    My gut feeling on the Mongols is that they would stop eventually, for much the same reason they did historically: The big man dies and they have to go back to figure out who the next one will be.

    I don’t do much medieval gaming but it’d be a fun exercise in any event no doubt. Remind of me playing Crusader Kings 2 on the computer.

     

    The what-if I might do in the future is a tongue-in-cheek 2nd american civil war. Communist northerners versus Theocratic southerners. Not very serious at all but I don’t know if I’ll ever get around to it.

    Infantry based in teams or individually?

     

    Thanks! 🙂

    So if I was playing this, how many dudes and vehicles would I have on a normal table?

    Ivan, Units using cover and behaving tactically because they are being shot at is not the same as units being supressed. The former is a tactical situation, while the latter is a forced situation and can severely limit what the unit can do, to the extent of making it inoperative. Jurgen

     

    Exactly. That’s why it should be handled in two different manners 🙂

    There’s two things at play here really:

    On one hand, there’s the fact that any unit taking fire, no matter how well trained, will operate somewhat less effective. In FAD, I did this by marking all units that are shot at “Under Fire”. This limits movement in the open and penalizes shooting.

    The effect is automatic and cannot be avoided. Any unit taking shots will be degraded to some extent but it doesn’t prevent them from taking any actions.

     

    Particularly heavy fire or artillery can cause a unit to get pinned down, preventing them from acting. This requires a weight of fire depending on their training levels.
    Training will influence whether a unit “loses it” and becomes ineffective temporarily.

    Your film list is spot on. For some books, I’ll add Forever War / Forever Peace. Not only two of my favourite books of all time, but fantastic military scifi and it’s a refreshing change of pace that the author isn’t obnoxiously gung ho about war.

    The idea of destructible cover is a very good one.

    Thanks! Going for a bit more of a techy vibe. Most scifi gaming is “vietnam in space” which I dig, but maybe it’s time for something a bit different 🙂

    Appreciate the votes of confidence 🙂 It’ll be a few months out, but that gives me time to learn how to paint these little buggers.

    With bases done. The transports are from Darkest Star but I hope you don’t mind them hitching a ride with the competition 🙂

    Is there a “painting and modelling” forum? I see one for terrain so maybe I am just blind? Thanks!

    In what sense? Do you mean like preparation and techniques for getting models ready? Or a WIP of your work type area? I imagine most could probably go into the relevant period forum? Depends what you had in mind though…

    Painting tips, prepping mini’s, bases, conversions and so forth. WIP might belong in hte appropriate genre forum but a lot of general painting tips are very generic.

    I wonder if there’s a market for a generic system for this. The rolls would be stuff like you mention and then players translate it into their own rules as they see fit.

    Hmm

    If you give me another week or two, Five Parsecs From Home will have more than you ever bargained for, but in more of a Traveller/Firefly/Laserburn style of trading and (lots of) random events.

    I had some simple stuff in FiveCore but it’s tied a bit more into the system.  If you want, I can dig up the injury table I use and post it later.

    Now it works, weird.

    It’s a wicked fun game though there’s definitely areas where you can tell you’re supposed to play co-op and not alone. I’m usually rocking the Commando since the turrets make solo’ing it a lot easier.

    How far along in the story of 2 are you?

    Suppression is one of those things that has as many answers as there are games 🙂

    Some games have it as part of the dice results (Stargrunt), some build it into the activation mechanic (A freebie set called Slammer did this), some have it as a side effect of combat (Necromunda), some have it happen automatically (my own FAD rules)

    The idea of “self-suppression” like in FUBAR and Forge of War (I think it was called) is a neat twist too. For my FiveCore game, it’s a separate die rolled. (You roll Kill and Shock dice when you shoot).

    I imagined that’d suit you well 🙂

    I was going to reply to your 6mm thread here but for some reason it insists I have to log in, though I’m already logged in.

    I’ll have some pics of your 6mm infantry painted up, though my paint jobs are pretty amateur compared to yours.

    One more trooper on board 🙂

    Ivan Sorensen, Danish but living in the US for a stint. The author of some games (FiveCore, FAD, Five Men in Normandy) and generally interested in 20th century skirmishing and some science fiction gaming. Usually a 15mm gamer but looking to move down in scale (6 and 10mm)

    My WW2 gaming has mostly been Nuts and Crossfire though it looks like Chain of Command will supplant both.

    For scifi, we’ve played a bit of everything: 40K Rogue Trader, 5150, Stargrunt II, Beam Strike, Warzone 1st edition and various other things.

    After a bit of a break from scifi, I am coming back into it, though it seems I may be transitioning to 6mm to  a large extent. I think the goal will be 6mm for military actions and 15mm for more character driven stuff.
