ArmorTech is a primitive game based loosely on the DragonStrike fantasy game and inspired by the BattleTech universe. ArmorTech provides a game setting in which small arms combat can take place between infantry and Battle Armor individuals. The only real requirements for this game are an imagination and enough creativity to modify the game to fit your needs.

Getting Started... The first thing you need to find is a game board. The Strikers gamers use a simple piece of black cardboard. The size can vary greatly, as long as its a size similar to that of a Classic BattleTech map. The next step is to create a measuring system for this game board. One way to do this is placing stickers or drawing on the cardboard to roughly show the area of a single gamepiece. A single sticker showing this area is shown below as an o. This o area is referred to as a Circle in the game instructions.

The gameboard is now ready for a primitive battle. The empty board above represents open space. However for more interesting combat, walls can be added to create a building scenario. Below is an example of two simple rooms. The one on the right contains a small door. Walls are placed between Circles. Walls block line of sight, but can be destroyed with a damage amount agreed on by the gamers.

The next step is finding gamepieces. Gamepieces can be as simple or complex as you want. The Strikers gamers use a combination of Elemental minatures from Iron Wind's BattleTech line and some other generic soldier miniatures from lines such as CAV or Warhammer. Pictures of these example miniatures can be found on the ArmorTech main page.
