  1. Get a bandsaw and cut them in half, that is the best way to see if someone has tampered with them internally. There are also mentions of "bucket tests" but they are mainly for D6s I think.
  2. You like the wave but think the two biggest game-changing ships in the Wave are DOA and too late? You must be liking the Inquisitor's TIE a heck of a lot more than me! Though I am loving the G-1A a lot also.

    Title cards?

    There is the title that allows for 2 EPTs on the A-Wing as well.
  4. I was thinking about this the other day and while I have only watched the movie once I recall Finn (that Traitor!) firing at a target ahead of the Tie. Sure he was facing backwards but I recall the Target being in front of the tie when it fired it's payload, along with multiple options for shooting that Poe quickly explains. I would probably expect that the end result being that a TIE/SF is just a Crew Slot on the TIE/FO body, maybe a missile slot as well? But no rear firing arc. Allows for Gunner (effectively what Finn was in that scene) and adds some utility to Ties that they don't currently have.
  5. If you don't mind a little bit of chunk, I got this one for X-Wing and Infinity and it works pretty darn well. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Quality-Laser-Edge-Level-Straight-Line-Guide-Leveler-Horizontal-Measure-Tool-/121514658508?hash=item1c4ad68acc
  6. Oh man, I had forgotten all about those dinosaur transformers. Awesome. Transformers box art was always awesome as anything, and always in space. Where is the box art now? Where is my epic battle scenes that demand tha Metal and head banging?Oh, I guess FFG found it. I just noticed that the green guy has a cement truck for a leg. I hope you don't find that image...Devastating! <spoiler> </spoiler>
  7. My god, the amount of (in my opinion unwarranted) butt-hurt in one post is staggering. Time to see if I remember how to use the Ignore feature in this forum.
  8. I wouldn't object to a Cad Bane card here or there...
  9. Harder to sufficiently bonk the guy/gal shooting you with a laser shield, laser swords totally where it is at.
  10. Well, I disagree.It's not a police badge. This is a universe where a type of magic exists. And these objects are specific to those who use that magic. Obviously the objects would have some connection to that magic. I do obviously agree that Jedi being portrayed as an order of peaceful monks, while their symbol is a weapon is contradictory. So is them serving as general in the galactic army, etc. But, at the end of the day, these are still action movies. So their philosophical wizards also have to be warriors. Not really seeing that, it is definitely tied the the mysticsm of the Jedi but they are not the only ones who can use it, but they are the only ones who can use it well. Get a regular pleb to swing it around and you are going to chop a lot of limbs off, awesome. But it is implied,possibly flat out said, that you need Jedi reflexes/precog to be able to deflect the blaster bolts or to last long in a lightsaber vs lightsaber fight. I do see it a great learning experience for the Jedi though, if you give them a saber they are going to be chuffed and over excited. Make them go through perilous trials and exacting tribulations to make their own, well there is a far greater lesson to be learned there. Do you teach the youngling about responsibility and the importance of care of their weapon...or do you give them a bunch of pixie sticks and a pistol?
  11. I was actually impressed with the recent eps (watched the clone double ep and the introduction to the Inquisitors) I like having the reveal to Ezra the fall out of Order 66 and having Rex come in at the end, though Wolf's treachery was a little easily forgiven in my eyes. Letting Zeb have a moment was nice, shows that the muscle doesn't have to be a goon all the time. I loved the "I don't want to die like this, I am the last of my kind." complaint when he was stuck in the vent.

