The return of MWG "Death Race"???

Post by Fireman Tim » Wed Sep 28, 2011 6:37 am

I got the war gaming bug again.

A few years back we had a lot of fun playing death race. Anyone interested in paying it again?

Sounds quite cool! Is there a rules-set available/purchasable?

I wonder if Matt still has the rules. It would be a great publication for MWG to put out.

I smell a custom Death Race arena and everything.


Matt!!! You there?

All you need is a 40k bike (jet, motor or 1000 legged Nid skateboard for that matter), so the cost is minimal.

I think it would make a great project for MWG. Simple 'beer and pretzels' style rules with loads of options and great terrain eye candy (are you listening Matt?) We need a trophey too.

Perhaps staring things off with a biker build off. The best build to be voted on by MWG fans, the reward could be some sort of prize.

The grand prix would take place on 4 different planets/asteroids/spacehulks. We could even have team play if there are enough players.

How does the points system work? Do you work from an individual codex or something?

There should be some bike contruction rules somewhere. Frankly, i'd like to see these rules revised to include a printable card to record your bike on, gadget and weapon cards, and maybe a special manuever deck or something.

A lot of wargames are moving to a playing card system to bring in an aspect of surprise and uncertanty.

The point system allowed players to improve their bikes.

I found all the rules:

Basic Rules:
http://www.miniwargaming.com/Death%20Race%2040k.pdf


Bike Building:
http://www.miniwargaming.com/Welland%20 ... 0Rules.pdf

I am going to edit this and create a character sheet so to speak. Read the rules over. If you have any ideas this is a good time to discuss them.
