Default Skirmish Wargames?

My friends and I have been trying to find a good skirmishing mini wargame for some time now. We just want a game we can play when we don't feel up to big 40k battles that can take 4 hours. I know we could play 40k at low point levels, but we're of the opinion that the game doesn't function as well at that level.

We liked the look of AT-43, but everyone likes Therians and dislikes the other factions, so that would get boring fast.

So does anyone have any game suggestions?

Have you tried Killteam? Low point values with 40k, yes, but the changes in rules change it up a good deal.

I was looking at two games that caught my interest, Confrontation: Age of Ragnarok and Mutant Chronicles (I'm not sure if the second is even released yet) has anyone played either of these?

AEG is putting out a boardgame version of their very awesome card game: Legend of the 5 Rings. It's set in Rokugan and all of the pieces are samurai, shugenja, monks and whatnot.


It looks like a mix of risk and a cardgame. Their are 6(i believe) of the clans playable in it. Each of them has slightly different units and a set amount of "strategy cards" that represents the vastly different clans. You don't have to collect the cards or anything, as they are set or i think you can play without them.

It's not due till September or so and it's not quite skirmish looking, but it's probably worlds simpler than 40k.

I play L5R and I had no idea of such a thing coming out, even if it's not what I'm looking for, thanks! :P

Who knew that I would find another L5R player out here in the dark future.

But yeah I'm really stoked for the game, though a lot of players are pissed because scorpion, mantis and spider will not be playable unless you buy the expansions that come out later.

And i only say a lot of players because scorpion is arguably the most popular faction in the game.

My life and soul on the other hand, are for the phoenix.

Right on. If you aren't already over there check out shrine of the moon and sun, the official phoenix forums.
