  1. Howie Long is too old to play Cap now. Like all other comic based movies, the best we can hope for is that they don't suck. Studios are missing the boat on some of the more easily done comic based movies. OMAC, Deathlok, Green Arrow, Warlord etc. etc. where tons of money don't have to be spent on special efffects and more money can be thrown at good scripts. Sgt.Rock(2008) Could be great. Thor(2009) Depends on who plays him Deadman(2008) Wasn't a great comic, I don't expect the movie to be great, plus it's been done over and over. DoomPatrol(2008) Could be okay, but ag
  2. What papabees said is exactly right. The "capability degrades" thing is a RAGE core mechanic but other than that the games play completely different.
  3. I operated on nothing but FRAGO's for almost a month once.
  4. Lieutenants can have maps, they can even have compasses, they just aren't allowed to have both at the same time.
  5. Oh yes! Robotech and Battle of the Planets were awesome! EDIT: Look what I found..
  6. It's cheesy now but wow I loved this when I was a kid. Similiar but a variation on the Comet Empire intro.
  7. Where's Crazy8 when I need him? Oui mon frere..the Terrans ARE the scariest thing out there. Terrans have the most flexible troop composition rules with their faction Special Abilities. With the Air Superiority doctrine Terrans are capable of fielding two sections of aircraft for every primary section they have and recieve a completely free air strike every turn. With the Artillery superiority doctrine you recieve a free artillery strike every turn and ALL your models recieve the ability to "call-in" purchased strikes. The Terrans are pretty much the only faction NOT bent on conque
  8. If you want 'em bad enough you have to be willing to take that responsibility. I'll admit that it simply never occurred to me. There you are. I'm keeping the forum interface separate from the main site on purpose, by the way. kit Just "wow".....
  9. Not if you change the proxy rule to simply say the proxy model is twice the height of the size of the proxied models base.
  10. "height equal to the longest side of that model's base." You realize that puts a cavalry models LOS point above it's head, right?
  11. I realize you're trying to establish parameters that you have beeen given to work within but if you were the sort of person who did what you mentioned I simply wouldn't play you. I think everyone can agree that the models in a tabletop game represent something that is in fact in motion. A sword blade should in no way cause LOS to be blocked and to think otherwise is just silly. The top of the "head" of a CAV isn't the cockpit and there doesn't seem to be any problem with LOS using "top of head to top of head" as a rule of thumb or in any other game I've ever played. No LOS rule is goi
  12. 20+ years of functional cargo pockets we couldn't use and now we can use them but they aren't functional
  13. "height equal to the longest side of that model's base." Still more complex than it needs to be. Eyes aren't generally located at the belt line either. Line of sight should be determined by whether or not a straight, unobstructed line can be drawn from the top of one models head to the top of another models head. One, it's closer to "eye line" and two, with a table full of models it's easier to acccomplish without knocking things over and three, it can be accomplished with a bit of string. Now, if such a straight line can drawn then LOS exists. From there it's a simple matter of decid
  14. Real Sergeants- 1.Can cuss for ten minutes without ever repeating a word. 2. Have a spine. 3. Can play a cherry Lieutenant like a finely tuned instrument. 4. Can see in the Dark. 5. Have eyes in the back of their heads. 6. Still don't trust the Russians. 7. Still hate the French. 8. Don't know how to be politically correct. 9. Don't give a damn about being politically correct. 10. Think that "politically correct" should fall under S### in the UCMJ. 11. Love deployments because there is less paperwork and more "real work." 12. Can run 5 miles with a hangover.
  15. Friendly fire - isn't. Recoilless rifles - aren't. Suppressive fires - won't. You are not Superman; Marines and fighter pilots take note. A sucking chest wound is Nature's way of telling you to slow down. If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid. Try to look unimportant; the enemy may be low on ammo. If at first you don't succeed, call in an air strike. If you are forward of your position, your artillery will fall short. Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself. Never go to bed with anyone crazier than yourself. Never forget that your weapon was made by
  16. 1. Dig a big hole in your back yard and live in it for 30 days straight. 2. Go inside only to clean the house. On weekends, you can eat in the house, but you can't talk. 3. Pour 10 inches of nasty, crappy water into your hole, then shovel it out, stack sandbags around it and cover it with a sheet of old plywood. 4. Fill a backpack with 50 pounds of kitty litter. Never take it off outdoors. Jog everywhere you go. 5. Every couple of weeks, dress up in your best clothes and go the scummiest part of town, find the most run down trashy bar you can, pay $10 per beer until you're
  17. Bring a weapon. Preferably, bring at least two. Bring all of your friends who have weapons. Bring their friends who have weapons. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive. Only hits count. Close doesn't count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough, nor using cover correctly. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.) If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a big weaponand a friend with a big
  18. She's exaggerating. About the wings.
  19. Or use Zap-A-Gap accelerator, or do both.
  20. I doubt it too. If it does it will be in a very limited quantity as giveaways, if at all. I'd check back here on Monday to get an official answer.
  21. Myabe we could get Bile to carry one or two of them also...
