So for my upcoming Only War game, group decided they wanted to be a recon group similar to MACV-SOG.
One player is obsessing pretty hard over WWII US Infantry themed armor.
I get to play a Storm Trooper. I want to rock this very hard.
Please give me your suggestions for how to make my fellow players squeal with joy. I currently plan to just use my hotshot lasgun or laslance as the case may be.
All canon advice considered.

play it like a member of rainbow 6.

>breach flash and clear
>tango down

>> No.24601123

I can do that, little disappointed though, I thought you guys would be like 'vox your laslance'
you guys are pretty cool

I'll keep the urban breach ideas, but no idea of the terrain we'll be fighting on at the moment.

>> No.24601179

Be as OPERATOR as you can. Stay frosty, use smoke to attack that tank.

Always be Oscar Mike.

>> No.24601223

Did somebody say "recon"?
>Fucking dress blues commercial man. That got so many fucking guys. Now look at us: Trombley hasn't killed anybody, I'm half a world away from good paradise world pussy, and Colbert is out here rolling around fuckbutt Gereon, hunting for heretics in a MOPP suit that smells like four days of piss and ball sweat.

You better have Sergeant Major Sixtus in your game.

Is it wrong to force everyone to play as the same gender? I just think it's stupid that apparently all regiments are mixed regiments in FFGland.

You mean Lord Commissar?

>Is it wrong to force everyone to play as the same gender?

Short answer: no.
Long answer: so long as there's a good reason and you're not causing serious asspain amongst your players. If your players are so immature that the mere inclusion of a female causes immediate I'M GONNA SEDUCE EVERYTHING WITH A PENIS AND WIN BY FUCKING syndrome, it might be time to look elsewhere for players.

>> No.24601330

It's not because they're incapable of playing it. It's that everywhere that isn't FFG it's established that regiments of IG are generally all one gender, and mixed regiments are rare.

>> No.24601393

Does the difference between a male/female/mixed regiment make a difference for the story you are trying to tell ?

If it does, force a single gender on your players. If not, the decision is between you and your players.

I wonder if that's FFG overreacting to all the stupid shit people said to try and justify female space marines as a canon possibility in Deathwatch.

>I wonder if that's FFG overreacting to all the stupid shit people said to try and justify female space marines as a canon possibility in Deathwatch.
what we did was let our female player play a sister of battle.

we had to max her out to get her on par with the space marines but we did it and had fun. which i guess is the important thing.

>> No.24601430

Not really, I just like to stick to established canon because FFG tends to go full retard. I also had to homebrew my own rules for how the Genestealer's Kiss works because they turned it into fucking xenomorph-style reproduction.

>> No.24601441


>> No.24601448

Which is funny, because a good chunk of BL novels about the IG feature mixed-gender regiments. The Valhallans in Ciaphus Cain and Gaunts Ghosts (after Verunhive), probably the two most characterized regiments, are both mixed-gender. Sure all the faceless jackasses you see on the tabletop and in the codex fluff are from mono-gender regiments, but I find that people who play the RPGs are more familiar with BL fluff than tabletop fluff.

>> No.24601460

...Did you actually read Ciaphas Cain?
Including the bit where it is mentioned that female regiments are rare, mixed regiments are rarer, and the latter mostly come about from two regiments being folded into one?

>> No.24601470


>> No.24601472

Since when does "mixed regiments are rare" mean "mixed regiments aren't canon" ?

Since when does "mixed regiments exist" mean "all regiments are mixed"?

Given Tau have actually useful disposable missile launchers (seeker missiles), not-Predator Drones, target painters, flashbangs, and so on I've got this nagging feeling a Fire Caste Only War conversion could be great fun.

It would allow you to be properly tacticlol.

I really want to request a drawing of guardsman Ramirez in the next drawthread

Indeed. Though being a Drop Infantry or Light Infantry unit and taking suitably tacticool gear like lascarbines and photon flash grenades also allows for a pretty high degree of OPERATORness.
