Hard DayZ ahead! Hard DayZ Miniature Rules Kickstarter

9 Feb

Hard DayZ: Survival by HDS Games — Kickstarter.

Hard dayZ is a newly launched KS project by Glasgow based HDS Games that is worthy of note to Z- Wargamers.

What exactly is it? I hear you ask? Well it seems its a 28mm miniature ruleset said to be along the lines similar to RPG style of play. It accomodates both Vs and Co op games and will support its very own miniature range. Three playable factions are outlined for the game, which takes part in the fictional city of Mount Splendid. Game play looks as if its survivor based with the zombie action largely that of random controlled NPCs. What could be an interesting mechanic is that in PC Vs PC play, players will have the opportunity to influence the movement and actions of the zombies.

My questions are, do we really need another zombie ruleset? and how different is it from what’s already available? Sure, the presentation is nice enough, but it feels like there needs to be a bit more of an emphasis on the miniatures side (sorry to say, the greens preview is a bit meh to be honest guys!)

Still, it looks like it will be a good read with the graphic novel style presentation and pics.

They have a long way to go to the £30,000 total, but it’s still early days. Lets hope this first HDS games’ effort will pathe a way to some new blood in the UK wargaming industry.
