  1. I'm working on getting my impressions up I have just been really busy since getting back from Gen Con. A quick note Aquans are fine.
  2. You have my attention. @Spartan Neil I really appreciate your attention to the communities wants and needs. If these come online I will certainly back the Kickstarter as soon as I can after Gen Con. Thank you. As for the Civilian Ships, I'm referring to the original three models.
  3. @Spartan Neil Things I would buy in a heartbeat if made available : The Medusa - we've had this discussion before and it seems I'm not the only one. The Civilian Ships - everyone could use these for scenarios and I'm sure they'd help bolster the sales of future campaign books. Dimensional Gate and Anethama Probe - Again, these would be useful for campaigns for those that do not wish to order the Overseer box set (such as me, I don't like Directorate) Saurian Battleships Station - I know it's new and a Kickstarter model but I'd purchase it separately if I could. To reiterate, I'd buy each of these the moment they became available....I'm sure I'm not the only one, right?
  4. We may see a first draft in pdf form but the rules are far from complete from what I've seen here. I wouldn't expect a print or final version for at least 3-6 months
  5. Repair Battleships and Medical Ships for Aquans? Seems uninspired. I'd rather take something that's sure to take out an enemy ship rather than something that might save one of mine. I can't wait for my opponent to field one so I can focus down his other ships before they have a chance to do their job and leave them neutered with nothing but repair and Medical Ships for an easy win for me. Torpedo cruisers, now that I like. Where are the gunships, light cruisers, etc? I wish this Kickstarter had something to get excited about but I'm still waiting. I'm holding out hope but it seems bleek. I really want this Kickstarter to do well along with Spartan. I hope they can pull it out.
  6. Balanced? Unlikely. I'll use my Aquan +3 FT bonus to win the roll and choose defender every time to get the boost in CO...or, I'll roll low and still at least have better initiative advantage. Something doesn't seem right here.
  7. This 100%. I don't know that I'm interested in the boxed set although I'm highly interested in the 3D terrain, acrylic tokens, campaign books and scenic models.This is what I like. I wanted to put some positive comments out before I mentioned my concerns. Unfortunately, they made THE classic Kickstarter mistake, that of having exclusive models available only to those that throw the most money at them and are elite enough to get. Some of us are on a budget. Some of us will have just spent a lot of money at Gen Con, not a couple weeks earlier (such bad timing). These are things that will weigh on my mind as I decide whether I want to back this at any level. The rules are in such a state of flux right now that this will surely be delayed in shipping. Also, it's very concerning that I heard about this here and not on their home web page where there is nothing about this. I'm very confused by this in particular. I was just starting to regain some confidence in Spartan and I'd like it to continue so.... I'd like to see @Spartan Neil address some of the concerns I have here and that of others. There's a lot here to like but also some things that I'm genuinely concerned about. I'm looking forward to the response. Thank you in advance. We love Spartan and want to see it succeed, all the best.
  8. Saw the blog but totally missed the links... Thanks!
  9. Come at me, filthy air breather!
  10. Well this might have talked me into eventually picking it up, just wish I had something to do with those Directorate ships, ugh.
  11. @Spartan_FA_Mike The volume of information and feedback has been such that by the time I start to consider one issue another is brought up so I completely understand. I'm looking forward to bringing my Aquans to Gen Con and testing some of these new rules. I'll be there with my fleet, space mat and terrain on Thursday so be ready!
  12. @Polaris Thanks for posting those stats! I really appreciate seeing them. I'm assuming, then, there is a scenario included with the box set?
  13. @Spartan Neil So two questions....what is the ship by the dimensional gate and is there a way to get the dimensional gate and that ship separately? I'd buy the box as there are Aquan models I don't have but I don't want the Directorate models.
  14. I thought Terrans for shield tech from the Aquans...I know I read this somewhere.
  15. They're are so many balance issues here that I don't know where to begin. These are going to require EXTENSIVE play testing to find all the broken interactions. Honor the Charter : Never take a disorder marker? I don't think this needs explanation. Focused Shield Harmonics : This is beyond broken. +2 shields for free in a 1000 point plus engagement? How about adding Honor the Charter to Focused Shield Harmonics? Viola, an unkillable Dreadnought. Marked for an Honorable Death : Sure, let's throw this on a squadron in a close game on the last turn when you know it's going down. This can't even be balanced Impossible Manuever : Uhm, yeah, as an Aquan player I'm using this a lot. Not trying to shoot my faction in the foot, but damn. Proscribed Repair Systems : Seriously? This is easily abused. These abilities should be reserved to the ships the MAR is attached to for balance reasons. Pasted from a text editor and I don't know how to change the text size help!
