    The game is not out of print, so you should be able to buy it at local gaming stores.
    It looks like the core box was just recently reprinted, according to the Upcoming page, so perhaps it has been scarce on shelves recently.  It's not gone forever, though!

    Honestly Ken, 
     
    Go watch Sorestro's videos (https://www.youtube.com/user/Sorastro). He does an amazing job of teaching technique while painting the actual figures. Plus his voice is really mellow and relaxed, Like a British or Aussie Bob Ross.
     
    Many people here on the forums who have never painted in their lives have decided to give painting minis a first go after watching Sorestro.

    So after looking at Sorastro's Videos and asking online here in the main IA forum, I decided to try my own hand at painting. I've not done painting in quite a few years but I did have some supplies left over from what I've done before. Here is a recap of what I've done so far, I don't have many pictures as I've been trying to work on the Stormtroopers and seem to have hit a small issue. I'm hoping to get it resolved.. I'm just not painting tonight as I'd like to fix this issue before I continue.
    So far after looking online here is what I decided to buy.
    Army Painter Mega Set 2
    Army Painter Grey Spray
    After getting in the paints I wanted to start painting as soon as possible, but weather around here has been quite cold, but I was lucky and was able to prime the figures Grey (Later I would regret this on some level) and then started painting.
    I started with Darth Vader and the Imperial Droids. I did something that I think was helpful and that was use Lock-tight Gel Glue to reinforce the three little legs (one of each set of three was already broken off).
    After putting a nice black down on these, I then did a dry brush on Vader and the Droids with a metalic from the army painter set (I'll get the actual name of the colors when I upload pictures in case someone wants to copy my colors).
    I think the Vaders and the Droids so far have been my favorite to do as well as the ones that have come out the best.
    Update: I've slowly started to get stuff finished to where even I am satisfied as well as my friend who's set I'm also doing. I've had some mistakes here and there, I've had to dip my own storm troopers twice as I would try something and it would not work out the way I thought and then I thought there was way to much paint on the minis.
    Here are some new pictures some are still in progress but I like the results.
    Or not as my iPad flicker doesn't like to give me the links, I'll post them here in a minute with the PC.

    No I don't intend on doing mirror matches, this is only for fun.  I may end up doing skirmish as much as anything else.
     
    So if I understand one each of the expansions is all that I need.
     
    That is great, I'll look at picking them up this weekend.

    The only duplication of Wave 1 purchases you would ever consider is the Rebel Troopers and Saboteurs, and only if you plan on playing with a Trooper or Saboteur heavy list.
     
    There is no reason for duplicate purchases for the campaign.

    Do you mean you won't need more than one?
    Not unless you're really into Skirmish and want to play two player match ups each with Han Solo etc.

    Actually he reminds me more of Barrett from Final Fantasy VII (except obviously without the machine gun hands).
     
    I wonder if Somos is one of the remaining clone troopers... then they really would be "twin" shadows.

    I had a hard time with the other post...so here is all the new set painted and ready to rock! Here is the whole crew, and I just realized I forgot the Probe Droids in all of this...A close up of the Heroes Vader and His guards. A friend of mine dubbed the guards "Demons". So I thought it would be pretty cool this time around to make some Ghosts to go with it.

    Maybe it was just me, or I got lucky or something. But the chingun for my Gen Weiss was much easier to put in then the AT-ST that came with the core set.

    That should be more helpful.
     
     
    Each booster and expansion does indeed come equipped with a Skirmish mission/map.  Just like the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker packs within the core set.

    I plan to order two of each.  Otherwise it won't fit into my current colour scheme that has elite and standard units differentiated.  I've not even tried Skirmish yet, the main reason to buy multiples.

    Ohh wait, also if they dont include them then what happens when I buy 5 troopers just as I did today and want to make a 4 trooper squad for 22 pts? I actually was pretty worried that they won't have the deployment cards and that would have ment I need to buy 4 core sets if I want to run a 4 trooper squad.

    Another point might be in a two player Skirmish you may both want a 'IG-88', 'Boba Fett' etc on your team.

    I figure the 10 minis are as follows:
    2 new heroes
    4 heavy stormtroopers (2 elite, 2 regular)
    4 tuskan Raiders (2 elite, 2 regular)

    Forget where I saw it, but someone posted printable PDFs of the skirmish maps already laid out. I could totally see a bunch of those coming in a tournament pack, or selling them for tournament use. In the scheme of mini games, its typically up to the tournament host to make sure they have terrain for the number of players they expect. Sometimes that means they get people to pitch in, sometimes that means they provide it on their own.

    What if you bought multiples of the packs for Skirmish and need extra deployment cards?
     
    What if in the future you buy a big box expansion and some select booster packs for Skirmish but not the core set and so need the deployment cards?
     
    What if you want separate storage for Skirmish and Campaign related stuff each with a duplicate deployment card?
     
    I see no harm in including the deployment cards for these fringe cases.
