Dropped from Orbit free USEME rules and scenario for Drop Pods

“Like a bullet from a massive gun the drop pod is fired from orbit down, in a streak of fire and heat, to the battlefield below.  Within its titanium frame five soldiers strain against  intense gravity to remain conscious knowing when the pod bursts open they will be thrust straight into the maelstrom…”

To round off the month which saw the release of Alternative Armies new Drop Pods and Drop Coffin it is my pleasure to present to you a free article to download which gives you additional rules for USEME and a short scenario too.  Go HERE for the range.

Bringing them onto the table, the chance of missing the landing, optional rules and death drops. Then a one page scenario called 'Steel Grapes of Wrath' which sees Security Force Alpha dropping in on Joad Tommo and the Tenants Revenge cult.
