Mods for BF Evo - Star Wars/40k/etc

Hi guys I was having a debate on another forum about the SST rules set and I remembered all the mods and settings we cooked up for the Evo rules set, everything from Russian Civil War to Star Wars. However the Mongoose Mods Yahoo group appears to have vanished. Does anyone still have the files somew...

Any solid news? Got some Hoplite mercenaries waiting to go in the painting queue.

Re: RPE, FASA Games, and Noble Armada

I don't think the way it says 'rulebook due in the autumn' and it is now December, is a good sign. They have the complete range from Mongoose, don't they? Because the models look exactly the same.

It's a shame, Noble Armada was a good game.

Re: Mongoose News - Warriors of Antiquity from Victrix

You might point out to them how well osprey have been doing with their offerings, and how stuff needs to be out while the hobby is still in flux.

You going to do some marketing push?

Re: Mongoose News - Warriors of Antiquity from Victrix

Come on Matt, where is it?

If you want to cash in on the Age of Sigmar effect, you've got to release it fairly soon before all the players get sucked up by other systems.

Re: Mongoose News - Warriors of Antiquity from Victrix

Great. Could you see yourself doing a blog entry or whatever to give people an idea of how to organise their forces in a few weeks time?

I'll have stuff by then and be looking to assemble and paint it.

Excellent. I take it the system will also be ok for competitive play and you'll be running a tournament a couple of months after the release date?

Well ordered Mercenary Hoplites now.

Might pick up some more stuff in town today.

Come on Matt, release the game.

Re: Mongoose News - Warriors of Antiquity from Victrix

I take it you've no objection to me converting over some fantasy elements?

I was going to do skeleton warriors and the Hydra (and of course giant scorpions), but Age of Sigmar and it's emphasis on the player balancing the game has inspired me to try just that, starting with a better rules engine.

Re: Mongoose News - Warriors of Antiquity from Victrix

Been two months and for some reason I'm very interested in skirmish rules that could be adapted to fantasy.

How soon until release?

Time for a return of the Painting and Modelling section?

Finally managed to get back in.

With the Victrix games coming out soon, and Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper in production, is there demand for the return of a painting and modelling section?

Basically people paint stuff and put their projects up and it encourages others to do the same.

Re: Discuss the State of the Mongoose 2014

Warriors of Antiquity. - Very interested in this. What basing scheme will you be usung? If I were going to start putting together a force now, what would be a good start? Is a single plastic box ok? Would you need characters from somehere else? Do you need skirmishers and archers? I'm eying up the m...

Re: Will there be another Call to Arms?

I think locarno24 is very close to the issue with Noble Armada. Because you buy a fleet box, a cruiser, a dreadnought and maybe a couple of blisters and then that's all the fleet you'll ever need, unless people keep collecting fleets then there isn't much scope for sales growth. And I had five Noble...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2013

As a wargamer rather than a roleplayer I am a little thoughtful about this. On the one hand I know Mongoose's core business is rpgs. I think there is a bit of a gap in the wargames stable with the wait for victory at sea, and while I think manufacturing moving to companies that specialise in manufac...

Re: Noble Armada End of Line Sale

It's a shame, as it's a great game and a nice line of miniatures.

Though I am wondering whether Mongoose will produce another line of ship minis, whether they'll go with a licence or an original background, and what scale they might go with.

I'd like to see "What if" ships..? - - - SVC: You have to convince me that they will sell. Consider that it costs at least $100 and maybe $300 or more to get any given ship to market.
