Developing a new tabletop miniatures wargame.
« on: October 25, 2020, 07:11:02 PM »
If any are interested in giving this a look, we're developing a new miniatures tabletop wargame for release next year. This is a multi genre system, so one rules set for historical, fantasy, sci fi, WWII, and sci fi. The game is miniature scale and base size agnostic, so use just about whatever you already have. We tend to play with 2 mm and 6 mm, though we do some stuff in 28 mm also, mostly black powder with Warlord and Perry minis.

We added a new video today covering how we handle movement. https://youtu.be/5eYEN64K6yg

We also have a FB page up if any are interested in learning more. https://www.facebook.com/groups/AgesofConflict

Ages of Conflict playtest today - undead vs. mushroom men! Today we tested scaling the rules to a battalion level in which every base represents a battalion rather than a company. Successful test and good day of gaming, particularly when the dragon went down due to an incredibly bad roll. Follow along at https://www.facebook.com/groups/AgesofConflict

Thanks. We kept this test pretty simple in regard to the board as we were pressed for time, so we just used an empty table to get into the action quickly.

I like the scale. Reminds me of WH40K Epic.

I still have large Ork and Eldar armies that I painted in the mid 90's when it was just known as Space Marine and then Titan Legions. Those were the first armies I painted after a pathetic and aborted attempt at WHFB. I learned a lot.

Thanks. The undead are Microworld. The mushroom men and purple worm are all 3d prints.

Scale is 6 mm, same as Epic. Epic was my first foray into 6 mm way too long ago. :)

Looks very promising.  Can't wait to pick up a rulebook O0
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

A couple of black powder era art pieces for the game. We have the core art for the historical and fantasy sections complete. Starting on black powder now! Join us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/AgesofConflict for preview rules, status updates, and more!

Ran another demo/playtest yesterday. This time I used our battalion scale rules with 2 mm miniatures. Apologize for the camera angle. I must have moved the camera slightly after getting it set up as I didn't capture the entire dice rolling area.

Hi, All. I recorded a quick solo Ages of Conflict demo game in which an army of Medieval era Normans squares off with an extremely small sci-fi era army. Obviously a bit one-sided, though wanted to show the multi-genre capabilities of the system.
