Can you squeeze 15mm models into 6mm rules?

Some thoughts on using Laserstorm fast play rules designed for 6mm models with 15mm models.

By Podsy McPod

I wanted the action to start quickly in this test game so used a 4x4 table but on reflection 6x4 would have been better.

I have been a big fan of Fireteam Andromeda rules for the past couple of years. They have great tactical depth with their unique command and control system. They would remain my rule set of choice for serious competitive play. In recent times though I have hankered after a rule set that was a bit lighter and allowed me to get more of my ever expanding model collection on table at once, especially vehicles.

Laserstorm rules are designed for massive battles using 6mm models. The minimum suggested game size is around nine units a side. A unit being three standard vehicles or field guns, 4 light vehicles, 6 infantry stands or one super heavy vehicle or behemoth. This is the sort of size of game I have played so far. Units are arranged into three battle groups of roughly equal size. Weapon ranges seem fine used unmodified in 15mm. The rules suggest infantry stands of 4-6 models but my figure collection would not stretch to that. I chose stands of 3 models so that my standard units of 20 models could form an infantry unit. It also takes up less real estate on table. Purists may argue that three figures do not make a fire team but it looks OK to me.

Deployment and activation is by battle groups which are represented by a playing card. Also added to the deck are snap fire cards which allow one side to make a single unit fire or move out of sequence.

The rules are very simple and elegant to the extent that you find yourself wondering why has no one done this before. Units have a score to hit on their stat line. If there is not a clear line of sight to all of the target unit or if the target is in terrain the firing unit has to roll higher than their base "aim" stat, effectively a -1 modifier. Weapons are divided into three categories general purpose, anti infantry and anti tank. Fire at the wrong category of target for your weapon type you automatically need an unmodified 6 to hit. That is it! It sounds ridiculously simple but it just seems to work. 

Targets get a saving roll based on their class. Infantry and light vehicles save on 1D6, vehicles on the sum of 2D6, super heavies on the sum of 3D6 and behemoths on the sum of 4D6. Vehicles save on only 1D6 in assault so are vulnerable to being overrun by infantry. Units will have a saving roll typically in the range of 3+ to 6+ which is modified by the power of the attacking weapon system. For example an autocannon field gun has a save modifier of -2. So firing on a scout walker unit with a save value of 5+ the walkers would need 7+ to save on the sum of 2D6. If they failed any save and were in cover they would get an additional saving roll of 5+. In the above example infantry in the open with an identical save value of 5+ would be destroyed being unable to roll a 7 on 1D6. So infantry and light vehicles get a massive boost to survivability by being in cover. This system means practically anything has some chance (although it may be tiny) of destroying any target.

Casualties are removed from the nearest model to the firing unit working backwards. A score of 1 to hit is a 3" pushback working from the nearest model after casualties are removed. Victory is decided by scoring points at the end of each turn for uncontested control of victory point locations. This casualty and push back system means there is a great degree of uncertainty over being confident you will hold or contest any given objective at turn end.

Disaster struck this super heavy tank early in my last game. Rolling two ones out of three save dice it failed by 1 to avoid being destroyed by the tanks main guns.

When a unit takes sufficient casualties (one or two depending on size and class) it must make a morale test. This is a simple unmodified score on 1D6. A fail means morale has broken for that moment. If playing in 6mm I think I would use the detailed rules on commanders and regrouping but in 15mm it just seems wrong. An alternative given in the rules is that the unit has to retreat 12" and this works fine.

The rules give three options for unit building. From scratch, add weapons to a chassis or ready made units. The first army list book has just been released. The points system if using the ready made units seems fine. It could be exploited by those determined to win. For example you could give your infantry RPG's a massive range boost for only a few extra points. The points system is under review and I am sure will be updated as players report in. You can alter every stat and add traits and special abilities to units and weapon system. There is enough here to cover every conceivable unit type and hero units if you want them. Alas for me this detailed pointing system (which I highly commend) is just too much for my maths skills. It is crying out for computer aid via a spreadsheet or online army builder. Anyone care to take up the challenge? Get the authors permission first of course.

Tanks burst through Naga lines wiping out all opposition.

So does it work in 15mm? For me I will answer yes with a couple of provisos. Even if you have the models you don't have the room to fit in the large numbers of heavy vehicles the system is suggesting to use. Unless of course you happen to have a massive gaming table. On a standard table 6x4 I don't think I would push much beyond 12 units a side, but compared to a lot of games I see being played that is still a huge amount of figures. There is fair amount of luck in the game which is emphasised if using a relatively small number of units. For me it is an acceptable level in view of the fast play time. The photos are from a game with someone playing for the first time and the game completed in 2 hours from deploying to winner declared.

If you do have a collection with lots of light vehicles (with a small footprint) like Battlesuits and lots of infantry these rules may suit you down to the ground. I can't help thinking they would work equally well for modern games. I think they would work spectacularly well if you are lucky enough to have an urban terrain board.

In fact these rules are so good you might just be tempted to start a 6mm collection.

