Around 2000 Barrie Lovell published, on the Grunt! website, a tip for adding undergrowth to Crossfire / Incoming! bases. Barrie dyes sisal string and uses this as vegetation. Since Grunt! has disappeared I thought I’d republish the article here. Barrie had in mind Vietnam / Incoming! and World War 2 / Crossfire. But this is a good technique for the Portuguese Colonial War / Fogo Cruzado.
“Jungle Hell – The Battle of LZ Tusk and Hill 731” is a scenario in which the US 173rd Airborne meet the NVA 174th Regiment. Barrie Lovell wrote it for Incoming! / Vietnam and published it on the Grunt! website around 2000. As Grunt! has disappeared I have republished it here. All words and images are Barrie’s.
The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most famous battles of the Vietnam War, fought by Australian infantry against overwhelming odds. This is a Incoming! scenario by Matt Spooner and published on the new deceased Grunt! website, probably around 2000. Because Grunt! has disappeared I thought I’d republish the scenario here for the benefit of the Crossfire community. All words are Matt’s.
In 2000 Barrie Lovell, the author of Incoming! Vietnam Rules for the Crossfire System, wrote an article for the Grunt! website called “Collecting Forces for Crossfire – Wargaming with the South Vietnamese Marine Corps.” Grunt! has disappeared from the web so I thought I’d republish Barrie’s article here. All words below are Barrie’s, all figures are from Barrie’s collection, and Barrie painted and photographed the figures as well. I recovered the article and copied the images from the WayBack Machine.
Julian Davies found the map for The Fight for National Route One – An Incoming Scenario by Barrie Lovell. Thanks Julian.
People often ask me where they can get a copy of Incoming! Barrie Lovell’s variant of Crossfire for the Vietnam War. I’ve watched Incoming! float around the internet over several years so I could usually point people to the latest hiding place. When the last host disappeared I thought I’d try to give Incoming! a permanent home. Barrie kindly agreed to let me host it and Steve Phenow provided the PDF.
