Got early notes for a set of ww2 rules aimed at playing quickly with a lot of toys on the table.


Original system, not based on FiveCore or "In Sight".

Aimed at 6mm or 10mm but 15mm could work too.

1 stand is 1 squad or vehicle.

The aim is fast play with a lot of toys on the table. Inspired by the old "Space Marine" rules from GW but not a clone of that.

Aimed a bit more at the "game" part than the hard core simulation but I think it'll do well enough.

This is something I've been sitting on for a while but now seems as good a time as any.

Reading feedback is great but if you can put some mini's on the table, that's really what I am looking for.

It's aimed at WW2, but if you want to test it with cold war stuff, I don't imagine you'd break anything at all.

Post your email here, PM me or email me at

We'll give it a go. Quick and simple with lots of toys is right down our street.We do play 20mm and 28mm, but we have a large table and like it be very dense with scenery. Drop us a line….

The ranges might be a bit pitiful with larger figures but you can adjust that as you find appropriate.

I'm just now looking for a simple set to use with my son and his friend, who have started collecting WWII miniatures. As a long-time fan of FAD I'm curious to take a look (I know they are not like FAD).

Ivan, you Bleeped texter! How could you do this to me!?

You know I'm looking for something like this (for my Cold War stuff), but you also know I'm about to start a grand campaign with your other rules!!!

I suppose I'll have catch up later, but I demand you slow down your rate of rules production!

They sound great; I'd love to get in on them, but I don't think I can get anything else on the table right now…

I'd love to try them out too Ivan but I'm swamped at the moment. If they're half as good as your "5core" then they'll be seriously worth trying…
I might request them from you during the Christmas holidays if I find some "me" time to play with my toys…

hah, this is super early drafts anyways so no worries ;)

This is a more traditional design than 5core but it might turn out to be pretty good.
I am looking for testing to make sure the base ideas are sound, before putting too much work in.

There's even some stats in there if you squint ;)
