I finally found some time and was able to read this. This is really good Alex, I like it alot. First it is to the point, you give enough BG to excite the imagination of the player. You cover the two main factions, all in two pages. You know me I like it short. You can get to playing alot quicker.
Your stats are on target and you do not fol with unneccassry attributes. You do not need the walker attibute if the game is all walkers.
There are two things I would have liked to seen. First has to do with the last point I made. Since you do not use the walker att. You may want to think about make it clear to the players these mechas move as troopers in the FOW mechanics.
Second and total non-important, I would like to have seen a scenario that you could jump right into without having to do any math to create the units or the story.
All in all a great job and where I have always envisioned FOW going.
Your right I should of used the walker attribute. But ill be honest, I didn't know there was one before I wrote it . I was going back over the rules and saw that you put alot more effort into giving each vechicle alot of statistics (Unfourtantly I use a very light interuptation when I write suplements ) But you are right they should have walker statistics.
I want to write more of these short and sweet suplements. Set piece games are very enjoyable for me, and two page quick things will be even more .
Another expansion! MAN I am behind! Well the version I read...3 I believe...was good. I liked that added the two new factions and the new mechas. I agree with shaun about spicing it up,but I would also suggest making sure you are happy with the rules first. It seems you are still working out exactly how you want them from reading your blog.
Well. Im happy with the rules and stuff. I think the only thing im not pleased with in the guide is the 5000-10000 point armies. In my mind they're supposed to be very very rare. Skirmish is the only way it should be going :\. But I did take that suggestion when I wrote the expansion pack. The graphics made it look very nice .
