  1. No need, IWM many years ago lost its scale basis. Assaults, such as the Templar, are very much in scale with CAVs... and I am not kidding you. The only thing that may look smallish is the cockpit, but truthfully you could field a Tempar or a new Warhammer in a section of Dictators and they are in scale to each other So either CAV is not N scale (which I know is not the case) or IWM is producing suposedely mciroarmor in N Scale by the by they did the same with the Clicky version, and it was a decision made many years ago to proudce the smaller units (infantry) in the actual scale.
  2. Ok been following this thread with somewhat of an interest... So here is an honest mechanical comparison Yes there are differences BTech 3025 especially it is a game that empahsises resource management in many ways. You have three resources to manage when playing Tech: Heat Armor Ammo The heat factor goes down in 3050 and later. The game plays the best (according to many) at the lance level or bellow... that is four units, and it EMPHASIZES Mecha. The BattleMech is truly the king of the battlefield. (We have done very large games... and they were fun, but pack a
  3. In all seriousness may your friend come home in one piece from Iraq, or wherever they post him. Dang it, this is ... oh never mind...
  4. Yes but the aplications they are looking at them are not FOR GIANT WALKING ROBOTS There are two places where they are looking at them because of their inherent advantages. Space exploration, see JPL and that one will see the light of day before any military aplication. Oh and that one is being done in plain sight The other, insofar as the military is concerned, is small bipedal machines, closer to either Heavy Gears or Power Armor, depending on your definition. Look at it this way... if I am a tanker and I can see you before yuo can see me... who do you think is going to loose this
  5. Ah yes the fact that we can already build these things if we chose to.... Sorry, for being cynical but the ability to build pretty advanced robotics has been around since oh at least the early 1990s Here are some places you may want to visit The Leg Lab (MIT) and for the record one of my favorite places. They have so much info of value is not even funny. Oh JPL is also a good place, since a human sized robot is under development for International Space Maintainace. The Honda labs, they have this cute little thing that oh happens to be a robot, bipedal and capable of going up

    At the risk of sounding like a broken record, that is your syle (and incidentally mine, when I run MW3 games Mechs ARE window dressing), But that is not the style of most mecha heads I know off. Heck gone back to the ol' campaign and yes Mechs are still window dressing... and not cenral to the story either. Then agaiin the campaign has grown in directions that FASA or FANPRO woudl ever go to... ALIENS... Drake's Law you know the drill... but Mecha remain as window dressing. That is MY style and that is YOUR style... the other day reading some posts on the MW 3 list I realized just how rare we

    Of note Alternity is not covered under any version of the OGL or SRD. This is a proprietary gaming engine develioped specificially for Alternity and their modern game... which was abandoned right before the OGL was released to the world and D20 3.0. Again it is not covered under ANY SRD. But who knows, WoTC may be willing to sell the engine for the right price.
  8. DON'T, will tell you why... as years pass and you get better some days you will say... but I am not getting any better... I am not going to get any better So you look back at those first models you painted and go UGH, I guess I have. I still have somehwere in storage my first dwarf cannoneers and cannon, and my first Mech... Heck I don't think I have repainted many minis. When we teach the kids how to paint I sometimes take to the store those first minis... when they see those minis and then see what I can do after ten years and spare change, and many minis later... they can see the p
  9. Nice looking mini but just one sugestion, THIN your paints... it will look even better. Sorry, the painter in me had to butt in... but when you think them you will achieve better results and the brush strokes will not be obvoous either. (A problem of digital photography any and all defects or perceived defects are maginified) And yes I do like that mini personally
  10. Hmmm I am no computer maven but if you are having problems going to more than one site you may want to purge your cookie repository, for a lack of a better tem (ok I took the class years ago so I do not quite remember the name, just how to get to it) All sites leave cookies in your drive, try purging them off and then restarting the computer, yep when you do that the cookie for this site will also be gone so when you come back you will notice it will lag a tad, as it creates a new cookie. The other thing you can try before doing that is lowering your security setting, for navigation...
  11. Check your cookie settings
  12. Trust me I know it is not easy. In fact it is very hard That is why it has taken us about three years to finally decide we need to do this Once the game company has a website running it will be up. That said, I am aware of the realities of publishing, in more ways than one. I am also aware of the realities of launching a company. One of the problems that new gaming companies have is lack of good capitalization... (one reason why they comne and go), another problem that many new game companies have is marketing. Again one aspect that is very hard to overcome when you are a s
  13. And that will keep the current fanbase that is still involved, well involved Again another thing I see that they are implementing, ONLINE support BRAVO! LOUD CLAPPING, GOOD LUCK!
  14. Give it time padawan, as the game is being written and developped as we speak... well not quite, it takes a tad of time off the creative process. And Reaper is known for QUALITY MINIATURES not games... Nobody has said that their minis are not top notch, as they are top notch and cheap. Unfortunately (or fortunately) they do not produce what we need right at the moment, but fear not we found a small minis company putting exactly what we needed, and also quite high in quality... generic MODERN. Last time I checked Reaper did not produce that. If they do, when they do... I expect them to be o
  15. Sorry this is the way it looks from my POV And yes the game is dead, but for very few places I could compare it with oh Classic BTech... or many other games that are played at the hobbyist level... heck I could compare it with games that have never been relased but were the best thing since sliced bread. Why do you think they are doing a relaunch? V 2.0 with a year in between is a relauch (BRAVO CLAPPING IN THE BACKGROUND, IT IS NEEDED... is this clear enough for you?) As to questioning the fluff, I know how much work goes into it... but I also know the promises made. I know yo
