High Crusade Rules

Wessex Games has released a freeware version of their simple 15mm science fiction miniature wargames rules, High Crusade. Wessex writes:

Wessex Games originally released High Crusade back in 1994 in response to a young gamer querying what set of rules he should use to play with some 15mm SF figures he had bought at Weymouth’s Fisticuffs show. At that time there wasn’t really a cheap introductory level set of rules on the market, so we sat down and came up with High Crusade retailing at just �1.95!

It proved very popular with novice and experienced gamers alike and soon went into a second edition that included additional rules and appendices covering new backgrounds and expanding the original one.

When the second edition sold out Wessex Games took the decision not to reprint the game, instead deciding to concentrate on newer products supporting its own background worlds.

However rather than let the game die (and because Alex Stewart keeps on mentioning it!) we have decided to re-release the second edition as a freeware web-based edition with a few minor changes which we hope will improve game play and balance.

Trash Tokyo Rules

The Trash Tokyo rules from WilsonClan is designed to be a miniatures wargame for people not into miniatures wargames. I have a collection of Godzilla toys, and think I may try these out.

Fallout Miniatures Rules

Fallout is a legendary computer role playing game. Set in a post nuclear world, it has a 1950s science fiction aura. Here’s a miniatures game set in that world.

Starship Troopers For Dirtside

Here are some rules for using the Dirtside II system to recreate battles from Heinlein’s Starship Troopers.

Fistfull of Tripods Rules

Ty Beard’s Fistfull of Tripods is a set of free wargames rules for fighting battles from H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds. It is a tactical level game, where one stand is a platoon. I’ts designed for 1/300 (6mm) scale figures.
