Wargame Rules for the 21st Century

Sabresquadron is the new set of rules for company-level wargaming from the Cold War to the Digital Age. The rules are fast-moving and easy to pick up, and cover all the important factors including helicopters, guided missiles, the latest armours, engineering, drones and electronic warfare, through a set of robust and consistent mechanisms. In a period that is awash with technology Sabresquadron represents the major elements but emphasises troop quality and the importance of the right tactics - the successful commander will use technology but not be a slave to it. Although this is a mechanised era we don't forget the infantry so one can go to Goose Green with 2 Para as well as to 73 Easting with 2ACR, and there are specific rules for urban combat. More

What is the Plan?

Sabresquadron is available for purchase directly from us or through major wargames retailers. If you want to get a sample of what is in store, a free basic version is available to introduce the main ideas and give you a chance to get your minis on the table as soon as possible. We have started the process of expanding the equipment data. An expanded datasheet is available for download as well as datacards for several countries. These are, and will be, free to download. We'll also be releasing a range of supplements to cover the main armies and conflicts of the era. The first, covering the Warsaw Pact forces facing NATO's Central Front in the 1980s, is available to buy. The rules and supplement can be ordered here"
