I would be interested, as I'm looking something to Kick-Start
my 15mm Sci-Fi. which would be squad based.
I would keep my much loved Galactic Heroes for 28mm skirmish.

Just had a look at this on the latest Osprey newsletter, and noticed its £25, so twice the price of blue book rule sets. Any thoughts on what the extra page count will provide?

Amazon is showing it as hardback and 192 pages long, so it's more like Scrappers than the blue books (Scrappers is 148 pages and £19.99).

I'm guessing background fluff, army lists and loads of pictures will bulk it out.

Despite focusing on small skirmish collecting, I do have a lot of unpainted plastic in the pile that would let me bring quite a few of my races up to platoon level. I also found a bunch more painted Pig Iron troopers this morning, so there's that.

Arghh - too many projects  o_o

You can NEVER have too many projects.
1) It gives me credible excuses for not completing anything.
2) My Butterfly mind is kept happy.
3) More shiney things can justifiably be purchased.
4) Going to shows is allowed.

I too am looking forward to this book. Lion Rampant 2e is fantastic and am looking forward to the next book in the series.
I've already got 1/72 post apoc minis I was thinking about gaming this with, but am seriously considering tracking down some Gates of Antares...

I have a few Algoryns, so I've just picked up the Army starter set from Warlord to bulk them out. It does, however, make me wish I hadn't gone for an orange and red colour scheme on the ones I painted, as the orange took several coats to cover :(

Warlord has dropped Battle for Antares, but most stuff still seems to be there if you search for it. Some of it is made to order, but, hey, the rules aren't out until late next month anyway, so there's no rush ;D

Thanks to youse guys, I just ordered a batch of the 15mm mid-tech heavy armor figs from Khurasan.  As an elite infantry force, i can get away with just a dozen or so figures.  That gives me a full force for less than twenty bucks.  Should be a snap to paint, too.

Gonna be interesting to see how they play.  With only three maneuver elements, it is going depend heavily on thr scenarios.

Yes, waiting to see what North Star will offer in the next newsletter - I think it is a Merc sprue.

There was a demo/beta version out before right?

Can anyone who has played it, let me know how it compares to One Page Rules Grimdark Future?  I love Dragon Rampant so I'd be a prime target for Xenos, but I'm enjoying the heck out of Grimdark Future and it'd have to be pretty good to lure me away.

Check the latest North Star newsletter. There's a £5 off if you spend £25 Halloween voucher. The book and a Stargrave Troopers sprue are currently £22, so all you need to do is find something for £3 or more to qualify.

There are also army packs (Rebels, Imperial and Cultist) using the StarGrave sprues and figures (interesting use of Ghost Archipelago sailors - a good source of ruffians).
