It’s Tanks vs. Tripods, Big Guns vs. Heat Rays in a new 15mm Miniature Game of all out Interplanetary War in 1910.
1,003 backers pledged $304,720 to help bring this project to life.

In a desire to give people a clearer picture of All Quiet on the Martian Front, the Game Launch that this Kickstarter is all about, we are putting up this TRY IT PDF. I do hope you will give it a go. We think this game is a lot of fun and has tons of potential but I suppose we would feel that way!

We have been listening and here is a chance to “try it” before you buy it. As I have stated previously, I wish I could demo the game to each and every one of you personally but that is hardly practical. Here is a stab at the same thing.

This is NOT a “beta” release of the rules. There is a lot more to the game and the rules than you will see in this PDF, but it should give you a good sense of how the game will play out. It uses LESS THAN HALF of what you get in the IINVASION box set and that doesn’t count the FREE unlocks that have already occurred and are to come. Click below to download the PDF.

Do give it a go. I know that jumping into a new game can be daunting. Hopefully, this will help you in your decision to back this project.

As  new bonus, Scott Washburn from Paper Terrain has come in to help and is designing a nice little farmstead from rural 1910 America to fight over.  This farmstead will be FREE to all backers at the INVASION! Level and above!

Thanks Scott and Tally ho!  And a huge thanks to all that have Pledged so far. Your support is fantastic!

      The option is three "blips" for each stand, so that's 18 "blips" for six stands. That seems a bit excessive to me.

    2. Randall Case on

      That seem's right to me. Each tripod is a unit, three Roughriders are a unit, so 5 infantry stands with a command stand is a unit too. So I would assume that it would get 3 hidden tokens. And given the time period, 1910ish, a company being a single unit on the battlefield seems right. Assuming 30 figures represents 150-250 men that gives about a ratio of 1:5 for infantry. They would have maneuvered in companies during the Great War, so that should be right for this time period with each stand being, roughly, a half platoon.

      Just looking through the Draft rules and think I am being thick. Does the Infantry Company (i.e the 6 stands) counts as one UNIT? So for Blips/Hidden Movements you would receive 3 Tokens (Actual and 2 Dummies)?

      I want to say that you can find the gun stats in the US Army list.

      One thing for the larger models I would like to see.
      When damage is done perhaps things like 1/2 move, main gun damaged can not fire, and the like.

      Like the MarkIV a side shot should have a better chance of reducing movement as parts are exposed.

      Just like seeing the big ones reduced, as they are damaged.

      I also agree that Defense and Armor are a bit close in wording.

      It looks like Defense should be based on Size and Speed, where Armor is how much damage can be shrugged off without causing the unit issues.

      So maybe Defense can become, TS
      Target Solution
      Target Silhouette

      Just a thought.

      @Nick - Ah! Haha! Yes of course! The chart at the end, where a tank does make an appearance, had me confused. You are quite right, indeed. Thanks!

      Now to actually get some models together so I can try this out!

    7. nick_simmerson on

      @Fire Broadside - probably because the tanks are not used in that scenario?

    8. Fire Broadside! on

      I still can't find the stats for the Tank Gun though.

      It just keeps getting better!

    10. Fire Broadside! on

      This looks like fun! Just one thing though... is the stats for the Tank Gun missing, or am I going blind?

      I like the blip system will definetly have to give it a whirl. Thanks

      Yes, Power Bonus is added to the Armor Penetration roll. It is also added to the Tripod Damage chart when rolling on there.

      Kudos AD for doing this, and kudos to Scott for chipping in what will be my first piece of 15mm terrain!

    16. Steven Ivan Walk on

      The 'inside' buildings is pretty damn slick :)

    17. Chris Rivers on

      Thanks for the scenario, I have a couple questions. First, is there a turn limit? Second, I assume the power bonus applies to the roll to overcome the armor value.

    18. Lee Sweeney on

      Great news, I have ordered 3 sets from Scott all have been great, the dual buildings really help tell the story.
      The insides have details showing the destroyed buildings, when added to a base they are very sturdy.
