Well the first Afghan engagement using Skirmish Sangin is under the belt and I'm impressed. The system is designed for 28mm figures, ultra low level with the ground scale equalling the figure scale so you have to be very careful calling in that support when the average table equates to about 100m x 100m!!!
My Afghan stuff is 20mm so it was easy enough to alter the rule distances. 1" = 2m for 28mm so you could go for 2cm = 2m or to simplefy it further 1cm = 2m, its up to you. Even in 28mm we're only looking at a 3' x 3' table.
The action took place on a 2' x 2' terrain tile with some compounds shoved on. As part of a larger engagement we had a 3PARA fire team engaged by 3 $10 Taliban. I'll apologise for the photos in advance as I haven't bothered to tidy them up. First off is a shot of the table, the Talibs wil be deploying at the small building where Abdul the goat is tethered underneath the Mulberry tree. The Brits are entering at the edge at the bottom of the shot.
I've purposely not gone in to all the rules but it played out very well, the system is detailed but quite elegant but if you have more than a couple of fireteams you're gonna need multiple players per side.
To reitterate if you're gaming Afghan buy these rules !!!
