    Having looked at it you don't even need a moderately talented commission painter. Personally I'd be comfortable replicating that and I am far from moderately talented.

    If you own 6 Aggressors you've earned it.

    If they remember the ship exists, they might have been keeping 6 with ion turrets off the table.  Which makes sense, honestly.  That does not sound super fun to fly against.

    Are you referring to hyperspace legal or the fact that not all 1.0 pilots have been converted?  I'm not holding my breath for Fel's Wrath.

    The unfortunate truth is I played maybe two games with my CR-90 and one with my Raider.  None with my C-Roc.  The fact that they aren't supported (yet?) in 2nd Ed. doesn't really affect their playtime much...  
    I do want to see some Epic support sooner rather than later but I'm not super optimistic.  I don't think it's very high on their priority list and the pace of releases doesn't leave much time for development of Epic.  Hope they can get it right when it happens though.

    no im talking about the $400 of ships FFG sold to many of us under the claim they were part of the game:  the GR75, CR90, I.A.C., Raider, and C.R.O.C.

    This is pretty much it from what I remember lurking here. Conversion kits so far have clearly filled this need. My suspicion so far is that FFG isn't quite sure how they intend to do this going forward so they are sticking with pure re-releases of pilots from conversion kits. That just leaves new generic upgrades as a sticking point.
    My hope is once they decide on a method, we will start seeing new pilots for ships like the A-wing, TIE Interceptor, and B-wing, as well as generic cards the various factions need.
    I could see instead something similar to Correllian Campaign instead of card packs. Basically products that support scenarios/campaigns (maybe even single player) that include the cards as a side bonus. It would still force people to buy things they may not want for upgrades, but they would keep their promise in not forcing people to buy ships they already have. As a bonus they would get the scenario and campaign stuff to those itching for it (I know I would probably buy it).

    It's probably good that we are not getting new content with the re-released ships but I hope they figure out a way to put out new content for  the rereleased ships.  Not sure how they will do that though.
    If they had some new fancy crew included in the Falcon reprint, I would get seriously grumpy.  I don't need another Falcon model.  The B-wing though?  I'm down for two of those.  (Actually sold 2 of my custom painted B-wings so need two more anywho.)

    The designers giving the 2400 a built-in four dice primary was the worst possible news for Dash fans.  It makes the ship almost impossible to price correctly.  I expect the final price point will be lower than where it sits now but not by a whole lot.

    I'd be one not to look to for sympathy. I never enjoyed flying against that thing. It was easy mode for the player playing it. Eventually I didn't hate flying against it but I can't say it breaks my heart I haven't seen it since 2nd Ed started.

    The addition of initiative based scaling is one of the most exciting parts of the points adjustments to me.  I hope Advanced Sensors gets scaled pricing eventually.  It definitely deserves it.  Although, as a huge B-wing fan, I'm probably not impartial here.
    Overall, I'm just super hyped by the points adjustments overall.

    gamblertuba reacted to Ryfterek in Leaked Guardians of the Republic Article AKA "In Defense of Peace" (article title)   
    Alright, here we go! 
    Compilation of what we got to know from the recent Polish article about the Guardians of the Republic Expansion Pack and the discussion following its release on our FB group. We've got the national distributor's spokesman there, so any explanations that are given there are more-or-less confirmed. 
     
    Rules: Let's begin with what we've got to know about the purple actions because it will sure come handy reading about the spoiled pilot cards. A purple action is a normal, activation phase action, coming with the additional tax of spending a Force Token () to perform it. It is not a bonus, additional action. A bummer, I know but we ought to think about it this way - if it wasn't purple, it wouldn't be there at all, so it's better than nothing. Moving on, in the order of being shown in the article:
       Delta-7 Aethersprite:  

    (5) Obi-Wan Kenobi - Guardian of the Republic When a friendly ship at range 0-2 spends a focus token, you may spend 1 . If you do, that ship gains 1 focus token.
     

    (5) Plo Koon - Peaceful Mentor At the beginning of the engagement phase, you may spend 1  and choose another friendly ship at range 0-2. If you do, you may transfer 1 of your green tokens to the chosen ship or you may transfer 1 orange token from the chosen ship to you.
       

    (4) Saesee Tiin - Prophetic Pilot When a friendly ship at range 0-2 reveals its dial, you may spend 1 . If you do, you may set that ship's dial to another manoeuvre of the same speed and difficulty.
     

    (4) Mace Windu - Motherf*cker / Harsh Traditionalist After you fully execute a red manoeuvre, recover 1 . Private commentary: If the wording without "may" as it is in the PL version will stick, it should impact discussions such as this one about Oberos' Ability. The inability of actually regaining the force token should not prevent Mace Windu from performing a red manoeuvre, so it should be possible to resolve an effect even if recovery of a charge cannot really be executed.

    Disclaimer: I will have to be creative with the translation of the names of these pilots, so please take them with a grain of salt.  Found the names in the original image filenames, yay!  

    (4) "Kickback" - Blue Four After you perform  action, you may perform a red  action. Private commentary: Yes, this is literally a linked action as a pilot ability, move along.
     

    (5) "Odd Ball" - CC-2237 After you fully execute a red manoeuvre or execute a red action, if there is an enemy ship in your , you may gain a lock on it. 
     

    (3) "Swoop" - Blue Six When a friendly small or medium ship fully executes a speed 3 - 4 manoeuvre, if it's at range 0-1, it may perform a red  action.
     

    (3) "Axe" - Blue Two  After you defend or perform an attack, you may choose a friendly ship at range 1 - 2 in your <Left Side Arc> or <Right Side Arc>. If you do, transfer 1 green token to that ship.  Private commentary: The 1:1 translation results in not actually specifying where from to transfer the token, but RAI is clear that it's this pilot's token. Still, looking forward to the RAW discussion if it goes like this in the English version of the card. 
     

    (2) "Tucker" - Blue Five  When a friedly ship at range 1 - 2 performs an attack against an enemy ship in your , you may perform a  action.  Private commentary: My personal favourite of these, generates a simple, efficient and useful action economy and should work well for a filler ship.  And that's it! No upgrade cards spoiled in the article that we wouldn't have seen before somewhere in English. Hope it comes useful to you but I guess the English article may drop any time now.

    I don't think Advanced Sensors should ever be cheaper than 8 points.  Unblockable actions should be a premium.  I would raise the price on high initiative more then lower it for the other end.
