Cold Navy (merged threads)

Recommended Posts

I was all excited for these to come back, since I never got around to buying them initially. But now? There's With Hostile Intent and VBAM turning out really nice minis, plus my still unfinished SFB, B5Wars, and Starblazers stuff.

 

I'll probably pass on them again.

With Hostile Intent are probably the best starship minis out there right now. Crisp sculpts and casts, great design:

The Victory By Any Means minis are not quite as well done, but still lots of fun, and the line has much more variety:

Victory By Any Means has complete rules, With Hostile Intent is still in beta. I really like the WHI rules, it's 3D, but I can actually get my head around it.

More WHI (CAUTION: shameless self promotion)

Oh man, I can't believe you posted these. They look awesome! I've been biding my time on any ships until Cold Navy got back on its feet, but ... I may need these.

Nanite, are those Todd Boyce's minis?

 

Yup. He has someone else doing designs as well. And I'm not bashing Ravenstar's efforts at getting Cold Navy back up and running, don't get me wrong, Chris is a great guy too (what is it about Space Combat games? Everyone I've encountered is so nice!) I've just got plenty of other distractions.

 

Now, Chris' Classic Battlestar stuff? That's irrisistable.

Well most importantly...

 

Which game plays better and who is playing locally?

 

Dallas Area

 

I'm up for Starmada and Full Thrust. Maybe A Sky Full of Ships too.

Ya the hostile intent stuff is awesome, I saw some out at GenCon and his magnetic base adapters work great for CAV aircraft.

 

Right now about the only starship game i've found being played with any regularity in the DFW area is Fed Commander. But they are all using the paper counters.

It looks OK, but I must admit I like the newest Full Thrust stuff a lot better.

We have the UKs biggest wargame con next weekend (Salute) and I will be heading directly for the GZG booth to pick up as many FT minis as I can handle... in between running participation games for DRM. The new sculpts are fantastic.

Get all the original ships from the NAC, ESU, NSL and FSE that you want. They're doing away with the original sculpts because the molds are wearing out. Only the new sculpts will be available before long.
