    Actually, it's from 'venare' "to hunt"

    Not really. 'Rapere' is primarily "to seize" or "to take". So, the famous Rape of the Sabine Women from early Roman history is a mass kidnapping followed by Stockholm syndrome, which isn't really better than rape, (and probably included some rape in fact) but wife stealing has a good historical basis and, umm, I think this is getting off-topic ...

    So, for 'raptor' picture the velociraptors from Jurassic Park, and not sexual violence. And on that note, I give you Root Her, a Jurassic Park slashfic.

    Oh, NSFW. Actually, just not safe. And includes too many uses of the word "Velocigina". Which, oddly, should be the name of a spaceship ...

    Here's hoping for a March/April release!

    No real reasons, except I don't like waiting

    Perhaps their recent merger/takeover/buyout will improve their logistics, and get us our pew pew with greater reliability!

    I really want to start a space fleet game. Should I buy into Firestorm Armada or wait for this? Choices, choices...

    From what I've seen of Armada on the FFG previews, it's more 'ballet' - long sweeping manoeuvres, as opposed to the more frantic X-Wing

    Digging this up because new Imperial Raider pre-view!

    So stats and ship cards are offical now

    I see Tarkin and Fleet Officer going to be thing. Needa and Mara Jade might be good fit too. Dunno what to make of Ozzel.

    When I first saw those firing arcs, I thought there would be a blind spot but no overlap ... and here I thought my spacial reasoning was excellent...

    Grand Moff Tarkin artwork is the same as the card from Armada.

    It's on the boat!


    At long bloody last. Seems it's time to dust off the TIE Advances!
