  1. Quadjumpers have tech slots, but there aren’t any tech cards yet! I am however, very excited by all of this. Great work Alex, Frank and Max!
  2. I went in with very low expectations, but I sat and grinned through the whole thing. Great fun, proper grungy, dusty Star Wars with no force users dominating the story line. There are some weak points, but not enough to stop it being great fun.

    Wave 14 Wish List

    I would be happy with nothing for 6 months to give time to play all the new stuff and spend my money on Legion.
  4. If the games were in the same scale I would be all over Legion. I've painted nearly all the IA minis now, and never want to paint another stormtrooper. If the minis were the same size I could update my collection with new sculpts when ready, but as of now I'm very unsure. I imagine I will play a bit, but use IA minis where possible.
  5. Back in the day when you could spend multiple evade tokens on one shot I used to love flying Laetin Ashera (the scyck pilot no-one uses). He was a proper little troll ship if he was my last ship. Sometimes I ended up with 3 or 4 evade tokens on him!
  6. I was pretty shocked to read this in another thread: "Other, more known and respected members of the community have raised these concerns in the past (MajorJuggler, Sozin, the Carolina Krayts podcast, as well as others)" Since when have the Krayts been respected? ?
  7. This guy's tokens are amazing: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/X-Wing-Miniatures-compatible-acrylic-double-sided-ID-tokens-x-12-5-8-white-/282569580380?hash=item41ca759f5c:g:6e4AAOSw3xJXpTA-
  8. I'm very surprised to see the attack shuttle with a higher rank than the ghost. What are these lists that are running shuttles on their own?
  9. That answers the questions about targeting synchroniser then. Spending a target lock to reroll dice is a game effect.
  10. How ageist! Older people can be Jedi too!
  11. That was absolutely brilliant. It was so exciting to see old characters back, the nods to Rebels, Vader being Vader, X Wings being amazing. The new characters were interesting and I hope that we see some comics giving some back story for some of them. My only gripe was the start, as I felt it was missing a key element of Star Wars, but it didn't really spoil the movie for me.
  12. Shadowcaster for me. It is too bright and smooth for me
  13. What about an e-wing title that allows you to shoot using the firing arc of another e-wing on the board, but means you can't fire twice?
  14. I would like to see a new type of upgrade: squadron upgrades. These would apply to all the ships of that type in your list, meaning that generics would benefit more as you could fit more in. Eg Rogue Squadron (T65 X Wing only) : When attacking, if the target ship has previously been attacked by at least one Rogue Squadron ship this round, roll one extra red die. Red Squadron (T65 X Wing only): Red squadron X Wings may fire proton torpedoes without spending their target lock. I haven't worked out points costs to balance these, but something like this could reinvigorate some of the less popular ships.

    Playmat question

    Are FFG planning on reprinting the star field mat? They are nearly impossible to find in the UK, and the ones available are so expensive.
  16. Woohoo! Second place in the card competition! Great cast as ever boys, thank you.
  17. I've had a lot of fun with Laetin Ashera with mangler and stealth device. It usually takes a lot to take him down (although he was one-shotted at Yavin). I've won 2 tournaments with him, and in one he never even lost a shield. There are definitely more efficient builds for your 27 points, but it is fun to fly!
  18. There's that moment when it suddenly clicks that the expected release date is always 6 months earlier than the actual release date. New player "q3, that could be September!" Older/ more jaded player "q3? That means March next year."
  19. I watched Rebels with my 8 year old son, and he loved it. His excitement was infectious and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it with him and remembering why I first fell in love with the films. Not all the episodes are great, but if it hooks another generation (who might be a little too young to watch the new films in the cinema) then it's all good with me. I can't wait until X wings show up though!
  20. Look at the bottom left pair of upgrade cards on the Arc 170 spread - is that a mod to give a barrel roll?
  21. The hammer idea won't work. They physically don't fit together. I'll try sanding. Thanks for the advice.
  22. Has anyone else found that the little black bits that go in the middle of the dials don't fit together properly? For both of mine in the pack the female part is too shallow so the clip sticks out 2-3mm from the dial. I'm not sure if the dial will hold together if I start trimming bits and I don't want to glue them in case I want to take the dials apart for any reason.
  23. The distributor in the UK had told stores that Imperial Veterans would be released with wave 8.
  24. The other tournaments are £8 per day so I assume the £16 covers both days. Anyway, I've got my ticket!
