Icon Wargame X

I'm here to talk about a Wargame. We'll call it Wargame X for now. What i special about Wargame X? Well, for starts, I'm making it. I know there are a lot of things that are going to be said, let me respond to the first of these. NO! I am not going to give up because its a stupid idea. I know there are many wargames out there, many of which are better thought out than anything i'm going to do, and there is always GW, but I really want to do this.
My motivations?

1: GW. I'm not gonna try and rival them, that'dd be stupid, its never gonna work. ever. But my local GW i have many problems with, and am looking for at least a temporary alternative.

2: Cost. I want to provide something that wargames can do on the cheap, when times are rough, or if you just dont wanna spend that much.

3: I'm sure there was a third.... Oh yes. Fun and giving back. I'm sure i probably owe you guys at heresy something, so i'll try to give it back here.

Thanks you for your time.

I think you are a fool. But I am the sort of fool who will happily follow another fool. I will get such a good angle fell you fall flat on your ass with this. I will try help with anything you may need help with. But I must make it clear at this point I do think you will fail. But we will fail together.

I've seen a fair share of peeps attempting to create a new game system in my time and the vast majority of them haven't gotten anywhere, so it'd be a great thing to see someone with a lot of dedication do this. I wish you luck, I only hope that you be true to your word.

One question, could you please tell us more about what you plan to incorporate into this game system? What will it be like? What genre will it be? etc.

Regards,
Jake.

I generally like games based on that time period roughly. I'd be happy to pitch in with the odd bit or so to help you out with your endeavors.

As for the closed thread, you won't be able to but if you want me to close it for you I can do. What is it exactly you want to do in the closed thread? Write an overview of the game? PM me if you can.

Regards,
Jake.

You have the option of posting it in the Heretic submissions forum if you don't want anyone else reading it.

Only the forum staff and Heretic staff will be able to see it.
