    I realize they were just trying to make this guy more useful by cheapening mines, but I think they made it worse.

    Almost every match with mines allowed has the map covered with so many that you can't cross it even with mine detection. This results in:
    No Tanks
    No Troops
    Artillery Only

    People will occasionally fire rockets at the ground trying to clear a path, but that rarely works because moving so slow turns you into an easy target.

    You can upgrade the binoculars guy to thermal vision to spot mines.

    This. Seriously.
    If you want to get some extra mileage out of it take the flak cannon upgrade and use it as a mobile AA turret. surprisingly enough nobody does this, and it will usually catch your opponent off guard when he suddenly loses one of his 120 point planes to a mine clearing workhorse.

    Still won't be able to safely cross them as they are so close together. Regular mines aren't the problem, it's the focused charged anti-tank mines that don't set off other mines when they explode.

    Compose your army entirely of mortars. Fucker wants to spam mines? I'll carpet bomb the area. If he's really dumb, he'll clump them close together near his base, and I'll toss some 5 point infantrymen with some FOR THE EMPRAH crap, set them all off.

    Anti mine missiles are in development currently. They fire off a stage 1 carrier which explodes at a predetermined altitude and sends down about 400, 1 foot long "needles" that carpet a mine field. The needles are filled with a substance that deactivates the chemical potential of mines.

    well if you play reds, you can spare the odd ammo carrier or ten. Thats' why I was suggesting browns, not for the actual stabbing but because they have nice aerial support and they rarely lose leadership tests. Plus, snipers.

    Reds have hueg numbers etc, but as soon as their leader is down they start losing morale/leadership and scatter.

    The only way to stay reasonably competitive is to have minimum sized squads with max numbers of XO's and specialists. Some people say 5 man squads with an XO, three zookas and a mortar are cheesing. Those faggots don't know what it's like having your armor be practically unplayable.

Teal are a knockoff green army without all the cool stuff (low morale, silly weapons prone to jamming, no deep striking), Reds are FORCE IN NUBMERS HURR DURR but with a single good sniper shot you can send the whole army to hell, not to mention they have almost no heavy infrantry. brown have aerial support, ok, but they can't hit shit with their rifles, and grey have almost no artillery support. I mean, our mortars shells hit on a 6. a SIX. sure we have tanks, but they cost, like, a thousan gajillion points, that's why no one fields them EVER.

    Is it even possible to fight a tan army with a blue army? I guess it would be possible if the battlefield wasn't desert, but you'd still have to sacrifice speed on a flamethrower so you can prevent your super soldiers from getting captured.

    Dude, you're fucking annoying. GTFO.

    Know what I love? Red army with Glorious Charge + Tactical Bombardment super powers. Add a few snipers to keep the enemy down and equip most of your grunts with carbines, SMGs, shotguns and flamethrowers, and you can PWN just about anything.

    The beauty is that even if you're playing on a tight urban table, so many close-combat weapons means you can rock n' roll.

    Here's my usual list:

    5 carbine
    4 SMG
    1 Squad Automatic Weapon
    t1 body armor, frag grenades

    5 carbine
    4 SMG
    1 Squad Automatic Weapon
    t1 body armor, frag grenades

    5 SMGS
    3 shotguns
    1 flamethrower
    t1 body armor, stun grenades, frag grenades

    2 Rocket Launchers
    3 carbines

    1 light machinegun
    2 carbines

    1 sniper
    1 spotter

    1 sniper
    1 spotter

    2 light tanks
    smoke launchers, t1 targeting array.

    1 APC

    2 Tactical Bombardment
    1 Glorious Charge

    I'm not that guy, but I personally like renegade snipers paired with a spotter.

    +1 to hit, plus it forces your enemy to make a difficult choice between committing units to rooting out your sniper or using an entire damn Strike Power to kill it. And then, you're only killing a single sniper and a spotter, at most.

    If you cram them into a squad, it's much easier for your opponent to score a bunch more Victory Points by just nuking the squad with a Heavy Artillery Barrage, a Flyby Strike or a Gunship Strike.

