  1. We use the "courtesy list" prints with reference pages at the table quite a bit, but we keep having to look elsewhere for the Sustained Fire profile. Would adding it to the weapons page of a list when weapons are capable of it be practical? Am I just missing a setting?
  2. I necro'd the thread, so it may have dated from when they were experimenting.
  3. That's more a 2,000 gallon tank. 55-gallon drums are only partial cover.
  4. The video series has expanded but does not cover all of the facades, and I have found that watching the videos is still useful to cut down the incidents of "where does THIS go?"
  5. As one example, assemble a four-way intersection with the overhang buildings on each corner and cars, dumpsters, or other objects to grant some cover in and near it. Now hold a firefight in the intersection. Unless that intersection is big enough to lay down the large teardrop template sideways you will have trouble with LOF around the corners, or even between opposite Stop signs. You can get away with it if the buildings are short, but tall and cantilevered gets messy very quickly. The same thing occurs when a lot of bridges are involved but the ground remains playable, or the bridges aren't from roof to roof, but lower on the buildings. The table *looks* amazing, but is, as one tournament organizer put it, "technically difficult" for the players.
  6. Apologies. I am referring to the potential of the individual buildings, not the specific arrangement you use.
  7. I can imagine, but my point was more to sheer playability. A table that has to be half disassembled every turn to make LOF determinations near the center is too cramped regardless of the actual building count, and extensive overhangs can escalate that.
  8. https://www.wired.com/2017/01/eerie-photos-take-chinas-neon-lit-alleyways/ The electricity bills must be staggering.
  9. A friend is also building this set of kits, and has noted that the top deck of the Feng Huang building is too narrow to actually put models on that will meet the requirements for Infinity (room for the entire base) unless you leave the little shrine/roof access building doorless and/or not attached. Moving the railing outward would help, but you have to know to do that before you start...
  10. Yeah, as the build-a-little-paint-a-little work flow model is not my ideal approach, I'm working up to the Alcabaza stuff by noodling around with the Alpha series a bit first.
  11. Mine has arrived, and I got the other LE Studio B building in a trade, so I'm in for the long haul.
  12. I'll be adding a light kit to one of mine. (Which reminds me that I need to get some velcro for the battery and replace my cheapy hot glue gun, as it seems to have vanished.)
  13. I think the snowed trees can be de-snowed with hot water, though it might take *really* hot water. Alternately just line 'em up and re-spray them green with the snow in place. Alien world and all...
  14. I picked this up last week without giving the visible instruction sheet much of a look, and noodling around with it over the weekend found that it needs that odd "rotate the last wall into place vs two other walls at the same time" step. The loose tolerances needed to make that possible make the whole building a bit loose. While I suspect the corner bits for supporting the roof in non-Objective mode might help, I'm curious if people build this kit fully (except maybe the roof/floor) or if they leave it collapsible?
  15. Yeah, I would love to use something like Bandua's platforms, but they're a bit much to cover a table with, and not quite stable enough in large numbers. I love the railings, though. Thinking out loud, a raised ring (like CNC's plain raised stuff) perhaps three feet square, with walkways at table level around the outside. The center has the tall rig itself, and the ring has tanks and buildings. Pipes everywhere, of course.
