TOTAL: 152 points

Next up is a large batch of 15mm sci-fi troops. This will finish all sci-fi and skirmish figures on hand.

Deciding if I will place one more order with Khurasan for figures and some vehilces or start my WW2 Brits.

Got in a Force on Force game with my son using his company vs some of the Khurasan Federal Army troops.

Gangland campaign

Another pair of  Flying Lead battle with my son using his gang. In the first, his team held off the police until dark and then sliped away but had another member taken prisoner.

Holed up at a small farm complex.

Federal Police and and Agents ready to attack.
In the second game, his gang had to knock out the commo tower to eliminate the coordinated pursuit. If they succeed, the gang would get a chance to rest and refit.
Contract security troops guard the commo tower.

The gang emerges from the woods with a concentrated attack.

Early success almost makes it a short mission.

More guards emerge from the building and pin the team down.

The new guy plants the charge and blows the tower.

The group begins to escape at the sound of an approaching helo.

The helo drops a SF team that takes one gang member into custody.
Two fun games. The gang has not had a member killed, but three are held by the authorities. Next battle will be an ambush on the prisoner transfer convoy.
