I've posted some pictures from my gaming group's latest endeavor, a combination tabletop/RPG scifi game set in the GDW's 2300AD universe.


Although most of the models are from Warhammer 40K, we used Howard Whitehouse's Combat: Alien War for the basics – a quick, fun and cinematic set of rules.

I've posted this on the Pulp board since the Combat rules are based on his Astounding Tales rules.

Looking good! I'm liking the reports!

How did you handle the vehicles in the rules? The version of Alien War rules that I've been reading doesn't have vehicles?

I have a chart that includes vehicles and heavy artillery. I think I got it from Howard W. at a convention where he ran some demo games of the rules. They use the same mechanics as the basic infantry rules, each vehicle has an armor rating and each heavy weapon has an impact rating. Results tables had Damaged/Badly Damaged instead of Wounded/Out of Action. The Damaged/Badly Damaged table has some basic things that go wrong to the vehicle, lose main weapon, lose mobility, etc.

Thanks for the info!

Do you, or anyone else (Howard), know if there will be "official" vehicle rules released for Alien War?

I've liked what I've read in the rules so far, but haven't played a game yet. One more thing on the "to do" list.

I've posted the next installment


Sharkbait, I don't know if the vehicle rules will become official. I'll try to contact Howard about it.
