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.
Announcing the Giant Monster Rampage: Rage of Monsters print and play boardgame prototype.
Giant Monster Rampage: Rage of Monsters is a kaiju boardgame I have been working on for the past year and it is the reason I haven't been very active here or on the Radioactive Press newsgroup during that time.
The game was almost a licensed product, but that fell through "for now". I am hoping, by releasing the prototype, that I can "fine tune" the game and hopefully get it into the hands of a publisher who can help me bring it to market.
The game focuses on combat between monsters, but includes elements common to many kaiju movies such as anti-kaiju vehicles and crowds of fleeing citizens.
I plan on expanding the game with new rules and monsters if there is enough interest in the game.

We will be running demos of our Toy Battle System games at this year's Dragoncon. Our demos are designed to teach players how to play the game as well as showcase how versatile the system is. The Dragoncon demos will be run with figures from Bandai's Power Rangers line of toys. You can find our schedule for the weekend, under the title "It's Morphin Time", here: schedule.
If you are going to be at Dragoncon stop by and play in one of our demos!
We have just added the building facade PDF to the downloads section of our website.
The folder contains a single sheet of building facades, in multiple colors, that can be printed out on sticker paper and applied to the First Builders line of plastic building blocks from Mega Bloks. These facades can only be used with the standard sized blocks and will not work with the half sized blocks.
The Toy Battle System Rules Digest is now available at Wargame Vault!
It is time for our final look inside the upcoming Toy Battle System Rules Digest. This week we will be taking a look at the wildlife and miscellaneous rules.
The wildlife rules were designed to allow players to populate the playing field with people or creatures that could pose a potential threat or just get in the way. The wildlife rules allow you to add a lot of flavor and a little bit of danger to the game and work really great when playing solo scenarios. The wildlife rules can also be used to play scenarios that might not normally come to mind, such as populating you playing field with zombies and having each player create a survivor character instead of a giant monster or super human.
The miscellaneous rules section of the book is filled with several minor optional rules designed to give you even more options with character and monster creation as well as ways to enhance your playing field. In the miscellaneous section you can find alternate rules for determining a combatant’s reach based on the size of its figure, how to create alternate close combat or natural attacks, altitude and depth levels. There are even rules for making the instinct statistic optional as well as how to play unclassified combatants.
We hope you have enjoyed these overview articles and agree that this rules digest is a must have for any Toy Battle System player! The PDF version of the Toy Battle System Rules Digest is set to be released the first week of August at Wargame Vault, with a print edition to follow in a few weeks.
