I like the idea of the deep multi-layered onion approach to Skinnies. I'd also hope that given their diversity that certain Skinnie groups would be in league with less than common alien species that may or may not warrant an entire army list of their own. So while some Skinnies may use slaves, other...

I'll bet the dish is for XM and Sirius. Those officers get all the good stuff, you know? :lol: That's funny. :D Until hearing what you have been putting together, I thought that I had a nice pile of exosuits. :roll: But yours are put together and painted. :wink: I can field one painted Grizzly righ...

Thanks BuShips. I was drawing from the book and probably from something you may have said about officers and scouts when detailing your own force a few months ago. What I may do for the officers is make some kind of communication module with antennae and a small dish to go on their back. I still hav...

Something from my game table:

Notice the mine laying variant. Might be a good add on for Engineers. If not an ATV, maybe some other light vehicle for deploying equipment.

There are reference sheet downloads on the Mongoose site as well. Click on the Starship Troopers block on the main page and look for the downloads section.

I own it. I got my copy cheap. It is not nearly as meaty in material as the core army books but if you're a completist, not having it will eventually eat away at you. :lol: I do have a Roughneck squad as well. I don't have the book in front of me but I'm almost certain you are not limited to a one s...

Thanks for bringing this topic up.

I have a box of unopened WASP troopers. I had various bits missing or mismatched from the first 3 boxes so I better check this last box out over the weekend and order what I expect I'll need.

So long as its not bloody cover saves ala 40k! First edition already has the armor save. At its simplest I see the damage roll as the shooters capacity to inflict damage and the armor save (and related modifiers) as the ability to avoid damage. I've been working on WWII rules for the last 5 years t...

I can't beleive I'm back here. If Mongoose is committed to producing the best miniatures they can, then the entire skinny range needs to be dumped. Reboot with a concept not based on the CGI show. Make a complete "counts-as" list for the old models, so people who have them can still use em. The ent...

I enjoy the cryptic clues. :lol:

I'm guessing I won't be disappointed since I'm pretty sure I'm not a "flat thinker" as referenced.

It's not an SST game table if it doesn't have alien terrain in all sizes and shapes. :wink:

Just as some sort of grounding for thought, why are the V1 cover rules being tweaked? A lot of this is discussed on Planet Mongoose.

@ Goldwyrm That is a lot of stuff. Id be lucky if I had time to do one of those you listed in a month. I suppose thats a five year plan eh? Hopefully not five years. The ATV conversions, Marauders, Exosuits, and Warrior Bugs I hope to have done by the end of January/February. Everything else might ...

I like the cover rules as they are in SST 1. Why? Because. <<snipped- the reasons >> I have to say I agree with your points. There are so many overlapping rules factors like the piercing trait which you bring up well. I withdraw my compromised version part which mostly waters down the modifiers. It...

Good recycling tips that you posted. I've used the sides cut from half gallon plastic milk jugs as wide paint palettes since they are polyethylene and the paint will peel right off for reuse when it has dried.
