Here we can discuss opinions regarding the new 2nd Edition Rules
Got the new Heros rules today with the newsletter. Please change it so that it is not red printing on a black background. Hard for me read and colorblind people (like my son) cannot read the text in the black at all.
Huzzah, Marco toddeled into the villa from poolside to talk LoS, chin-chin!
This is more related to the 1st edition rules but going through all the books with advanced rules, etc, I realized I never tried a bunch of the optional rules such as Wounds and stress time where the players have 3 minutes each turn to move their figures.
Marco, do you plan to incorporate all these rules again in a new format for 2nd edition?
Also, regarding the current unit cards for the UNE and the LOS, I imagine there will be other configurations of these for the other UNE and LOS squad types.
Marco, If we want to post any images of our gameplay, what LOS site or sites would you prefer them to be posted?
Hey Warren. I am still updating that section. Sorry for the missing info but I will have it updated within the next few days
Looking at the scenario book it mentions UPV (Unit Point Values) which I am familiar with but did not see any on the UNE or Machine cards. Also it mentions EPV and EPC but does not say what the abbreviation means. What do they mean?
Also on the Scenario Random Generator page under the Move Through header, Objective: it states in that paragraph, ...while the atta ker receives Victory Points equal.to the UPC of the figures exited...what are UPCs?
I had two players playtesting 2nd edition rules last night on the 15th. The UNE player won all three scenarios.
In the 1st edition rules, a player could have its figure throw a grenade to side arc at -1 and rear arc but at double the range. In 2nd edition, it states they can only throw grenades in their front arc. Was this just to keep it simple for grenade throwing? I would say in 2nd edition that the figure could just drop a grenade in any adjacent square, and if throwing further than one square, they have to do it from their front arc. Obviously, the UNE would not use a K Pulse beside them but other non-destructive grenades could be used to that effect.
If a forcewall is thrown around corner and a machine is covering down the corridor the forcewall landed, can the machine use the covering fire to shoot the forcewall even if the commando was not in view when it threw the forcewall grenade?
Had a great time intoducing and talking about LOS today at the games day at the RHLI hall. I introduced the game to 3 newbies and spoke with 4 or 5 other attendees who are familiar with the 1st edition and are quite excited about the re-release. I will be posting some pics of the event in this and the following posts.
Send me the signup sheet. The event will be today at the RHLI Vetran's Association (Legion Hall) at 1353 Barton St. East, Hamilton, Ontario. It starts at 2 PM today until whatever time gamers are done. I likely will not stay beyond 9 PM.
Great pics!! I'll be at the Hamilton Tabletop Gaming Society meeting tomorrow and will be demo'ing LOS there with my buddy (who is also a playtester) Harry. I will endeavour to remember to get as many pics as I can to post the best ones here.
