  1. If this is your first time using the Plastic Glue and or Modeling in general; I’d suggest clipping pieces of the Battle Droid sprue and practice glueing the scrap pieces together before actually assembling your Droids. Here’s why: Switching to plastic glue is a bit of a learning curve, or it was for me. I’ve always used super glue and now I only use super glue gel. When assembling my Bolt Action army I couldn’t get Super Glue to work that well and switch to plastic glue as suggested by Warlord Games for their models. The plastic glue itself flows extremely well almost like water. I’m not sure if I used Testors or Tamiya. It’s hard to find in rural Texas, I found it at Hobby Lobby on occasion but mostly had to order it online. I found it easier to apply a small dab of glue on a piece of glass then either use a toothpick , exacto blade, or paper clip to apply the glue to the pieces I was bonding together. Applying the glue directly to the Model from the applicator/bottle usually ended in excessive glue on the model pieces. Like others stated Plastic Glue is like a weld rather than the piece being just “stuck” together.
  2. The more units the merrier. I would think more on the amphibious side rather that full blown under water battles.
  3. I like the idea of captured vehicles. I think using rules similar to Bolt Action, they can not be repaired and there’s an increased cost. They could easily include and upgrade card example for the AT-ST: “Rebels Only” at X cost and “No Upgrades can be attached to this vehicle besides this one”. Text about alignment to the new army. Other units I’d like to see: -Imperial Probe Droids as a specialist or Single Unit - Republic Commandos - Random Creature Encounter scenarios for Rancor, Wampa, Gundark, Mynocks or Sand People/Tusken Raiders similar to the Downed AT-ST or Bunker.
  4. Missions would be a great way to add the AT-AT to the game. They could make it similar to the bunker and even have removable sides. OR do a downed version as scatter terrain.
  5. http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=/TAC/tacOrder662marineFR.jpg There’s a link for the Galactic Trooper. I have one or two somewhere.
  6. For sure! May do this with the Phase II before I do a 501st squad. There were a few purple troopers for Mace. I think they did an Airborne and Galactic Marine.
  7. A Generic Jedi Squad could work like the new upgrade expansions, by themselves or a squad of 4 Jedi. I imagine they’ll be a Specialist Expansion. Really like the idea of Hondo be truly neutral.
  8. Durge was cool In the show but way more vicious in the comics. I’m sure what comic but he essentially drowned a Jedi or Clone in some Lava and his arms burnt off. He had a neat design. I think there one or two Wizards of the Coast minis of him.
  9. BOOM! Taun-Tauns on the loose! They look stellar!
  10. @WGNF911 are all your squad bases/rims a different color?
  11. I looked forward to seeing the completed Desert Scout Trooper unit. I feel your pain, it’s hard to not be canonical with Stormtroopers.

    Rebel Army

    First time I’ve seen Wookiees on a desert base, really makes them pop! Great color scheme and I like the cohesion. What color are the rims of your bases?
  13. If they make Mace Windu, I’ll do a squad of his 187th in purple. I’m most likely going to do 501st for Phase II. Phase one I’m going to stick with shinys aside from the Captains/Squad Leaders for each squad. I might do a personal “Guard” Squad for each General or Operative.
  14. I’m planning on doing what you guy described with my bases for each squad. Did you have an overall theme like forest, use rocks for one squad and the logs for another? Or are they completely unique for each squad mixing several themes? For my Specialist I based them on the FFG premium bases. For the new packs matching one to each squad would work unless you use them by themselves. Multiples it may need to be.
  15. Let’s hope so. I wouldn’t mind fielding an entire army of Fleet Troopers.
  16. Sell the other models or trade them off at the local store.
  17. These packs are awesome. These are really going to diversify armies on the battle field not just ascetically. A Theelin? How cool is that? This is the 1st time in miniature form and only the 2nd time this species has been in figure form. (crazed collector). Keep it up FFG!
  18. My FLGS overlooked it but she has it coming this week.
  19. Still have some minor details and highlights to add. Then figure out how i want to base them.
  20. Wow! Blown away. Can not wait for all these miniatures and the future of this game.
  21. I like your ideas: This could easily be explained with a new upgrade slot on all “Scum/Syndicate” cards. The Expansions could have only upgrade cards included in their box or even a miniature similar to heavy units to match the faction you want them include with. Or.... Specialist Scum Expansion that acts like the previous Specialist Expansion sets. Or.... A whole entire sub faction could work but like others have mentioned I’d like them sold as an “Army in a box”. Ewoks, Tuskens, Gungans, Nightsisters, Pirates or Hutts. Each “Army in a box” has operatives and special forces that can be fielded in the main factions but would be limited. Also include unique cards, vehicles /heavies and maybe objective terrain pieces. Pricing would be along the lines of a Core Set or cheaper.
  22. I could see Super Battle Droids as a corps unit. The Commando Droids from Clone Wars as a special forces. What about that weird tank from Revenge of the Sith that a wookie slaps an explosive on to? It had a center tread and giant eyes.
  23. Navy troopers would be cool.... May throw in an Imperial Engineer (as they were known in Battle Front II) /Death Star Gunner for the heavy weapon.
