OkI see that now Thanks. When taking a reaction to enemy movement within 10" does the raction if shooting interrupt the enemy movement? But wait what if a ready action would allow a reaction to an enemy unit taking an action at a greater distance than 10". This wouldrepresent a unit scanning around ...

Reactions fire

Hi Question : an enemy unit fires at my unit beyong 10" range can I react to that fire by firing back. Or are ALL reactions limited to the 10" range trigger. If so I wonder why that is? Optional rule idea: A ready actioncan be taken to go into 'defensive mode' then a unit can subsequently react (onc...

I do take your point. Nuts! seesm to handle grenades about right (pop up risks those In Sight checks and short range etc - actually I think a 3" blast is better but use 5" blast in confined spaces) but then that is more 1:1 skirmish feel. WaW strikes me as a larger scale skirmish game so abstracting...

To answer your intitial post. I would be interested in a non compettion WaW event (with figs provided your end) but dec/jan would be difficult for me plan now. A summer event 2010 would be easier to calender. I live in South London.

Thanks for the info. I will get them to play with my big ww2 boys: aka 1/35th scale! Tho if they will knock Nuts! from their top position on the skirmish front...well we will see...

I am slowly getting some Peter Pig 15mm together for bigger actions and I reckon WaW will do fine for them.

Attibutes really. But thats it. And there is the rub I think with DW. What would differentiate between two Mystics, two Sorcerors et al. Honestly its roleplay all the way. I do feel some additional skills are needed for the game. Each profession should be given some skill pick options similar to the...

below is taken from Savage sword of Conan - its a good SW take on the principle of background culture as used in D20 Conan: Cimmerian Tall and Strong: Cimmerians are a naturally tall and strong race, made stronger still by the gifts of Crom – D6 Strength Renowned Climbers: Cimmerians are renowned as...

Don't forget Hindrances and all Humans get a free edge!

Also in a Conan SW game background racial bonuses would be a good idea as per the in D20 and as used in the SW conan version available on the web... So your skills would get boosted up nicely in that context.

I think the whole going black and white and the binding fiasco must have been one of the quality concerns mentioned by Paradox recently. The Atlantean edition still looks great and puts second ed to shame imo.

I think the way it was going to be as far as I know is:
1.no more D20 (or precious little)
2.a one off Savage worlds Conan book- plot point similar to SK - maybe a supplement
3.MRQ Conan will full Mongoose support

If you take the view that the license may go from Mongoose next time around well there is just time I think for the goose to get that RQ Conan book out given that it is part devleoped.

Shane's support for a Mongoose SW Conan game is very encouraging and welcome in my humble opinion. No doubt Pinnacle would have a keen interest in it succeeding too (also sounded unlikely that Pinnacle would bid for the license - although all is fair in love and business should Mongoose not persue t...

I think the skills progression for SW is a strength: they equate to poor - ok - good - very good - excellent - masterly. Thats mentally enough for me to then think how skilled is an NPC at something rather than in D20 whenI have to think is he 1 rank or 25 ranks in Disguise (not to mention level res...
