Greetings,

I am very excited about the Firebase #6 Specialist Games supplement coming out. I was keen to see so many articles focused on new hobbyists as well as supporting existing players. I could go on about what I liked and didn't like, but I created this thread so we could all share our thoughts. I will say, this is everything that the Black Gobbo could have been, but wasn't.

What do you guys think?

@ Easy E: Feel free to post your yays and nays so we can feed them into the mixing pot. There is a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes, and we are alwyas looking to enhance the mag... can't say much more as I am a lowly underling and don't want to upset the boss ;)

It was actually my first read of the bulk of it, (despite it being my sort of first issue as a staffer) and I liked it. A good mix of articles, all of them taking the starting of a new game slightly differently.

Please give us feedback to help make Firebase the greatest mag that ever lived (TM)

Cheers... Monkey out.

PS: Just want to state before anyone points it out to me, yes I know Necromunda existed before issue 189 as confrontation. I have the rules in some old WDs, but for simplicities sake, I brushed over its history to get to the meat of the article...

Next time, expect lascannons!

Unfortunately there is an error in the Aeronautica Tactica- it claims that by taking bombs on a Lightning Strike, you can strafe on the way in and climb to level 3 passing by the target to make a bombing run. Only aircraft with a bomber profile may make a bombing run from level 3+!

(Still, you can drop the bombs in a level one strafing run if you miss with the forward weapons)

Beat me to it fattdex, that how i read it as well still always good to get more ideas for AI,and i like the senario but not to sure about the mine pig being manuver very hight seem to be more of a bommber than a fighter, but hay ho... can't wait to try it out

all the best

I liked the gorkamorka stuff! I love the battle wagons and the kans, tho with the clan rules im not sure how balanced they are. How much play testing do you guys do with these rules?

We actually worked out a few different variations of the Ork Mine-layer, and finally decided that this version best represented the one on the apocalypse data-sheet. It moves more like an air balloon than a bomber.

If anyone runs the mine-pig in their games, we'd love to get your feedback. We've had a lot of fun with it in our own scenarios.

my article on gm was in there so i might be bias but i really enjoyed the overall read, spec games needs a medium like this to keep it alive,mainly because spec games rely on house rules/custom things to make it interesting.


looking forward to more necromunda and inquisitor stuff :) i'd love to see some inquisitor conversion ideas.
