Interesting drawing though... I hadn't realised the secondary turrets were also painted yellow. And there seems to be more wooden deck and less painted metal than I had thought. And the black/white stripes don't carry on over the superstructure...

Now, should I go repaint my mini?

Nope, the Bismark was unique in that particular quirk, I think, but it is accurate - as shown by underwater cameras when they found the wreck!

Gatchaman. I'm watching the originals these days on DVD. Next comes Armoured Trooper VOTOMS.

One day my anime tastes will reach the 1980s...

SBB Yamato happens to be my favourite anime of all time (well, it was until I watched it again... wow, has it aged badly..)

As JayRider suggests, as of Armageddon, EVERY ship can get the bonus on one weapon system apiece against the target (not just ones in the Pentacon).

Navwar, for example, is fairly inexpensive but poor in detail and quality of the casting, that varies from model to model it is not even consistent on a given model. And I know as I have them.. Have you actually seen Navwar ships, or are you going by the photos? I would never say they are lacking i...

I've heard the best way to get them is from Spirit Games (who have a deservedly excellent reputation) They are good, the website is fully functional, if a bit crude by some standards. If they're out of stock of some item, they have to order it from Navwar, so there could be a delay, but it is the e...

Planets DO block line of sight, unless one ship is on top of the planet.

Id dissagree that its more like the B5 series in all honesty, I still think B5Wars had the better 'feel' frankly and was at heart a better game, but ACTA has alot going for it, mainly that you can play a game in less than a week :P B5Wars was like the series, with the DVDs running in frame-by-frame...

Since this is rulesmasters, the RULE should be given. The book says that if it is in arc then it can be shot at. If both targets are lined up in boresight then they can both be shot at, no matter how they ended up getting there. "Declared boresights only" is a house rule. Agreed. However you declar...

The Shyarie are ok if you have a Lakara (to re-role the beam) or are fighting Minbari but as they only have the relatively useless comms disruptors they aren't much use otherwise. Use them against ships which have just suffered critical effects. They make Damage Control almost, if not totally, impo...

Quad Damage isn't unbalancing because of WHO gets it. I didn't even find it first time I read the playtest rules. It is not, by any measure, widespread.
