If you take the special movement you have to take a ready action in the previous turn - so effectively you save a shoot action from the previous turn and if you fire you still have to take the re-roll. Same principle. Actually, you don't need to be ready from a previous turn though you can. For exa...

Thats what we did in our first game too until we found we played it wrong. What we are currently trying out is that you only get the -1 if using track or wheels movement, this means that a model can move twice as fast as a normal move but suffers a penalty for doing so - seems more realistic and a ...

Finally got a chance to play a game with 15s using centimeters instead of inches. We used a standard 4' x 6' table and about 1500 points. All in all we felt that the game played better in centimeters with possibly two exceptions. 1. The deployment zone was too small if measured in centimeters which ...

Another Fire zone question

How do you handle a shoot action when a unit contains weapons that create different FZ. Example. US Armoured Infantry. Sgt has M3 SMG while rest of unit has M1 Garands. The Sgt rolled two 6s and the rest of the unit only rolled one 6. The target model was at 12" and was the closes model. the next cl...

15mm = 1/100 - use cm or inches (looks actually more realistic in inches; the gun ranges look fitting) Played a game this weekend with 15mm using inches and it played well. The one problem was that at this scale using inches, the buildings come out undersized. Might have to cm when determining buil...

I've got all my FoW vehicles and a lot of spare troops so I'm going with 15m.

For those using 15m are you converting all the measurements to centimeters or leaving them in inches?

Also with Warmachine/Hordes I've yet to see a model be released where the stats were not already public. When some of the models in Evolution came out before the book, the rules/stats for the models were in Privateer's quarterly magazine prior to their release. So you knew their point costs, stats s...

Look how well it's going for Rackham!


Oh, wait........ they've just filed a bankruptcy protection order.

PMSL!

Superb!
Maybe, but Rackham is still putting new releases in the stores with a new race coming out next month.

Much of Rackham's problem came from the rules change they made to Confrontation. Confrontation went through several rules revisions to the point that they actually had a very good game that was well received by their following. Unfortunately they went one revision to many. Their next revision droppe...

Please don't speak for me. I have nowhere near the time to paint the miniatures for every game I play. Since I really don't like playing with unpainted models I welcome the prepaints.

Anyone done any updates to these rules? I would think that these would be ideal to include in an SST game maybe as a special scenario.

Just use the EFTF one. After all how different can it be? I use Eureka metal minis for my command element. If you want it to be a 4 man Command group, add a extra rifleman for 15pts. Easy. Same holds true for MEA government Command. Use the PLA card. Till MP prints their cards, which I expect to se...

As much as I would love to have the air assets, I want a command unit for my US Marines Infantry army. Can we at least get the card!

Re: Positioning of fire zone

* The leader is probably at least obscured (by his own men), so your target number gets higher. I don't have my rulebook handy, but I don't believe this to be true. The leader (or another model for that matter) is not obscured by his own men in the same unit nor do they block line of sight. Otherwi...
