Broken Axles: Complete Rulebook

Broken Axles: Complete Rulebook

Broken Axles is a 15mm vehicle combat game (which can easily be utilized at any scale from 15mm to 28mm) that is fast and fun, where every dice roll has the potential to range from disaster to triumph. To move their vehicles, players will roll a number of Maneuver Dice, with each success converting into an action.

Rolling below the required result, however, causes a Mishap, which vary in intensity depending on the number of failures rolled. Will you play it safe and roll only one dice to shimmy into position? Or will you throw caution to the wind and roll all four dice provided by your growling V8 engine, and risk catching fire or blowing a gasket if you roll poorly? The same risk is attached to most dice rolls in the game.

Broken Axles is built on a rolling terrain system, where every vehicle on the table is assumed to be travelling at 40mph when stationary. As such, terrain often comes barreling through from one end of the table, and if you’ve positioned your vehicles poorly they may not have time to react, and as any seasoned road-veteran will tell you, driving into a rocky bluff is not considered a great idea.

With a host of ramshackle upgrades and sci-fi themed weapons like Microwave Lasers and Arc Casters, and a roster of vehicles from agile Pursuit Vehicles to immense Battle Rigs, Broken Axles ensures that each Warlord has a plethora of options with which to crush his opponents (or to accidentally blow himself up with!).
