Blue Moon Manufacturing 15mm Sci-Fi — Review

As we have noted in our annual Best Games Not Yet Published, Critical Mass Games, Ground Zero Games, Rebel Minis and Khurasan Miniatures have all been producing some outstanding 15mm sci-fi miniatures over the past few years. With the new release of the Galactic War 1 15mm sci-fi miniature rules by Blue Moon Manufacturing we became aware of yet another 15mm manufacturer. We decided to take a look at the new rules as well as some of the miniatures.

Tanker's Tuesday: SOLDIERS: Part 6. Tanks



Soldiers. The story of men in battle. A BBC TV series from 1985 in eight parts, introduced by Frederick Forsyth. Rather dated now as a few wars have been fought since, but should be of some interest all the same to the professional soldier, of any age or nationality.
