Tomorrow's War : Second Edition

From Boardgame Geek:

This entirely new shiny edition of Tomorrow's War is now
a game on its own, and is no more considered an
expansion of the Force on Force basic rules. It is also the
first one to be actually printed,
************************************************
A previous sort of "beta" edition was just sold as a .pdf
and as an expansion for the Force on Force basic game.
Extended play testing and feedback has permitted the
developing of a stand-alone game.
************************************************
From the Introduction in the book:
Tomorrow’s War is a science fiction military miniature
war game with emphasis on "hard" science fiction rather
than "Space Opera" or "Science Fantasy." This rule book
contains background material for gaming in
Ambush Alley's campaign setting, but the rules
themselves are not background dependent. You can use
them to game gritty science fiction engagements against
whatever narrative backdrop you choose.
Tomorrow’s War can be played with figures of any scale.

Cave Of The Condor























These are from a now defunct game system called Terminus V, a
post apocalyptical setting where there were no air assets used. It
had great potential but sadly the creators health prevented further
expansion.

Tanker's Tuesday: T55E1 Gun Motor Carriage




The T55 Gun Motor Carriage has it origins in the
experimental 8x8 desert vehicle designed by Cook
Brothers. They started by building a chassis that
joined two powered 4x4 bogies, each with its own
engine, into an 8x8 vehicle. This unusual vehicle
steered by pivoting the entire front bogie.

It became known as Cook’s Cozy Cabin because of
its box-like shape. Little interest was shown in this
all-terrain vehicle by the US Army, but Cook Brothers
began work on an experimental tank destroyer.

What's An Evil Empire Without A Brass Band?


I saw this on Ebay and just had to have one! In gaming
terms it has absolutely no value but, I've never let that
stop me before. I'll probably do a head swap on these
before I'm done.
