Fireteam Andromeda


Fireteam Andromeda is a dedicated set of rules for 15mm science fiction
games, aimed at roughly a reinforced platoon per side. It has been
designed as a quick game, light on the granularity, but heavy on the tactical

To promote this tactical gameplay, the game incorporates a very special
Command & Control system. The system represents the overall motivation
of the troops as well as the commanders overall ability to formulate tactical
plans on the go. As troops are fired upon and take casualties, the
commander will find that it becomes harder and harder to keep track of
everything and needs to prioritize his actions.

Fireteam Andromeda was also designed as a very light wargame. From
the ground up, it was designed around a couple of easy to remember core
mechanics, which gives a quick and satisfying gameplay experience; almost
no charts and very few modifiers to remember in the heat of battle.

Fireteam Andromeda is intended to be a generic science fiction wargame,
which allows for players to design their own troops, using some very
broadly defined unit entries that can be customized to represent almost any
miniatures out there on the market today. Customizing your own units is a
breeze - and the rules includes point values to allow for pick-up-and-play

Fireteam Andromeda is the first in a long series of rulebooks, campaign
books and scenario books from Two Knights Publishing aimed at giving
you, the player, all you will ever need to play science fiction wargames, in
any scale, using any setting and any miniatures that you already have or
want to have.

A Short Overview:

  • Use only die-type (d6) and rolling high is always good!
  • Utilizes a special Alternating Activations turn sequence.
  • Number of figures that can be, comfortably used, is around 40-50 miniatures a side, depending on unit type and size.
  • Includes point values for pick up & play scenarios, but these can easily be ignored if players so wish.
  • Variant rules are included for larger games (up to 150 miniatures a side) as well as for using smaller or larger scales (6mm and 28mm respectively).
  • Finally – the army lists should allow you to build anything you'd like to use for your army, albeit with some jury-rigging if you've got something reallyexotic in mind…

Fireteam Andromeda Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue... Add up to a rather good set of sci-fi rules apparently. Let me explain. I was attracted to this rules system by the advertising blurb which promised [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
