bleh.you all think that the actual mission of the bigs is to wipe out the enemy on board.but the bugs do plan,and they do think in strategic terms,that much is given,right? so the game played might just as well be an unexpected meeting of a a patrol with a bug task force sent do destroy a commo towe...

i think it's only a simple "basic objective", kinda like "Pitched battle" in WHB-we all know that not every battle is pitched,but 9/10 the game concentrates on killing enemy anyway, so it's ok for a very simple Victory condition in basic rules. however,i do hope that proper,objective driven missions...

i'd quote that for truth,but there's no need. fluff is vital to any system,and while SST has the book and the movie, they aren't...uhm, holistic-they picture only a very small fragment of the universe, and the book, while a great picece of literature, is very sketchy when it comes to "the world",whi...

well, right now i think it's safe to assume tha the game(AT-43)is even more dead than SST in my country. the number of people who ordered the game is probably around 100 ppl, and onlytwo internet shops carry the starter set.
it's a wonder-so many sensible people amongst the wargamers 8)

maybe the leaders are priced at premium only in the "common" units rather than across the board? the champion for the skinny soldiers also seems to be free,same with raiders,so only the meatshields get to pay for their leaders.

Am simply shocked they can perform at all in such a tight environment. well, in the first league the exo players trampled pretty much anyone if they did not make any glaring mistakes. heck,in the last game i played they did pretty well despite my bad moves(well, i got owned,but it was mine inadequa...

personaly ive never totaly followed fluff as there are always exceptions. and it's all fine, the fluff is not the rules, you can break it. but having lots of "official" background is always a good idea-WHB and 40k are rather bad system, we all agree.yet they have very distinctive fluff,and simply t...

What can quickly turn into a big disadvantage. i hope you'r saying about the 12"comzone,not being able to kill enemies better? :lol: a)noone's facing you to actually spread out 12",but it gives you more felxibility. b)in the new rules the only real way to prevent leader sniping is hiding them in th...

Poko - thermic lance as a "heavy weapon" for LAMIs? Having a third "special" weapon would be an interesting idea, even though a bit w40k-ish Wink And that the regular hel flamer would be a more interesting option. just joking there- i have no idea what they did to the lance, but you won't find me m...

12" Command range are indeed stupid. of course there is also this little passage on downgrading cover into obscure when firing into enemies,but well.plus,max 12" means thatwhith a bit of thinking the enemy won't ever catch all of your guys in a single firezone. Sixguns vs Air Targets, well now you ...

he said it before the first production runs of the BFE minis came, based on the prototypes they sent him. this being said, i think that Wave 2 is better looking due to the crisis that Wave 1 caused, and hopefully SST will avoid any such mishap. oh, and the new exos rules just rock! the "improved sen...

frankly,no, re-releasing the skinnies and rewriting something in the book was not what was needed. the book's ok, and that was actually imo the least important part(althoough having things like cover adressed is nice) the biggest problem were the sculpts-there were quite a few nice ones, but way too...

still can do? it's plastic, easier to modify than the metal most of the minis were made from. as for the second part-i'm afraid that you'r rather isolated in that. in most places the game was doing not so well(for eg-when it was imported to my place, there was an initaial surge of players. half a ye...
