Greetings all

The LBB's give you a relatively minor, yet complete list of all gear and weapons you need to run CT, but being an "item-monger" I like huge catalogs full of stuff, even thought I may not need it...ever!

I just ran across T4's "Emperor's Arsenal" and...<sigh!>...I forgot the name of the other one, but it's the overall "equipment guide" for T4. Looking at the descriptions, it seems built on (or for) CT playability. Am I right? Can all these weapons/items be used in CT without any alteration?

I use Central Supply Catalogue and Emperor's Arsenal for my games - in fact I've two copies of each plus the pdfs because they are so useful to me.

The CSC stuff requires almost no modification, but the weapons in EA require a bit of interpretation - unless you use the T4 "armour as damage reduction" instead of the CT armour matrix.

I personally use EA as is, and use a modified hybrid of T4/T20 to resolve armour and damage.
