Yesterday's Tomorrow's War game

Pictures of a TW game at my home. We played a scenario that I wrote for Stargrunt II years ago based on the Blackhawk Down events. A shuttle carrying the President and his bodyguard crashes in a jungle deep in enemy territory. Com equipment is down and they dare not leave the wreck. Marines will need to reach them and escort them to one of three LZs nearbyto be picked up by a transport VTOL. In the meantime enemy troops close in on the shuttle wreck. The Marines have a VTOL gunship for air support and two transports.

The table setup. Lots of trees! The crash site is In the middle of the table.

One of the transports made from an old HappyMeal toy.
An enemy Combat Walker (Rebel Minis). 

The gunship hovering over the crash site while Marines approach the wreck.

RH Miniatures Marines on the ground. Faced with the Rebels coming in all around them in ever-increasing numbers and with no reinforcements their losses amounted to over 50% during the game.

The President (on the phone, trying to reach help) and his bodyguard in the wreck.

Enemy jungle fighters moving through the jungle

The gunship strafing the jungle with devastating effect. I over-armoured the gunship somewhat, making it practically invulnerable for the Rebel's RPG's.

Here the president is running toward the transport. No Rebel units where nearby so he made a safe run off te table.


  1. Great table and scenario! I really like your air assets.

  2. Indeed a great looking table and entertaining batrep!

  3. Lovely table and report. Like the re-purposed HM ship as well!

  4. really like the use of the caesar insurgents!cool looking game!

  5. Great looking table and game report. I especially like the trees -- so many of them! That's a very believable jungle.

  6. Absolutely fantastic.

    I've been working on some post-apoc stuff myself using 20mm figures recently and your game pictures look superb, just what I'm aiming at. Love the gunship and transport conversions.
