To boldly go where no man has gone before......

I said this to a fellow wargamer last week, and he began to shuffle his feet and fidget, it was only when I explained that we were about to play Star Trek Attack Wing did he visibly relax.

A Federation Galaxy class spaceship, under the command of Capt William T Riker approaches an previously unmapped planet close to Cardassian space.

Sensors soon pick up a Galor class cruiser travelling at impulse speed on the opposite side.

I have to say that I have played several games of Star Trek Attack Wing and I love it. It is a brilliantly designed tactical game. The fact that I am a Star Trek fan also helps the love.

After some manoeuvres the Cardassian vessel locked onto Rikers ship and the battle commenced. It became a chase around the planet, with the Cardassians causing some damage to the a Federation vessel and injuring Riker in the process.

It became a bit of a cat and mouse game, the undamaged Cardassian ship against the heavily armed, but damaged and captain-less Galaxy class vessel.

Only Data at the helm seemed to be keeping the Federation ship in one piece, but it was only a matter of time....with Riker injured and in sick bay, the Federation ship was hampered to say the very least.

Soon the Cardassian managed to manoeuvre behind the Galaxy class ship, and despite Data's helmsman ship, she suffered a series of hits which resulted in......

I am a big fan of this here


  1. The Federation don't seem to have much luck! Now who was at the helm of the Federation vessel? Another fun game.

    My opponent - I was the Cardassian commander, although I confess to being a Federation fan :-)

  3. I don't know why, but I have always had an affinity to the Ferengi......

      I think it is because they are the least threatening.......I still vividly remember you recanting the fear you felt when you watched The Original Star Trek episode featuring the 'Tribbles' and how, even now, you cannot bear to have cuddly toys of any type in your home.....keep strong buddy..........

  4. I like a man who is not afraid to show his sensitive side....nothing to be ashamed of SWF

    1. Holly, I am sensitive, I use Nivea when I shave :-)

    2. What do you use to moisturise?

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…
