  1. I find that the play area tends to get a bit cluttered if you go beyond 400 points with a lot more ship collisions and flying off the board as well as the game taking a lot longer. Don't see it happening....
  2. I just got a fedex tracking number for all my wave one stuff from CSI as well. Still no ETA but looks like it will be by the end of the week anyway!
  3. Why does it seem like the Tea Partiers always have to hijack everything no matter what your trying to talk about. Go post on fox news or Rush Limbaugh's web sight. Please keep Star wars for Star wars topics and fiction.
  4. There have been several threads over the last few months about Armada based campaigns. Everyone has some good ideas. I hope FFG will come out with a strategic based set of rules some day so you can incorporate x-wing and armada.
  5. I think Howlrunner is worth more than 2 TIE squadrons. Adding the extra dice is awesome and having scatter puts her over the top IMHO.
  6. I'm just getting one of each for now until we know point totals and how they will fit into a 400 point build.
  7. My condolences deathseed. My wife and I have three cats. Sucks when one dies.
  8. As most of us were expecting wave 1 the first week in May this is really only a two or three week delay. I'm sure the game will survive just fine. That being said I too have gotten tired of using the same three ships for the 30+ games I've played. I can't wait to add wave 1 as it's really going to change things up a great deal.
  9. Actually I think the neb b is the best ship in the core game. I love the empire but I'm not a big fan of either victory. They are slow and all the firepower is stacked on the forward arc. There way too easy to flank and two rebel ships ganging up on a vic can take it out more often than not.
  10. I do think the ISD will be speed 3 based on the leaked picks. That fits the fluff though and the fact its outgunned be the Mon Cal Cruiser, at least on the sides. The Mon Cal will probably be speed 2 which would also fit the fluff.
  11. We don't know for sure the ISD is under 100 points based on a very blurry picture. Until a better preview is released we simply won't know.
  12. I'm still thinking we will get an announcement at the end of the week or next...
  13. I think the AF is a love or hate looking ship. I think it looks really cool myself and as far as how it will perform in the game its clearly going to be awesome.
  14. I also think its very important to underbid, at least with the Imperial side. It massively sucks as the second player when your an Imperial as your already outnumbered and the rebels can effectively go with a ship twice before you can even get a shot off. At least If you win initiative you can eliminate that possibility.
  15. He had mentioned on another post a couple of days ago that it was still looking to be the last week of April or the first week of May. I would think April 29th or May 6th.
  16. that will be fantastic! Most people have been thinking September at the earliest so even with a few weeks delay from that we would be looking at late July or early August, and as Enqu has been 100% accurate so far I see no reason not trust this information.
  17. I would say its def a SSD. A normal ISD looks much different from the back.
  18. No I really don't think so... The first Order is probably the remains of the Empire. I'm sure through years of chaos after Endor they emerged as the single largest power in the galaxy. The rebellion morphed into the resistance which tells me even after Endor the rebellion could never fully stamp out the Empire. I bet when the force awakens starts the First Order has the upper hand, at least for now... guess we will know in 7 months.
  19. That wasn't Luke's lightsaber. looks just like Vaders...
  20. While I certainly think the OT is the best Star Wars I've never hated the prequels like so many people seem too. I especially enjoyed episode III and think it was at least getting close to the quality of the OT. That being said I have high hopes that 7-9 will at least equal the overall quality of the OT. I guess we will know in about 7 months.
  21. Major your analogy is flawed. First of all these models are manufactured on a mass scale, so there are literally tens of thousands going through factories in China being painted by a laborer making 25 cents an hour. If I had hired a contractor who was specifically working on my house and they left work undone then of course I would call them on it and make them return to fix it. I've never seen a product that is mass produced that I would say was perfect, its just not possible. We all need to have a realistic expectation of what to expect and not a 100% perfect product. We would all be paying $300 for a core set if we want that kind of quality.
  22. A wash is a one minute fix. To construct a shield generator is not possible for most people.
  23. This is a great idea. They could come out with all kinds of mission based expansions.
