I pretty much gave in on BFE and moved to AT43 a couple of months ago. While there are still problems over in AT43land, the difference in approach has been most welcome. As for BFE, well, this message may as well have RIP at the end. Without the prepaints it becomes just another set of modern skirmi...

Strange but true (or so I am told :lol: ) An M1 was lost in Iraq when small arms punctured a rubberised fuel container on the rear deck-( the containers have self sealing capabilities so this is not as dumb an idea as first appears). The crew traversed the turret to engage and in doing so compressed...

Sort of, but that don't mean they are kaput. They have announced they are changing their fantasy (Confrontation?) range from unpainted metal to plastic prepaints. Needless to say as soon as they mentioned this the metal sales have nose dived or been sold at a heavy discount. Although AT43 sales seem...

Actually the whole BF:EVO "holding pattern" is my fault. I have worked it out. I found a set of rules which I liked, started to get some figures together, then the "holding pattern". :( Then I finally saw AT43, bought into that, and then the week after Rackham announce their own problems and file fo...

Hmm Pauses a moment - remembers all those concerns raised 6 months ago about releases, poorly balanced factions etc, and the chorus of "wait til......." from the faithfull. Looks like we are going to be waiting a while. BUT Reading between the lines, Evo is now going to be sidelined for the relaunch...

My dissapointment is the lack of new rules.

For the last five months we have been getting regular answers posted here along the lines of "wait for the full rule book and everything will be explained"

and it wasn't.

Just had a look on the Sino Defence website - basically the 2050 is a straight copy of a Hummer

Although you did miss out the multiple captures, ludicrous escapes and really stupid ending that allows said bloke in trainers and his associated eye candy to actually defeat the pepper pots

EQ 2050 - is that a Hummer with a Chinese accent?

Just saw the pictures, look good, but for the ignorant (me) is the EQ 2050 a flat bed hummer rip off?

Forget the petition idea - look at Firefly \ Serenity. Even after Serenity got a reasonable box office return they still didn't bother. I suspect in part it is subject that causes these things to fail the second series test. Anything mildly dark, or dare I say it, anti US or even when the US is not ...

I am not so sure about the move bonus, medcs may be heroic (and some may just as easily not be) but they are not faster than normal troops - make them immune to supression? that would be a better way of representing their motivation. The other thing that we are missing is the effect the casualties h...

I think SG2 are excellent, and either deliberatly or not BFE does have a lot of similarities. If pushed I think BFE plays "quicker" and "bigger", but maybe not "better", but both have their place. Actually until BFE I ususlly suggested SG2 for any modern skirmish, now with BFE it is a lot closer call.

Actually the coax is usually pointing at exactly the same place the main gun is (thats what co- axial means). You can spray away with it but engaging one target with the coax and another with the main gun at the same time is usually not possible. I'm not sure what Matt meant by his response, as I ca...

The traversing argument is b*llocks Evil (pardon my English) as no one said the target is even moving, and, just look at how fast a modern MBT can traverse 360 while staying on target, then stand in your living room, hold a cardboard tube to your eye and turn 360 while trying to hold the tube steady...

Yes you can, but aren't we back with Cordas and his point, why not actually fix the problem (assuming you think there is one) rather than try and work around it?

Or maybe some of us honestly don't think it's a problem that needs fixing? possibly, and this is going to sound a bit snide, please believe I don't intend it to be, but do you think the idea of an infantryman somehow stopping a main gun round from a 120 or 125, or preventing the tank seeing a vehic...
