I mean, I realize they're a vital part of the ecological system and all, but I'd prefer if they didn't come invading into my apartment. However, as bad as seeing something scurry across your kitchen floor in the pale moonlight may be, it is nothing compared to the bugs one comes across in the depths of space. For those, you'd best get out your plasma rifle. I don't think a tennis shoe will suffice.
That's the type of thing you'll be fighting in 5150: Bugs: Into the Tunnels, a new minis game that's a team-up between Two Hour Wargames and Acheson Creations. The game's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Two Hour Wargames has partnered with Acheson Creations to bring you 5150: Bugs – Into the Tunnels, the first of our three 5150 Kickstarters. Into the Tunnels is a complete game playable with our 15mm scale pewter minis and resin tunnel sections.
Our tabletop games are playable in two hours or less. All of our games can be played solo or same side (cooperatively) as well as head-to-head against your friends.
Inside you’ll find:
Complete rules covering five types of Bugs – Warrior, Worker, Flyer, Puker, and Brain.
A Tunnel Building system that allows you to construct a wide variety of tunnels where no two are exactly alike.
Ten different Scenarios that are linked together, building your Story.
Army Lists for the Star Army, Star Marines, and Planet Defensive Force.
Simple Campaign Rules that tie your Mission’s together, giving you a reason to play, with little bookkeeping.
Easy yet realistic rules allowing you to play solo or co-operatively against the game, or head-to-head against your friends.
All this and much more.
The campaign is exactly 1/2 funded (at time of writing, anyway) with still 13 days left to go.
