This fantastic artwork on a promotional wallpaper for BrikWars caught my eye as I was randomly browsing the web. It strongly reminds me of Kev Walker’s Last Stand artwork for Warhammer 40,000 Space Marines (bottom right picture).

Mikle Rayhawk’s BrikWars online rulebook for tabletop games of mini-fig warfare is a well-formatted and immensely enjoyable read for a rulebook (most rulebooks that I come across read more like my Mathematics textbook. Since combat between several mini-figs is a waste of the massive plastic brick collections that some collectors possess, rules are also provided for heroes and squad combat as well as for those who wish to include vehicles, large units and buildings for additional mayhem.

The rules aren’t overly complex since they emphasize fun over rules-fiddling – I especially love the What I Say Goes rule in Chapter 1.2 which succintly states that “Players are smarter than rulebooks. Especially the ones with the highest dice rolls.” A very handy rule indeed for resolving difference of opinions during games
Unforunately the 8 chapters of rules are available as online HTML only so you’ll have to download it with a website copier like WinHTTrack if you wish to peruse it offline.
Read the BrikWars rules (10th Anniversary’s Edition – 2005) or download the cool wallpapers over at BrikWars. More of Mike’s artwork for BrikWars available at his official site.Books Cute Fun Stuff Games Tabletop Games
