Mobile Suit Gundam: Skirmish ver 1.3

Hey everyone. Big update for Gundam Skirmish today. Sorry about the lack of updates, I’ve been a bit busy recently. I aim to write some more unit sheets for you all eventually, which will make a nice break from the normal routine!

Anywho, here is the newest version of the “Mobile Suit Gundam: Skirmish” Core Rules:

Mobile Suit Gundam Skirmish 1.3

Corrections:

The following should be added to the campaign section.

Exhaustion Check: Perform the following check for each pilot in an MS Team:

Roll 2D6 against the value [5 (+/- “Pilot Mind”)]

If the die result is lower than that value, the pilot passes the exhaustion check. If the die result is that value or higher, than the pilot loses the exhaustion check.

If a unit passes their exhaustion check, they proceed as normal.
If a unit loses their exhaustion check, they are removed from the game.
An MS Team with no remaining pilots as a result of this check is removed from the game.”

There is also now an editable character sheet that should prove useful:

Editable Character Sheet

There’s tonnes of neat little updates in this version, following your suggestions. These include (but are not limited to):

  • Changes to the “Shield Break” system.
  • Weather and environmental effects
  • Random terrain generation
  • Extra levels, mods and traits
  • I-Field/Beam Shield Overhaul (Changes to these abilities in the statistics to come shortly, but you’ll manage.)
  • Air Unit changes.

And more!

I hope you enjoy the new additions and changes to the game!

“Even Death May Die” Units

I’ve been painting some units for my “Even Death May Die” game recently. Here’s a look at how a bunch of my survivors turned out!

I hope they turned out well. I should really revisit that game of mine one day. It’d be neat to have photos added to it at the very least!

Jet Combat Wargame Proposal

Hello all! In an attempt to get my creative juices flowing, I’m proposing an idea for a new wargame.

My idea is 1/144 scale jet combat. Probably focusing on hollywood style dogfighting (so not necessarily the most realistic. Think of the “Ace Combat” series of video games or the movie “Top-Gun” as inspiration here) with fast-paced combat and gameplay mechanics akin to something the like “Star Wars: X-Wing” wargame.

As an expression of interest, could you please fill in the poll or comment section and indicate how interested you would be in such a product.

Thank you in advance!

Update for adding your own units to the game!

Hey guys!

Just giving you an update today to let you know that I’ve decided (for the time being) to invest more time and energy into working on the other projects I’m working on at the moment.

However, I still love and want to support this game as best as I can. Which is why I have a cool proposal. We’re going to try making new universal army lists for the game as a community! Joy!

So here’s the plan! Later today (possibly tomorrow if I’m late!) I will release a “Unit Kit” that will show you the guidelines for how to create new units to add to the game! This will include stats for the various weapons, armour classes, points calculation, a template to fill in, etc. It will be based off of the i formation I gave beta testers, but now it will be public knowledge!

The community can them e-mail me submissions for new units and I can add them into a test army list! We can then discuss what units need to change, be removed, etc! I think it should be pretty fun!

Sorry in advance for this information, I just really want to try working on my other project for a time. To make ya’ll feel better, here’s a picture of my cat:

Let’s build new armies together! Huzzah!
