  1. +1 for the Ryuo!! Awesome model. I got two, and don't even play EotBS :-/
  2. So yeah, @Spartan Mike!! The Covenant obviously needs a wreckage recovery vehicle, stat!! Or their drones need to do like the evil bots in "I, Robot", and throw themselves into the fire when vanquished, destroying all evidence!!
  3. Ahhhh... THERE we go. Thanks. I was just going off the fluff from the v2.5 rule book - haven't got the Sirocco book, and didn't look at the blog post. My bad
  4. So, looking over the new Egyptians ORBAT, they seem a bit ... "Covenanty"? A big ol' Energy Blast (that stands to wreck anything bunched up first turn), Energy Beams, and Drones. Better Drones than the CoA has (Swarm Tactics as standard, with the Egyptian Carrier handing out "(Hunter (All) +2)" at 12". WTF? The Euclid @300pts only sports (Hunter (All) +1, Acrobatic Pilots, Swarm Tactics), at 8" range. The fluff for Egypt doesn't mention anything about an Egypt-Antarctican alliance, so what's up with sharing/improving upon the Covenant tech? <grumble grumble grumble, "Power Creep...something...New Shiny Syndrome...grumble> ;-)
  5. I still can't see it! Damn my eyes?! Any more instructions on how to find this thing? Thanks!
  6. HURRAH!! Nice nagging, Mike! You gotz skillz!! ;-)
  7. Not everybody is going to see the text about what they've missed, and be a little put off - I realise that - but i still think some might. And the renders of the STO Fortress came quite in the piece, so extending the offer of the free BBs would certainly be a nice move. If Spartan did that tho, they should definitely make a big thing of the extension, rather than just remove the date limit. Gotta let people know that the goodies exist if they're going to buy them up!
  8. @Spartan Games I've noticed that the pre-orders for the above pretty much stalled after the Tuesday 27th deadline for the free BBs, and i reckon it might partly be because the text is still on there about ordering before June 27th to get said extra free stuff. If anyone else is a bit like me, it can be a little off-putting to see what free stuff you've missed out on, so why not remove that text, since it no longer applies? It would also be a great help to potential purchasers to have pictures included of the free stuff they would still get - the Quebec airship, the Sibrand Metzger and the STO fortress. Relying on people to themselves go searching for pictures of these things is asking them to do more work, and in sales it's usually about making the choice to spend as easy as possible for the client. Plus, all those extras are AMAZING!!! Why not showcase them, and let people get as excited about owning them as you guys are about having made them! Baz.

  10. It's a way of life, my friend! I'm so indoctrinated now, just the smell of a good brew can bring about the effect...
  11. If I'm not wrong, it's the one from GW's legacy game, "Dreadfleet". It's quite commonly used for DW, and Dreadfleet can be picked up on eBay, but the price might be an issue. No idea how big the mat is, tho.
  12. I'm very wide-eyed and salivating over the Menedaius' 12AD Faster Torpedoes. Should be good for a solid "WTF?!" face from most opponents the first time they feel it ;-)
  13. I just read your batrep for that game, and saw that you'd corrected it for the clarification, so apologies for my misunderstanding! Good looking batrep, too - thanks for posting!
  14. Wait - didn't you say: "I just finished a game with 3 more squadrons, via lost SAS from multiple squadrons, than I started with." In which case, you were playing it incorrectly. Spartan Mike said above: "Only a Completely Lost / Wiped-out SAS Squadron may be re-built. No cheeky fresh face additional teams!" Isn't that why your game took so long? You were correctly playing the activation side of Rebuilding, but you can't just keep spewing out new SAS from odds & ends of SAW in the Scrapyard. I guess it's now tactically legit to try to reduce your opponent's SAS down to 1 or 2 SAW, but never wipe them out completely, thus denying them the chance to Rebuild.
  15. Nope. Mike's staying tight-lipped about that! The latest blog hints at more Raj models to come soon, tho.
