Vote with comments: 1 - Ipsha Would be a really nice addition to the B5 fleets. Not too hard to do either. 2 - Pak'ma'ra Need a fleet too. I heard rumours about redesign... no problem with it, Pak ships could be done as "armed transports" instead of purpose-buiolt warships... as long as they are sti...

Yeah, yeah, somehow the "one-tenth" character before the "mm" was left behind when I copied all that from my word file...

Again, all figures are in 1/10 mm!

Well, the Technomage Trilogy sheds some light on this shady matter. Basically, no Shadows are needed on their ships, as those ships are controlled by the CPU (=younger race sentient) which in turn is conditioned through the implants (those things on their heads) to follow the commands of a gigantic ...

So you have Armageddon already? I think you just became the most envied person on these boards! Arrived this week. Sometimes preordering from Mongoose directly is Really fast!

OK, the old question... what do I want? (miniature-wise that is) > Civilian Vessels , and not only EA. From the small transports we see docking on B5 (mini ought to be half a whitestar in size or so) to minbari, narn, centauri, brakiri, etc. versions of freighters and passenger ships (and of course ...

Easy Errata:

Normal ammo has the same legality class as the gun it's for. (well, at least that's how it works without interference from the error demons) Some ammo types may have worse legality rating (for example a flare gun fires flares - bot ought to be completely legal; bit there might also be a slug round u...

Yes, but I wish there were...
...more accurate (current Narns using EA-style guns instead of Narn style guns, Minbari using Valen's War-style handguns -see WWE, part 2- instead of the slender modern handguns)

But make me a few Shadows and I will forgive all those things!

With any RPG (or wargame) I always treat the rules as a set of guidelines to help me simulate the "physics" of the universe. When the rules don't properly cover something I need to exist in my universe, I declare the rules as wrong and tweak them. Exactly! Remember this - whenever GM and rules disa...

I agree about the weapons swap, I would like a little note beside each weapon, that states a weapons minimum size craft... Hmmm... yes, that would work. For most things... but not for all.

Most likely that'd be me.

And before you ask, yes, I also got the Drakh book already... two weeks ago in fact. Pre-ordering directly from Mongoose is fun!

Of course, I don't Always get is this quickly - sometimes, but not always.

True Frobi, but the Narn did buy weapons from Human arms dealers during their war of retribution, so it's not impossible for a Narn to be carrying an EA PPG. Not impossible - yes.

Some of the miniatures we really nice, some were awful - weirdly enough the main characters were the dodgier ones, and some of the ancillary characters were spot on. I think that is because they made the major caracters first, when their sculptors had a bit more learning to do (remember the "promo"...
