Merry Xmas Mr Sankara

Soon to be available at Wargame Vault

Nick 'Bozkashi' Jones has very kindly sent me a copy of his Merry Christmas Mr Sankara campaign rules for the Agacher War, which use the Wings at War Thud Ridge rules for aerial combat. I'm really impressed with the thought that has gone into the campaign system and with the quality of the text, tables and photos, all of which make this an excellent adjunct to the Wings at War system. 

In fact, it allows you to break away from the parameters of the rules and use them for a narrative campaign, which is a great way to have the best of both worlds. I'm thinking of bending the campaign mechanisms into an Alto Cenepa War framework and I know Nick is working on something similar for the Football War, which is obviously something I'd be keen to take for a spin. Thanks Nick!

  1. I've followed the campaign on his blog, it looked excellent. I'll be raising forces to play it out myself.

    An Alto Cenepa War version would be much welcomed in these parts.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

  5. Thanks for the shout out Jim, I've not heard back from Paul yet so I'm going to publish without the Wings at War tables (they were just for ease of reference anyway) so hopefully the campaign will be available over the weekend on Wargames Vault.

    All the best,

    Nick
