    Battalia got a reaction from Sekac in Evade Dice, They have favourites!   
    It is also somewhat of a memory trick. If you roll great, you will attribute it to good strategy and or "normal" rolling. So you move on happily and forget about that roll 5 minutes later. But if you roll HORRIBLY you will remember it for many a sleepless night. Its like they say, it takes 10 good experiences to nullify 1 bad one. 
     
    I am not immune to this phenomenon. I still remember the day wedge was shot at 3 range through an asteroid and rolled blanks on all 4 dice to take the hit-hit-crit (console fire). There was a very angry press of the http://nooooooooooooooo.com/ button that day.

    Don't forget where you live. Shipping costs can make or break a trade as well

    Just going to put this out there but the rulebook for warhammer 40k is $90. if FFG was money hungry, they could easily make players pay for the rules to play above the core set as well.

    Thankfully it was only the cardboard one from the starter kit. But have no fear, seeing as how my fiancee was one of said players, I have a perfectly justifiable excuse when my new one comes in from Cog O Two... With the extra tokens... And movement templates... and maybe one or two other goodies... Yea okay im still going to be in the dog house, but it will be worth it!

    Because you were showing 2 friends how to play and they were horsing around and tried using the range ruler as a poking stick which the other player tried to swat in defense snapping it in two. I believe my face looked something like this:

    Check out the artwork for Carnor Jax and I think you'll find it's probably your bog standard TIE fighter gray colour where it's not red. White makes too much of a contrast with the red, where the pale gray is just that little bit more subdued.

    Really the only way a star destroyer would work is if they released a version of the game where a corvette was the size of our current X-Wings and called a small ship. And honestly, I wouldn't be too opposed to playing it. I myself enjoy the massive ship on massive ship action, and could be caught surfing through star trek episodes looking for ones with said action involved just to see it... 
     
    Would probably be much less about maneuvers and more about formation and tactics, but that could be fun too. However for even epic play, a star destroyer is just too big.

    I came from a gunpla background, so Im using mr colour instead of the citadel paints you guys are familiar with.

    For the body, I used Mr Color 114 - RLM23 Red. The white highlights I initially wanted to use flat off-white, but I used flat white + wash instead because of a small mixup and I'm too lazy to repaint it.

    Cockpit I simply left unpainted and reused the FFG original painted one.

    i was kind of surprised not to see a "Whistler" upgrade card... Oh well, guess I'll just have to wait until it comes with his X-wing pilot card 
     
    On a more related note, I do like the idea of the E-Wing, but I'm pretty worried that the named pilots will be epic play only. The E-Wing may be great, but I don't think it's 50 points of great especially to an already point heavy rebel army.
