idea: attacking through carryable dome shaped cardboard & ECMs effect radii to block LOS & some Sensors

Post by eLMsm »

when playing detection “double blind” games against the Clans, that is another idea. Flamers and missiles and infernos would burn cardboard, though, as can other shots. Maybe a +3 to-hit Modifier for shooting through cardboard would be appropriate.
When do I “retreat” ? Only when I want to re+treat myself to eating cookies here in VT of USA. Here in VT, outside temperatures can get very cold; I suppose my miniatures won’t get overheated, ha ha.

cardboard?

cardboard is invisible to radar and magnetic resonance sensors: the primary means for targeting.

even for the naked human eye, cardboard is Concealment, not Cover.
