  1. It would be nice if it didn't have to be house ruled though. It's easy enough to agree with an opponent to a small scale game, you could even just use a takforce box with armada rules, but it would be nice to have official "skirmish" rules
  2. I still want to see a level below patrol fleet, say 500 points minimum 1 medium sq 1 small sq. Something in the intended scale of taskforce but within the FSA rule set.
  3. I'm not suure if you're allowed to tell me this, but I'm looking at a taskforce box and I want to confirm that the two squadrons in there will be classed as small and medium inder the new rules before I do.
  4. Can we have the info about the core expansion boxes ASAP? While I'd really like one it's a pretty significant investment for something I haven't seen, and if I'm going to get one it's something I'm going to have to budget for.
  5. I'll be pledging for the books and tokens at least, can't see a down side to that.
  6. That's what the rulebook says, but it never said what the "ground" scale actually is.
  7. Sorry, I should have said that better, I meant like 1:50000. It's just that when I started looking at this game I had an image of battles taking place throughout a solar system, but the more I learn the more it feels like I'm fighting between the orbit of two moons. I'd be happy with a thematic answer rather than a a specific scale.
  8. How they balance the nerfed cloak would surely depend on what they've done with stealth and regeneration. It would be nice to have something more thematic than just upping the dr and cr
  9. I remember seeing new new cloak rules mentioned, but I can't remember where. Could someone clarify those rules here, or atleast point to where they are? Clarification on stealth would be nice too.
  10. Is there actually a board scale that the terrain is based on? Why do asteroids come in clumps rather than bands? I know it would be a complete departure from previous rules, but so are the three boardwide effects. Are planets for system wars scenarios still going to be covered separately?
  11. I did intend to get the task force set anyway, but that combined with a starter set would have given me the ships to man both sides of a good size game, which is a serious consideration when most of my gaming friends still focus on GW products. Now I have to justify a patrol fleet to my wife that she can see doesn't contain ships I currently collect. Its also disappointing that relthoza won't get another T1 that can be used at patrol fleet level
  12. So I believe this is officially dead, which is a shame because I would have really liked an excuse to collect sorylian as well as relthoza.
  13. Is any of this stuff covered in the faction books? For a sci-fi IP FSA seems really light on detail. Which Bond is it? Even old Mcguyver doesn't beat Sean Connery. I'm so glad I used a linux system for my ships computers.
  14. I've been looking at the boarding rules very closely for the last couple of hours. I think the SRS option is good, it eliminates a small amount of text in the rule book and consolidates the two methods of boarding, as well as eliminating the need to track whether or not a ship has boarded this game. It may lead to a higher density of SRS tokens, but I don't think it would be to an extent that it would cause a gameplay problem.
  15. I've started another thread to continue this if you want Frans, but if you wouldn't mind getting thing rolling again there that would be great, as my technical skills are quite lacking in regards to the forum and I have no idea how to quote between threads.
