No. The only time the escorts intercept attacking fighters is when they attack the escorted ship. Fighters performing Scanners To Full shouldn't be attacked. They don't need to get that close anyway. The primary flight only needs to be 4" away and any flights joining in can be up to 6" away. Good to...

I'd expect that the "Early Years" fleet list that will be in Armageddon will replace the one in the Earth/Minbari war book anyway and that should correct any oversights.

Yes. I just thought that Reaverman was confusing the two and didn't feel the need to correct him (or his spelling of sporran).

And it worked better for my joke.

The dirk is actually kept in the sock. We've got much larger weapons under our kilts :wink:

I'm fairly certain that it should be a Battle level ship, given the increased armour and improved weapons fit. I think this was answered when the book originally came out but I'm not 100% certain. There also seems to be a mistake with the Orestes Dreadnought stats in that it has a F arc laser and bo...

How about a hybrid ? That is, a plastic base and a metal shaft (to keep the price down). I ended up replacing all of the shafts on the larger models as they tend to snap a bit more often than I'd like. Especially when you drop them :(

Probably a redundant post, but remember that you cannot dodge certain weapons (those with Energy Mine or Anti-Fighter traits)

That might be down to some folk (like myself) having EA as well as several other races. That and you can use them to fight each other.

Minbari colour scheme

Has anyone got any tips on painting Minbari ?

I've just painted mine the light blue colour you see the Sharlin on the products page for now, but I can't decide on the best way to approximate the ships on the show. I normally use Games Workshop and Revell acrylics.

(Please keep it simple !)

I started off with Earth Alliance and Minbari fleets (Minbari War era) and have just recently got a Brakiri fleet finished (whenever my Brokados arrives that is)
