The ugly truth. A 5150 Fighter Command scenario.


  1. Late to the party on this one, but very cool stuff! This would tie in nicely with 5150:Battalion Commander and 5150:Star Army!

    Look forward to seeing more!

  2. Yes, I think it could be easily done. Thank you for your comment :)

  3. Does a demo of the rules exist? I wanna try the game before I purchase it to know If I'll like it. Good blog BTW, love the 6mm and the space stuff! Cheers from a fellow spanish speaker!

    1. Hey Karlos, It's nice to hear from a Spaniard! I'm afraid there is no demo of this ruleset so you have to buy it to know if you like it or not.
      I can tell you the game is great for solo playing either on single encounters or in campaign. The feeling I tried to get (and I think I did) is like the PC Wing Commander, where you and a wingman do many missions on your fighters: convoy run, patrol, strike on capships, etc.
      The game plays great and now we are about to release a supplement with more stuff.

    2. Unfortunately I never got to play Wing Commander, I was too young then and now I'm too lazy to install it on win 7, its a chore. I think Ill try, I really need a solo game.

      Thanks for the info!

    3. Oh forgot to ask. Can you tell me in inches the size of the game board? Or the recommended in the manual? That way I can start thinking on a good mat.

    4. I usually play on 120x120 cm. but it can be bigger or even smaller, depending on the scale of the game.
