O.R.B.I.T. Link is a rules-light SciFi miniatures skirmish game. Players battle against one another with teams of infantry and mechanized units, struggling to regain control of their ancestral homeworlds.

Success in the game relies heavily on the use of your O.R.B.I.T. units, large robotic support platforms that act as backbone of your assault force. When placed carefully an O.R.B.I.T. can help infantry rapidly redeploy and seize high-value targets.

The game is in "early access" while I rethink themeing and refine the mechanics. If I see an uptick in interest I'll further revisit the game with updated art and polishing!

28mm Scale: I used miniatures ranging from 25-40mm in scale for Infantry units, and 1:144 Gundam models for the O.R.B.I.T. units but action figures or large Transformers would also work well!

Basing:  I recommend ~75mm base for the O.R.B.I.T. but any size will work as long as it is consistent across the match. 

Playing in 15mm or Smaller: To scale the game down for 15mm or smaller I would recommend replacing all use of inches with centimeters. Adjust the playing surface size proportionally. 15mm infantry partnered with a 28mm scale mech or vehicle has a very nice visual sizing if you wish to pull from multiple areas of your miniature collection.
