How long until the PDF will be available on Wargaming Online?
Will it be a while after the book is released, very soon after, at the same time?

or go paper lol I'm glad I'm not the only one that likes the idea of paper minis. While I like painting minis, my MADD(Miniature Attention Deficit Disorder) makes painting entire armies difficult. I like playing and trying new units as often as possible, though cost/time etc. precludes a lot of tha...

You likely did see me Darklord, I was the one who observed for a few minutes and then asked if stepping off a cliff could still be called 'death from above'. The answer was yes, but you have to make a 'do you have the balls to' test. Yup, I remember. I was the one doing the DFA at the time, much to...

No seriously I havent played any games where this system was used. Just something a thought about that would fix the ini problems for good. There are many systems that have this type of action system for the exact reason of modeling the ability to command a force. From my experience, you see it in ...

Usually I go gaming with my son over in Gilbert. Are you gaming at the place in down town Gilbert? (The name escapes me.) I'll be at the Game Depot today between 4:30 and 5 to pick up my 'Harry the Hammer' figure. I was in the back playing Battletech...maybe I saw you there. (I refeused to pay forg...

I dont know how many activations would be good and requires play testing. maybe 5? and depending on the size of the battle you get a bonus. Maybe start with the FAP designated for the force, e.g. a 6 FAP Raid force has 6 activations, then have the command special trait add activations instead of to...

I was thinking about getting a few more ships. What is the best scout for the League? Do I need a carrier? Can fighters be taken without one? Not going to be at the Con this year, maybe next. Though I think your assessment is accurate, no minis means dead game. [opinion]Not sure what the fascinatio...

Re: I'm done for now. Call me if 3rd edition fixes things.

I've really discovered that I just don't care for a great many things about ACTA2E. Each of these individually detracts from my enjoyment of the game, but together they make every game an exercise in frustration. I second this opinion. I go back and forth between trying to play a strategic space wa...

Re: My first game of World atWar

The Air Phase follows the same basic procedures as the original SST, but it has been thoroughly shaken down and revised. It is much more flexible than before, and wait until you see what you can do in Modern Combat :) Are the air rules part of the core rules? or are they an extension that could be ...

So much for "Acta is not dead"!!! Full Thrust, anyone? I'll have to look more into Full Thrust. At first glance, the inertial system put me off(I think that was FT). I was also looking at Starmada X, but I really don't like the blind-move system. That mechanic seems like it should be an optional ru...

I am not surprised by the move to take the shop down completely. I am shocked that they don't even have an ACTA section on their home website header. They have a section for Victory at Sea which has just as many supported products(Rulebook and second book). How does anyone even find out about the ga...

WaW: Obscured

Did WaW go with the Obscured mechanic of adding +1 to the Target value that was being discussed for SST:WotS? I saw in S&P55 that the FIST equipment reduces Light Cover to Obscured.

Sorry for the delay. Most of these are just dipped in varnish and then drybrushed with velejo beige. I based them on pennies to give them a better consistency.
