I'm a Heinlein fan and a veteran of 3 decades of gaming ... SST wasn't very well known in my old neighborhood, and I just started to dabble in this game to discover all the challenges of collecting and readying the figs but I do like the game a lot so I'm really hoping things will pick up by summer ...

:( Yeah, I'm ticked ! But what's the deal with this Thoughthammer biz ? They're closed til Jan 2, and I notice their policy is to Charge you right away and wait to ship if any part is "out" :? So if one item out of 8 turns out to be suddenly "over-sold" because in the last week that they've been awa...

just a thought

Shouldn't there be a way, maybe with those big Tunneling bugs, to make a cave-in during a game ? And wouldn't any wheeled or tracked ground vehicles, stuff without jump-jets, be especially vulnerable to cave-ins ?

SST miniatures "Cover"

I've never played in an SST tournament so on re-reading the rules carefully for the effects of cover I wonder if I'm a victim of English-English vs. American-English or simply stubborn ... Do the various point modifiers for cover effect the Target roll made by the attacker, or the save roll made by ...

It's a lot simpler to re-do the RPG, those ranges are foolish and utterly contrary to the spirit of the Novel - the real/best source. As I said on a different page, I understand the appeal of Tanks and such ... but that's that Other Game ... it's already been done ... I'm not even above "stealing" a...

I'll remind the managers of my LGS & locations where I'm demo'ing SST but I know already (at two out of four) that they're a little underwhelmed/unimpressed of late ... telling them wait til summer doesn't seem like a strong gambit ... suggestions ?

wish I could convince my local store to restock or even order SST, too much has sat on the shelf for too long - too few players, too little support they say

success !

The event went well, SST following is small but growing, played a "seize and hold" scenario twice, Bugs won both times - check out forums at www.thegamematrix.com for more details. Maybe next year the company can give us some support.

I'm new and have only played a few games with a couple of opponents but obviously if Tunneling is little used then it must be too weak or too high priced, either way due for a tune-up. Tunneling is certainly part of the canon, novel and film.
