The Quick and the Dead
I'd read some mixed reviews about these coastal forces rules but, as they were reduced over at Wargames Vault, I thought I'd take the plunge and order a set. I thought the card based turn-less approach looked interesting, along with the emphasis on fast play and 'off the cuff' decision making, which seems to me to be pretty much what it's all about. I think they're in the same vein as the TFL Coastal Patrol rules, which can't be a bad thing in my book.
The rules themselves are well presented and clearly explained, although with a bit of a homegrown production value about them, which I actually quite like. There are some good scenarios included although they're all from the Med so a bit limited in scope. However, I think the rules themselves might be rather good for a bit of fast and furious coastal warfare.
It's one of my supposed projects for this year as well!
