  1. Having something that he couldn't reliable get elsewhere. Maybe he's got an extremely useful list of contacts, a reliable charter of safehouses. Maybe everybody else they could get things from is in league with the local Big Bad. Perhaps he's got too many 'friends' who'd come and make the PC's lives **** if they just gave up and put a blaster bolt through his head. Having a ship in the first place would actually be a good incentive.

    officers incoming

    Can we talk about how horrifying that smile is.

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    Even Luke wanted to join the Navy. Bunch of young, idealistic kids getting their first assignment and ready to secure peace for the galaxy having the reality of what service entails thrust upon them - and whether they'll continue - seems like a great jumping point for a campaign to me.

    New vehicles!

    Yes! Finally! This is THE model - that is, the TX-225 - I've been waiting for since Legion was announced.
  5. That The Clone Wars is a splat and not a core book tells me we're not going to see a second edition anytime soon. People have been going on about prequel-tier Jedi since before the EotE beta and they shunt them into a splat where they could otherwise go for the full-priced tome and 'justify' it based on the difference of the era and scale that AoR wasn't really designed for? Ehhh. I will say that I didn't expect a 'Bestiary Book' considering the Adversary Decks exist.

    2019 Wish List

    Imperial Army Troopers (Mudtroopers) Cassian Andor (Commander or Operative) Combat Assault Tank (from Rogue One) More generic Commanders. And, of course, Clone Wars content.

    How many CIS and how many republic

    I'm surprised at the amount of CIS support. I fully expected it to be 90% Republic here, mostly because of the Jedi. I'll probably collect both though, just so I have a force to use if I go up against another Republic player because MUH IMMERSION.

    Clone Wars Daydreaming Thread

    The Republic will definitely be the 'elite' faction I think. Between the Jedi, Clones being canon superior to Stormtroopers and how many times even the Red (White?) Shirts get outnumbered in the show. I'd love to see Admiral Trench as a Commander.

    Poe Dameron, Master Strategist?

    Except the bombers were already en-route by the time Leia gave the order to withdraw. Your example would be better if there were also Y-Wings with those two X-Wings who were flying under the assumption they'd be hitting the ISDs after the Ion shots. Not to mention they're **** slow. The dreadnought was seconds away from taking out the cruiser just before the bombs were dropped. If they were still utilising Y-Wings, I could roll with the idea of them quickly getting back to the fleet and getting the heck out of dodge, but they're not. Poe even refers to it as a fleet killer, presumably with much better range and power than the First Order's Star Destroyers considering they're side-by-side with the Dreadnought and aren't firing on the fleet, whilst they're later in-range to at least fire pot shots at the rear of the Resistance fleet. They might not even have made it by in-time.

    Rise of the Separatists Era Book

    People have been raving on about playing 'real' Jedi since the beta for EotE. If the book was crammed with Republic AND Separatist content, the forums would be filled with complaints that Jedi weren't fleshed out enough and pages were 'wasted' on the CIS content. They may well be saving CIS content for a Late War/'Fall of the Republic' book. As per the book's title, the art exclusively being Phase I armour and presumably the lack of a stated Grevous I'm still holding to that popular theory. We're probably getting Genosians because the planet is a major focus at the literal start of the war and again shortly into it, but not much afterwards.

    jyn and new troops

    I'm surprised that Jyn is a Commander and not an Operative. She was only brought along because of her personal connection with Galen afterall and didn't want anything to do with the Rebellion until the eleventh hour. Cassian by comparison was the actual leader. The Original Trilogy is 'timeless' but the lustre of Rogue One doesn't have that longevity (for the record I love RO but it definitely has less of a lingering presence in people's minds).

    WWII Situations Suggestions

    The St Nazaire Raid seems like prime stuff. Commando teams launch a raid on a German Imperial drydock in order to cripple their ability to repair their vessels locally. A dramatic plan and events, which sees a ship being rammed into it's target, a diversionary air raid and a frantic escape from overwhelming numbers of pursers.

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    "If you want a Clone Wars campaign, go buy AoR/F&D and use your imagination." "You have pretty much everything you need [for The Clone Wars] in AoR/F&D" Low and behold.
  14. The Mandalorian will be tough, grizzled, snarky, blunt but with a heart of gold. During a job he'll be forced to work with a spunky, tough (but definitely NOT grizzled) young woman who they develop a grudging respect between. She'll be revealed as working for New Republic. This won't be romantic, because these days it's the Secondary Female Character who they pair him up with to 'subvert' things. A local criminal cartel will have more powerful gear than they're supposed to. It's discovered they're being supported by bunch of English guys in black, who nobody knows about. Eventually the Mandalorian works for the Republic to subvert said English dudes who are never name dropped, yet have a very similar aesthetic to a certain group, but continually insists he's "Not part of their war." Just my cynical prediction.

    Obi Wan Miniature (Clone Wars)

    I'm hoping for the armoured version as well, considering he's about the only 'main' Jedi who's iconic to wearing it. Will have diversify the range a bit. Judging by the Rise of the Separatists cover, we may well see it.
