Brickquest is a set of free miniature wargames rules for dungeon adventures along the lines of Heroquest or DungeonQuest. The catch here is that it uses Lego guys.
Gurth offers a set of free wargames rules for using those Lego figures that your kids (or maybe you!!) have hidden under the bed.
When my kids go off to college, I’m going to have the biggest collection of Legos any middle-aged man has ever had.
Inferno Games offers a set of free wargames rules called “Factions”. It’s designed for 25mm to 28mm skirmish games. Here’s what the authors say:
Factions is a squad based game of warfare between rival gangs. Many stories could be created as to why they are at war with each other. The Core Rule book covers all the rules you will need to begin playing. It includes:
* Short guide on how to play.
* Rules for creating a Space Marine Faction
* Weapons & Equipment
Factions is similer in many way to a plethora of Games Workshop games (because that is what we based it on). It resembles, in my opinion, a mix of Inquisitor, Necromunda and Mordheim. To play you also recquire many dice including d4, d6, d8, d10, d12 and d20. Also having a d% (a dice with 1-10 on in and a dice with 10, 20 30 ect.) is helpful, although it can be made by having two seperate coloured dice.
Fight Dice is a set of free wargames rules that uses a neat dice pool system, where the players allocate handsfull of six sided dice to their actions.
Along with H.G. Wells’ Little Wars, Sham Battle stands as one of the earliest examples of published miniatures gaming rules. You can see a copy online here.