    Take the Guerillas doctrine.

    Sure, vehicles are twice as fucking expensive, and you have to buy the Infiltration Power (at half price, of course) for each squad you want to infiltrate, but you can deploy anywhere on the map (infiltration) so long as it's at least 2 feet away from the enemy.

    There's your offensive army. Beauty of it is that most Greens either never take a doctrine or they take the War Machine doctrine, so opponents always expect you to have tons of vehicles and expensive equipment with a lot of superpowers and a (relatively) static firing line, but not too many infantry units.

    when playing reds (i usually play grey) i tend to use a smaller army (i know..) than most.

    usually i keep 2 to 5 snipers, alone, without spotters or radio contact, using the Private Mercy rule (they attack only from caporal upwards).

    Then i get some squad (1 to 5) of riflemen with smgs, a radio operator with a bolt action rifle and the command unit.

    for the command unit I use a Commander with a radio op (obviously), two serg. bodyguards with SMG and grenades, a Spotter caporal. the commander himself is a sniper of sort.

    To be honest, I'm more worried about Yellow. Assuming they pass their Leadership tests after the Tactical Bombardment, their bonus to Hand-to-Hand combat really sucks. Though that's why I try to keep them at least a foot away at all times.

    btw best are grey grenadiers army.

    grenade spam, followed by a quite good firing line, followed by more grenades. They can take out entrenched units easily, and them spotters can spot most stealthed units at range. True, you have to play defensively, but you can win easy if you nest out snipers using the Kommando units (basically just medium infantry with a wider movement range, really).

    Of course, there's the problem of the MINES.

A better power would be Gunship, like teal have; that stops greys from staying in buildings all the time while not giving the browns the power to rape every army.

    Nah dude. Sure, I guess green is kind of the equivalent of Space Marines...but better Think Elite Space Marines with awesome air and artillery support. Grey is the most like the Imperial Guard because they favor static gunlines, with armor being their main mode of attack.

    OK yeah. I can see that. Except they've got a more insurgent feel to them...like, they're sneaky as fuck but generally use lower-grade equipment. I guess they're more like Catachan jungle fighters. Who are also storm troopers. Who make due with whatever they've got.

    k guys, let's make some clarity here for the newfags to this game.

    GREEN are the flagship army, loosely based around the Us Army. They are a good army all over, with no exceptional skills in any field.

    GREY are based around the german forces. They have a nice line of fire, and they are expert with grenades/bazookas (next edition). they are adept in killing entrenched7fortified units

    REDS are based around russian forces. they are many, weak but strong willed. They tend to be flexible in building (you can have many squad or less, more powerful squads) but if you kille their leader they are mostly gone

    TEAL are UK special Forces-like, some sort of better Green if you want. they are faster in entrenching, have a wider movement range and if a squad starts losing units the remaining units get stronger.

    TAN are based maybe around the Afrika Korps? they are master of disguise, can deploy part of the army in enemy territory and rely mostly on ambushes and close combat. Almost no snippan here

    BLUE are.. dunno. Best sniper altogether, they go around in small forces ambushing the shit out of everything. They suffer in open field, but a blue sniper+spotter team can kill anything.

    WHITE have been discontinued for balancing issues

    METAL were a joke army of "knights", with mad charging skills.

    moreover, tan, blue and on an extempt red are "guerrilla" armies, you can field a few unit and still play good.

    green, teal and grey are "armies", you have to field a good number of them to play properly.

    maybe with next edition we'll get a black army, who knows.

    I am sick and tired of all this Masterwork Green squad bullshit in the d20 system right now. Grey army deserves better than that. much much better.I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine Grey Army in Taiwan for 1 dollar (that's about 100 pennies) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid plastic with my bayonets.
    AZN children spend no time working on a single unit and cut plastic with the same die-cut up to a million times before getting food.
    Grey scouts are thrice as sharp as green scouts and thrice as hard for that matter too. I'm pretty sure a magnifying glass could easily bisect a Green bitch wearing full plate in about 3 hours.
    Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Taiwan? That's right, it didnt exist. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the grey uniforms first because their killing power was feared and respected.
    So what am I saying? Grey men are simply the best Army that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the d20 system.
    tl;dr = Green Army sucks

    Here's what I have for a basic system:

    Infantry can move 6 inches per turn.

