Wars of Insurgency: Skirmish Warfare in the Modern World

Watermarked PDF

"Rise up and free your country from its oppressors!"

  • Simple fast-play rules for man-to-man, modern skirmish warfare
  • Complete campaign system allowing rival factions to war for control of their fictional or historical country
  • Special rules & descriptions for 6 faction types drawn from 20th - 21st century History
  • Point system allowing balanced battles between Elite, Regular, or Militia troop types
  • Three sample scenarios and guidelines for adapting historical actions
  • Political scheming, Permanent Institutions (like radio stations), & more!

With Wars of Insurgency, players control 3-5 squads that can range in size from 3 figures or one vehicle to a dozen men. Each miniature represents one man. The rules can easily be used for 15mm, 20mm, and 28mm scales without modification of ranges. The rules are meant to give the flavor of modern infantry firefights without being overwhelmed by complexity. First Command Wargames rules are meant to provide a fast, easy-to-learn game for the new or veteran player.

Just bought this, I'm always after Modern African wargame rules, spent my childhood in East Africa in the 70's. I was just wondering if it's possible to have Game wardens and Poachers in a scenario. Its another passion of mine, African conservation and i like to try and bring it into my wargames.

WoI reads a lot like a streamlined and updated 3. edition of Peter Pig's AK-47. This is a good thing, although I intend to use 3 mm minis just for the convenience of it.

Hi Chris! I'm glad you like the rules. I would agree there are some parallels in the campaign and faction rules. However, the combat rules are a different animal entirely, IMO. AK-47 has multi-base stands and is very stylized, while with Wars of Insurgency you're doing man-to-man skirmish and picking individual targets and shooting and killing them. Thanks for the purchase, by the way, Chris!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
