Anyway to cut a long story short, whilst visiting a wargames show rulles the UK I spotted a set of rules written by Jon Tuffley and Rukes Elliot. My armies were organised and equipped and the battles began.


My GW marines stayed in that role but were re organised into formal brigades. I knew that abstract solutions were no longer possible. That old interest in sc-fi lingered on however. They can move first and then fire or fire then move.

All defending units have two alternate fighting positions marked on the map prior to deployment. Bigger vehicles can have heavier armor and bigger guns, but they’re more expensive and easier to hit.

Basically the route that Golgotha would take. The “fast play” combat system is chartless. This vehicle holds the remote piloting and targetting links, dirtsidr systems, etc. I have been a life long wargamermainly historical with minor flights into fantasy many years ago.

First I needed a set of rules that would give a satisfying result without feeling like a souped up ultra modern set. It can see the enemy. Then came tiny tanks and troopers to fight alongside the titans and suddenly I was playing 6mm armoured games again albeit in a fantasy world.
