    Oh wow. It just hit me that this means we could get a Samuel L. Jackson card. I'll be looking forward to the unofficial nicknames/titles I'll see for that. Jim
  2. Personally hoping for the announcement of Prequel factions for both X-Wing and Armada. On a non-Star Wars note, hoping for some sort of Descent announcement - either 3.0 or new content for Road to Legends, anything!!! Jim
  3. Any chance of you doing a fillable Star Warriors ship sheet for roll20? Jim

    X-Wing+WEG RPG

    I think if I we're going to use the WEG rules for an RPG campaign then I would get some hex maps with larger hexes and use the minis only from X-Wing to play Star Warriors as the space combat system. For the reasons mcintma listed. Probably a far simpler task than trying to integrate the actual X-Wing rules with the WEG system. And Star Warriors was a really fun game on its own. Jim

    Revelations from Thrawn #6

    That's great that the Daedelus is in there. The latest issue of Dr. Aphra had a "pirate space station" that was VERY obviously a modified Babylon 5 station (the big changes were the solar panels and forward cargo forks were removed). Jim

    Anyone else feeling stuck by this change?

    Descent 2nd Edition came out in 2012 and the conversion kit is still available on the FFG website. Granted, it's not a guarantee but the precedent is there for long term availability. Jim

    What is X wing 2.0 official release date

    September 13th is the official release date.
  8. This is wrong. They are not talking about Ventress in Solo. They are talking about Aurra Sing. Jim

    2e on the cheap

    I will not forget one glorious day when my Empire army grew by several units of halberdiers and knights. Was in Walmart and they had their Battlemasters on clearance for $4.99 each. I bought ten sets. Jim

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    Saw it last night. Loved it! Liked it more than Rogue One or TLJ. Maybe even more than Return of the Jedi. My daughter has wholeheartedly declared it her favorite Star Wars movie. She absolutely loved Qira. We'll be going at least 2 or 3 more times in the theater. Jim

    YT-2400 2.0 the new Jumpmaster?

    You keep assuming that the 2.0 YT-2400 is going to have a Gunner slot when that may not be the case at all. Jim

    When Will They Stop Selling 1.0 Ships?

    I'm sure they will want to sell off any remaining stock of 1.0. I doubt there will be a "hard date" to stop because it isn't like they are going to rip all those open and repackage models in 2.0 packaging. Will likely just be a matter of, when a store runs out they won't be able to order more of the 1.0 of whatever ship and it will be out of print until the 2.0 version is released. On the plus side, even new players will be able to get the older ships for awhile if they want to jump in hard with conversion kits. Jim

    Conversion Kit Unboxing on 5/18

    Yes. They have stated pretty clearly that the Quick Build cards will only feature upgrades from the expansion the ship comes in (and maybe the core set cards) so it makes complete sense that they won't be putting Quick Build cards into the conversion kits, because they don't have all the new cards that will come in the re-issue 2.0 packs done yet. It's disappointing, but it does make sense. I'm hoping that whatever they provide as an option for getting the cards in a wave without having to buy new models will also include the Quick Build cards.
  14. Tarkin in RotS wasn't CGI. It was actor Wayne Pygram. Just FYI. Jim

    FFG, please take your time testing 2.0

    You won't need the app to actually play. Just for squad building. Also, for truly casual, people can build squads using the Quick Build cards provided with each ship - just build to a specified threat level using the cards and you're good to go. Jim
