Holofields - well. If you're using Cinematic movement (which I think you
should), I'd up the speed requirements considerably since not even my
Thrust-4 ships usually fly as slow as speed 12 - but I know I like
fast :-/  The Holofield would simply be a Level-2 screen in my games. 

If you want to mirror the BFG holofields they should be very effective
against lances and torpedoes but not that impressive against the normal
weapons; with pulse torps as lances you get exactly the opposite effect.
Not sure what to do about it, though Aaron have some ideas that could

The sailing rules look fine, but I'd drop the changing wind direction.
The solar wind generally comes from the nearest star, and somehow I
if it changes its location very fast (unless the battle is fought in the
vicinity of a double star, perhaps? :-) ) It can be quite a challenge to
maneuver a sailing craft on the table anyway; random wind directions
it rather difficult for the Eldar player to plan ahead. At least that's
what I remember from my attempts some years back :-/
