So the proofs have come in, and as promised a much more affordable version of this deck is now available at DriveThruCards! The base price is now a mere $14 (plus shipping), so is a much more reasonable option – especially for anyone based in the Americas. You can find the product page here:- https://www.drivethrucards.com/product/360899/Solo-SciFi-Sidekick
Now that I’ve received my deck and given them a thorough look, I can give you a fair comparison between these and the pricier boxed version available from PrinterStudio.
Before I go into more detail, let me say that it is a fine product, entirely legible and completely fit for purpose – you can happily have these at your side whilst playing through your latest adventure
Read on for a comparison between DriveThruCards and the PrinterStudio decks…

As previously mentioned, this is an expensive way to get a single deck – but it is the printer I have used for my proof copies, as seen in all promotional images here and used in my Odysee videos… As such I can vouch for the quality of both the deck and the tuck-box.

Unfortunately, the kickstarter for Solo Sci-Fi Sidekick failed… Given that it is a niche product in a niche segment of a niche hobby, I’m not entirely surprised – especially given my complete lack of marketing skills, and near hatred for social media.
But this setback is not the end of the story, and I have new plans to get my creation into the hands of gamers…

I’ve started to design as much 15mm sci-fi scenery/terrain as I can before summer, with the hopes of having a sprawling mess of a gaming table for when I can get a proper group together for a while.
First up was a simple barricade, as pictured above – 4 or 5 of these can really help filter movement on the table! All files available from Thingiverse, as per usual – I’ll update this post if I can get better photos after painting.
Recently I have been looking for board games to play solo, as I don’t always have other players around. Whilst trawling BoardGameGeek lists, I came across Deep Space D-6
And I think it is awesome! It was an entry in their annual Solitaire Print&Play competition, so I grabbed the files, printed out a set and got playing.

As mentioned previously, I was working on some United States Colonial Marines, for a skirmish level AvP set. Well, I finished them months ago, but never got around to posting. So here they are!
Prepping for just another bug hunt

Finished up my predators the other day (one in stealth mode). I went too heavy with too dark a wash, took forever to bring any life back to this mini.
My 15mm AvP skirmish set is nearing completion though! The Marines are well underway, including an APC converted from a 99p shop toy firetruck. I just wish I’d taken some in progress pics, ah well.
So, I finished painting up my sci-fi motorbike cops. They didn’t come out great – I tried OSL and failed, and my concrete bases look a bit pants, but I’ve had enough of these guys now, and need to move on with my lead mountain!
