  1. I very much like what you have done, but some of your weapon stats seem a bit "off" to me. Example: your sniper (anti-materiel) rifle is listed as a Medium anti-tank weapon, but the 30mm GL which is equipped with AT warheads seems backwards, or both should be classed as Light AT. I would also think the auto GL should have a better AP rating than a standard, single-shot UGL... which yours might... not sure. And the AT Missile Launcher should be better than AP:2/AT:2 M, by the looks of the figures.

  2. Good to see someone carrying on the Tomorrow's War torch since Ambush Alley Games seems to have really dropped being active on the various gaming forums, and have released no new products for years. Great blog post!
