Bugs, Mr. Rico!

Bugs, Mr. Rico!

One hundred of ’em! As Nick Hawkins has noted, rubber cockroaches look surprisingly effective on the table, and are extremely cheap. I finally got around to ordering 100 of them off eBay, I really have no idea what I’ll do with them, maybe 5150 with Nick’s modifications. They just looked too cool not to have.

5150 40k game

November 11, 2010

Coming out of playing an FNG game at Fall-In! and not having anything planned for gaming this week, I threw together a quick 5150 game using 40k figures last night. I found some QRSs online that looked reasonable, and had about 65 Tau infantry of various stripes up against 10 Space Marines. The Marines were all Rep 5. The Tau squad leaders were all Rep 5 and the troopers Rep 4. About halfway through the game, we decided that was too high given the odds I was going for, and dropped everybody on the Tau side by 1. Otherwise, I thought it played well. I thought the table looked pretty good, too. My trees are falling apart, though. I need to figure out what I’m going to do with them…

Just Another Bug Hunt

February 7, 2009

Mik posted pictures and a report of our recent 5150 bug hunt game. I go back and forth over Two Hour Wargames rules– there are some real golden nuggets inside the rules, but they are still annoyingly poorly edited. Still, we had a blast with this game. We didn’t lose a man, but we did decide that prudence was the better part of valour…

Nick’s 5150 SciFi Skirmish

January 22, 2009

Nick’s 5150 SciFi Skirmish is a nice page devoted to 5150. It has some really nice pictures of games in action, as well as a well-developed variant called Roach Wars. I absolutely love the look of the swarm of roaches coming across the table…I’m going to have to get some of my own!

Two Hour Wargames has a free fanzine, Insight. It looks interesting.

5150 Star Wars

October 18, 2006

Here are the 5150 rules for Star Wars I wrote up with input from my buddy Mik. It’s mostly from ANH and ESB as those are the figures I have. I’d love to have any additions you come up with, as I probably won’t stat up anymore than this since this covers most of my figures. After watching Clone Wars, though, I could see myself getting clone trooper and droid forces down the line… Anyway, you can see some pictures here of some playtest games Mik and I played.
