If you want to play Battlefield evolution Fantasy.... Why not just buy Chronopia? The rules are very similar since it and Warzone were one of Andy Chambers sources of inspiration when writing SST (Actually truth be told I think the Chronopia rules are a little more elegant in places), its actually d...

Mongoose Traveller is a licensed work, GURPS Space is not. etc. etc. etc. Can people stop making excuses for Mongoose? Its bad enough when noone calls them on their mistakes, its even worse in situations like this where theres nothing wrong and people are still making excuses :D Mongoose is at leas...

I tend to take shock sticks, simply because if you even get only one use out of the parry trait its worth it. Plasma grenades obviously for officers. Weapon wise Javelins if the units gonna be deployed on the board and Flamers if Im using drop pods (Although I am a big fan of two sniper rifles and a...

Boardgames!!!!!! More specifcally Dragon Pass

Ok, I know miniature wargaming might have soured you a little on producing anything more than books for a while, BUT: You own the rights to RuneQuest. DragonPass (is that what its called) is one of the most popular boardgames of all time, you have the expertese to produce a set of nifty plastic piec...

Re: Poor print materials quality

For the price, Mongoose could have found a perfectly good recycled coated paper and printed this in color, IMHO, this book is worth closer to $24.95 or $29.95 not $39.95. Something you might find interesting. . . If we had printed this book seven years ago, it would indeed be $29.95. However, the D...

If you need a rule book, I would propose that the SST download henceforth cease to be refered to as 'rules', and instead be known as: 'the unfininshed playtest army lists from war of the species'. If you want to see something approaching the old SST forum, I heartily recomend the link in my signiatu...

You aren't the only one who's dismayed by the way Mongoose handles its licenses.
If you're looking for a dedicated SST forum, why not try SICON command? (The address is in my sig), We did have a thread directing players to it in the BF:E forum, but it got deleted for some reason... :roll:

I can't believe the books black and white, is that due to going back to third party printing presses or something? Seems a bit of an odd choice otherwise given how many other systems core books are colour at a similar price these days, although I suppose without a miniature line to absorb the cost o...

Whatever happened to the proposed SST downloads?

Hey, I was just wondering if we're still set to get all the promised unrealeased SST material available as a free download? I still really wanna read all the Forth Fluff, since it was said that Mongoose wasn't skimping on it. I'd also like to try my hand at assembling forth proxy forces (styrene scu...

Props to the company for giving us these as a swan song! Its a nice move :D BUT...
