Its been a real corker of a month at 15mm.co.uk with lots of new miniature release, news and behind the scenes work and effort. It gives me great pleasure to be able to announce the existance of a new games system here on the Barking Irons blog..first..before anywhere else.
Above you can see two images of the current working covers of the USE ME 15mm science fiction system book.
USE ME stands for 'Ultra Simple Engine for Miniature Engagements'.
Without going into too much detail at this point USE ME is the final development of the D6 engine that I and Alexander Scott and a few others have been using for many settings over the last five years in-house. Its totally simple, really easy to learn and it works well.
Copies of it in its raw form went back and forth to some of our best customers and as a result some of them asked why we had never published it so others could enjoy it too. Really there is no good reason, simply that it did not occur to us to do so.
So to that end we have begun work on turning the USE ME game system into a full booklet for 15mm science fiction gaming. Early copies have gone out to our trusted friends including Bob Minadeo the writer of Firefight 2.0, Mike White creator of the Flintloque 3rd engine and Mark Hannam over at Dropship Horizon Blog. All of them enjoyed it a lot and gave some great feedback.
More news will be coming soon including an examination of how the engine works and its uses plus what the punchy little book will contain. Already its been decided to make this system pocket size, really affordable and to print it in A6 format (which is some 148mm by 105mm so really portable).
I really do hope that all of you out there will enjoy this little game that we have kept private all this time. Who knows...perhaps you just might.
