Breaking News is a set of free wargames rules for modern skirmishes. From the introduction:
BN recreates the tension of today’s battlefields, scenes of difficult operations that are often called “peace keeping” missions, with the additional presence of civilians and the media.
In BN the main elements are the men and their choices on the field – these rules are not a “brochure” containing all the features of modern weapons.
BN is designed for “one-off” simulations. Build up your unit with group of miniatures and spend other points on EXTRAS (support fire, intelligence, rules of engagement…)
