Salute 2019 – Modern Warfare

All the cool kids are gaming modern warfare right now and accordingly there were a number of choices at Salute 2019.

I was very tempted to pick up the rules for Spectre and some figures to recreate scenarios from Narcos but in the end decided to postpone such a project. Any wargame that can justify the use of a swimming pool and sun chairs is a winner for me however.

Another favourite of mine in terms of setting is Wild in the Streets, which I bought the Straight Edge crew for previously. The lack of terrain is holding me back but I might go for a less authentic approach and use the figures with my cyberpunk Infinity terrain.
