I had a game of Stars & Lasers at the club Monday night and it was great fun.

We played a simple scenario of a fight over mining rights of an asteroid field.

Two fleets met and decided to negotiate with their ships weapons!!!

I have put up a battle report on my site, pop over and have a read.

Since your battlefield is so "Rocky" I think one of the ships or asteroids should be named Adrian. wink

Nicely painted minis.

Lonely Gamer,
Who makes these Mini's? The ones both you and your buddy used. They look great. Great paint job. Asteroids, are they homemade?

Are the two ships in the bottom picture right side modified Firestorm Armada RSN ships?

@Bashytubits lol thanks I will add that to my list of ship names! 😉

@Stryderg thanks.

@BobTYW The dark grimy / boxy ones I designed, they are a Human UEF fleet ( you can see them on my site ) and the fancy gold ones are old Firestorm Armada Ba'Kash ships.
And the asteroids are real rocks from space!!! ok maybe not, they are pieces of red bricks I smashed up with a hammer and shaped… and then just gave them a quick coat of Army Painter dark tone wash.

@billclo I believe they are Firestorm Armada Ba'Kash ships.

Dopey moi! I'd hoped they were scratch builds, but realized they were STL's available, quite reasonably, on WargameVault.

Alas, if only I'd break down and try to use a printer.

I mean, the skinnies have a very Starship Troopers Rodger Young vibe to me, and I LIKE that!

And just the other day I was looking at the print of your solo variant telling myself 'I really need to get my download of the main rules on paper…'

@TheBeast Scratch builds!! no chance, my modelling skills wouldn't be good enough to scratch build spaceships.

If you get my rules printed and play them, let me know what you think.

Pop over to my Discord Server Little Wargaming worlds – and let me know how you get on.
There is a link to my server on my site under the Community tab.
