Hey guys I recently started a 5150 Fighter Command campaign.

I wrote the introduction in a couple of posts which start here:


It's the first time that I'd played 5150 Fighter Command so I figured I'd do a pretty detailed battle report to show how the rules work. I've put it to the blog over a couple of posts with the first one being here:


I hope you find it useful. It was a hell of a lot of fun to play. I especially liked that I mashed up the Starwars and the Battlestar Galactica universes and somehow it all worked ok.

Super cool, thanks for sharing! If you go all in and get the "Carrier Command" supplement, you not only get some rules on electronic warfare and such, but also rules on being a "Space Boss" and managing your fighter squadrons on the carrier.

Thanks guys for the feedback and I'm glad that you liked it.

I agree Hayden. The dogfighting rules really made the game seem like I was watching either Battlestar Galactica or Star Wars much more than any other game that I'd played to date.

SBminisbuy – I've got Carrier Command and used elements of it. It's a pretty decent supplement and in fact it's the campaign system from the supplement that I'm most impressed by. Good fun!!!
