Space Weirdos


Space Weirdos is a “skirmish heartbreaker.” About 10 years ago everyone was publishing their own old-school D&D hacks. Now a bunch of OSR nerds are turning to wargaming and discovering that the minis games are just as bad as RPGs for edition creep and other unforgivable crimes. So I'm publishing a short and sweet set of miniatures rules.

You’re wondering what makes Space Weirdos different from other games. Not much! It takes what I like from other games and mashes it all together.

  • Low model count: 5-10 models or so for each side.
  • Use any minis you have.
  • Short but comprehensive. Everything in one 16 page zine.
  • Minimal tokens, but still a few because I like them.
  • No tape measures or rulers, all movement and ranges are measured with 5” sticks.
  • Uses all your RPG dice (except the d20, d20's get enough love) because dice are fun.
  • A points system, but you shouldn’t worry about it too much.
  • Alternating activations, opposed rolls, Command Points, and random tables mean everyone is involved and rolling dice all the time.
Also includes:
  • A separate 4-page solo rules document.
  • A pdf with tokens, hobby advice, and a warband sheet. 

If you like minis games or 40K but giant rulebooks turn you off or seem intimidating, maybe give this a shot.

I want to get SW printed using an online printing service but am not sure which options to choose. Including the solo rules makes it 2O pages long. I’m guessing the booklet is A5, black & white. Is this correct? As for the tokens - is it worthwhile printing these, or is better to use the doc as a guide to make my own?

Question: Does the Reroll FP rule on shotguns only apply at Range > 1 stick? I think so but just want to verify.

Only to ranges greater than 1 stick, correct.
Hop over to the discord for other rules questions!

I'm a publisher on this platform, so I can't post product reviews, but I have posted a (very positive) review on my blog:

Also, it would be great to create a community on socials to share photos about models, gameplay, battle reports, home rules, updates etc!

I like what I see so far. I would email you or tweet or something, but I can’t find any way to contact you. Therefore: please make a t-shirt with the cover on it and I will buy that shirt. Also, just the logo would be good as a shirt design, too. Thanks!

Original electronic
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.
