"Contact! Make that 4 Snake class frigates entering from Slither jump point. Lasers are charged and their torpedo flashes are trying to connect."

"Go to General Quarters!" Activate Electron screen. Weapons get a targeting solution on lead enemy frigate. Send all information to Davout command link signature Boone."

"Transponder identifies lead frigate as Star Scourge, followed by Vicious, Pestilence and Stinger. Marking targets now."

Pweh, Pweh. Laser bolts and explosions!

That's what it's all about! Nice minis.

Stryderg – Thanks! It's an oldie but goodie and is classic starship fighting.

I was actually expecting to see some Sathar ships.

Sargonarhes – Unfortunately I no longer have them and frankly, they were bad models that were hard to use. Were there any new ones made?

I would assume they, like I, thought you'd find something suitable to substitute. Eldar? Ork? Change of source?

Can't disagree with the comment, but the wormie ships did have a delicious pulp cover feel to them. I have the old Revlon fleet about here somewhere, and something about the green and purple metallic sheen took me back to my youth mid-last century.

Little known, the Buck Rogers board game had some near-Sathar ships in it, the mid-sized ones.

TheBeast – I'll have to check that out. Thanks for the tip.

You know how you make a mention, expecting a 'that's stupid, EVERYBODY knows that!', well I know I just did, and grateful for the appreciation.

To be clear, these were the mid-sized in the box game, but to Star Frontiers, smallest(?) Sathar, named scoutships.

Don't think they ever got to Knight Hawk status, just in a few modules of the RPG.

Doug – Thanks!
