    Your Nexu looks amazing.
     
    For basing and group distinction I paint my bases a common color like Red, Blue or Green, I mix a little runefang steel in to give it a metallic look. Then I sleeve my cards with FFG yellow sleeves then again with ultrapros of the corresponding color.
     
    They end up looking like this (if you zoom in on the imperials you can see the coloring.

    That's a really clever way of differentiating your groups without it looking tacky, KennedyHawk. I think I'll have to try something like that when I get around to painting and playing more skirmish.

    Thanks Muz333, Will defiantly consider Sorastro's basing method.
     
    Day 2 in the Big Deathstar House, and I have finished the Nexu and had fun with Gloss and Matt varnish (though not that noticeable in the following pictures. Next up is a couple more stormtroopers and a Droid.
     
    Day 3 was a bust as was out playing Warhammer 40K Conquest.

    To be fair to the OP, when the link was posted, it did link to painted IA minis. I'm not sure what happened.

    Good point, it's not like every skirmish game is going to be Rebel vs Imperial.

    Muz333 reacted to KennedyHawk2 in New tiles required for new ally pack skirmish maps?   
    My experience with FFG is it will be a mix of core set and Twin Shadows "deluxe expansion" tiles. Looking at LOTR LCG as a basis they have a deluxe with 2-3 encounter sets in it. Then each time a pack comes out before the next deluxe the stories in the pack contain one new encounter set and then use sets from the last deluxe and sometime a core.
     So I would expect the Droids and Boba to have skirmish maps showing off the new tiles with the Core tiles to flesh it out.
      If we see Leia and Dash next I'd expect their skirmish maps to use tiles from the next deluxe and core, but I doubt Skirmish maps will ever use tiles from two different deluxe expansions.

    My bet is that they are mainly 'rooms' and you'll reuse the connectors, etc.

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

    1) Multiple Packs wouldn't work for the uniques right?   IG-88, General Weiss?  Han Solo?   I can't recall exactly, but I'm pretty sure you can't include 2 Han Solos in a build.  But for the generics... ok I get it.   Makes complete sense if you buy 3 expansions, you'd still only have the base card so OBVIOUSLY you'd need more.    Got it.  Good point. 
    2) Any Big Box expansion would have to include the stuff from the Core Set otherwise I don't think you'd be elligible to play in a tournament - IE you'd need all the tiles to build a skirmish map for example.  But maybe for casual play I suppose.
    3) I don't think the separate storage case holds water - as you would need a whole separate core game - since you can't get extra Stormtroopers, Vader, Luke, The Core Allies, etc anywhere else. 
     
     
    Good examples though.  I totally hadn't considered the obvious case of buying 2 or even 3 sets of rebel troopers, for example.  
     
     
     I suppose I was just hoping for an upgraded or advanced version of the deployment card.  Or at least an alternate IG-88 or something compared to what came in the campaign.   Like "IG-88 : Samurai Confirguation" as a skirmish option.

    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.

    find the image you want to include and copy the URL to the image. (Either in the address bar of your browser if the image is the only thing on the page, or simply right click on the image and select Copy Image URL or Source or whatever your browser says.)
     
    Then in your post editor here click on the little square green button sort of under the Smiley face. If you hover it says 'Image.' Paste the URL into the prompt that pops up and click OK. 
     
    Voila.

    From the preview the Tusken has the keyword Habitat: Desert.
     
    I wonder if they can only be included in desert missions for the campaign as an open group?
     
     
    I would agree but wasn't there a confirmed rumor that Royal Guard Champion used to be Carnor Jax before someone (assuming Disney) botched it and made it a generic nameless royal guard champion?

    That would theoretically work except that you use tokens for imperials and cards for heroes. There are only 4 cards of each condition, 1 for each hero. Honestly considering the various cards that can boost a figure's health, even the health token areas aren't 100% the best bet. I think I'll just have 2 empty areas, 1 labeled health and 1 labeled condition tokens. Then you can still track individual stats for each figure and aren't tied down to certain health values and I won't have to worry about future conditions.
     
    Also Sorastro, just by looking at the picture of Vader... "I'm still not sure I'm 100% happy with him"... you had better be 99.9% happy with him because DAYUM!!
     
    Edit: Watched the video and before it I had no desire to change the bases and now I'm curious how much a set of those tech bases are in $$... Thanks I think?

    That sounds reasonable.

    I think the hardest part of a Hoth expansion is the (almost literal) elephant in the room - AT-ATs!
     
    An Endor expansion could be possible too.
    Ewoks, Scout troopers, Rebel Commandos...
     
    But, my number one guess?
    Cloud City.
    Leia and Lando as allies, Dengar and Bossk as scum (maybe some uggnaughts), and some Imperial Moff as the villain. The campaign? Retake Bespin after Lando & Co leave, possibly happening in parts simultaneously with the movie.

    The Luke and Vader packs in the core set were a smart way of advertising the line of figure packs. they helped people understand what they could expect when they bought figure packs.
     
    their inclusion as tokens feels intentional, not a situation of last minute changes.

    I'm hoping they will eventually release a trooper pack with say a group of Strom Troopers, Heavy Storm Troopers and Snow Troopers.
     
    I suspect the Tusken Raiders will also be popular fodder for the Scum teams in skirmish.
