#15 w/The Bear & The Jackal


This Colossally Colorful Issue Contains Articles, Scenarios, and a Heroes of the Gap Expansion Module: The Bear & The Jackal!

The Bear & The Jackal (TB&TJ) contains nine fierce firefights from the Soviet-Afghan War. It expands Heroes of the Gap, and utilizes new David Julian-drawn counters of Mujahideen and Soviet forces, and is played on two plus-sized (approximately 9.5” x 16.5”) geomorphic maps drawn by Marc von Martial. Grab an RPG-7 and find a rocky place to hide behind: there’s a Soviet convoy coming down the road!

Also in this issue are battle reports from A Ring of Hills and Baltic Fury and articles on Falling Stars, the evolution of a house rule in Band of Heroes, and on the history and tactics of the Soviet-Afghan War. And Mark Roche’s gripping tale from the realm of Warparty, “The Battle for Darg-Noth”, comes to a conclusion with its third and final installment.

How about some scenarios? In addition to the nine scenarios in TB&TJ, there are three scenarios for the Nations at War series: two for White Star Rising and one for White Star Rising / Operation Cobra. Six scenarios continue to flesh out the World at War battlefield, including two that use a new American recon formation, A Troop/1-4 Cavalry, which features two platoons of M113 ACAVs. Both of these scenarios use components from The Untold Stories and Into the Breach, as does a third, “Crossing Points,” designed by Jeff Schulte. Matt Lohse adds another pair of scenarios for Baltic Fury (Line of Fire #14). And Arrigo Velicogna sets the stage for a clash of armor between the Soviets and the Chinese1. That’s 18 total scenarios!!
