500 Point Game

I hope this evening to play a 500 point game against the Feds. My fleet choice is the Klinks and I think I have the perfect selection, but I am open to suggestions. My current fleet is: C7 - Heavy Battlecruiser = 240 D5W - New Heavy Cruiser = 185 E4 - Light Frigate = 75 500 points on the nose, but i...

I'm not wondering why the D7 is inaccurate, I'm wondering where the hell my D7 miniatures are! :lol:

Re: Klingons on the Starboard Bow - UK Tournament March 17th

If we provide our whooshing sounds, does that mean we get our money back? Seriously though, if we can't make the new date; can we have our money back or will you give us a credit towards the next tourney? To be honest Matt, this is all getting a bit frustrating, we want to play, but it seems we can'...

Re: NEw new new Errata? What is going on?

I totally agree, the errata are not complex - I was referring to the rules becoming overly complex in themselves!

If they start talking about power allocation, then adios!

I might as well go back to SFB - At least they had counters to play with! :twisted:

Re: Latest News on A Call to Arms: Star Fleet

Thanks Jean.

Personally I don't care about the medium, as long as they are good quality and more importantly they are available!

Re: Split game/community SFB ACTA

Is it me or is this all going to hell in a hand-basket! :x

All I want is a nice simple game with some nice miniatures to play it with - Is that too much to ask? :evil:

Re: NEw new new Errata? What is going on?

The thing that attracted me in the first place to ACTA was its simplicity, especially after playing SFB. If it starts getting silly again, then all that is going to happen is that people are going to leave it for something else and both Mongoose and ADB will be left with some very expensive miniatur...

Re: Serious question about the tournament in March

A very good question! I too was looking to play Klingons at the tourney, maybe even Kzinti, but with no sight of fleet boxes on the horizon; will we be able to play substitute ships or counters?

I hear that ADB do a nice range in counters, would we be able to use those on the day?

Re: Additional Delays? What is going on

I have pre-order fleet boxes of Feds, Klinks, Kzinti and Gorn!

Now whilst I don't expect to receive the Gorn and Kzinti any time soon, I am hoping to see the Feds and Klinks soon, hopefully before the tourney in March!

Re: New Errata

Just one very quick thing Matt, when you are making changes to the points values of the ships, please can you quote the new points value for the ship at the end. I note on the Klingon D7C variant, you state +30 points, but not a value; is this from the last errata, or to be added in the new errata. ...

Gorn Squadron Box Set

Hi There,

I have just been placing an order for some ACTA:SF mini's and I noted that there was no Squadron Box Set for the Gorn available.

Can you advise when this will be available to order?

Many thanks

Drones Vs. Shields

Simple Question: Do drones ignore shields? To quote the book, it states: "With the damage spread around the entire target ship, no rolls are made to see if the weapon penetrates shields" This infers that drones ignore shields - Is this correct as I have a very annoyed Fed Admiral who has just lost a...

Re: ACTA Errata / FAQ Posted - feedback anyone

Just a quick point, but what does: "D7C Variant: Completely replace entry with; Replace Turret fire arc Phaser-2 with Phaser-1, change Marines 8, Anti-Drone 2, Transporters 7, add Command +1. +30 Points" With what? Is this meant to be the same weapons suite as the D7, but with the T Phaser-2 now a P...

ACTA:SF @ Warpcon - Cork 27th - 30th Jan 2012

Is anyone on the forum going to be at Warpcon in Cork at the end of the month?

If so, do they fancy catching up for a game of ACTA:SF, as I shall be taking some ships and the rules with me?

Drop me a PM to arrange.

Cheers.

Defensive Fire

Here's a quick question with regards to defensive fire against drones.

In the rulebook it states when conducting defensive fire against shuttles, they get a -1 to hit due to their small size.

Would this also apply to drones, which I would suggest would be considerably smaller than shuttles?
