You have it exactly right Grenadier. I often squadron ships for the benefits you mentioned. At the last tournament I squadroned 3 Tinashis and a Shantavi for a massive barrage, and was able to destroy a Vorlon Lt. Cruiser before it got a second shot off. Scary target and had to go. Terrain can effec...

Ramping up for another batch...have 24 units preordered. Please contact me if you wish to place an order, that way I'll know how many to cast. We're probably looking at September/October...

Thanks!

As the attacker, all you really have to do is destroy two of the defender's ships and jump out/ get off the board, right? This is assuming the attacker suffers no ship losses - at least this is what I understand after calculating VPs. In a patrol level scenario (of which I have one coming up, which ...

As the defender, can a ship with fighters start with those fighters launched?

Yeah, the newer model is the smaller one...to correct the oversizedness of the current ACTA Olympus. Nice mini despite its size.

Agreed, a more developed campaign system would be nice. If done properly I'm sure it would sell. Hint, hint.

Back when the game was released I went with Minbari due to the Sharlin - my favorite from the show. Omegas were cool too, so EA came second. Vorlon cruisers I loved, so they came third, although I don't enjoy how they play. pak'ma'ra' - never really saw their ships in the show, but I needed a new fl...

Another option would be to say that ships don't take criticals until they have suffered at least 1/2 damage, this would mean that big ships are more resiliant than small ships to criticals due to the number of damage points. Or if that is too good, they ignore special effects from criticals just ta...

Severed Dreams is amazing.

And Now for a Word gets an honorable mention. I like the media coverage of the story and leads up to the great battle between the Primus and G'quan. This episode hooked me on B5.

Must...resist..... starting....old argument.......(use shattner type cadence) Dave ? What difference does base size make? I kid. Using middle of the model isn't exact.

Haha - officially it is not legal, although locals have used it in friendly games. Maybe even a tournament or two. There were talks of Mongoose purchasing the molds of the design, but the original designer never got back to them (I just sculpted it based on his design). Another batch may be in the w...

Welcom Pavlov!

Boresites must target the stem of the opposing model. This is declared after moving the boresite equipped ship, so there's no ambiguity when it comes to shooting. Gentlemen's agreement as the game has evolved, I don't think it's explicitly written out in the rulebook.
