  1. Right now, I'm only on a Core Set and a couple of figure packs, so I have a set of those foam trays that just fit in the Core Set box. It's great for now, but once I get my first big box expansion I'm sore outta luck!
  2. Endor, sure. Dagobah.......I dunno. Somehow, I just don't see either skirmish OR campaign going on in Yoda's backyard. And yes, please to more we can in the words Sidious said to Maul, "Wipe them out......ALL of them."
  3. Oh, just cardboard (I shoulda specified). It doesn't need to be fancy schmancy, it just has to work!
  4. I figure what the heck, I'll throw this one out there: Does anyone have (or know someone who does) a spare set of the range rulers sitting in a box somewhere? Lemme know, I'm sure we can figure out SOMEthing lol.
  5. Interesting thought! If I go Auto, that gives me 6 points to spare, though. I'll definitely have to find something else to fill in the points for sure.
  6. Build #1 Miranda Doni (29) Twin Laser Turret (6) Extra Munitions (2) Sabine Wren (2) Conner Net (4) Ion Bombs (2) Ion Bombs (2) Advanced SLAM (2) Captain Nym (Rebel) (30) Push the Limit (3) Autoblaster Turret (2) Extra Munitions (2) Ion Pulse Missiles (3) Bomblet Generator (3) Accuracy Corrector (3) R4-B11 (3) Long-Range Scanners (0) Havoc (0) Total: 98 View in Yet Another Squad Builder Build #2 Miranda Doni (29) Twin Laser Turret (6) Plasma Torpedoes (3) Extra Munitions (2) Sabine Wren (2) Thermal Detonators (3) Cluster Mines (4) Advanced SLAM (2) Captain Nym (Rebel) (30) Veteran Instincts (1) Twin Laser Turret (6) Bomblet Generator (3) Accuracy Corrector (3) "Genius" (0) Engine Upgrade (4) Havoc (0) Total: 98 View in Yet Another Squad Builder ******* I'm debating adding maybe a Torpedo of some sort into Miranda for Build #1, and an Ion Bomb to Miranda in Build #2 just to make it a little stronger of a threat and to fill out the points. Eh, I dunno.
  7. The only question you need to ask yourself is "Will I enjoy playing this?" If you answered yes, well, that's all the answer you need!
  8. Which is why I sadly am not current with the LCG. Like with Pokemon and Clix, just too costly at this point to get up to current. When I last looked, I think I'm FIVE sets behind. Ouch!
  9. For me when it comes to all these SW games and trying to NOT go broke keeping up, it's a matter of what I need for which games: -Rebellion (and to an extent, IA) are probably the easiest for me to keep up with. Those, I can fit in between other things, or just grab them last. I think Legion will fall into this category. I'll get a Core Set of course, and then I'll see what (or if) I want to get anything else (I LOVE the map/playmats for IA!). -X-Wing is the game I probably play the most, BUT it's also the game I need the least of. There are only a couple ships I need to get, and then this will get bumped behind Rebellion/IA while waiting for the Blastboat. -Armada is the game that I not only have the least of, but need the most of. So, right now, Armada has my wallet priority. See, I'm (thank God) NOT a "one of everything" player when it comes to these games. I have set goals to where I want to get to in order to play the game, and once I get there, I'm on cruise control from then on: -Armada: enough to do at least 2 different 400-point builds for each side. That way it's not basically the same 400-point Empire vs the same 400-point Rebels every dang time. -X-Wing: multiple 100-point builds for Rebel and Empire. I'm ALREADY at this point, just need one more ship (maybe two) to get to cruise control status, and even that one or two ships I'll have soon anyway. -IA: I'm really already on cruise control here, but I could always get a map playmat here and there. -Rebellion: I'll pick up the expansion at some point. I DO feel for anyone that wants to try getting into multiple games all at once. Shelling out the cash for two (or more) Core Sets at once.....yikes!
  10. Well, we tried BOTH....first the Core Set, then my two build lists in my first post. In the Core Set battle, Luke took out both TIE's pretty handily. It was over pretty quick. When we jumped to the 100 point builds, I figured with two ships with 360 arcs, she wouldn't have to worry much about the firing arc, and she could eat my squad for lunch. BOY WAS I WRONG! The dice went totally cold on her (and they were lukewarm at best for me), she got the shields down on the IG-88A but that was about it. There were a lot of total misses on both ends of the table. Luke was chasing down IG while the other 4 ships were in an intergalactic traffic jam. Made for one heckuva dogfight though! By the time IG took Luke out, Boba and Kanos were able to wipe Chewie out, and then IG swooped in to help finish off Dash. We're probably gonna play a couple more games tomorrow (Labor Day weekend, and we're BOTH off work Monday!), so I'm sure we'll try some other builds, maybe integrate the pilot abilities and upgrades.
  11. Even the LCG I had problems keeping up with (but I LOVE the game though!). I just got too far behind, then they started rotating sets, rinse, repeat.
  12. Working on some builds to get Mrs Deogg into playing X-Wing. To make things initially easy for her to jump in I figured the following: 100 point build (I wanted to do more than just the Core Set) She gets to play as the Rebels NO upgrades/special abilities/tokens (except for shields). Keeping it as simple as possible. .....basically enough to get a feel of movment and shooting For her build, here's what I went with: -YT-1300 (Chewie) -YT-2400 (Rendar) -Core Set X-Wing (Luke) To counter her, here's the build I quick whipped up for myself: -Boba Fett -IG88-A -Kir Kanos Both builds come out to 100 points on the nose. There's using both small and larger ships, learning about firing arcs, range, shooting, pretty much all the basics. Though I think with going up against TWO 360-firing arcs, I'm gonna get destroyed. But, all worth it! Decent builds to start with?
  13. Amen to that. And, the great thing is, none of them have sucked.
  14. This is why I have been avoiding getting into Destiny (and really most CCG's in general). For X-Wing, with the stuff that I've had for well over a year (or more) , I could still easily whip up builds that can be competitive. And, I only need a couple of pieces to finish out everything I'm even looking for (until the Blastboat drops). I'm sure I'll be able to say the same for Armada soon enough. I don't HAVE to buy every single thing in order to keep going. I've definitely noticed a huge shift in my gaming interests in the last probably 3-4 years. I used to play Pokemon (too much stuff too fast and too expensive to stay current), then went to Heroclix, and THAT game is a nightmare to afford to stay current. There was a core group of 4-5 of us that would stay current and keep playing. ALL of us have gotten out. There's just so much coming out so fast, that we can't keep up. Nowadays, outside of non-Destiny FFG Star Wars games, which are easy for me to keep up with, I'm more into stuff like Upper Deck's VS 2PCG system, or Legendary Encounters, or Cryptozoic's DC and Lord of the Rings Deck Builders; stuff that I can just bust out the box and I'm ready to go. I was just in Indy for GenCon, and in the span of 2 days that I was in Indy, I picked up stuff from FIVE games. The ONLY CCG stuff I picked up was stuff at a local bookstore and they were only 5 bucks a pop (2 World of Warcraft starters). The shift is definitely there, and I think my wallet (and probably Mrs Deogg too) thanks me for it. I'm sure Destiny is fun. It's just a road that I don't want to go back down. I have X-Wing (and Star Trek Attack Wing too). And Armada. And IA. And Legion. And THE RERELEASED RPG!!!!!! (Gee, I'm not just a LITTLE excited about that). I think my Star Wars fix is well supplied!
  15. Nobody else to play them with anymore is the big factor. I kept all my cards obviously (because hey, it's STAR WARS), but games die out, people move on to other stuff, it happens.
