  1. 5, And the ending left us on a cliff hanger, leaving us waiting for more. .​
  2. Started with wave one, when one of the local war gamer club members asked around who was interested (unfortunately the war gamer club has dissipated). He ended up purchasing four core sets, one for each of us who were interested (he got paid back for each set). I've been playing and collecting and repainting on and off ever since. We now have a group of 10 playing in a social league at the local FLGS, where the owner looks after us really well..
  3. Same here in Australia, I work in the retail industry. It is against the law to refuse to refund or replace. I would think that it would be the same in most countries around the world. However as stated above a little glue will fix a minor production issue. Our local suppliers here only got their Assault carriers yesterday (Christmas eve), and I didn't get in to pick mine up (was working late and they had closed for the holidays) so some of I will have to wait until they reopen after their Christmas break. Those who got theirs for Christmas can let us know how they go in the field. Merry Christmas to all, and all the best for the new year.
  4. With the product on the boat, depending on the speed of the boat, we hopefully shouldn't have too long to wait for a clarification/FAQ.
  5. Has anyone contacted the developers to see if they have anything to say on the matter?
  6. OK. I have re-read the rules reference and the Huge ship rules , and I see where you are coming from. I stand corrected. Yes, it is all about that word free on the card. Thanks, I will await it to be FAQ'd.
  7. In reverse order. The results at the bottom of the card says you (the ship) get either a "free recover action" or a "free reinforce action". These two results are quite specific, and whilst they are free actions, they are "specified free actions", reinforce or recover. To use of either of these two results you spend one energy and perform an action (e.g. Target lock, jam) that is not a "Recover action" or a "Reinforce action", once per round. Where does it say you get a "free action" on the card? Currently, you (the ship) may acquire a free action (e.g. Target Lock) from another ship, or use an action from the action bar as your action to get the "specified free actions" Could the problem be solved by specifying the timing of the action (free or otherwise) used to get the "specified free actions", recover or reinforce, to be in the perform action step?
  8. There are very few players in my area that play any GW products anymore. I'm going to use my 40K/fantasy Collection to improve my painting skills, which I will then use on some of my x-wing collection. I'll then keep the ones I like best, including my imperial knight and slowly sell off the rest (just in case there is a fully revised edition). X-wing is currently my equal favourite, with battletech, both collections currently growing.
  9. Keep up the good works guys. Keep these style of threads going. ObiWonka, it does look like you started something good with your other thread, positivity can be contagious.
  10. I ordered one from my flgs, and ended up taking 2 sets home, along with a few other x-wing goodies.
  11. A long time ago....at a club I used to play at, all the star wars fans, In the group purchased a core set and all other miniature games took a back seat. My 40k/Fantasy collection is now relegated to painting practice to improve my painting skills, till I decide what to do with it. Getting back into Battletech again also.
  12. It's good to see the thinking caps put on again and used constructively.

  14. I play most of my games at home, teaching family members to play, when I'm not practising for band performances. We two FLGS within 1/2 an hour of us, and we have 2 clubs (more or less). Both stores have successfully held small tournaments (in limited space), and one is thinking about setting up a league. Still waiting to hear whether the league will get up and go. One of the Clubs used to play at recently moved from a local school hall to one of the FLGS and from what I have heard in the last couple of days is that the club has ceased to function as it did before the move. Due to a disagreement with the management of the hall where the other club plays, I will not set foot there ever again. I see the benefits of both, but my preference is for the standalone club as described in an above post, where there are gamers only and it is set up and run well or to play at home. (as I work in a retail store, dealing with the public all day, I often don't feel like going to another store to play, where there are both gamers and public/customers) ​
