Load and Return

This is a really interesting and unusual idea. I'm surprised that no one has thought of this before but it's pure genius, combining air wargaming with aerial firefighting, all in 1/600th scale. What a great concept and one I'm really looking forward to hearing more about. You can find out more via Remi's new blog:

  1. Interesting idea- I know there have been boardgames on fire fighting before and also I know of at least one figure game too. Not seen an aircraft game though.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

    1. Thank you!

      I know some boardgames like Hotshots or Flash Point but no figure gamegames. If you remember the names I would be happy to know them =)!

      I have always missed this type of game !

      Regards.

  4. Looks interesting. I remember a computer game in the Toronto Science Museum back in 1987 that covered fighting forest fires. Deeply engaging stuff.

  5. Sounds great! Finally something beyond bombing and shooting other minis. The family will be delighted to do something "useful" in a miniature game. Really looking forward to more.
