The PHR frigate chine pieces fit nice and snug. They stay on the model without glue. the only ones I glued were the Medea’s as the widget goes on the chin.

I’ve heard so many great things about drop fleet. Love to watch the vids and Learn more about the game. And when you see so many folks having a great time. Man I think I’m falling for another game.

Lol “…then start thinking about the weird ships later” I thought he might slip in that one.

Great tips. This is the number one game on my list for next year. I only allow myself two new games per year and Kingdom Death is my second. Of course, if I win it wont count and I could get another lol Cheers

Very nice advice from Dave there. Actually good advice for any game – build the simple ones first, learn the rules, then play with the advanced tools!

Nice to know the box cover is a ‘well rounded’ fleet. Sounds like a game you’ll end up getting two (or more) starters if you are into bigger fleets or selection.

Using a magnetic for the turrets might cut down a bit on the number of figs you need ‘buy’ or ‘build’.

It is as you can build all cruises and frigates from the starter, even the odd ones

Magnetize magnetize hell i want at least one unit of each. It’s an amazing army and is gorgeous. No phr admiral should be with out any of the ships

I believe that Dave is the vanguard of an invading alien race. His job is to distract humanity with awesome games so that we’re distracted while they take over the planet…..

I’m ok with that as long as he continues to produce games and miniatures. All hail the alien overlords!!!

Love that he is actually so open about how you can magnetize… Since he is basically telling us why we don’t need to buy so many ships form him…

looking at everyone building is really tempting me to just buy some ships now.
