Here's some pictures from my upcoming events at Little Wars 2017. Danger Zone is a fast playing game of air combat in the Cold War set in an alternative history where NATO and the Warsaw Pact created a set of accords where mercenary units fight under strict rules of engagement and compensation outside the historical conflicts we all know.

I'm a huge fan of Check Your Six Jet Age and Air War C21, but I'm also a fan of Area 88 and the old video game Strike Commander, both of which featured mercenary air squadron combat set during the modern age. Danger Zone is probably closer to the Air War C21 level of complexity level but with the addition of easy to use altitude rules. If you've played WOTCs Angels 20, you might enjoy Danger Zone.

It's also a bit inspired by the old Fight in the Skies/ Dawn Patrol rules in how quickly you can get into and play a game. I created a set of rules that would allow you to use all your cold war era aircraft from the 50's through the 90's and beyond. Want to play F3H Demons versus Yak 28's? Want to mix it up with a squadron comprised of Sabres, Vampires, Mysteres and MiG 15s all on the same side? These rules allow for that, and include pilot growth, squadron management and running an air combat squadron for profit.

On to the minis and some of the terrain bits for the events I'm running at Little Wars coming up at the end of April.

Sounds pretty cool!

We started a CY6:JA campaign with just this sort of thing but it didn't last long.

Where can we gander at these rules?

I'm not planning to release until later this year, but I've sent out tester rules to folks interested. If you are interested, drop me a PM.
