We play a game of LaserGrenadiers in which we pull out the “convention box” and use those forces in a scenario from Wargames Illustrated #365 titled “Best Laid Plans” by Mike Bradford. The scenario involves two forces moving into a town to capture supplies. As the game progresses, one of the adversaries will receive reinforcements, but neither side knows which will receive them. For the full story, please read the attached file.
The article attached below provides the factors I assigned to use Badger Game’s Drantakh infantry in LaserGrenadiers. The article gives the weapons I assigned and the characteristics I chose for armor class, movement and morale for three units: an infantry squad, a heavy machinegun section and a light mortar section.
The file below reports on the re-release and expansion by Badger Games of the Drantakh sci-fi troopers originally produced by Regiment Games.
The original eight “Light Troopers” have been expanded to 12 infantry and 8 command figures, supported by antitank launchers, flamethrowers, heavy lasers, heavy machineguns, mortars, spotters, communication specialists and medics. This is an exciting development for fans of these figures, and much more is apparently in the pipeline.
