Steel Rift


In the near future, in the wake of crippling solar flares, the remnants of humanity fight for resources, order, and sometimes glory.

Steel Rift is a fast paced skirmish game featuring highly configurable mechs called HE-Vs. Played on a 3’ x 3’ table, it’s easy to set up almost anywhere.

The Steel Rift: Core Rulebook is your ticket to the battlefield of the future.

Customize your HE-V loadouts and hit the enemy hard in a fast-paced game of mechanized combat.

Written and developed by the writer of Last Days and Gamma Wolves, Ash Barker puts his passion for both apocalyptic and mech combat games on full display. With expansion to add more HE-V mechs, Campaign Modes, Faction-Building rules, and a variety of new Unit Types already in the works, you’ll have even more Steel Rift models, lore and rules to look forward to.

The Security Team bonus table is out of date, the Light HE-Vs column should read All HE-Vs.

Learning everything right now, but I'm a little confused about arc facing. The rule book seems to gloss over how to figure them out. Do we just divide the base into four 90 degree pie cuts: front, left, right, rear, and extend the arc corners out to infinity to see if an attack is happening in a certain pie slice?

If this is correct, I've also seen the official minis with built in arc markers mounted two different ways. One has arc markers sitting diagonal at the border where each 90 degree pie slice ends, showing the four facing arcs. I've also seen them with the markers facing front, back, left, right, where they're used with a little arc gauge that comes with the starter box. Isn't using this arc gauge redundant because if you mount the bases with markers diagonally, the arcs gauges are the bases themselves?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
