Year of Sci-Fi

whitewind the biggest down side i have to using DF with the SW skirmish/minis game is that while the set ups look great, there is some what of lack of stuff inside to provide cover and other things. And i have a bit of Grendel, Griffin Studios, Anisty, Armorcast, Hirst Arts, Antenociti and JR Miniatures accessories to go into it to provide cover and terrain effect etc. (even some scratch buitl stuff). And i want more...

I have to say i want some sized with DF, pre-painted Accessories to go into the set up.

I would love to get something that is similar to the table that is in the RotS starter, or

I've painted a few things " mostly what I've had lying around " but I have to admit we hardly get o play anymore. I'll echo that I'd like to see some floor stuff that you can climb on, in and around. Yeah, that would rule. Almost every sci-fi ship or hanger type film I've seen has exploited a duel level area that they inevitably get into some sort of " conflict ". The new large altar with removable floor section that is coming out for the DOE set would be my first pic for some sort of sci fi accessory remake. Emphasis maybe on free standing things that have flat area on top so you can climb up " if you want to ". I mean we already have the stairs to reach up there. LOL.

I too would love some DF Sci-Fi Accessories. My Stormtroopers & Space Marines need some cover!

Let me second GS's request here. :D
Like I have never done so before, right? :lol:

GS is correct though, the DF SF MM Acessory set(s) are truly, desperately needed to make the Sci-Fi Master Maze MUCH more attractive to the non-current user of Master Maze.
Those sets and the further expansions to match the variety of pieces in the Fantasy MM will translate into much greater sales of Sci-Fi Master Maze.

VA has state-run shooting parks, where you can rent shotguns and compete in trap shooting.
Favorite Pieces: Chasms, 45 Degree Passages, River & Lava Banks, Ledges, Large Curved Walls, Elevation Arch

RF* -

.38/.357; 9mm; I used to have some longarms, but since most shooting areas around my end of the state are GONE, except indoor stuff, I don't even have any except a home defense 12 gauge riot gun - which I have NO INTENTION to take to a range. That pistol-grip is not conducive to target work. Besides, you don't AIM a 12 gauge in combat; you just kinda, WAVE it in the right direction! #3 Buck will do the job.

Used to do some target compound bow, but that sucker was killing my shoulder (old car accident) so it went away.

But I can still qualify Expert on the PPC range. And that's WITHOUT the Laser Aimpoint for the Glock!

See ya!

Jim

RF*;

I think our primary problem here is that, with the exception of you, me, GS, Mike the IO, and two or three others, we don't get a lot of LOUD, POSITIVE feedback posted here in favor of Sci-Fi MM. As a result, Jeff and Stefan haven't gotten all that much drive to expand the Sci-Fi line.

We need SOMETHING, somehow, to get the Sci-Fi Gaming community to open up and post POSITIVE commentary here on the forum, so Jeff and Stefan can see that Sci-Fi expansion won't be a budget-breaker.

See ya!

Jim

Well, when the Star Wars Skirmish game came out I thought it would be the greatest thing to play it on the DF Sci-Fi stuff...AND IT IS.... I am really amazed that folks have not gone bonkers with it and want to use it no matter how much it costs, " I mean each person in the group could buy a set or two". The maps they have for that are great " I have to admit " to just slap them down is easy as can be. More can only be better at this point for Sci-Fi line as this would approach the usefulness and diversity of the WOTC maps. I only play it maybe once a 3 or 4 months when a friend and I get together after he moved out of town. Prepainted is a good plus for ease " but everyone knows that "

I'm a spritely 35 and yes, Field of Dreams is a great movie despite the fact I have never played baseball in my life (I'm a Martial Arts fan). Rabidfox, yes, I agree that Sci-Fi could be used for wargaming too - I guess WH40K/Laserburn (now that's showing my age) or SpaceHulk would be excellent on DF sci-fi terrain.

I have never GM'd Sci-Fi before (I will be GMing Conan next, when it's my turn) but I will have a trawl through the Sci-Fi RPGs to see if anything takes my fancy for 'next time.'

Cheers - Dave

One of our more middle-aged folks here, eh Dave?
Laserburn does not quite place you in with the old fogies Dave; I have ran into a few teenagers here Stateside who play it.
It was never one of my loves - sorry.

Dave, I have cousins in Wales and Scotland who refuse to "waste their time" watching an American baseball film.
That is why I questioned whether you would have seen it or not.
Then again, a good number of my cousins can go on about cricket until I am bored to tears.
I have played it several times and just cannot catch the thrill of it.
I do respect good players of it though.

I, like Jim, hope you do have an opportunity to have a great experience with an Sci-Fi game of your choice.
Sounds like you mostly roleplay so your choices may be limited when it comes to Sci-Fi.
Personally, I only wargame and only use rpg books to flavor the background of the battles and campaigns.
That's just me.

Anyway, have a blast Dave!

Actually, RF*, I never saw FoD, think baseball is as waste of space and time AND athletes (and athletic supporters, never mind!), and ain't all that fond of football (either kind), hockey, or basketball. NASCAR and drag racing are a waste of gasoline, and IRL/CART don't exactly turn me on either.
Now, F1 and SCCA stuff. . . OKAY! But I'm not all that current there, either.
Okay, I admit it; I'm a geek who still shoots, occasionally. But only on the range.

...

See ya, guys!

Jim

So you just appreciate the one quote from FoD that you have heard around then Jim?
I am asking because there was no 'smilies' attached to your posting to indicate humor of any variety.

So you are an anti-sports vacuum, eh Jim?
So what?
The world needs all kinds, and you fit that space.
Some people would be shocked to understand that there is more to life than sports.

As far as targeting, what do you like downrange using what implement of choice?
Do you ony use firearms or do you use any of the more primitive force projectors?

And Dave; I truly hope you DO find a sci-fi RPG you can like, because once you start crawling along those accessways, hoping you can find the hatch cover before the acidbleeders can catch up to you, you'll never go back to simple goblins and orcs. Unless you just want a relatively easy run.
Hey, at least on a planet, there SHOULD be a breathable atmosphere! Ever try breathing vacuum? It's pretty thin stuff; after a while, your skin gets kinda tight, too. Not to mention, it gets COLD! Or HOT!

Whatever you play, have fun! That's the whole purpose of the hobby, right?

See ya, guys!

Jim
