A New Blog is Born
When Andy Chambers stopped working for Games Workshop he went and wrote a particularly cool wargame based on the film, computer animated TV show and novel of Starship Troopers.
For a while they brought out a flurry of above average supplements and miniatures (and a few dodgy ones), and then the whole thing got cancelled.
Then I went a bit crazy on eBay and bought up as much of it as I could before it disappeared forever.
It's something I do VERY sporadically and probably months will pass between posts here on Starship Troopers R Us, but I was feeling a bit inspired and I wanted to set it up to remind me to dust off the miniatures and play some games. AND finish painting the enormous pile of bugs I have in the attic.
This blog isn't going to be like my others. There probably won't be any detailed battle reports here. But there will be some nice pictures from time to time and maybe a little commentary.
The picture above is a squad of Light Armour Troopers disembarking from their Skyhook Retrieval Boat. When the game came out they initially focused on Power Armour Troopers but these are the classic guys from the films.
