I don't come over here much since the minis went away, but just saw this topic and read the Nov. 3rd Planet Mongoose. I like the direction. I really like the idea of Judges as another option in addition to gangs, i.e.- a credit (point) balanced faction approach. One suggestion, even if optional beyo...

Because with a jump, you have to clear 6" in one go, which gives you a maximum height that can be scaled - with a Lizard Line, you can keep climbing every turn. Jumping into reaction range also gives the enemy a +1 to the damage roll which I do not believe is the case when climbing or otherwise mov...

1. The Jump trait does this too :) Ok, good to know. I didn't recall seeing jump mentioned in the falling rules (1stEd.), but then again I don't have the rules in front of me. 2. I would be tempted to make the LAMI walk - after all, who is going to trust them with anything so complicated as a lizar...

We used them in games with the following type of terrain: Why? It looks short enough to just jump to me. Two reasons. First- Lizard lines give the climb attribute which reduces damage from falls that result from flinching. The size 4 plateau terrain being fought across would result in a 4" fall. Th...

Jay, Not sure if you were the creator of a Horror mod I saw posted months ago for Evo, but some portions of those were used and modified again for the following game: http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c53/Goldwyrm/NJCON/NJCON2008048.jpg http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c53/Goldwyrm/NJCON/NJCON20080...

Those are way too small for 28mm but the fighter *might* be big enough for 15mm, maybe.. The dropship is even smaller and might be closer to use for 10mm or 6mm.

They're movie fan resin models, so I doubt they had gamers in mind when making them.

Linus, I understand what you're saying. However, people were gaming Starship Troopers in some form well before Mongoose came out with the game and will be far after. Back when I was playing 1st Ed. 40K a friend had Galoob toys we used. Alot of other Xeno/Alien/Bug armies are partly based or inspired...

I was always a big fan of the movie, had only heard of the book, and had never heard of the CGI when I first got into SST. I started with 2 box sets picked up on sale at a convention in 2005 and followed it up with a handful of other models, adding 1 of each of the basic Marauders a Brain Bug, and s...

Are the SST army lists for Evo a separate product from the previously announced SSTv2:WotS pdf?

Should we expect to see both?

Thanks Darklord. My future Skinnie army will be very grateful to receive a Skinnie Lord as general.

I also liked some of your Forth conversions/substitutes, especially the 3 lots of 2 walkers. I almost went for those, but I'm not ready to start a fourth army.
