And a new version of the Judges in dresses and the one in his underpants from the Judge Cal arc would be ace too - I know GW did them (and I have them) but those are hard to come by and fun! But they would probably not be great sellers unfortunately. Its probably best if Mongoose concentrates on fi...

To be fair to Mongoose, I doubt they could actually afford to sell it for less than the £50 region.

GW sell at the same price band, and people buy it. But GW are a global company and can absorb to set up costs knowing that the number of sales will be vast.

If there were to be a VaS 2.o, I would like to see the PL system replaced with points system. Just my opinion, but I find that there are just too many wide variations of ships within the same PL. Agree re crew, we have never had a ship reduced to skeleton crew. Anyone tried it using 1 pt of damage =...

Mogador Class French Destroyer

Just a quicky -

Been away from the game for a while. Is the Mogador destroyer correct as of the printing?

A patrol destroyer with 4 damage, 3 ad of secondary, plus port AND starboard torps seems rather on the powerful side.

Is there anything further on this?
The 12ad of secondary clearly must be incorrect, but giving it 1 ad of secondary seems equally wrong, considering the description - and the fact it would appear that in making it an AA cruiser they added no AA guns, removed most of the secondary and the torps.

The way I read it, from page 30, when you buy a hero, you choose to add 1pt each to two stats, and assign it two talents. Additionaly, if you are upgrading a minion to hero, then you also add +1 hits. Maybe the section regarding upgrading a minion would be better in parenthesis, but this is just the...

I note that the SJS judge on page 54 is a level 4 hero, but has only 2 hits.
Should this be 5 hits?

Talent Requirements

A number of the talents require skills such as shoot +12 (master rifleman, sniper shot etc), will +12, or other very high stat numbers.... but in the experience section on page 31 it states that : "No characteristic can be increased in this way to be more than three higher than the Hero started with...

Yes.

In nature a hunting pack will be after a single prey. They work together to take down a bigger foe. This seems to be the essence of what the designers were trying to represent, so allowing them multiple targets would seem illogical.
