Other than Hull 6 skirmish level ships and the +1/+2 initiative can you explain your feelings on what the advantages are to the Drazi? No, I can't, because the changes to the rules that advantage them have not yet been revealed by Matt - and until they are, I won't be saying. There will be changes ...

so then, Don't take this wrong Wulf, i'm just thinking aloud so to speak Drazi get advantages, player and tester Wulf The Drazi have not yet been playtested, they may be in the next batch. None of the Drazi ships have been substantially (and often not even slightly) been changed. The rules themselv...

Nice. That's a whole load of figures there. I take it you use FA scale figs almost exclusively? Do you own any of the Dilgar FA stuff, I've just bought a load of em and was wondering if they were good representations of the Normal scale. http://www.wulf.demon.co.uk/Dilgar.jpg Generally they are exc...

It shouldn't be the kind of ship you see in a normal fleet, the way to enforce this is to make it underpowered (not useless, but a worse choice than others). It should be used for specific scenarios only. Personally, I'd make it a civilian ship. Despite it's obvious military connections, this would...

The main question I originally had was, did anyone else use FA scale figures and did they have any pics of them in combat? I do, I used to have a thread giving a complete batrep on playtesting Shadow Dancing with FA scale ships, but it seems to have gone. Here are the pics It was a struggle to fit ...

You discovered the best all-around reference book for naval forces in WW2 sitting there on your shelf? It was probably the 'Book of the Month' at some time when I wasn't interested in boaty things. Since I invariably forgot to cancel them, I ended up with a lot of Books of the Month before I cancel...

well, Matt did state in a post that he thought the drakh mo ship or carrier was next, which given how long the moship has been out of production seemed pretty fair.

But that is my point you see you bought the game liked it as I must add I do. But then you go out and buy ships to match the lists in the rule book. Perhaps you should have informed Mongoose of your preferences before the book was printed, and they could have designed it to your specifications? I c...

All the missing ships. I have large amounts of ships that I can't use because they haven't included the class in the rules.

If you COULDN'T sink the Hood catastrophically with one shot the system would be inaccurate.
