Counterblast 2nd Edition PDF


Counterblast is a skirmish-level miniatures battle game in an atomic raypunk setting. Players control crews of pulp sci-fi heroes plying the spaceways in search of uncharted worlds, alien artifacts, new territory for colonization, and essential deposits of ultonium. In this book you will find all of the information you need to play the game, including rules for how to create your crew, how to set up a table, and how to battle for control of the Outer Reaches and beyond!

  • Setting Up – The ideal size for most games is 3’ or 4’ square, but can be larger or smaller, based on preference or what’s available
  • Playing the Game – Counterblast uses ten-sided dice (d10) for all skill and ability checks for shooting, fighting, and other actions. 
  • Actions – Each model may perform two actions during its activation for moving, shooting, fighting, or a list of other options.
  • Conditions – Results from attacks or reactions to environmental effects may cause one or more conditions to a model.
  • Terrain and Environments – Several types of terrain features have ratings that affect gameplay.
  • Equipment – Equipment allows or enhances a model’s interaction with other models or with the environment.
  • Psionics and the Deep – Many sentient species of the Outer Reaches have, either through naturally evolved abilities or training, developed their minds and attuned their senses to draw on the cosmic powers known as The Deep.
  • Vehicles – Rules for all types of vehicles like flyers, walkers, tanks, etc. Includes a Vehicle Builder for customized models.
  • Missions – Each crew chooses their own mission for objectives rather than a common scenario and may try to thwart their opponent.
  • Campaigns – Level up your crews, requisition new gear, uncover salvage and relics, and recruit new heroes and lackeys.

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.
