While not commercially successful, the system is lauded for its tactical options and 'realism', as much as it can be simulated.
Its a shame to state that about the commercial success. Your company may have folded in the end, but that couldn't have been in large part due to LoS
itself... the game always sold well back then, I thought. Hell, I used to work in a couple of comic/gaming shops at the time and didn't have too much trouble moving it.
A funny story related to the American 'autofiring' tangent;
As I have mentioned elsewhere in the forum, I used to play music by Front Line Assembly to set a certain 'mood'. They have a penchant for incorporating quotes from various movies into their tunes.
One night JP was using his American [nicely painted] squads, and at a particular moment when a behemoth was about to unload fully on a few of my nightmares, one of the more infamous quotes came up, perfectly timed - it was from the movie Falling Down; "I'm an American - You're a sick *******". The next second he made his dice role and I think he ended up nicely mowing down nearly all the Nightmares he was targeting. Talk about my 'psychological warfare' strategy backfiring, LOL!
