Just make the change that fits. After all these cards are not sacred. No one will arrest you. Have fun with your games, and just think of all this stuff as nothing more than a guideline.

Matt rule on this back in around June. You can combine both, True Believer with the downgrade for civilian militia.

When combining options and upgrades, fixed cost upgrades are always added first before using in percentage upgrades.

Re: [BF EVO] Two different Ready Actions from one unit.

Is it possible for one unit to make 2 or more different ready actions in a single action? For example, I want my SAW gunner to perform a ready action so that he may gain damage dice and supression bonuses. Meanwhile, the rest of the fireteam performs a ready action for the purpose of shooting extre...

If there is only one guy in the FZ, then either the player was extremely wiley, or the other player did a good job of keeping is men out of the FZ. Either way that seems good game play to me.

Meh, I rather play another game.

Well the airburst idea sounds good on paper, but doesn't work while gaming. You still remove from the closest point of the firers back. Example in a building with troops at different levels. The closest would be the troops on the lower levels. So they would be removed first. The only way I can see t...

Before you sink some big bucks into a dropship, take a look at this first.

Ok, i just want to be clear on this: All militia must be downgraded civilians? :shock: :? I don't play them that way, Jay. I wouldn't sweat it. If you want to use the 25% discount then you downgrade the militia. Otherwise run them at normal cost as stated on the card. There is no reason I see why y...

How many times you guys going to ask this question? It has been answered many times before. FOR COMPLETENESS. Since the game is on hold, we have no knowlege if any variants/supplement or special traits and upgrades were in the works for those two forces. Players are free to add their own. Such as a ...

Okay, I love the BFE rules, but there are some points that doesn't work real well. Targeting certain type of troops are one of them. (Disclaimer: This is my opinion based on a many games of BFE, don't go fanboy on me, because I don't give a damn) BFE is a game that falls between a tactical squad bas...

I don't think so, I believe the wording is just wonky. The discount only applies if you decide in going untrained. After all, the troops are already cheap. Either that or there should be a KEY word on the cards such as Militia. IF that was done, they only cards with that key word could be taken, and...

I like the reality rule too. 2 dice per zone over the first 1 . You can't split the 2 dice between the zones like 1 dice from zone 1 one dice from zone 2 it has tom be 2 dice from a zone ? Hmmmm, that would seem to make it less appealing tactical option them imho. No, You can. I'll give you a examp...

And anyway, there is no MEA Government Forces option. There aren't any models, and where are the cards/stats for them? Evocommand for stats. Yep, and there are some really good ones to use. I have a complete light infantry MEA government platoon, with BTR, and Truck options. I prefer my troops to r...

So if you want to make 3 fire zones from 1 squad the 2nd and third FZ each lose 2 dice ? That's pretty severe ! :shock: And they are lost before you roll or you pick which ones to lose after you roll :? Your reality idea seems tomake good sense :) Yep, that is how split fire works. You get to decid...

I'm not really following you guys. :? Yes, if in a elevated position the MEA can hurt a WZ-551. They would need to roll 6s modified by the EFP to get the 8 they need to target the vehicle. Then the WZ-551 would have to fail 3 armor rolls of 3+ before it was destroyed. Sure it COULD happen, but that ...

A very simple Command/Troop Quality Variant

I posted this one Evo. But, I'll do so here also. Presently when a unit leader is removed, the unit loses two actions to replace him. While that is all and good, it doesn't reflex different troop training/Command Control/Morale. This rule variant gives a little unpredicablity to those situations. Wh...

If your playing tourneys I would say NO. I enjoy playing them, but I play basically just games and scenarios. They can't deal well with Armor. Tanks should just sit back and pounded them while infantry shields the tanks. While they have a good AA weapon, it is expensive, and really is a government v...

Remember way back when STC, when I went on a tirate over snipers? THIS was my main contention. You could do what I do, just limit ONE sniper team per Platoon. (or two if your adventureous.)
