Dune game using S&S one hour skirmish rules
« on: September 21, 2022, 09:50:37 AM »


Tried the  S&S rules out  and used my Dune collection simple scenario attack a Sardaukar base with the defenders split in the open and buildings, I quickly used the points and made some fast profiles and surprised to find they looked  perfect for the game, the Fremen had first card and advanced from two sides, they were engaged quickly by the defenders and  a series of interesting melee fights started, the combat is different in S&S and gave for me a great flow and a more tactical game , the  Sardaukar emerged and  engaged the Fremen I found the swords with a range of 1" became  deadly as the zone offered another card in attack, but the daggers of the Fremen and there faster move  evened the scale, the fights became more brutal and the Fremen started to loose more men, even the  appearance of there leader could not  help the attack and a morale card  proved the Fremen were defeated and had to back off. a victory to the  Sardaukar.
For me  it worked very well in the context of the game, the weapons  and armor save add a lot to the over all system and the hit table is great to resolve a fight I think in the game I had 6 instant kills. Loads of fun and an interesting world to try again, looking forward to the book when its published. I urge players to give it a go.

Very good setup and great collection of painted models!
I can’t remember hearing about the rules you used. Are they currently under development or can I download them somewhere?

Ah, okay. I’m not with Facebook, so that’s unreachable. But thanks, I am always interested in new skirmish rules.
