Well, hope they do alright. 

However, as a fan of the book, anything where the MI are sans power armor is not my cup of tea.
On time, on target, or the next one's free

As the game has non-, plus two levels of power armour, you may restrict as you will.

I'm excited for the only movie-esque 6mm bugs of which I am aware. If it makes it to the point where my store can find a distributor, I am in!

Link here
for those interested, 53 pictures, loads of stuff.

Rules wise they claim it includes options for "all" the versions of the mobile infantry, both the movie footsloggers as well as power armor and mecha so that should keep everyone interested.


I have to say keeping it solo and co-op is an interesting choice. From a gameplay perspective, I like it, we could do with a solo game like that in this genre. (I really enjoy nordic weasels weaseltech solo campaign system) from a thematic and narrative perspective, I'm not so sure. Wasnt the fact that the bugs are actually intelligent and thinking part of the point of the story? Making it a AI driven "swarm" goes against that for me.

Seems like I'm getting rusty on the PHP forum code, what a sad day.

Shame on you!  ;D

I like the look of these, but the bugs, dropships and some other elements are very closely resembling the movie models. Here's to hoping he does not get shut down...

I'm not huge on the rules only being on patreon, its a extra hurdle and all that though I understand that driving traffic to your patreon is a smart business move which I can "forgive" a one man indie operation.

I figured the following question and answer on facebook were relevant, might make some of you feel more inclined to the get the rules?



EDIT-editted: Phill beat me to the punch, you need the 12 euro patreon level to get the rules. That does also give you all the files on the patreon as well. (note those movie style infantry and bugs were from Wakes emporium, not the crow industry)
