Hey, all. New guy here. I'm an old fan of the previous two editions of the RPG, old Warzone rules, and Doomtrooper. I haven't purchased the new rules yet, but I've been reading a lot about it and I wondered how well it would do with a straight up military campaign: soldiers in the Mars trenches fighting the Dark Legion, for example. Does the rulebook give advice for this style of play? Are the rules too crunchy to keep that kind of combat-intensive game working? Are there any elements of chargen that would make this kind of game distinctive from, say, an investigative type game?
FWIW, this was a frequent campaign mode I used in the old editions, but I often had to tweak down the rules to keep combat both moving faster and slightly less debilitating.
Any insights would be appreciated; I'm re-watching Starship Troopers Roughnecks and it's fired up my brain.
