Now recently I picked a set of books that were written by Larry Correia…

Almost done with the first book and it is actually petty good.

As I am reading it I can see that it has some gaming potential and it looks like…

Savage Worlds had a Kickstarter base on the books.

This could do quite well as a Frostgrave/Savage World type of game.

Monster miniatures can be had and there are enough of different types of miniatures that could be used as Hunters.

Now he has six Monster Hunter books out and two more on the way. Plus he has paired up with several other authors on other books.

So these are great reads and I recommend them.

Then there is the gaming aspect of these books since you could fight monsters in almost any setting:

Medieval
Pike & Shot era
Napoleonic
Western/late 1800's
Early 1900's
World War II/mid 1900's
Current

His Grimnoir Chronicles are quite good as well and while a little more superheroish with the paranormal abilities they exhibit, could be gamed as well.

Must say though, I am awaiting the next book in his 'Forgotten Warrior' saga with more anticipation than for any of the rest. Started off the new series/trilogy(?) with a bang. And then back to his other creations leaving things up in the air. Apropos your post, i hit the his site and low and behold it has been sent to the publisher.

And a new (to me) MHI novel to fill the time waiting for the it to come out in paperback.

Yeah, Monster Hunter International is a fun ride. I was hooked on that book after the second sentence.

Good premise, and great fun to mess with people's heads. (Elves are deep-south Trailer Park Trash, but Orcs are helicopter pilots?!?)

and Healers

Love MHI!

The MHI books are chock full of wonderful gaming ideas and scenarios.

And don't forget that gnomes are ganstas. We won't even go into what Frankenstein's monster is actually.

I need to see if I have a Russian military helicopter in 1/48. And convert a few GW goblins into a pilot and a priestess/healer, with modern weapons, of course.

But what rules should be used? I like the THW approach and have used a personally adjusted version of Chain Reaction to run Weird World War Two scenarios, but wonder if that would also work for modern.

Any suggestions?

Savage Worlds Showdown is probably best, though you could also use Infinity. Infinity has some freaky aliens you could use as monsters, and probably the best hidden-unit rules around.

I think both rulesets are free to download.

And I know you can buy a 1/48 scale Hind helo. Paint it up Red and White so people mistake it for an air ambulance, maybe leave the stub wings off.
