BattleField Ops Modern Miniatures Tactical Game System

To all it concerns. See below!

As some of you may know, we have been migrating our boxed game into selling individual components for existing hobbyists. Thank you for the support, A number of components are also upgrading. If you have shown your support by purchasing any of these, and they upgrade, you will be offered a special pricing program if you desire any upgrades in the immediate future. Thank you again for keeping the hobby real!

Hey everyone - We wanted to share a quote from a wargaming page here on Facebook. We do not have official permission, so we will simply place it here as a mark of great pride:
"Many kind words goes out to Vito Pandolfo. Although as me a private citizen and needing to stay objective, Vito is actually listening. The itemization of the game components of The Box Battles game parting out is ongoing, shopping cart will see improvements, additional modern cards coming and lastly the CAV Troop card will be forth coming and I hope to be its first reviewer and recipient. The Box Battle Cold War Evolution game is the only game in town that is still written and supported for our specific scale with continuous offerings. There are more add-ons in the works. The perfect game hasn't been made. They all have to balance cost playability, realism, marketability, and production. Not only does 5th Epoch Publishing have to produce the games they have to manage websites, accounts, overhead, customer service. Trust me many have tried and failed. So I can't complain about the few dedicated 1/285th scale offerings out there and then not lend my support. I am putting my name and this group's credibility on the line as well as my modeling and wargaming content when I come out and support a retailer. So we need to push them (5th Epoch Publishing) as hard as we can and also support with our cash and facebook content. If they ain't delivering or you got issues with them contact them directly. Then let us know the outcome so we can all hear first hand. Vito has been kind to me and taken in a lot of feedback from me. So give them time to revamp the game concept. You don't need to buy more more models that you already have. He is listening to us. Standby: the size, line and type of forces will be exponentially growing. I probably won't be able to keep up. Different modern periods and areas of operations will be following. Maybe we can get the first Space Force cards and miniatures developed..... "
It goes on. But we are deeply humbled and grateful.

You know what’s so great about the 5th Epoch game engine? You can use it in any universe and it will still be balanced & brutal. For example, our game The Vampire’s Codex uses the same engine as our fantasy RPG - Metal, Magic & Lore - and it transfers flawlessly. It can go from sword & shield to rifles & pistols while staying immersive & realistic as ever!

Metal, Magic and Lore’s engine for combat works a little bit differently than most: instead of rolling for your chances to succeed with a D20, players roll against their % to fail. This means you have to roll lower numbers to succeed on your combat rolls, and it requires percentile dice.
