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.

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.

Over a relatively short space of time, mankind has grown as a species to be one of the most numerous in the galaxy. A very high reproductive rate, combined with a lifespan ranging from 80 to 200 years (depending on the settlement) means that human outposts can be found in almost all parts of the galaxy.

Genetically engineered super soldiers, fielding highly sophisticated power armour and state of the art weapons. These soldiers were once human but have undergone such dramatic alterations that they may as well be a separate species! The Space Knights patrol the galaxy ensuring order prevails and enforcing the rules of law with brutal efficiency.

Existing long before mankind had reached the stars, the ancient and eternal Elves have traveled the galaxy. Similar in appearance to a tall, slight of build human, the Elves possess near supernatural strength and speed. Many of their kind are also able to manifest powerful psychic abilities.
