Angel Barracks: Burning Sands - Heroic Skirmish Rules

Angel Barracks: Burning Sands is a fantasy skirmish game with a desert feel. It is designed with a view to creating legendary tales of high adventure featuring your very own hero. 

It is not as complex as a traditional RPG, nor as basic as a wargame. Think of it as a sweet spot between an RPG and a tabletop skirmish game. Your hero will have stats, abilities and gain XP to improve as you play. Depending on what your hero is trying to accomplish, games could be quite short, taking only 10 minutes to play or an hour or so.  A simple straight up fight encounter will probably take only 10 minutes to play through.  If you want a traditional length game of say an hour or more, then the idea is to have a story with lots of little chapters that link together.

Each chapter is in its own right a little game with a unique table top set up and goal. Played on their own they would not take long, but play them together in one session, and you have the start of some pretty cool Chronicles. The rules are quick, simple and provide a core mechanic that is easy to learn but also allows for plenty of modifications, think of it as a toolbox where you can pick and pluck the bits that suit your style of play. With this in mind they have an advanced rules section for more detail.

Whilst aimed at 15mm figures you can easily use it with other sizes simply by changing cm to inches, or some other simple conversion. There will be continued support for this game both in terms of rules and supplements as well as models from Crom’s Anvil. You get two files with this purchase, one with fancy pants coloured pages, and one with plain white pages (but still has the images)
