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.
These rules are completely free (although a donation is welcome if you feel like it!)
Please download and print these documents in order to play the game.
Corrections and errors:
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.”
Ahoy, lubbers! Just letting you know that “Blood & Bounty” is nearly finished! The game mechanics are essentially complete and I’m primarily working on the campaign mode and special rules and statistics for historical pirates.
My estimate may be a little off, but I’m assuming that the game should be ready on this website at approximately 3:00pm AEST this Wednesday. Woo!
Been hard at work on the rules today for about 5 hours! I must say, this is very quickly becoming a fairly ambitious project. Over 7000 words already, gulp!
Roll call for pirates and more! I am currently planning the following characters and crew ( for those up on their pirate history! ): Anne Bonny, Ben Hornigold, Captain Maynard, Black Bart, Blackbeard, Calico Jack, Charles Vane, Emanuel Wyyne, Edward Ballamy, Edward Low, Stede Bonnet, and Mary Read.
Added: Embarking/disembarking, dozens of explanatory diagrams, boarding ships, ramming, broadsides, swimming, draught rules, more weapon variety and ammo types, misc.
