Official Pax Limpopo rules?

Postby Australian Dawn » Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:37 pm

Were any official wargames rules ever released for Eureka minis' Pax Limpopo steampunk/VSF figures?
For battles, not chariot racing or pig tickling or whatever.

I was always curious about the setting but nothing ever seemed to come of it.

Thanks.

That's a shame.
Anyway, thanks for replying. :)

I think Eureka did start writing some sort of skirmish system, but the last I heard of that was maybe ten years ago.

That sounds about right, I remember reading something about it that sparked my interest years ago in a gaming magazine.
It must have fallen through though.

Goddamn spellcheck.

Nic. Though he is nice.

Some things are just irresistible,no matter how they work out. I mentioned to Nic at a con that I fell for the Legion Etrange command pack--how could I not buy a camel-man musician with Sousaphone?

His response?
"Oh,so you're the one".

The minis might just be a bit too weird for most people to be willing to try and shoehorn into other games.
Dracula, Sherlock Holmes and giant steam powered robots seem to be accepted as being compatible, but adding Camel men and unicycles? that seems to be a step too far for most people.

I wish he'd made a whole camel band!

At least someone found a game use for the 18th century musicians:
