So last week we tried our hand at an "open plan"version of the classic skirmish game from Alternative Armies, "Firefight".. and there was much rejoicing!

Great fun to revisit this classic ruleset, some really innovative ideas, fast playing and dynamic

Firefight is a great set of rules. Glad to see it is still being played.

I remember stumbling across it back in 93/94 when 40k was just starting to get a little "is that it?" for me.. this was a revelation! Alternating activations, fast and furious scuffles in tiny buildings – immense fun

I wonder how Firefight would work for Vietnam?

Brilliantly, I would think 😀

I got my hopes up you meant R Talsorian's original combat system. It had miniature rules, after all.

Looks like you had a great fight there.
