My Dear Readers, I am happy to announce that I have reached an agreement with 15mm.co.uk to make a Valiesk setting supplement for their excellent USE ME MODERN (UM004) and possibly also USE ME WWII (UM003) rulesets. So it means that you'll get a fully-fledge, commercial-quality Valiesk sourcebook to play with! Complete with USE ME unit stats!
In this post I'll overview the various factions of the Valieskan Civil War using FAD 4.0 stats. For the time being I won't be designing any specific unit, but rather thinking about the big picture and the advantages and disadvantages of all forces.

Infantry Weapons: Low-Tech Rifles, sometimes Assault Rifles and rarely RPKs and RPGs. Vehicles: Mostly soft-skins; sometimes Technicals (i.e. Gaz-66 with a machinegun bolted on).
Vory v Zakone Miniatures: Rebel Minis Armed Gunmen. Quality: Regular. Resolve: Uncertain (usual criminal behavior) or Determined (w/ combat drugs) . Squad Size: 6 Men. Armour: None.
