Pirate use of Empire ships

I was wondering if there any rules for Orion pirates using the ships of the other empires, having either salvaged them from battle fields or capturing them when attacking convoys? I have an Ramius that was a bit dodgy cast (impulse gone :P) and was missing the third engine, mongosse's customer servi...

That would be nice, if only to have a model of it that would not cost you £50+ to get.

Re: Romulans vs Klingons. Oh my...

I don't really see the need for the Klingon's special rule, they already have agile and anti drone, did they really need it? Admitably it does encourage tactical play.

Star fleets finest 1250pts list

With the restrictions for the star fleet's finest, ie no 150pts, I'm looking at this fleet: U.S.S Titanic, Federation class Dreadnought (DNF variant) 310pts U.S.S Castamere, Constitution class heavy cruiser 180pts U.S.S Excelsior, Constitution class heavy cruiser 180pts U.S.S Lightning, Wolverine cl...

Re: Would you buy prepainted minis on ebay

If they were really nice painted, I'd keep it, but in most cases I would just strip them. So yes, I would buy prepainted models.

If you could have one non OS ship, what would it be?

If Mongoose were given permission to produce a model for one non Original series ship for some reason, what would you like to see? I'd love to see an Enterprise B myself. If this is a bit risky due to overzealousness on Paramounts part, then I apologise, I am just interested to see if for some reaso...

Re: Romulan kestrel ships

Yes, but were they that scared of the Andromadons that they helped the romulans rather then let the empire be destroyed and then welcome any survivors/systems that fled/then came over to them, considering the history of both had with the Star empire, there must have been factions with both that hate...

Possible Starter box

Whilst the squadren boxes are very good, I was wondering if Mongoose would possibly be releasing a "starter" box" in the future? As whilst the squadron boxes are good, I think we can all agree it has resulted in a large surplus in dreadnoughts, plus the only way to get the thin rulebook is the the £...

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

Must admit I have two lists I'm thinking of taking, though they are both 6 ships, and the main difference is the relative value of better turning compared to fast ships. Part of me would be interested to see a tholian/orion fleet, just of the largest ships of those fleets, or perhaps give them an ex...

Re: Copied from the ADB Facebook Page

I agree in that I think it is too early to dismiss Call to arms Star fleet, as there is interest in it in my gaming group, it is just they are finishing off their stuff first. Yes the early mismanagement may have caused some damage, but not enough to be fatal, especially when you think how GW is kil...

Re: Looking for ideas for freighter paintjobs

If you feel up to a challenge, is could be an idea to try a patchwork effect, to show decades of makeshift repairs and such.
