Salute was its usual high performing self and without a doubt the highpoint of the show for me was getting to play a pre-release version of "Fighting Season" the new adaptation of "Chain of Command" for Afghanistan and Iraq . The supplement is a collaboration between Rich Clarke and Leigh Neville, who is a friend of mine, and is due out in the summer.
I'm not intending to go into a long winded review of the rules, these are only a test version at the moment, but what I will say is that these are looking to be the system of choice for Afghanistan and Iraq at the platoon level. The collaboration was obviously worked really well, Rich Clarke is one of the leading tabletop wargame designers and Leigh Neville has the up to date military knowledge of systems, units, and tactics that give the feeling that your out there in the irrigation ditches and the heat!
A fuller review will be forthcoming when the rules are released. Its always good to regularly check the Lardies blog for up to date news, the links here, toofatlardies
On the gaming front I've been playing a little Ambush Alley again and the photos below are some recent additions to my 20mm setup. First up are a couple of contractors, figures are Liberation.
The first is a Confederate artillery stand, this has been on eBay but there were a few issues with the buyer so its available again. 28mm by the Perrys when they worked for Foundry.
