Xenotactics warband game

I want to share a miniature game that I have been writing. It’s sci-fi skirmish inspired by Infinity, Song of Blades and Heroes and Necromunda. It has got a cool activation & reaction mechanic and tactical gameplay. The core rules are short and elegant but there is also a large selection of weapons & special rules to choose from. You can use any miniature and the rules include a point based character builder.

I have playtested and tweaked it by myself for some time but now I want to share it to other gamers. Please let me know what you think. Feedback is much appreciated.

To play you’ll need:
3-15 miniatures per player
3 ten sided dice per player
A tape measure
Miniature terrain (books and shapes cut from paper can be used as quick terrain)

One recommendation would be to re-format the rulebook, you have chapters starting 3/4 the way down the page on the left side. You could fill in the dead space with summary charts or artwork.

I actually reformated the rules to html today. You can read them on your phone now

I'm planning on adding an interactive warband builder to the website in the future.

I updated Xenotactics based on awesome feedback.

The major additions are:
- Campaign system
- Unit cost calculator
- Precalculated profiles

There have also been lots of minor changes to actions, weapons and special rules.

One typo I noticed at the beginning of the Asymmetrical Missions section...

You’ll notice that the defender also scores 2 victory points at the star of each asymmetrical mission. It is certainly better to be the defender.

Should be start.

Otherwise, I really like the formatting.

Im always happy to see a new game.

I find reading through them and building warbands to be a great way to spend time when you are a long way from home.
Ill defently have a go at this
