Free Sci-Fi Wargames Rules for 28mm or 15mm Miniatures


In order to create units or rosters you will need to login or register.

F.A.D (Fast and Dirty) is a generic, quick, uncomplicated yet realistic game system for modern day and future skirmish wargames (which can scale easily to much larger battles). The system is designed to be easy to learn and play but still allow for deep and strategic game play and is built upon basic military principles such as troop morale, motivation, and experience.

Each player fields a force, ranging from a few squads to a reinforced platoon with support elements, including heavy weapons, artillery and even vehicles.

You can try out the game using troops with basic profiles (and the basic rules) and then move on to trying some of our pre-written "official" units, or delve into our army builder and make some profiles for your own units.

Some of our Official Army Lists

Not every society is the pinnacle of advancement. Some groups exist on the fringes of advanced society, fighting for independent. Others are resistance movements fighting to overthrow the government, or insurgents attempting​ to assault neighbouring powers.

Out of all the horror of the universe, the plague is one of the most terrifying. Distorting and corrupting all that are infected, turning them into shuffling husks of their former selves. Even worse are the unfortunate few who are corrupted even further, turned into brutal beasts of destruction.

Humans were not the only species from earth to colonize space. As soon as commercial freighters started to travel between worlds, wild Rats spread amongst the stars. At some point in history these rats mutated and became sentient beings. Now they have built a society from the scavenged remains of other races.

As soon as humans began to explore the deeper regions of the galaxy, they encountered the Green Skinned menace? Devoid of fear and attacking without warning, few settlements avoid their onslaught. Greenskins exist for one sole purpose, to fight!
