Modern Rule Sets

Post by gpfredette » Mon Jun 27, 2011 3:26 am

Good day,

I am thinking of getting into Modern Miniatures and was wondering what the best set of rules were?

Has any one used the Micro-Armor Modern rules and if so are they any good?

Thank you,

I've enjoyed Metal Storm http://warwickwargames.com/about1.html, but it's about small engagements - company sized or so. Just simple enough to keep the game moving which can be important in moderns to keeping that pressured decision feeling.

The newest they have is Vietnam. The rules are: Charlie Don't Surf is a set of wargames rules for the Vietnam War that are designed to reflect the realities of asymmetrical warfare. Designed for games of roughly company size (between two and four platoons per side being typical) the rules use a system of dual victory conditions, military and political, to allow balanced games where both Free World and Communist forces can do battle with equal chance of success.

You could give "Modern Spearhead" a look, I just picked up the rules myself and they dont look to complicated and they have an excellant yahoo group that is very much active.
"Dont be a DB, Feedback helps everyone"
"Common sense isn't common, if it were most people would have it."
"If your rating is lower than mine, You ship first if not I'll ship first...Equals, We ship at the same time".

one of the best micro armor rule sets was MBT. It was a chit based game that was in fact meant to be enjoyed as a micro armor rule set for GHQ minis back in the day.
