Kem Var Intercept team ambushed Rus-Energia security escorting a high-value asset through a light industrial center. Home-brew rules called ‘Cleared to Engage” in effect. Valiant effort by the Kem-Var but the steel glacier prevailed. Obfu gear ain’t nuthin’ in a storm of 7.62mm rounds, baby.

Speaking of Science Fiction…

My next book is out. Shift Tense – Red Flags is available now at Amazon. The lads of Eshu International find themselves in the cross-fire of a nasty little civil war in future Somaliland.

Description:
What’s the first rule of a gunfight? Bring a bigger gun.

Hired to end a vicious civil war, Eshu International’s job is simple: infiltrate the rebel SPLM army, kill the radical commander, Professor Harun Abdul Hamid, then get back to Belfast to enjoy the payday.

But nothing is ever that easy. New enemies stalk the battlefield while old ones seek revenge. Tam, Jace, Poet9 and the Triplets face Somali pirates, child soldiers, rival mercenaries, killer drones… and it’s just the beginning.

Shift Tense – Red Flags. Part One of the next action-packed Eshu International thriller.

***

RED FLAGS is the start of a three-part series that will be released in electronic format over the course of 2013. The full novel will be available in print and ebook Q1 2014.

The first book in the series – RUNNING BLACK – is HERE.

MERCS USCR

Picked up a MERCS USCR Starter on eBay. Love MERCS figs, the skirmish-level gaming concept, the versatile starter teams, but the rules leave me underwhelmed. I have KemVar and Keizai Waza factions, an expanded FCC force, a proxy CCC unit (modified some Heresy Miniatures troopers) and I’ve had my eye on the big boys of the USCR for a while. Something about the pea-head helmets turned me off.

Until I found these, that is: MaxMini heads X-acto and dremel tool, fast and dirty pjs and now it’s yippy ki-yay, mother Russia.

Now if I can get some gaming in….
