—description from the publisher
TACTIX is a generic system that supports two or more players using any type of forces, from historical to science-fantasy. A simple procedure is used to assign individual models several ratings, including Assault, Shoot, and Quality. Models' size is determined by the physical base size of the figure, and is divided into seven categories (each category other than Normal has an assigned Trait). A relatively simple method is then used to calculate the model's cost in points, and players take (roughly) the same number of base points for their army.
Play proceeds in turns, round-robin style. Games have a pre-determined length and end when the time is reached (or when all but one player concedes). Games have pre-determined objectives with associated points; alternately, victory can be determined by remaining model points. During their turn, players have several options available for each model, depending on the model's individual Trait(s).
The game is distributed as a rule book only. Models used during play can be derived from nearly any source, as desired, and may be of almost any scale, though 32mm through 400mm bases would by typical.
