New ruleset in the works, feedback requested: Working title is "Another Glorious Day in the Corps."

New to the group but a big fan of 15mm SciFi. I've been working on a set of rules for the past year or so, and wanted to let you know a free playtest draft is available at FlagshipGames.com/shop
Working title is "Another Glorious Day in the Corps." There is also a module for bug hunts I just finished drafting.

Units are squads and players can command a platoon. With experience a player can command up to a company.

Most of the mechanics are pretty straight forward. What sets the game apart is the use of a 2 phase turn sequence and a simple orders system. A turn has two phases. When activated a unit may move and shoot during the phase. BUT whether it goes in Phase 1 or Phase 2 is random. A simple way to recreate some fog of war.

Draft contains basic infantry rules and light vehicle rules. Now that the core engine is pretty much ready, I'm on to adding in things like detailed drop ship rules, electronic warfare, calling in support fire, etc.

Take a look and let me know what you think!

Releasing tomorrow, from Darkest Star Games - new Ma.K inspired vehicles!


Releasing tomorrow from Darkest Star Games:


From the post:

Thanks guys! Christopher Lynch did the hard work at my crazy request! The apc was originally designed at 1/20 scale by a fella on the Ma.K forum and shrunk down by permission. The 2 turret options for the tank version are from Chris and myself. I'm going to use them for Patrol Angis (as soon as I make ky order! )





Really awesome and I'm sure they'll be very popular!

Brigade Models.co.uk releases 15mm Desert Domes!

Brigade Models.co.uk, already producing some of my favorite resin sci-fi buildings, have released their very cool 6mm desert buildings in 15mm.  I'm very happy to see this since I was very jealous of the 6mm gamers when I saw there released orginially!

From: Brigade Models.co.uk

The recent Desert Dome buildings in 6mm have been very popular and we’ve had more than the odd request to produce them in 15mm. So that’s exactly what we’ve done, with the three smallest buildings now available in the larger scale. The buildings combine well with the existing Desert Buildings range to give you lots of options for your gaming board.



B15-403 – Small Cylindrical Building – £12.00
B15-404 – Small Multi-dome Dwelling – £9.00
B15-405 – Small Oval Dwelling – £9.00

Ground Zero Games Releases More Low-Tech Forces

Jon over at GZG sent me a big update and some pics for his newest releases. As usual the quality is top notch and the options pile up like cord wood. Here are Jon's own words to explain the release...

Hi all,

I've just posted the latest EIGHT packs of SG15 figures to the webstore, they are all AVAILABLE NOW, moulds are made and they are awaiting your orders!

This time we have TWO new packs for the PAU - the horse-mounted scouts in soft jungle caps rather than helmets, and a mixed pack of SAWs and other squad special weapons, also carried by troops in the jungle caps.

There are FOUR new packs for the CDF (Colonual Defence Force), one of the most popular of our SG armies - as with the PAU, these are all packs of troops with soft headgear rather than helmets - in this case the standard CDF field caps.

Then we have TWO more packs of the new MERCS range - like the four earlier releases, these are great as professional mercenaries/PMCs, irregular forces (geurillas and resistance fighters) or as typically "scruffy" but efficient Special Forces units!

All packs are at the usual SG15 price of 3.00 per pack (inc VAT) in UK and the rest of the EU, or 2.50 GBP excluding VAT for those of you outside the EU.


PAN-AFRICAN (PAU):


SG15-P18       Pan-African Union (PAU) Mounted Scouts in Jungle caps on terran-stock horses - pack contains 2 horses (different poses) and 2 riders (different poses).


SG15-P19       Pan-African Union SAWs and support weapons, troops in Jungle caps - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 poses - two SAW gunners (kneeling and advancing), one with sniper rifle, one with rocket launcher.

COLONIAL DEFENCE FORCE:


SG15-C21    CDF (Colonial Defence Force) troops in field caps, with short assault carbine/autoshotgun -  8 figures, 2 each of 4 different poses.


SG15-C23    CDF (Colonial Defence Force) Command and Comms in field caps -  8 figures, 2 each of 4 different poses.


SG15-C24    CDF Autocannon teams, crew in field caps -2 weapon teams, each of cannon, tripod, gunner and observer/loader


SG15-C25    CDF Mortar Teams, crew in field caps - 2 weapon teams, each of mortar, baseplate and two kneeling crew.

MERCS/IRREGULARS:


SG15-M05    Mercs squad support pack with RPGs/LAWs - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: mix of male and female figures in various soft headgear, two with RPGs and two with Light Antitank Weapons.


SG15-M06    Mercs snipers/marksmen pack - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: mix of male and female figures in various soft headgear, all carrying sniper rifles.



Don't forget that our GZG 30th BIRTHDAY SPECIAL is still running until the 31st JULY, so please pop over to the webstore and check out the details, plus all the new figure codes!
