Bush Wars, supplement #6 for Force on Force (Osprey Publishing/Ambush Alley Games), represents a new take on supplements for the game. It covers Africa from 1960-2010.

Rather than focus on a single conflict in recent history, our purpose is to give a good cross representation of conflicts in a specific region of the world drawn from several wars.

What future Force on Force supplements would you like to see in this vein?

Central/South America

Would SWAT actions work for FoF?

Irish Marine Supporting Member of TMP04 Jun 2012 7:42 p.m. PST

Iran Iraq war, Britians small wars in the 1950's-1960's, Arab Israeli wars

DestoFante04 Jun 2012 7:54 p.m. PST

I second Britain's small wars in the 1950s-1960s and Central America in the 1970s-1980s.

Arab-Israeli Wars.

Nova Caledonia vs Afrodizia.

Colonial west african crisis : Kolvezi, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria …

Henrix Inactive Member05 Jun 2012 1:29 a.m. PST

SWAT actions would be prefect, I'd say, Bill.

Lion in the Stars05 Jun 2012 1:33 a.m. PST

Those would be some seriously heavily armed criminals, if they could actually deal with a SWAT team…

Buckeye AKA Darryl05 Jun 2012 5:53 a.m. PST

Bay of Pigs, Grenada, Panama, Dominican 1965…all of these could be worked up as one booklet. Call it "Intervention" or something like that.

kallman05 Jun 2012 7:53 a.m. PST

Another vote for Arab-Israeli Wars.

CorpCommander Inactive Member05 Jun 2012 8:00 a.m. PST

I think SWAT/HR type actions are too small for Force on Force.

I think hypothetical future conflicts would be interesting though. I for one would love a "Battle Los Angeles" campaign for Tomorrow's War. I'd be interested in gaming various conflicts involving China.

A campaign book that took into effect political questions would be interesting. It would certainly provide a better view of how wars are actually fought. Taking out "bad guys" is great but if you destroy the irrigation system or blow up the local fuel supply you probably cause more harm to the local population than the enemy!

Late War WWII as a lot of people are using it for that now

I'd like to see a decent point system, which appears to be the primary reason why it's already fading at my local club.

Lion in the Stars05 Jun 2012 10:21 a.m. PST

Well, there is a points spreadsheet available from the AAG forum, but they freely admit it's not going to be perfect. No points system can be (look at how often two 'equal points' armies in Warhammer are completely unbalanced).

I will agree that more scenarios would be excellent, Force on Force needs as many scenarios as it can get!

Jedi vs Sith

That would be TW

RickinWhiteRock Inactive Member05 Jun 2012 2:45 p.m. PST

chechnya- particularly street fighting in Grozny

Gennorm05 Jun 2012 3:03 p.m. PST

AIW too.

Lobsterback05 Jun 2012 5:18 p.m. PST

Chechnya! And now you can add in potential Dagestan scenarios as well. Another book can be Georgia and some of the wars from the break-up of the USSR.

Armand Beaulieu Inactive Member07 Jun 2012 12:55 p.m. PST

Arab-Israeli wars again over here

CorpCommander Inactive Member07 Jun 2012 1:02 p.m. PST

Afghanistan: The Soviet Experience would be nice. Then we'd have a reason to re-watch The Beast and Rota 9.

Britain's small wars e.g. Aden and the Gulf, the Malayan Emergency, the Indonesian Confrontation, 'Peace Keeping' in Africa and the Balkans.

Notes made of all of these!



Grand Duke Natokina Inactive Member17 Jun 2012 2:06 p.m. PST

SWAT, Bill, would seem more AMbush Alley than FOF. The bad guys usually are less well equipped that the SWAT troops and don't have all the training.

Grand Duke Natokina Inactive Member18 Jun 2012 12:53 p.m. PST

Some British small wars. Chechnya and Soviets in Afghanistan.
I don't see the necessity for balancing forces. So FoF is good there.
