    Be respectful of his passing. Drop by this thread, if you want to say something nice.

    I'd like to run a test battle, with just this. At the moment, limited equipment, and the only unit type is basic infantry.

    You'll have... call it, 1000 money (-M-) to build your combat squads with, for a simple and direct 1v1 combat. I don't feel up to trying to handle more than two commanders at a time just yet. I'll roll for the variations in individual infantry, since those are already going to be random.

    Any takers?

    Okay, that's two, great.

    If other people are interested, make a note, I might holler at you later for something.

    Right now you say you want to play.

    In an actual test play, you buy units, equipment, and modifications out of 1000 units of money, and each commander takes turn trying to kill all of the other's units.

    That's how it works right now, anyway. As I said, testing grounds.

    Speaking of snipers...

    [img width=600 height=463]http://s25.postimg.org/sdmoz1467/Scan10073.png[/img]

    I'm being a bit slow about actually coming to decisions on the hard mechanics, but I'm thinking a big factor is going to be tiered weaponry of some kind. From a comparatively cheap rifle with iron-sights, down to the monster at the bottom.

    There's also going to be mucking about with your standard drone units, and rules for equipment with various queens... lots of things need adjustment.

    Stuff will happen as time passes.

    Meet the Discount Drones CDX-6 models, showing off a not-so modest schoolgirl secretary outfit, and a halloween sort of costume.

    Mechanics are still up in the air, but in general:

    Aesthetic customization: Extremely High
    Functional customization: Very Low
    Expense: Very Low
    Initial combat utility: Low
