I just got a preview copy of Contact Front from Joe Veltre, owner of Gods Eye Games and a frequent contributor to History to Wargames. I have been on the lookout for a set of modern era rules that provides the depth and complexity level that I am looking for. It’s a tough period to cover and I no easy nerd to please but I am interested to see how Carl Titterington new rules set takes on the complexities of the period.
The set bills itself as a platoon sized rules for modern conflicts and the core rulebook covers the British experience in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2006. The intent of the rules is to focus on real issues junior officers face on the ground fighting a modern insurgency.
Stay tuned for an indepth review in the next few days.
