I got a few sample of the recent BAOR range from Under Fire Miniatures and have got some paint on them.
An a close up of one of the miniatures (with some gravestones)…
They are really nice figures and I’m reliably informed that there are expansions to the range in the form of support weapons on the way.
A bit ago Bill and I went to see his friend Nick to playtest the latest army lists developed for Nick’s ruleset ‘Bush Horizons’. See the earlier game here.
There was a new amphibious assault army list as well as an air assault list; Bill went for the naval options whilst I was left with the helicopters. We both generated our forces and then got Nick’s wonderful toys organised.
We didn’t bother with any of the campaign systems as we wanted to just test the combat.
The helicopters allowed me the sieze the airfield objective in a coup de main assault very early. After that I just used my helicopters and aircraft to try and whilttle down Bill’s units as he approached… to be fair there wasn’t that much he could do be slowly approach and weather the storm, opposed beach landings are never good for the attacking troops.
A bit more cover on the table would have helped but Bill was unlucky not to down anything with his AA as I pushed my attacks quite aggresively.
As usual it wasa pleasure to use Nick’s models and i look forward to getting another chance to play.
