20% off

Has the 20% already been knocked off the Babylon5 models because they dont seem any chaeper to me. the fighters have always been 4.80, so where's the 20% off?

What I'd really like to see is counters that are sized proportionally to the ships that they are supposed to represent. I don't want it based on priority level. Counters based on the size of the ship would give a better feel during play. ShopKeepJon That'll make playing a Victory or Babylon 5 inter...

is it possible that once the economy recovers from the slowdown/crash, whichever it may be, that production could start again, or is ACTA mini production going to end and never be revisited again? oh and whilst this might sound silly how about 3d paper minis? origami style 'print out and fold' minis...

this might have already be answered somewhere else but here goes anyway, if no minis are going to be made anymore does that mean no more books etc will be made (ie 2e is the final release?)

i can understand that the models are going to cost more to make now so why don't Mongoose just raise their prices? They haven't increased their prices (well i can't remember the prices going up anyway.) Surely even just a small price increase (inflation and then a bit more) might make the minis more...

Going back to the corsair and spit and hurries both had several upgrades and yes the FW -190 was better than a Mk1 spit but by then the Mk9 was in service, or at least would be soon, which at the very least levelled the playing service. Its quite hard to make sure that the right variants or mark are...

maybe the mould for the mothership is taking so long because they are trying to fit 8 heavy raider minis inside it!

It is game balance that I am worried about, and as long as the typos do not radically alter the game, like giving a Minbari a hull and stealth of 6, then I say just make sure the balance is right and get me the book. It is worth pointing out that if you see a Minbari ship with Hull and Stealth 6 in...

thanks, do you use one aircraft mini to represent one flight?
Good luck with the post, i think the strike is on a thursday this time but the post always gets delayed for more than one day. My Top Gear magazine should have arrived last week but because of the last strike i still don't have it!

thanks to everyone who replied.
