  1. Infantry huh? Was that an AT-ST I saw? Hmmm...
  2. I am on-board for Armada. We made our own big ship version a few years ago we called SW Fleet Commander, that used rules similar to Axis and Allies War at Sea. Worked nicely. I am hopeful Armada lives up to expectations.
  3. um... 'COMPLAINT' thread... kind of leans toward the negative... lol
  4. True, this will enhance EoE, but when I think SW ground combat, I think of battles with a scale like Hoth or Kashyyyk or Endor, not a sneak-around small shoot-out like on Bespin. I think more like the ground missions in Empire at War, not a small team scoot and shoot like Dark Forces. This is more of a small skirmish game than a ground combat game.
  5. We've been using Firesprays, Y-Wings and Z-95's as Pirate raiding parties for awhile now, so a new criminal faction is no big news to our gaming group. I'm in.
  6. Let's keep the trolls to Descent, shall we, topher?
  7. Ok... You put that piece of crap E-Wing in... So give us the TIE Avenger, XG-1 Star Wing, and the Cygnus Spaceworks Missile Boat already!
  8. I have been looking at FF's upcoming game, Imperial Assault. As far as actual 'ground combat' goes, this is just a Descent rework. Might as well be 'Star Wars: Mansions of Madness.' C'mon FF, give us an X-Wing Minis ground game with Rebel snowspeeders using the same set-up as X-Wing Minis starfighters. Give us some AT-AT's (which at 1/270, clock in at 8.34cm) with large ship type set-up with multiple firing arcs. A few DF.9 anti-infantry turrets, some 1.4 FD P-towers, and a few small multi-figure infantry stands for both sides; and you got a nice Battle of Hoth starter box. And you have all kinds of different boosters to go with; AT-ST's, speeder bikes, Endor Rebel infantry, all kinds of Imperial infantry, dewbacks, tauntauns, and landspeeders or hover tanks. The possibilities are endless! A game like that, tied to the already popular X-Wing Minis franchise, would sell like hot cakes! So instead of giving us a Descent re-work, give us a REAL ground combat game based on the X-Wing Miniature franchise.
  9. Why? Because FF is stuck in a rut? Or because people will shell out money for a re-worked POS game because it has 'Star Wars' in the title? If this game is 'ground combat,' then so is Chutes and Ladders...
  10. Ok FF, this just looks like a Mansions of Madness rehash. Want to make a good ground assault game? Give us an X-Wing morph with snowspeeders using the same set-up as starfighters. Give us AT-AT's (which at 1/270, clocks in at 8.34cm) with large ship type set-ups. A few DF.9 turrets, some 1.4 FD P-towers, and a few small multi-figure infantry stands for both sides; and you got a nice Battle of Hoth starter box. And you have the potential for all kinds of boosters to work with; AT-ST's, speeder bikes, Endor jungle-type infantry, Imperial infantry out the wazoo, and landspeeders or tanks. C'mon! The possibilities are endless! And THAT game, tied to your already popular X-Wing Minis franchise, would sell. Big time. So instead of giving us more schlock re-works, give us a REAL ground combat game. Feel free to get ahold of me Fantasy Flight at snurtman@gmail.com, because your designers need some serious help with this game...
  11. If you don't know what this is, then go look it up. But the V38 "Phantom" TIE Fighter would be an interesting miniature. It's cloaking abilities would make it a formidable opponent. I would also like to see the Gallofree GR-75 Medium Transport. If you don't know what that ship is, it's the first Rebel Transport that escapes from Hoth in ESB. We are using the one that comes from the Rebel Base model made by ERTL. It is close to scale and works great for escort missions.
  12. Ha! It worked! I ain't 'fraid of no ghost!
  13. Ah screw it. I can't remeber how to post pics on the forum. this might work…
  14. Last try… http://s1226.photobucket.com/albums/ee417/snurtman/?action=view&current=Venkman.jpg http://s1226.photobucket.com/albums/ee417/snurtman/?action=view&current=Ray.jpg http://s1226.photobucket.com/albums/ee417/snurtman/?action=view&current=Egon.jpg http://s1226.photobucket.com/albums/ee417/snurtman/?action=view&current=Winston.jpg
