Interesting read... Well, got into SST as soon as LAMIs were released - always had a weak spot for light infantry doing the impossible, and I still consider Klendathu Invasion as the best campaign book I've had opportunity to buy :D Now? Well... I'll tell You all this: am one of those people still p...

Triples it.

Although You might want to use a WFB or W40k head for a Cougar captain, just for the feel of it. The bald SMurf head fits very well in this role.

Utility claws aren't worth bothering. However, usually (that is, unless faced with extremely dense terrain) twin fifty is more usefull than the flamer, even if just for the range and AA trait.

Yup, leaving some plastics for infantry would be an excellent idea - unlike metal plastic allows easy re-posing and customisation of models, thus allowing to avoid those "attack of the clones" armies :)

Terran Ascendancy for me - while I love the book, this particular game mixes both book concepts and LAMIs perfectly, with loads of place for addons. Also, bugs as non-technological race have that neat alienish flavour ^^

Transfering RPG characters into tabletop.

Sooner or later every party wants to try their strenght in a big battle. However, doing so is quite straining and time-consuming in pure RPG, so here's a system of transferring characters and simplifying GM's life ;) As usuall, all comments welcome :) 1. Start with regular tabletop trooper's stats. ...

1. Campaign books - Klendathu was the best I've read so far, so You "just" have to keep up to that one ;) 2. Situation books - environments, gravities, "neutral" forces (local wildlife/natives etc) As for the special units, am not too keen on this idea - after all, they're supposed to be special, no...

Can't help thinking the MI would love a weapon that rolled D6 D10's. . . Frankly I wouldn't. Why? Because we already pack quite a lot heavies as it is, so this kind of firepower would simply unbalance us :) As for the topic, an option for SICON officer to take the M4 would make him an usefull choic...

Taking fortified beaches against a foe that knows the terrain isn't easy. Oh, I meant chasing an already routed enemy on the third front (western Europe), not assaulting prepared defensive positions :D And isn't the "new approach" (post-Klendathu one) almost literally based on the Pacific? With the...

MI - 1st. Arachnids - 2nd. Skinnies - 3rd. The Forth - 4th, Tankers - 5th, so everything's in grammar order ;p

On the other hand missions that seldom require more than 3-4 hours of field time, and air assets taking care of long-range redeployments (meaning even LAMIs won't be able to utilise tanks well without massive logistic problems). Nope, imo still tanks are better left as a support for garrizons on low...

Touche. On the other hand, let's stick w/exos and CAPs, giving comparable speed and firepower. Again, why overcomplicate things? ;)

Definitely not - by definition, it's AIRmobile infantry, not mech inf. Tanks would only add tons of logistics problems, not to mention the fact it'd be much easier to add more Marauders (more efficient units, after all) rather than redesign transports.

Never had any problems with the SST plastics - Pattex SOS worked perfectly with both MI and Arachnid models.
