I like this if it's written well, and imaginitive, and I have been
seeing a lot of well done ideas here, including the Tuffleyverse.

Yes, I game here a lot, including Hammers Slammers, Traveller and
2300, to name a few (Kravak make great Kafers). I also do
post-apoclayptic Cold War moderns in 20mm (aka Twilight 2000 related).

Not real nuts about this kind of gaming, for the most part though I do
do 15mm Stargate (my version, with Army Rangers and Delta coming out
to play) and Terminator in 15mm.
