    Description

    FutureWarCommander is a wargame in line with Blitzkrieg Commander: Fast-Play Tabletop Wargame Rules for Combined-Arms Operations, 1936-45 and Cold War Commander: Fast-Play Tabletop Wargame Rules for Combined-Arms Operations, 1946+.

    FutureWarCommander is an exciting wargame that allows you to re-create battles of the future using miniatures on a tabletop. Command anything from a company right up to a division and get a result in 2-3 hours without becoming bogged-down in detail. Suitable for any scale miniatures from 2mm right up to 28mm (including 6mm, 10mm, 15mm and 20mm) and no re-basing is required.

    The rules come as a 140-page A4-sized perfect bound book with over 60 full colour pictures that illustrate how to play the game. These feature real miniatures as you see them on the gaming table. You also get a double-sided A4-sized quick reference sheet.

    The game can be played at one of three levels: 1 base = 1 Platoon (the scale the game was designed for), 1 base = 1 Squad or Individual Vehicle, or 1 miniature = 1 Soldier or Vehicle. The ground scale is 1cm = 20m or 1cm = 10m respectively. One turn represents up to 30 minutes of real-life action.
