  1. It's less Munchtastic than RT or DW. I like that your above average but other wise reasonabaly normal people with some serious trainingh or perhaps you've bean around the block once or twice (or maby a combonation of both), going out there and doing somthing. then again I'm not realy a fan of "Acenchion" level games for the most part. so I think it more has to do wiuth Power Levling than feel of the game.
  2. After having his Brain Dry Cleend and Pressed that much even if he dose rember who he was is he realy still that person? or just someone living in his old body with some of his old menories.
  3. Commissars before they can take the job have to serve a term as a Storm Trooper or Feild Police then go to OCS then a term as a Storm Trooper or Feild Police Officer then they go to Commissars School. ofcause they start their lives as Orphans in the Schola Progenium. atleast according to the Fluff, but some units "Police Their Own" and apoint (unoffichial) Commissars from their own seinor NCO's and Officers.
  4. Also if you go for "Best" quality you get the WS Bonous and the +1 Damage, also if you start to use Bolt weapons the GM will start using enimes that can stand up to them, that means you need either Stormtrooper Carapace or Power Armor to survive their attacks. this is a good way to sneek a power up past the GM, without costing yourself the stars.
  5. That's correct Union & Reich together with the Generic tokens no longer fit in to the Core Box with the Insert, I dread taking the insert out as for the Chaos it would cause, anyone got any thoughts on what to do as I mostly lug Tannhauser to away games (when I can get one, that isn't that often thease days.
  6. If your not attacking you can slip past overwatch, or if your attacking an opponent mental Duel to not spring overwatch and be immune to counter attack, entering through non standrd start points, that kind of thing.
  7. We already had a Melee army before the Matriarchy came along, it was called the Reich, I was thinking of Japan as a Stealth/Melee army with Magical Backup instead of a Shock/Melee army like the Reich.
  8. Problem is Japan didn't get hi-tech till the 60's, this is due to miss-allocation of their Techs, about the only things they where doing good from the 20's till 45 was Naval Avasion, Ship Building and Bio-Weapons. Japan if it's done should be all Neo-Samurai, Ninja and Shintoism.
  9. True but due to the source meterial, none are "Action" Babes, so you need to Brake Type like FFG did with Yuri.
  10. Team needs a Babe, perhaps as an expansion character, may I suggest Dame Victoria Windsor of the SOE, very much for the Brain work (Archaeology, Reasoning)
  11. OK, ATM in the shops their are copies of the game that include the Revised Rules, and those without, their is a sticker on the back of the Box to mark the ones that have the revised rules, some stores and distributors may still be trying to clear old stock so their are still some 1st ed copies of the game out there. the ones strait from FFG come with the Revised Rules book You don't need the Expansions, but it makes the game better, any complexety added is optional, the 1st ed rules are included in the single Figure packs along with the Minituere Character Card, Character tokens and Bonus Tokens, the Revised Ed Rules are included in the Revised Edition Book, the Troops Packs are for 2nd ed and include the rules for the new Tokens that come in the pack. the Expansion Characters and Troop Packs add more options to you game allowing you to vary your force structure so you can try different tactics Novgorod is a Map Expansion, it adds a new Map and a new Faction, the Revised rules for everything in Novgrod appear in the Revised Rules. upcoming is Daedalus, Two new Maps, Campaign Rules, Campain Tokens, Bonus Tokens, a Campaign and a few odds and ends. Also coming are new Hero "Single" Figure packs (al in revised ed rules) the first being Hoax. If your undicided about the game buy the PDF of the revised rules (or DL the free preview that is still available on the Suport page) and have a read before you buy the Boxed sets and start buying Expansion Characters and Troop Packs.
  12. No, different colours, different paths, unless the weapon has a spechial Rule like Strife or Doom
  13. Ok, got all kind of weirdness cooking in my brain ATM, one that hit me as I slept was what would Section B of Capitan Mac-Neal's band of cohorts look like? for Grunts there would be your mixed bag of Alpha, Delta and Omega Commandos, but what of the Team Leaders? anyway I've hit on the following, just names and backgrounds so far. Lieutenant Cord Stone, came up as an Alpha Commando, not as sharp as the Capitan (but not by much) he's quicker on his feet and perhaps a touch tougher. Packs a Flash Gun, has a HB-3 Visor (Dropped to open up an option on the Command Pack). Don't know what to give him as a special item though, skills Hand to Hand, Stragety, Command & Nerves of Steel. Corporal Alex Fox, originally a Omega Commando, she can and will kick your ass, HtH, Athletics, Dexterity and Sneak skills. her Special Item is a Sword she nicked during the Castle Ksiaz raid, she carries a Trench-gun or a S&W 1917. Sergeant Marty "Tiger" Chen, Weapons & Technical Specialist, Airborne Demolition Squad, HtH, Engineering, Mechanics and Weaponry skills. Again stuck for special item but armed with a MK-19-A1. also cooking up a Bonus (non 42nd Union) Character with HtH Reasoning, Archaeology & Nerves of Steel
  14. Panzartroopen 5/5/4/7 5/4/4/6 4/4/3/5 Hand to Hand Special Object: Gefectspanzer, A combination of laminated metal plates and steel mesh mystically reinforced with occult sigials and runes it affords slimmer protection to the Union BG-42 vest but using only terrestrial materials and U-World energies. Hardware: If you roll a Natural 10 on any shock roll to resist an attack with a Pistol Weapon or Automatic Weapon, all attack roll successes are canceled. Combat Pack: Mauser C96, Stielhandgrenate, Extra Ammo Stamina pack: Mauser C96, First Aid kit, Vitamultian Command Pack: Mauser C96, The Dragons Teeth, Elite Vitamultian: A potent cocktail of pain killers and stimulats that when taken in high doses allows the user to act with almost supernatural abilities, but the drugs components are each highly addictive and even short term use can cause serious mental and physical health problems. Hardware until the end of the players next round the character acts as if unwounded and with a +1 Value to all Characteristics. The Dragons Teeth: or more correctly Drachenzahn are a brotherhood of Panzertroopen who specialise in brutal assaults, their Elite skills and Esprit d' Corps are almost legendary. Rank Discard this token to add 1 command point to your sides pool once per game. Elite: Through either natral ability or extensive training some have that little bit extra that mark them as Elite. Ability add one dice to all the characters dice pools.
  15. 1. the Automatic trait gives you the number of dice to use for making your attack, fail the roll and the weapon doesn't work (goes wiled, fails to prime or whatever), at least that's how where playing it till their is an official ruling 2. although it was disallowed to have two VOIVOIDE with the same equipment in the original rules it appears to have bean dropped from the revised edition. 3. the Tokens ate just to keep track of where the VOIVOIDE are for use of the Rebirth ability and R.U.R.
