I apologize for the lack of updates. I have been spending the majority of my free time working on Kaiju Rampage (GMR 4th edition).
I am going to be doing things a bit different with this edition of the game. I want to release the game as soon as possible, but I also don't want to rush it. I want to be able to give you a solid game that plays well and that has a rulebook that is easy to read with lots of great artwork. In order to do that I need more playtesters and I need to generate some funds to pay for the artwork, editing, and layout.
In order to achieve both of those things at the same time, I have decided to release a playtest version of the game. The playtest version of the game will be a text only PDF available via Wargame Vault for $3. The money I make off the playtest version will be used to fund the things I mentioned earlier. I also hope that those who are willing to purchase the playtest PDF will also be willing to send in feedback on the game, thus helping to increase the amount of playtest data available to me.
I hope to release the playtest version by the end of this summer. I will likely keep it for sale for about a year or until I feel the game is ready for the next step. Once I reach that step, the game will be removed from Wargame Vault as I start the process of securing art and finding an editor and graphic designer.
The finished game will first be available only in print. I have not decided if I will release a PDF version of the finished book. If I do, it will likely be a few years after I release the print version.
As always, thanks for playing!
I just uploaded two PDF files to the downloads section of the website.
The first is an updated errata file that includes errata that will hopefully correct some issues I noticed with the vehicle rules in Atomic Super Humans Deluxe.
The second file, City Building, is a set of guidelines designed to help you build a balanced playing field.
We are currently making plans to run demos of Giant Monster Rampage at Shatterdome Atlanta. We hope to see you there!
We have updated the print and play files for our prototype board game Giant Monster Rampage: Rage of Monsters.
The prototype files are available at Wargame Vault.
Anyone looking for awesomely unique figures to use in your games of Giant Monster Rampage should check out the Sharktipede kickstarter here!.

At the bottom of this post you will find a PDF containing the Interloper playtest rules for Atomic Super Humans and Giant Monster Rampage.
The interloper rules are designed to give the military and government forces a more threatening presence in your Toy Battle System games by representing those forces as a special type of combatant.
NOTE: The rules presented in the PDF are intended for playtest purposes and should only be used if all players agree.
Here is a picture of two prototype game boards set up to play a game of GMR: Rage of Monsters. (NOTE: Most scenarios use 4 or more boards)
The figures on the board are "super deformed" gashapon figures that measure approximately 1.5" tall.
The blocks are Megabloks mid-sized (one size up from standard building blocks) toddler blocks.
