I think he spells words phonetically and confuses the sounds of vowels sometimes.

I also have a suspicion that half the people who post like that are under 10 years old or have no respect for the well-being of their fellow being.

I like the new chapter and all and the little changes in the rules but if I may ask why is the range for long ranged weapons reduced to 10", at first it was 12". I would like to get an awnser to this please.

I still don't like the fact that a horse cost about as much as a fully equippded minifig, generally doubling it's cost. Oh well, can't say no to a skeleton calvary charge.

Well hey, a minifig on a horse is about twice as good as one not on a horse, so...

The only reason I can think of is that 12" is too effective, because the average battlefield is not very large. I personally use somewhere between 8" and 10", because I like to promote the use of hand weapons.

And charge the bastards isn't enough promotion for hand weapons?

My Space knight with dual guns kills one guy a turn, my Space knight with large hammer slaughters one guy a turn!

Anyway, the easy way around that is to use cheap transports with guns, all the shooting any army needs comes from vehicles.

NECRO

But as it is now given new life, I am going to say that I sometimes pay for weapon upgrades depending on combat situations. I mostly use 10", but some infantry weapons I use can be up to 48" range.

i usually just use standard weapon ranges, or since my battlefields tend to have tall buildings, use the strategic advatantage of height to get more range, for infantry.

Not really. 12" is something like 40 studs. Most battlefields are larger than that.

i for my own rules ro snipers the get a 1d12" boost to range, as they get a feel for whats happening down range, because wind varies from time to time
