I have to say, after working on my 'newer' vehicle, that this quote really hits home. Thought I would share.

”Things that are complex are not useful, Things that are useful are simple.”

+Ken Adams The Chrysler slant 6 was a workhorse and almost indestructible engine. It was rumored that they were developing it into a diesel which would have really made it indestructible. Then they killed the engine completely. Go figure.

Yes in this case it is the father teaching the kid to be a Chode.  Oh well, I guess the giant space cats will eat them both.

Some of you know this, for those that don’t; I have my own game studio, I have been working on a set of rules for Sci-Fi miniatures.  The game lets you use any miniatures you want to of either 15 or 25 mm scale.  I have rules for vehicles, troops, indirect artillery fire, and the expansion has rules for building vehicles, weapons and creating riding animals.  

After much pain and suffering, I sent it out to copyright today and hoping to have it back then put it out for sale.  
The game is called Firefight 2944 from Iron Wind Studios.  I linked some of the pictures from the rule set.  Hope you enjoy, if you have any questions, let me know.  

This has been both very frustrating and very rewarding.  Now I just hope I get some sales.  
 
Sent the rule set out for copyright today, the title is Firefight 2944.  When that comes back we will have it and the Vehicle and Weapons rules out on the market.  

For those that don't know, this is a 25 or 15mm set of Sci-Fi miniatures rules that allow a player to use any figures they want to.  It is figure line independent.  We will be coming out with a set of 25 and 15 mm vehicles, but there are not any figures planned.  

Here is some artwork from the game.

Introduction
I worked as a Game Design Instructor at UAT, until Dec 2012. On my off time I am usually hanging out with my brother and working on one of the (way to many) projects we are doing.

At the end of 2012, I re-launched Iron Wind Studios.  
 
I am currently working on a set of universal miniatures rules that are in 15mm and 25mm scale. The rules are science fiction based miniatures combat system. I went with a smaller skirmish based combat approach, so people can play several games relatively quickly. The rule set is not brand specific, players can use what every 15 or 25 mm miniatures they would like. The rule set includes data and rules for cover, indirect fire, squad size, vehicles (wheeled , tracked, legged, aircushion, flying, and anti-grav). Point defense and close defense anti-missile systems are covered as well as melee combat.

The first supplement will allow players to create ranged and melee weapons (from personal weapons up to heavy vehicle based energy weapons) as well as design vehicles that all can be used in the game.
 
This supplement will launch at the same time as the main rule set. I am going to for a launch at the end of April (this may change), I will keep this updated
 
The rules are in the play test stage now and the artwork is being done. 
 
We plan on releasing more supplements (focusing on armies created around a theme), as well as working on line of 25mm and 15mm resin vehicles.
