I made these 2, any advices?.
wblackthorn reacted to Phoenix_FFG in Greetings...
I'm Phoenix; long time lurker, first time poster.
I know the first post you are supposed to make is shock over the state of "Not available" showing on Star Wars Imperial Assault products on the Fantasy Flight Games website, but lurking has taught me how often that happens and to understand the reasoning for that situation. Instead, I'd just like to say 'hello' and contribute a bit to the forums as I'm finally joining the Imperial Assault community.
I owned the Imperial Assault Core Set for a few years but never went beyond reading the rulebooks due to lack of people to play with, weird work hours, access to expansions and Ally and Villain packs, and general life. As life changes, so have all these roadblocks to playing. Years ago I used to play/paint/teach Warhammer 40,000 and The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game - eventually the teaching killed the hobby for me. When Fantasy Flight Games obtained the Star Wars license, I was very excited, having also come from a background of teaching/playing Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Miniatures Game. The X-Wing Miniatures Game was released with pre-painted miniatures and this just grabbed me from day one (no more painting!). But since then I have taken the plunge back into painting (after six years) as I want the Imperial Assault miniatures to look great on the beautiful cardboard tiles of the game, to really get a great Star Wars experience.
Well, that's enough reading. I'm sure you have much better things to do.
wblackthorn reacted to Bitterman in Make your own Deployment Cards - in five minutes or less!
Update - you can now find this tool and more in the Kensei Imperial Assault Tools Suite!
Like I expect many others, I have often wished I could make my own Deployment Cards. This would be particularly useful in a campaign - how many missions say things like "the Imperial Officer represents Thaanos, he has +10 Health and +1 Movement"? Wouldn't it be great to have that on a card! Or, if only I could design my own units... or even combine Darth Vader and Driven by Hatred into a single card for convenience. Fantasy Flight are nice enough to spoil many of their cards online, so someone with artistic talent and a graphics editor can usually come up with something pretty decent... but I have no artistic talent at all.
I can write code, though, so I decided to make a tool to do it for me!
That shows the editor, in the process of creating a deployment card I'll be using in the next mission our group will be playing in our campaign. The most time-consuming part of it was finding a suitable piece of artwork in Google Images... overall this card took about five minutes to make.
Here's another example of a card made with this tool for use in a campaign:
And here's one for a custom unit that I made up, that could be used in homebrew campaign scenarios, or friendly skirmish games:
All you have to do once you've designed your card is print it out (either from the tool itself or by pasting the image it creates into your preferred printing software), then optionally glue it onto a spare Deployment Card that you may have lying around:
You can download the tool from here. Enjoy!
wblackthorn reacted to Majushi in First Expansion Set
Yeah, I'm going to have to echo the above sentiments;
Jabba's Realm is best bang for buck in both Skirmish and Campaign.
Ally and Villain packs are a little more tricky to recommend, as a lot of them require the box expansions they came out with to have the right tiles to play.
Twin Shadows - Boba Fett, R2-D2 & C-3PO, Kayn Somos, Bantha Rider
Return to Hoth - Leia, Dengar, General Sorin
Bespin Gambit - Lando, Bossk, Agent Blaise, ISB Infiltrators
Jabba's Realm - Jedi Luke, Jabba, Captain Terro
Heart of the Empire - Ahsoka, Maul, Palpatine
Additional Ally/Villain packs with no corresponding box all use only Core tiles;
Alliance Smuggler, Jawa Scavenger, Hired Guns, Hera & Chopper, Grand Inquisitor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Greedo, BT-1 & 0-0-0, Wookie Warriors, Stormtroopers
And finally, Ally and Villain packs that were released with the Core (and only use core tiles);
Han, Chewbacca, IG-88, General Weiss, Royal Guard Champion, Rebel Troopers, Rebel Saboteurs
All in all, it's hard to recommend Ally or Villain packs without knowing the purpose. Campaign or Skirmish?
Campaign, I would probably pick packs that are usable only with Boxes you already have, So any of the ones marked RED.
Skirmish, I would probably pick as for Campaign, but with a few more to help flesh out more than two or three lists at a time. So any of the ones marked RED or ORANGE.
If you end up picking up another of the boxes (Campaign or Skirmish), I would add the ones in GREEN if you get Jabba's Realm or BLUE if you get Heart of the Empire or PURPLE if you get Return to Hoth.
EDIT: I hope that makes sense. I'm happy to clarify more about which packs and why if you want.

wblackthorn reacted to Otakuon in Who still owns copies of both of these?
Yeah, I still have my nearly complete West End Game D6 Star Wars collection sitting on my shelf (or shelves rather). Including the books in this Aniverary release. To be honest, I find FFG’s iteration to be the best yet, but these books are invaluable for reference material (heck, the entire Star Wars EU and even much of the Canon stuff now days is built on them, with story group executive Pablo Hidalgo and Rebels show runner Dave Filoni both admitting that it was because of playing the WEG Star Wars RPG that got them their jobs at Lucasfilm ). Also, there are thousands of hours of adventures packed away in these tomes which translate with little effort to the modern system.
Fun fact: my first WEG SW RPG book, and actually the book that got me into RPGs (even though it took me a while to release it was an RPG sourcebook) was the first edition Imperial Sourcebook. I found it in the gift store outside the Star Tours ride at Disney World during a visit in 1989 and begged my parents to buy it which they did but instantly regretted because I wouldn’t put it down for the rest of the trip. Arguably, it was this book that was ground zero for my continued love of Star Wars in general (this being the Dark Ages of Star Wars fandom). From there I continued to collect the rest of the books, many of them during Disney World or Disneyland trips because that was the only place I could find them (remember, this was pre World Wide Web so knowledge about game stores and such was limited. Especially to a 12 year old me).
Anyway, nostalgia never gets old I gusss...
wblackthorn reacted to bulldoguk in Painted miniatures
I'll be the first to say that the MoM minis have always been 'functional' if nothing else but with a bit of slap on they don't look half bad, we aint talking Petersen awesomeness of course but at the very least painting these has possibly put me in the mood to finally crack open that 12 foot pile of boxes with all the Cthulhu Wars KS stuff and give them a little tickle with the hairy stick!
here we go then, MoM 2 minis, haven't bothered with the investigators yet as I have plenty to fill the gaps from 1st ED, likewise the cultists from 1st ED can be used too
Painted yesterday morning for a game last night, the varnish was still tacky! Got to add I am LOVING the app driven mechanics, had 3 or 4 totally entertaining games now
Of course this now brings the total miniature content including the 1st ed stuff to a respectable level
wblackthorn reacted to Brunscheon in So, is this not the game for me?
@CubsFanSean23 I always said I would never paint minis. Runewars looked really cool, but I didn't think I'd be able to paint worth a ****. I watched the GamingGeek tutorials first then about ten hours of other painting videos (some were really good, some really bad) I actually painted the first mini of my life yesterday, and I think it turned out well. I used the basics from the above tutorial, and added a bit to it.
