Re: whens the next dredd campaign day??

+1 for campaign day, makes for more balanced crews with advancement that is earned rather than bought. Though it would be better if winning/ loosing was based on VPs/ mission results rather than the total value of the crew.

Re: Mongoose tonight

Question regarding that, most of my guard infantry are non-GW models which look the part, would these be allowed?

Re: Changes to Dredd

Will current prices be in effect at the upcoming tourny?

If not, can I order and set the postage to be 'pick up at the office'.
There's a few things I have my eye on but nothing urgent needed for the tourny.

Re: Star Fleet's Finest 2013 Tournament - June 15th

The min ship cost also stops Orions being brought along, which I fancied bringing out to a tourny.

Re: New Edition of Block War

Try by all means, but only outcome I can see is win for Dark Judges. Their spirit form, not of this world and 30 hits mean you need to approach a kill mission with them differently. I would take: 4x level riot judges, riot foam, accurate, luck of grud (add 1 more maybe to make sure) rest of points o...

Re: New Edition of Block War

Another thought on 'stunt'

1st action - shoot action
2nd 'stunt' making self safe from retaliation.

If the stunt was a 2x special action it would stop some of this.

Re: New Edition of Block War

2 questions: The Mechanismo have decent melee stats but no melee weapons, so do their fists count as weak as per normal? Seems a bit odd for a big robot to have its fists counted as this. The sky surfer 'stunt' talent states that no weapon with a range less than 40 can attack the model doing it. Giv...

Re: Rules Tinkering

Yes, when reduced to 0 hits they become a spirit and go off looking for a new host. Credit values are 800 each for 2 of them, 900 each for the other 2. The stats for them look horrible, going to be a pain to fight (if you need to kill them). Looks like the way to fight them will be to go for scenari...

Re: Star Fleet Tactical Challenges Tournament - Jan 12th

I'm having same trouble applying the voucher code, that I had with the NA tourney.

Tried logged in/ out, upper and lower case, but says that it's not recognised.

Checked and only qty is 1 and no other items in cart.

Re: [ACTA:SF] Looking for pictures of Rom ships

I've gone for metallic green base, with green fading to very pale blue colours, with a metallic black wash to give 'dirty' look. Only going to do underside in any details for the fast hawks, king eagle and condor, rest get a basic bronze fading to silver on the edges. Very much work in progress, sti...

Re: Star Fleet Tactical Challenges Tournament - Jan 12th

Couple of questions: (1) The event horizon misison - can the shuttles be attacked? (2) And, when does the compulsory movement of the black hole come in relation to transporting the objectives off the shuttles? As you need to be within 2" to transport off, if you transport, then do compulsory movemen...

[acta-na] using captured ships in a fleet

New fleets of the fading suns allow a royal house fleet to use 1 captured royal ship per 1000pts, or part of. Am I right in thinking that it applies even if you haven't previosly captured it in a campaign, ie when making any fleet list you can pick (a limited number of) ships from the other royal ho...

[acta-na] gattling lasers

Reading the core rule book and the fleets of na supplement, the wording is slightly different.

Does a standard gatling laser system fire as many times as needed, or, only once a turn against each type of threat ie (fighters, rockets, grapples)?

Re: Dust clouds and defensive fire

No question about its right within the rules. Question is, should the penalty for firing into/ within a dust cloud also apply to defensive fire. It applies in all other circumstances, including firing at suicide shuttles, but the way stealth is worded (states firing on another ship) excluded defensi...
