What miniatures rulebook are you reading?

Postby Whiterook » Wed Apr 17, 2013 9:55 pm

What miniatures rulebook are you currently reading?

Specifically miniatures...not board, card, etc. Right now, I'm re-reading Fantasy Flight Games' DUST Warfare: Core Rulebook. I've not played any games of this title but, I've been collecting the miniatures and will be painting them soon.

Sorry, I haven't been in for awhile, as I had lost and found a new job, as well as all other parts of Real Life (tm) intruding.

As Corvus Belli reported at Gen Con, they have been working on and have released N3, the third edition of the InfiNity miniatures rules. I haven't picked up my physical copy yet, but I have been reading the pdf. The rules are free to download from http://www.infinitythegame.com/archive.php It is a free download of the rules and army lists only, no fluff, for that you need to buy the whole book.

Enjoy

I`ve always thought the fluff is an essential part of games, but if you have been playing a game for a while and know all the fluff then it is great to be able to get the rules for nothing. Well done Corvus Belli.

Going to be picking up my hardcopy from the Guardtower today, and will be poring over the background book this evening. They have made clarity the direction of this edition, with multiple examples for most of the more troubling rules. Having the pdf on my Surface makes it easy to refer to during a game. As soon as CB gets the fifth version of their free army builder released, all I'll need to carry is my tablet, instead of a satchel full of books.

I am reading this book:
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/other-expansions/guide/

I received a free copy from the author because he used a couple of my scenarios in the book! This book is intensive strategy! It contains over fifty "proverbs" for game play, to make your game better. I am learning so much about strategy and tactics from this book! My "handle" is also the first one (50th) in a list of scenario designers that he thanks inside the front cover (it's alphabetical). This was my "pre-Christmas" Christmas present to me, and I am enjoying it a lot.

Trying to crack open this two book set, cleverly concealed in a hardcover slipcase... each book is heavier than it appears... high quality paper, mixture of new and old images... these books replace the previous rulebooks, though the existing supplements remain current, with no plans to replace them... newer miniatures have been inserted in this edition, instead of needing to revise the previous supplements...

those considering Infinity, really, really need to look this over... those that have not considered Infinity, need to start....
