Empress – Queeg project update ….
Just a quick note that we’re excited to let people know that we’re currently working down the path in developing a set of modern wargaming rules with the lads at Empress Miniatures. The rules are aimed Company Battlegroup / Combined Arms sized games and are a larger scale partner to the Empress Danger Close Skirmish rules. Aimed at around a reinforced Infantry platoon with support teams and around 6 – 9 vehicles per side it does however scale up or down easily depending on your game preference (or megalomania) 🙂 Either way it’s a chance to get some of those lovely vehicles on the table …..
As you can see in the post below this one testing is currently going well and even better than we expected. Anyway, we (the Queegs – Craig and I) look foward to being able to update on progress and also post what are going to be some supporting and interesting modelling projects.

Just thought that we should share some information.
We are currently working on a set of rules for ‘BIG’ games. Containing tanks, vehicles, infantry units, helicopters, support artillery, etc. In other words a set to recreate true war scenarios at company, and perhaps larger, on your table in an evening.
Working with Brent (Queeg) and Craig (one of the original guys behind Skirmish Sangin), the project is aiming at bringing a very full on modern reenactment experience to a table near you with us not forgetting that this is a tactical game that is designed for entertainment. Play testing of the mechanics are under way and working well.
Release date is difficult to say but we are aiming for early next year or ASAP as we want to play them ; )
As stated early days but we will update you all as they develop and no doubt get into asking for ideas, opinions, help, etc in the not too distant future.
Here are few pictures of the original play test to add a bit of atmosphere.
