That said, I needed a quick game for our next session, so developed a rapid PMC scenario in the troubled country of Redbullistan, using Ivan Sorenson's old (and free) 'Fast and Dirty' rules (these are pre-5core).
Some nice concepts in a game which saw the worst quality troops in good numbers vs the elite/outnumbered...
The old get to the embassy and hold it scenario.
Alternate activation and best of two six siders etc. for mechanisms.
We did have a lot of discussion of how rules should work in this 'period' in order to maintain focus and exciting gameplay.
A nice game, but post game discussion made very interesting through potential Crossfire Crossover for this genre.
In other news, picked these up, they read much better than I thought they might. (Fantasy version of Lion Rampant by Osprey).
And can't wait for this set. C17th version. Some playtesting online as we speak.
