Free Elements LITE is a starter version of a more complex RPG where, according to the author:

This system utilizes the Elements TTRPG system, which is a freeform action system. You perform actions by describing what you want to do, and picking a skill to use. Based on that skill’s rank, check your multiplier table to see how many points it has. All checks require skill rolls from both parties to determine the success rate, regardless of what the target may be, you’ll engage in a battle of skill checks with it. If you don’t have the proper skill, you must perform an untrained skill check with it. Rate of success when performing an action determines the outcome of a battle, if successful enough the DM will allow you to describe the outcome, where if you’re within 9pts of each other’s checks the DM will describe what happens instead.

Vaporoare RPG

Vaporoare is a role playing game, but as is the case with such, it’s full of ideas for skirmish type miniatures games. The author writes:

Vaporoare is a role-playing game of weird science and mad magi in Victorian-era Europe. It imagines a world where Jules Verne wrote technical manuals for ether machines instead of fiction; Mary Shelley penned the autobiography of Dr. Frankenstein, and H. P. Lovecraft didn’t know what he was getting into. It is the world described by Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Dunsany and J. R. R. Tolkien. Europe is alive with races of fiction: elves dwarves and gnomes. These people have lived together since the beginning of time, and now they face their greatest challenge: the Industrial Revolution. Magick is dying, and technology is on the rampage.
