Playtest Rules from GZG
Jon Tuffley from Ground Zero Games, makers of Full Thrust, Dirtside 2, and Stargrunt 2, is working on a new set of rules called Stargrunt: Assault Company. They are geared to reside between Stargrunt and Dirtside in terms of scale, with multiple 15mm figures per base. I'm sure the rules will be great, just like all the other GZG rules, and I will probably buy them just to have them, but I just don't see myself playing them. I've never seen a single multi-figure base Sci-Fi game in the US. I've seen pictures of a few in the UK, so maybe they're more common there. Jon seems to be gearing rules towards his better selling 15mm line, and after 14+ years, FMA Skirmish seems to be officially Jon's lowest priority, which makes me quite sad and disappointed.
