Re: New for Federation - the Big Ships...

Just a quick bump on this thread b/c I'm waiting to see if Mongoose is able to stand by Matt's previous statement that the new models would be available towards the end of November. C'mon guys! Let's step up that casting/packaging, us greedy gamers need our toiz! 8) I can be placated btw (maybe for ...

Re: Any word on Cloaked Romulans?

Problem with cheaper resin models is...Why buy the full priced ones then? Just buy your "cheaper" resin models, prime and paint them...you just got your entire fleet for cheaper. It doesn't really make any sense for you guys to expect the resin models to be cheaper. They aren't required...it's absol...

Re: New for Federation - the Big Ships...

I think they're doing a fan total tastic job with the ship designs. One has to remember that not EVERY ship is going to be aesthetically pleasing to EVERYONE. Pick any miniature wargame that you play...I'm willing to bet that there is a selection in your faction that you feel they could have done "b...

Re: Dreadnoughts, Dreadnoughts everywhere.... why?

I've been here since the GET-GO! I just don't post as much because I've got the same local problem as you do with "not enough players". This is also what causing my blog to not be updated as much as I would like as well. That along with another crappy year of regular life sh!tstorms. I saw that same...

Re: Dreadnoughts, Dreadnoughts everywhere.... why?

If you're looking for optimum composition of your fleet you're not buying ANY of the box sets anyway. Sure you get a dreadnought with every box set, but how many useless strike Cruisers do you have? Police Cutters? Frigates? None of those ships are really..."optimal". I've got over 1500 pts of feds ...

Re: Revised Playtest Scout Rules

In the case of the Federation...wouldn't that effect on the photons simply mean that you're forced to spread your photon salvo over two turns? Normally, a Fed Cruiser will unload his torps and reload next turn. Instead, against a scout, you'll have to ration out your torps, two this turn, two next t...

Of course I paint as a necessary evil...to get painted models on the board. Primer is Krylon flat Grey, and I paint with Liquitex base co...

ACTA: Star Fleet tournament at NOVA 2013....?

I'm thinking about running this at the mainly Warhammer 40K tournament next year just outside of DC. It's an August tournament. I'm going to talk to Mike Brandt (the tourney organiser) about it when I attend the 40K portion THIS year. They DO feature other games like FOW and Warmahordes....why not A...

I know this is off topic...but...

I just love hearing Matt talk tactics about his game! He seems to echo everything I think about certain situations!

If you come across the pond we need to play Matt! I want to beat you at your own game! :twisted:

Re: Federation tactics

..... Swapping two CA's for CS's and getting the extra drones the CS brings to the fight can be accomplished simply by subbing out one FF for a POL. Yuck....bad trade! CA is better than the CS. :( I'd rather have the 4 extra hull damage points than a drone that'll probably never hit a target anyway...

Klingon Fleet tweaking...(1000pts) and a decision to be made

I mentioned how the frigate-heavy Klingons worked so well for me using this fleet.... D7Cx3 E4x5 I know the command option x3 seems accessive, but the D7C is such a good ship...however, the new point stat of the D5W caught my attention. I changed the fleet to this...
