For those of you who live in the UK (and are enjoying this lovely weather).

We are currently developing the Warpath mass battle and Warpath Firefight gaming systems and we need your help to make sure that they are the best that they can be – that means balanced, fair but most of all fun!

We are looking for volunteers to help us playtest the rules and the force lists. If you want to have your input into the game and help us make a great science fiction battle game, please come and help us develop the system.

We’ll be running two Events. The Warpath Mass Battle Playtest day will run on Saturday 11th June and the Warpath Firefight Playtest day will run on Saturday 18th June.


What will happen on the day?

The day will consist of:

  • A short briefing
  • Gaming!
  • Feedback sessions
  • Lunch
  • More gaming
  • More feedback sessions


What you will need to bring

We’ll provide boards and terrain, but we need you to bring about 3,000 points of miniatures (using the army lists from the latest beta)

These can be any suitable proxy miniatures, they do not need to be Deadzone figures or Warpath miniatures – if you have a GW space marine army, feel free to bring that. This is about playtesting the rules, so please bring whatever you have!


It would also be useful for you to bring two 2,000 point Force Lists based on the beta: one that you consider to be horrible and broken, the other varied and balanced. Please have them ready so we can start promptly in the morning.

Please email before the 31st May if you would like to attend and what army you intend on playing.
