Danger Close


I was enjoying the excellent modern rules guide over on the equally excellent Charge Blog today, when I noticed that Empress Miniatures have published their version of Some Corner of a Foreign Field, aptly retitled for ultra modern skirmish games as Danger Close

These are pretty much exactly the same as the original but have been given a spiffy facelift. I was thinking of using the rules as one option  for my Britain's Small Wars projects but may now also try them with the French Indochina project, even though they are designed for smaller squad level modern skirmish games. 

Incidentally, the Charge Blog is a fantastic resource for things to do with ultra modern 'imaginations' skirmish wargaming, so definitely well worth a look:

  1. Thanks for the link and the kind words! Always enjoy reading your posts although all the air combat posts are very tempting - it could be very easy to pick up a few planes as a side project.

  2. Jim,

    Good deal, I was wondering what happened to Matt's rules. And I agree, I've been reading the Charge blog lately, really poured over the modern rules comparison posts.

    Back to "Some Corner of a Foreign Field/Danger Close," I was privileged to playtest those rules for Matt, played out 19 separate fights in the Vietnam era:

    Take a gander if you've got a minute ;)

    V/R,
