It dosn't really... sorry we are all being so thick about this. The new SST rules, are they do radicly different from the version one rules that we will need a new core rule book (i.e. battlefield evoltion)?

I've looked... last week two boxes of the exo-suits went up but shot up from like5$ to 40$ in 24 hours.... a little too pricey for 3 models for me. I am pretty confident I made good copys.

I agree... why can't it just stay where it is?

And on top of that I will feel even more cheated if the forum is moved in with a rule set we haven't and may never see...

Out of curiosity, and being fairly new to the forum and the game, why are there plastic LAMI guys featured in the Klandathu book, but only mettle guys around? Mind you I think the mettel ones look a lot better (although I might have some complaints about bad molding if I had bought them new...)?

Although two months ago when I decided to get into SST's it was with the knowledge it was a dead game, I quickly became excited when I found these forums and found that there was going to be more stuff forthcoming! A few days after decding to take up SST I decided to also take up the Warhammer RPG.....

Well, that clears that up! but, this just came to mind. What happens if a missle is shot down? does it just crash, or does the munitions in it go off? If the munitions don't go off are they retrevable (I.E. a nuke... 300+ points I woulnd't want to waste...)?

A missile doesn't use a shoot(bomb) action, it uses the move(crash) action. You simply move the missile any distance up to it's max and then apply it's weapon damage at that point. In other words, the advantage to a missile is that it doesn't use the artillery templates, so it won't drift. It alway...

1) Note this means that a model can flinch twice if it makes saves against two separate attacks. Sorry to be so thick headed but what exactly does that mean? Does it mean if an MI squad uses two shoot actions it will get pushed back after each action? 2) Ordnance dropped using a shoot(bomb) action ...

MI is pretty easy, I use foam cases. But for the bugs I have struggled too... I've basicly resorted to big plastic tubs or boxes for the Warrior bugs and plasma bugs, with little bugs running loose in the bottom. but I've had some problems with the more fragile bugs breaking (mainly the tanker), and...

A bunch of general questions

Hi all. I have a bunch of questions on stuff I either don't know if I'm doing right or don't really understand at all, any help you all can give would be very... well, helpful! 1)Ragarding flinching: Can a model flinch more than once from one shoot action? Example A) 5 warrior bugs are in the fire z...

But where would you do deployment? I'd like to make it so one person isn't "monkey in the middle." Maybe have to do the deployment with the four squares instead of table edges?

[SST] Sniper Rifle

I'm not sure I'm doing the sniper rifle correctly. the bonus you get, if its a size 1 thing would you do 2 damage (1+1), a size two model doing 3 damage and so on?
