The Evo Firecracker Bugs described are a bit more powerful than how I had them for v1. With 2" and 3xD6 like a Chem grenade, the Arachnid player's option to detonate, and 7 in a unit, you're looking at 21xD6 dice at 10 points per model. That's more dice than Warrior Bugs and a cheaper unit. The SSTv...

Re: New Unit Suggestions for SST:Evo

Something new could be a thing like a Kamikaze Bug - a Bug that explodes when charging the enemy - like the CHAS, but as part of a charge action (some Ants use this tactic). Probably some kind of upgraded blown up Blister. I have a "Firecracker Bug" which uses the cliffmite stats but rather than at...

Goldwyrm - have you played with the suppression rules yet? They are in my opinion a great part of BF:Evo. It's a simple and effective system that makes things interesting. SST:Evo is not a complete game. My group is only playing SSTV1 because it is a whole product. I don't think they will have near...

I wrote earlier: 11) I'm ok with suppression rules being added. I don't think it should be automatic. I think a unit should be able to roll it off (say against a command value) to get their full actions. I've been thinking some more about suppression. I'd prefer suppression not be a part of a new SS...

Edit- Sorry, I posted my original comment to the wrong topic.

I converted some MI on ATV quads. That would make a nice addition to the MI. A ground APC addition would be nice too.

Out of interest Paladin did you play much V1 SST, or are you just really into Evo? I've read SST v1, but only played with the SST:Evo version, having been drawn to Mongoose initially through BF:Evo. I've been going through and comparing stats/abilities and the general game play and I see pluses on ...

My group uses a lot of terrain. I think MI should be able to jump out of just about any terrain and jump into most terrain. If you're playing with large boulder fields for instance, size 2 or bigger the MI should be able to jump from large boulder to large boulder without a problem. If the boulder f...

I really enjoy the current rules as they are now. That said, what follows would be my vision of an improved SST ruleset. Assume the following as changes to the original game and not an Evo product: 1) We often forget to apply flinching equally. Remove it altogether or allow certain weapons the abili...

I agree. I'd also suggest you pick up a bottle of liquid glue for ABS plastic, for example Plastruct Plastic Weld. It will make assembly of the figures go much easier.

I just received a contact from Ted Chang, who is going to be monitoring the U.S. side of the supply. He said that he'll let me know just as soon as they are shipping. I'll drop a note here when I get my two sets of them, as that would "buck up" the collective morale here and show progress on this t...

I think the tunnel mechanics along with the air phase are something that sets SST apart from a lot of other game systems. I like playing in those dimensions, and I absolutely use tunnel assets. I love to send a tunnel marker at the enemy along with a surface unit to force the MI to make a hard choic...

Unless you want to fill the air with Hopper and Rippler Bugs, I'd go with the Blister/Blasters and Hoppers. With 29 Blister/Blasters you have more than enough to do both types in multiple squads. If you want more warriors later, just by a box game set and sell off the MI if you don't want them. If I...

Since you're asking, I'd say my experience so far has been less than satisfactory. I ordered on September 4th. On the 11th of September I received the wrong order- plastic MI sprues with metal arms. Following my first communication I received two emails immediately thereafter that they were working ...
