Melee guys don't have to worry about getting lines of sight or height advantages, so it's pretty much always possible to end their turn in complete cover unless they're fighting (or you're fighting on the dreaded empty field: enemy to all minifigs). If ranged guys you lock into combat with try to get away, you get a free attack. They can counter-attack with their rifles, but since they're not proper weapons there's not much else they can do. Some of Natalya's guys have shields to protect em in combat, but they still can't make melee counter-attacks.

I would love to see an all melee combat team totally decimate a bunch of riflemen, or vice-versa. Just remember: there's no A in sword.

Yeah, Briktoid was pretty much designed for this, an almost entirely long-range army who will get horribly slaughtered IF a melee unit made it into their ranks.

I figured it fit with the whole "One Jedi owning an entire battalion of Droids" theme from Star Wars.

I have this idea I haven't tried yet, but I want to take an empty field by using catapults to launch field cover for the advancing infantry.

Or you can do what I'm planning, have a unit who basically IS moving cover:

You want CC Units and Moving cover? Why not Blockbots?

Eh, I'll give my Nega-block forces blockbots, Wall Droids are one of the units that come out of the Pain Train...

I'll PM Blitzen about the details, and maybe about the time. I can do any time, but I think it would be good to start at around 10 or 11. Or am I completely off?

So Blitzen says we're going to be meeting at the Eaton Centre and then walking there. I assume it's really close, I don't know much about Toronto. She also suggested 10-11, so we just need to know if Natalya is good with that time.

I will be there but I might be really tired, just a fair warning. Where at Eaton's are we meeting?

The entrance at Yonge and Dundas. On the third floor, near the entrance to Sears.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

So you haven't picked a time but you where saying between 10-11 any set time yet? And I'm in no rush I could stay all night I'm just wondering planning wise about how late it will go.
