  1. Hi. This must have come up several times already but also there’s so much content now so maybe it’s okay to ask? (I had all for Lord of the rings lcg but sold it since it was too bloated for me. After some years I have now bought the core again together with first 3 full cycles of expansions and the 8 saga expansions and I’m gonna stop there. ) I know the way is to get a core set and maybe even 2 but where to go from there in order to avoid bloat and still get a good experience? Could one just go Delux expansions or do you miss too much not buying the smaller chapter or asylum or what they are called packs? I’m not a completionist I just want to play a good horror game solo and get caught up in the story and game mechanics. Appreciate any guidance here 😊
  2. I do like all four factions but what I use to play in other games are dwarves. Anyone knows if they exists in this universe and if we might see them?
  3. Hi. just wanted to ask those of you who are deep into this game. I have seen some crazy 50-70% price off offers. Not a lot but more than a few. That just made me think that I hope this game isn’t on its way out? I wanna get a lot of stuff recommended in another thread I have started and wanna be sure I have time to get it all. Has there been any news or rumours about the state of the game?
  4. Thanks guys. Helped me out a bunch. But let me frase the question like this: if I just wanna have a game and go 1,2,3 here’s two armies let’s play. How du I get the best verity? Can I then go with just the core, the essentials box and the delux expansion for each of the two edditional factions? I’m not really into getting into the more complicated strategies. Just wanna have a game where I can pitch two armies against each other. Like BattleLore but I want the casual wargame feeling I you know what I mean?
  5. Hi. I have long wanted to get into a miniature wargame. I know a little about the Warhammer fantasy universe and like the setting. But as I have to pay for, paint and collect 2 factions it just seems too overwhelming with 2 player starter sets that has only the factions I’m not interested in?No gaming groups near I live in Norway. So after investigating a little I discover Runewars. The lore and universe don’t seem too interesting or immersing but it looks interesting anough. So my question is this: 1. What do I need to build a nice base game for two players. Non competitive just casual’ish. Not necessarily interested in buying everything but enough to get some fun and entertaining armies. Is it enough if I buy 1x core set 1x essential box 1x Elven delux expansion 1x Ugly-big-boys-Ythul-something delux expansion 2. Anyone know if there’s plans for dwarfs? Ill take every advise you guys can give me.
  6. Hi. I would like to know from anyone who plays both campaign and skirmish and have all or most of expansions. I wanna buy this game and get a kind of classic Star Wars feel both regarding the campaign game and the skirmish game. I’m gonna play casual’ish with a friend. The price tag if I’m gonna buy everything is just not realistic. So in order to get a fairly balanced game what should I invest in? I was thinking the main game cause. Then over time every big box expansion? And I was thinking the main characters from episode 4-6 like R2D2/C3PO Lando Leia Solo Chewie Luke Obi wan Maul The emperor Jabba Guido Bobba Fet What packs do I need in addition to keep the game interesting and balanced?
  7. Wow. I don't even know if I have enough cards to make 12 decks simulaniously that are all good ? Do you know if it would be wise to get multiple copies of the other Gen Con PoDs? Or is this the only one this far?
  8. Is it neccessary with multiple packs to play 12? Maybe a dumb question but these kind of epic scenarios are unknown to me
  9. You guys are great. This discussion really clearifyes some things for me. Ehat makes it so hard for me is that sometimes I don't have time or energy to get into a game I find interesting 100% there and then. But after a while I usually get around to put some time into it. And from experience this can be a mixed experience. Some games where not my style after all and they where sold or gifted away. Others where great buys. And yet a few would have been a great buy if I had had the time when I bought it to dig into it. This because they where either unbalanced or needed a few expansions but then it was too late due to discontinuation. This is why I found x-wing a little complicated at first. Because all the builds where you needed multiple ships of the same type. This time I'll just buy into what I think makes a great core build. And then I'll focus on Armada and buy the new stuff there ?
  10. Depends on the definition of far I'd have to go 1,5 hour by car to Oslo. That's a pretty long way for a gaming evening and for the price of gasoline and other expenses I could buy half an Armada core sett. I know what you mean though. But I'm not going to built a community. I just don't have that kind of time between work, study and kids. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't buying two games if one game gave you both dogfight and epic. But now I know. Thanks
  11. Thanks for your replies. It's as I feared then. Bye wallet ?
  12. Well that is kind of part of the problem. There's no communities that's interested in either game where I live. It all comes down to what I think looks fun and then try and introduce to one of my friends. Maybe two. This also means that I have to invest in it before they might dip into it as well. And if they don't like it I still want to get enough of a game or both to be able to treat it as a kind of core game to play with my kids in 5 years from now ? That's why I ask before I destroy my wallet
  13. Hi. I have a question for those who have played both games. I have been playing X-Wing casually and ended up selling my collection. A few years later I'm about to get back in. But I also like the idea of the big ship combat from Armada. I think it will be too expensive to dig into both games. Even as a casual player there's ships you just "need". Either for balance or for nostalgia ? I don't think you get the "big slow ship battle feel" with x-wing even with the epic ships. Correct? But do you come close to the dogfight feel from x-wing when using the squadrons in Armada? It seems hard to choose between these two games as a casual player. Something tells me I might end up using money on both games anyway but if you get a better al around feeling with Armada I'd rather use the most on that one if that makes sense?
  14. First off thanks for the replies. Nice to get some simple advices once in a while ??? Now, based upon what you suggested and what I generally thought looked fun (haven't gone through the details of reading up upon each expansion and what they include) here's what I think I will invest in over the next couple of months: (1 of each only) Upsilon class shuttle Y-wing expansion Special forces Tie X-wing exp. Heroes of the resistance Most wanted Tie advance exp. Lambda class shuttle Tie defender Slave one Star Viper Tie/fo fighter exp. Rebel aces Tie phantom B-wing T-70 X-wing Tie bomber HWK290 Tie interceptor Punishing one Millennium falcon Imperial veterans A-wing Tie fighter exp. U-wing Now this is what looks fun but I have no idea if any of these ships is a waste of money in casual and/or theme play. I must have the Millennium falcon, x-wing with Luke and Tie advance with Vader. But anything else is open for changes. Anyone think I should let any of these ships go? Replace with other? Or does this look like a fine list to go for and then stop buying anything more?
  15. Hi. I'm coming back to x-wing and I'm starting from the scratch again. I would like to build a good core sett. I'm looking to get between 1-2 big ships and enough small ships to make it fun and balanced between the 3 factions(no epic size) I have bought 1 x Standard core sett and 1 x Force awakens start sett. Beside this what would you recommend? I'm not really on a budget. I just don't wanna buy everything since it would be too overwhelming ?
