Re: Where to get Call to arm models in Europe?

Ah, so the problem is that the stores want to pay ADB less for the models, not that they want to charge more?

Re: Where to get Call to arm models in Europe?

I suppose the other thing that 'could' be done but would not be idea would be just allow the stores to sell the figures at a higher price, it would make them more expensive for the consumer but would allow them to have a bigger profit without hurting the ammount that ADB gets.

Re: Victory at Sea Video Game - Now on Steam

I got the game, its pretty fun! Will the campaign mode only allow you to play as Ally forces, or will it be expanded an update/ add on? Any plans for multiplayer? Also, there are some aspects of the game that are not explained in the campaign tutorial, in the games virtual manual, or in the 'help' s...

Re: Will there be another Call to Arms?

You never know when lightning will strike, before FFG launched their x-wing game would anyone have also thought the market is too saturated in miniatures games for another to succeed?

Re: Gorn Fleet advice requested...

The rules are actually being updated and are going to be re-released when the file is doing being edited, so the game will probably play differently than it did with the original rule set, but it should still be fairly similar to how it is now, so don't cling too much to the rules as you've seen the...

Yesss~ Hopefully that release date will be solid and not get delayed, but if development requires it then a delay would be understandable.

Re: [ACTASF] Starline 2500 is expanding!

Although I could see how a dreadnaught needs to be less modular than cruisers and frigates, thus less need for the highly modular 'hawk' style hulls, it would still be nice to see what was come up for them to look like.

Re: [ACTASF] Starline 2500 is expanding!

Love the vulture and that its a 'full' eagle style ship, would love to see a 'full' hawk style dreadnaught, if its ever viable. The condor just looks out of place to me.

Mathiew did do some writing for BFG back in the day for Armada and BFG magazine.

Heck it could be something that they would license out to Mongoose if GWS doesnt want to do an...

Re: AAR 7.3.14 Federation vs Klingons

Interesting battle, but the drone rules have been posted on the ADB forums for what feels like about a month now, so you could have used drones, and if you're willing to do some digging around you could find some posts on there about conversion factors to give you the hull and shield values that are...

Re: ACTA: SF Klingon Dreadnought conversion - WIP

Other than the crystal 'exhaust' there is also the front 'metal rim' that wraps around, so there's some detail on both ends of the engine that give it a direction.

Is this a class that you created? or is it one that already exists?

Re: Your preferred size for a Star Base miniature?

Actually, rather than 3.5" or 7" diameter, 4.5" or 5" diameter might be best. 7" seems way too big, and 3.5" is about the length of some of the dreadnaughts in the game so would be too small.

Re: Your preferred size for a Star Base miniature?

Clearly the size of the base you want depends on how much disposable income you have, and whether you plan on lugging such a huge model around with you, or use it at home only. The most versitile option being the 1/8th of scale, requireing less material, less painting time, less production and purch...

Re: Looking for some more ball and socket mounts for the min

Billclo, technically there is no reason why the ship has to 'line up' with the base, so long as the base is used for the arcs instead of the ship itself, sure its generally nice to have them lined up, because it looks prettier that way, but its not needed. most of my ships using the ball-and-socket ...
