Well, they had to redo the binding shortly after the initial release on both the Fleet Lists and the Rulebook. Other than that, I do't know of any changes. Assuming you're looking at 2 copies of the 2nd Ed Fleet Lists. There are the 1st Ed, Sky Full of Stars and 2nd Ed fleet list books that I'm awar...

I would put it at Ancient level rather than Armageddon. "Most last regardless of init" is an Ancient level ability.

Interceptors. Add fighters to increase to 3 or 4 interceptors per ship. Have an Explorer? Bring it for the fighters, Scout and +1 Command. Run it right down his throat and then pretty much ignore what he does to it. If he lets it get into range, his mistake. And keep the rest of your ships back but ...

We have also been toying with the idea of a points-based CTA 3. And that is all I will say about CTA 3 for now :) All I want out of CTA 3 would be a way to easily convert B5 fleets to the new system, e.g. all the existing rules mechanisms such as hull armour, damage points, special rules, etc. woul...

Well, I use them in smaller games as well. Mostly as init and damage sinks (that 3+ Dodge is nice). I have Never seen them accomplish more than killing other BSs. Ever.

Which is the real reason I brought so many Blue Stars. I had hoped that they would tie up the Scouts long enough to finish off the big Ships. Didn't really expect them to handle the Scouts or even last all that long. Big Time surprised with the effectiveness of the Blue Star. In combat, not just as ...

EA is very flexible. Try out a bunch of different combinations and find one that works for you.

EA has several choices for play style. But the ultimate goal is to get a boresighted target And have a bunch of other weapons in other arcs pouring it on. Some, well, probably most, hang back and ping with the boresights as long as possible, others barrel right in and smash it up in the center of th...

I'll reread it, but it was still a complete waste of a War point. We completely forgot about the Scouts' stealth the first round of firing, but after that, with fighters in base contact and with 6 Scouts (WSs) on the table, And with being inside 8 inches, the Stealth didn't really help them much. On...

All around, very disappointed with the Shadows. Would have been a better game with EA or someone else.

This may very well have been our last game, much as we'd both like to play again. I head back to PA at midnight this Sat/Sun. Excellent and most intersting report :) sounds like fun 8) This isn't the official report. We have photos and I'm writing the real thing up with them. Of course, being a tad ...

Two-fers cost and give based on Patrol level for each ship. You just get to Deploy 2 for each patrol point. So, Patrol level costs to Buy each one, Patrol level points to Kill each one. 2 deployed for the cost of one. There are benefits and problems with them, no question. They really shine in 1-off...

Taran vs L33tpenguin 10 War

It is 3 years after the Drakh attack on Earth and the Excalibur is nearing the end of her mission to find a cure to the plague the Drakh planted there. The ISA has rebuilt their shipyard and produced the first 2 new Victory Class Destroyers since the Excalibur and her late consort. The ISAS Phoenix ...

All Hands is automatic. Can't fail it. The failure to fix anything when you did All Hands was because of my Comms Disruptor and the next turn was the No Spec Actions crit.

I'm thinking 10 War with 1 Arma, ISA vs Shadows...
