    Hi Guys
     
    Seeing as we've lost the painting sub forum, the best way of keeping all the cool repaints together for reference is in one thread.  Otherwise you just lose them in a day.
     
    It worked before so lets go back to it.
     
    If you are a repainter please 'like' this and add on to it with your repaints, make it popular and show as 'busy' on the boards.
     
    Lets keep this nice and positive like the old sub forum did.
     
    Can I also suggest we limit this to FFG models and scratch builds to avoid any potential IP infringements.(it may be a good idea in that spirit to be careful about say an 'iron man' scheme xwing if FFG don't want 'mixing' or 'comingling' of IP)
     
    I'm away on holiday for a bit so won't have much net access but i'll kick start this off in a minute.
     
    cheers

    And the 'blaster cannon' give it the 360 firepower equiv to an xwing.
     
    its from weaponry is marginally worse than a Y wing.
     
    You cant fire them all at once... but if you could its only one red die less than that X and Y combo
     
    But then if its one guy with no crew you've got to co-oridnate that firepower... imagine trying to fly stright and on target to line up the 8 cannons (do they all fire at the same point or is one rear firing?) AND trying to lock your turret on to a ship.
     
    Its why the blaster cannon requires you to focus i imagine.  it assumes its one guy trying to handle a lot of systems.

    Because regardless of the 'lore' its role in the game is a support ship and its to discouage you using it as a 'wierd fighter' and instead use it to buff other ships.
     
    it might have eight laser cannons but lets say they are not very good ones... great at taking out unarmoured shiping but poor against shields and imperial armoured ships?
     
    Narrative wise it makes little sense but a support ship that has tons of firepower would end up in you wasting one or the other ability each game OR it would make it a must have ship OR way too exepnsive to have anything other than an xwing escorting it in 100 points.
     
    Its a cheap force multiplyer when used well.

    RE Matt, he's a nice bloke in person.  Sure some people don't like his rules but it always makes me sad when people get personel about friends and colleagues because they dont like an addition to a game of toy soldiers.
     
    Not saying anyone here is doing that but it would be lovely if we could refrain from doing so if anyone was considering it.
     
    My co blogger and best mate is Andy Hoare and he's a diamond geezer and you wouldnt believe some of the nasty stuff he has to put up with on forums.

    Well.
    Old versus new isn't it ?
    There is one thing the Original films have over the new ones.....
    The look, the feel that slightly grainy 35mm film stock picture quality, and more importantly story and plot over effects.
    Yes, Star Wars is loved for its special effects, ground breaking in its day.
    But, these days....They can do absolutely anything.
    And that can be the problem.
    Compare a New Hope to Force awakens.
    Beautiful Cinematography and Art direction on a tight budget and everyone winging it on A new Hope.
    Then you get Force Awakens.... Dazzling light show with odd plot New Hope rehash and a lot of over acting.
    "Sorry if I offended anyone !"
    New films in general seem to struggle where 30-40 years ago all you had was the story,the plot and relying on Actors to bring your vision to life.
    What Lucas did was....Superb.
    And inspiring to nearly every film maker that followed.
    Take Blade Runner.
    Still Amazing now, some of the best Cinematography ever put on Celluloid.
    Fantastic story and plot.
    And told in Harsh Future on a tight Budget relying on the special effects to carry it along.
    And no CGI in sight.
    Amongst all the razzle and dazzle, flash and bangs of the modern effects riddeld films.....The look and feel and story sometimes gets lost.
    A New Hope.
    That's the best of the Star Wars Films.
    When Luke stands there looking at the twin Suns, Hoping for something Better.
    And John Williams Music is carrying the scene along.....Doesn't it make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
    There is something Magical about that first Film.
    The one that started it all.
    Not many films these days can get even close to that.
    Rogue One was very Good.
    It had that "feel" of the original trilogy.
    Lucas got it right 77.
    Empire and Jedi are almost as good.
    They complement the best.
    A New Hope.
    All the best,
    Barry.
