Re: Miniatures combat

I like the things SciFiGuy has said. It all seems to point along lines we've seen in the comic. One thing does puzzle me in the comic, though: autonomous or semi-autonomous missiles.

Re: Miniatures combat

Unfortunately, I have little experience with miniatures and table-top gaming (although I have played a ton of pen-and-paper RPGs over the years) but from what I've seen in the comics, you'll want your system to favor the capital ships not getting too close to each other.
