No SFB releases pending?

What is going on, now there isn't any releases listed for SFB. Has the line been dropped? Is there no sensor suite functioning, set the scanners!

Re: Mini Fed & Empire

oh oh, i posted a game of F&E Finlos and I were playing to generate ACTA battles. Was that a mistake? It discussed after action reports and our ideas on how to integrate it into SFB.

Re: Orions are nasty.

The other advantage is you can vary the primary weapon suites. A mix of disruptors, plasmas and drones is very hard to counter. I tend to skip the photons as they have the 50% hit/miss problem. The agility is a huge advantage too. With the Gorns I tend to play with the anticipated loss of initiative...

Carriers/Fighters

I posted some trial ideas for carriers and fighters on my Romulan vs Gorn battle report. The ideas are for the F&E campagn Finlos and I are running.

Re: Federation and Empire Scenario #43 Gorn vs Rom

Now to cost out the carriers use the original shop cost ie: Gorn CL is 175 plus the cost of the fighters. Base cost of a fighter ended up being anywhere from 6 to 15 points depending on original cost x1.25. A Romulan fighter yr 168 " G-F, Range 8/2=4 inch deployment, PH3 x2= 2AD, PL Dx2= 2 AD at a c...

Re: Federation and Empire Scenario #43 Gorn vs Rom

We are working on fighters/carrier rules. Early play test for us is as follows. I used SFB sheets to generate the number of fighters and capabilities of the carriers and fighters. Ships are relatively easy as usually they use the base hull and just drop weapons for fighter bays. The fighters weren't...

Re: Federation and Empire Scenario #43 Gorn vs Rom

The only ships in your fleets are the ones you produce through F&E game turn production. The game starts you with only certain types of ships and limited numbers. To make extra ships you have to spend the economic points. A dreadnought is very expensive to produce when you could have 2-3 heavy/light...

Re: PF and PF tender

I was thinking of using the old 2400 line DD or police frigates and so on for the PF's (gunboats) and mounting them on spare bases from the ACTA-SFB with magnets and arc stickers. They are a different size and wouldn't be mixed up with the new 2500 line ships. Best part is I can still use all my old...

Re: PF and PF tender

I wish I had a decent picture of the Gorn PF's, but I didn't so I used a picture of the Fed fighter. I like to have a picture on my word document sheet of the ship I am using. Ex. for the PF Tender-Gorn I used the battle destroyer picture from the web site so when I look at my record sheet the minia...

PF and PF tender

Finlos and I discussed the use of PF's (mini ships) with their own sheets but they would have to move as a flotilla. The sheets were easy to bring across from SFB, the conversion was simple. The house rules on PF's would be they operated as a 6 group flotilla with 1 leader version (50pnts), 4 base f...

Re: Federation and Empire Scenario #43 Gorn vs Rom

Turn 7= The Gorns deliver a Coup-de-grace to the Romulans. The Romulan fleet runs south and the Gorn CC and DD give chase. The WE and SP nail my poor little scout who is crippled, no shields and 3 hp left. Easy meat for them. The DD unloads a plasma and phaser barrage into the WE and finishes it off...

Re: Federation and Empire Scenario #43 Gorn vs Rom

Turn 6= The Gorns are ecstatic, they won the initiative again. Must be my night. Romulans are starting to hurt, big ships are dieing fast and the rest are thinking of running. Only 2x SP, a severely damaged WE and a SNB still in fight. The last SK already all power to engines and bailed off the map....

Re: Federation and Empire Scenario #43 Gorn vs Rom

Turn 5= The Gorns win the initiative again??? What are the dice gods doing to the Romulans? LOL This turn the re-loaded plasmas from the CL x2 and a BD move in to kill the KRC and chew up the WE. Critical hits are plentiful and hurt the Romulans bad. KRC is smoking space dust and the WE is leaking R...
