Regarding Initiative values, you can always create some for yourself (unless Burma44 threatens to send the thought police over of course  ;D).

Mr Author, from your experience how long do these games play out on average? I realise this could depend on how many units in action.

*whispers into earpiece, summoning the secret Thought Police*

Haha. But in all seriousness, I think it all works really well as is, but peeps are always free to tweak as their needs require. As long as it's just a game with a friend, you could be playing with lego soldiers and rubberbands for all I care. lol

To answer your great question, Ragsta, the standard game time is 2-3 hours. The standard game limit is about 8-9 soldiers per side, on average, with 3-4 models for the most elite focused warband and 16 soldiers maximum for the swarmiest warbands. If you bring the limit down, as all are free to do, the game could be as quick as an hour or less. When playing in a campaign, there will be a "Post-Battle Regroup" with very light inventory and upgrade work, but even that wouldn't take more than 15mins max (and that's just as fun as playing a match, me thinks!).

Hope you give it a go, Ragsta! Thanks for checking it out!

Currently working on new scenarios for campaign play! Will work great for one-off games as well. Creating scenarios for 2,3,4,5, and 6 players. All of them include a secondary objective that involves securing "Illicit Caches", which is basically space-treasure that can be opened after a battle and the loot inside goes into your warband's inventory for later use.

What scenarios have you always enjoyed from other skirmish games? What scenarios have you always dreamed of playing, but have never seen before? Would love the hivemind's input!

Sweet looking forward to seeing these scenarios.
Probably my favourite scenario in any game is hidden treasure from mordheim itís where there is a treasure marker in a random building and you have to roll to search to find it.

You have to search every building and roll a 12 on 2 d6 to find it and the last building searched auto has it if it canít be found, itís just carnage to play.

Wyrdstone hunt is good too just fighting over treasure that can be carried by warriors when found.

Other than that mainly scenarios that have civilians in are cool.

Used to love me some Mordheim! Those are all classic ideas for sure, and inspiration from each is definitely in the upcoming scenarios pack. I'm up to 12 scenarios for 2 player matches, 6 for 3 players, 6 for 4 players (3 team, 3 free for all), and a secret objectives system for 5 and 6 player matches (which also includes a teams mode) that creates an endless variety of crazy shenanigans. And then caches as secondary objectives in every single scenario... Campaigns in Starfall are gonna be epic.

Continuing to craft the scenarios! Looking great!

Just went all in for Zombicide Invader for the boatload of sweet sci-fi models.

Just finished this little video on Psychic Abilities and Schools in Starfall. Enjoy: https://youtu.be/j7uOPnkicA4

Oh for sure! I was skeptical at first but when the exclusive character/alien models just started pouring out, I knew I had to bite the bullet start dropping $$$. Haha. It looks like they should scale really well with 40k. Absolutely stoked to use them all for Starfall! If you went all in, you should have enough models for at least 3/4s of all 20 Starfall factions. It's like it was made for it! Haha.

How'd you like the psychics video? Any particular Starfall warbands you're looking at getting into? (I know you've got the models for nearly everything!)

Yeah the video was great. Theríre all easy to follow for the uninitiated... like me. Are you going to do a full example battle report after all the intro videos are done?

The warband Iím looking forward to getting done first is a hive warband made out of legion of everblight warbeasts, itís been far to long since Iíve seen shredders running around mauling people on the table top  :D

But that being said thereís a tonne of other ones rolling around in my head nomadic raiders just look to fun to pass up aswell.

Awesome! Well, whatever warbands you come up with, do be sure to share here and everywhere! Love your work and I'd be thrilled to see it in use for Starfall.

I would love to do a full battle report someday, but at the moment I live in Southeast Asia, in a country where TT is virtually nonexistent. Hoping to change that as the months pass! 😉

STARFALL ORGANIZED PLAY LAUNCHES THIS FRIDAY! I created a brief vlog post to chat a bit about why I'm excited for Starfall's organized play supplements. You can check it out here: https: https://youtu.be/rcp1PUkB6Jc

Probably most jazzed to release the scenarios pack and rules for running Starfall campaigns! What are you excited for!?

I'm most looking forward to the campaign rules. We've just started up a Necromunda campaign, so anything new will have to take a back seat for a while, but what you've shown so far looks great and I hope I won't have to wait too long to try it out myself.

Just joined this community to let you know I think you have something special with your STARFALL project.

Hey Kontuz! Thanks so much for the love and support! Your kind words of encouragement are making my day! I too believe that Starfall is really something special. Played another couple games of it today (pic below) and I was quickly reminded just how fun and exciting it can be. Not too fluffy, but not too overbearing. Just right. Hope you get to play it soon! The campaign supplements drop in less than 24hrs!
