How open and anything is it? Would it let you pitch 1000 cavenmen against 5 space marines and have it a balanced fight or does it assume everyone is the same tech level? I’ve always been curious to see a system that would scale across history (and perhaps mythology) appropriately.

Okay now if they can get to more modern/scifi models. Including vehicles and, dare I say it? Space Ships!? This is now a company to keep an eye on.

I’ve been looking for a good generic system for all the orphaned miniatures I have laying around. Hope this can fit the bill.

Got this from KS, but it never hurts to have a spare copy. Gonna have to look into the other book`s, particularly the Black Powder one.

I think this is an interesting concept. Maybe a good way to get someone into an era before delving deeper with a more specific rule set?

very interested to see if an open rule set and offer more than specific rulesets. Having a generic ruleset to cover all my minis and to be able to play different eras is interesting, but i also like collecting rulebooks and playing the games how the designer intends, and it’s whether the minutiae you lose when you go generic is enough to have the ease of use and the familiarisation you can get from similar rules applied across multiple games.

I really like the idea of being able to mix and match!

This sounds like a good idea, Especially the multi-player.
