  1. A friend and I made this before Wave 3/4 was even out, so our modest efforts at balancing it are probably worthless now, but it was a fun enough scenario to try out: Custom Scenario - Shipyard Assault
  2. Haha thanks. I might be about to tear the bridge section off a gladiator and replace it with one from a BFG Chaos Cruiser. Got all summer to figure it out.
  3. @dsnowak Any chance there will be a sub-competition for "most pirate-looking" fleet as part of the tournament?
  4. @darkknight109 Cap116 above is exactly right -- it's a couple DX9s in a fighter peg, with the 2nd Gozanti in the last fighter peg slot. I'll try to take a better photo of it for you, if you'd like. I got them from Mel's, and the model is really nice and detailed: https://www.shapeways.com/product/3JDGZWDA2/armada-6x-dx-9-stormtrooper-transport
  5. 2019 Regionals Fleet The painting came down to the wire, but I finished* painting this Ackbar fleet in time for the Virginia Regional at Huzzah Hobbies yesterday. I've been pretty happy with how this paint scheme has come out across the different ships, although now I feel like the MC40 could use some work to get it to match the later 2 ships. *The slicer tool on the front of the slicer flotilla needs some work, but I needed 6 hours of sleep before a 4-round armada tournament...
  6. Mel's MC19 Shout out to @melminiatures for a great original Mon Cal design for a small capital ship - I'm using the MC19 as a substitute for Jaina's Light in an Ackbar fleet (matching paint schemes below).
  7. Ha that's right! I'd like to think Dodonna put some valuable salvage rigged with explosives in that asteroid field, and Hondo was just too greedy to pass it up.
  8. Elimination Round: @clontroper5 vs CyborgNinja Clontroper5 picked 1st Player and Precision Strike CyborgNinja: very little (2 flotillas, 1 victory token) Clontroper5: Tabled plus lots of victory tokens CLONTROPER5 MOVES ON TO THE QUARTERFINALS!!!! Clon's great play had me on the run from early on - awesome job and good luck with the rest of the tournament! Here's a round-by-round breakdown if you wanted more... Round 1: Hook onto Demo's side or the ISD's side? Two equally terrible choices await the Rebels.... Round 2: ...And it all starts to fall apart for the Rebels. Early strong activations from Morna and Ciena knock out the lead X-Wing, leaving just enough room for Maarek (double tapped from Jendon) to scalpel out Jan from the Rebel squad formation. If that wasn't bad enough, Toryn's flotilla gets toasted by Demo's post-move attack (rolled double accuracy / double hit-crit...). With Demo's flank obstructed too, the Scurrgs come in to finish off Morna and Maarek after the X's whiffed pretty hard. Round 3: It's all downhill from here (or uphill, depending on the way you like to use the most ambiguous metaphor). The Rebels have to start hoping for amazing bombing runs on the ISD, which they definitely don't get. Demo wipes out the corvette you see it targeting below (but gets stuck back using the double ram to do it), and Avenger's flak is seriously laying into the Rebel squads that are left. Round 4: The assault frigate is just out of black range of BTAvenger this round, but its fate is sealed at this point --- no amount of side shots and mediocre bombing runs (Nym had 3 straight accuracy/blank shots along the way...) is taking down the ISD. Suppressor and Leia's Bomber Command Center decide to ram each other off the board this round. Round 5: Here come the boarding troopers! There's goes the space whale! Round 6: And there goes Dodonna, a sliver in black range on Avenger's front arc (although Demo had him lined up just in case the most epic of whiff rolls occurred).
  9. VWC participation cards are in! Everyone's receiving 2 copies of an alt art Hondo officer card. Of course you're free to do whatever you want with them, but @BiggsIRL and I thought it would be very Hondo of you to give the 2nd copy to whoever you're playing the first time you use your copy of the card. I still need mailing info from the following players so I can send their cards: @Dupy @OutboundFlight @Roquax @GiledPallaeon @PartyPotato @comatose @Bantha @The_tony_davis @Tokra @Dark Raver @MandalorianMoose Here's the link to the google form.
  10. Ever watch Return of the Jedi and think "those angry space triangles should be winning!"? Ever watch Star Trek IV and think "they should murder that space whale and be done with it"? Ever wish someone made a bizarro R-rated cartoon involving anthropomorphized letters where M's and a J slaughtered hapless X's? If so, tune in for @clontroper5 vs CyborgNinja Saturday 1/26 at 10pm EST
  11. @Norell Luckily have a few. The lighting isn't consistent, haha wasn't expecting anyone to ask for WIP photos. Post-Wash / Pre-Highlighting Highlighting Half Done
  12. @TheWampa Thanks! This was the first miniature game I ever got into painting, so I'm not sure my techniques are all that great. Just a lot (too much) time and patience. I base coated the main panels a shade lighter than I wanted the final result. Then applied an even, liberal layer of black wash, making sure the panel crevasses all blacked out. After that, I used a thin brush to highlight the panel edges with the original pre-wash color. It helps that the miniature has fairly pronounced panel grooves, which made it a bit easier.
  13. @gounour @melminiatures thanks! (And Mel, thanks for making such an awesome model!) Finally finished highlighting the main color panel edges - possibly some work on the engines to finish it up, but I'm going to wait till it sees use on the table a bit before I do anything else. Added some shots to show how it compares to FFG's MC80 and the ISD (feels like a much better equal to the ISD on the board now).
  14. @clontroper5 ha thanks --- just saw in Biggs' write-up that we'll be matched in elimination. Looking forward to getting blown up by your ships haha
