Played a wild game with my FFL in the Congo using everyone's favorite legionnaire. Found here:

Enjoy

Joe,

Thank you, Sir, makes me very happy to see you doing modern fights, I love it! I really dig the flavor, what with the pop star, the Legion, Iron Mike, etc…, and "the pilots died of embarrassment…" cracked me up.

I see you picked up the Khurasan PMCs; those are fantastic troops, ain't they? And I don't think we've seen that red pickup with the Ma Deuce on top, pretty cool.

But wait: the Gov't troops hit the French VAB with an RPG? Wowsers… And then took down the former SOF troops? That's some fancy footwork! Oh, for goodness' sake, Joe! Ya can't fire an ATGM at the vehicle holding the hostage!!! I love it: "Hope Britney survives…"

Sgt Bomba is a stud, but the cancelled air had to throw a serious crimp in his plans. What a great fight, thanks for sharing.

V/R,
Jack

Great scenario and write-up but I have to agree with Just Jack, ya can't shoot an ATGM at the vehicle holding the hostage! What if her makeup got mussed? wink

Awesome. Thanks.

Nice. As a side note, I wonder how many pennies have been taken out of circulation in order to serve the more useful purpose of being a toy soldier base.

Nice battle report, Joe.

Now, whatever the period/subject, this is how a wargame should be FUN!

Thank you all for the nice comments! Yes Gutsy move by Cpl Howell firering the ATGM but it worked. 2 men did die in the APC.
Jack, yes those contractors were Khurasan as was Britney. They make some nice figures. The red pick up has been around. It is Peter Pig. Just need to find some crew figures for it.

79th, lots of pennies and a few pence from when I was stationed in England but you can't find cheaper bases!

Buck, thanks. Still love your Combat Patrol cards and use them every battle!

TVAG-- Agree most heartily!

Ray,
Thanks.
Jack, don't know. Don't have as much game time as you. Might do a Vietnam game ( read a great article about a rapid reaction force up near the DMZ and could finally use my ontos) or another cruel seas game (am reading Night Action by Capt Dickins). I know which one you would prefer!

Joe,

Don't have as much time???? Did you sleep last night? If so, you have time to game ;)

That ‘Nam QRF, with Ontos, sounds mighty sexy…

V/R,

Joe…

I hope to read more about the (in)famous Bomba.

Games with characters always seem to be more fun.

Archer
Agree. with me it is all about the story. It is great when you can follow a character along several battles. Bomba has been in 3 so far. Who knows what trouble he will be in next.
Jack. Sorry man. Testing out a new scenario for Flotilla Forward

Always the bridesmaid… ;)

There is still time…

Are you fishin', Joe?

It's okay if you are, I just want you to know you're barking up the wrong tree. I hear us Marines is what you'd call irresistible ;)

V/R,
Jack
