Ok, so I'm curious if it is set what is going to be released first? I notice from the most recent Hailing Frequency that Border Boxes are listed, but not for release this month? And is that going to be the same with the individual blisters?

I only ask to settle the fears of my wife on what I will be spending and what to tell my local game store to order.

Thanks!

Cool. It looks like they fixed the disruptor fire on the front cover.

I have been curious about those Fleet Boxes, which I understand are different from the Border Boxes. Has anything been said about the particulars of those sets?

Thanks, Scoutdad. I missed that post somewhere along the way. Those boxes sound pretty good to me!

Can't wait to find out exactly what's in each box - my wife needs to know what Santa Claus will be bringing me.

Scoutdad, quick question since you have read the rules. In your opinion is the box set a good value? By that I mean will you use all the ships? Will you need more then whats in the box to put together a competitive fleet. I am a little wary of buying a box set and after the fact needing only 2 models that comes in it. Don't get me wrong I will be buying many, many ships I just want to know if I should buy the fleet or blisters.

Thank you for your time.

The Fleet box sets look good value for money. Plenty of ships for a decent basis to start your Fleet. Then add the odd little blister to boost them up.

Though in playtests some of the single ships made avaliable we used multiples. If the blisters follow along Noble Armada mini's the small ships might come in anything from 3 - 5, the mid sized ships 2 - 3 and the big ships singles.

Mongoose says the blisters are all singles except for the smallest ships which are 2 per pack.

Thank you for all your replies. For the money the fleet box set looks like a GREAT value.

Comparing the cost of the 2500 to the 2400s is probably not valid. The price of the 2400s was set 12 years ago, and never increased. It should be 25-40% higher. Also, ADB (being fairly stupid) underpriced the minis originally compared to others on the market. (We got one single data point from somebody, that being "cruiser = eight bucks" and went from there with no research. Similar minis were selling for $10 at the time we set our price at $8.)

Compare the 2500s to similar sized warhammer minis from GW. You'll see that the squadron and fleet boxes are not just a bargain, but an incredible steal.

Noble Armada also has one cruiser for $15 and while they have several frigates for that price, their frigates are tiny compared to SFU frigates that are two for $15.

Any info on an exact release date for the rule book? Haven't found anything that mentions a date on the Mongoose site either.
