Not more Star Trek Attack Wing

Last night The Secret Wargamers Secret Wargaming Friend came over to give Star Trek Attack Wing a try. He had enviously watched the blog describe the previous battles.....

The first game saw the Federation face off against The Romulans.

The USS Enterprise found itself under the command of William T Riker whilst Jean Luc Picard was at a symposium at a near by planet.

She was investigating a sensor anomaly when she discovered the Romulan warbird.

My Secret Wargaming friend was getting to grips with concept and rules and found himself flying a more defensive ship than perhaps suited his wargaming style.

Unbelievably SWF only got to fire once, whilst he found himself under constant fire from the Enterprise, only his cloaking device and sensor echo's helping him avoid serious damage.

The game turned into a bit of a chase, with the Romulan trying to get into position for a shot, but found themselves constantly outmanoeuvred by Riker.

SWF thought that the Warbird was a great defensive vessel, but felt hampered by her lack of 360 firing arc.

Numerous phaser attacks missed their target, but it was only a matter of time. Early on in the encounter the Warbird had suffered two points of damage.

Another barrage of photon torpedoes brought the Romulan Warbird to its knees and seriously wounded her captain.

The Romulans then found themselves in a Federation minefield and were forced to surrender as the Enterprise closed in for the kill.

A second game followed, and SWF found the Klingons more to his favour.

This was a far more aggressive encounter, the Klingon vessel clearly more suited to attack. By this time, Jean Luc had returned to his ship.

Both vessels sustained heavy damage, but the Klingon vessel exploded after a pinpoint broadside from the Enterprise.

A good evening and a great little game.


  1. So a two nil defeat for SWF! It's like watching an England game!

  2. I didn't realise that I could shoot back with my Romulan Warbird, I just thought it was a game of tag!

Not tonight Josephine - 28mm Napoleonic skirmish game

My Secret Wargaming friend has been busy, he has painted some figures, scratch built some buildings, and asked for others for his birthday. He has started his Napoleonic armies, something he promised he would never do, because he didn't know where it would end...................... A French sentry guards the prize - a command wagon full of secrets

For a while, my secret wargaming friend has been patiently working on this project, and it has been well worth the wait. Tonight he put on a great skirmish game. I was the British commander (represented on tabletop by a suitably dashing command figure), SWF - the French, and he too was represented by a command figure (who's tunic was a little too tight around his belly).

I had strict orders to reconnoiter a nearby town, and bring back captured supplies if possible. I had 13 men for the task, and had to cross a river to get into the town.

The British approach was from the bottom left of the picture then on toward the bridge

There was anot…

Red v Blue - Modern Spearhead rules and micro armour

A brief account of a command post exercise........ Me and a secret wargaming friend ran another walkthrough of these rules. This time we added helicopters, aircraft and artillery.The reader must bear in mind that we are just starting out in this scale, and with the rules. I have no 6mm trees or terrain, therefore, the pics will not be pretty.....Some of the models are also in a state of disrepair - I picked up a hodgepodge of second hand stuff some years ago, and they require basing and some need a little tidying up. This was a field training exercise, designed to put Brigade staff (me and my mate) through their paces and familiarise them with the concept of modern warfare. I took command of the red forces, which were simulating Russian units, my secret wargaming friend took charge of blue, and had a British battlegroup to command.In summary, red force was made up of three T72 tank battalions, a Motor Rifle battalion in BMP's, supported by a 122mm self propelled artillery battery, a…

Dreadnoughts Rising -World War One naval wargame (dry run)

In preparation for the final game in our World War One trilogy, I took a set of computer moderated rules called DREADNOUGHT RISING for a spin. Click here for a reviewNow I started naval wargaming in the early 1990's after buying a starter set from Skytrex. I got four World War 1 Battlecruisers and a set of basic rules, and eventually me and two friends started wargaming, we got some 15mm WW1 figures and ran a couple of mini campaigns. The only problem was the rules were hideous, and we never got to finish a game.

I recall moving my naval ships in millimetres and rolling dice a bazillion times to score and record a hit.

We loved it, but were held back by the rules. Dreadnoughts Rising solves it do her sister rules for WW2 - Battleships Zenith.

Now all I need are some computer moderated rules for my 1:3000th modern ships.....I digress, here is a summary of the test battle. The one we will play for the deciding game of the trilogy will be a little larger.I had two Battles…
