I did these antimatter torpedoes up for a November convention game of Full Thrust. The torpedo rules are in the Full Thrust: Project Continuum rules.

I made them with the cut off tip of a flight base stem, attached with a cut off sewing pin to a 3/8" furniture button with a steel washer on the bottom. Wire was 3 strands of 18ga wire, got the cotton for the trail from a Q-tip and glued it on.

Stupid question of the day #1

Where did you get the cool bases for your ships?

I had the firing arc stickers made up by a local graphics artist and printed out. I used to sell them, but they weren't very popular since the didn't fit the standard black bases the miniatures came with. I sold out of my original print run, but didn't get enough interest for a second run and I decided to skip selling them.

I am now giving away the graphic for free. I just posted it in the files section on the Full Thrust Facebook page if you have access to that.

That's a lot of antimatter getting lobbed around!

Yeah, unless someone's PDF's worked WAY better than mine ever did, I'm calling a 'very bad day.'

The trick to dealing with those torps will be to kill the ships carrying them before they can close enough to fire. :)

that is simple and beautiful!

Thanks. I just found a box of 50+ painted GWS Space Fleet ships.

Wackmole9, cool, please post pics once you get the bases printed out.
