Guys, I did not cancel my event because the current state of affairs with MP or BFE. I cancel because my job would not allow me to attend the convention. I'm still staying positive on BFE. I think what MP is trying to do by providing not only rules but prepainted figures and vehicles is admirable an...

It is clear to me that issue about the stoppage of production of models for BFE, has cause some serious concerns from those of us that have invested in BFE. It is a fact that any product that hits the gaming market, generally survives on word of mouth to be a successful product. Also keeping that mo...

Xbowmen, you were using some ancient T-72 card of mine.... BTW - it is Pietia, not Pietis As for the tank costs and comparison, try this: Abrams attacks Type-99 You have 40% chance to kill Type 99. Abrams kills it on 7+ roll (7,8,9,10). If you fail to kill it, you have 30% chance to damage it - Abr...

My concerns of Ac in BFE

Since MP market BFE back in January, I’ve been attracted to the game because it has the look or feel of a,”Band of Brothers or Saving Private Ryan,” game level of play. And up to now I have been please with these previous wave of models being produce by MP for BFE. But this next wave of models and m...

I ask MP why the delay and here is their reply: The delay on the next set of releases is due to a problem at the factory manufacturing the items. Until we are 100% happy with the product it will not be released. Our customers have come to expect rapid releases from us but we are committed to releasi...

Bede and BigTMac, This is invitation to the both of you. I'm running a BFE game at 6:00 PM on the 12th of July at the Golden Eeagle comic book shop in the Fairgroends Mall. We played for 2 1/2 hours. If you can make it, great. If not that's ok too. I'll be running others once a month.

I doubt I will use most of these cards because BFE is a low level skirmish game. To add F-35,F117, J-12, and Mirsad-1 to this mix is to make these aircrafts out of character with the game. These cards can be use as off board attacks because to place a model for these aircraft, you would need a stand...

Well, the Brits do have Apaches, and just because they have a falling out with America in the BF:Evo world doesn't mean they're going to quite using them. As for the USAF F-35B, the Air Force is primarily using the A model, but they are considering purchasing some B models as well. It will theoreti...

Thanks for totally breaking the game with stupid cards. And I thought the Warrior 2000 was bad enough. MP has met and surpassed my wildest expectations!! :shock: (In your defence, even though you will not need one with all the rabid fanboys on this site, I will say MP, you did make a great set of B...

To Bede and BigTmac68: I'm interested in getting together with you all sometime in the future for a game. So let's work on it. Now to the question of BFE success. I'm very supported of BFE because what MP is doing IMHO is taking the right steps to get young people into miniatures. The miniatures hob...

Re: Any sense how the game is doing commercially?

BF Evo, and the miniatures, have grown on me over time. Yet I'm aware of very few who play it my area (Eastern Pennsylvania, USA). Does anyone have any sense as to how it's selling on a global basis? Will it make it to the 5th Wave (or whatever the projected ultimate wave is?). Where in Eastern Pa?...

At that level, yeah. Tanks are REALLY powerful and the Challenger is TOO powerful. Go up to two thousand points using the force organisiation in the book and it's not as bad (though Challenger with a Command Squad is still obscene). Killing Challys requires so much effort though, it's often the gam...
