Pocket vice full rule book

I've pre-ordered Klingon and Federation fleet boxes from The Warstore. These come with a 'pocket rulebook'.

What are the differences between the full and pocket versions?

Do the pocket versions have the ship stats for the ships included in the fleet boxes?

Thanks

Jake

Yep, pretty cool figures. The one problem I had with them is the resin was very brittle and I had a couple break on me. Super glue fixed them, but still a hassle.

Re: Cloaked ship Pic

Inks will certainly enhance some of the details but my concern is that the ink will also ruin the cloak effect I've used inks on clear resin 'cloaked' minis before, I thought they came out decently... http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg134/CptJake_Minis/Hunter%20Aliens/P9150010.jpg http://i247.ph...

It annoys me greatly that I tried to do the right thing and support Mongoose by pre-ordering from them, only to get an error filled version. Amen. When I buy a book, to find out that a "corrected version" is already out, it tends to frustrate me. Under another topic a guy claims he and his friends b...

I guess I just find it pretty annoying that I buy a hard cover book last week, just to find out it is missing stuff. A new version is already out, was probably already out when I bought my copy. And now I can patiently wait for an errata to be released which some folks have already included in their...

Mine does not have the B-17 or the SM. 79. Why would I be missing these, I just bought the darned book? What else may I be missing? How did different versions get released this quickly? Is there a list of what we SHOULD have gotten in the book?

Am I just an unlucky guy?

Gale Force 9 make islands for the Pirates game which may be of use if you don't want to make your own. The Warstore had a sale on these a while back and I got the two sets at a very good price.

You could buy a big blue tarp at Home Depot to use if the carpets are not blue.

I suppose you could always get your own fighters to occupy the ME-109s... I can't think of too many bomber or observation plane pilots who would enjoy taking off without fighter cover into a swarm of enemy fighters.

I have 1:6000 fleets for the Pacific. When playing and storage space are at a premium this is a good answer. The ships look a lot better than "slivers of metal" or "flash from another mini". They are actually pretty nice (and as mentioned the price is also really nice). Before you knock them, buy a ...
