Baccus specialises in the design and production of wargames figures and accessories in the 6mm scale.

Time for yet another preview of a game coming to you at the this Year's Joy of Six. It's time for a complete change of pace as I've asked the ridiculously talented Dan Hodgson to give us all a look at what he's been working on.   It's a science fiction subject both familiar and dear to many of our hearts.   Above all it's been executed brilliantly.   But enough of the waffle - over to Dan...
