5150 Star Marine - Coming soon!


5150: Star Marine is self-contained game that lets you take on the role of a Star Marine, and lead your characters and soldiers into combat and actions in floating space hulks, airless moons, and planets with an atmosphere so nasty you’ll be dead if your suit is breached.

 You start as a Private in the Star Marines. As your Story evolves, using the Campaign and Mission rules (which generate adventures on the fly for your Star), you will have the chance to get promoted to a higher rank. Your goal is to rise to be one of the top Brass of your Star Faction’s military, bringing glory to your Star Faction along the way. That; and stay alive.


Compatible with all 5150 titles.

  4. Sounds like this may be a nice contrast to Rogue Stars.

    1. Pardon my ignorance. What's Rogue Stars?

    2. A new skirmish game from Osprey and Andrea Sfiligoi. Great game, but not really made for solo play.

    3. Okay, Andreas and I are friends. he has done artwork for me in the past, many years ago before he started his company. First class fellow.

  5. Possibly, hopefully, the closest to Starship Troopers and Alien yet. May I presume BTA is present? I figure I'll still use the Hishen QRS as Heinlein's bugs.

    1. No BTA as this is the Star Marine branch of service. Boarding actions, special missions. BTA needs lots of room to operate and wouldn't do well in the confines of a ship.

      Now the updated BUGS! - that's in the hopper.

  6. I guess I'll be adding another title to my heap of THW books. :)

  7. So...airless and nasty environments...will we see some Low-G and Zero-G combat rules too? Please?

    I have 15mm GZG Moongrunts and Luna to battle to protect the Apollo 11 flag!

  8. So, is this a skirmish or wargame or both? Also you say its compatible with other 5150 games. Is this going to add useful stuff to a Fringe Space or BABL game?

    Sounds great and lovely cover art again.

    1. It's set up for small fights in confined quarters like a spaceship, alley, etc. You can take the info out of it and use it with Chain Reaction and all the 5150 titles.Yes, useful stuff for FS, BABL and other titles.

    2. I'll add it to my wish list :-)
