It's about two and a half hours north of where I live. We might have certain people come up with use both separate weeks, so it's likely that we'll be coming home for the weekend. Our scheduling for going up isn't at all strict, so things could easily be changed.

So...

So how exactly will that work?
Will we all construct terrain on our baseplates?
Will we give our baseplates to one person?

We can all just build terrain ourselves, but like I said, I'll be happy to supply as much as we need since I have no trouble at all with transporting it.

We should probably make a standardized weapons list for weapons common between factions such as Assault Rifles, SMGs, Laser Rifles and such. After that we can just agree to terms of use for specialized weapons such as Nova Swords, AT weapons such as portable Plasma Cannons and the like.

Okay you will likely see the following guns:

Hand Weapons:
Heavy Laser Rifle
Laser Rifle
Laser Pistol
Pistol
Chainsaw
OTC
Katana
Laser Sword
Power Sword
Heavy Bolter
Immortal Flechette SMG
Assault Rifle

Mounted Weapons
Light Laser Cannon
Laser Cannon
Minigun
Vulcan Cannon
Auto Cannon
Alltimate Beam Cannon
Independently Targeting Particle Beam Phalanx
Phase-Plasma Pulse Cannon


We have a lot of overlapping weapons:


Pistol
Assault Rifle
Laser Rifle
Heavy Laser Rifle
Heavy MG (Heavy Bolter?)
Man-Portable Autocannon
Man-Portable Laser Cannon

Maybe they ought to share stats?

I consider any of my weapons with the label "Cannon" as being size 3, and then Light X Cannon means size 2.
Are your man-portable cannons size 3 or 2? If they are size 2 we could say for sake of simplicity that the prefixes 'Light' and 'Man-Portable' mean the same thing.

If you're going to be using MkI+ type missiles and explosives you might want to post the stats for them up here.

A couple of notes:

My LMG's are any MGs that ca nbe fired without full set up like a heavy bolter. Heavy MGs in my forces are somewhat autocannons that require a two man crew or a mount. I may change this though.

I have begun using a new CC weapon system:

Hand weapons: hatchets, pipes, small maces, knives.
Heavy Weapons: longswords, axes, big maces
Polearms: Duh.
Power Weapons: weapons like Chainsaws, OTCs, Beam Sabers and Nova Swords.

I like the idea of the power weapons, because it's a little weird that a chainsaw does the same amount of damage as an axe or something.

Here are some weapons you'll be seeing from the civilians:

Pistols
Shotguns
Hunting rifles, crossbows
Mounted machine guns
Catapults, slingshots

Hatchets, pots & pans, knives, etc. (I like to count random objects made out of metal as hand weapons instead, it just seems fitting)
Random objects (planks of wood, brooms, etc.)
Chainsaws, buzz saws, jackhammers
Makeshift spears, halberds

Homemade bombs (these would be simple Mk1 explosives)

I also have a hero in a hardsuit, who I'm planning on giving a couple bodyguards.

Hero: polearm, shield, feet with talons
Bodyguards: I haven't built them yet, but I'm probably going to arm them with swords and shields, and maybe some sort of interesting special weapon.


The hero could also be involved in the backstory of the battle. For example, he might be on the run from the Assyrians and the Super Jews, and he's rallied some civilians to help him fight them off? I guess we can think of something.

Double post.

I went to the store today, and the owner said he'd be happy to host the battle. Nothing is official yet, but we have our location.

Yay!

I will have to think up a way to join the super Jews, Space Commies, the Apoc-rebels and Al-Kind-of. Plus a bunch of new Brittanian SAS commandos...

Just give them a common objective. I built a nuclear missile yesterday, maybe they could be trying to get to it before the Assyrians do?

So do we have a set date for this yet? Also I made some new turret systems for a new arms manufacturer I'm working on if you want to use any. Like, A LOT of turrets.
