Re: The Royal Navy is gonna be toothless for a while...

I am a touch typist, but unfortunately, not every key I type registers when I am typing in the edit windows, some letters get left out, and if I do not catch them before I submit, I sometimes don't bother to correct them, I figure people can figure it out over the typos. I also touch-type. I also p...

It's current Harpoon missile inventory is slated for retirement in 2018, and currently there are no funds set aside to purch...

Re: MGT v2 & Bits and Mortar program

Matt, Is the MGTv2 going to be part of the Bits and Mortar program? There were some v1 books that my local game store said he could not find in pdf format. Phavoc Whenever that happens, I send an e-mail to Matt and he sorts it out. Usually I add a photo of the book and my receipt. That usually sort...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Going by a recent example, the electronics and programming seem to eat up half the development cost, and then you have to debug them. Personally I feel that regarding computers and programming, we're living in a strange time - things keep changing rapidly. I am no ship architect but, by the time of...

And what about the people who aren't on the forums? There's what, 50 or so regulars here who may be aware that Mongoose has a policy of releasing PDFs that still need more work, but what about the hundreds of other people who aren't here and who aren't aware of that and who buy the "final" PDF expe...

Re: Earth-like planet around Proxima Cetauri discovered!

Because we were going strong in the 60s then crashed. The space program has been on idle with the Liberty station as a seldom noticed placeholder. We're not really trying. I do, of course, blame the economy of politics gumming it up. We should have had some sort of permanent research facility on Lu...

Re: High Guard - On The Way

Which is why we release the PDF before we send the book to print :) We have a veritable battery of Traveller experts picking apart each book, but nothing beats a whole bunch of players! So it's a beta release, basically? People who just want to use a book that works should wait a few months while t...

While I also prefer hardcopy, I wouldn't say faster then searching a PDF.
The "Bits and Mortar" scheme means I have both book and PDF.

Re: Mongoose News - The Printed Edition of Traveller has Arrived!

In order to support my FLGS I waited like a kid on the day before Christmas. Well today Christmas arrived. I am now a proud owner of a brand new 2e Mongoose Traveller core rule book in Hardback. :mrgreen: I waited patiently for the book to arrive in Travelling Man, Newcastle. Was worth the wait :)

Paint

Hi,

We are currently using water based paints by "Coat d'arms".

I was wondering if "Daler-Rowney System 3 acrylic paint" (from Amazon) would be suitable as well?

Any other suggestions welcome :)

BW,
