Damn. Why didn't i play safe with my BTS-retinue and engage the nearest retinue??!! I got greedy and went for a big gamble. It backfired big time and i lost the game because of it.

Flamers at 1 3+ atatck feels way more ok, not crazy amount of dice beiong rolled in each engagment. I think this change is a great one and a no-brainer.
Hellblades at 30cm range helped me to hit stuff withut being hit by ground AA. But then they died quickly from thunderbolts so I didn't get to try them out more.

Predator destuctors getting 2 shots on their autocannon was really scary when facing Argols list. He had a few and their 4 shots each put some hurt on my traitor marines. I really like the change though because now predator destructors really feels like a unit thats woth to take! A real Inf killer AND a FF3+ value makes it a good choice.

Hopefully Argol will give his thoughts too.

Hey that's a pretty boss map. Mind shooting me a vsav on some of these maps you're making so I can add them to the Vassal pre-made maps archive? It'd be a great resource

Really? I must have forgotten it. TBF, Apoc does most of the work on the premade maps and I do the fiddly bits with the module/module extensions :)

oh yeah because we keep a set of premade ones around. It really helps people out I feel. let's be honest, the hardest part of EA Vassal is making interesting maps (we'll.. after the whole "Vassal doesn't follow the underlying OS gestures" but I digress :D )

Anything neat you make, sling it our way! AWESOME! It's as easy as simply using the SAVE GAME and sending the vsav file. (that's actually how Apoc and I make them, new empty game and set up terrain then save)
