main points ive got so far
D6 game (this may change)
small scale skirmish games with a few models though will play for a long time (so not fast passed like 40k)
will have the ability do design your own faction but there will be around 3/4 main ones
will try to be realistic =]
One faction should be some form of army unit that is still hopelessly trying to regain order on Earth, and they live in the small colonies I talk about in the fluff. Most advanced faction but are expensive points wise. They would be all around good in every situation, like Space Marines.
Another should be the gangs and groups that roam the Wastelands. These would be very customisable with options to customise your faction's model's statlines (one upgrade gives all model a higher strength statistic but a lower statistic for something else). They wouldn't be as advanced (guns wouldn't be as good, as well as armor), but they would be cheap and would be decent in CC and would use Guerilla tactics (explosives planted on the map, traps).
One more could be Ferals, humans that have lost their sanity and now live in the sewers and underground tunnels of the world. They would not have many ranged weapons, but would be faster than regular humans, would be good in CC, and would be able to field large mutants and wild dogs. The customisation would be present as well, but not as much as with the Gangs.
For a fourth faction, maybe some form of mutant colony (not like the Ferals, these are completely mutants). They are humans that had their genes mutated with other creatures, making them less and less like a human. The average troop would be pretty bad overall, but they would be cheap as chips and would use Horde tactics. They would have larger mutant beasts as shock troops, along with leaders that would need to try to stay alive if you want the army to be under control. They could have very good CC specialists as well as some long range beasts to support the hordes of regular troops.
That's what I think we should include. Tell me what you think and I will write small stories for the factions we decide to use or create.
