Thanks Charles/Kenny I have bookmarked that link to read at leisure- may have more questions later! Will look at what I can use to proxy for Elutarins/Liati. A 2nd Balvarin will have to wait until I have the model. I actually have 3 Jutai'- I just don't like the model- it does nt seem very Centauri ...

Ok- i don't mind keeping the Octurion in reserve as flagship for big games. I don't like the Adira model so If I want a big ship it would be Octurion. Taking your advice would leave me the following 5 points War fleet: 2 Dargan Strike Cruiser Battle 4 Primus Battlecruiser Battle 1 Balvarin Carrier R...

Hi How easy would it be for a B5 ACTA newbie to play? I have played a couple of games a couple of years ago, but couple of regulat players have left our local club. There are another couple of guys locally who might play B5 ACTA but not sure. What are the current rulesets? I have 2nd ed rulebook. Wh...

yep- I do have a haven- did nt include it on my list as did nt think worth including a Patrol choice in a 5 points War list. But I can drop it in if I am slightly under on points. I don't have any Altarian models. And only one Balvarin. So my priority would be to make best use of what I have got and...

B5 ACTA Centauri Fleet- advice needed

Hi As my Minbari 5 points War fleet nears finishing (just the tiger stripes to come, which in itself I reckon will be fiddly and time consuming) I have started to think about painting my Centauri. Initially i am looking to have a rounded 5 points War Centauri fleet to have as potential opposition or...

Hi Are photos available anywhere of Court Jester's Centauri? The links in the original ;post are dead and the website listed in his profile is no longer running. Once I finish my Minbari I plan on painting my Centauri and am looking for inspiration. I think I want something a touch darker than the v...

The couple of Minbari Trolligans- undercoated black- happier to work something out.

I don't have any Narn but EA and Centauri are the fleets planning on painting next. I may well have some ships spare as I try to trim my fleets down to 5 points War. I have the EA and Centauri reinforcements box sets, plus a few blisters. Let me know if you are after any ships in particular. Cheers ...

What are the forum rules on selling figures? I have a couple of LONA box sets and some Crusade era EA ships that I will be selling. Which LONA boxed sets are they? I have the Brakiri and Abbai fleet boxes, both shrinkwrapped MIB, plus a few Abbai blisters. (I also have Deazi fleet box but I'm hopin...

Physically the only difference between a Leshath and a Tigara is that the Leshath has a nacelle at the base of the dorsal fin, which the Tigara lacks. This should be easy to add. Otherwise, as Burger says, you could paint it differently - or just treat it as another Tigara variant like the Teshlan,...

Thanks guys- your replies have confirmed my gut reactions when looking at the model scuplts. Yes you're right- I plan on keeping the extra Sharlins just because they are so inconic. And the Tigara / Leshath I liked mainly due to their resemblance to the Sharlin. I was nt sold on the looks of the Nes...
