Horizon Wars from Osprey


Osprey are releasing a 6mm sci fi game at Salute 2016.

Osprey seem to be releasing some very interesting games at the moment, I picked up their Black Ops rules as well.

I've been looking for a good 6mm scifi game for a while.  Future War Commander was good but no one at my club plays it, they prefer Epic, which I loathe.  Maybe this might get some traction.

"Beyond today's horizons lie uncountable wars still to be fought by mankind - on battlefields, against foes, and with weapons that can only be imagined. With Horizon Wars, wargamers can bring these future conflicts to the tabletop, no matter their exact vision of the future of warfare. Combining the feel of real-world combat and tactics with versatile and quick-to-learn rules, Horizon Wars is a 6mm company-level game that incorporates ground forces, aircraft and the titans of the battlefield - mechs. Whether you want to pit a handful of mechs against each other in quick clash of patrols, or line up combined-arms forces for a huge battle, the game remains fast-moving and enjoyable. Also included are full rules for building units from the ground up, allowing players to tailor their forces to suit the mission objectives or their figure collections."

I can see me having a good look at these rules at Salute.

Glad to hear you're excited about it, Urban Bunnie. If you come to the Osprey booth at Salute, do come and say "hi" and I'll give you a demo if you have time.

I wrote the game to be minis-agnostic, so you should be able to play easily with your Epic-enthusiast friends without needing too much prep time and perhaps they'll like its more bombastic and humorous tone more than the somewhat straitlaced (albeit still excellent) FWC.
