Love it. The Canberra is my favorite Allied Heavy Cruiser of the war.

You know, we did talk to Warner Brothers about this early last year, but I am afraid they would not be swayed on the amount of money required (it is rather a lot).
Any idea what made them feel the value of the license went up after the DVD sales fell off?

Re: Will there be another Call to Arms?

I would like to see a game with 'hero' units or characters that have better stats than an average crew. Maybe special weapons systems on unique ships?

I would love to see an xp system for fleets, like Mordheim. Capitol ships get xp individually and smaller ships get xp as a squadron group.

Re: Will there be another Call to Arms?

I've never seen a fleet game which could field ship numbers equivalent to the model count in a 40k or Bolt Action game without really falling over its own mechanics. Oh, a game where destroyers or even light cruisers each have one HP and capitol ships act light characters? Or did I just describe Vi...

Re: Will there be another Call to Arms?

I think an original IP is a better idea, but of I were picking anything I want I'd probably want a B5 resurrection or something based on The Lost Fleet books or Star Control, but those aren't happening. (Remember that Wizkids has a lock on TNG stuff). I definitely second an uber race (hopefully evil...

Re: Will there be another Call to Arms?

I think my ideal setup would be one where the fleets have "eras" and starter ships that make a good fleet become support vessels as the "eras" progress, so as you upgrade you move forward in the timeline, but can always play an earlier "era" game. That would give a logical progress to a storyline an...

Will there be another Call to Arms?

With Nobel Armada moving to another publisher and Star Fleet under development at Amarillo, will there be a new A Call to Arms setting? Traveller? A new, original setting? Another license? Let Star Fleet be the flag ship brand for a while and wait for a better time? What do you think? What would you...

JohnDW wrote:Actually, rather than 3.5" or 7" diameter, 4.5" or 5" diameter might be best. 7" seems way too big, and 3.5" is about the length of some of the dreadnaughts in the game so would be too small.
That would be my sweet spot too.

Re: Your preferred size for a Star Base miniature?

I'm not too hung up on the actual, numerical scale of the bases (given that a true in-scale base isn't really practical for most games). I'd just like them at least slightly larger than a dreadnaught size ship. 8) Exactly. Now the only new base mini planned is the BATS. I want my bases to look big,...

Re: ACT: SF, Most Anticipated Fleet

Ideally I'd love to see a fully expanded system that incorporates more of the star trek universe - but that would require a mass of additional licences that may stretch the mongoose budget somewhat, although then again it's not like the TNG era stuff is doing much these days. It would be relatively...

Back to on topic, I did some more thinking as i was rearranging my Fed Commander counters, and I would also love to see the Seltorians make a debut along with the Neo-tholians. Maybe even in the same book seeing as how they came out in the same Fed Commander publication [is 'module' still applicabl...

Re: ACT: SF, Most Anticipated Fleet

I am just looking forward to getting in more variety of ships of the current fleets like the B10 for the Klingons :) oh and the Reliant. You can always kit-bash a Reliant-like mini. For most anticipated ships, B-10 is definitely the top of my list. I love that the Klingons just pouring their entire...

ACT: SF, Most Anticipated Fleet

So what fleets are you most interested in getting to play that have not been released or stated? I think for me it is the Andromedans. They have a cool back story and I love the old minis. I imagine the new ones will be even better. Not expecting them any time soon though.

Has anyone else played Star Control 2? If not, I HIGHLY recommend it, as it has a bit of a Babylon 5 feel. It's my favorit game of all time and still has never been duplicated. You can get the full specal edition free online.

I like it. But if someone declared it in a game I would probably ignore the ship for the rest of the turn, as the ship will be out of the game whether or not I shoot at it. The trick would be to get into a position where that one weapon system could do serious damage, then your opponant has to basi...
