Me close to 1000 posts?  I hadn't noticed... Is that good or are their Semai infiltrators on their way?

The problem of the Purple Shark is that you pay a fully second model; the Gunner / Commander / Forward Observer.
But this second model does give you only a slight benenefit. You cannot use it full but you pay the full price.
(maybe exept the Commander, old discussion again).
The Great Grey is much more cost effective and thats what is important in UWZ,
except the slight benefit is very very usefull for a scenario goal.

OK. I just like the color purple on the model then.

You have a good point above - same main gun one less guy to worry about = great grey.
Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.

hmm, the possibility to drop a lone forward observer on a hard to reach location actually just sounded rather nice when I was thinking about it. Since they don't target models but the ground they could avoid LOS and use their own for devilish purposes.

Now your thinking with your dipstick Jimmy.

I don't play with cost effectiveness in mind - I've never been a number cruncher when it comes to gaming.  More of a flavor savior.

Oh...you hadn't heard of the initiation into the "Guys with Entirely Too Much Time on Their Hands" club?  Archer, enlighten him!


Make it a good one!  ;D

If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

Unless in a tourney, I agree, D.

Wish I had too much time on my hands - I usually squeeze these posts in between umpteen things I'm doin'!
