Hi guys, it's actually a little worse than you realize. After Lt got out of the hospital he suffered the loss of his mother. Last I heard from him he didn't know why the site was down. Being the "other" mod I did try to contact the server admin, but never got a response.

Good points Paladin. Speaking for myself, I'd be all over it if I didn't have to buy the extra book.

Today's the day...

If I'm not mistaken today is the last day for the SST forum before it runs head-long into oblivion, so I just wanted to say it's been fun guys. Thanks for the ride!

I'm glad someone started this. MGP staff, is there anyway to make this one particular thread permanant? I think it would be appreciated. So this is going to be long but stick with me. I bought the very first box off the truck (literally) the day this game hit shelves. My friend owns a game store and...

So your luck hasn't cleared up much then? I'm really sorry to hear that. It's kind of funny to say this (especially given my relative inactivity here of late), because I don't actually tend to spend a lot of time on-line, but I actually do feel like I've met some cool friends on here and lately the ...

Lt.! Good to see you posting again. Personally I blame you for the bad news. Seems like every time you go away then come back things worsen a bit. LOL!

It's true that the EVO rules do give more of a surprise, but it shouldn't be a surprise to army DOING THE TUNNELING IMO. I'm curious-our group felt that tunnleing was somewhat under-powered. Were some other groups having trouble with it?

That's some good work! I'm completely jealous. Usually the fact that I'm a gamer is a downfall when it comes to women (I know, I'm just as shocked as you guys about that!LOL), but you've got a wife who actually paints! She's good too! I especially like the Warriors.

Picked up a pack of these this weekend. They're actually fairly solid! It's The paint is pretty bad (even for Clix miniatures), but the actual quality of the miniatures is pretty good.

They can't give those things away around here, but I've seen a few, and for the most part I'm fairly underwhelmed.

I was just wondering the same thing Max. I know there's a lot of people who hate the "collectable" stuff, but will play a "war game" if it's NON COLLECTABLE (ala AT-43), and labeled w/the latest buzz term (Interactive Destruction Simulation...etc.LOL). It does seem though, like a lot of people have ...

Unfortunately, you can't judge the state of US gaming by what's happening in California. Where I am right now nobody even carries Warmachine or FoW anymore, and the handfull of stores that have 40K can't give the stuff away (two 40K stores went under last year). There's actually a store located 50 f...

"What makes any hobby good value is the amount of time you spend on it, if you don't have to paint anything or stick anything together that part of the value equation is lost. Thereby making it more expensive immediately! " That is a very valid, insightful point IMO. I'm just afraid that not enough ...
