Part Three of my modern forces for Africa has arrived, and these are once again Rebel Minis from the 'Bongolesia' battle box, which is a super deal containing almost 30 government troops, four contractors/mercenaries, and almost 30 rebels/freedom fighters. This installment deals with the rebels, to whom I've also attached four Special Forces types left over from the Rebel Minis Special Forces pack I bought (and posted previously, here: http://blackhawkhet.blogspot.com/2015/08/forces-for-modern-middle-east-part-1.html). The SF guys are trained in unconventional warfare and are here to train and organize the rebels.
So, in the scenario background I have floating around in my head, you have a government element and a rebel element, with the gov't troops trying to maintain power and the rebels trying to take over power. The gov't hires some mercenaries to help train and organize them, while a sympathetic country sends in SF guys to train and organize the rebels. There's one more piece to the puzzle, but that will be in my next post.
Lets get to the rebels.
Well, that's that. I didn't receive my 20mm figs this weekend, so I'm still not ready to start my Balkans campaign (fingers crossed they get here by Wednesday and I can paint them up Friday and play Saturday), but I've been working on other stuff to post here, so stay tuned.
