Much as I'd love to give you the credit, it was down to bodging around with some word roots and translations....

And a bonus point to anyone who can work out the origins of "Zapasnova"

Cool Beans! :D Maybe a errata can be placed in a future S&P for those that don't read the forums? Will see what I can do, once we've ironed out the crinkles ;) I make it 3 moves, the 8" no mas land plus the 6" EFTF deployment zone is 14", the PLA move at 5" IIRC so they can travesrse the ditance in...

Sorry, haven't been on the forums lately and missed this! After looking at it again, I can only say "I screwed up"... Sorry 'bout that :( The original scenario was "get one *infantry* model across", and a shorter distance, but because it turned out near impossible to do I made a last-second change w...

ALthough one of my experimental armies will not be available, at 225 points for an SAS squad, have 3 of them in ambush and the Command squad at the back in cover, would lose against tanks more than likely, but just to see my opponents face after deployment :lol: *pops head out from under a pile of ...

BFEvo.com looking for co-admins

A while back I put up BFEvo.com in the hope of creating a real "community" site, as in one that people could actually contribute to and build directly wiki-style instead of having to send in submissions. Unfortunately I haven't had the time to work on it that I hoped for, and am looking for a couple...

CoC also works perfectly for the Pertwee era :)

A modified set of RQ rules would fit pretty darned well.

I should of course also mention OGL Horror.

Games which play the way you expect them to, not with obscure rules you have to keep looking up. If it feels like you're playing a glorified board game, someone screwed up. If it feels like you're really "there", someone got it right. The less you need to look things up on tables, the better (keep i...

I wish. Unfortunately I'll have to point out all the reasons why it's unlikely. The rights to the game would (approx 99.9% probability) have to be devoid of 40K universe elements (GW are very protective of it, and I can't imagine them letting a competitor anywhere near their IP), so that just leaves...

so those with minis in hand, is the base the same width as the standard slotterbase ? Standard is (usually) 25mm diameter, these are 22mm. I see no reason why you couldn't rebase these if you really wanted to, other than some people at tournaments complaining that they force the minimum seperation ...

Re: BF Evo Scale Comparison

They look nice for BF:Evo but SST scale needs to be kept. From what I can tell, they're pretty much on scale for SST - once you shave the SST figure's base down there's maybe 3mm in it, which can be attributed to the cap trooper armour. What I'd really like to see is a BF Evo mini next to a plastic...

And here's one for measuring:

The ruler is sitting about 1mm off the base on top of the sand at the back.
