  1. The ASTEROIDS! event is now live at gencon.com: https://www.gencon.com/events/165540 Thursday @ 4pm.
  2. I'll be thrilled if Epic Battles and or Huge Conversion kits are available for purchase at GC. I'm hoping that FFG will at least be running demos of Epic Battles (simplistic scenario to showcase formation movement and the new upgrades/cards) & Huge Ship mechanics at GC.
  3. I am anxious to learn more about Huge ship movement as there is allot of room to allow these ships to be at the same level, so to speak, as the S, M & L ships. I'm not suggesting that the Huge ships use the same move templates as the SML ships, just hoping that the huge ships will be able to cover the same amount of ground as the SML ships. On the other hand, I don't want to over complicate Huge ship movement (e.g., some limitation on turn to turn differences in speed for selected maneuvers) to give the huge ships the same abilities as SML. I think I'd be somewhat happy if the same shape of tool was used, but have the speed distance match SML ships. I'm okay with the Huge ships taking longer to turn but hated that it took them so long to get to the other side of the map. It made mission development difficult.
  4. Speaking of making the ISD the play area - here is an example of a 1st edition mission doing just that....
  5. I’m going from memory, Thursday at 3 or 4 pm. I don’t have my schedule handy. My track record for new event requests after the initial deadline is something like 0 for 8, so I’m not holding my breath...
  6. @heychadwick I'm not seeing it in the system. Can you post the event number?
  7. I submitted a request through my EO for an ASTEROIDS! event at Gen Con 2019 (Thursday afternoon). I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will be accepted at this late date.
  8. If you have enough of them, you can modify the cardboard asteroids like this.

    Only 3 Epic ships??

    I'm a little excited about the Huge ship conversion kits. I love the idea that the kit will convert all 5 Huge ships and that all 7 factions will be represented (each Huge ship being available in 2 different factions). I'm bummed, however, that each kit only comes with enough plastic for two ships. If I get 2 conversion kits, I'll have enough cardboard to fly both Huge ship models for the factions they will support but will come up several bases short to field all of them. I'm hoping FFG will start selling medium and Huge ship bases in the near future. I want to be able to host huge ship battles in 2.0. Wonder if the large bases could be used in a pinch?.?.?.
  10. It was great to have both Jimmy and you join our Flight Group Alpha squadron. You both fit in well with our wacky ways and did far better than I tend to in the missions. I'm hoping you will have another opportunity to hang with us in the future.
  11. I'm seriously ready for some no kidding casual play. I'm hoping this is just the beginning of something HUGE!
  12. The Shuttle Tydirium podcast is maintaining copies of the FGA products in their Holodrive (along with other mission/campaign based rules): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PkI7Ef0IKxvmR25hDsdkarMln93bSulE
  13. Foam storage Flowcharts Improper pronunciation of ship names Providing 2 answers to almost every thought provoking question
  14. Arrival of the long awaited and highly desired Shuttle Tydirium podcast templates!
  15. I have to agree - nothing would be more epic than, well, EPIC!
  16. Oh, that is a great idea! I would vote for 3 charges.

    Scenario play?

    If you can, put Gen Con on your "to attend" list. The Shuttle Tydirium podcast has hosted several cooperative and campaign/narrative events there the past few years, with some of them providing prizes to participants and/or winners. Heroes of the Aturi Cluster, TRON WING, Trench Runs, Mario Kart, Star Destroyer Missions, Huge Ship Battles, etc. The largest of these events was the Assault on Grayskull Base Narrative Event - 4 rounds of head to head, objective based campaign competition that pits two teams against each other to determine the fate of the story arc, while still providing a means to recognize individual achievement. Participation has been in the 15-25 players, so not nearly as large as most tournament events, but it still provides a great psuedo-competitive atmosphere in a setting other than straight up death match. You can check out the Grayskull Campaign here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxGM5RCgYyo9SnFmZThGb3VSbU0 And if you are really into it, you can listen to the audio drama backstory for the Grayskull Campaign: https://shuttletydirium.podbean.com/e/grayskull-the-complete-series/ There are rumors of a new narrative campaign being in the works for Gen Con 2019.
  18. I'm sorry, I don't understand the question. Would you please rephrase?
  19. Either would be fine, but I think developing your own version of R5-K6 (or a 2nd edition version of the original) would be fun.
  20. I updated my variant of DD's trench run mission to 2nd edition rules. I didn't add anything to the scenario, only adjusted it for the conversion (pilots, abilities, actions, weapons, etc.). https://drive.google.com/open?id=10w3L0ANbK3caj9VYJBxcxxgctP5OceAj
  21. Yes - as mentioned in another post, it was Flight Group Alpha. Another update to FGA is due to drop soon.
  22. Check out http://www.creat3dprops.com/star-wars.html They have a turbolaser dice tower.
  23. That turbo looks great! I’m a sucker for great scenery.
