The Vorlons & shadows HAVE bigger ships? (other then the planet killer and cloud) What do they look like? Look towards AoG FA stuff (no release in full scale, sorry... but mongoose could do them...). The Vorlon DN was just a little bigger heavy cruiser with eight instead of four tentacles and a rea...

It means they will soon have to replace the production molds. Happens all the time... well, occasionally. As long as the master molds are kept safe it is not a bad sign for the future... And if you get a mini that is suffering too badly from faulty molds (you know, lumps of metal where there should ...

It was commented during Armageddon playtesting that a major reason why there was no VPK in that book was the lack of a good mini (the AoG one being considered inadequate). Take it from one who has the thing - it IS inadequate. Looks like a little lost lamb among the other vorlon minis... And while ...

Shadows... no variation at all. Which, if you think about it, is a bit odd really... Yup. The one most chaotic race has no variation at all. Of course, it could be that they do have a lot of variations - just not in a part of the spectrum visible by human eyes... In any case, I like their basic pai...

Well, it all depends on the race in question... For the EA we have an "official" paint sceme, well, two actually. "Light grey with blue tim" (Hyperion) and "dark gray" (Omega etc.). And we have indication that the coloured trim does not have to be blue (B1 was grey & red, B4 grey & green, B5 grey & ...

But, how can they be this way when their biggest shame is telling lies? How can the GM reconcile the Minbari on one side always striving to be truthful & honest & being mysterious & enigmatic on the other hand?

Thanks! (Even though I would have preferred the ship plan as JPG or GIF file, so I can attempt to fill the unsightly green spaces with some ship-corridor-like grafix...)

Well, I'd buy it. Never really liked the CtA rules - I always prefered more detailed small battles over quick-and-dirty big fleet engagements. And it would use the current mini line... Mongoose could also make a "Dogfight" kind of game, with the old AoG "B5W full scale" fighter minis. I'd buy that t...

On laser stuff missing, that is due to the slow rate of turrets being able to swivel, not a shortcoming of the laser itself, targeting lasers should to have seriously small and fast-track turrets, as the "weapon" is alot smaller and more self contained. Well, actually that would depend on the range...

Only the rockets, i mean if you can buy bucketloads of fighter targeting computers, you should be able to put them into rocket warheads to make em fly down a guided path by a targeting laser or something. Still wouldn't be good at any decent (space combat) range. After all, even lightspeed laser we...

What the Raiders need are just a few more choices at the lower levels such as over armed freighters at Patrol and small gunboats at Skirmish. This would just give them a few more options than a Strike Carrier/Battlewagon swarm. True! That's exactly it. And of course their strike carrier should be r...

Though i disagree on the Pak issue. They should be competitive. Never wrote they shouldn't be. Just not in the "combat-oriented" way. They ARE scavengers after all... good thing that with the exception of the Fuser, all AoG minis (OK, the four there are) have no visible weapons! So they can be reus...

True. Basically there is no definite info on exactly when the Shadows started growing their "drone" ships. However, it IS known that at the start of the Kirishiac war all the ancients had their "Primoridal" ships (which include the more powerful ShadowShip versions still piloted by them personally) ...
