Hostile Environment: Special Forces


Hostile Environment: Special Forces is a fast-paced tactical 28mm miniatures game that is designed to be played on a battle mat with a 1” grid. The game is based on the Hostile Environment world, but is miniature agnostic. You may use whatever modern or futuristic miniatures you have from Vietnam, Cold War, Science Fiction eras, etc...

Get into the action quick! The rulebook and player aids are only about 15 pages. Straight to the meat.

Hostile Environment uses a die-pull initiative system to keep players on their toes. Better soldiers get greater odds of more activations, but lesser soldiers are allowed more numbers to keep fights balanced.

Each miniature represents a single unit ranging in skill from green to elite. There are over 15 different weapon types and 6+ armor types from modern weapons and armor to alt-future tech.

Most matches take about 90 minutes using at most two dozen miniatures.

H.E.: Special Forces can be played solo, using the Hostile Tactical AI card deck (sold separately).

2050, the world has entered total chaos. P68P, a poisonous pollen has killed over a billion people, while the toxic gnidia plant, once bred in labs, continues to spread like wildfire. Governments that once ruled humanity have fallen into darkness.

“The Great Wipe,” a hacker attack by the Red 76’ers in 2038 has virtually erased the internet. Now, only a few left have the knowledge to bring back the sciences that have been forgotten. Only the READ, a source of collective consciousness, allows mankind to share information. But, Paven the creator of “the language of God,” rules from the grave, spreading his mesmerism into weaker minds, leaving the zombies to his controlling thoughts.

Failure of silver, the nano blood that cured cancer and heart disease has left mankind grappling with age old viruses thought to be extinct. Scarmine Lab’s mercenaries formed a special force of Population Insurance Tactics (PIT) to find humans that can still create antibodies that have become dormant in most humans.

All that is left of the world is a Hostile Environment.

Product Information
File Size:
1.55 MB
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.
