Default What do you use for ship combat...

? I'm getting ready for a 2v4 battle in next session, and I'd like to have some kind of standard form to track damage and DMs. Any suggestions, or am I still too wedded to my decades of playing Star Fleet Battles?

Is this part of a role playing scenario or is it a wargame?

Probably important to note which edition you are using, and if you are tacking on HG material.

I agree this is the main question. I nthe first case, I'd use (assuming MgT1) the CB system, in the second one, if the ships are minimally large, MgT1:HG (if they are small, I'd keep with CB system). Of course, YMMV...

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

The OP asks for a standard ship card, not a combat system.

I just use a printed spreadsheet with the major tasks and weapons summarised.

I want you to try something to see if you find what you are looking for. I seem to remember something...

Go under Search and click on Advanced Search and put this in the Search by Keyword box:

Damage Boxes Ship Combat

I don't know if that will get you what you want, but it's worth a shot.

Sorry, that search turned up a LOT of results, nothing on the first 3 pages seemed promising.

I was thinking of going to a spreadsheet to print some ship cards, especially since there will be a pack of fighters. I was just hoping someone had already done the hard work, and I could ride on their coattails.
