    So here's my army list, /tg/:

    Luigi (Fire Flower)
    6 Toad Scrappers (Mega Mushroom)
    8 Toad Snipers
    4 Pianta Medics
    6 Noki Hammerers

    I couldn't fit Mario in; I needed those Snipers, and his Leadership wasn't as useful as Luigi's Super Jump.

    Oh Luigi - You'll barely win any games with him, man. But, you'll annoy the living fuck out of your opponents.

    Scrap 2 of the medics for another Hammerer. If you're doing things right, the scrappers will be able to stay alive when under fire from ANYTHING, if you just break a block each turn.

    Man, I played this Dry Bones/Buzzy Beetle list the other day, and it was insane. The guy cornered my Bowser with the Buzzies and made mincemeat of my Koopa Troopas with those Goddamn regenerating bastards. (They should NOT come back on a 3+.) I managed to pull out a victory when Bowser got a lucky swing with his Vicious Chain Chomp and took out two Beetles, whose shells wound up downing a few Dry Bones. My opponent pulled back and I managed to capture the objective with Bowser and my remaining Paratroopas.

    Depends on the Jump Save, man. A jump save of 4+ or lower does not automatically negate POWs. I once wound up taking out a Mario who had EVERYTHING but the Jump Boots, and it was hilarious. It was all because of a lucky scatter roll with my Toad Lobber, though.

    Yea I tend to avoid the Space only units because I like being able to take out most layers for my units.

    If you're willing to spend the points use the Missile Command Silos. Sure you've got to deal with protecting the districts (unless you want to pay a ton of points). 30 shots should be all you need to wipe out any airforce and because of the splash its evil... but the silos got limited range and are stationary and helpless vs ground but if you're dealing with faggots that want to win by airstrike the silos are the way to go

    That's why Mr X and Wesker are in there.

    Tanks generally cost way too much for there to be more than one of them on the table, and it's only going to take out one of them before the other ruins the tank's shit.

    Flames on the other hand are more of a problem. My zombies have a racial weakness against flame, but assuming they survive that first hit they then count as on fire, which leads to morale modifiers for the enemy. And then of course if they don't die to the flame or a lucky headshot there's always a crimson head save a few turns later...

    Seriously, those zombies need a nerf now. But then the only other alternative troops choice is Ganados, and they lack the feel I'm looking for in my RE army.

    HQ: General Pepper w/ ROB Bodyguard and 10 Cornerian Troopers

    Troops: 2x12 Cornerian Troopers

    (All in Arwings and Wolfen respectively)
    Mercenary Star Fox Team (sans Slippy, plus Peppy Hare)
    Mercenary Star Wolf Team

    Heavy Support: Landmaster Team led by Slippy

    My team costs a fuckton because of all the hero units, and the "rival faction" mercenary rules for Star Fox and Wolf have me keep them on other sides of the board, but DAMN this group makes shit explode.

    I stuck Slippy in a landmaster to counter his horrible piloting score and keep him stationary. He's unstoppable with an enhanced shield and his mechanic ability. Only downside is that my mercs can't tell how many wounds an enemy has left, but that doesn't really matter with a successful "mind feel" check from Krystal. For Star Fox anyways, Star Wolf gets screwed on that one sometimes.

    I know a guy who plays an all-medusa head list. He just parks them all in front of a pit and waits for the other guy to try and hop over. Knocks em into the pit every fucking time, not even a cape mario can get across, most annoying list ever.

    I know a guy who plays real games with real people. He has fun. He enjoys things.

    Does your friend know how to shut the fuck up when others are playing a game?

    I realized what this reminds me of now: Mornington Crescent.

    By the way: gogo IRC guys! Although I agree that this is doomed to fail...

    I see nobody playing a game. I see people pretending to play a pretend game.

    Are the people on IRC any better for making up a game that absolutely no one will play? Their efforts will be forgotten in a few days, and the people here will still be enjoying themselves playing pretend.

    So, you would support someone actually coming up with rules for Mornington Crescent. Maybe we should get these guys on it.

    Except that goes against the entire nature of Mornington Crescent.

    I see somebody missing the fact that we're writing up the rules for an actual game in an IRC channel.
    >> Anonymous 08/02/08(Sat)23:25 No.2288933

    Yes. And I'm trying to figure out why the IRCfags are sitting around thinking that their OMGREAL game doesn't fly in the face of pretty much the whole point of these threads.

    And you are gigantic faggots for doing so.

    I don't understand what your actual problem with this whole deal is. Define it. Like, with words. Don't just try to beam your rage directly into my mind as have been doing.

    Look, what you're doing is coming up with rules for Calvinball. You're writing a rulebook for Mornington Crescent. What makes these threads fun is the making up of batshit insane rules that would never work in a sane game. Then you unholy love-children of /v/irgins and fa/tg/uys show up and pretty much decide that you want to come up with rules to pretend to run these armies. All I'm saying is that you're missing the point.
    >> Project Kurtz !cfZiGIAqOg 08/02/08(Sat)23:50 No.2289053

    Seconding >>2289010

    It's the fact that you're trying to create rules for something that wasn't designed to have rules in the first place. It ruins the idea behind it.
    >> Anonymous 08/02/08(Sat)23:54 No.2289078

    It doesn't really ruin the idea since no one is going to pay attention to their rules anyway. Let them have their anal-retentive fun and then everyone can go back to the game.
