Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this new set of wargaming rules, Osprey (in conjunction with Ambush Alley Games), presents two modern-era wargames: Force on Force and Ambush Alley.

Force on Force is a wargame for symmetrical, kinetic engagements between professional forces in the modern era. The rules cover all aspects of modern warfare from the confidence and supply level of troops to air-strikes and off-board artillery and incorporate tailored mechanics that allow the same rule-set to accommodate scenarios set anywhere from the end of World War II to the conflicts on today's news without sacrificing either character or playability. From infantry and armor to artillery and air support, Force on Force presents everything gamers need to recreate post-war warfare between conventional, combined-arms forces.

The book also contains Ambush Alley, the incredibly popular modern miniature wargame that allows players to recreate the intense counter-insurgency actions in an urban environment that have become the hallmark of 21st century warfare. The rules mechanics revolve around a universal mechanic that is easy to grasp but supports a high level of detail and rewards sound tactical play. The game's dynamic turn sequence captures the turmoil of the modern city fight and integrated "fog of war" keeps things chaotic and unpredictable! While Ambush Alley shares familiar game mechanics with Force on Force, it is a standalone game, and allows players to recreate a vastly different style of modern conflict.

One of the most stream-lined and tactically challenging set of wargames rules ever written, Force on Force is a must-have for anyone interested in modern battlefield leadership or for those who just enjoying pushing toy soldiers around a table.
