I think I may have been unclear, whartung.

What we playtested this weekend was a tactical combat game, with units maneuvering in formation on a tactical map, coming into and out of range of maneuvering enemy units. Think FULL THRUST or STAR FLEET BATTLES, except that the units on the map represented squadrons of three to nine capital ships.

That's what the strategic module will be, and the operational module will be movement inside a single star system.

Thumbs up Groovy.

Sounds like a game I was messing with a while back and fun which is why I was messing with it.

If you need more play testers let me know.

I'm still of the opinion you need to let some of us pre-buy and send the rules so we can play with them.

When I have incorporated the lessons learned from Travellercon and rewritten the rules into a draft that others can read and understand I probably will release them to the general public for a Beta test.

It will be nice if I have finished the 3D models for the miniatures and the stands for the squadrons so I can include them in any Beta test packet, but that probably opens a whole new can of legal worms.

The first 3D models have been printed. These are, of course, very rough drafts, but I am now the proud owner of what I think are the first two Tigress-class battleship miniatures ever made.

I d*mn near cried when our school's robotics teacher brought them to me.

There are now six Tigresses and four Plankwells. The ships look good enough for now, the next thing is to get their sizes correct relative to each other, and their absolute sizes so I can have squadrons of up to nine ships on one stand.
