If it were just me, I would allow it. However, the whole point of painted WYSIWYG miniatures is that your opponent can see, at a glance, exactly what he is facing. It is kind of the honourable thing to do, you know? :)

Well never mind :S

Unless the breakdown of Mongoose players has changed in the last year or so, it would probably be significantly less than half who have a problem. Still, better safe than sorry is still the best approach.

well i would be easy going about it as long as my opponent did not have both classes in the fleet anyway, well i will continuing trying to work with what i have or hope my other order turns up before the weekend (this one, not next weekend)

If only i could have purchased 2 fleet boxes instead of one lol, i would not have this problem

You have an order in for a Strike Cruiser? We are due a delivery a little later this week, I'll see what I can do about bumping you up.

Unfortunatly i dont have an order on for a strike cruiser, though i do for some kilngons ordered mid March, they could turn up in the post anyday now (fingers crossed)

Though not too important i have worked out a new fleet and now i wish i had more battlecruiser lol, oh i best order another 2 fleet boxes to cover all angles :roll:

I'm waiting on a klingon squadron box and a couple of blisters, is it likely this will arrive in time for tourny?

I believe they are already on their way to you (you may see them today). Drop me a line at msprange@mongoosepublishing.com, and I'll get you some proper answers!

Update!

1. Just been to pick up the trophies for the tournament, and very good they look too. There will be prizes above and beyond the trophies, so it is well worth bringing your competition head on Saturday!

2. Will, our graphics guy, is just painting up his very first fleet of miniatures, and will be taking part if an odd number of you show up. I have told him that, if he wins, he doesn't get a prize but I will give him a day off. So make sure you beat him...

3. We have room to squeeze in perhaps 2 or 3 more people, so if you want to get on board, well, the prizes will be very good :)

4. We will have some pre-releases available on the day. However, if there is anything _specific_ you are after from the current range, you have, well, a few hours to let me know!

See you all on Saturday!

Obligatory "JAFO? What does that mean??" ;)

If there's any Federation reinforcement sets on the day, I'll most likely have one.

I know, just taking the mick out of the fact that the question seems to come up every time JAFO is mentioned ;)

I have seen the film a few times, though the train put paid to any sequels.

Though it will be nice to have people pointing out rule interpretations on the day i would prefer to have gamers only, but i could be wrong on that[./color]
