Think this game could be fun, planning to give it a spin with a mate proxying in infinity models before were willing to invest dollarydoos.

Question for those that have played though, how many points gives a good sized game?? In playing with it and it seems like 50-75 is a good number of points to have a good mix of troops. Obviously the militia/organised criminal types will have bulk more guys.

Also keen to hear about peoples thoughts on the game. Obviously more of a narrative driven game, which is cool by me, dont really play competitively any more.

Cheers, Ronin

I've had my eye on it, but haven't got a copy yet. Also interested to hear feedback if anyone has any.

Tabletop Empires stock the rulebook and are always great to deal with if you're looking for somewhere local to grab it smile.gif

Cheers man. I have a digital copy but always try to buy a hard copy if I try the game and decide I like it.

Will put my thoughts up here if I can ever wrangle an hour to myself for a game.

Boys over on Power Stance Gaming have spoken about Black Ops before its not as crunchy as other moderns systems. More of a 90's Hollywood action feel than a gritty modern take shooter basically.

Worth a look in especially since its Osprey and therefore model agnostic game and you can use what ever you have at hand or can source reliably.
