Re: Ogre Minis Construction

One suggestion regarding Ogre treads: If you haven'e been doing so, sanding/filing both the nobs on the treads AND the bottom of the Ogre and then checking the fit helps. I found that in addition to...

Re: Ogre Playmat M3?

Well, M3 is a reality, so I upped my pledge (even if it's not necessary at this point). I had been waiting to see what it looked like in the morning, but no point in waiting any longer... :)

Re: GEV-MCP questions?

My best guestimate is taking 2 GEV-PCs and putting them side-by-side, except as a single unit (and a lot taller).

Re: Iron Mountain: We’ve Been Playing This Scenario Wrong for 35 Years

This doesn't really answer your questions, but in my experience sometimes good stories don't make for good scenarios, and vice versa. For example, Iron Mountain uses a number of special rules to...

Re: COMMAND POSTS in OGRE...

I don't think it's a lack of CP that causes issues, it's the loss of a CP that does. With no CP in the scenario, there's already some sort of decentralized command structure that can recover from...

Re: COMMAND POSTS in OGRE...

IIRC, I've seen and SSR where loss of the CP results in a temporary (somewhere between 1 and 3 turns?) penalty (though I don't remember if it was no combined fire, or -1 die roll, or what) to...

Re: Ogrezine 2 Now on Kickstarter!

Another question - you said 'book', as in singular. Does that mean that the printed version will be a combined Ogrezine Volumes 1 & 2, or will each one be available separately?

Re: Survey: Top Priorities for Ogre VG Improvement

I want to second GP's assessment of terrain destruction. The ability to rubble town hexes to make it easier to hit INF is sometimes the only way to kill them with any reasonable certainty. It also...

Re: INFANTRY in OGRE...

Nope, 2AU. The same cost as an on-board CM, as the crawler itself is the 3rd AU for a CM/crawler combo. Basically, firing a CM from a crawler costs 12VP, the same as firing an off-board CM, and...

Re: Survey: Top Priorities for Ogre VG Improvement

Thanks for the further info. I would suggest that as far as units go, LGEVs, GEV-PCs, Trucks and Hovertrucks (in approximately that order) would be the top priorities. Fencers and Dopps, while...

Re: Survey: Top Priorities for Ogre VG Improvement

I totally understand that there's not really money for development at this time, but I"m concerned that one of the things that is passively hindering the ability of the game to grow beyond a certain...

Re: Ogre Playmat M2?

I have as feeling that printing 2 versions will be cost prohibitive, as each version has its own costs. However, you made me think of a better option. The north and south sides are the ones that...

Re: How many Mark VIs & Dopps are needed?

I'll either buy 1 or 2 of each color offered, depending on the total price. I currently have 2 full sets of everything offered thus far (5 colors of sets 1 + 2, plus black Ogres + HVYs), as well as...

Re: Official Rules Update and FAQ (Draft versions 1.01 - June 21)

Oh, I totally agree. But can't you just see whoever was building the original SHVY doing a dog-and-pony show for the brass, showing that picture and saying, "It's our answer to the Mark I. We added...

Re: The "right" value for a SHVY?

Well. you probably could if you just bought an LT with each SHVY and then kept them in a back corner out of the way and didn't use them. It's not quite the same, but close enough :)

Re: The "right" value for a SHVY?

I have mixed feelings about the 1-3 column. It does make a lot of sense that a D on a 6 vs armor (or 3/1 INF, or INF in terrain, etc) should be an option for a 1-3 desperation attack. OTOH, it adds...

Re: Suggestion for Mk VI / Dopp Kickstarter

I think they both have merit - scanned counters provide a nice easy visual reference, while stat lines are more compact (and thus better suited for a card). I can see the visual version being better...

Re: The "right" value for a SHVY?

Running the current (D5) SHVY through the Cobb calculator, it should be 2.5AU (14.93VP), whereas the original D4 SHVY is right at 2AU (11.9). Which makes me wonder if the solution is to have 2...

Re: Ogre Minis Revision Issue: Mark VII

While I would certainly enjoy adding more Ogre to Munchkin, I agree with keeping Munchkin out of Ogre!

And while I totally agree with keeping the Mk VII strictly theoretical, I do enjoy at least...

Re: Homemade Overlay Sheets

Creating the XCF file would require me to use the contents of the Terrain PDF, which I can't do without SJG permission (and I'd have to make a bunch of them). As a second best for now, here's a...

Re: Ogre Minis Revision Issue: Mark VII

The closest I've come is playing Super CP with 2 Mk V's attacking vs 2 Mk IIIs and some armor defending. IIRC, the Mk Vs won handily, but partially due to some luck (good on their part, bad on the...
