As some of you may know, I have been busy working away on a Post War version of Chain of Command in conjunction with Richard Clarke of TooFatLardies and I thought it about time I gave an update, so here goes!!
The first thing to say is that the structure and time periods are not yet set in stone. We will be covering the period from about 1960 – 1990 but we need to see whether the period between 1945 and 1960 is best done as supplements to the WW2 version of the rules or as supplements to the Post War ones. With the latter period, it is also a question of how far the rules will stretch to cover and at what point we need to stop.
At the moment, the plan is a core set of rules backed up by conflict specific scenarios – The Cold War, Vietnam and Indo China being the ones at the top of the pile, but with others to follow after that.
And what stage are we at? Initial playtesting. We have a mature enough set of concepts to expose them to some real action testing and so the next couple of months will be devoted to that. For me, that means lots of Cold War action. My Brits will face off against the Soviet horde on Friday (report to follow) with further engagements planned for the 26th of Feb and the 19th of March. So stay tuned for more over the coming weeks!!
