Replies: 41

I'd like to see something like this: 1) Models in cover are -1 to ranged damage rolls from all cover** and only +1 to their save if the cover itself is considered "hardened" i.e.- rocks or structures that take damage. **The problem with subtracting from damage rolls is that with the d6 and d10 balan...

Interesting. I would consider revising your TO&E to 3 squads per platoon. Hint. Regards. Doh! :oops: Ok.. thanks. Hope my NCO's aren't out of work too. I suppose a 3rd platoon in the company is a possibility. My intended Mobile Infantry Battalion will be a company of Marauders (3 platoons), a compa...

Thank you. My local gaming buddies just say I'm insane :lol: People who lack vision, passion, and/or enthusiasm often try and belittle others . . . . No, It's not quite like that. It's friendly joking about my compulsiveness with SST. They all have their own visionary and passionate pet projects. T...

Efficiency-wise it's best to put officers into grizzlies w/twin firestorms (maximises heavy firepower flexibility) and to remember to keep one 3-strong grizzly squad w/twin sixguns for AA defence. Good ideas. I like the officers in Cougars because they give the impression of faster more maneuverabl...

And whats wrong with that then . . . . . . Assuming you mean the part about having to put together more Warriors- I've got 73 right now done- 10 Tigers, 30 in a black pattern, 30 in tan pattern, and 3 for Ambushing. That's only around 1200pts. I think I've got another 5 box sets worth of Warriors, ...

Help! I'm an Exosuit Addict

As a sequel to my "Help! I'm a Marauder Addict" topic.. I did inventory of the Exosuits I already owned and recently acquired. I've got 21 Grizzly Suits and 8 Cougars. Only one is painted and half are not assembled yet. I'm pretty sure I know how I want to organize them (see below) but I'm turning t...

I'm hoping SST:3 is released to movie theaters and not straight to DVD. A successful full theater release tied in with a successful relaunch of the SST game would be the perfect storm.

I'm actually quite glad! (Gonna make todays game more interesting lol), especially since that was pretty much the consensus of what people wanted (But more importantly what I wanted lol).

I'm relieved to see something promised closer to the original rules rather than a complete rewrite. The detailed facets of SST are what I enjoy most about the game, things like Tunnel Assets, Air Phase, Reactions, Out of Ammo, Abilities and Psychic Talents.

If that is the future, the Burrower Bugs will have to be renamed Exit Bugs.

Interesting way to torpedo the project, Goldwyrm. Now I'm confused. What project have I torpedoed by stating the actual rule to the original game I'm still playing???? The project to keep people confused and guessing in an effort to infiltrate their homes and steal their SST collections. Ohh..that ...

Does not seem in the spirit of the game for the nuke to be worth points if it is not used. It is not worth points other than initial cost in any situation. The One-Shot! weapon value is deducted from the value of the unit once they are deployed . So a 200 point MI unit with a 300 point nuke costs 5...

On Nukes..and such. Page 54 of the rules under "WINNING THE GAME" reads: There are a few extra notes concerning the distribution of Mission Points: - One-Shot! weapons are deducted from the value of the unit carrying them once they are deployed. - Air unit payloads are deducted from the value of the...

I was playing around and thought I might go with the following TO&E shown below in a pictorial format. Corporal upgrades are not shown. I've pulled out two Marauders for Gossard and Doc in my Roughneck squad. I'll eventually pick up another 5 Marauders, noted in red. Since a company can be two plato...

shotgun-toting chipmunk- That's the kind of TO&E I'm looking for. Thanks. If I go with that I might peel off the 4th in each squad for inclusion in my PAMI squads but that is the type of structure I'm looking for. Anyone else have any ideas on how they'd organize this Marauder mix? I do plan on usin...

Help! I'm a Marauder Addict

Ok..so I've got some Marauders. I've built some. I've bought some that remain undone. I've got a few more off Ebay. I'm now at an official count of 28 Marauders. Now I'm stuck on how to set up my TO&E. For some reason I'm wanting to have my SST collection to be based on a TO&E first and then for eac...

Eight votes so far! Only 8 voters but I think you helped identify a very good trend, at least among those of us that care enough to respond. A majority of the models listed are either unanimously voted for keeping or being redone and only a small number are split decisions. I'd say that is very goo...
