Imperial Starmada Sourcebook

I am new to the Starmada system so I wanted to see some pre-generated ships. I hoped to be able to learn a bit about designing ships using the Starmada system. If you read my review of SAE then you know I am not a great fan of the ship design system to begin with. Unfortunately, this supplement did little to change my opinion there, but that's an aside point. ISS is a meaty book (82 pages) with which you get 30 ship designs and background material for five empires. You also get an easy campaign system and about a dozen new rules. As much as I appreciate the work the authors put into the background, that is not what I was buying the book for. I would of rather seen more ship descriptions (what is the design philosophy?) and a bit less history. Each ships page has one nice graphic but data cards for two ships of the same class. One could of doubled the number of ships here easily. Overall a good sourcebook for empires but not that great a ship design supplement.

Don´t think the book with ~30 shiproster and some backgroud information is worth the price...
Full thrust offer more for free...
Of course counters for ALL the ships are free to download, starmade is on my opinion the better game (I like the hex).
But why I gave this product 5 Stars??
I would said: The Sovereign Stars
The Game - 4-5 pages in this book - works on his own or as campain for maybe every Star Battle Game (I tried it for a FANTASY campain. It also works very well!!!) It´s easy to learn, fun, fast, FANTASTIC!

(Sorry for my bad english, I´m from Germany)

Wonderful, this sourcebook has rules expansions and updated stats for a large # of ships. The only suggestion I would make is to contract out with one of the companies that makes 3-D paper figs (Fat Dragon or Finger and Toe Models). So inexpensive versions of the ships can be generated easily for play.
