  1. It looks like the thread "Immediately" has taken over the topic, however, yes since there is nothing in the rules that clearly defines what "immediately" is, it should be ignored until an FAQ gives it meaning and not left to each individual to interpret.
  2. Immediately wasn't intended to make one effect resolve prior to another in the same situation, The FAQ states that existing effects are resolved in the order determined by player or initiative. Immediately in the case of the Gunner is simply to keep the ship which is performing the attack from adding/playing another non-triggered effect before the attack is resolved. It may not even have anything to do with the current cards, but could instead be worded this way to eleviate conflict with cards that are being tested now for release in future expansions. This is my determination based on the rules, FAQ and keeping it simple. I think this issue is WAY over thought and is a non-issue.

    This is right up the alley with Expose, which I think is a great card but have a hard time finding it a home in my builds.
  4. When I purchased my second Firespray I compared what was available and chose the one with the best paint job. Not all minis are made equal but fortunately for my experience the level of quality control has been good. However, the Lambda-class Shuttle looks prety aweful. I don't like to risk melting plastic by stripping for a repaint, but this ship looks like it was painted with white-wash using a barn painting brush. I plan on getting a second one and am almost certain to use an airbrush to repaint one. The mini it's self though is just plain incredible. Thank you Jason Beaudoin and FF for all the hard work you do.

  6. My latest squadron: Kath Scarlet (Engine Upgrade, Heavy Laser Cannon, Gunner, Marksmanship) Turr Phennir (Push the Limit) Night Beast It's fun and lost of maneuverability. I don't think it's as powerful as the Millennium Falcon builds, but is more of a finesse build.
  7. I surf YouTube for vids on X-Wing.

Sqaud leader or lando perhaps? the problem is of course is that for 3pts you can get something better eh? Exactly, for example take push the limit, so you can focus and Target Lock, far exceeding the results of marksmanship for the same cost. In fact it is even inferior to plain Focus since this at least can be used defensively. I think this upgrade is useless, or at least 2 points overcosted! In the case of Scarlet it may not though since those crits do matter to her.
  9. Picasso said: Some combos I've found; firespray with heavy canon marksmanship and ggunner To be sure, Marksmanship applies after Heavy Laser Cannon, since HLC does say immediately?
  10. I don't use all of your well thought out training agendas but I do something similar on Vassal. I set up a board per tournament rules and then maneuver two squadrons around each other. I like your navigational points and practice targets at various ranges. Thank you for sharing and great pics!
  11. rowdyoctopus said: Its this and Heroclix for me. Heroclix has been a non-stop fire hose of releases for about a year and a half now. I could use a slow paced game as far as expansions. Its funny, because I know it is slow paced, I am spending a lot now and justifying it by saying once I have this I will be set for a few months. I'm wondering how long I can keep using that justification before I catch on to myself, haha. I've actually stopped Heroclix since Galactic Guardians. NECA/Wizkids took a good game with a solid player base and did what they usually do, try to squeeze every penny out of the market (meaning us) they can. I liked that HClix came out with three releases a year with a couple team releases in the mix. It was easy to afford and allowed for a lot of enjoyment of each release before the next one hit the shelves. Even though there has been some cool things like vehicles thrown into the mix now, there is just too many price exploits like single figures instead of five figure boosters. That rant being said, I love Fantasy Flight for it's ability to give us games we can enjoy with out cleaning out my weekly pay check. X-Wing has definitely taken the tops spot for my table-top gaming fun now and I hope to enjoy it for years to come.

    Using Han Solo

    My mistake against a match with Vorpal was not focusing on the x-wings one at a time and some split attacks allowed him the time he needed to shred my squadron. Well, one of my mistakes any way :-)
  13. Can "Dutch" Vander give a target lock to any (friendly) ship, even one that does not have target lock in it's action bar? I don't see anything that contradicts it but wanted to toss it out to the community for verification.

    Here is what I use. http://www.goldenpaints.com/ Golden Paints is a locally owned and operated company here in the U.S.A. that makes some of the highest (if not the highest) acrylic paints in the world. Their quality of ingredients and high pigment content of paint makes for a product which will last for a lifetime (end plug). This page http://www.goldenpaints.com/products/color/index.php shows you the mediums you can get (air brush, fluid, heavy body) to meet your needs. From the main page you can also explore the other products like textured pastes you can use on bases or other surfaces. They do have 1 oz bottles of paint and larger. At least this gives you another option.
  15. haslo said: They guys who actually built the forums seem to be Edge Studio, which appears to be associated with Edge Entertainment, which in turn somehow appears to be the French and Spanish distributor of FFG products. They're definitely Spanish and not French, too, because the file and path names for all functionality are in spanish (like "edge_atencion.asp" and "edge_contacto.asp"). So I guess if you want the horrible and sluggish forum functionality improved, you'd have to ask those guys. My guess, preferrably in Spanish. I didn't see this much enlightenment coming from my question but thank you for the information. I thought all the slow load times were due to my connection speed. At least the X-Wing product isn't having the problems this web site is!
