Quick and Easy Games has a brand new, free-to-download sci-fi minis game available over on their website.
From the announcement:
When Clayton Callahan discovered a set of cool HO scale science fiction soldiers in a local hobby shop, he had to find the rules that went with them. Trouble was, there weren’t any. That problem is now solved!
Quick And Easy Games is happy to announce the HO scale miniatures game, Space Battles, is now available as a FREE PDF download. That’s right, it’s being given away. But don’t let the price fool you; this fast paced and exciting wargame has been thoroughly playtested at this year’s Gamestorm Convention in Vancouver, Washington. The rules are based on Q&E Games’ very successful historical miniatures game, Battlefields: From Broadswords to Bullets. The game mechanics are easy to learn, and the sides are evenly matched.
Dark Dreams Studio produces two boxed sets of these Ho scale (also called1/72nd scale) plastic star soldiers that served as the inspiration for the rules. To play, you will need to purchase one, or both, of these inexpensive sets. After that, you will need measuring tape, six sided dice, a table, and some model terrain.
