Not exactly. If you want to count all the utility stuff (canteen, tin cup, etc), then today's soldiers are carrying well over 100 lbs. The 75 lbs includes just the tactical gear used for running mis ...

In "reality" you don't have such minor distinctions between troop types in terms of record qualifications.

True but in reality all soldiers have always fought on the same planet too. ...

I think, regarding the sand and snow troops, there is something to be said for the ones onscreen being better than average. Those are ones Darth Vader is using directly for very high importance missio ...

This whole thread is making me remember my ambition to create an army of Annointed People (old D&D lizardmen minis) and come up scenarios for them.

Not Strength 2D from the RPG mechanics. I am referencing STR 2 from the miniatures game, which bears serious mechanical similarity to how shooting and damage works (and/or worked) in 40k and is a much ...

I'm not sure how old you are, but I'm from the original generation of Star Wars fans. Back in our day, there were no home video versions (at least that everyday Americans had access to). You saw a ...
