Second Thunder

I've gone on record as saying that I think the real, true success of a Kickstarter is when the product being Kickstarted is made available to the general public. This is another such of those success stories. Pre-orders for the Open Combat skirmish game system hardcover rulebook are now being taken.
Second Thunder gives us a look inside their new Open Combat minis game. Check it out in this overview video.


From the post:

Open Combat author, Carl Brown, has posted a video overview of the rules system covering some of the mechanics of the new tabletop skirmish game.

In response to player feedback the 50 page PDF rules have recently had a guide to creating your first profile, a brief FAQ and a quick reference sheet added.

Now is the perfect time to join the fun in Open Combat.

Gav Thorpe gives us an inside look at the design of Open Combat, the new pre-gunpowder and fantasy skirmish game, over on his blog.

Open Combat


From the post:

As some of you will be aware, I’ve been pootling about doing a bit of games design work in my free time, mostly for the fun of it because who doesn’t like inventing games, right? None of those projects are quite ready for the light of day, either commercially or just to share, but for the past three years I have also been helping out my friend Carl Brown* on a new skirmish wargame called Open Combat.

Second Thunder has a new set of rules for pre-gunpowder and fantasy miniatures. The game's called Open Combat.


From them to you:

Open Combat is a tabletop miniature wargame suitable for any pre- gunpowder historical period or fantasy setting.

A fast-paced skirmish-level game that lets you create the heroes, battles and adventures of your imagination.
