Just had the rules through for 'A Billion Suns' - reading through slowly, but really enjoying so far.
Wondering who else would be interested in this when we get back to more normal in the coming months.

Grahame

After the meeting on Monday I have ordered the rules - I like the idea of jumping from one table to another!

Brilliant! I got one of my orders through, for an exploding planet! Not too sure how to add images on here though, as on my phone.

The latest addition to the Osprey "blue book" series. It's a starship combat game from the same guy who brought us Gaslands.

PS although I like the idea of jumping between tables I would like to reassure everyone I won't be dancing on any.

James Batchelor

Grahame,

What's the space station made from?

Grahame

Scratch built from two yogurt pots stuck together with added rawlplug ships and nail & washer antenna. Proper Blue Peter construction job! Black spray paint with gold detailing. Took 10 mins to find the stuff and 20 mins to assemble. I used a dremmel drill to make holes in the plastic pots and evostik  to stick it all together. Allowing for drying time for paint and glue it was done in a couple of hours.

Fantastic - this is what I love about our hobby !!

James Batchelor

James,
You are a bad man and must be stopped (eventually, in a year or two). I've got my copy of the rules too, intend to use my Star Wars Armada fleet.

I look forward to competing with you in achieving said contracts!

I also look forward to the "war" contracts which promotes a bit more of a fight scenario.
