Future War Commander Sci-Fi Wargaming Part 1

Future War Commander according to the website is "an exciting wargame that allows you to re-create battles of the future using miniatures on a tabletop. Command anything from a company right up to a division and get a result in 2-3 hours without becoming bogged-down in detail. Suitable for any scale miniatures from 2mm right up to 28mm (including 6mm, 10mm, 15mm and 20mm) and no re-basing is required."

Specialist Military Publishing is a UK-based publishing company who design and publish tabletop wargaming rules. Their site is http://www.blitzkrieg-commander.com/

I have already played and enjoyed both Blitzkrieg Commander, and Cold War Commander. In antisapation of playing Future War Commander I has started to paint a 1/300th  (1/285th) Micro Scale Sci-Fi Force.

I won these figures on an EBay Aunction Last year. It would appear that they were unauthorized copies of GEV/Orgre miniatures that are produced by Steve Jackson Games. They are resin reproductions and are not lead miniatures. Please beware.
