Re: ACTA Starfleet AAR: Klingons vs Feds 2000 pts

Actually, there are 6 different groups play testing. Alaska, Missouri, Atlanta, Tennessee, UK, Oklahoma. I'm in the process of re-drafting the entire set to include all changes / suggestions made to date. Once the beta set is ready - I will be looking for another group or two to play and report. An...

That was a great game, Dan, Eric. From now on whenever I run my Kzintis I'll have that picture of the kitty plush toy sitting on its command chair! :lol:
Plush toy??? That's a picture of a REAL cat! --LOL

I agree with Bill here. Keep the alignment but turn the engines around.

This looks very cool! Scary as hell.

Re: Battle in the Poldar Asteroid Belt - Kzinti Space

What happened to all your pics and the AAR, Drummer? Hi Bill -- This first post on mine was not the more involved report I made later: http://forum.mongoosepublishing.com/viewtopic.php?f=103&t=56191 Unfortunately, my involved, narrative posts -with lots of pictures- have consumed my quota of memory...

Re: Where are all the pics of painted minis? SF

After escaping this fireball, I suppose this Firehawk had its paint sizzled and might need some touch ups :)

Re: Where are all the pics of painted minis? SF

Excellent looking Romulans :) The Sparrowhawks w/o modules look sharp. Love the wings. I might just borrow a few of your ideas for some subtle hand painted touch ups on my minis. I'm going to have to think it over. You've got some lovely birds here, Hal.

Cool ships. I like the color of your Klingons. Great job on the Romulans! It's impressive seeing the entire fleet together :)

Re: Where are all the pics of painted minis? SF

Thanks everyone :) The back of the CB saucer makes for a lot of creative choices. I'm sure there are many other cool color combinations out there.

Re: Massacre at Zeta Epsilon-- A Fed-Klingon batrep

Excellent story, Dan!!! I suppose this "never happened" and the Federation public was left in the dark.

Nothing smells as bad as the IKV Petunia, George! We HAD to blow it to bits with a name like that!

Re: ACTA:SF 2nd Edition?

I think the game system is great! It's amazingly streamlined, especially considering where SFB is coming from, and pretty fun to play (if you like fleet space battles). It's not easy to write clear and succinct rules that avoid misinterpretation, and Matt -and team- have done a pretty good job on th...

Re: ACTA:SF 2nd Edition?

Integrating the new races, with their new weapons and abilities, and balancing everything accordingly is my concern. No easy task. While I love playing Hydrans, I'd rather not see them slice easily through our little universe with overpowered gatling phasers. Or Lyrans with an impenetrable ESG. Or a...

Re: Federation Intrusion of the Romulan Neutral Zone (BATREP

Yes, I am very aware that ACTA-Star Fleet is based on Federation Commander rather than Star Fleet Battles proper. However, anybody who has played SFB likely knows the mechanics better than the "streamlined" version FC offers. Which means anything left out or edited or changed may have, by degrees, f...
