I don't like the chaplain as a separate character. If you want to include a padre it would seem to fit better as a heroic trait - along the lines of medic. (Maybe nothing more than a renaming of Rallying Cry) I disagree, it adds colour and flavour to the Army. Yes indeed it does. But does it fit wi...

Agree with that. Can be awkward to assemble without superglueing your fingers to them but otherwise one of my faves.

Can you give us an idea of which models you still have in stock? Is everything still available (until Dec 31st) - even if there is a wait?

There are no other minis with seperate shock stick arms though, so it would have to be deliberate.

I was thinking of doing something with the Rebel forces from S&P38. Rather than representing folk rebelling against the Federation (which never rang true) I want to use them as civilians Examples would be the settlers at Fort Joseph Smith (massacred by bugs in the film) or the colonists on LV-426 fi...

I don't like pre-painted figures because the same pose has to be used over and over again. (This is also my one complaint about the LAMI.) One of the reasons I really like the current range of figures is the number of plastic models, allowing each figure to be individual. (I love the pathfinders.) A...

Has the cost of the upgrade from Senior Ensign to Fleet Lt been clarified? Table says +45, text says +20 and the only benefit is a +20 trait.
So I'm guessing the text is right.

Re: grenades

Please help me understand the grenade rules - do we have 'direct fire' hand grenades and/or 'indirect fire' grenades, quite possibly 'scattering' back into my own troopers ?

I profoundly disagree with any statements along the lines of "RQ encourages roleplaying more".
