I've got better rules for overlords. They become war engines, 170 points, 4
wounds, 20 cm move with special rules for floaters, 45 cm range at 10 fp all
arrund, plus one heavy barrage for units in base to base contact. Cannot snap
fire at ground units, may not be snap fired at by ground units. Save, Armor 6.
Any catastrophic damage goes to "destroyed" to give opponent morale.

The CJ rules are really dumb; 1 LR will nearly always kill it. Blimps doing "pop
up" attacks is pretty silly too.

I can send the overlords rules, or all of my squat translations, to anyone who
wants them.
