standard template construction, it use to be every were. all building were made by it. it's what allowed man to colonize the galaxy.
"The classic example is the standardised habitation unit, that was self-contained and self-sufficient, and could be built on virtually any world regardless of local conditions to keep humans within a standard Terran environment."
what dose an STC building look like? what do you think?
PS. not the ST constructor it's self.

i have been going through the old RT book and missing the old games with plot. figured i could easily convert a few old plot points to work with the new rules. thought i might share a few ideas with you all. people should try them out and tell me what you think. maybe i'll make it a regular thing.( Read moreCollapse )
ug it has been awhile. the holiday season took me out fairly well this year. plus it doesn't help that many of the places i gamed have all closed. time i start looking for new shops to game at.
i got some new marines over the holidays. the new scouts and the new terminators. i have to say the new scouts pissed me off. they are form fitted so there is next to no ability to pose them any way i want. if i wanted static minis i would have gotten metal ones. there is three reason to make minis in plastic, 1:it's cheaper 2: more flexibility with the poses and 3: better detail to go with the flexibility. the scouts failed at all three. detail is no better them the metal ones. cost in no cheaper either. and they have modeled them with next to no flexibility. WTF! needles to say i'm a bit disappointed.
on the other hand the terminators we excellent. loved them. a little big but hey they're all getting bigger now a days. i'll see about getting some picks up soon.

The storm roared out side of the temporary shelter as Vet Sargent Gaius Polished his armor. It was only three months ago that he first set foot on this desolate little moon but it felt like a life time. Back then he was just Trooper Gaius, funny how things change. Lightly brushing a hand over a purity seal. It was the first assault on the Wailing hills that he got it. Picking up his former Sargent's chainsword and leading what remained of his squad up hill 214. Even today he still caries that weapon. And it has served him well in this campaign, This long hard campaign. Glancing at his Battle honors he remember each as clearly as the day it happened. 1st, 2nd and 3rd assaults on the Wailing hills, 2nd Battle of the Pipeline, Ambush at Refinery 12, the Salt flats of Carpeli, the endless battle of Bloody canyon and finally the most resent, the Assault of Filling station Alpha. They had been so close to taking it. The traitorous scum knew the storms were coming, knew they would pin down any one in the open. that was why they fought so hard. one could tell they were nearly broken. just one more push would have had them, but this damned storm hit. well once it passes we shall be ready. there will be no place for them to hide. we shall be their judgement.
well after mine and myles battle yesterday i can say this campaign is over. yes there is still two battles to be fought but no matter what there outcome the VPs will stay the same.
Chaos won a major victory in the north and held off the Marines just long enough. they used up every last bit of their reserves, even pulling out strange alien technology to do so. if it wasn't for the storms it is likely the Marine could have just walked into Filling station Alpha.
down to the south the marines did a stunning job defending Filling station Beta. horrible luck fell upon the forces of chaos. they even lost a majority of their terminators when they telaported into a wall.
so as it stands the campaign is a draw by one point. very well played. i hope you all had a good time.
soooo... now we come to the part were i ask you what you all thought. i have already thought of a few changes my self, but pleas tell me of any thing you would like to see different.

Chaos has moved. playing a double time card them selves Cb has taken back 7vp. this leaves the game just with in the 5 point draw spread. it really come down to these last few battles. if either side can win a battle and push there opponent out of the refineries, they can win it. just to make it clear for every one. just because an army goes to 0ELs because of a battle dose not mean you automatically take there location. you have to win a battle to take a location. http://www.geocities.com/smegoff_buldric/moon24.html
looks like every one get one last battle. lets make it a big one.
2000pts Cleans Mission remember there is Silica Dust Storms in play.
|Wednesday, October 17th, 2007|
a major victory for the marines! ARMY m1 has broken through and scattered the chaos detachment C2. opening a hole in the chaos line. this could not come at a better time. for the moon will soon be going into it's winter cycle, during which the weather get so bad that movement on the planets surface become impossible. all ground operations will have to stop at that time.
at the other fronts the fighting continues. both side fighting on to exhaustion with little or no gain for either side.
will the victory in the north reinvigorate the marines? will they take the initiative ?
End turn 7 begin turn 8 (last turn)this is the last turn of the game. http://www.geocities.com/smegoff_buldric/moon24.htmlVPs

Moon 24 end turn 6
The last few weeks of fighting have been bloody and telling. dissension amongst the troops of rebel marines has seen a change in leadership. as one of the warlords was brutally cut down and replaced by a new up and coming lieutenant.
heavy fighting continues near the northern refinery but is still locked in a stalemate. tho things are starting to look grim as both sides are running low on supplies. the next attack might be the telling one.
near by the Marines of army group M1 successfully fought off a chaos attack. sending the rebel forces back with heavy losses. tho even with this success things are not guarantied as all across the moon supplies are being stretched to there limit.
it looks like the marines has switched place with the hordes of chaos. lets see if they can make good there new position. http://www.geocities.com/smegoff_buldric/moon24.htmlVPs

chaos retains the initiative.Random Event:Marines:

VPs are currently at Marines 23 Chaos 37
Initiative: is back to chaos.
Random Event: Marines pull, Planetary Conjunction again. (heh, what are the odds)
Planetary Conjunction: the moon has moved into the planets shadow. all battles use night fight rules.
Chaos get a card they can hold on to. i will email it to them.
so chaos i need your move ASAP.

|Thursday, September 6th, 2007|

Initiative: swings to the Marines
Random Event: ohh one of my favorites.
Planetary Conjunction: the moon has moved into the planets shadow. all battles use night fight rules.
marines get a card they can hold on to. i will email it to them.
one, take time for the week end. no need to hurry. every one enjoy the holiday.
two, what is your take on the campaign so far. are you having fun? i can see a few things that i can change. do you guys have any thoughts?
|Saturday, September 1st, 2007|
wow 4 years
it's hard to believe i've kept this going for four years. i do have to say this last year has been the hardest. so few game it hurts. i need to kick myles a bit and get him going again. happy b-day paradise_sector
|Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007|
ok all moves have happened.
all battles should be 2000pt Gamma Secure and Control Mission with three Loot counters, but do not score points. the only thing that matters is capturing the Loot counters. whom ever holds the most wins. if you wipe out your opponent but he still has one loot and you have none he wins. this time it's not about killing it's about taking the objectives.
chaos also plays it's other Event card on Cb,
Extra Defences: pick one unit at any time. It will get 1d6+2 pieces of
Razor Wire or Tank Traps in it's next battle.
all games with Cb and M2 Chaos gets 1d6+2 pieces of
Razor Wire or Tank Traps.
|Tuesday, August 21st, 2007|

1.. chaos used a reinforcements card on Cb.
2.. Cb moved one space West then one north to claim the 5 point city.
3.. C2 moved one space South then attacks M1
4.. Ca attacks Ma.
5.. C1 bounces out to claim the sector to the North then moves back to keep the Wailing Hills.
