Star Blazers Fleet Battle System is a miniatures tabletop game of space warfare set in the Yamato universe.
This game represents a recreation of the battles and weapon systems that are seen in the popular Japanese animation series SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO, or STAR BLAZERS in the United States.
The author's intent is to construct a rules system which correctly portrays the atmosphere of the series, as well as providing a fun and balanced game.

5/22/2005 - 4 new EDF miniatures for Star Blazers Fleet Battle System will soon be available plus more may be on the way.  Here is the latest message from Musashi Enterprises:

I have been informed by Grim Reaper Casting that the production of the long anticipated EDF mini's has begun.

Hopefully, the first batch will be shipped to me around the end of the month. Once received I will post a message on the forum site as well as on the official Musashi website:

A new price structure will also be posted at that time. Expect the 4 new mini's to be in the $10.00 ea. price range with no discount plan as with the older mini's. The 20% discount will not be applied to any of the new releases since production costs have increased. Also, there is no 20% discount on the Galman sub, since this is an out of production item.

Along with the 4 new mini's we are also releasing a separate package of the battlecraft movement stands. These can be used for a number of basing options. These are the same round b/c stands you receive in each battlecraft pack, but now you can purchase them as a separate item (8 to a package). Price.$4.00 per pack.

Other space gaming projects that will relate to the existing Starblazers universe are in the works and will be announced via the forum or on the Musashi website when appropriate.

5/18/2004 - The Star Blazers Fleet Battle System official website has moved to a new home at 

On the Star Blazers FBS Yahoo Group, there has been discussion on new miniatures, and Musashi has a proposal where gamers pre-pay for the miniatures in the works to cover the $1500 sculpting costs (minimum $50 pledge which is about 5 ships).  A poll on this group indicated the most requested new minis are the Shinano, Radetsky, and Musashi plus a Yamato refit could also be done.  There is still discussion going on so join in and help the creation of new minis for this game or contact for more information.


7/12/2001 - Module II: Dark Nebula is back from the printers and is now available.

Keith from Musashi has made  the following comments about Module II:

- it is 296 pages and 3/4 of an inch thick

- it includes everything you need to play, you don't need the core rule book,

    including all the ships from the original rulebook and updated rules

- it is currently available only from Musashi, either directly or at a convention (Historicon & GenCon)


7/1/2001 - Keith posted another update on Module II to the Official Forum.

Here are the highlights:

I checked out the advance copy of the rules at the printers on Wednesday 6-26-01. 

So, the book is actually being printed as I type this. Lordy, Lordy, miracles do happen!

As of today, I am still being told that I can expect to have the books delivered to me by 7-3-01.  Hopefully, this will occur without any unforeseen delays.

People have already started to order the new rule book. If I receive the books in time before I leave for Origins on the 4th, I will attempt to ship them out.  Otherwise, I will start to ship them on the 10th of July, after my return.

Orders can be placed with Musashi at 1-414-383-7791 or My answering machine is on, so leave a message and phone number if I am not here.

The price of the Dark Nebula Module is a flat $35.00 plus $6.00 priority mail shipping fee.  Total $41.00.

Musashi Enterprises Inc, will be attending Origins and GenCon we have events scheduled for both of these shows.  We could use some help at GenCon with running events-is anyone interested?, if so contact me directly.  I will also be attending Historicon in July. I won't have a table this year, probably next year, but I will have copies of the rule book with me.  If anyone is attending Historicon and wants to get a copy of the new rules let me know.

I am trying to arrange to have at least 2 new packs of miniatures released for GenCon.  These would be the Gamilon BattleCruiser, and the Gamilon BattleCarrier II, with the nice big gun!


6/24/2001 - Dark Nebula is at the printers!  Here is Keith's message:

The Dark Nebula Module II rulebook/techmanual has been turned over to a printer as of Monday of this week.

I finally received the cover artwork from Voyager so the printer currently has everything he needs to complete the job.

As of yesterday, things are still on schedule.  Hopefully it will remain that way, but as they used to say on one of my favorite tv shows of the 1960's (actually Stingray), 'Anything can happen!'

The earliest I can expect to get the books in my hands, will be July 3rd.  The day before I leave to do the Origins Show in Columbus, Ohio  (July 5-8).

Therefore, the earliest day I can start shipping orders out will be around July 10th. Provided I have the books as promised by the printer.

The book will cost $35.00, plus about $6.00 for priority shipping if the order is mailed in the US or Canada. Overseas orders must contact me directly for shipping costs.

There is no discount for Mod II it is $35.00 plus shipping. We can accept Visa, Mastercard, or Money Orders.

People can begin to place orders with Musashi.  But note that I will closed on June 23-24, and July 4-9 due to show commitments.

5/22/2001 - More info on Dark Nebula - Module II from Keith at Musashi as

posted on the Official Forum:

"To all concerned:

Voyager Entertainment Inc., has approved the Dark Nebula Module 2.

There are still a few minor editing operations and some final input from Voyager before the book can go to the  printer.  I am hoping to accomplish this in the next week or so.

The target date is, I hope, to have it available for sale at the Origins Convention in July (5-8) held in Columbus, Ohio.

When I am informed by the printer as to when I will have the book in my hands there will be a general announcement on this site and our web page.  Until then please don't order the book. Final pricing is provisional at this time. Voyager has the final word in this and some last minute changes could occur. After all they are fliping the bill for all of this.

Further information about the contents of the book will be posted soon.  I hope to arrange a general chat session in the near future so we can all actively discuss it.  I am looking forward to this immensely.

Musashi is putting on quite a number of gaming events at Origins and GenCon this year.  If any of you can attend these conventions we would be happy to see you there and to have you participate in the games. Or run games yourself!

3/20/2000 - It has been a while since there has been any word on the Dark Nebula module.  Finally a bit more info just came out on the SBFBS Forum from 'Hardlec':

          The dark nebula module is in the final playtest stage, and several key elements are ready for production. It will be ready for sale to retailers soon, and is being sold to distributors at GAMA this week.

          Musashi is still in business, and Voyager still has the rights to Star Blazers, and there is no change in status for either in the forseeable future.

          IF ANYONE HEARS OTHERWISE: contact or Someone has been spreading rumours that SBFBS is gone. This is decidely NOT TRUE. If your store owner can't get merchandice, have him/her contact the e-mail addresses above.


So it looks like a May release plus the 20% off sale is still on!
