Aeronef+LI+Aquandef and all on same board will be fun (I mean coastal se war with LI and infantry on coast and Aeronefs in sky)

Well it will be possible as they are all compatible, indeed so will Astronef in theory...

I just picked the rules up today. Good looking game, can't wait to play.

really like the rules for the game. Unique and fun. Not sure if this will take the lead on the "my space combat game of choice" list, but I think I will get some ships.

The rules are very good, but I guess they've been viewed as a bit niche since sales haven't been great (hence we can't justify putting too much into new models, since we have so many other product lines to support). But IMO the mechancs stand up very well. There's a very good Nef conversion floating out on the InterWeb somwhere.

I can see that. I found the rules interesting. I'm still reading them and I will probably create a cheat sheet to sum them up. The game is a great buy even if just for a read.

Hi everyone,
I just want to voice my support for Iron Stars. I really like the way the ships look and the smooth gameplay. It has turned into one of my favorite games of this type. I know there won't be anything new for it but felt obligated to state my feelings for this great game.

It's a catch 22 game right now. Some folks won't buy mini's for a game without being able to get a full fleet. Without the mini's that are there selling, more are back-burnered for production. This also affects the rules in that some folks won't buy without full mini support being available.

Economics suck sometimes.
I admit it! I'm a greedy ship-a-holic...next fleet please!

Not entirely true ... there just won't be anything new right now.

"No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'!"

With perfect timing, I heard from Dan at MJ12 yesterday on the subject of IS ... so there could be movement in the near future...

Hang on, with Imperial Skies coming out soon, what will we mean by IS?
