I'm with Hiromoon (a few pages back) on adding the Indonesians as a sub-faction. To who? Why not the Americans, like in that bit of background where there are US troops stationed in Indonesia? I mean, our army has relied too much on the US over the last 30-40 years especially on tactics and know-how. Sure, today's Indonesian armed forces are equipped with German assault rifles and light armored vehicles, flying around in Russian jets and assault choppers. But, who knows in 10-15 years from now? Our current prez, a former general, was trained in the US. Also, we don't want to piss them off too much. Same goes to China, but the Indon. government is usually "friendlier" to the US than to China...

I don't know. I'm imagining: "Kopassus Scout/Recon squad" ("Grup 3/Sandhi Yudha" IRL), lightly armed, moves fast and has Elite Training, Stealthy and Infiltrate like Force Recon but with less gadgets. And cheaper too! Sorta like the LLDB in the Vietnam War perhaps?

that is completely untrue! We have 43 major units. The figure was nowhere near 118 in 82 :roll:

First, I want to see a vietnam army with retro gear. old beat up Hueys, old migs, Viet cong militia, maybe some M113's.

Second,
I want U.S. militia and rebels (Jericho style).

Finally,
I want the French Foreign Legion.

there coming soon!!

personally i want aussies... but it won't happen. Failing that IDF, Russia, Indo or a Africa list would be awesome :D

Valen is my name wrote:bulls**t did we leave you out to dry. Gallipoli - so the military planning was rubbish, but we did not **** all over you.
like i said, its just what we are taught ;)


Valen is my name wrote:As for WW2, we sent you weapons, the RN worked closely with the RAN, we helped you as much as you helped us. We also were fighting alongside your troops in the burma etc.
yeah, that was more than fine until you attempted to stop us recalling our divisions (at the time most of our army was over there) in Africa while we where trying to stop our country from being invaded by Japan (note, recent sources point out that we might of been left alone... but at the time it was seen as a certain thing ;) .) While ill understand that Britain had far, far more pressing things on her plate, surly it would be understandable that we could recall our troops to defend our country. This is what kicked us over to seeking support from the US and still dictates our foreign policy to this day.

CIVILIANS!!!!

Imagine;

A Media Van with a satelite dish ontop, witha camera/reporter team.

Peace protestors with post-signs and raised fists.

Taxidrivers and other civilian cars.

Hostages tied to chairs.

Ambulance, police vehicles, people on stretchers...

A unidentified Mob that could turn into a MEA Squad at any minute, but that are not a viable target for the opposition until they do...

Stuff like that.

Admit YOU want it!!!! Scenario galore.

/wolf
I'm so dissapointed that no one commented on my suggestion that I had to quote myself... :oops:

Anyway RUSSIANS would be a really GREAT next stepp as well if you ask me.

But Civilians ROCKS!

Okay I'll say it! Cool ideas!! I really doubt they would be made by MP. Maybe a small company would make them if this game gets off the ground. If so, they could be made in white metal to save cost, put in bags and sold. I know I would by them.

On that note, I can't sculpt that well, but maybe there is a player out there that can and would. It is not that hard to make molds for white metal minis compared to other kinds of molds.

Civilians would completely kick butt. I am totally with that. I like random third parties on the board. And peace protesters???

I think I smell a target practice opportunity in that one... heh

Well, if we can't have the American Army. I want Russia, hands down. Give me T-80s and T-90s, BMPs, Spetsnaz.... all way too cool and awesome looking camo as well.

Yes, camo is important. I ain't fielding no yellow warriors ! :evil:

So far the Brits have the best toys and the best look.

If the Germans are well tricked out with Flectarn and woodland vehicles with a complete unit list then I may just have to do a Future Born 2nd SS Panzer Division out of them... Fascist separatests from the socialist spiral of Europe...

Another suggestion would be to go really side-ways and do pre-painted Starship Trooper bugs! :)

Alien invasion baby!!!

Sorry, but in 2014 all projects with anything involving the word Black were destroyed in the Moscow Riots.

What? You didn't hear about the Black August Riots in Moscow? It happened back in 2014 when the new Regime took power, and Czar Bob took the throne....

So far he's done sweeping reforms of the vodka industry, and now Russian cars cost four pairs of blue jeans instead of two, so the economy is picking up speed again. :D

Anyway, for Sub-Facts, I'd like to see rules for Local forces available for the EFTF and USMC.... Nothing fancy mind you....
