I recently ordered some POD rules through Amazon, since that wasn’t an option in the DriveThru RPG version, and I’m old school enough that it’s a lot easier for me to learn a set of rules I actually intend to play from a paper copy.
Anyway, Amazon’s algorithms decided that I probably also wanted Fantastic Battles by Nic Wright (doing business as “Irregular Wars” but apparently published in collaboration with Ganesha Games, makers of A Song of Blades and Heroes etc.).
It is apparently both scale and miniatures agnostic, with the base unit mounted on squares (although there are options for rectangular bases). Since all of my mass battle fantasy figures are on 60mm squares, this seemed like it would be easy enough to test out.
I’m drawing up a couple of small orders of battle; at “500 points”, my first army looks to have 10 bases of troops and 4 characters. The recommended game size on a 4x6 table with 60mm bases would be up to 1000 points, or perhaps twice that. I’ll report back when I get a battle fought…
"Starting with the latest expansion to the GURPS Action series (see Warehouse 23), your pledge of $3 secures you a PDF copy of GURPS Action 8 - Twists. This 10-page PDF, written by Sean Punch, aims to shake things up. "
10 PDFs for as little as $3 seems like a deal.
The Construction Program went to a major update to clean up some code as well as adding data cards for every model currently available in game and a few more to boot (I even put the Scorpion in there for you :).
The Force Manager is also now available windows based machines. The FM zip contains the latest CP as well.
If you have any questions on its operation (either program), find a bug, find a model we missed, etc. please submit an email to: bugstomper(at)talon-games(dot)com
The following file compiles all of the data cards from the CAV CP and puts them in one master PDF file.
I have also updated the model list.
