Let's try this again since it kinda went sideways.

Dimensional Warfare: Skirmish is a primarily 6mm wargame loosely based on many of the Anime cartoons from the mid 1980's. The game takes care to allow players the flexibility to not only play games that are representative of what they had seen on TV and also in movies, but also open enough that they can adapt units from other genres and be able to mix and match forces and let the imagination run wild. Meant to be played with somewhere between 10 and 20 units per player it can easily be scaled up for larger battles.

The rules are based on an alternating activation system. Players will place their forces into squads and alternate with each other. Players will be able to choose how and when to maneuver their forces in order to try to outmaneuver and outperform each other. Players can try to pull each other out of positions where they can finish them off and obtain a win.

The rules are designed in such a way as to allow players to minimize the need to reference the book and any tables within. You may also wish to look into Tactics, a tactical scale version of this ruleset designed to be played with roughly 2-3x the number of figures at a time.

You can download and look through the rules for free. I also have a facebook page where I upload conversions from other games. The idea is that you can do crossovers with whatever you have and still have fun.

Currently I have
Robotech: Macross Era converted
Battletech 3039 plus the 3050 main Clan Mechs

I'm working on some Voltron Lions as well as
CAV
more Battletech
Robotech Masters and New Generation Stuff
Dropzone Commander
Conventional Units
and then even more.

I also plan on making rules for larger scale battles and space fleet combats down the line.

Now I also need artists to contribute pics for the rulebook, layout people for the rules, 3D minis people since I'm also wanting to make a set of minis specific for the base fluff as well as people willing to play around with the rules and see what they like or dislike.

End goal is to someday do a Kickstarter for the rules and maybe some art and minis.
