The Romulans did need more D-torp ships IMO.

Well, the thing about the rom pack was that it had to be all of one series (eagle, kestrel or hawk) and we did eagle since it was the oldest. We had already done several of those, and needed one to fill in the set, and we picked the BHE after some discussion. Second time around, we may do the kestrels.

It made sense to add it to fill out the Eagles.

One thing I would ask going forward is for ADB to add a sentence or two in the e23 description indicating what is new in the pack. If there is nothing new, nothing need be said. However, when there is something signficantly new in the pack (e.g., completely new ship card, ship card never before published/posted in color, scenario never before published/posted, etc.), it wouldn't hurt to toot your own horn about the new things that are in the pack.

Not really workable, as some people think a CapLog ship is new, and some dont. Some think a communique ship is new, and some don't. Some think a ship new to FC but taken from SFB is new, others do not.

BTW, Orion pack #1 sent to Leanna this morning. She should upload it (and CL#2) today and we'll see them momentarily.

The Orion ship pack includes the CR, LR, and SAL, which were the first three Orion ship cards done. These are all fully updated and cleaned up to reflect the Rev6 rules.

Orion Pack #1 was uploaded yesterday. Not sure when it will appear. I don't think it's there yet.

Next week will the Hydran pack #1 (Templar, Ranger, Mongol, Lancer, Hunter, Buffalo Hunter). That has gone to the staff, although Mike W insisted that I replace the Paladin with the (new card) Templar, and that ship went back out for tests yesterday.

The week after that will see the Andro Pack #1. This has already been sent to the staff for review, so I'm well ahead of the game.

The week after that should be the Lyrans, then the WYNs, then the ISC.

Andro pack? Great. What's in that, just the main basic Andro ships from War and Peace: Dominator, Intruder, Conquistador, Python, Mamba, Cobra? Any "bonus" ships? (Like the Viper? or SatB?)

I think it has the battlestation intead of the Python.

I guess we could kick out one ship and include Viper or Sat Base or Base Station, if Mike West convinces me of that (based on your input). There is still time as the Hydrans are in line first.

Eyepatches on shuttles!

Multi-colored shuttle engines!

Now you're getting just plain silly on us Smile

Seriously, it's great to finally get the weapon mounts updated on some of the Orion Pirates ships that have been out for a while.

And now I know that Orion Ship Card Pack #1 is up!

http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADB4811

Six more full-color ship cards for Federation Commander, this time from the Orion Pirates. Included are the:

* Raider Cruiser (CR)
* Light Raider (LR)
* Salvage Cruiser (SAL)
* Battle Raider (BR)
* War Destroyer (DW)
* Heavy Battlecruiser (BCH)

Also included is:

* Scenario 8PA2 Race to the Base (in which a convoy desperately tries to reach safety)
* The complete Revision Six 5L Orion Pirate Special Rules
* And graphics (in multiple colors) for the counters needed by these ships.)


I promise that SVC toned things down for the ships. It could have looked like Her Pirate Majesty's Ship PARROT and the accompanying shuttles "Jean's Parrots" Very Happy

I hope these links will work: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=478426413279

Yeah, I did the eyepatches on the shuttles as a joke for Jean, intended to remove them, but others saw them and thought they were cute, then Jean asked for the shuttles to be done in "parrot colors" and things got really out of hand.

The Hydran shuttles are all done in the color of the Hydran equivalent of a gerbile. You'll see that next week.

Thanks for taking up my suggestion of being clearer on e23 in regard to what is included in the ship pack and what, if anything, is new in it.
