Kzinti Frigate

Dan Proctor
The Kzinti 2400 scale frigate is a great model. While small, it’s a frigate after all, it has great detail. I like that the nacelles and arms. Take a look at the free paint guides. These are very approachable for new painters and add great visual appeal to your games....

Federation Commander: Klingon Border

Dan Proctor
Federation Commander – a sci fi space combat game
Federation Commander is based on the well tested and developed Star Fleet Universe of products like Star Fleet Battles. What you find here is everything you need to launch right into an exciting game of star ship combat. It has color maps, counters, logical rules that play well and more. What I love best about FC (and the Star Fleet Universe of games) is that each race has its own weapons and therefore tactics. The different strengths and weaknesses of your ships are brought up against an enemy with different weapons and therefore tactics. The sequence of play at first is a little mystifying, but trust me it works well. Once you get through a few turns you’ll start to feel the flow of simultaneous movement and firing opportunities. You’ll be struggling with bring your weapons to bear at the right time, the right distance and armed to the right level. As you inflict damage on your opponent’s space ship the shields are the first protection and then internal damage is resolved on the DAC (Damage Allocation Chart). As the damage is resolved on the DAC you’ll feel the damage walk across the systems and reduce the effectiveness of the enemy. Because this game is based on a much larger system (Star Fleet Battles) the expansions are balanced and add great variety to the game. After your first few games I would recommend the FC Reference Rulebook. It gives you all of the rules at your fingertips. Also, as soon as you can, pick up the FC: Tactics manual. (I must confess I never played SFB correctly until after reading the Tactics Manual.) Not convinced? Test out the free demo version of the game available here:

Lil smaller than I thought it be but still big enough for my kitbash plans :)

F&E Large Scale Map

Daniel Knudsen
If you are serious about playing Federation and Empire, this is an investment that is worth it.

Key Pros:

4-5 Stacks are easily placed per hex. This allows you a "big picture" perspective without having to reach in and move too many counters around. Knocking stacks over can be fairly annoying.

The provinces are clearly demarcated so figuring "what is what" and exactly what is captured or disrupted is much easier.

Included along the bottom row are helpful items like a battle mat as well as capital hex compositions for easy reference.

If you are serious about picking this up, pay the extra money and get it laminated. This will allow you to mark off bases as destroyed and annotate ownership of provinces without danger of wrecking the map. Also, this map is a pretty significant investment, so a spilled beverage is the LAST thing you want ruining your map.

So, get yourself to a 6 foot folding table or larger and set this guy up. The map that came with the game is fully functional, but if you want the wow factor and ALOT of added convenience, pick this one up. ...
