Galactic War One rulesBlue Moon Manufacturing have released the Galactic War One 15mm sci-fi rules.

From their announcement:

The much anticipated Galactic War One Rule book written by Scott Pyle, Joseph Dragovich and Schuyler Hernstrom arrived today. We are very pleased to make this announcement as we have had so many inquires as to when this book would be released. Your wait is over! Galactic War One is all set and ready to go on the www.bluemoonmanufacturing.com web site or on the Old Glory Corp direct web site.

Galactic War One, the first great war on a new frontier. Interstellar armies compete for dominance in unclaimed sectors of a galaxy made accessible by the recent discovery of warp gates.

    Is there any more info about this? For $25 I would like to have a review of the rules or even an idea of how the game is played.

  • The game leans more toward mass battles. Units are usually comprised of 3 – 6 bases or fireteams of troopers. You can put whatever number of troopers on those bases you like–it’s to your taste.

    Basic engine is a 3D6 roll high, and most rolls are opposed. The rules also feature a build system to use any minis you might have. There are army lists for the Blue Moon figures as well.

    Let me know if you have more specific questions.

      Hey Scott,

      There are a number of units which don’t have models and models in the Blue moon 15mm sci fi range, such as the Aquans, Robot Legion and Shivan Sisters, which have no representation in the book aside from being part of the art. Do you know if there are plans to fill these gaps? I’d really like to know what an Orion Dropship Command looks like or how big it is supposed to be.

      Oh, and what are the dimensions of the bases used. There are non given in the book and the resin bases mentioned are not yet available?

      Thanks,

      -Jordan

  • Excellent! Been waiting a while for these.

    I have other rules written by Mr. Pyle, so I’m sure these are up to the same high standard.

    This is getting ordered by the weekend.

    Thank you Mr. Pyle!

  • As it stands now, it is dead tree only. Unlike my Goalsystem games, I wrote this as a side-project for Blue Moon/OG, so I do not “own” it as I do my own rules.
