About All Quiet on the Martian Front

All Quiet on the Martian Front is a 15mm miniatures game that continues the narrative of H.G. Wells, “War of the Worlds”.

The Martian attack of 1898 brought terrible devastation to the city of London and set the course of human history upon an altogether unexpected path. Amongst the ruins of the greatest metropolis on Earth, the Martians had – in the end – faltered and perished. Everyone now knows that these invaders were overcome, not by the might of Queen Victoria’s armies, but by nature’s own forces of disease and decay. Against these mere microbes, the Martians’ superior minds could muster no defense. Where mankind had failed, the smallest and least significant of all Earth’s organisms had triumphed.

Although the Martian invasion shocked the world and caused widespread panic in the days that followed, by the early years of the twentieth century, many influential thinkers were eager to proclaim the aliens a spent force. Fear of further alien attack was gradually displaced by the humdrum concerns of life and commerce. It is sobering to reflect that most people were happy to accept this misguided notion, as we now know it to have been. All over the world, only a few visionaries continued to warn that the first attack might have been a scouting foray, the precursor to a full-scale invasion. They urged humanity to ready itself for war or risk extermination. These men were openly ridiculed and all too often dismissed as alarmists and cranks.

Few even noticed the arrival of the second wave of Martian cylinders that fell to earth sometime around the end of 1908. By the time the Martian presence came to the attention of the governments of Earth, it was already too late.

All Quiet on the Martian Front has 3 distinct factions that player’s can explore:

  • US Army
  • British Expeditionary Force
  • Martian Invaders

All Quiet on the Martian Front has hobby miniatures that require assembly and can be painted. We offer many accessories and terrain that further enhance the game and can be used for custom scenarios and other games.

All Quiet On The Martian Front

All Quiet On The Martian Front

All Quiet On The Martian Front

As told in The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells, the first Martian invasion had failed.  The world was saved when the Invaders had fallen to Earth’s tiniest defenders.

Now years later invaders from the Red Planet have returned.  Bolstered with knowledge of Earth’s environment, Martians have once again brought death to the people of Earth.   This time humanity is better prepared…but is it enough?  This is the premise of the Return of the War of the Worlds stories and games setting.

Abby Normal Publishing purchased the miniatures war game, All Quiet on The Martian Front, as the first step in telling the story of what comes after the events in book The War of the Worlds, known as Return of the War of the Worlds.

In the miniatures war game All Quiet on the Martian Front, set in the Return of the War of the Worlds universe, players pit the mighty tripods and other war-machines of Mars against the valiant defenders of Earth.

The All Quiet on the Martian Front core rules were designed by award winning veteran game designers Alessio Cavatore and Rick Priestley, famous for creating wide diversity of games, including Bolt Action and Warhammer. All Quiet on the Martian Front is a fast, fun game easy to learn but ‘crunchy’ enough for veteran wargamers.

Conjecture of what happened next dates back to almost immediately after the 1897 serialization release of War of the World. The retelling and continuing the War of the Worlds story began as early as 1898 with Fighters from Mars and Edison’s Conquest of Mars respectively. Since then there have been a multitude of radio shows, films, games, comics, and books retelling or continuing the War of the Worlds story.

HG Wells is one of the ‘founders of science fiction’ and as the man credited for creating the war gaming hobby with his game Little Wars: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys’ games and books (yes, the whole long thing is the real title of the game).

As such, we feel using games (and in particular a miniatures war game) as our initial medium for telling stories based on War of the Worlds especially apropos.

Abby Normal Publishing breaks new ground through study of The War of the Worlds as canon, studious application historical logic as to how such events would have affected the world, and inventiveness while simultaneously launching a series of games allowing players to actively engage and interact with this amazing science fiction universe.