Flaytrap Factory presents Brotherhood of the Fly on YouTube

Hey all,

Since October there has been a new YouTube program put up by Flytrap Trap Factory called "The Brotherhood of the Fly". While not exclusively devoted to 15mm science fiction, this program, hosted by Flytrap Factory's Anton Ducrot, Zombiesmith's Josh Qualtieri, and Jonothan Boen of BoenArrow Sculpture Studio.

The trio of hosts put together a regular 90 minute videocast where they discuss the industry, their craft, their products and all things miniatures. Along the way they have guests from the industry. So far this has included Harold Crossley of ClearHorizon Miniatures and digital sculptor John Bear Ross. Future plans include Arthur Braun of Skullduggery Press as well as myself, Eli Arndt of Loud Ninja Games. Plans exist to continue hosting other smaller independent manufacturers from all ends of the miniatures business and craft.

Here are the episodes that directly address our corner of the hobby.

"The Brotherhood of the Fly" Episode Two... Zombiesmith / Clearhorizon Special!

"The Brotherhood of the Fly" Episode Three... John Bear Ross!

Brigade Models - The Alaudae Legion and West Riding Yeomanry

The Alaudae Legion

The Alaudae Legion – led by Colonel Cornelius Dark – are an elite Frankish unit from New Gallia.

The mid to late 330s saw the implementation of the effective refit of the Alaudae Legion. Many older vehicles were scrapped or sold on although, for a long time – even as replacements were brought in – units were often fielded with mixtures of older vehicles and newer AFVs as the transition and upgrades took place.The Legion’s re-equip needed several new pieces of equipment. Unable to find a suitable heavy tank from existing designs, the Legion persuaded AMX to develop a version of the Garibaldi tank with an extended hull. This was then paired with the large turret from the Sohei, purchased from Mitsusaki Industries on Hiroseke, to create the Larminat. This hybrid tank was so successful that the Legion repeated the process with the Montsabert. This had initially been rejected because of concerns over the small size of the turret, but Mitsusaki-manufactured Shaman turrets were paired with the hull to create the Shamont, which required a slightly larger turret ring but little else in the way of modification.

The Larminat and Shamont are now available from the website, and we’ve also added three detachment options for the Legion – Armoured, Heavy Armoured and Infantrydetachments each with eight elements. Each detachment comes complete with crew figures, stowage packs, infantry bases and other bits and pieces. Another new model which the Legion require is the Weygand missile tank, known as the Damselfly II in Legion service.

One of my painting tasks for the next few weeks is to put together an Alaudae army ready for action in the new year. Once this is complete, you can be sure they’ll be put in front of the camera for an extended photo session.
The West Riding Yeomanry

Our EuroFed vehicles were co-opted into the Hammer’s Slammers universe by John Treadaway a while back to create the West Riding Yeomanry. I’ve finally put together a painted unit of my own and added this as another HS detachment option on the website. The detachment of seven vehicles and three infantry elements comes complete with vehicle crew figures, stowage and other bits and pieces.

The WRY require one new vehicle option, a gatling armed version of the Montsabert hover tank. John created his own originally by using the secondary gatling weapons and fitting those to the main turret, but we’ve now created a proper version.

New Vehicles
HS15-414 – Larminat Heavy Tank – £11.00
HS15-415 – Shamont Hovertank – £8.00
SF15-401f – Weygand Missile Tank – £8.00
SF15-401g – Montsabert Gatling Tank – £8.00

The week-long sale will start on Friday, November 27th (Black Friday) at 12:01 am EST and will run until Saturday, December 5th at 12:01 am EST. All items, including new releases, are on sale and sale prices will be marked. No coupon code is necessary

Evil Bear Wargames offer

If you're quick, you can get a free teabag from Evil Bear Wargames...

All orders today only will receive one posh Whittards Breakfast teabag for every £10 spent. Spend £30, get three teabags. A Great British offer!

They are doing this rather than a having sale because their miniatures are such great value already!

GZG Christmas Sale

Ok, it's not a Black Friday sale, but it's the annual Ground Zero Games Christmas sale and that's worth getting excited about!

In Jon's own words:


Our 2015 Xmas Specials are NOW ON as of today, THURSDAY 26th NOVEMBER, and they will run until MIDNIGHT (2400 Hours) UK time on Wednesday 23rd December. This year I've kept to the same offers that have been so successful and I popular over many years, with one difference - I've simplified the qualifying criteria for the offers to use the FINAL TOTAL VALUE of your order - the actual amount you pay - rather than getting all complicated about sub-total values, VAT-exclusive prices and stuff….. so this time round, ALL ORDERS WITH A TOTAL VALUE 
(INCLUDING SHIPPING AND VAT WHERE APPLICABLE) of 30 GBP or more will qualify for both parts of the special deal:

1) All qualifying orders will get a FREE CHRISTMAS GOODIE BAG of extra minis and stuff - how much you get depends on the size of your order, and we'll tailor most of the contents to fit the kind of items you are ordering (and maybe the occasional sample that might tempt you into other ranges and scales...). What goes in the bag is OUR choice, so no being cheeky and asking for specific codes please - but those of you who have had our previous Xmas deals will know that we give you a very generous selection of items that you can actually use for your armies/fleets - usually much more stuff than you'd get from a simple discount offer!
Sometimes we put in the odd special or unreleased item too, so you never know what you might get....

