My success in the realms of Science Fiction is based on the sales of my popular series Forgestriker; the fighting is more akin to the lesser known board game Mordheim then the more recognised cousin Warhammer 40K.
What I mean is that while the battles are based on high-powered super artillery, most of the fighting is written in close-combat style. I have always preferred the tension of personal battle as opposed to the massive armies of Warhammer and Warhammer 40K. My liking for close-combat explains my fondness for games such as Splinter Cell and Thief.
