Blasted Planets Science Fiction Skirmish Rules

Blasted Planets is Lance Runolfsson's set of free science fiction skirmish rules to support his line of miniatures. Lance writes:

Blasted Planets Skirmish, is basically a set of house rules a few friends and I use to play games with my Sci-Fi figures. I am not trying to model a "Hard" Sci-Fi environment here. I'm borrowing as much from Horror and Fantasy as I am from Sci-Fi. I mean how serious can you be. When you have, Dog headed, Gator men chasing an Elephant guy around an Omni Field generating White rabbit? There is enough "real" world framework here that basic tactics work (most of the time). But enough of a fantastical element that you really can't count on the idea that the Fin headed alien with the pin gun is going to nail the cave man with the rock every time.

Voltigeur Napoleonic Lord of the Rings Conversion

Games Workshop's Lord of the Rings game is a marvelous skirmish system that is readily convertable to many other periods. Hey -- Games Workshop proved it by releasing Legends of the Old West, a set of cowboy skirmish rules.

Voltigeur is a conversion of the system for Napoleonic gaming.

I wish I had some 25mm Napoleonic figures so I could try it.

Three Story Euro Paper Building Model

This three story european paper building model looks like it would work pretty good for 15mm miniature wargames. Players of Flames of War should take a look and see if it fits in with their tabletop layouts.

To A Pulp Simple Rules For Pulp Gaming

Mike Fischer offers a set of miniature rules called To A Pulp (nice pun). He writes

Pulp gaming, in which each player controls a character or faction from a 1930's pulp thriller, is growing in popularity. Such games combine the visual appeal of miniatures gaming with aspects of role-playing games, allowing the players to control the actions of tough private eyes, seemingly-helpless dames, brave explorers, and all the rest. I wrote these rules mostly for my own amusement.

The rules are made for simplicity and fast play. The game is meant for use with miniatures, but you can download a set of paper minis for free (see Section XI). All you have to provide is a few six-sided (d6) and ten-sided (d10) dice. The game is meant for two or more players, but it can be used for solo gaming as well.
