Rackham announce Confrontation skirmish game

Rackham Entertainment have announced an upcoming skirmish game in the Confrontation universe.

From their website:
As we announced previously, we are working on a skirmish game taking place in the Confrontation universe. So we selected the coolest minis from the range and have been hard at work getting some satisfying results. Project Groundhog (sounds better than Project Manhattan dunnit?) is the result of 13 versions of the coding matrix, 5 series of prototypes, hours of testing, a lot of yelling, countless burned neurons and broken army builds…et voilà. We are getting there. You learn it in 15 minutes and you are off playing games that last between 20 to 40 minutes each.

I thought Confrontation was skirmish?

Hawks & Wolves Campaign Pack released for Force on Force

Ambush Alley have released a new campaign book for Force on Force called, Hawks and Wolves.

From their announcement:
Hawks And Wolves is a three scenario mini-campaign pack that picks up where Indian Country left off! A grass-roots movement to drive the foreign jihadists from Irkala province in (fictional) Dawala has taken off and 2nd Platoon is right in the middle of it. Will Sheik Aban live long enough to see his movement take off or will his jealous neighbors and a vicious operative from a bordering nation kill him and his militia in one stroke? 2nd Platoon has their own ideas on how things should turn out, especially after one of their squads is targeted by highly efficient IED based ambush!

Hawks And Wolves contains:
• More fictional backdrop for Dawala and the men of 2nd Platoon
• 3 linked scenarios for Force on Force – perfect for a chapter in a platoon based campaign game
• Mixed Force action
• New rules for building searches

The PDF version of Hawks and Wolves is $10 US. This is a PDF only release

AT-43 releases postponed until late 2010

A post on the Rackham AT-43 forums indicates that releases for the game are postponed until the second half of 2010.
