Re: Block War Update!

There are new rules in there though.

Can't find any changes to zombies though. Is it in the mob rules?

Re: Future of 2000AD Gaming

While it would be great starting with Sovs and Judges, Greg is right that they are very similar forces on the face of it. However you can create differentiation, and Rad Sweepers and Sentinoid squads vs Patwagons and Lawmaster judges would do that a bit. I would recommend adding some sort of less el...

Re: Future of 2000AD Gaming

I'd be in for this. I was going to pester you about more Sov judge and Sentinoid poses anyway next time I saw you, as well as chew over a couple of ideas for Sov units for the apocalypse war. Gap of a few months to allow people to get the last of the Dredd and the Rogue trooper stuff. I'd also say g...

Re: F6 stats

I know there is at least 3 in varying stages of sorted. Once 2 is out I'll send Matt another pile of stuff (waiting to see the F6 stats to complete an article).

Email Matt and ask. If he's got it in stock, a couple of days.

Re: [ACTA:SF] Question about retail packed Starline 2500 min

Only time I've ever gotten bagged ships is squadron/fleet boxes and by shaking them out of Matt when I've been at Mongoose Towers.

Re: 2 Heavy Cruisers or 2 Fast cruisers

And ditto dreadnoughts. I'm struggling to think of an F&E game where there hasn't been a multi DN/BC fleet knocking around several times (and not just the Lyrans). X-cruisers replace them soon enough, but Romulans are another fleet that can get very Compot dense (off the top of my head I think Gorn ...

Re: 2 Heavy Cruisers or 2 Fast cruisers

When the Star Tiger comes out you can go with 2 Star Tigers, a Manta Ray and a Wolverine in 1000 points.

Which should be pretty SickNasty.

Re: Question from a New Guy/Old Gamer

I think you're thinking of Tyrel Lohr. I did 50 or so of the Star Trek SCSs though, covering a lot of the TOS and movies period, mainly Klingons and Cardassians.

Re: Question from a New Guy/Old Gamer

I can't even remember making Star Trek counters, though I do remember making some of B5 counters to be compatible with the SFB hex maps. I still think it's a shame B5W is a dead game, I really liked it. I tried to keep releasing stuff after AoG closed their doors, but RL got heavily in the way and I...

Re: 2 Heavy Cruisers or 2 Fast cruisers

It's entirely a matter of personal preference, however I'd never take just 1 fast cruiser. If you want to take fast cruisers, take two.

Or

BC
2xCA
NCL
CL
FFB

Do you know what fleet you're up against?

Re: Question from a New Guy/Old Gamer

Half of miniatures gaming is the miniatures, and a look in the painted minis thread will show you various paint jobs of various ships. You can start one of two ways. Get the hard back book or get a fleet box with the mini rulebook in. I went the hardback book route, though I combined it with two fle...

Re: [ACTA:SF] Anyone use any of the new units from FleetUpda

I played the Star Tiger at Mongoose towers, and found it to be a very nice piece of kit. Are you able to give us any quick overview on how it differs from a standard Dreadnought? (Usual disclaimers about stats possibly changing in the final release apply, etc ;)) It doesn't have as much damage as t...

Re: Four New Ships for A Call to Arms: Star Fleet

It's been suggested before (the notion of a booster fleet box) and with the additional ships in the next supplement, we might have a good opportunity to hassle Matt about it.

That or squadron bags for cruisers/DWs.
