Single 25mm hexes and double hex (25x50mm) bases with a starfield texture printed on them has been added to the Bases page. The full sheet overlay that I built for the bases is also available on the left side of the page.

Nice. I like the inclusion of space. I may end up using that Texture sheet sometime. My friend and I keep planning on buying some Firestorm Armada fleets, but neither one of us ever manages to scrape the funds together. Real miniatures are fricken expensive! I do still have that 2.5D paper fleet that I pretended I was going to design. Lost my files, but I still have some of my prototypes. Also, I've gotten a bit more comfortable with GIMP, so the idea of texturing is less scary now. hmmm...

I have them on a flash drive I think. I also have the awesome Black Sun Wars set rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/104114/Black-Sun-Wars-RPG-Starship-Starter-set. Sadly the rules and additional sets haven't ever materialized. I really liked my semi-modular quick building idea though, but I guess Its not worth taking time off other things to work on it right now. I never finish what I start anyway.

I downloaded them earlier this month actually. I found the official version, and a community version or something. Haven't gotten around to reading them yet. I have the Firestorm Armada rulebook. I got the 2 player starter set, and played some games with my friend. Its a dice-fest, but I like to roll dice. The movement system doesn't do a very good job of making me feel like its in space, but I do like how it can be tricky to get where you want sometimes. It might just be me sucking, but I have accidently gone into asteroid fields more than once To be fair, I was playing the team that uses rail guns that only fire straight ahead. Its hard to line up a shot, and not crash into stuff. I also have 2HW's 5150: Star Navy. I mostly got that one for solo play, but have yet to try it.
Vermin King: I wish I hadn't been curious. Hadn't taken my temperature for a few days, and I'm running a slight fever again. I'm so ticked off. I guess tomorrow I will have to do the nurse hotline. Sun on the Beach...

Vermin King: But I had to drop off my electric bill before Monday (an excuse to get out), and saw I still had a full tank of gas. Filled up on 3/11 and after tonight have gone 54.7 miles ...

Vermin King: Since my Location is either Randolph, Sugar Creek, Four miles SW of Sugar Creek, or Raytown, I wonder if I'm being shown as ignoring the order. As with all stats, you have to take them with a grain of salt

Vermin King: I see that Stay-at-Home is only about 45% effective in the US. That is 45% of folks with cell phones are staying put. Big Brother is tracking cell phone GPS. And why not?

Vermin King: I keep getting a server error when I try to get the rules. I'll have to try some other time

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.

Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...

ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.

Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
