  1. Start at http://www.m41a.com of course :)

     

    I just recently did the Crush the web thing for this very Item.

    2 Flavors out there.

    Resin

    Shell Kit to encase an Airsoft Thompson m1a1 Replica.

     

    both are a bit pricy.

    there is also a Paintball company that made a thin plastic Shell for a Spyder Gun.

     

    Start with m41a, it covers almost everything.

    there are also interesting Writeups on http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk for both a Pulse, and a Starship Troopers Morita. (projects section)

  2. ROFLMAO! :lol:

     

    Flux capacitor! Didn't know that Delorean was making CAVs!!!!!!!

     

    <thinking a Stainless steel CAV might look good next to the Gold plated Dictator....> :B):

  3. I would have been more impressed with a Paintball Gun or an Airsoft MG.

     

    They might be someplace where their Govt has them Restricted though.

     

    Nothing worse than having to re-create a Potato Gun just to have your CAV look Decent........ :grr:

     

    ED209 it is not, but hey, start somewhere!!!!!

     

    Now they just need to get it walking, not shuffling....... :blues:

  4. I Guess that Depends on how the Infantry are deployed, and if they have any Say in the matter. :poke:

     

    Not that I would wish it on anyone, but *DUMP* is alot faster than "please remain seated until the ride comes to a complete stop" :blink:

  5. Personally, I have Found that a Minimum for a reasonable chance for a 1 round kill is 2 on 1 of roughly equal points.

     

    ex. 2 Dictators on one assassin.

     

    the Mantis is the Latest Brawler in the Superiority Category, but it doesn't mean it's the only one :poke: However, for this Question, it should be at least 1-2 of your Selected 4.

  6. I Try to Group My Units based on Task.

     

    Anti Hard units all go together.

    Anti soft with other Support Units.

    Infantry on their own. :B):

     

     

    Why will I Group all my Anti Hard units together by themselves? Math. It seems to take me 2 units to eradicate 1 unit of roughly the same Value in one Turn.

    Maximum Return for the least Return Fire.

    Example.

    2 Dictators on one Assassin. almost always get a Kill, and even if you don't you should have a crippled Straggler where there was a Competent Fighter. :ph34r:

     

    If I am that worried about Soft / Small Targets, I will activate My Support / Anti Soft Stuff First.

     

    I Rarely Split a Section between Support/Andti Soft and Anti Hard. I Usually Run Them all in one, so that each can concentrate on it's secialty First, then Support it's Team Second.

     

    Make a Plan. Gather your Forces. Organize Sections. Stick to the Plan As Long as possible. Improvise as needed, and don't be afraid to Throw a Curveball every now and then. :wacko:

  7. Hmmmm

     

    1 Mastadon @390

    vs

    3 Banshees at 3x136 = 408.

     

    Open Field? My Money is on the Mastadon. +4 ARM and a +10 Gun. only need to kill one a turn. the +4 ARM virtually eliminates the 3x+5 main guns of the Banshees. That, and the Mastadon has Range by 8" for the Main Gun, and 16" for the IF.

     

    any Decent Cover Changes this to the Banshees.

     

    I have Taken a Mastadon 1 on 1 with A Dictator, and a Nice Piece of Lvl 3 Terrain. Simple Stab and Run.

     

     

    I have Seen Mastadons OSOK (one Shot one Kill) with a reasonable roll, and a Blown ARM Roll. I have also Stood IN FRONT of one, and shrugged off a 24 for 2 points of Damage. Returned 'em too ::D:

     

    It all Depends on Who has invested how much in the little beasties. For the base Model, I Agree, not a Huge Threat, but with 1 or 2 upgrades, can become DANGEROUS!

     

    Then again, this can be said of aKahn for goodness sakes..... :ph34r:
