Another game by Ganesha Games is out. It is playable at best with sci-fi 15mm miniatures and it was thought having a mind about Khurasan Miniatures ranges. But, as every Ganesha Games rules, you can play it with what miniatures you prefer.

I playtested it some time ago and I participate with ideas of mine to it. The cover, realised by Andrea, was created by my input. As an exclusive for my readers, the cover blueprint:

Here a synopsis of the game:
“SWATTERS is an exciting, fast-playing miniatures system for simulating battles between forces of humans and aliens. Using 20 to 50 (or more) singly-based figures per player and moving them as units, two players can complete a typical scenario on a 6’x4′ table in under two hours. Every figure represents a single man, vehicle or alien. Squads move and fight as units (they are placed on spare CDs or mini-CDs used as trays). Single models are removed as casualties.
SWATTERS is an infantry-centric game in which vehicles, gun emplacements and giant monsters play an occasional role. Combat is based on the roll of a single six-sided die for the attacking unit and one for the defending unit. The difference between the scores determines the combat outcome.
The two asymmetrical forces each have a limited pool of supplementary dice that may be spent to ensure success in key tactical situations. Humans use these dice to gain an edge in ranged combat, while aliens use them to spawn reinforcements and become deadlier in close combat. The book includes rules for: close and ranged combat; overwatch, ambushes, crossfire, reactive fire, support weapons, and orbital bombardment; 35 special rules; profiles for over 20 alien and 22 human troop types; 12 ready-to-run scenarios and two additional scenario ideas; guidelines for solo gaming; a point system for designing your own troops; ideas for using Swatters for other types of conflict.”

What to add to it? Well, give a try to the rules, they are very cheap too. To read a review you can go to “Wargaming with Barks” blog. To buy them you can choose pdf or printed versions, on Ganesha Games website or on Wargame Vault. In the following days you can find them even by Amazon in kindle and paperback formats. While Khurasan Miniatures is thinking about special starter bundles of printed rules plus figures as army packs.
