I totally agree with you.  I was reading the comics again on the weekend, and those Rabbits are just damn evil.

What are you expecting from the miniatures version of the game that will keep the ‘feeling’?

We were just discussing this in the design team and we each have our own ideas.

But honestly, yours are surely  just as good...  tell me why you were drawn to Albedo in the first place, and what is it you like about the comics and game...

As posted on FB a couple of times, I really want to hear about your favourite Albedo characters - if you played the RPG.

I’m trying to incorporate them into the source book as far as possible - for posterity - so bring it on...

Name, Species, Organisation and a brief description about what makes them great and their signature moves...

Hi Prollo and welcome!

There will be a ‘starter set of rules’ available as soon as the miniatures go on sale.  These will be used for playtesting - they’re still in draft at this stage, and your feedback will be most welcome.

@Geo Vaughan - there’s a ‘hero’ function within the main rules, that we’re using to allow PC toons to be involved.  In a campaign setting, there’s no reason why experience could not be taken into account.  I have a plan for that, too, but you’ll need to wait and see on that one.

Just so we’re clear, ACP164 is a miniature war game, not an RPG.

However, I’m really keen to include ways to make it work with whichever version of the RPG you happen to prefer.  In the next few days, we’ll be posting up the introductory rules section... I look forward to seeing what we can do!

Welcome to the forum!

I’ve also been running the tabletop RPG for a few years, using the 2nd edition rules, and the lack of miniatures was bugging me.

So here we are!  I’d love to hear about your campaign, if you want to share, and I’m also looking at ways to make Rpg characters viable in the ACP system.

Hi again,

   This is a note about intellectual property, and what it means to us, and by extension to you, the forum user.

We make sections of the rules and sourcebook material freely available for download so that you can play the game.  But they still belong to us.  That means you can’t reuse any part of them without the express written permission of the owners.

By the same token, you can’t take content and pass it off as your own work.  You can use sections if quoted and attributed properly, and we’ll be happy to talk about other arrangements if required.

We want to use these forums, and later, a wiki, to spark creativity and make the game better for all of us.  If there’s an idea that we like and would like to incorporate into a game release, we’ll ask first, by PM in this forum.

If you want to ask questions about this, please do so, either in response to this thread or by email to

Hi there,

  If you’re reading this, you’re interested in the game of Albedo Combat Patrol.

Good news!  You’re in the right place!

To maximise your enjoyment of the forums, please observe the following guidelines.

1. Don’t be horrible to other people.  This is a game discussion forum, not Facebook or Twitter, and we don’t have to put up with it.
2. Don’t post anything here that you’d be embarrassed for kids, your wife or your granny to see.
3. You can post freely in the general discussion forum, as long as it fits within the scope of rules 1 & 2.
4. We’d love you to ask questions and join in discussions within the other parts of the forum, and we’ll use your suggestions and feedback to make the game better.  But please stay on point for that forum - if it’s the rules discussion, post about the rules.

If you don’t feel able to stay within these guidelines, one of our staff will give you a warning.  All our staff members have ACP_ in front of their name, so you’ll know that they are official.  The first warning will be a private one.

The second warning will be a note that you’ve been suspended from the forum for a week or so, at the admin’s discretion.

The third strike will be a forum ban.

We don’t ever want it to come to that, but we know that the nature of the internet is that people say things that they probably wouldn’t say in the pub or at church.  So we want this to be a corner of the internet that you treat with the same respect.

Thanks for reading!

   If you got this far, you probably are interested in the new game of Albedo Combat Patrol [ACP).  Good news!  Your journey is over.  This is the place.

Better news!  The journey is about to begin! 

We don’t want ACP to be a static game.  Instead, we’d like to see it continuing to evolve and expand, with your involvement.  This is one of the places we’ll do that.

Stay tuned to find out more!

Mike, for the ACP team.
