Space Weirdos

Space Weirdos is a Skirmish Heartbreaker. About ten years ago, everyone was publishing their own old-school D&D hacks. Now a bunch of OSR nerds are turning to wargaming and discovering that the minis games are just as bad as RPGs for edition-creep and other unforgivable crimes. So I'm publishing a short and sweet set of miniatures rules.

You're wondering what makes Space Weirdos different from other games. Not much! It takes what I like from other games and mashes it all together.

  • Low model count: 5 to 10 models or so for each side.
  • Use any minis you have.
  • Short but comprehensive. Everything in one 16 page zine.
  • Minimal tokens, but still a few because I like them.
  • No tape measures or rulers, all movement and ranges are measured with 5" sticks.
  • Uses all your RPG dice (except the d20, d20's get enough love) because dice are fun.
  • A points system, but you shouldn't worry about it too much.
  • Alternating activations, opposed rolls, command points and random tables, mean everyone is involved and rolling dice all the time.

Also Includes:

  • A separate 4-page solo-rules document.
  • A PDF with tokens, hobby advice, and a warband sheet.

If you like minis games or 40K but giant rulebooks turn you off or seem intimidating, maybe give this a shot.
