What are you playing on Battle Systems when it arrives?

Post by carcharodon on 12/5/2013, 5:44 am

I pulled the plug on the AVP KS, simply due to a lack of funds, what with Christmas around the corner. Think I'll try out Space Hulk first, perhaps a few games of 40k, and fingers crossed, it'll lend itself to Relic Knights.

Guess that answers the question on how adaptable the system is.

I am planning on running a 5150:New Beginnings (modified) campaign with my son having a single character to start out with.

I have begun some detailing for the other main characters : Codetrolls Blog

I will add some aliens (not from AvP unfortunately) and various police forces. My sons character will be a smugler type thingy that has to run from the police etc.. Plus he has a military experimental android with him (unknown to him) that several corporation operatives are hunting for... as well as the military of course..

That should gives input enough for many small games of 5150...

I plan on playing 40K mostly. I've wanted to play "zone mortalis" games since Forge World first put out the experimental rules for it. When I saw Battle Systems it seemed perfect for it (not to mention quite a bit cheaper then the Forge World terrain).

I'd forgotten that there were Zone Mortalis rules, I might have to download those and give them a try. The FW terrain left me cold, too generic IMO and looks like a rat maze, well, that and the cost, I appreciate that it's resin vs cardboard but just compare the amount of terrain you get for £90.

The crashed thunderhawk tile is worth every penny though!

I could never put my finger on it; but now that you mention it it does look like a rat maze. I don't mind paying Forge World prices for minis (I've got 2 contemptor dreads and some of the MKIII armour kits) the cost for the terrain is to much.

Planning on using this for Relic Knights but will be funny to see which actually arrives first... Battlesystems or Relic Knights

Also Robotech rpg tactics will work for certain scenarios i imagine.    I've given up playing GW games so actually going to look into the list of games for some fun alternative games... if I can convince any of the game group to give something other than GW and Warmachine a chance.

I am planning on Star Wars miniatures, Space Hulk, I caved and went for AVP mainly so that I could play it on this terrain. I've been looking at Infinity miniatures and am really quite tempted by them. I backed rivet wars, and while battle systems isn't at all steam punky I am wondering if that will play in one form or another as well.

Hi guys I plan to play wh40k (Tyranids / Dark Eldar / Spacemarines ) to start with, maybe some Space Hulk og I will probably give Zone Mortalis a try as well. Looking forward to see the final system and of course to do some battle in it.

Hy dudes !
I am here thanks to Prodos and their AVP KS. I will mainly use BS with AVP but also with AT 43 maybe... have to think about dealing without the Armoured vehicles... or a two part table Smile

It'll be WH40k for me, definately going to try the Zone Mortalis rules in it. As was mentioned during the KS, Deadzone should be great on the board with a little adaption. Space Hulk and Space Crusade are on the list to try, as is Warzone when some new rules come out.

Infinity is fun, but the game didn't quite sit with my mates so I don't see it getting too much use there. I'm not sure what else, but 40k is going to rock. Smile

I have a bunch of Alien and Predator Horrorclix and some Halo Marine Actionclix I rebased on 25mm round bases I want to use with Battle-systems. I need to come up with a rule set to use with these.

I'l be playing a LOT of Pulp City on these boards. I think Deadzone will also work really well on this too. I know they have their own stuff but when has that ever stopped a true gamer. Plus some MERCs and Sedition Wars (modified of course). Once they show up I expect to play Relic Knights and Robotech on here too.

I'm also going to be trying Victory Decision: Future Combat with this terrain. Brand new rule set...a description can be found here:

Btw this rule set is NOT on the list yet.

@Kingzombie I'd recommend it, AvP works really well, I use the CO2 scrubbers for vents, but would heartily recommend infinity on sci-fi2

I have the first edition of AvP. Frankly, I don't like the rules much and I also don't have a chance to play 3P. But I sure would like to use the minis I painted.. Cool
How do you guys plan to play AvP using Core Space terrain? It seems to me it's quite different from AvP tiles...

For BS terrain, I started just proxying what a tile would be in the terrain, without getting too hung up on it. The BS mats are quite nicely sectioned, so "tiles" are easy to pick up on.

Then I went with the movement in the beta of the AVP wargame rules.

Then I experimented with squares, like the old Leading Edge game.

Once I started changing the rules for AVP, I didn't stop. Smile Not many of the core ones left.

@Thothkins Have a copy of those rules you use? I'd love to see them.
I haven't had a chance yet to play. I'm going to try and get my boys into it. My oldest is video games all the way. There is still hope with my youngest.

Scattered across lots of sheets of paper with hand written notes. I was definitely using hand written proxy character cards.

I was going to pull them all together, but if I'm going to be playing Core Space... well, I'll see Smile

I think that Core Space rules will be much better than the AvP ones.. I'd rather just use the minis from AvP with another rules system.. Cool
