FIRING.....FIRING in distance...........
This ambush was played out with 11 figures, 2 model cars and a smattering of terrain. One thing it proved was how versatile the figures we've bought are. In this instance, the SAS were armed civvy figures whilst the Free Taffs came from Stonewall's ex-Hotspur Falklands SAS & SBS.
Rules used were Cold War: 1983 by Steve Blease. The Free Taffs had 'Bottles' of 4 and 5 but nevertheless put rounds down on their targets and did a lot of damage to Alpha Two One before the survivors withdrew.
The game was almost cinematic with plenty of action - Cold War: 1983 gave a crackingly good game and over in just 20 minutes.