2) In addition to the Free Stuff with your order, all qualifying customers will also get a VOUCHER that you can use to get a generous DISCOUNT off a further order placed after Christmas - so you can get your pre-Xmas stuff now, and then use the voucher up when you have some gift money from all those relatives who have absolutely NO idea what to buy for you!

This year, the vouchers will be valid for the whole of JANUARY and FEBRUARY 2016 - so the voucher codes will become "live" on the store on Friday the 1st of January 2016, and any un-used ones will expire at Midnight (UK time) on Monday the 29th February 2016. This should give you plenty of time to use your vouchers after the holidays are out of the way.
The value of the voucher you will receive varies according to the size of your pre-Xmas order - if your total order value is from 30 GBP to 100 GBP then you'll get a voucher for 15% discount; any orders with a total value of OVER 100 GBP will get a 20% discount voucher!

Each voucher carries a unique code number that allows you to use it for online orders. Each voucher code is valid for ONE USE ONLY, and after that use the store will not accept the code again. Therefore please don't complete checkout or make payment unless you are 100% sure that your order is correct and complete. In the case of any difficulty, please email me (Jon) immediately through the contact information on the store and I can re-set your voucher code for another attempt.

Brigade Models (Christmas and) Black Friday sale

We don’t do Black Friday sales, we never have. But what we do have is the Brigade Christmas Sale ! This year we’ve changed the timing a bit, so that the sale starts today (so it sort of is a Black Friday sale, it just goes on a bit longer …) and will run until the end of Wednesday 23rd December. It will not run over the Xmas-New Year week this year, so that we can hopefully clear all of the orders by the time the holiday period starts. It also means that you have more chance to get the orders delivered in time for presents.
It’s the usual format – a blanket 15%off everything that we make (tanks, spaceships, figures, buildings etc). It doesn’t cover anything that we don’t make ourselves (dice, bases, rulebooks, Shapeways 3D printed items). Full details are here.

From The Wasteland Lumbers...

Terrorclops and Wasteland Buddies released by Loud Ninja Games!

Hey all,

I sit here in the early hours of Thanksgiving Day  here in the U.S. presenting, to you all, the two newest additions to my post-apocalyptic miniatures range. While my first two packs presented human-sized mutants of the gang or tribal sort, these two new figures represent a move toward larger miniatures - 

RAP028 Terrorclops (1) 5.00 GBP  is a huge mutant monster, the sort of thing that adventurers in the aftermath would encounter and overcome. I sculpted him to be monstrous and twisted have his anatomy rearranged so that his mouth is in his gut with a single eye taking up his whole face. He is armored on the back and armed with a wicked spike where a fist would be, perfect for piercing prey and feeding them to his gut maw.

RAP029 Wasteland Buddies (1) 3.00 GBP brings to you a paired up team of wastelanders. A human-sized survivor rides  atop a massive humanoid used as both companion and beast of burden. Festooned with gear the large mutant packs a a club made from a piece of an old lamp post, the concrete anchor providing a sturdy club. The smaller companion carries a long rifle for hunting and protection.

The are produced and sold across the world through our partnership with the excellent folks at For additional information these and other product from Loud Ninja Games and/or read HERE.

Loud Ninja Games - Vasseth Strike Tank Released

Vasseth Strike Tank and Reaction Force released by Loud Ninja Games!

Gavin beat me to the punch on getting the release post out, so I'll say my bit and then show his post from the blog. 

The Vasseth is another design brought to life by the 3D sculpting of Andreas Udby who also did the Sirrus APC. The Tank is designed to be a fast-moving attack craft that seeks out targets on the battlefield and supports Chuhuac formations. While the weapons combinations were created with certain combos in mind, you can certainly make up your own configurations.

"Vasseth “Cunning Killer”. Named for a genetic descendant of terrestrial predatory dinosaur (something akin to a 30ft raptor), the Vasseth strike tank uses grav drive to allow it to speed across the battlefield, manoeuvring for pinpoint strikes and support of the fast-moving infantry. The Vasseth comes in a number of variants. Degara – Two accelerator cannons. This variant is utilized for fighting medium armoured vehicles and hard points. Paragara – Plasma cannon and drone missile launcher. This variant is mostly used for infantry support. Heggar – Heavy accelerator cannon. Used for long range engagement of heavy targets."

Produced and sold across the world by the Loud Ninja Games range continues to go from strength to strength and now adds three more codes to the Chuhuac 15mm Space Raptor part of the range. Following up on infantry packs, drones, grav bikes, an armoured personnel carrier and platoon and herd packs there is the Vasseth Strike Tank a light grav vehicle which gives your Space Raptors even more bite on the battle board!
