The Gaunt's Ghosts Warhammer 40k by Dan Abnett is superb. Very cleverly written, has squad feel to it and plenty of different weapons in use. It has a good pace in its melee and non-melee sequences. Start from the beginning as it makes more sense. You love the characters straight away.

That Galaxy's Edge looks fascinating BTW... thanks for the heads up.

Hi Legion,

I love it how it is. Nothing should change. I like to feel I have achieved something. I used to be a Guild Mistress in Hellgate London and there was a serious use of a script in that game which made players very powerful at mid-game. It ruined the game for hoest players and it made it pointless for cheaters. The clue of these new players was always the same - they asked 'how can I level fast/make lots of $' and 99% started to use the cheat code.

I was a Guild Mistress in Skyforge and you can't cheat in that game so people came and went.

I have the library so I can't wait for the research possibilities!

Yes, I am going to change that and update the version too.

another issue is that I have a Blaster projector and bombs but cannot research them or equip soldiers. Maybe I have not got a piece of research yet that leads me to the Blaster.

I am still 2 versions behind but is the Merc commando robbery producing Muton corpses a bug?

Best Regards,


P.S TY for the tips on the Tower quest :]

Ivan and Nalca; genius ideas! I guess a hover suit or two is useful here...

Best regards,

was not thinking it was a bug that she was a Noblewoman (I'd expect a mage to be from the upper class) just happy it gave me research and a second gave me 200k :D

However, I have not completed the quest yet as there seems to be one enemy left - I don't think I am spoofing the quest by stuning her as I killed her too and it did not end. Plus, I have got to the escape ship on the tower and it is indestructible.

Not sure what to do.

Oh, and is a song that I researched a spoof on 'In the navy' ??? Very funny!

Best wishes,


Only downside to the Projector strategy is the smoke-cloud that builds up. You can also destroy the floor tiles underneath and above yourself. This can cause more problems aside from the limited armor values but the sense 3 is very useful to cheat through walls unless you play gold-codex and just fairy-suit the entire mansion into submission.

Ethereal, I have no idea what this means but it sounds wonderful! Reminds me of a time when I was so far ahead in Hellgate London and Skyforge that we used a beautiful language that even became guild-specific :]

I want a fairy suit...  oh I have already used the Grey Codex...hmm.

And did I hear correctly, there is a tanK?!?
Panzer macht Spass!

Best wishes,

Hi Piratez!

I don't know if this is a bug more a way the game works:

I started extraction on a treasure chest but added zero engineers I then stopped production. I went  back to main page returned to  manufacture and the treasure chest had disappeared along with any possible extract.

I managed to stun a Mage and drag her back to base - she turned into a Noblewoman :D

Beste wuensche,


Thank you for both your tactics; I am going to test maid more; I guess you clear the mansions so do not need the Thief trappings with the extra backpack space. Greattuna what did you mean by non-appropriate? Ivan, I used a seductress and she worked against low level creeps - I guess I need to examine which is my best gal to be one and not just randomly hand out costumes though.

Best regards,


Yes, Ransom is often more profitable than Robbery.    There are some exceptions however.

Robbery gives you access to whatever special resources the enemy might yield, (Aqua Plastics, Kevlar Armor, Power Armor Parts, Rare Earth Elements, etc.)   Beyond that, there is the opportunity to take the credits from the Robbery and multiply them in the Mint.  This can bring in significantly more than the simple Ransom price.

Finally, the best use of most prisoners is Slaves!  Slaves save you precious building tiles on your base by giving you negative space.  Beyond that, they also pay their own way, in that you get money from them every month!  In a late campaign, its not out of the question to be bringing in hundreds of thousands to millions, per month, from the slaves.


So, once I get slavery, I usually just Ransom off most captives that can't be slaved, but use Robbery only on Priests (Force Circuitry) and Marsec Bodyguards (Power Armor Parts) and specials like them.

Thank you Ivan!  I had not gone down the Slavery route when it was so obvious :D

I don't know about a mint yet but will watch out. TY for these 'soft' spoilers - more like a debate really and I am desperate for $$$$!

Here is a thing, the mansion missions are difficult but I don't see the point of wench/maid when I can get more with thief trappings and maybe 1 or 2 nurses. Not a criticism of balance, I just don't know how to use the first two I guess.



a query:

It seems to be more worthwhile to just sell prisoners than rob them. After a certain amount of research, for example GOs, they stop telling
 you anything but give 2x the $ to sell them.

Am I a missing something?

Best regards,
