About the Project

For the past few years I've been running my wargames blog at https://hntdaab.co.uk/blog, cranking out a post a week talking about Ultramodern Wargaming (post 2001ish). Topics vary, from looking at recent releases and older ranges to tactics to battle reports (when I can get a game in).

This is part 4 of an ongoing series on my blog looking at force selection for ultramodern wargaming.

In the first two posts in this series, we took a look at the basics of building a force, with posts looking at both task specific teams for infantry and the basics of vehicle use. In this part, we’re going to continue the theme of irregular forces (that we looked in post 3). As with previous parts, this article is designed primarily for Spectre Operations but many of the tactics are valid in all modern skirmish games.

This week’s post is now up! Rolling on from last week’s Strykers, we’re taking a look at the Empress US Infantry range.

“When going back to do my Range Impression on the Empress SAS, I found myself delving into the release history of Empress. Which of course reminded me of their second release set, the US Army Infantry. Having just finished the Strykers, now seemed the perfect time to get the last couple of figures finished and take a look at this range.”

This week’s post is up! We’re taking a look another vehicle for all you US Army fans, the Styker ICV and MGS from Empress.

“Playing as US force in Ultramodern tabletop wargaming is like being a kid with a box of toys. There are so many options that are available! On one side, you could be rolling around in technicals as SF advisers alongside local troops. Alternatively, you could break out the heavy metal and plonk the Bradleys and Abrams on the table. An interesting option is to roll out with a Stryker Brigade Combat Team and all the vehicles it includes.”

Hey! Just to extend the stuff written up top. I’m going to be posting snippets of my blog writing here and then linking back to my site.

If you’re looking for some good starting point, here are a few of my best posts:

THE GREAT BIG MODERN WARGAMING RULES COMPARISON COMPLETE EDITION – A comparison of the various modern wargaming rules

DEMO GAME – OPERATION DRAGON’S HOARD – A project log of me creating a demo game for Skirmish Sangin. Yes, that is a crashed C130

PROJECT HUMVEE – INITIAL IMPRESSIONS – My first impression of the recently released Spectre Humvees

BATTLE REPORT – “CLIMB TO GLORY” – SKIRMISH SANGIN – A reccent battle report showing the US Army going up against Insurgents in Bazistan

The schedule for every week is:
Monday: Wargaming Week – My hobby update and Ultramodern Wargaming News
Wednesday: Side Project Day – any updates on side projects goes here. Won’t be every week but should be relatively frequent
Friday: Something for the Weekend – your weekly dose of Ultramodern Wargaming

Finally, here’s a sneak peek into what tomorrow’s post will be looking at. It’s a big green, 8-wheeled machine.
