    @Chaplain - Originally there was going to be a deviation flip for all artillery like the allied pounders. But it made them hard to use as a standard unit type. But this is a great idea for a new unit...

    That's a cool idea. I'll have to talk it over with CMoN and see what that would mean. But I'm a huge fan of customized stuff and house rules. For cards we could just put a blank card online for...

    Yeah I think that's a great help, Chibi. We will make sure to cross check it. Getting help from players is awesome. It really helped when we released the rules early and got some good feedback.

    Very cool. The way you painted Gaston's Goggles does make it look like real glass with some green gas swirling behind it. Nice work.

    Think of the plug as a turret that is bolted on to the sturmpanzer. It's not a separate unit. So it gives the sturmpanzer a new gun to fire, it doesn't mesh with the existing main gun. And as a...

    They stick around until the enemy captures the objective. They just need to have a unit on the objective at the end of their turn. Then the flag is removed and you must take that hill back! :) We...
