War in Space with Star Eagles

My friend Andrea mentioned it in a comment below, and I realised I have completely forgotten to point you in the direction of the Star Eagles Kickstarter by Ganesha Games.
Silly of me.

In the creators’ own words

Star Eagles is a science fiction action game of futuristic space fighter combat using highly detailed 1/285 scale miniature spaceships.

And it looks like a million dollars.
And it is set in a very interesting universe, so that you get not only the Zap! Pow! excitement of the fast-paced battle game, but you can also catch a glimpse of a deep setting, one that is granted to intrigue you.
It certainly intrigues me, so much so that I’m seriously thinking about writing a story set in the Star Eagles universe. I have a soft spot for the Osprey class gunboat…

For full disclosure, you should probably know that I was asked to write some fiction snippets to make sure those glimpses help the players get into the setting, and it was a blast.
But for the time being, check out the Kickstarter, and if you like science fiction and miniature games, be sure to back this project.
