Will we be seeing regular army some time?

Postby Megatron » Wed Dec 20, 2006 3:35 am

To be more clear, is the only US force going to be the marines? I mean, I love a good "Seper Fi!" as much as the next guy, but alot of cool equipment is available to the Army. Namely aircav. I want my black hawks dammit!


On a somewhat simmilar note, will we be able to field armor units? Like, tank platoons and such. Just all tanks. Will that be in the cards?

Mongoose has already said different armies are already in the works. I would not be at all surprised to see a US army in addition to the marines.

and well, playing army, you can win a game with less than 50% casualties, and still be authentic :P
looking for a free set of gritty, realistic'ish scifi wargame rules ?

I would love to see platoons like in SST, with like Infantry, Armored Infantry, Airborne, and Armor. Its not as important to me in BF:Evo as it is in WWII evo, but it still will help tournament play exhist, and will put variety in each army list.

There should be Armor options in the Main Rulebook, I do believe.

I think the more important question right now is will we be getting new pictures of Wave 4? More importantly, will we be getting anything the month after Wave 4 cause there's no BFE products listed for July.

The only Transport chopper I know of so far is the Lynx, everyone else only gets a gunship for the time being.

Not this year... Unless they can get something out just before xmas, but I think its more probable that it will be Feb next year at the earliest, but thats just my wild guess.
We play CTA/SFoS (using counters and FA models), Starship Troopers (evo), 40k, Flames of War, BF EVO

RP, B5, Star Wars, and others. If you are local to Newcastle upon Tyne and fancy joining in drop me a message.
