The rules are easy and quick to learn while still containing vast amounts of diversity to provide for continually interesting play, game after game. A full campaign system is available which makes each game count, and allows the miniatures to change and progress. The players have the power to write their own story in the Vortex universe.

Universal Soldier Extreme / Modern Day Heroes Rules

RAFM offers a set of free wargames rules for skirmishes: Universal Soldier Extreme / Modern Day Heroes

Universal Soldier Extreme is a set of rules for skirmish level miniature gaming using Rafm Miniatures. The focus of the main rules is on the modern era and optional rules are provided to suit any genre ranging from horror, to pulp fiction, to historical combat. The rules focus on the Modern Day Hero’s line as well as the Cthulthu mythos creatures. The inspiration for these figures comes from the traditional H.P. Lovecraft Horror genre as well as modern movies and cinema. These rules are a skirmish level set of rules. This means that each player would command between five and ten miniatures at a time. Although flexible enough to handle many more miniatures it is up to the players to decide how big a game they desire to play. We have found that a game of this level with two players can be finished in one and half to two hours playing time.
