Long ago in the early 1980s when Frank Chadwick's concept of SPACE 1889 emerged- I was indeed most taken by it and have always had an admiring and fascinating interest in his VSF work. Alas, playing at SPACE 1889 in any form never really evolved for me- I did have a sort of VSF going in 28mm , though it wasn't SPACE 1889.
As to the Games in mind for SPACE 1889.
I tend to think that I'd like to play a sort of semi-skirmish / largish battle with some form of Airials being present in this scale.
Time and progress will tell how successful the idea of mixing Foot Units with what could be quite dominating small Airial vessels in the field of battle turns out.....it is all pretty interesting.
Thanks for reading.
