Default OT: Tabletop!

Well, I don't know if anyone here is into tabletop wargaming, but this sort of fits the Space Empires theme. I ran across this up and comming game on the net and thought you guys might like to take a look.

They look like Tau ships.

I once came across a starship game which was scientifically acurate. It used physics to determine all the rolls, and it was 3d in that it had wooden blocks for raising the ships and holding them at angles.

Believe it or not, there was once a board game called "Space Empires"...

StarFire is the original table top game that Space Empires was inspired by, but both games have taken different paths from the first version.

It's currently in version 4?
StarFire

Starfire rocks. I wish there were people around here who played it.
