ACTA Tourney Secret Santa Style

Okay, so our gaming group has been looking at running a small tourney for the locals, but we have been struggling with the format...well because some group members are prone to whining about, oh any old thing. Anyhoo, i was talking to a guy about another game where 20 percent of your forces were cho...

Hunting Packs

Not sure if anyone noticed but centauri hunting packs just went back to the way they were origionally posted......barf.....

and you thought 4 vorchans were bad, try 5 and rolling against maximus armour and interceptors.

bye bye war level ship per turn of firing.

Duh...everyone knows ships that are red go faster

and they have a big red button on the bridge that says do not push, that when pushed makes them go really fast (conciquently if you are an orc you do it without a leadership test)

cheers

I really like the speed reduction idea, too many times those big ships just get taken out by 1) speed reduction early in game 2) front firing or any arc depending on the ship and 3)losing traits like adaptive armour or interceptors early. However i have an issue with all hands on deck and fixing cri...

Where would you put the Poseidon? By the way, if TD,P Beam gets a runaway roll.. well any ship will feel like crap. Lets face it a poseiden is crap. If it got enough fighters to make up a war point, it may be okay, but other than that, its a floating target with no guns to speak of, and that many f...

I totally see the counter argument and it makes sense that higher damage score acconts for the proposed "mass" factor i suggested, and i too do not have a problem with the critical hit table as it stands...that being said (dare i switch the focus of this topic) the Octurion. One of my favourite ship...

Actually I was referring to the Centauri :wink: Ahh, my bad sir. The centauri were based with white, and then blue inked. A light drybrish of ice blue was added. I tryed layering more blues, but it was a lot of work for not a good payoff. The real trick was the varnish. I use the dork tower spray v...

@ SolarMacharious: What blue did you use? I'd prefer a darker, more regal blue... But it could have been the flash. Otherwise, nice technique.. :) I use games workshop paints (because im addicted, ill admit it.) I based the Sharlin with black, and applied a blue ink. I then drybrushed a heavy layer...

Critical Hits...a new idea?

Hi Just had an idea about critical hits and the way they work. It seems that most of the problems here spring from the fact that swarming big ships with lots of little ones has the potential for way more crits, and therefore leads to people not taking big ships, which leads to swarm fleets. Heres my...
