Small scale rules

Postby Eviljim » Sat Jan 14, 2017 10:12 pm

On the Meeples and Miniatures podcast the possibility of a future release of smaller scale Swordpoint rules was discussed. Is there any news on this? I only own Ancients figures in 6mm and 10mm scale and I'm very interested in the smaller scale rules.

Not at the moment I'm afraid, we will be concentrating on the army list supplements for a while.

Hopefully, it will coincide with Gripping Beast releasing a whole new line of 10mm miniatures to go with the rules. :D

IMHO, the 40mm square bases in Swordpoint are ideal for smaller figures. Just use the same basing system and base strengths as given in the rulebook, and field as many of the smaller figures per base as you like. You could halve all distances for shooting and movement, or simply substitute cm for inches. At least, that is what I am doing for my own 18mm Swordpoint armies. :)

If you're using the same base sizing, there would be no issue of changing the measurements either. I plan on building a 15mm using the same basing format and see how that looks.

I too am planning on using the same base structure and just adding more minis to the bases

We have now completed our 6/10mm version of the rules and are about to commence final play testing. The armies are being painted at the moment. No publication date yet I'm afraid, but you will be able to use our existing army books with these rules.

Hi Having played a fair number of games now. in my opinion the game would be ideally suited to 15mm. 1000 to 1500 points in 28mm on a 6 x 4 can be a bit of a squash. Would have thought in 15mm on a 6 x 4 you would have a lot more manoeuvrability.

Yes you would. We prefer 8 x 4 for a 1000 point game, but felt we should go with the standard size most people have access to.

So if 15mm was to move forward. What would the base sizes need to be to conform. I know you guys don't do 15mm figures but if Swordpoint took off in 15mm you would sell a hell of a lot of rule and list sets !!! I used to play 15mm a lot ie 6th Edition then DBM. The Ancients game has fragmented significantly in the last 20 years. If a new rule set such as Swordpoint were to become the main Ancients rules then you guys could make a killing.
