Aim and Hasten Questions

Hi all,

Couple of questions that came up in the first game of our new Traveller campaign.

- Can you use the Aim minor action for a bonus to Melee Attacks?

- Can you declare that you are acting Hastily and the offset the penalty by Aiming in the same turn?

Thanks.

Re: Paint club

Suffered a painting setback last night that almost made me want to Godzilla rage stomp my minis. Had a D6 fully painted (and painted well in my opinion) and had applied the decals. Took most of the night to finish. As I was about to spray a protective varnish coat onto it, I accidentally dropped it ...

Re: Paint club

Thanks guys. Updated the second pic to show decal. Next up is probably the D6, but I might not get to start on it until after the weekend.

Re: Paint club

As someone who hates painting, but has gotten fairly decent at it since I started messing with miniatures games around 1987, I'm trying to get a few squads finished. I bought the Federation Squad Box #1, and Klingon Squad Box #2 - Then decided it would be easier to use Starline 2400 minis interchang...

Thanks.

Re: Prime Directive...

I finally had a chance to read through GURPS PD, and was a bit disappointed by the limited rules describing RPG player characters using Star Fleet Battles. I would really like to see a bit more detail in the Traveler version of Prime Directive describing how to integrate the RPG characters with game...

Re: Prime Directive...

Having owned (but never played) the original Prime Directive, I know it focused on away team missions that didn't necessarily involve the bridge crew. Are there any plans to include rules for bridge crew in the RPG and how they might be integrated with A Call to Arms in order to facilitate RPG inter...

Re: First Call to Arms Star Fleet Minis

Thanks for the info. I assembled the minis last night, and the only issue I had (other than the booms of three of the Klingon ships being bent almost entirely back on themselves) was a missing phaser dish for the Federation Light Cruiser model in the Squadron Box. Or maybe that model just doesn't co...

Re: First Call to Arms Star Fleet Minis

Great! Thank you. That is exactly what I was looking for.

Are there any Klingon or Romulan decals available anywhere?

First Call to Arms Star Fleet Minis

I just got my first box of Call to Arms Star Fleet Minis in (Federation and Klingon squadron boxes), and have to say my favorite mini is probably the stubby little Burke frigate. I am assembling them to paint as I type this, and was just curious: Does anyone sale proper scale decals for these ships?...

Hex Bases?

Does anyone use hex bases on their Call to Arms Star Fleet miniatures?

I'm interested in using the miniatures for both Call to Arms and Federation Commander, and was wondering if anyone else has done this. If so, what is a good online source for the buying bases?

Thank you!

Starter Question

Hi folks, I'm looking to buy a starter fleet box, but wanted to ask a few questions before doing so. 1) Are all of the Mongoose scale ships the same size, or did a miniature revision happen at some point? 2) From reading another thread, I noted that the SFB minis were a different size than the Mongo...

Hi all,

Can old FASA Trek Miniatures be used with A Call to Arms?

Are they the same scale?

Quick Elric/Runequest II question

How compatible is Elric with Runequest II?

Are there differences in "power level," or can both be used together without making changes or modifications?

Thanks.
