Just give me a Morden fig and I shall be a happy man. Try finding the Harlequin Miniatures "B5 Series 2 Collectors Box 4 - B 5204", it contains a Mr. Morden miniature. And while they are no longer in production, sometimes you can find 'em (if you're very lucky)... Good thing I got them all while I ...

I think he meant the old "Harlequin" miniatures - from Kosh to Londo, from Sinclair to the Gaim Ambassador, from Morden to Ivanoca, they did many of the major (and minor) characters we saw on B5 before they lost the license when the4y became "Icon Miniatures" And if Mongoose can get their molds (or ...

Oh ye of little faith... :wink: OK, I admit the the ShadowScouts are a bit difficult. Not to assemble, but to assemble in a way that keeps them assembled! (as those spines sure like to break off at the slightest touch if you just glue them on) I used my trusty 1mm drill and clipped off metal nails t...

Well... I for one certainly hope for more supplements like TFT and ITC! They were both rather excellent (not only giving a few nice adventures tied into a campaign, but also providing hints how to link PC's into events that take place during episodes - just the sort of thing I like... actually those...

It is already available. It is called 'The Zocalo'. Well... actually not. "The Zocalo" has a really, really nice section on weaponry... but only new stuff not seen in other supplements. What I really would like one day would be an "Equipmen Guide" which simpy contains every piece of weapon, armor o...

To be fair, it says that she was "one of its founders and benefactors", which could mean that she helped the idea get off the ground back in the 2230s when the idea of any Dilgar surviving was slim, and secretly helped it along since... Actually not really... let me quote: " One of the founders and...

Mine was the same way. Reminds me of when a movie is put on tape/DVD and long shots end up stretched. Same here... I really think that someone in the art department screwed up here. As for the book... well, I like some, and I hate some. The "Merchant & Trader" sections are great! But the Raiders an...

The thing is, straight off we have 4 different environment suits from the series to represent.

Actually only three different Envio-suitsfrom the...

It was most horrible. I used it for background and ran B5 in GURPS and in WEGs Masterbook system until the Mongoose Game came out.
Same here - hated CEE's TBP system, and gone GURPS with the BG. Of course, now I can add all the nifty Mongoose BG to my GURPS conversion...

Is the "star dreadnought" just a new name for the Vorlon heavy cruiser? Yup. Not an new name though - an old one. The ship in question was named "Star Dreadnought" before AoG, though only in certain web-based fan communities (those who made CGI meshes - FYI, all that non-show artwork wasmade with f...

Of course if a sourcebook was to be released detailing that particular period of history more extensively... Give them time. Sooner or later Mongoose will run out of stuff to cover in the "current" (meaning B5-ere and connected time periods) B5 universe, and then they might take a closer look at th...

I have just seen the first of the B5 deck plans, the Hyperion. Now, it won't be in the shops until late next month but, I promise - it will impress the hell out of you!

However, we know that E-Mines are 150MT(AOG), and they're an area anti-fighter weapon. And we also "know" that a mere two megatons are enough to kill a sharlin (In the Beginning; OK, so one 2MT to vaporize a fin and a second to finish the Sharlin off). So I would prefer to consider the source of su...

'Slugthrowers' are not impossible to get on station, Garobaldi had one, "Grey 17 is missing". Not impossible, just illegal. And some types of ammo will be even more illegal (armor-piercing, since that's most dangerous, decompression-wise) One of the things about PPG's is that they fire shots "made ...
