Worlds End Puplishing_This is not a test press-release 2

World’s End Publishing is a company with a simple mission; to design fun wargaming rules. It is our view that miniature rulesets can be more than just a collection of stats and charts. They should be evocative of their genre, but simple with just enough rules crunch to satisfy. We are proud to announce that after three years of hard work we are now ready to officially publish our first game: This Is Not a Test, a 28mm post-apocalyptic skirmish wargame.

May 2, 2015 – Mark your calenders now!

On May 2, 2015 we officially go live. Our online store will open and This Is Not a Test and an accompanying line of miniatures will be released and available for purchase from the World’s End Publishing website. This Is Not a Test will also be available from Wargames Vault.

This Is Not a Test – Post Apocalypse Skirmish Rules – The Rulebook

From the Back Cover:

The great armed conflict known as the End War ravaged the world for years but came to its devastating conclusion in just seconds. In the aftermath of the nuclear attacks, remembered as the Great Fall, the United States was left a scarred wasteland. Millions died, polite society collapsed and scientific knowledge was lost in a forest of mushroom clouds.

But hey, it’s not all bad.

You and your fellow survivors live in the Tri-State Wasteland, an unforgiving land of mutants, lost technology and as much opportunity as danger. In this new world anyone can make their own destiny. But it’s not easy and you better have grit, cunning, and a willingness to get a little dirty.

Features

  • Playtested rules. Hundreds of games hours have been spent by groups across the country to make sure that TNT has been put through its paces. The rules have been revised and refined to a metaphorical razor’s edge. Be assured that TNT is not just a throw away ruleset to gather dust on your wargaming bookshelf.
  • No I go U go. Letting one player activate his entire warband before you can go is outdated and unrealistic. Instead TNT uses a dynamic activation system where at any time play can switch between players, allowing for a true anarchic battlefield.
  • Warbands of 5-20 models max. There is no need to go out and purchase a huge assortment of models. Chances are you might even have enough models in your collection to get playing immediately.
  • Six factions to choose from. Raiders, mutants, preservers, peacekeepers, tribals, and caravanners. All have different options and play a little differently. There is a warband for every taste. Plus each faction has a sub-type with different agendas, even friends can be enemies.
  • Plenty of mutations, skills, and abilities. TNT has over 60 different mutations, skills, and abilities. Different models types can choose individual skills, which encourages warband diversity. While there are a lot of skills, most models will have one or none, keeping the game relatively simple and not bogged down in minutia.
  • Harness the power of the past. No wasteland is complete without powerful ancient weapons littered about. Everything from laser carbines, plasma casters, and the ever popular power armor. There are over 25 separate relics waiting to vaporize your opponents.
  • Plenty weapons and equipment. With more than 60 separate weapons, armor, and equipment there is plenty of options to go around and a great chance you can use any model in your collection, no matter what their armed with.
  • Multiple scenarios and full campaign. TNT has five balanced scenarios to challenge your warbands and more will be released in the future. Further, a fully detailed campaign system is included to keep track of injuries, income, experience, new skills, and overall reputation. Watch your warband go from a bunch of softbellies to full wasteland legends.
  • A truly dangerous wasteland. TNT includes full rules for wasteland hazards such as emberquakes, ripwinds and other natural occurrences that are as dangerous to your warband as your opponent. Additionally, a bestiary is included with over 30 entries for various wasteland creatures. Everything from the simple rad zombie to the terrifying landsnapper has been catalogued and presented for your hunting pleasure.

Price: $25 PDF Only; hardback version coming.

Rad Roach

Price $6.50

It was surmised that in the event of a nuclear attack, only lawyers and roaches would survive – and the old cliché was half right. Roaches mutated quickly when exposed to the radioactive ruins of the cities and grew large and the Rad Roach was the result.

This particular model comes equipped with a gun (generic enough to be any type of gun needed) and a choice of either a brutal cleaver or open fist. The Depend-o-Bot is 30mm to its cyclopean eye. Sculpted by Sean Bullough.

  • Die Peacekeeper sind soooo Fallout… Und es gibt auch nen K-9 laut Seite… :3 🙂

    Mal sehen, was die Regeln hergeben und was da noch so kommt an Minis. Sieht jedenfalls für mich interessant aus. Da wird erst mal die Hersteller-Seite studiert ^^

      • Ich jedenfalls schon. Und zwar auf eins, dass mich auch Figurentechnisch sehr anspricht… Und was ich auf der Seite sehe, gefällt mir bislang.

        Aber man kann natürlich auch einfach unter jede Neuerscheinung im Tabletopbereich: “Oh ja, noch ein Sci-Fi-/Fantasy-/Football-/Raumschiff-/usw.-und-sofort-Spiel, darauf hat die Welt gewartet” schreiben, wenn man denn Lust und Zeit dazu hat und offenbar unbedingt trollen will… Aber tja, auch Trolle will man ja nicht verhungern lassen… Sind ja schließlich auch Lebewesen.

  • Ich will, dass sie den Fuchs/Hund mit den Zacken am Rücken und den zwei Schwänzen des einen Artworks umsetzen 🙂

  • Die Menschen sehen hübsch aus. Vielleicht kann man die irgendwo verwenden. Die Mutanten sagen mir nicht so zu. Aber an Fallout hatte ich auch als erstes gedacht.
