One page to rule them all...

I did it. At least I hope so.
For years I felt that constant itch of needing a rule system that would let me use my Epic 40 miniatures on a smaller level meaning that I basically play 40k with tiny minis and multibased squads. I tried Gruntz, Alien Squad Leader, Squad Hammer and Future War Commander which are all great games, but maybe not made for this special purpose.
Recently I stumbled upon One Page Rule's Grim Dark Future which seems to let me do just like I wanted. Motivated by my find I revamped some of my Imperial Guard models adding some black and proper highlighting. Now I am starting to do the same with my Chaos and Ork armies to have opponents for my first tests.
I can field tanks, APCs, artillery, infantry, elite troops, command units with heroes and even more stuff. Painting this in 28mm would have taken ages, I guess. The units receive a stat card with hit point boxes that can be ticked off. Every man counts!
Did I mention that Grim Dark Future can be played solo? Seems like that system was made for me... If not, my eternal quest is just going to continue.

  1. It took me several pictures, actually until I saw the Baneblade, to realize they were 6 mm and not 15, awesome painting mate! Waiting for some AARs.

  4. Those look great. In particular the painting on the baneblade is excellent. I'll have to have a look at these rules: they sound really interesting. Excellent work!

  5. These look wonderful, especially for 6mm.
    Guess many gamers are alike, always searching for that holy grail but never truly finding it. Hope this ruleset will keep you happy for many years to come.

Goodbye Firestorm Armada: The Directorate

I'm selling spaceships again. Before they go, I'd like to show them here. I was happy with the paint job, but they are just too big....
