you are,of course,aware that until the army lists are released there will be no platoons, so the lami and exos will be fielded together? and they compliment each other rather well. plus, face it, SST didn't fare badly because of the rules, but because of too many crappy minis. exos and lami being on...

Many if not most of the players from the beginning will have PAMI armies. hint,hint! if they already have the bloody pami, then they can very well do without the pre-painted versions and wait those few months till they'r released, right? it's impossible to release all things at once(unfortuatly :( ...

This strikes me as a bad move, a)the initaial releases are(in my understanding)aimed at the "outside" of the already existing SST players, and the movie and the book are far more reckognized than the kid series. plus, "cannon fodder" and "walking tanks" are very urk..vocab fails me at this hour...p...

the rules are (afaik)very simmiliar, if not identical. however, the games (again,afaik) were never ment to mesh like WM/Hordes do,they just happen to run on the same engine. so yes, the rules allow you to play the game of usmc vs bugs, but point costs, size and everythiong else will be off. that's h...

Aerials out first, then somebody starts to remodel front section to get it smaller(it's conversion! I did it to make better looking warrior! Honest!). Then scrap the turret and integrate weapons to hull... 9 times out of 10 it won't mattyer since you'll be playing a "fiendly"game. in a tournament j...

well, in Hordes you can also target a toenail of a warbeast.

while it does seem uterly stupid from sensible pov, i guess it does cut considerably on the number of LoS arguments during the game-if you can see it you can shoot it, end of story.

1. By the rules a Marauder platoon must be PL2 quick guide to PL1- take officer. take sicon training. voila, instant PL1,with all the boons of PL2. oh, and you do know that firestorm warheads are flame weapons? grab a flamberge, or in larger games a flyer in ground support mode, and see that cover ...

one word-flamers. marauder platoon has a potential to field more flamers than anyone. a squad of apes with two flamers in drop pods, and see those pathfinders toast.

this however is pure speculation, i'm yet to find a pathfinder oponent :(

center. you shoot at a certain point, up to your maximum weapon range. that point is the center of the zone. anything within 6" from that zone is an target. so, if you have a lot of dice or few targets it practically gives you addiional 6" of range in adition of your weapon's max.

Ummmmm, no... that's definitely not a good way to describe them at all... well,i'm not privy to the Playtesters Circle,so they may play diferently,but the minis we saw all consisted of "bigish" machines, seriosuly up-gunned,so i thought it was a sensible similiarity.
