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!

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!

New ideas for wargames, vote now!

I hope my readers have been enjoying the games I have created so far! I’m pleased to announce that I have a couple of ideas prepared for a few wargames!

So tell me, which of these rule systems would you prefer first?

– A 1/144 scale Jet Fighter air combat game featuring squadrons and missions to carry out.

– Or a 28mm scale Wild West shootout game using standard playing cards as a unique game mechanic?

“Blood & Bounty” 1.1 Out Now!

“Blood & Bounty” release date soon!”

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!

Pirate Wargame Name Decided: “Blood & Bounty”

Just a quick update: The name of our pirate wargame has been decided: “Blood & Bounty” with the possible subtitle “A short life, but a merry one.” Special thanks goes to my commenters as well as my dear ol’ mum who helped create the name! Wahey!
