The rules look good, but the ship selection seems to be rather thin. I would recommend the following.

Frigates

Nebulon B2
Corellian Gunboat
Lorenar Strike Cruiser
Dreadnoughts
Carrack light Cruiser
MC60?
Imperial Escort Carrier

Capital Ships
MC80A
MC80B
MC80C
Imperial Mk II
Victory
Victory Mk II

Still holding on to that ACTA's dream

Well I realise that I am probably the last person that still hopes a new ACTA's will be produced by mongoose. Even now I am begining to lose faith. While Mongoose has reintroduced one of its old mini games the one game that I was a die hard for was ACTA's. After years of "its coming" that dream is u...

Re: Some rules questions

First - fast moving targets are described as moving greater than 7" in VaS. However, a reference is made to this modifier in OoB as "moving 7" or more". Which is correct? >7" or >/=7"? I don't know. Go with the ruling in order of battle until you are told by somebody offical that its a typo. You co...

I think I might switch to a points based system, the combinations of the Priority level and the Formation rules is serving to restrict the fleet choices a bit much.

I will need playtesters to help smooth out the rough edges. A playtest pack will be available shortly so if you wish to run the ships and rules through your expert and very critical examinations then please PM me.

There is one particular aspect I wish to convey about these fleet lists. There will be an equal number of ships at each PL available to each fleet... except for the Akorans will have the only Armageddon level ship available until I write the first suppliment.
