Today's gaming find brought to you by HPB

Another score from Half-Price Books: Mutants and Death Ray Guns, a post-apocalyptic skirmish game based using the versatile Song of Blades and Heroes game engine from Ganesha Games.  If the fantasy game SoBaH is analogous to Dungeons & Dragons, then MDRG's related to Gamma World
It's got mutants, androids, hi-tech, and, of course ray guns.  It also has a campaign system that can be completed in one setting, since a single battle can be done in about half-an-hour to 45 minutes.  Fun stuff!

I've got these as well and I do enjoy them quite a bit. The one hiccup is the random warband generation, I wish it were a little more in line with the points buying mechanic as in the other SBH games.

I have and play SBH and own "Flying Lead" - still putting forces together for it. Its a really neat system and easy on the wallet. Have fun with it!

@Mik; author has published point-based warband generation rules on the web somewhere - check out official Ganesha page or the Yahoo group.
