Solo Wargaming in the Age of Sigmar – Part 5

Just a quick update.

Game Summary

– The 12 battleplan cards can be shuffled and used to determine which battleplan will be used. The battleplan card also assists in deployment of the AI army.

A Battleplan Card

– The player places the eight battle tactic cards into one deck. The player then draws one at random each turn, this determines the AI army’s battle tactic that turn.

Battle Tactic Card

– The Action Cards for that battle tactic are shuffled and one drawn for each AI unit in the army for that turn. These will determine that units action that turn.

I’ve changed the designs of the cards now so that they should be more appealing to players.

I’ve also designed the card backs to go with these.

I’ve had a number of players join me in playtesting and so the cards should be firmed up before the new year. However to make these into physical products I need your help! I need to raise roughly £400 to start the printing process. How can you help? Well why not sign up to be s Patreon of Woehammer? We have tiers available for as little as £2 per month!

Solo Wargaming for your Favourite Games

I’m in the process of creating a series of Wargaming Aids which allow players to play their favourite games in a single player format against an AI controlled enemy army. To find out more on this click here.

For as little as £1 a month (the price of a chocolate bar) you can help support me in this endeavour and receive cool perks as a thank you, such as access to our Discord Server as well as downloadable copies of the gaming aids which you can print out and use at home.

Why not pop over to Patreon and sign up and help me in this project? Money raised will go towards making these as physical products.

Solo Wargaming in Age of Sigmar

I’ve been toying with the idea for a while now on creating a solo wargaming experience for wargames, but primarily at this point focused on Age of Sigmar.

The idea behind the system is relatively simple, with a deck of cards for each battle tactic. The battle tactics will be decided some simple mechanics at the start of the turn, and depending on which is chosen that deck of cards would be used.

Each faction would be classed as either Aggressive, Neutral or Cautious. For example an army such as Orruk Warclans would be Aggressive, Cities of Sigmar Neutral and Kharadron Overlords would be Cautious. This categories would have purpose when units are interacting with objectives on the battlefield.

When an AI unit is near an objective, you would roll a D6 and refer to their aggression level:

Aggressive4+
Neutral5+
Cautious6+

If the score is equal to or higher than these scores then the AI unit will draw a card from the deck and carry out its instructions.

These would be on regular playing card size cards and a card would be drawn for each AI unit on the battlefield.

Below is an example card from the Broken Ranks deck that I’ve created for Age of Sigmar.

Based on the units keywords you would choose the relevant box for its instructions. For example Orruk Brutes may be classed as Melee, while Archeon could be classed as a Monster or as a Hero, however as the Monster box is above the Hero box on this card the Monster box takes priority.

I am developing these not only for AoS but for other major game systems as well. It’s early days by I’m hoping to have the first full deck ready to download from my Patreon page in the next couple of months.
