Game Questions / Re: Net rules need to be clarified
« Last post by Buzzu on October 24, 2020, 01:55:01 PM »
Having no answer after more than a month, we (the Italian club) decided to vote. The winning option is number 3, because it seemed the most balanced one between effectiveness of the tool as a disturb and beeing fair enough to be solved for the price of the unit who use it.
Just to let you know, in case anyone else was thinking about it.
Cheers.

You can see on the official Excelsior blister picture.
I'll send you picture in private because this forum can't let to upload any files.
I found some also catalogs with Target & Excelsior codes (pdf).

Some miniatures are known as prototypes, never officially released by Excelsior, but scupted by Jarek, he collaborated in the past with Excelsior and maybe even for Target.
These figures are marked "RMM 08", so created near 2008:

- Storm Trenchers (sgt, hmg, flame thrower)
- ISC Agents (regular & hmg specialist)
- Blood Beret Sniper
- Golden Lion Demo specialist
- Mishima Rocket Team (Mortar)
- 19th Silent
- Machinator MK II hmg specialist

Jarek scupted then also Pantera Cavalry pose, I have them too.


Here some reference

Jarek's Panthera Cavalry:

If anyone has some of these poses, please write me in private.
I can exchange with some rare stuff by Target, Excelsior and even RPG metal miniatures.

EXE-40509 Lutheran Euthanasi 2005

Into never officially released list are missing:
  • Cybertronic 19th Silent
  • Imperial ISC Agents (Gendarmery)
  • Mishima Ashigaru Typhoon Rocket Team (Mortar)

IIRC to represent Doomtroopers in UWZ, it was used the RPG miniatures couple for every Megacorporation.

Thanks for that code for the Euthanasi, where did you find that?

About the other three unreleased minis, do you mean that these were sculpted (which I've never seen) but never cast and released? Or that they only had artwork/concept sketches done (which I have seen)?

Also I've added the big beasts from Dark Eden to the list, since these were sculpted and featured in Chronicles from the Warzone during 1997, but never given a code and never released.

Game Questions / Net rules need to be clarified
« Last post by Buzzu on September 20, 2020, 12:13:02 AM »
Hy guys.
After another exciting meeting of the Chronopia Italian Club (which is growing!) we found ourselves stuck in a debate about how the net weapon really works. Since the Swamp Goblins are my army at the moment, it's really important for me to clarify which of the following interpretations is the correct one.

Premise: the net is a throwing weapon. Your mini has to throw it at the correct range, see if it hits the target using it's RC stat, and the target has to make an armor roll against a damage of 10. If it succeeds nothing happens, if it fails he's trapped in the net. OK, up to this moment, everything is clear. The dispute begun immediately after.

According to the rules, the trapped model is CONSIDERED prone, and it has to make a break test against a strength of the net of 10.

This can be read in two different ways, the first one making the net a nice but weak disturb, the second one making it maybe way too powerful.

Version 1) the model has to spend actions attempting to escape from the net rolling a die and adding it's strength until it reaches a total of 10 (very easy), like it happens with the freeze spell of the elves. Until netted, he has the same malus of a prone model (+4 to Def) but once free, he can act as normal. This makes the net a simple disturb that makes you use an action to escape. Very strong models can escape very easily.

Version 2) the netted model has to make a break away test from the net: this means rolling a die and adding the model's strength and make a better result than your opponent rolling a die and adding the net's strength. This is really difficult and requires in many cases more turns. Once free, since the model is prone, it has to spend another action to stand up. This makes the net a very strong device. Big models have more chances of breaking free having a bonus and flying models can break free by only using an action, but an average model with only two actions will be stuck for a full game turn even if lucky enough to escape with it's first roll.

Version 3) a mix. You only have to reach a value of 10 or more to be free but another action to stand up since you are still prone once free.

Which is the correct one?

Let's state it once and for all.
Thanks.

Here are links to the original sculpts for the Mutant Chronicles RPOG miniatures.

Looks like RPE doesnt have the diorama anymore.

Ral Partha Europe was selling the diorama.

I have a bunch of the old Mutant Chronicles RPG miniatures.  Perhaps they reused some of the old sculpts from the doomtrooper packs.
Oh, do you mean that they created the diorama? Or resold it later, after Target's reconstruction?

In Fictional Reality #10 a recast of a Pretorian Stalker was featured, so I guess maybe they had access to the at least some of the molds for the old RPG line sculpted in 92-94?

The seller has a Polish name and looks like the same guy who did Chronopia New Age.  Is this you, Delthos?
