Not every operation that the military does is going to be known to the public. There’s all sorts of deeply covert missions going on all the time using teams of super-highly-trained soldiers. These various teams are surgical in their strikes, taking out key enemy personnel and locations. And soon, you’ll be able to bring these high-tension missions to your tabletops with Plausible Deniability, a new supplement for Skirmish Sangin that’s available for pre-order now.
With the zombie apocalypse, there’s bound to be those that haven’t yet been eaten or infected. There wouldn’t be much of a story otherwise. You’d just have zombies milling around going, “braaaaaaains.” Not exactly engaging for a story, film, or game. So, it’s with that in mind that The Phalanx Consortium and Radio Dishdash are running a Kickstarter campaign for some Skirmish Outbreak survivor minis.
I bless the rains down in Africa.
Or maybe I don’t, since I’m not a part of Toto (even if I do feel love isn’t always on time). Radio Dishdash has released Skirmish Afrika, their new modern African military expansion for Skirmish Sangin. It might just be raining lead down in Africa.
