I posted the same in the Future Wars section!
See -> http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=61023.0
Let us talk there about the book from now on, I do not want the WW II Forum cluttered with our SF talk...
 Wink

Victory Decision: Future Combat released


Future Combat is the latest game in the Victory Decision line for 2013. A lot of talk about the game and some polls already happened on the ViDe forum on LAF. Initially it started under project name “Planetfall”, but after Spartan Games announced a game under that name, I decide to rename it in Future Combat.


I added a lot of new stuff to the WW II and Gear Krieg rules. Best thing most of these rules can also be used in any of the other books! For a more in depth look into what is new, feel free to read the Design Notes (excerpt from the book-> http://www.adpublishing.de/html/fuco_design_notes.html).

Victory Decision: Future Combat is a comprehensive game system to using SF Infantry units and Armoured Fighting Vehicles in Victory Decision. These rules cover almost all aspects of Science Fiction wargaming, from Troop Quality and Leadership to Air Strikes, Bunker Assaults, Combat in Buildings, Vehicle and VTOL combat.

Victory Decision: Future Combat features a unique Leadership-modified alternate unit activation system with an integrated Electronic Warfare aspect. The result is a fun and fast paced war game that involves both players constantly. The rules cover individually based infantry miniatures and also group- or multibased miniatures, aka Infantry Stands. While designed with 20-28 mm miniatures in mind the Victory Decision game system is flexible enough to handle any miniatures from 6 mm to 32 mm. So whatever your existing miniature collection consists of, you can start playing right away.

This rulebook not only provides 8 generic Scenarios but also point based Force lists that can be used to represent many classic SF settings. All necessary Game Markers are also included within this book.


As with our previous books you get a full colour version with many high quality pictures of fully painted models and a mostly B&W printer friendly version.

You can get the 128 pages high quality, full colour ebook via the Wargame Vault:
http://www.wargamevault.com/product/123481/
for $ 12,74.

Hello friends!

Do you think ViDe could be adapted for use with our project here: http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=63082.msg758796#new Huh??

It's roughly 30 figures a side and some cyber dinosaurs (which will probably behave like mechs I guess)

Hope you'll take a brief moment to consider.

Should be possible!  Cool
The basic SF troops are all in the core Future Combat book.

Dedicated CC troops are possible, but you have to deduct some points for the ranged weapons and add some useful CC abilities.
The Dinos can be done with the walker / mech profiles as you said.

If you have any special trooper or monster idea that needs a game value and / or characteristics just post it here and we can establish the rules.  Wink

The upcoming “Rival Species” book will include anything you need anyway…

BTW - please let us not clutter the WW II section, please hop over to the Future war topic already established.  Wink Cool

Thanks for the answer Agis. I already bought the set now.  Laugh

Reason I wrote here was just that I followed the link in the future war rules sets thread.

Asked on wrong thread earlier, has anyone created lists for the Quar universe using these rules?

IMO you can use the low tech list right out of the book...

Yes, I am already working on the Robot book.
Rival Species is doing fine!

Do we need more? IMO the genre is then more or less covered, maybe a dedicated book on Heroic Leader r Psi powers...

Robots is fine, maybe zero-G-Fighting (for Orbital stations and Space pirates). Psi is also needed. I think good campaign-rules is necessary, but not for all gamers. I will think about more.

Do not fear after the Robot book is done I will toss some ideas around and organize another poll!  Wink
