Don't let it worry you...

I've played one FC game with counters in the last three years, and no SFB games w/o minis in the same time frame.

Heck, I'm trying to collect enough minis to play Federation and Empire using minis only.

That's a little ambitous...

Then again this is Scoutdad we're talking about Wink.

I'm thinking about the size of the map that'd take. Fortunately, my head hasn't exploded yet Wink

A good sized, school gymnasium should work nicely...

Scoutdad, did you get enough "factory reject" ships to represent all the cripples? Very Happy

F&E-with-minis could be a solution to the "clickybase minimum run" issue... just print the F&E stats in the clickybase, issue a "superduper mega-scale F&E map" and the F&E players will snap them up. Very Happy

Terry:
No, not enough "rejects" yet... but maybe I can cajole a few more out f Steve this year at Origins... Maybe a case of Diet Dr. Pepper and an Orion Slave Girl will do the trick! Cool

I have found a work around though...

The way we play, you have more dead ships than cripples. A cotton bal, soaked in a 1:1 mix of Elmer's Glue:water then placed on a stand looks a lot like an explosion if you air brush i Wink t correctly!

I'd like to be able to make it down, but I don't think I can afford it this year.


Knowing my luck, I'll never get to go...
