Re: [ACTA:SF] Looking for some fighter rules

A testament to how drugged up I was at the time I wrote the fighter rules is that I pretty much forgot I wrote them. BillClo messaged me, when I've digested what he's been up to I'll revise fighter rules again and put some stuff out. I'm horrifically ill at the moment with a near terminal case of th...

Re: Battlefield Evolution Miniatures!

Not sure how feasible this is (Considering the big M's workload) Create a rulebook for Evolution ONLY. - Include stats for standard units (grunts, tanks, aircraft, patrol boats, etc) Use already commercially available models (Say 1:72 - 1:76 (OO) scale) as units This might actually be an idea, it w...

OK, it hasn't worked for me the two times I've tried to register. Are you a .co.uk or a .com address?

On the subject of starter sets I've been looking with a certain amount of envy at the Dropzone Commander set. Plastics for the most common ships (essentially doing a plastic squadron sprue with heavy cruiser, light cruiser, 2-3 small ships) would leave metals and resins for the bigger ticket items ...

Has there been confirmation of a new rulebook, because if there has been, I've got some giant emails to send to Matt.

Re: Paint club

I know these are dated, but here's my most recent work. I'm not very good, but I'm practicing! My next step would be to wash the metal areas (can't tell from the picture if they have been or not) and maybe use masking tape to cover plenty of the red areas and paint the exposed black to give the Nar...

Re: Federation Destroyer minis - DDL and DDF

I'm always impressed with what you did with your resin stuff.

On the size of your collection, are you going to be playing the Klingon/Federation front on 1-2-1 scale?

Re: Tugs

At some point yes, along with everything else.

I suggest ages ago doing the FJ ships as their own separate boxed set with a downloadable little rules booklet, which should split everything off and make the licensing simpler.

Re: photon multi 4 vs critical

No, the photon rolls four damage dice for a non-overloaded hit. If any of these are a 6, it scores a critical. Because photons are Devastating +1, that critical goes up two levels, applying the affects for both. Ships have higher than anti drone 1 because on the roll of a 1 you run out of anti-drone...

Paint club

It occurred to me that the forum is a little quiet, and we probably all have massive lead piles to get through, so why don't we do a monthly painting thread for getting through our Klingons/Noble Armada/Judge Dredd/Victory at Sea/etc?

Would anyone be up for a specifically Mongoose painting thread?

Re: Are we ever going to see more Star Fleet minis?

I got them off Matt at Mongoose HQ to be fair. I'm painting some GZG civilian ships and some Noble Armada this month, but next month I'll be painting the SFU civvies. I'll put pictures up then.

I was hoping the box with the battlestation would be available at the tournament.
