760 Patrons is on sale now in Barnes and Nobles, cost $200+ for used copies. Is Mongoose's printing house in Florida, because all three used copies are coming from the same place in Miami.

I remember that the tanks were used as artillery. When ever they needed an artillery strike, HQ would take command of what ever tanks were local and indirectly fire them, they also did this for point defense and counter-battery fire.

Based on my experience with the CT Patron book I wasn't planning on picking up 760 Patrons, but thanks to Bryan's post I now have another book I HAVE to get. This book looks to be really useful to any GM who needs a quick encounter or even an idea for a new plot line. So an idea when we'll be seeing...

While the Slammer's reputation is for tanks, they do have cbt. cars, infantry, C3, and Intelligence (The White Mice) units, the only thing missing is Artillery. While I'm a big David Drake fan, I really don't see a need ,other than the Mercenary Book, for a supplement specifically for Hammer's Slamm...

I like what your doing so far. I always liked the medals the you could get in CT, and if I remember correctly in CT Mercenary depending on what type of action your character was participating in for a given year they also earned Combat Service Ribbons. These would correspond to the Campaign ribbons ...

By moving the event roll for Army/Marines to 6 from 12 you already increased the odds of them rolling that event, you have a 8% chance of rolling a 12 and a 42% chance of rolling a 6. I guess it depends on how frequently you want to give your players an opportunity to add some glitter to their unifo...
