putting "products" in quotes to me implies they aren't necessarily physical items for consumption/use, hence the conclusion of a VG. But they weren't put in quotes, but rather ellipses... :) I just took it to mean that in a normal conversation he would have substituted a product name here. Because ...

I'm sorry Paladin, but I gotta disagree on this point: The weapon, once expended, doesn't and shouldn't count towards the Enemy's VPs, as it's use has effectively denied the enemy the chance to claim those points. What does "claiming points" represent, then? My assumption was that it meant those as...

Only reason not to do it is if part of the paint job is done during the construction process. (E.g. sponge-paint on the face before attaching the head to the figure.) That was the original idea for BF:Evo, as I understand it, but the technical challenges were too great. Until the technology catches ...

I've been playing since before Prime was released and I'm getting out of the game now in a big way. Funny, saying "I've been playing this game for years" seems like an odd sort of condemnation :). If you don't like where the meta-game is going, find more amenable metagamers is what I would suggest....

Yeah, maybe you could make it like WWII, with battleships and torpedo boats and carriers and... What? Oh, never mind :) :) As a serious contribution, I think this could work well.

Well a far larger company compared to Mongoose I assume. Oh, sure, but I don't know how big a company Mongoose is (quantitatively) anyway. I was more interested in the outside the hobby games industry part, where the most obvious play would be someone who is manufacturing figures (where Mongoose is...

But I thought we already knew the unnamed partner wasn't a game company, which rules WK out. Where did you get that idea?

Reasons for d10 over d6: * Easier to do scatter: d10's have an obvious pointing direction, which has to be painted on a d6. * More design space to differentiate between units and armies.

My guess is no. If this deal is as big as they imply it is, they'll splash it on the news feed for the website rather than wait for a monthly magazine release. And probably send press releases to TMP, Gaming Report and a bunch of other gaming news sites as well.

Buying your miniatures painted makes Wargaming more accessable to the general public but doesn't it 'kill' part of the fun of Wargaming it a little too. Um, no. If you've got multiple tables of terrain, with every inch painted and sculpted, then you can whine about how modeling is gone from the gam...

As long as they offer the old models at the old prices everyone wins... which I find to be a dubious possibillity. They will eventually make them more expensive as a specialty item. I don't see why they'd make them a specialty item, unless they actually become a specialty item. That is to say, if t...

A Honor Harrington RPG is already in playtest, by Ad Astra Games.

Don't know what RCN is, but I doubt Ad Astra is looking at it; they made Saganami Island Tac...

It's pretty similar, from what I can tell. The rules are online, and BGG has reviews up, so checking it out doesn't have to be expensive.

Re: Target/Save/Kill

This may be out there all ready, but I could not find it. So a unit with a 4+ target and 6+ kill is attack. A dice roll of a 4 kills a figure in the unit. If that so what is the 6+ for on the card Why? If the 6+ weren't on the card, we would get threads asking why it wasn't there. :) It's future-pr...

Agreed. Air assets wouldn't be holding up SST:Evo, for instance.
