Hello JA fans.
First time posting here, so a bit about myself first: I have been a JA fan for two decades. Started with Deadly Games, went back to JA1, waited with bated breath for JA2. I haven't played any JA after unfinished Business. Favourite mercs: Kelly, Spike, Lee and Gus.
Anyway, I am a tabletop wargamer (like Warhammer) and for years have wanted to do a mission-based (DG style) tabletop wargame based on JA (but with elements from other video games thrown in: Shadow Company Left for Dead, Mercenaries 1 and 2, Hired Guns, and other merc themed games).
I am humbly requesting assistance in the form of:

- Stat tables and bios for mercs in Wildfire, BIA, Crossfire, Flashback and Online.
- Mission briefings from DG.
- A source for more info on Shadow Company Left For Dead (bios, etc).
- Maps of DG missions, JA1 and 2 sectors, basically any maps.

I am aware of the JA wiki, but cannot find a lot of what I am looking for.
Yes, I could play the games to get all this info together, but if anybody else has done the legwork, well, please help me out.

If anybody is interested, I will be happy to post progress on this project here as it comes along.
Thank you in advance for any assistance, and apologies to the mods if this is not the right place for this.

Played with miniatures (usually metal figurines) on a table with landscape to scale.

I know this is an old threat, but if anyone is looking for a rule set for a table top version of a game similar to Jagged Alliance, I already made rules. They were originally designed for play with Action Figures, but miniatures could be used in a pinch. I took down my website, but free versions of the rules are still available here:

That looks good. A Jagged Alliance boardgame.

Now if there only was a place where one would meet other JA-fanatics that also like to play board games ... happy

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.

So, the game was just shown on Youtube (in german) (world premiere!) in a, say, early alpha build (with Legos as placeholders, as they still seek funding and stuff big grin ). This looked fun, and adequately hard happy

Personally I'm looking forward to seeing more.
