Ah, I feel your pain, Morrus. The Battle Systems terrain sets have been an absolute godsend for me. I have been waiting a very long time for something like these to come along. Without a doubt, they have transformed the way I game now.

Too true! The pirates failed to hit with their missile attacks but when The Ace of Spades fired they scored a critical hit, which was devastatingly effective. Good fun nonetheless.

It was time consuming, Morrus, but it worked well. It helped that I gave all of the unnamed colonists and mercenaries identical stats - identical that is for each group. I then split them into three groups - right flank, centre and left flank. The mercs were better skilled than the colonists but cover played a huge part in keeping down the casualties of the defenders. All in all, it was a fun experience and it certainly tested the rules.

Well, that was fun

I have been vaguely thinking about a variation of the combat rules designed for larger groups. Not mass combat and units, but say 100 individuals or so. It would likely involve simplifying damage so you’re not tracking a hundred combatants simultaneously. Maybe two statuses - bloodied and dead.

That sounds like it could work. I would certainly have used those rules if they existed in that combat I ran.

I've been jotting notes for something similar for space combat. I need to firm it up and give it a test run.

[MENTION=6855284]M3woods[/MENTION]. I can see a lot of merit in coming up with rules for big space combats. I wish you well in bringing it to fruition.
