Do I need the Dice that came with the boxed set?

Also is there any special weapons templates other than torps and fighter/bomber templates that you get from the specilist website?

I know another thread more questions, but all your help is very much appreciated

1 the dice from the set is helpful but not essential

2. a nova weapon template is also helpful

Templates can be photocopied/printed. The dice are highly useful as fracas said.

The compass on the flip side of the nova template is very useful for determining battery-target aspects, turns, & firing arcs.

what shape is the nova template?

I have downloaded the player aids from the website and so I am not sure exactly what some of the things are

also what is on the dice, are they just D6s or do they have a special face on them?

thanks again

It's a 3in diameter circular blast template

The small Wh40k blast templates about the right size.

The special-order dice have little cartoons on them to mark what special orders your ships are on.

They function more as markers/reminders than as dice - you never actually roll the things. You'll want to have *some* sort of marker though, since in all but the smallest games you will have too many squadrons to keep track of.

Well that's one way to make up for it's newfound inaccuracy...
