Hi TMPers!

I've been working on a 15mm sci fi blog, and in the course of it decided to write my own rules for solo small scale shootouts.

The rules use hex terrain (heroscape tiles) and are in draft form at the moment, but are developing quickly. The current rules only cover the actual battle mechanics and a sample scenario, more supplemental material will follow.

For any interested, PDFs are available for download at:

I hope you enjoy the rules and greatly appreciate any feedback.

Looks great! Much easier to follow than previous solo rules I've read over. You could have separate Guts charts for different types of factions and aliens (Hive mind etc).

(wait..just noticed you mention that in the blog)

The file in Google Docs seems to be still named 1.2 although 1.3 shows in the document itself.

Looking forward to trying this out!

This is quite timely, since January 11, 2011 is apparently "International Solo Wargaming Day." Or so I've seen on some other blogs. Thanks for the rules!

Thanks for the encouragement! I plan to do a lot more playtesting this week. I'm crossing my fingers my Litko token arrive to liven up the table.

Cloudcaptain: I don't know what went screwy with the google docs thing, but I re-uploaded and it's fixed now.

Hope you all have a great January 11th! ;)

Like the rules. Made a printed copy. Is there any way to save them as a document or an Adobe type PDF on my PC rather than in Google? I just dont need another document system to contend with.

Great looking rules!

Allen57: If you click File then Download Original, you'll be able to save a PDF copy to your harddrive.

Twisted Metal, Thanks for the help. Ive never seen the Google PDF system before.

It took me a few attempts too, it's not very intuitive!
