Mountain tribes
« on: October 14, 2016, 09:19:54 AM »
We have played a few games using the Mountain tribe rules. Although biased I must say they were great fun.  The VC must get out of the valley. The mountain tribes accompanied by their A team Special forces is in pursuit.
It is quicker than the main game because there are no assets or searching.
I will get some pictures done ??

Please do!

At the risk of asking the obvious question: what figures are you using for the mountain tribes?

The right answer would of course be something along the lines of "test castings for PP's next new release"...

No proper figures at all yet. I think we will get the rules out to print first and then do the more figures

Martin,

Well, we'd better help you get those rules finished and published, then!

Any pictures of the Montagnard game? Looking forward to giving this a go when we get chance.

Love to join in if possible and if I have not played any with Martin beforehand.

There a number of figures in Martins ranges that would be suitable.

Talk to Martin and Nigel at PPHQ for sugestions.

Looking forward to the new Mountain tribe figures now that the Russian scouts are near completion.

And I expect there will be packs in the other ranges that will be usable as well. Particularly the AK47 range and some WW2 like 8th army and the forgotten army (Burma).

Mountain tribes figures in PP ranges
« Reply #10 on: August 04, 2017, 04:28:38 PM »
Need to start looking through PP ranges to find suitable figures in the AK47 and WW2 ranges to go with the new Mountain tribe figures.

Mmm... - did you say "Mountain Tribes", Les?

Now, that would be a good idea!  :D

Do please share your thoughts on mutatable figures: the combination of footwear - or lack thereof - and weapons in other ranges could prove a challenge to finding a good fit?

I was looking at the other PP ranges for figures, remember these are early war tribes not fully armed by the US so:-
ANCIENTS - pack 47 German archers, 26 peasants with rocks
DARK AGES - 10 berserkers
COLONIAL - 3 bare head dervish, 23 foot scouts
AK47 - 10 milita  bolt rifles, 18 wpn crew, 4 milita AK47
Remember most you would need is 5 cmd and 25 other bases plus dead.
1 pack of each would be enough and variety
Thoughts?

Stewart,

I'm not entirely sure about the Beserkers or the German rock-throwers (and their archers may need a light haircut?), but we could perhaps (sparingly) add the AK47 Militia packs #57, #142 and #143 to your list?

However, I still feel the need for a "core" of some specific Montagnard types (who would presumably be rather shorter than your average Ancient German / African / Dervish warrior too?). I was thinking that, while there might be the odd bow and arrow / crossbows, the majority would be armed with captured Japanese WW2 / French Indochina / VC / cast-off US WW2 weapons - if Martin has the energy to knock some up?

Agree, but it was just some primitive types to stand out against the VC, apparently they didn't have a lot of automatic weapons so not to many AK's
