Re: Mass Effect - the 28mm wargame

It would be quite cool to create a mercenary group or elite team from all the races or the just militaries from the game, would even love a Ship to ship game as the codex said with pretty good detail how combat worked

Re: Kzinti & Drones - Input Welcomed

I was thinking about drones, is there any reason that Drones just can't be +1 or +2 to hit or 0-12 (2+), 12-24 (3+) and 24-36 (4+). I personally don't think there should be a limit to how many ships can fire at a target with them. On to the mini's, I know why i find them hideous. It's the front part...

Re: [House Rules] A drone nerf and some cloaking changes.

Only if they win initiative and there probably another ship that can target or you get another to target. It's a fleet game

Even a move 6 you can't run away. You will be pointing the wrong way.

Re: [House Rules] A drone nerf and some cloaking changes.

Im not so sure about nerfing of the drones, Ships in SF are fast 12", doesn't take long to close. Romulans can cloak right up to the Kzinti & pop out facing any direction without facing the drones. Only get hit once decloaked & it's not like you get hit by huge numbers of drones once you decloak & t...

Re: Starline 2500 Gorns Walk on the Wild Side

What i don't get is fluff holding back models looking better. People buy models cause of stats in rulebooks and good looking minis. Better the looking minis the more you sell

Re: This ships

Thing about clustering is don't have them the same size as normal as it does look as bad as tacking them on which it is. Maybe three smaller ones incased in a housing or along those lines. Feds aren't to bad apart from a couple, Klingons ok, Romulan Hawk series could be cooler if they didn't tack en...

Re: This ships

The ships designs need to be smartened up a bit. Just because its the way it has been for 30 yrs is pretty rubbish. Thats what it seems to me a bit. There's new technology so use it. The models can be improved a lot. Clustering the engines is a good idea & looks a hell of a lot better than tacking o...

Re: New way of playing B5

We have moved stealth from being a save to roll the stealth roll & Stealth 4 or less gives -1 to hit & Stealth 5 upwards -2 debating whether to get rid of the stealth roll & just have the to hit modifier To hit a score of 7 you need a 6 then 2, 8 =6,3 & so on AF kills a fighter, no dodge roll. Can g...

New way of playing B5

We have been playing round with B5, had a few games with this modification, seems to have promise. The Dreadfleet rule seems to be helping big ships. We are also trying to simply the weapons. WORK IN PROGRESS Get rid of the Crew Score, swap them with ships like the Explorer Ships fired upon get Half...

Re: First picture of the Federation Battleship

Why don't they pair the engines up or have a cylinder or triangle with two or three engine ports instead of tacking engines on spare space. It's the main reason i don't like the models. Just my two cents

Re: First picture of the Federation Battleship

It's pretty hideous. The whole add extra engines on doesn't get me going wow. With the technology now there is no reason to have ugly models. I like the Klingons generally, most of the feds. Romulans could be a little better. Kzintis are terrible. I won't buy ugly models unfortunately even though i ...

Gorn models

Just been flicking through the Gorn & Kzniti??? I'd be fairly embarassed as them with ships looking like that. Definately won't purchasing them. I presume thats the way the old Starfleet models looked like. Surely they should of let Mongoose make better models. Thought the Feds had circles with engi...

Romulan Fleet selection

Just wondering is it possible to have only Hawk/Condor Fleet without too many holes or are the Hawk series more exspensive.
Don't want any Klingon hulls or the Ugly Snipe/Eagle ships.
