Round here it seems to be an open secret what we're gonna use. We write our lists on the day most of the time.

And if we wanna do something a bit special we can ask a week in advance so I'm gonna be using a J-12 next week off S&P in a special game and a balanced list in a tournament practice match.

The pic on the card was a J-10. Which was the aircraft I was hoping we'd get actually, always did love the look of it :D

So guess what I'm gonna be scouring the hobby shops for.

I'm waiting to see the stats for the Zulquifar. If it has similar stats to the Type 99 AND a lower cost....then it'll be pitchfork-and-torches time :x Speaking of which, any chance we'll get a sneak preview of the cards for the next wave? I saw some playtest cards and it was a T99 with less machine...

The only answer I've found is called 'A lot of kornets and a lot of luck' (PLA plaer but I borrowed Low-Roller's MEA). I expect that the J-12 will redress the balance somewhat but what do I have until then? There's also the Fedayeen. They can suicide bomb the Challenger (they roll a 2 x D10 + 4 ). ...

A hull down Challenger takes 75 (approximately, give or take I did the maths very quickly in my head) PLA RPG's to kill. Same for The Abrams true but it's easier to kill by everything else. There is no infantry weapon which can kill it outright (fair enough but when it's all we have it's a bummer). ...

At that level, yeah. Tanks are REALLY powerful and the Challenger is TOO powerful. Go up to two thousand points using the force organisiation in the book and it's not as bad (though Challenger with a Command Squad is still obscene). Killing Challys requires so much effort though, it's often the game...

The problem with tanks and cover? Technicals *grins* OK so it takes some luck with the dice but ramming seems to be my best anti-tank trick. Doesn;t help that I play PLA I guess (the only game I've won was with MEA against Low-Roller's EFTF where I killed the tank with ramming Technicals and a lot o...

Fedayeen are Support, not Troops. Which means ytou can;t have that many of them. 1 unit for every two regulars. And their snipers... well what do you EXPECT snipers to do? Everyone else WILL get snipers. They already have weapons that can sweep squads away and suppress them easily, the MEA need some...

I'm not going to jump on the 'PLA suck' bandwagon because I haven't played much with them and I'm not exactly a 'pro' player anyway. However, I tend to find they die very easily. Especially with the short range of all their weapons (other than the solitary machine gun which generally finds it's own ...
