    This is ace. Might have to look in to these rules as they look ideal at 6mm for when I am travelling around for work.

    thanks for sharing.

    lol, my plan is to get the larger stuff done and out of the way so I can get back to my beloved 6mm, spent the best part of the last 12 months on 15mm, just undercoated my epic Ork Speed Freaks army in readiness!

    Cool! I’ve been looking for an exuse to get me some of those 6mm Rapier chariots.

    How complex are the Faustus Furious rules, could you teach them to an 8 year old?

    @ian, its ideal for travel/holidays and for quick un-planned game sessions


    @Stroezie
    , they should be simple enough for an 8 year old, your chariot is activated on the turn of its particular card, then roll 1-3 dice(players choice) against a target number(on the 1st lap one dice has a higher target number than the others, on the 2nd lap, two dice do, to represent fatigue), each success allows an action(extra movement, attacks, righting a crashed chariot, slowing down, turning, etc) some actions cost 2 or 3 successes, too many failures is obviously not so good, its tempting to roll all 3 dice each activation but not always wise. Also different chariot classes have different characteristics, and turning takes some practice, Agile chariots rock til you get the hang of it!

    Its also a game ripe for home brew add on’s as daft or as serious as you like, and there is nothing to stop you using other types of transport/miniatures in place of the chariots – hover cars, giant snails whatever!

    Hmmm wonder if I should offer a chariot set, one of each type we sell.

    This looks pretty cool, but I must not be tempted!

    Huzzah! I’ve not been around here for a little while, but this post just made my day!ย 

    Those look fantastic – and I love the track as well. Simple, but very nicely executed. I’d love to see any race write-ups you put together. I’m also sharing your blog on mine.

    Well done that man!

    Thanks Nic , funnily enough I played this yesterday with my 7 year old lad which he seemed to enjoy even though I won( I was trying to lose, honestly!)
