Cyberpunk Red the miniatures game.
Announcing: Cyberpunk Red: Combat Zone! An exciting new skirmish miniatures game from Monster Fight Club, set in the Combat Zones of 2045’s cities.
Set several decades after the RPG’s seminal second edition Cyberpunk 2020 and before its recent video game adaptation Cyberpunk 2077.
Combat Zone features a new, fast-paced game engine where the players can act and react in organic, free-flowing actions. No rounds, no turns - the game just goes. As your characters take hits and get wounded, their abilities degrade - so strike hard and strike fast!
Combat Zone leaves the traditional rulers and tape measure behind and introduces a new “Limiter” based movement and range system, where your characters’ attacks and movement depend on the quality of their actions. Green, Yellow, and Red Actions all have different chances to succeed - so choose smartly!
