New Rulebook!

The link up the top right is now an updated version of the PDF - mainly tidies up the language, corrects typos, and tweaks the speed factors to make a more of a difference between the three classes. It's only taken me five years to get around to it...

Unfortunately I've lost the old playsheet to reformating an old laptop a few years back and the link is broken. Has anybody got the old file? I'd be grateful if anybody could email me one if so. Cheers.

Also have some linkage:-

A&A2 at Kublacon

Been ages since I did anything with the game(*) but we have a report of A&A being run at KublaCon 2012 in California.

* - not strictly true as I have been steadily stockpiling HW and Matchbox cars in the games section of the wardrobe. One day they will get kit-bashed, painted and glued to a sand-covered sheet. One day.

New Stuff

Two months? Crikey that flew by. Have some new linkage.



Rob at fourcoloursupers has knocked up a couple of cars here. Rob is an occasional attendee at Stourbridge to play A Very British Civil War with some of the club members and is interested in A&A2. We haven't actually spoken yet (the AVBCW group isn't one I'm normally involved with on Friday nights) but I have offered a game via a mutual friend.

Jim has another A&A car project on the go based around a non-transforming Transformer police car (no doubt the nephew could tell me exactly which Transformer this is).

And reference to a game of A&A at Fall-In but sadly no pics nor a lot of info really. A bit of a tease that!

Car Record Sheets

Right then, vehicle record sheets are like buses. Post-apocalyptic dieselpunk buses with mohawked passengers, pig iron armour plates and looted machine guns, but buses none the less. You wait ages for one and then two turn up at once.

Firstly, Trevor Swallow sent me this great PDF in A4/Letter size.

Trevor's gaming group blog is oppositionforce.blogspot.com.

Lance Tryon's approach is a little bit different - intended for Letter size print, the car record sheet is to be folded in half and placed in a clear card sleeve, much like the approach you may have seen Warmachine/Hordes player approach. Lance's PDF has all the cars from his deviantart gallery as well as a blank example for you to fill in.

The original .odt file for Open Office is also available but it is a bit big at just under 5MB zipped.

These are both truly great contributions to the A&A2 scene - please download them and enjoy.

Lanse Tryon's Cars


Lanse Tryon sent me a link to his Deviantart page with pics of his converted cars. Now these are radically different to the usual cars that are built for the game which start with a conventional HW/Matchbox car and add guns and armour and general grebbling from the bits box.

These have been built up using parts from Reaper's CAV game which is a sort of Battletech with nicer figures (IMO). The end result is very different as you can see. I assume that the size of the cars is roughly in the just-sub-3" range of the usual toys we use.

A thread about the cars on Reaper's own forums can be found here.

A&A2 in Minnesota and Canada

Been more than a bit quiet on the A&A2 front over the past month or so. Well, that's me being quiet anyway, others have not been so remiss.

Matt Helmen in Minnesota emailed me ages ago with a link to his report of a very pretty-looking game he ran over on Lead Adventure - excellent looking cars and terrain that puts mine to shame. There are more pictures in his gallery here. Cracking stuff.

Also emailing me and neglected up until this point is Glen Jupp of Hamilton Road Gaming Group who sent pics of another game in Canada. The blue plastic is water and everytime a car travels through it, it Loses Control. That's real Iron Man Axles and Alloys for you!



Thanks to both Matt and Glenn for the reports and pics, apologies for not posting them earlier, just the old hassle of Getting Around To It!
