    I think Kylo Ren is a great villian - I hate his guts already. He's got enough power to be dangerous, and enough servility to be wretched.

    Hantheman reacted to thespaceinvader in TFA and prequal ships [SPOILER POTENTIAL]   
    I could see an updated Falcon set, but I'd kind of hope they wouldn't; maybe a TFA crew booster or something, but I'd not like to see two different Falcon boxes on the market.  e: or put them into Rebel Vets, maybe?
     
    Otherwise, there's the rear-firing Special Forces variant TIE/fo Fighter, Leia's shuttle, Ren's shuttle, the stormtrooper transports, and Han's big giant freighter.  Not a lot of goodies, really, and I doubt many of them are interesting enough to bother with.  Hoping Rogue One and Ep VIII bring something more interesting.
     
    Until then, Rebels still has plenty of stuff to mine out before they need to go back to the prequels, and I think that they'd struggle to do that because of the faction issues.  Plus there's Rebel Veterans which everyone is assuming will be a thing, and Scum Aces which everyone's hoping for, neither of which seem likely to include any new ships.
    I do think it's a shame we'll almost certainly not see anything from the prequels because I really do like virtually all of the ship designs from them.  The movies were terrible, but I liked most of the visuals and design work, and I'd love to be able to zip around in a Jedi Starfighter, in particular.

    Rolling 15 dice on clusters is probably going to a very long time and a take up a lot of memory to run but if your computer is up to it it should run it. Gunner + clusters/TLT is not currently supported though (noted by the *).

    The Gauntlet does seem like a fine candidate for Scum. It shows up in several newcanon sources, starting with the Clone Wars, continuing to Rebels, and even showing up 30 years after Endor in a pre-TFA short story.

    The Scyk is an unusual ship - it really only works as a glass cannon and there are few ways to make it more durable. Most other customizations are simply too expensive once you kit out the ship.
     
    This was a rather customizable ship in the fluff - too bad about the way it turned out. On the plus side its the most likely ship to see an ace style fix once Wave 8 releases.

    1) Max could be in it but the Chuch of the Force (is it called that) won't have been created yet - prob an aftermath story.
    2) Poe is just born around the time of RotJ (not sure when). In Rebels he won't even have been a naughty thought in his daddy's mind yet.
    3) Maz is never said to be a pirate in the movie (Good thing) but it is in the promo pre-release material.
     
       
    Ren also has bowcaster bolt in his belly, kindly donated by Chewbacca. A bowcaster bolt usually has an explosive tip, which means he has a belly full of shrapnel during the lightsabre duel - its kind of distracting.

    Hantheman got a reaction from Bojanglez in SW Rebels new fighter maybe   
    The ships and droids were the only thing I can say I liked about Episode 1 - the vastly different aesthetic was much appreciated by me as it served to give the Trade Federation and Naboo a distinct cultural identity. Too bad the the rest of the movie was really, really bad. Episode 2 didn't really have much ships and mostly returned to the generic Star Wars aesthetic, but kept the terribad story. Episode 3 had possibly the ugliest ships (the ARC was probably the prettiest Republic ship - the CIS ships looked much better), the story was a refief as you know there wasn't going to be any more of these sh*tty movies.
     
    And yes - the N1 been recently featured in a Star Wars: Shattered Empire. The main driving force for myself and others like me to see it in the game is to have Leia in a starfighter. Poe Dameron's mom flies another of the 3.

    That's one of those things that's cool in theory, but I don't want a new model for that one change. Now... if they did a "most wanted" style box that was Rebellion/Resistance only, that updated the E-Wing and (say) the Hawk? it would be cool to put extra Falcon stuff in there without a model.

    I agree with most of your assessment, except for the EU. I couldn't care less about it. I'm glad the slate is clean.
    I viewed this movie as the bridge from the original trilogy, they had to tie it all together and they wanted to use the original cast to help the transition. Now the future movies can do their own thing.
    I'm really looking forward to them!
    The battles were outstandingly done, and overall I really enjoyed the film.

    He's Yavinian (sp?) His folks raised him on Yavin 4. He's a rebel brat - born and raised in the Rebellion. Mom's a fly girl, dad's a ground pounder - a true starship trooper .

    Hantheman got a reaction from eagletsi111 in A possible Scyk tweak?   
    Not sure where you got this idea. The Scyk barely had space to customize. Your dream release, the CloakShape was the ultra customizable ship that could plug in and out entirely new systems to keep it up to date.
     
    The Scyk's main gimmick in lore was that it could swap it's main weapon to practically anything usually another low power energy weapon or a launcher. The "Heavy" Scyk was more customizable in terms of power and mass for the weapon.

    Hantheman reacted to Warpman in Prediction time again - what -will- we see in Wave 9?   
    How many fetts is Firespray-31?
    let's see, he's 183
    185 because of helmet and soles of armour
    Firespray is 13 (1 is not seen, picture too small) Fetts long
    what means it's 24 meters long, if we measure from the dish edge.
    22 if we measure from the hull, and not the engine dish part.
    so it's normal.
    But if they are in the same 1\N scale then it should be two times shorter than YV-s REDUCED length.
    so the 1\N scale is different.
     
    ??? 
    ****.

    Those triggers are different. Also its not really squad-wide. Kanan is a 2 range debuffer who can spend a focus token to debuff an enemy ship who makes an attack. The target of the attack is irrelevant, only the position of the enemy ship making the attack.
     
    Hmmmm Kanan and Kyle on a HWK....
