Was talkin' to Sammy. How you feel about War at Sea or Xwing?

I can be at Gen X tomorrow.

...btw....I have been finding discrepancies in the BVs of some elemental suits between the TROs and the MUL; which is correct?

Can you give a specific example?

The values in RS3058u are higher: (3058u) HMG-415, Flamer-404; (MUL) HMG-308, Flamer-300   ....stuff like that.

With my X-wing gear currently "disorganized" (or unopened), I would like to go with War at Sea please.

I will have my Battletech gear on hand as well.

The nature of the MUL software is that BA figures usually have to default to four-trooper squads. I've put in a request for them to at least put the 5 and 6-suit values in the notes, especially for Clan suits. For now, I'd stick with the values in RS 3058u unless you're running 4-man squads.

Depends on how much energy I have after working this weekend. I'll see if I can put together a force in case I can make it.

So I was putting together "Colby's Commandos" from the Intro/AGoAC novella and found a BIG inconsistency. In part one, the unit deploys 2 Locust and 1 Commando; in part two, they use 3 Commandos in a fight (no Locusts). I'm curious as to which arrangement is correct.

btw.... the unit has 8 mechs: BV w/ Locusts 7575pt; BV w/ Commandos 7793pt. I plan on using Durant Carlyle's pilot card and add a couple of specials to other mechs. (though not enough to hit 8000)

I'm working on the Kurita force.

and yes, I just pre-ordered two of the Wolf Dragoons force packs.  :thumbsup:

That would be a question for the Ask the Writers forum. :)

Alright, so work is being screwy with our vacations, but I'm gonna show up on the tenth anyway. Are we gonna go ahead and schedule our swap meet for then? I can write up a post and advertise in the usual spots for us. My other question is: grinder? Alpha strike? scenario?what do we want to do? I Also have my heroscape terrain I can bring, or we can use something else, but I figure if we have an open invite, having 3d terrain would make a good impression.

Grinder works for me, kinda like how we usually do our Solaris games?

Got a few more thoughts, lemme ponder them a bit and post later.

That’s what I had in mind. Plus we can add some spice with the new initiative deck >:D
I’ll write up a post tonight when I get home from work and post it here for you guys to review.

We used the "basic" rules for the initiative deck in our Alpha Strike game; made for a fun game. (well for some of us)  :D

OOPS .... I did it again .... I picked the latest X-wing releases: the Resistance Y-wing 2-pack and the First Order Squadron set (a reworked Interceptor and 2 FO Bombers)

Cool. I'll post around the usual places then. I guess I'll bring my Heroscape Terrain. If you guys will bring the trees we used to use, that should be the only other thing we will need.

Stone wasn't cryo frozen. He just got stuck in a freezer Hans Moleman style and we felt bad about it. So we made up this lie.

I'm up for Garlands. How about a 30-pt two-car street race? If I can get it printed out, I've got a map we can try. 🙂
