With Tomorrow's War, Ambush Alley Games and Osprey Publishing have taken the opportunity to revise the presentation of the Force on Force rules they published earlier this year whilst adding various sci-fi elements, and on the whole I'd say that it has worked extremely well.

The quality of the book is excellent, a satisfyingly weighty hardback (260 pages) printed on magnificent glossy pages in full colour. The quality of the pages should help it stand up to regular gaming use, as my inadvertent test shows; I was eating an orange as I flicked through mine, it squirted onto one page but I was able to use a damp cloth to wipe it clean without the moisture penetrating the surface at all. It has also been proofread/spell checked better than Force on Force, I haven't spotted any errors so far. One thing I'm slightly disappointed by is the cover. Don't misunderstand; Des Hanley's painting is a great piece of artwork in its own right, but it does give the look of a Games Workshop Imperial Guard codex, which is a shame. I've heard that Osprey Publishing decided they wanted the cover changed at the last minute, what looked like being the original cover clearly differentiates the book from others on the market so it's a pity they didn't go with that one.

So, what's inside the book? After the expected foreword (this time from Jon Tuffley of Ground Zero Games), discussion of game scale and suitable figures, the book launches into a description of their in-house sci-fi setting. Unlike some games companies, they make it clear from the start that this is only the setting they use for their own games, and the rules are designed for use with any setting that you choose.

Osprey are entering the SF wargaming field with Tomorrow's War.

Physical Production: Not bad at all. You get a hardback 250 page book for £15. The artwork is surprisingly so-so for Osprey. It doesn't compare with GW or even small independents like Warlord.

Back Story: Not very exciting. It isn't tomorrow's war it's today's war. With these rules a player can refight Iraq or Afghanistan dressed up a bit. The backstory is very derivative. It's Stargrunt, only written as an American rather than a British wish list. 2300AD is politically identical to 2000AD with America as top nation (although it now has a higher living standard than other first world nations), the UK as Batavians to America's Rome, plucky little allies, and so on. The black hats are Islamacists, North Korean style military dictatorships, and Soviets. It is slightly amusing that American colonies that are more economically powerful still owe allegiance to the mother nation across the light years. That was not the British experience. :)

The science of 2300 is strangely patchy. Antigravity and FTL spacecraft are commonplace but soldiers still walk around battlefields clutching rifles and driving tanks. The life sciences do not seem to have moved forward at all, which is odd given the rise of molecular biology.

One point did make me smile. The suggestion that hovercraft-tanks can cross water. It reminds me of the old joke about the man who stopped his lorry before a flimsy bridge to bang on the side. When the constabulary enquired what he was up to, he explained that his cargo was live pigeons and that he was banging the lorry panels to make them fly up in alarm - and so lighten the lorry before crossing the bridge.

Still, none of this matters very much.

A book for all those wargamers who have science fiction figures from a number of different manufacturers and would like to put them all to use. Although the publication has its own background this is not mandatory and any figures or background can be used. The best size for the average force here is 15mm - 20mm although smaller games with 28mm are possible.
