Osprey Games have released their new rules set for playing small scale skirmishes and stealth missions with covert operations troops. The cover for Black Ops looks epic and the blurb sounds like it’s right up my street with a bit of near-future warfare…
“Black Ops is a skirmish wargame of tactical espionage combat that recreates the tension and excitement of modern action-thrillers such as the Bond and Bourne films. The fast-play rules keep all the players in the thick of the action, while the mission generator provides a wide range of options for scenarios – from stealthy extraction or surveillance missions to more overt raids and assaults.
Stealth, combat, and technical expertise all have a role to play, and players may recruit a number of different operative types – spies, mercenaries, criminals, hackers, special forces, and many more – to recruit the best possible team for the job.
Players may also choose to join a faction – powerful organizations, intelligence agencies, criminal syndicates, militaries, or rebel groups, each with a stake in international affairs. By doing so, their team may receive certain benefits, but may also find itself limited at a crucial time.
With the variety offered by the characters, factions, and scenarios, no two games of Black Ops should ever be the same!”
It’s time to break out a range of the modern humans from Hasslefree and strike against your friends in Splinter Cell stealth missions and more.
