imperial armor? not tournament legal last time i checked(which was a year ago,granted :roll: ). i think every book had the "opponent's consent" blurb, and only the Apocalypse changes the matter since everything goes in that ruleset :wink:

How about I punch you in the mouth while we're at it since I feel that that's probably the only way you'd get a hint, being so non-generic and all? as i seem to recall you'r not female,not 20 and not wearing appropriate costume,i fear i must decline :oops: Edit: As for SST being exclusively men in ...

Those who are saying no to Tanks are being very closed minded, locking onto one idea (in this case Powered Armour and Marauder Suits) and saying "this is the only way to go". well,maybe becuase they want to play SST the game,and not "some generic game that happened to be named Starship troopers"? t...

They most certainly are _not_ being steered towards peace. . .

during a long period of famine people often find thing they thought inedible to be, in fact,quite edible. a year-long famine with morale-shaking occurances in the middle tend to have that kind of effect on people.

At-43 is a little faceless right now. The designs are also a bit silly. E.g. how are those walkers meant to go up hill without toppling, how are their legs meant to step up. Remind me of the Gargants from Epic 40k(and they were a joke!). well, true, but it also has this stunning advantage of actual...

the factory name's actually comes from the name of the main engineer and later owner, mr Emil Skoda :P

Actually I like the sculpts for that lack of detail. We're talking military equipment that goes into harsh environments. sure, it's realistic. it's also "not cool". and cool factor is the MOST important thing in miniatures market i guess. take infinity-it has the most implausable designs ever, with...

sure the detail and that on GW models may be better, but they have had 20+ years of experience, and have some of the worlds best sculptors on their payroll, i once used the same argument. the answer i got? "does every new car company start with Ford T"? ...and it was damn true. there are some great...

GW doesn't have anything that looks as good as the cougars or grizzlies IMHO, for humanoid figures. uh, i have to disagree. 9/10 when i showed someone or discussed MGP models with people not playing they said that the sculpts are..well, poo-level. at least compared to Rackham,Privateer or even GW(i...
