While awaiting my pre-ordered copy of John Lambshead’s Sci-fi Skirmish Scenarios: Small-unit Missions For Use With Your Favourite Wargaming Rules from Amazon (I’m in the USA), I went ahead and bought a digital ePub copy from the publisher Pen and Sword in the UK.
I just skimmed through and had some early thoughts on using it not just for sci-fi games but for other genres such as historical World War II.
Coming out in October 2022 is John Lambshead’s “Sci Fi Skirmish Scenarios.” It will include 36 scenarios and three linked campaigns plus tools to build your own wargame scenarios.
This is a self-reflection on my home-brew wargaming roadmap. I’ve got a combination RPG and skirmish wargame system in the works which uses a base set of core rules for each products. It will support Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Supers, but I also want it to support historical games. But what types of historical games should I work on first?
Saw this idea from Ron Loge on MeWe.com — use bottle caps glued together to make Sci Fi barrels! Great idea!
I’ve been on the hunt for a ‘B’ game to have handy when my normal RPG game session doesn’t have enough players for quorum, or if the GM is having a bad day and isn’t feeling like running a game. Some of us aren’t that hip on board games (me included), and wargames seem like a nice option.
