I've started collecting Reaper Miniatures 10mm line of minis for their game C.A.V. It's a mechs game, but with lots of infantry and vehicles -- all of which I find to be very good proxies for SFM unit ...

The very things that put some people off of SFB are beginning to attract me: the minutiae, the immense detail, the subtle interactions that can have all kind of unforeseen tactical effects....

I haven't played a lot of FedCom, but I think the huge shift between the two is in planning and resource allocation.

A whole lot can happen in 32 individual impulses, and it can be excruciating to ...

Dale McKee's "Return of the Hood" in CL25 is one of my favorite pieces of fiction. Never played the scenario though.

No, the breadth and depth of the Captain's edition is central to the appeal of the game for me. I love the long, rich history of ship development and functional diversity, with all the fiddly rules to ...

Resurrecting this thread to suggest that the Reaper 10 mm C.A.V. line seems ideal for SFM. I picked up a bunch of these on ebay last summer, and backed their recent Kickstarter.

Although CAV is p ...

I'm not in the UK, but I would say, yes. Definitely worth getting into.

This is a game system with nearly 40-year-old roots, and it's not going anywhere. The rules are stable and very solid. There ...

I have a bunch of GHQ and Langton 1:1200 wooden ship minis that I have collected over the years. I haven't done any in a while, but besides the Starline minis, those would be my next choice.

Maybe I'm using crappy brushes, but I seem unable to create that kind of detail.

Would Mike consider adding email addresses to the display?

Having a quicker means of contact than just a snail mail address might encourage other players to add their info.

For the record, I'm ...
