Hi everyone. Bit of an introduction first before the shameless plug for my new blog.

I've been a gamer, at least in theory, for just over 25 years but I've lapsed a bit over the past 15 years due to work, family and all the usual things real life throws at you. I may not have been active but I've kept an interest.

This year is hopefully the year I get back into gaming. To help motivate me I've started a blog, focusing on 15mm Sci-Fi and Fantasy solo gaming though I do tend to wander into other scales and periods from time to time.

You can view it at sologamer.co.uk if it interests you.

Cheers
Thomas

Cool.
All the best, keep us updated.

Although I started with 6mm tanks my heart belongs to sci-fi.


6mm sci-fi not an option?

Michael,

Never say never! I have LOADS of 6mm Sci-Fi I bought in the late 90's sitting in storage. One idea I have had is using Tomorrows War for 6mm and 5150 for 15mm.

I've been following your posts on here, great work.

A few people talk about Traveller and Tomorrows War in 6mm.
I have a feeling I am missing out on something…

Michael,

I haven't had a chance to give it a go yet but Tomorrows War looks very promising. There are plenty of AARs both in the TMP forums and on the Web. The official forum is also a good read.

It's not that expensive, you can pick up a copy straight from the publisher as a PDF for $25 USD (about £15.00 GBP in our money) or you can get the hardback from Amazon for 16GBP‌.

I plan to do a review of it at some point.

Cool! Thanks for the heads up!

I managed to get a copy of TW given and it is a very nice set of rules, i would recommend the hard back version mainly because the art work and layout do justify having a 'proper' book not just a PDF or printed copy.
Nice blog (early days i know)

Great start! Looking forward to developments.

Very nice, keep updating the progress please.

Solo gaming is fun; 5150 and TW are great sets of rules, and 15mm and 6mm is where its at.

So I'll definitely keep an eye on this blog!
