This place is getting a little like Twin Peaks, rather bizarre and whacky.

Mongoose made them, i didn't.
Yeah, they made some promises. Later on it turned out they were unable to live up to them. But can you blame them for misconduct? For making promises anyone should have known were unrealistic? For showing blatant incompetence? I've found no reason to answer any of those question with a Yes. Would you bear a grudge against someone who failed to live up to a promise but still did what he could to make up for it?

That would depend on the nature of the promise.

If those Ebay stats don't send a chill down your spine...
Then thats bizarre.

We sre still NDA'd up to the eyeballs. All I can tell you is that I , really and truly, believe you will not feel you have wasted your time, effort or money when you see what is going to happen. Oh, and your prediction of first quarter 08 is a good one.
Are you saying that we won't be seeing new models until 2008? If so, will we AT LEAST know what this big third party announcement is BEFORE 2008?

This is not the stock market, so I'm not going to panic-sell just because someone else does. Those Ebay stats mean that someone is disillusioned with the game. I'm not going to be just because he is, unless he can make an argument for why I should be.

I think i'll go and finish painting my Airfix Chieftain 1/72 tank.
Perfect for those MEA moments of joy.
I'll probably be back better later to oppress you all with my blatant 21st century consumerism :lol: :lol: :P :lol:

Maybe repack the game in a box like the old starship troopers, big rule book, 2 small armies unpainted, and each month sell unpainted figs...

The 2 armies could be USA vs USSR, like the new 360 game called ENDWAR....

Thats set in 2020+ i think

And then add MEA and other units to follow, add old units for the same above set in 1980`s like world in conflict...?

I love the system, just wished it was more like the old box sets that everybody else does.....

Long live Evo.....

Keep the setting as it is, but the EFTF might need looking at. I can't really see that happening in the Europe we live in... :wink:

Perhaps a three faction setting would be better? NATO with US, British, European and Commonwealth forces, PRC and MEA?

For the Ebayers that are still with the game, there are currently around 200 auctions for BFE stuff. Most of them are very cheap compared to retail prices. Hey why not take advantage of the others that are jumping ship. I know I would if I didnt already have everythin I needed for my PLA.

Here's the link:

Clearly regardless of when new miniatures are released the agreement will be in place beforehand. You really think we aren't going to be running to keyboards everywhere to shout out the good news? :wink:

Dude, the game where it's USA vs. USSR is WORLD IN CONFLICT!!! And that's set in an alternate 1989.

EndWar takes place in 2020 where the coldwar did end and it has the USA, RUSSIA(as we know it today), and a European federation going up against each other.
