Interesting new releases from Osprey Publishing

Osprey Publishing have just announced their wargames rules publishing schedule for 2013

Amongst the titles are three of particular interest:

OWG 4 Ronin – Skirmish Wargames in the Age of the Samurai – Samurai skirmish rules, what’s not to like? (I even have the figures already!)

OWG 5 Of Gods and Mortals – Mythological Wargame Rules – a set of rules written by Andrea Sfiligoi (he of Songs of Blades and Heroes fame).
There is a discussion of these ongoing on the songofblades Yahoo! Group and they sound really interesting – mixing Gods, Heroes and mere mortal infantry of various Mythos in skirmish combat with each other using the SoBH gaming engine…another use for my 28mm Vikings – having them fighting with Thor sounds like an awesome prospect. Looking forward to this one.

FOF 8 Classified – Special Operations Missions 1940-2010 – I first heard about this at Salute. FOF returning to it’s Ambush Alley roots with a small force of Special Forces against larger forces.

Looks like my proposed resolution to buy fewer wargames rules next year has failed before it’s even begun.

  1. No self respecting Viking would ever fight against Thor. Thor was arguably the most loved of all the Norse deities.

  2. I think it means “with” as in “alongside”…

  3. I utterly blame the M&M podcast for the fact that eversince I started listening about a year ago I bought four new rulesets (plus some free ones). 😉

    Interesting releases indeed. The Feudal Japanese bug hasn’t gotten near me yet but this Special Forces thing sounds very interesting, especially as I currently do my wargaming solo for the most part. I assume that this is a FoF supplement and not a standalone thing?

  4. Neil, My apologies, I think the language gap between “Birminghamian” & Australian is much broader than I realised. 🙂
