None of my friends believed me when I said that were the rules... so I had to prove it could be done:

lol

well the rear gunner would sit down in the back middle on floor (thats why MG cant shoot and carry passengers), while the mea squad leader would sit up front shotgun and give directions to driver, while the other 7 would be 3 in crewcab rear, and 4 in pick up section than can in theory take 6.

They're like those little cars at the circus that 20 or 30 clowns climb out of (hence my chuckle every time I see a technical unload!)

i think they should play like the orginal 40k battlewagons. you can carry as many troops as you want but if any fall off/out then they are casualties :)
if that vehicle is to scale you would be lucky if it could carry 6 besides the driver let alone 8 and a gunner?

Is it really that hard to believe? I live in an area with much immigrant labor and I can tell you that is a very common sight around here! Heck a vehicle that big might fit 8-12 :wink:

Hard to belive...? No not really. I know what you are talking about. They could probably fit 8 guys on the rear pick up section alone. I can see it with my minds eye.

But it looks kind of funny when you compare sizes with the vehicle and the mini itself.

I don't have a problem with the rule... but I love a good laugh so I had to crack a joke about it.

Remove the bases, and I think the pickup's scale should look more belivable.

Also, don't you remember those technicals in Black Hawk Down? There were technicals overflowing with like 12+ militial men.

Well, there's only three major groups... Fatah, Hamas, and Hesbolla. They're obviously not Hezbolla... I'm be more inclined to say Fatah, since I think Hamas is green based.

Hezbolla is yellow.


and Ghostwolf, you're right...you's is funnier

It looks to be some sort of subfaction or unit under Hamas.

Having just bought and assembled a 1:72 Challenger and British Infantry and compared them to my BFEvo versions the scale IS off

Either the men are too big or the vehicles too small but the scale isn't correct.
The Challengers are almost identical in size but the BFEvo infantry are FAR bigger than the 1:72s
Into the Fire: 4th place
Wheel of Fire: 9th place
Gaelcon 2006: 2nd place
