to check out the Eureka site to see if there is any advancement in their 100 club.
