Well here is a little diversion from my normal Historical Miniatures. They are two 1/1000 scale miniatures from Shapeways. They are of the standard transport Eagle from Moon Base Alpha and the other is a Hawk also from Earth but they were used by an alien race to attack Moon Base Alpha in the show titled War Game!

Yes there is an episode in Season one of Space 1999 where there is space combat. Short and not very exciting space combat but still there is combat. I also found statistics for the speed and weapons that each space craft had as designed by the creators of Space 1999.
|I am so glad the clothing trend of the 1970's is gone!!!|
Now I can remember getting a large toy at Christmas of the Eagle. so now I have scale models that are much smaller but now I have them so I can fight space battles. I have a total of three Hawk's and 4 Transport Eagles that will be the combat Eagles. I also have a number of other Eagles that will be used as transport and lightly armed scouts. So look out Sweden we will be fighting for control of Moon Base Alpha.
Now for the rules. I have a st of space combat rules called Colonial Battle Fleet and they are from the same people who wrote the WW1 Naval Rules we use at the club. The rules allow you to make up your own data cards, which I made earlier this week.
Here are the data cards for both ships.
