Jungle Warfare gets under your skin.

This scenario very much takes Hellfire back to its beginnings. Many years ago I ran a scenario where I wanted to somehow get the troops to act like people.

So over the years people who’ve used the rules with their epic figures have commented that using Hellfire, their space marines behave like the ones in the novels thatContinue reading “Space marines, playing the books not the rules”
