Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

I have a set of rules we can figure it out

Oh snap. When will you be around? I can meet you at Maplewood and pick one up. I grabbed the rules but never picked a fleet.

Thanks for the check, that would have been spastic. Im so pumped to play I forgot what game I dont have. (much shorter list)

Nightwatch willl not fare well against other ships except the Brood.  They're specifically designed to fight them.

Whatever Nightwatch ships you use, just use their normal setups (and points).

As for customizing, I am fine with that.

Let's discuss finer points of why you should REALLY ensure that your life support systems are thoroughly checked in ALL of your ships eject systems.  Which optional rules do you wish to use?
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

I'll challenge that assumption.
the only NW ships that suck outside fighting brood are the ones loaded with tracyon beam ( it only works on brood)
the others are good ( though few have odd firing arcs)  

on a side note:
I'm little miffed my order hasnt come in yet  >:(
was hoping to have them all painted by Talamaina

I'll e-mail you.  I have MANY of the ships which would be used by NW.

Did you order the ships direct from The Metal Express store?
If you did and you payed with Paypal make sure you stay aware of the 45 day limit to file a complaint if you don't get the ships.
I didn't and didn't receive most of a $70-ish dollar order and no refund because of that.

And that was totally my fault. It was also a long time ago and is the reason I set up alarms in my phone's calendar to remind me.

BloodHawks are the awesome, if you do customs could you try out a variant or two that I came up with?? I don't remember their PV, but both are just straight up weapon swaps.
A) Remove Plazgun, install a sextet of Splattguns.
B) Remove Plazgun, install Quad Splattguns, a Meld Laser and 2 Mk 30 Torps.
Fear my ability to teleport hand grenades into your pants..........without the pin or spoon !!!!

My ships just came in ( showed up yesterday) but thank you for the tips.
now I'm  happy  :)


I havent played with the bloodhawks yet but they look sweet on paper.
i reallly like either version plazgun or the Plexar
both come off as strong interceptors
I'm thinking PLexar gun d10's are too sezy for those high target number fighters

Cthuhlu Wars was a BIG HIT the guys couldnt get enought it.
Played it all weekend long.

played a demo game of warzone resurrection.
from the one game I played, I like it. Its close enough to the old game to make me happy and new bits are neat ( I dig the cards )

UWZ: played a 4 way battle with my dark legion cultist. The necrotransport slaughtered everything :)

Silent Death: I won this years annual grudge match against dave.
GO TEAM NIGHT WATCH  :)

Race to the galaxy: fun game.

tons of BBQ and whisky  (still recovering )
