New Scenario: RTS

You can find this new Ogre scenario at the link above. Please play it and comment - on game balance, clarity of instructions, or whatever else you think of - here in this thread.

If "each Army" can only build an armor unit a turn then what is the point of building multiple factories?

Agreed. If it's not a typo [each factory instead of each army], maybe set it to be 6VP [so that they can't pop your initial tank and call it a day] + [X] VP per factory you own?

May a factory repair an Ogre and produce a new unit on the same turn?

I'm checking on this. I think it is one 6 VP unit per factory per turn.

Obviously, as written it matters with optional rule 3.6, but I'll get back to everyone re: the base scenario.

{Edit}

Confirmed. Each player can produce one 6 VP equivalent per factory, per turn

Ooo, looks like the sort of grind-fest that could last all weekend! I like the concept of MHWZs turning into HWZs as a once-a-game mechanic, and may steal that for later consideration.

Strategic Level OGRE here we come! Awesome.

Is this Scenario only to use the original OGRE Scenario rules...that is no stacking and only ramming?

From OGRE TIMELINE [OGRE MINIATURES Page 51]:

"2079
Paneuropean political operatives and special-ops forces succeed where direct invasion had failed; the United Kingdom falls. Sheffield Ogre plant captured largely intact. New British government immediately integrated into Paneuropean structure. Loyalist British forces retreat to Combine and Australia.
Paneurope signs secret treaties and establishes covert bases and factory centers in Brazil and Argentina."


Since Templates were stolen from Sheffield in the OGRE Timeline, is there any optional possibility for capturing enemy Factories and using them somehow?
3.22 Factory Destruction states no, but it may be interesting to allow something like that if it's simple enough and compliments the game.

Maybe having the option to take "espionage" units instead of normal ones at the start?
