I think the OGL is great.

It lets gamers write up their own rules... and sell them... officially.

And it gives everyone else a whole toolbox of rules to use in their games.

And if you want to run a tournament just use the basic rulebook... simple really.

The Painting Guide NEEDS YOU!

Hey chaps, The B5:ACTA Painting guide needs pictures of your fleet for a "reader's gallery" styled section. I know there is a thread just above that has a plethora of photos but I need you to email me un-cropped and original sized images. Use the email button just below. I can't promise to use every...

The Askold is the first vessel to set sail from the shipyards... The miniature is a Human Cruiser from Spartan Games fantasy naval game Uncharted Seas http://i337.photobucket.com/albums/n400/Dave_Robotham/Askold.jpg http://i337.photobucket.com/albums/n400/Dave_Robotham/Askold2.jpg http://i337.photob...

Ok, I guess meant I want the models mentioned re-sculpted...

A remastered Omega and Nova would be nice indeed.
Sadly they are only re-mastering not re-sculpting.

My re-sculpt list would be very long... :wink:

I'm sure when B5 does away you could write a "B5 ships for 3rd Ed. ACTA" document and have it for download for free. Where can we go to get confirmation of this? If we had elections on team members for a annual or biannual balance/tweak project and a free ACTA update for B5 ship universe, would thi...

From the looks of it IWM will continue to produce the models. I reckon they have a license for them from WB... who knows. I like to think Mongoose would not have started their dealings with IWM knowing they were going to ditch the license 6 months later. Maybe I just see too much good in humanity th...

If you read the State of the Mongoose, if I understand correctly they currently have only one editor who also does the layout. I think 2 months is probably about right. Then again, given the disappearance of the painting guide I won't be holding my breath. Cheers, Gary They only have one layout art...

It won't be B5 ACTA, it will be New Licence ACTA.
Or New Setting ACTA... I don't think Matt has said it will be a Licensed setting, unless you know any more... :P

Matt has said he wants it finished by the end of the year. That gives them a couple of months to get it edited, laid out and printed. :?: Hope you mean weeks and not months! It gives them more than a couple of weeks... In reality a book could be laid out and edited in a few days... depends on the r...

Well there was going to be a non-licenced game 'Emergence', but the end of the minis put paid to that. Even if ACTA were to become OGL, I imagine B5 would be very, very off limits. Oh I don't want it for B5. The ACTA system would be fantastic for the Open Gaming Licence. The rules stay off-limits a...
