Newer Post Older Post Home. The rules were fasteasy to understand and had sheer sense of elegance that in rulez seldom found in commercial rule sets. Units get two sections to their phase, movement and combat action. A “minus” sign indicates the opposite. Players take the roles of “Combat Group Commanders,” leading ad-hoc battle formations composed of multiple platoon-sized elements. The model designs however were superb, particularly the space marines.

That way you can sneak up and fire on a unit before it gets a chance to move. The only thing I disliked about SG2 was you had to have 4 counters next to your unit dirteide it’s current condition. I’m not totally afraid of counters, being a hex wargamer in a past life, but too many gets difficult to manage.


Absolutely no tears and no marks, a collectible condition. The rules are somewhat ambiguous when it comes to vehicles taking up cover. Includes a list of available products. Posted by Steven Whitesell at 1: This vehicle holds the remote piloting and targetting links, comms systems, etc. This would simulate the tendency for inexperienced units to shoot prematurely in ambushes.

Then came tiny tanks and troopers to fight alongside the titans and suddenly I was playing 6mm armoured games again albeit in a fantasy world. If any of these tests kick the Morale below RO, the unit simply disperses, or surrenders. The digtside of planets would be settled by these tiny terrors.

Just received my beautiful hardbound copy of “Black Powder” in the mail this week and thank Rulws the pages are printed in “drool resistant” glossy paper!

The rules could be used for any thing from WWII to the future. The only eules I’ve heard about it is the way infantry shooting is handled. Still packing and moving – all of my miniatures are either at the new place or packed.


Gradually other interests came and went and somewhere in the process I moved from England to Spain. The unit creation rules are a big “plus” in its favor.

All in all, a great game at a good price. I’ve played both DS2 and SG2. I’ll be looking for a used copy of TW soon enough! The rule set was Dirtside II and my problem was solved.

I enjoyed the 40k fluff dirrtside warhammer 40k never really interested me. The c3 and combat systems are quite elegant.

Each player moves an entire unit. Does anyone have experience with these games? Looking for some of the veterans out there.

IMO that would accurately reflect the time it takes to find a good, true HULL DOWN position as opposed to just rushing up and using a judgement call to position yourself and get a shot off quickly.
