Took son to Fall In and he bought some 25mm metal Star Wars figures and wants to game with them "if" I paint them, which I will since it keeps him off of the computer/XBox etc.. So what rules are out there that he can use? Through looking around TMP I have seen Blasters & Bulkheads, FAD, FUBAR, Galactic Heroes. Anything else? Help is appreciated.

Depends on how many he has. I would think that 40K would actually be a pretty good rule set for Star Wars. If he doesn't have that many then Necromunda would probably work well too.

I believe he got a deal of 25 figures. I'm new to Sci Fi. Thank you.

Larry – are these the Grenadier figures for the WEG game? I have some more I was going to ebay if you are interested. Probably about 20+ or so.

Blasters & Bulkheads is good and my rules of choice.

Fubar for Star Wars is a good start. I have a Hoth specific set that I am working on expanding to Droids and small unit actions on board capital ships. I combined a lot of information and ideas from Star Wars Miniature Battles by West End Games, SWMB the collectable game, FUBAR, and several other SI-Fi rules out there. All and all when someone asks where to start I usually point them to FUBAR Star Wars.

If you can find them West End Games did the Star Wars Miniatures game and it is a lot of fun.

OK Thanks guys I'll keep hunting. @Ghostrunner, they are 25mm metal, have the date of 1987 and Lucas on the bottom. They were loose figures he picked out of a box. Thats about all I know of them.

I'll second the West End Games game. It was a good game, fairly easy with a good amount of detail to it. It captured skirmish gaming very well and handled heroes as well as common grunts very well.

the actual STARWARS MINIS game was pretty fun. D20 based, played like D&D minis but with guns, and stupidly easy for forces upto and including a few dozen figures per side. link

I have a bunch of the maps, figures, rules books, and stat cards. MULTIPLE sets of the rules from the "starter boxes".

Would be willing to sell/trade off anything but my clone/stormtrooper horde…
