Default GEV-MCP in 6e

Hi everyone,

I can't find a reference to the GEV-MCP in 6th edition. I built one from a Seguro GEV-PC and some bits. If I want to use it on a hex map instead of using inches, I think it's movement would be 2/1. Is that right?

Thanks!

I can't remember if they've officially been reintroduced to the rulebook, but they are available [as counters] from a couple places. Or if you halve any "inch" measurements, that'll allow you to convert from the Minis rules.

For the counters there are multiple versions, though, depending on where you get them...some armed, others not.

From the "Strategic and Tactical Objectives" ODE Sponsored counter sheet, for example, their stats are:
ATK 1
RNG 1
DEF 1
MOV 3/2
2 AP guns

And from the 2019 Battlefields set, their stats are:
ATK N/A
RNG N/A
DEF 2
MOV 2/1

For my minis, I just made them, then decided to use whatever the counter stats were in scenario, rather than making the minis exactly look like the counters.

We were permitted by Mr Jackson himself to put GEV-MCPs on the S&TO countersheet - he even lent a hand with naming all of them too!

The main thing to remember is Battlefields is official SJG material, the S&TO is not. All the sponsor sheets are fan-created, but SJG-made (which is why they have the same quality components as the official boxed items).

Therefore, the official stats are the stats from Battlefields.

(doesn't mean you can't have fun with the other stats ;-)

Well - kind of different with the S&TO GEV-MCPs as Steve Jackson designed every aspect of them - stats, performance, naming, artwork, etc. We then agreed to put them on to our countersheet. So I could argue they are just as 'canon' as any others - unless he himself wants to decide otherwise :-)
