Prador in the Tunnels... End Game 2 At terrifying speed a train exited the tunnel behind them and ripped straight through the rear carriages of their own vehicle. Everything went dark and the command carriage buckled was lifted in the air and tumbled over. In the sickening, shuddering screeching sp...

The problem for many UK booksellers is the Esdevium Games have a minimum order requirement so we cannot just order one or two books at a time.

Prador in the Tunnels… Part 2 The cargo lift exited into a small service station with only one set of tracks running through it. The station and connecting tunnels were swathed in darkness, whatever the Prador were doing they had not turned on the Command Systems power grid. The agents would have t...

I am using a very simple xp system. New skills cost 4x the new level the skill will go up to and stats cost 5x the new level the stat will go to. I am also very stingy with the xp in my game so advancement is pretty much teh same rate as in normal Traveller.

GW metalics are great as well as their new inks.

P3 from Privateer Press are pretty much the best range out there for consistencey and coverage.

Foundry are great for sheer volume of colours...

There were also only about 100 of them made during the entire course of the war. Your point about real world availability although spot on falls flat with points based WWII games... :wink: Which is sad really. All games like FoW and WaW have this problem.
