Figures are forever, Rules are ephemeral

I agree with Dr.Bedlam; scale creep seems more of a problem than changes to rules or basing sizes. Some manufacturers are worse than others about this. While I do enjoy having big, nicely detailed figures to paint and display it is frustrating when you find that older units of your army look like malnourished dwarves.

      I recently ordered some POD rules through Amazon, since that wasn’t an option in the DriveThru RPG version, and I’m old school enough that it’s a lot easier for me to learn a set of rules I actually intend to play from a paper copy.  
       
      Anyway, Amazon’s algorithms decided that I probably also wanted Fantastic Battles by Nic Wright (doing business as “Irregular Wars” but apparently published in collaboration with Ganesha Games, makers of A Song of Blades and Heroes etc.).
       
      It is apparently both scale and miniatures agnostic, with the base unit mounted on squares (although there are options for rectangular bases).  Since all of my mass battle fantasy figures are on 60mm squares, this seemed like it would be easy enough to test out.
       

       
      I’m drawing up a couple of small orders of battle; at “500 points”, my first army looks to have 10 bases of troops and 4 characters.  The recommended game size on a 4x6 table with 60mm bases would be up to 1000 points, or perhaps twice that.  I’ll report back when I get a battle fought…

      "Starting with the latest expansion to the GURPS Action series (see Warehouse 23), your pledge of $3 secures you a PDF copy of GURPS Action 8 - Twists. This 10-page PDF, written by Sean Punch, aims to shake things up. "

      10 PDFs for as little as $3 seems like a deal.

      Is Jamming an ECM signal an active process that must be maintained like current Electronic Warfare counter Measures or is it more like an EMP that just turns off ECM?
       
      In practice:
       
      If my Talon activates ECM to block Target-Locks, then my opponent successfully Jams my ECM with his warden, is my ECM gone until next turn or would it be back if I immediately destroy the warden that jammed my ECM on my next activation during that turn?

      So someone tipped me off about 32mm Harry Potter figures at Wal Mart. For about a buck each.

       They're a bit big and not as detailed as I would like, but DM Scotty's Facebook group has noted that when you strip that enamel off, the detail improves. Pictured here, we have the Harry Potter line, but they also have Street Fighter, WWF, Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel, and DC figures, as well as these display/playset things. It ain't easy to find metal figures for a buck a pop these days, so I figured I'd say something; my students will be earning some of these in the weeks to come... and I'll be "improving" the spares I bought...
