As for many wargamers, it was HeroQuest and Space Crusade that drew Richard Cowen into the hobby in the early 1990s… and he has never managed to leave. Richard has written fan rules and fiction for decades, with a passion for simple yet evocative systems that can translate science fiction books and films to the tabletop. Much of his recent work has been posted on his blog (richardcowen.wordpress.com) and he is also working on a series of novels in a Fantasy World War I setting.