    Each weapon has: A points cost, Armor Piercing (AP value), Power (Pw; raw damage potential), Hit (what number the player must roll on a d6 to hit with the weapon), Attacks (number of attacks allowed per turn), and Special Rules.

    When making an attack, the player rolls a d6. If the unit hits its target, the AP value of the weapon ignores an equal amount of armor and the rest of the target's armor must be bashed through with the weapons Power.

    For example, if an infantryman with an assault rifle attacks an unarmored enemy infantry man, the attacker can target the enemy at up to 3 feet away. The attacker must roll a 4+ to hit, and gets 1 attack with an AP 2 and Pw 2. The attacker rolls a 5, hitting the unarmored infantry unit and killing it.

    The Green nation is a relatively new and ambitious country with access to many resources, including raw materials and personnel. Worldwide trade has made them a respected world power. The Greens spend more money than any other nation on their military and provide outstanding training and equipment. They maintain a professional standing army that can deploy quickly and hit hard. The Greens are jacks-of-all-trades; if there’s a problem, they’ve got at least a good solution. Their advantages lie in the ability to assume any roll and their ability to field high-tech and advanced units rather cheaply. However, their units are more expensive on average. The Greens have the War Machine doctrine; all equipment is half cost, but all infantry is double the cost.

    The Reds come from a land where war—whether it be an external force or civil war—is common. They maintain a very large standing army, and every person is temporarily drafted into the Grand Citizen Army when they reach the age of 16 for a total of 4 years. They have a large number of factories and very good production capabilities, but their equipment and training can be somewhat sub-par. Their strengths are the sheer amount of numbers of fighting units they have and their ability to give their troops a tremendous burst of morale. But, on the other hand, their forces have a low average Leadership ranking. The Reds have the Endless Tide doctrine; they can deploy an additional 1/3 points worth of units after their initial Deployment phase. But, they receive -2 to all Leadership rolls. Once per game, the player may use Glorious Charge: all units automatically pass their Leadership rolls for the remainder of the turn.

    The Blues come from a small alliance of relatively small nations. However, they manage to stay relevant on the global scale because they have forged truly excellent trade alliances with all other major nations and are brilliant traders, in general. They have many brilliant and driven individuals in their government and military, which has led to amazing military advances. But, they have few individuals in their military. As such, they rely on excellent support systems that can help make up for their lack of soldiers. The Blues’ infantry cost double points and their vehicles cost triple points, but their equipment is free and their powers are all half priced.

    Tans are comprised of a war-torn series of nations that have banded together in a rag-tag alliance for mutual protection from civil war and their harsh neighbors. Having a hopes for a region which is one day unified, the Tans will fight to the bitter end for what they believe in. They have a history of being invaded by leading world powers, and have never had the technology to match them on an equal level. So, they have developed underhanded tactics that are nonetheless innovative and quite sneaky in order to prevail. Their forces are able to buy the Infiltrate power for free, and they get +1 to all Leadership rolls, but all other Powers cost double.

    Oh shit man, I got a preview of Greys next rules update. You can actualy make pure infantry ordance squads. All grenaders, bazookas, mortars and rockets. I am going to make a bulletless army, and the explosion spam will make the mine spam we all bitch about useless, and rockets give adiquite AA (not as good as flack or dogfighters obviosly, but enouph to work with).

    And get This, if they take their Spotter HQ they get the "Spotter Coordination" doctrine. It lets a spoter forgo the acuracy bonus he provides and instead let any single shot direct fire weapon shoot as if it had the sniper targeting rule. BAZOOKAS are single shot direct fire weapons. Bazooka snipers!! yeah the acuracy is less, so a regulare sniper would probly be better, but how cool is that!

It nerfs the artillery and tank problems with army men by allowing only a couple cannons max per list and instead of tanks we get cavalry units which can actually be DAMAGED by things that aren't bazookas and other tanks.
