These set of rules are really wonderful. Easy to understand and very clean mechanics that let you play in every kind of settings. You will be also able to make all sort of things without any limits during your scenarios and the Author is very helpful and friendly, in case you have anything you would like to add to your games.

There will be also a companion expansion soon.

"Burning Sands is a surprising wargame where you put yourself in a heroe's shoes, using a original dice pool system you will fight against minions and terrible villains, choosing when and how to use your Vitality. Although, in essence the rulebook recall to CROM, the system is much more dynamic and smooth; the characters have a Vitality points that are their life points but also generate a number of action points that they can use to fight, move, or make another actions.

You can see AARs and longer review in my comrade blog: http://slormwargames.blogspot.com/2018/08/a-break-to-test-burning-sands.html

And a interesting AAR: http://slormwargames.blogspot.com/2018/08/burning-sands-rescuing-lady.html

Enjoy!

I really like what you have here. This is a great foundation for an outstanding skirmish game - very flexible with a truly "HEROIC" feel. Don't get me wrong, the base game presented here is extremely playable, BUT we need more. Really hope you do publish the additional content to discussed in your Design Notes.

Thanks for the kind words. I am already tinkering (fine tuning?) some mechanics around fighting styles, I want people to be able to reflect what their miniatures look like with a bit more accuracy. Currently I am working on two handed style, sword and shield, and dual weapon. Then there will be more abilities of course and a more detailed experience system. Plus anything else that creeps into my head! Please do feel free to create an account on The Wargames Website and join in the conversations there about the rules and see what other people are doing.

First, I should declare that I was a proof-reader of the rules.

With that out of the way, I reckon these are a very nice set of rules to create "legendary tales of high adventure". They'll allow your hero to cut a swathe of mayhem across the table, creating a chronicle of their exploits

As the description says, they are simple, but there is certainly enough there to keep you engaged and making difficult/interesting tactical choices

Also, given the format and style - most enemies will be sword-fodder to a hero - they are eminently suitable for solo play.

TL;DR - great fun, ideal for solo play; thoroughly recommended
