After lots of suggestions from my fans, I’m pleased to announce a brand new game, and it’s going to be completely free for the readers of my books. The books will be free to download at Amazon, and all other retailers, while the models will be free to print on your own 3D printer. I will also ensure that you can order them ready printed if you lack your own printer.

Using the backstory, history and artwork from Star Legions, I am creating a high-quality table top spaceship battle game. The game uses large scale miniatures, with battleships reaching an impressive 8 inches in length. There will be cruisers, frigates and other classes as the system develops.

Please stop by and visit the official Facebook page, say hi and post your thoughts on the new project. I will consider all your suggestions, and the crazier the better!

Here is the first ship model is heading for the printer. A Terran battleship designed to be printed in two halves. This is quite a beast, and is based on a modular design at 215.55mm in length (8.5″ in old money). Approximate print cost at home is around $6.00/£4.50.


I need help to make this game, and what better way than to join my developer’s group. This is a dedicated place for us to chat and test the game rules well before they are released. If you’ve ever wanted to make a game yourself then this is the perfect place for you. Anybody that helps will be credited in the books and the game itself!
