KR16 - sci-fi skirmish rules


FUBAR got me hooked on 6mm sci-fi, in fact it was down to FUBAR being such a good game that I started making my own 6mm sci-fi models.
So FUBAR has had a massive influence on Angel Barracks.

Whilst I really like the game it does have a few things about it that I don't like, I addressed some of those with the House Rules I had available on my website.

But, as Angel Barracks heads deeper into 6mm sci-fi and as the fluff for Kometenmelodie grows I thought it about time I did my own set of rules.

So here is the first edition of them:














They are, as you can tell, inspired by FUBAR and they also draw from my earlier set of Black Powder rules for some of the mechanics as well as a few ideas of my own that hopefully make for a good fast game.

They are intended to be used with 6mm figures with no more than about 30 figures per side with a few vehicles in support.
They are not meant to be super detailed, nor do they make any claim to be accurate, if that is even possible with fictional things?

They are simply a set of rules I wrote for my own games with my own figures and I thought I would share them for free.

When writing them I have made the assumption you will be familiar with wargames and as such some things have been glossed over.

During the writing and play testing stage a few things were changed, a few people on the Yahoo Group made suggestions that whilst valid, were not what I wanted in my games.
As such I did not put those changes in, however these rules are for your games now, so if you think something needs to be changed, then change it!

I play the rules as they are, as they are what I like; you should play them the way you like even if that means changing them.

OKI corners - sneak peek



The OKI Corporation has been busy, busy caring for you!

I have been making my moulds for the OKI corners and wanted to show you how they look and also the extra possibilities you may not have thought about.

First of all the initial corner as was originally intended:





Then of course, if you wish you could flip it around the other way:





Or you could make a small walled compound:





But then of course, you could put 4 together and make a small defensive structure:



 
Or you could make a bigger structure by using 4 corners, a wall and a gate section, just cut out a thin bit of plasticard for the roof and hey presto:




or or or…..

I have to go now, I am getting excited!

Update

The Junker Civilians should be with me next week, so pre-orders will all being well, will be posted next week.

I have sent the Pathfinder Paladin and the OKI Wind Turbines off to the casters so hopefully they will be done in a few weeks time.

I have also ordered some 3D prints of the OKI landing pad (now corrected) and the OKI wall tower.
So when they arrive they will be used to make the moulds.
All being well the OKI stuff should be ready next week.



Getting there at last!
