Depends on what kind of troops you want for your MEA. If your looking for 1/72 scale plastic, then there is a company that makes insurgents in that scale. Can't think of the name. go to: plasticsoldierreview.com look up modern troops, and you will find it there. For government troops, Russians and o...

You remember right Shadow4ce. The main reason I see that the command models can not use their 3rd action ablity while loaded is a simple Game mechanic. Nice to keep things simple and even across the board when it comes to rulings. Like Shadow4ce said, you can always upgrade to a Command Vehicle in t...

But, that is the way MP ruled it, and I concur it is a good ruling. This topic has been discussed manytimes before. See the rulemaster section. IF you go back far enough you will find the ruling. I just except what LBH said, afterall he has been to all the MP tourneys and is very knowlegible with BF...

It must be ON the table. So if in a transport the answer is no.

It is either a misprint or a abreviation. Reason is the card does say it can be only used once a turn. (that being your turn). Reactions take place in the enemy turn.

If you ask MP directly, I'll bet money that the AT weapon can not be used as a reaction.

Not sure. I do not have that card in front of me to check. I ask you, why does the HMMVW have a lower target than a civilian pick up truck?? That is just the way it is made I guess. Either that or it is a typo, just like the Osprey card when it came out was full of mistakes, which they tell me has b...

Well that would certainly seems to give the Brits an AT advantage. Might have to give them a whirl. What advantage? The rifles? They still can't use those AT weapons in reaction. In advanced can you split a squads FZ's like say I had enemies to the right and forward. Is there an advanced option to ...

Haven't really tried the EFTF yet. Just noticed the British MBT LAW card makes no mention of not being able to fire as a reaction unlike the other ATs so far . Could that have been a misprint ? No, all AT weapons so far can not fire in the reaction phase, but if you have rifles with those troops th...

Well they should print a new one in the next issue, so as not to confuse those that like to use them cards. Sloppy.... But, I have issues with the transport capablities for vehicles also, but like I said, MP can make what ever they wish, I'm not going to argue the issue anymore. Let's hope they tigh...

Same as most other FZs 6" radius. And yes, there are landmines in the main rule book. Two types of landmines, personal and vehicle.

The grenade rules are covered completely in the Rule section at www.evocommand.com. I wrote them up for all to use, based on rulings by Matt here at this website.

There is no, scale to weapon ranges in this game. It is all subjective, which is fine by me. Just because a weapon can fire a certain distance doesn't mean it will be used at that range in real life. I'll use my favorite time period as a example. The Henry Martini rifle used by the British during th...

Still, I bet she can't throw a mate over her shoulder and get him out of danger while carrying a full load. I have only seen 2 or 3 women that could do that. So while girl power is all good and well, I wouldn't want them anywhere near me with the ball starts.

Re: Basic air rules ?

Are there any " BASIC " air rules to try for the game ? I've read in other forums that the air part was " broken " [ whatever that means :roll: ] and wanted to give a chopper a spin. I don't know what those forums are, but the Basic air rules work fine . My only beef is the elevated terrain bonus, ...

I just think that if the Evo rules are your thing, you might be better served with units on Evocommand, rather than getting wound up by what we are doing Matt, your right, not just right, but completely right. I have been wound up, because I expected something more true to life. After all the game ...
