This is the full thrust line's groundside companion game. It includes vehicle designs, and also includes rules for shooting at landers from Full Thrust (FT ships are not landing capable...)

Also, it serves as the vehicle design system for Stargrunt II.

6mm [now free] sci fi rules from GZG- can be made to work with Full Thrust in a campaign game.

As a free PDF ill keep - I do, somewhere, have some Baccus Command Horizon stuff I could use but may just use my GHQ WW2 stuff to try it out.

6mm is also the Battletech scale for Infantry (28mm mechs) so in theory this may work with the 1/285 ish scale battletech bits

Page 28.
And I wanted it to end. Technically, I am not even sure if this is right, because I have a copy of the game plus enough minis (unpainted, unbased) to play this if I chose to. I would even like to do it - its just that I really have not time for that.

Had I counted this as a game that qualifies, I would have ended at page 32. And Ming Dynasty might actually interest me because of the theme.

This little game has surprised me a lot. I do not consider my game collection extreme at all. I have well below 200 games and they all fit into two dozen medium sized game boxes (some have more then one game in them and I do not count small cardgame boxes here.) All should fit into maybe 3 or 4 cubic meters. Still, I might need to downsize a bit more.

This is the ground combat component for Full Thrust ruleset. Both sets are very flexible and are designed to be modified to fit any universe. Each can be played separately, but can also be unified into a campaign.

Yes, the last thing I freakin' need - a game that encourages mini buying. I sold all of my Ogre/GEV minis last year to save space.

At least I've meet some people in the region who play. Maybe I can be cured by watching them play instead of needing to invest time and money into playing myself.

Of course, seeing a full bore game might just push me over the edge into a demented lead-buying binge. (It's happened before - just look over at those RPG minis I got at that store's going out of business sale.)

This is from the same company as Full Thrust, and is an army level table-top miniatures war game at the 6mm scale (although it's flexible enough to do other scales). An excellent game, arguably better than the OOP and poorly supported Warhammer Epic 40k/Space Marine line, which it is most comparable too.

The game has an implied background, but like its cousins from GZG, this can be easily ignored, and the system is designed to work with miniatures from any company.

Dirtside II is a available as a free download from GZG.

Another generic sci-fi that supports large walkers, but avoids the mecha label.

A 1:300-scale (microarmor) game of SF ground combat. As with its skirmish-level companion, Stargrunt II, Dirtside II emphasizes morale and its role in combat.

These rules have an option for using 50 meter measurement instead of 100 meters,so ASL boards work here also.

Played a scenario for a campaign I made up several years ago for a NAC unit,titled "The Irish Guards at Gamma Serpentis";the campaign revolves around the ESU trying to take a NAC colony world that borders ESU space,but ESU intelligence failed to note the Irish Guards are on-planet conducting exercises.The Guards would play the pivotal role in the defense of this world.

The scenario was titled "the Last Stand of Company C" and found a mech company of the Guards defending a mountain pass in a desperate rearguard action to keep retreating units from being cut off+annihilated.The company fought to the last man but succeeded in significantly delaying the ESU pursuit and allowing friendly forces to escape.The scenario also served as a means for the Guards to continue fighting gallantly to avenge their fallen comrades.

Victory was based on how long C Co. would hold out against waves of assaulting ESU forces;this would determine level of victory and how it affected the campaign strategically.

One of the few things I failed to write down and keep......
