  1. Promoting runewars

    I'm not interested enough to work heavily to promote, as most mass battle rank & file players in California are into 15mm (which I pefer) with certain areas heavy into Kings of War. I just enjoy it with my buddy. I'll never have a fully painted army for this system (we play like once every month or two) let alone two painted demo forces. Cheers to all who are working hard, however. Games with a vast amount of troops are very, very hard to promote. People love trying it, hesitant to buy it.
  2. I'd love that on my table. Slopped sides help, and it seems a proper height. Cheers to the efforts!
  3. What has everyone pre-ordered

    My bud and I each ordered a starter set. We'll see how it goes as well. I'm wary of scale issues with terrain, i.e. actually finding buildings that don't look goofy. If he digs it and we actually play, I'll invest further. Surprisingly, with a slew of games present in my community, not many in the scene seem interested in starting up another mass battle squad based system. So much work and we really want these painted on the table. We may get some recruits that are leaving the other big companies in the dust, however.
  4. Oh I meant terrain in general in comparison to the tall infantry @ghostofaman.
  5. we are just thinking of the FFG Airspeeder as being a bit elevated above the field, and thus a smidge small. That may not even be accurate. I'm concerned about finding proper terrain with these hugely tall bases.
  6. Rebels 800 point list

    And scenarios add greatly to the factor of success. This is very close to what I am envisioning for my first full point game. Nicely done.
  7. The 2 cores or the expansions debate after a peak

    One core for my friend and I each, to see if we like it a lot and how much we actually play. Then we will expand from there, possibly with another core + unit boxes, but probably just unit categories that we agree on for our larger matches. He's playing Imperial, i'm playing rebel -- but we are borrowing, not trading, our starter set figures.
  8. All the expansions (AT-ST and more)

    I agree. It is rules and supplements where PP and GW get your wallet the most. A Snowspeeder with models, upgrades and rules in the box at $40 with a typical discount is not bad at all from my experience. And it appears a core set for Rebels, with an added snowspeeder, walker and one or two troop boxes = enough points for a full game. A standard game from other systems requires far more investment.
  9. Location

    It's unfortunate. Has been a rough year for most people I know, reduced game time means other favored systems overshadowed this one. Hope you get in some matches.
  10. Happy L5R Release Day!

    wandered into the release party on an unrelated matter, and watched 42 Core Sets sold in one hour. Pretty wild. I'm sure I'll get sucked in shortly lol.
  11. Rallying the troops! Where is everyone from?

    Cheers from Central California. 2 players thus far.
  12. If you liked Dust Warfare.....

    The concept of suppression, similar also to what AT-43 incorporated, makes for a healthy game. I see other aspects of Dust Warfare here too, which pleases me. I'm not fond of troops running to the deployment edge, but it will be fun to gun down retreating units as well as what it offers in preventing active squad maneuvering. Better a design than if demoralized models were removed, for this game IMO. Glad some seasoned mini gamers are appreciating the fine work with Legion thus far.
  13. Blue spoiler article!

    Shoto weapon with Qui-Gon chucking shield damage is going to be rad.
  14. I Kinda Would Like Some Ewoks

    We interviewed a young adult years ago at a job who didn't know what ewoks were. We passed. I would love to paint ewoks, jawas and sand men. Here's to hoping for legion with a long, healthy table life.
  15. Who is Buying This? Who is sticking with IA?

    I've no interest in dungeon crawl style or their skirmish option. I'm getting the Legion starter at least.
