Interesting BatRep. Thank you.

I thought Firefight was Mantic's small, skirmish scale rules (akin to the new Shadow War: Armageddon) while Deadzone and Warpath were for larger, 40K-type engagements.

Yep.. Firefight seems to be an equivalent in terms of scale of action to 40K. Warpath is similar to Epic…
Haven't used Deadzone.. but I THINK it's a lower scale than Firefight?

Dead zone= think necromunda/Shadow war.
Warpath= think 40k 3rd+ edition at 3000pts/side.
Firefight= somewhere inbetween I think.

I've been playing Firefight for a couple of months now and I love it. Using the Command system to issue various orders gives the game a nice feel and adds a bit of uncertainty. Nothing hurts more than creeping behind that Iron Ancestor which just activated giving it a blast only to have it refresh, reactivate, turn around and give you some serious hurt.
(Yes my guys found that out the hard way).
