Dropship Horizon has the privilege of bringing you advanced Intel on the up-coming release of Tomorrow’s War – Science Fiction Wargaming Rules. Written by Robby and Shawn Carpenter of Ambush Alley Games and published by Osprey Publishing, it would be fair to say that there was quite a buzz about these rules during the testing phase that ended back in March.
At that time, a copy of Force on Force was required to play Tomorrow's War as it was produced as an add-on to Ambush Alley Games' popular modern rule set. What we see here, is the fully evolved and independent form of Tomorrow's War, and it looks pretty darn good.
From what we can gather, the release date of 20 September 2011 is still on track and the following images have been obtained via our High Orbital Spy Satellites.

Somehow, the thought of telling someone wearing battledress, who is armed with some sort of rotary cannon or fusion gun, that smoking might be harmful to his health strikes me as rather futile.
Quality maps and quality illustrations, production values are high.
