You realise that I own all factions (I was a GW fanboy turned to the good side :D ) and that I am in fact one of the biggest supporters of the game what-so-ever and also one of those guys, that adds new stuff to it constantly?!? I told what other tabletop gamers thought about the game. I did not de...

IMO you guys at Mongoose should have never released the game after that sort of comments around the internet. And IMO listening to "that sort of comments" helped kill the game. There is nothing --not one thing--that could have made the GW crowd like a pre-painted game. If they had been painted to W...

Agreed.

I think what the OP means, is that,whoever the NDA partner company is, BFE as we know it will no longer be supported. The ultra-modern, quasi-realistic, 15-years-in-the-future wargame will be replaced by something new and different. I'm actually not taking that as a given yet. It sounds to me like ...

And that's the question: is it someone with a legitimate concern, or just someone who just reflexively slaps an NDA on everything?

How long do you have to paint 9 models? Technically, nine months. But other commitments mean I wouldn't even be able to start until February, which only gives me six months. That'll be kind of tight :lol: I'm not sure it qualifies as what I'm doing "now", but it's as close as I can get at the momen...

I kinda liked the Skinnie Venerables. Very 50's Sci-Fi. But not everyone's cup of tea, I guess.

Or Last Exile, or Aeronef, or Space: 1889... It's a valid genre, and a somewhat underserved one at the moment. I would be interested, but that's probably a sign that Mongoose shouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole :? . Naomi Novik's Tremeraire (sp?) series would also fit in well: sailing ships in t...

BFE is the one game that didn't get a major mention in the State of the Company news, because the NDAs are still holding up any announcements. So I wouldn't classify it as :( so much as :|. That is to say: no news is no news. The follow-up on the minis thread makes it sound like there will still be ...

I don't know, some games (e.g. ACtA) function just fine without a vehicle design system. I think you can go either way on it, really. But I've already got several "car" combat games where the movement is just like infantry. It just doesn't feel right: cars skid, cars fishtail, cars roll. Cars don't ...

Vehicular combat game

For those of you who don't follow the BF:Evo board... Oh and also - CAR WARS EVOLUTION. Actually, we have something sort of/kind of along these lines coming out next year as it is. . . Just thought I'd go for the wider/different audience. What do you think this game needs? I'm just hoping they have ...

Trust me, SGJ is a very small company. OTher than Chez, and Munchkins, all the game mentioned were from the 70s and 80s. MP is larger.

Strikes me as odd that by using a weapon in its proper fashion your enemy should benefit from it. And yet it probably doesn't strike you as odd that, by using Ambushing Skinnies in a proper fashion (suicidally tying down a flank for a turn or two), the enemy benefits from that.
