Read the lastest blog news regarding SST and ACTA, then weep because Mongoose has apparently axed miniature production for all games -- thereby killing all miniatures games.
The're apparently going to paper products only . . .

Well, having read through all of this blather . . . here is my take on things: MI - no tanks specifically no MBT does not fit their tactical role. Possdible MBT and IFV for Colonial troops (aka national guard second line troops). I consider only the original Robert Heinlein source material in my cho...

There are many things I could say here in a negative fashion. I have held on for over nine months now for SST:Evo but to be honest BF:Evo is simply not my cup of tea. I spend on average $500 per month or more and I have been spending my hobby money elsewhere. This is simply lost money to Mongoose an...

Personally I really like the way effective weapons range is handled in AT-43. The system allows for "potentially quite long range fire" with many weapons, it does make accuracy less likely at long range. At least the concept deserves consideration. The system also has some latitude for allowing for ...

Have to say, "Very nicely done".

A little more textural depth added and perhaps some individually based vegetative pieces and it will be truly stunning.

Congratulations on a very playable game table. :D :D :D

I have used a variation on dipping, by making my own dipping solution using a clear acrylic (Future Liquid Floor Wax) along with adding either ink or acylic paint to maych or compliment the color of the figure. With a little experimentation this can work with any color. This also acts to base coat a...

My understanding of the scale involved with BF is that it is approx 1/64 not 1/72 -- a definitely noticeable difference. Main issue on optical appearances as has been discussed literally dozens of times THE BASES ... they make everything appear to be in a different scale. The human figures are in th...

First off, this post is not to criticise anyone elses opinions on sculpts, this is just to state my own unsolicited (2 cents worth) opinion. I feel GW sculpts have too much, of a Baroque/Rococo/Gingerbread style. They represent a future in which humanity has been unable to recover their technologica...

Just remember SST is a licensed product line and MGP is limited on what they are permitted to do regarding fluff. I have a feeling that Robert Heinlein's estate have a pretty fair amount of control over some aspects of print publication. When anyone compares 40K fluff, with over twenty years of cont...

If you read the various threads you will see that those who have seen and measured the figs are pretty certain they are a "true" scale 28mm figure size.

In 40K I frequently used Scout Sniper heavy units, to suppress and destroy my enemies. Once moved into a protected , covered and concealed position not to move again during the game, only to fire each game turn. The problem on most gaming tables always comes back to "insufficient scenery". On a 4 by...
