I got the rules yesterday- looks interesting

How closely do your vessel profiles match to the Brigade Models ships?

Flight stand wise, other than Aeronautica Imperialis are there any others with built in dials?

Flight stand wise, I am not 100% sure.  Litko probably has something that works. 

As for how closely the profiles match Brigade ships, keep in mind I tried to base my profiles on historical ships.  This is a scale and mini-agnostic game so therefore I did not even look at the Brigade models when making profiles. 

However, that has not stopped me from using them.  I just say, this one is a X class, and that one is a Y class.  As long as I can tell the ships apart in game, it doesn't matter to me.

Thanks - Iíll check out Litko and other likely sources for flight stands. Having ones that change height would be cool, but may not be that practical!

With the number of photo of Brigade models in the rules, I wasnít sure if there was any direct link - but as there isnít Iíll stop second guessing and go with the ones that I like the look of!

...

I was just looking on the site, but didn't seen anything adjustable for height, but bases with openings for dice and an upright with 'steps' to put a height 'flag' might do you. I think there was seven or so step/notches.

Alas, couldn't find exactly what I sought, but will keep trying. Can't seem to make the search work for me, and with something like eight thousand possibilities, browsing is kinda daunting.

Greetings all,

The blog has some pictures from the book launch gathering in Powell, Wyoming at Gestalt Studios. 



It is always tricky doing something like this in the summer near Yellowstone.  There are literally 100's of things people would rather be doing.  Therefore, I was very happy with the turn out for the event.  We kept the Demo table full, and I was pretty busy interacting with folks during the whole time.  In fact, the game went a bit longer than the allotted 2 hours. 

I got some new, potential recruits for our small wargaming group, sold some books, and met a lot of great people.  That is what I call a success.  I don't have a ton of videos or photos, as I was trying to help moderate a demo game, pitch folks, sell books, etc.  Therefore, my attention was all over the place. 

Anyway, if you want more pictures, you can check them out on the blog here:
