    After Porkins

    Hi all, if there are any multi Transport players with a spare Porkins and and the other pilots associated with the transport, cards, tokens etc, please PM me as I'm keen to part with coin for said bits. I'm not interested in Epic but seek to collect all fighters. Thanks
  4. This is why the Falcon has wheelchair access.
  5. Sigh, sadly only the transport and it will likely sit in a cabinet as I'm only interested in the X-Wing and pilot cards.

    Factory Error

    I've posted this problem before, My B-Wing came 90 degrees left so I notified FFG and was promptly fobbed off. Apparently happy for me to glue or set it straight myself.

    Wedge Speeder Card

    Understanding it is a space game however I feel this game is incomplete without the speeder so I threw together a few ideas and came up with this pilot card. Still no reason why some of these guys couldn't duke it out against a few TIEs. Although at 1:270 it would be a small model.
  8. I understand it may be one in a million but I purchased a B-Wing and when I assembled it was orientated to the right 90 degrees. I have checked and re checked the alignment pegs and yes they only fit one way, with the B-Wing forever flying sideways. Now I did get in touch with Customer Service with a lengthy explanation however was denied an appropriate action. Feeling a little deflated with this game. As good as it is, the service and supply is poor at best.
  9. When are we going to see Porkins?
  10. vyrago said: I really gotta jump in here. Ok…first off. Yes, there has been a supply shortage to meet the demand…but thats because this game has exceeded its demand expectations. I've spoken to many store owners and they all concur that nobody was prepared for the *sudden* popularity of this game. espescially in the last 6 months, its really exploded. FFG will respond and there will be wave 1 and 2 reprints coming. Jump in all you like, doesn't change the fact that supply is woeful. The game exceeded expectations when it launched, and they knew this. We've seen two waves with supply issues, why will three be any different? My money is on a constant catch up for all releases. As we wait, potential game players slip through the cracks.
  11. Wave 4? Hell, I'd be lucky to see Wave 1,2 or 3 ships. Supply is a joke. This is a great game let down in a large way buy the inability to cope with demand. I think for wave 4 they should concentrate on pilot cards and durable plastic tokens. Surely FFG could manage that.
  12. caedjar4 said: Thanks for the feedback so far! In response to Rowdy, I had the asteroids move independantly since that is what they did in the movie and the scenario was meant to replicate that experience. Understood, however if you are going to replicate the experience then it is a forgone conclusion that the ties are destroyed and the Falcon escapes. Since thats what happened in the movie. Looking forward to trying this scenario if and when my Falcon arrives.
  13. Sounds like fun. Iam however no expert on asteroids but I dont think they move independantly rather than in the same direction, particularly as a belt or field of objects. Perhaps leave out the asteroid movement to simplify and replicate a more realistic battlespace.

    Extra Supplies.

    Well I hope someone like GF9 jump on this. If FFGs can't see the potential sales for these items it's their loss.
  15. AncientAngel said: It beats nothing at all. I am sure at some point a plastic / high end dial will be available. Hint, Hint Do you know something we don't? If FFG are serious about this game they will have to release better tools. I think they will have missed the mark if they continue with the current non replaceable cardboard tools. At the moment if a dial is lost etc, the only way to replace it is to purchase a new expansion which still leaves you short a dial. Hopefully any speculation of wave 3 is in the form of durable tokens, dials, templates etc. Thats the kind of support players are looking for. They need to be sold as a seperate unit so that we are not doubling up when a particular piece is lost or damaged. Yes I know other companies are making tokens of various quality but for me I'd like to keep it stock. Especially for any tourny requirements. Thats my two cents
  16. Great, just did all my dials, put contact on then ran a blade around them and the hole in the center, worked a treat Cheers

    Walker update

    DailyRich said: TIE Fighters are only 6.4 meters, so it really does seem like the walker should be much bigger. I mean think about it -- a TIE cockpit holds one pilot, while the AT-AT's head has room for at least three people (one of whomw is standing and walking around), and the interior is packed with troops waiting to be deployed. At this scale, you couldn't even fit anyone in the head. Scale is an issue with Star Wars because its fictional, give me an M1A1 Abrams and we could come to an accurate size but this just isn't reality. Your diagrams give a hieght of 20m or 74mm @ 1/270, the model is 68mm. So yes smaller but not by much. The TIE advanced looks bigger in the second pic because it is much closer to the camera. A snowspeeder is 19.6mm @ 1/270 and in ESB when the walker steps on it you can see the footpad (excluding toes) covers 2/3 of the ship. The footpad of this model is 12mm, so close to 2/3 of a scale snowspeeder. I know scale is a nice to have but when its fiction I think one should concentrate more on playing the game and having fun than a few mm here or there. But thanks anyway.

    Walker update

    Kaxel Vofer said: photogasm said: jetsetter said: not to nitpick…but shouldn't the AT-AT be bigger? like 2-3x that size? Was thinking the same. Scale is throwing me off to say nothing of spaaaaace. I think that we need to wait to the Snowspedeer, to be agood skirmish, greettings. Again, first part, excuse use of space mat (only used for a generic surface) I am working on a more realistic ground based board. Size? Apparently a walker is 22.5m tall, or 83mm at 1/270, this model is 72mm so yes smaller but not nearly 2-3 times too small. Its length is 74mm, Once on a base its hieght shouldn't be an issue. Close enough for a fun game. If they release one well yes I would use that. Snowspeeders, I think people want to game only Hoth when they include a walker and by all means you can however you will likely replicate the same outcome since speeders were ineffective. It was used in other fictional battles and that was what we were going for here, This one was an air escort mission where TIEs keep the Rebels from downing it. Thanks for the input.

    Walker update

    Please excuse the space board (still working on an appropriate surface). A few shots of one of our playtests. For the most part the rules worked fine. The AT-AT will soon be on a 40mmx80mm base. With the walker only taking crits as damage it came down to the wire in this one. All TIE fighters went down as did an A-Wing before it was destroyed. I guess where it needs work is the acurate measurement of turning on the spot. Veers did well with his extra attack die when stationary but those pesky Rebels will circle from behind for shots (need those escorts). P.S. sorry about image quality.
