Great advice, I am getting 13 Frigate sprues with my pledge. 4 Motherships, 3 Fleet carriers, then with magnetise 2 Cruisers, 2 Light Cruiser, 2 Heavy Cruiser. So each class can be any type

I’m amazed that anybody there can walk more than 5 feet without getting distracted by something amazing. 😉

Someone ask Dave about launch assets. Do drop ship troops count towards the total allowed?

Painting in sub-assemblies. Same way I did model cars when I was a kid.

One thing that always impresses me with Hawk Wargames and Dave is the attention to detail in all aspects of their games. They make sure the models, the way the models are placed on the sprues done the best possible way to which ships are placed in the starter sets and how each faction interact with each other. I think he really has a good vision of what he whats out of his games and how to accomplish it.

Excellent work from Dave holding that cup of tea. Held off of the slurp like a Trojan!

I actually love that Hawk Dave has done what he can to make these magnetisable. I wanna do this with my fleets though the primary reason is to get loads of options to utterly corrupt my local club! Quite a few of my peeps seem interested!

I am utterly gutted that I didn’t discover kickstarter until very recently. I’d have sold a kidney to get this game (says the guy who thought that board games were strictly monopoly and guess who until about 3 weeks ago)

It is out in retail so it might not cost any major organs – just everything in you wallet 😉

Some good tips. I have already magnatised my PHR so far, have all the other factions from my kickstarter to do.

I stuck to the recommended starter builds, baffling array of choices otherwise.

I was going build a few rare ones after building the starter as you can only have a few of them then work out what to do next.

I’m curious to know what makes Dave think the Ganymede is such a good ship. I mean, I don’t think it looks terrible but is it THAT good?

So much planning required before putting the ships together in this game. I really want to magnetise everything ><

You don’t need to glue the fin sections onto your UCM cruisers, they stick really well via surface tension.

Why was Dave not drinking out of a mug built from space-station parts? 🙂
