I have all 3 IS books, and some of the models. What more can I do to keep this game going? I would love to see more IS books, even if they were just background and not rules. Ditto that. I'd buy more minis, but there aren't enough classes available to actually make a fleet of any size, and many nat...

This sounds like a large enough topic that a separate forum might be a good idea. Agreed. Consensus on the degree of conformation between SFB and Starmada also sounds like a good idea. If the intent here is to "sell" Starmada players on the SFB universe (and minis, which is where the mone...

Seems like the first thing we need to settle on is movement, and then work back from there. Speeds in SFB range from 0 to 32 (ships max at 31) with most undamaged ships mantaining "combat" speeds somewhere in the 20's, maybe slower if they're arming a lot of overloaded weapons (that's anot...

Two months already!

Bah! Not a post in two months! Still no new book! At this rate we'll never get to the Terran Combined Services' counter-invasion of Mars!

Thinking about the adaptation: Federation and Klingons will be fairly easy....special rule for 2 turn weapons? Multi-turn weapons are pretty much mandatory for any SFB simulation. Easy enough to do, though. Orions - Option Mounts...otherwise easy There's also engine doubling (which should boost spee...

That's not a spoiler, and it's not accurate either. SFB canon says no Galactic Power (Federation or otherwise) was ever certain about exactly what the Andro's were, in part because the only "crew" ever encountered, even on occupied planets, were robots. They never decided for certain wheth...

I'm committed to pewter minis on this game myself. Cardstock just doesn't do it for me.

Thank heavens for Brigade, eh? :)

Starship minis on ebay

Occurs to me I should mention this here, since they'll work fine for Starmada and Starmada/Trek conversions. Currently running 19 auctions worth of Star Fleet Battles minis, including a pile of Klingons, a fair number of Gorns, and a smattering of Fed and Tholian hulls. Prices are still pretty reaso...

Hmmm...comparing this to the similar "cinematic" system in Full Thrust, your speeds will tend to vary more from game turn to game turn because you're not spending thrust to turn, and your end positions are much more unpredictable because your turns aren't seperated by set distances and sid...
