Thanks for the batreps as well, I had a good read. And for the army lists: I need Orks as well. :D

Finally finished my Kratonian for Laser Storm mods. No air but the rest should be okay.

Psyched to see you guys creating fan lists. You all have my blessing :)

I am working on some army lists on my own as well, though they'll be a bit different:

Namely, they'll be for my own "Fringe-Space" setting.
Now if you're familiar with Clash on the Fringe or Five parsecs from home, you'll know that Fringe-space is basically a big love letter to "things Ivan think is cool" (40K, Traveller, Mass Effect, Quake 2), so it'll be plenty suitable for those of you with Epic minis.

The consequence of that is that you won't find.. say.. swooping hawks in the army list. But you'll be able to use your eldar or whatever in a manner that feels fitting.

Of course, that does not at all preclude people making fan lists directly for specific figures, quite to the contrary. More options is always cool.


The first two will be Unity (the human forces) and one alien.. still deciding between Precursors (think eldar/asari/vau/"refined elder race") or Brutes (think orks/krogan) or something else.

That's good news, Ivan! I would like to ask if there is any chance that you will integrate some rules for aircraft units later on. Since there are so many similarities between LASERSTORM and NETEPIC, it should be possible to have dogfights between Nightwings and Fighta-Bommas... If you are working on something like this, I don't have to think about this myself.

Just by the way... we also need an App for quick unit creation! ;)

Flyers was on the list but I decided to scratch them from the core rules mostly for reasons of simplicity, and because I wanted to think about them for a while.

THey'll be there eventually, no fuss.

Anyone sharp with excel or openoffice calc?

I'm looking forward to seeing new army lists Ivan. The more the merrier. I'm working on the two "Renegade Legion" lists by FASA into LaserStorm as I have boxes of their plastic tanks. Unfortunatly I'm held up for the moment by not having the original game tank stats. They're in the games room here somewhere, but I seem to never throw anything away. The search continues :- )
Sean, I sent you my condensed version of Ivan's Boot Camps to paste on the back of the charts page for a Reminder Sheet. It's also available at Wargame Vault as a Laserstorm upgrade for free. Check your 'Library' at Wargame Vault.
Thank you for the SM & Eldar army lists. IMHO, the best way to expand LS, and get more players for it, is to convert as many different 6mm Sci-Fi armies stats to LS as possible. This is one area LS is clearly ahead of Epic, and the more we can get SM vs Edenites, Orks vs Kraytonians and Eldar vs Renegade Legion, etc. games going the more these rules will get the attention they deserve. :D ;D

Calico,

Have you got the Arka and Arkalast the wrong way around?

I was looking at your lists and comparing them to the FWC versions and was struggling. Then I twigged, Pete's FWC Krays are not the same as the DRM Krays!! When I went to the DRM original source yours made more sense :{[]

...Other than the bit above ;D

I'm going to work on a Kray list whilst on holiday next week so it will be good to compare. I also want to compare to Shedman's Pax Arcadians do ensure that they are correct relative to the Pax (and Andarayadans) too.

Yes Steve, I got them reversed. I was using the DRM Stats as a base, with a EA list conversion as well. I have FWC around here somewhere, but haven't used it for conversions. Something else to find :- )
I'm looking forward to seeing your Kraytonians and others. As I said before, the more lists from different manufacturers the better for LS.

okay, the Clash on the Fringe part of the Unity army book is pretty much done.

At the moment, I am looking at the following units for the "official" army list (with the intent of adding to the list later on):

5 infantry types (infantry, banner troops - i.e. space marines, light troops, fire support and recon)
10 vehicle types (APC, IFV, Scout tank, Medium tank, assault walker, scout walker, SPG, Gun carrier, Armoured car, Tank destroyer)
1 super heavy
2 behemoths

Relatively mundane troops, since they are the generic human faction and focus on simple, straight forward tech over fancy bits. (incidentally, this also means you could press gang 6mm moderns into play just fine :) )

For those using the "task force" army building, Unity will have its own task forces with a few different options and I am looking at giving them a couple of unique task force commander options.

They'll have some grav support coming later, but i wanted to focus on the meat and potatoes first.

Fluff wise, if you aren't familiar with my other games, Unity is basically akin to a far more bureaucratic version of the Traveller Imperium, run by paper pushers instead of nobility.

WIth a bit of luck, this will be done this weekend. Need to toy with the numbers a bit, sanity check it and run the math a bunch.

Then bug-eyed aliens :)

Go git 'er.

It clocks in at just shy of 45 pages, which includes fluff, a few new characters for FiveCore, and the full army lists for LaserStorm and Clash on the Fringe.
I kept going back and forth about whether to split them up but I didn't want to end up duplicating the setting info, for people who play both systems.

Hot off the presses are a few additional Army Lists for LaserStorm. I have completed Imperial Guard and Tyranid lists.

These are first drafts and a work in progress, so if you find anything that you don't agree with or that seems out of whack, let me know and we can discuss if things should be changed.

I'd love to hear if you use these and what you think of them; good or bad.

I have also updated the Space Marine and Eldar army lists with a few minor changes. I forgot to update the Terminator's weapons to GP so I will do that in the next update.
