My only concern so far for Wing Commander conversion is Wing
is a fighter based game, the fighters may need be consider as small
instead of under current rule of fighters. (Then again, I don't have
Thrust, so I cannot tell the rule there will help or not.) For example:
Broadswords, and Avengers maybe consider a 5 ton ship? I don't think
need be rewritten since it's pretty close to how the Wing Commander set
I may just go to buy the Wing Commander trillogy so I can go
the number of guns on those big capital ship.. :)