    Pilot Cards

    I really like the card, and concept interests me but I am not getting into it entirely. I think it might be my feeling that certain pilots fly certain ships better. Take the beloved Han, he is 9 in the Falcon, a ship he has customised and flown countless times. I would have no problem thinking he would only be a PS 5 or 6 in a Lambda Shuttle due to the lack of experience and differences from his normal ride. Still close to Top of the Class but not Best in the 'Verse like when he is in his pancake. Same with Luke trying to fly the MF. I can imagine him crunching multiple docking bays and cursing that it doesn't handle like his X-Wing.
  13. I started for the Scum when they were announced...but my friend didn't tell me how long the FFG ship takes so I got deep into Rebs to practice in the mean time. So yeah; 1) Scum 2) Rebs
  14. It could be to use extra munitions in the torp slot? Adds value to the Mines and Bombs.
  15. What madness is this? Ran a K-Wing Warden at a recent event, Extra munitioned Proximity and Cluster mines and Advance SLAM and Bombadier. Not going to lie, it was a hefty build. The amount of things a low PS pilot can hurt/kill with an action is amazing. The Highlight was definitely taking out a cloaked PS 9 Phantom with a beautiful 2-Turn SLAM 2-Turn Mine Drop, hit it with two of the three templates and the Phantom went BOOM! This is definitely no something I would expect every time, but I am still loving the pants off of Clusters.
  16. ..uuuh, how are Comms Relay's providing the double shield? Am I missing something obvious?
  17. Does this satisfy your need to be quoted? What is the hang up you have with post numbers? The number of posts has very little to do with if what the post says is accurate or relevant? Hell Joe Boss whatever has probably got about 100 posts of him just putting in his "Bad Post/Thread" little images but that doesn't make him automatically more credible than someone who has less than 100 posts but makes a good point. As far as I can see and recall, there wasn't this much hoo-haa over the S-Loop when it came out, just some excitement that the Starviper and Brobots got a sweet new move that shook things up. I personally see this as the same sort of maneuver, but ending in a different facing. I am more than willing to accept the side facing allow half a barrel-roll's worth of movement makes it a tiny bit easier if you are trying to skirt around a ship/obstacle but not to the level of dislike I am getting from your posts. Like where you end your post with all caps "STUPID", oh hang on, you prefer to be quoted... In your full post, oh better quote that if I am going to make an honest go on that. Here, you mention that there are too many options to block someone. But they have more or less the same amount of maneuvers that other ships have so that is more or less the same, with the exception of 2 that give you a couple of mm of wiggle room should you wish it. At the cost of a stress...which probably makes you a little more predictable in that following turn. In my opinion blocking shouldn't just be a case of "Oh, s/he is going to be here, how do I get a ship there?" but more of a case of "S/He is probably going to be going here, how do I make that work for me and not them, while covering my butt if they actually end up taking that other likely option instead. I don't think they will take that option, so I will leave it uncovered to focus down on this angle." T-Rolls add a complexity to the game which I am totally behind. I just cannot get my head around why you dislike it so much. And honestly after your continued posts about it, I don't think you can explain your position any better than you already have so I am unlikely to be able to have my mind changed. I am happy to agree to disagree on this and call it quits.
  18. Yeah, I don't understand Blail's objection to the T-Roll, well at least not the strength he voices it with. I am looking forward to having more ships with it (hopefully a scummer here and there) as it gives another option, and I also like the combination of K-Turn and S-Loop or T-Roll on the same dial. It gives a couple of options and makes people think about the options. Think how predictable the Defender is once it gets in a furball, always flipping back and forth on their White K-Turns, now you need to out think your opponent with a T-70 in if they are going to K-Turn OR T-Roll and how am you going to react (something other than shouting "suck my turret" and not caring about positioning)
  19. Dollars to donuts, it is an expression to say "I really believe this will happen". Pretty much it is "I will give you X dollars if it doesn't happen but you have to give me x donuts if it does." sort of wager.
  20. Wha? I agree that K-Wings are great Mine-Layers and have gotten me into actually using Bombs and Mines but when you set up that great mine drop you needed to sabotage that Phantom/etc but left yourself well out of the way for everything else why wouldn't you want a nice TLT shot afterwards to add insult to injury?
  21. Ahh groovy, I will still make my lunch time trip to investigate Adelaide's Zing, just in case.
  22. Nothing is Adelaide Target as well. Looks like it will be a later purchase.
  23. "Hey you liked the new star wars movie right?" "..yeah" "Why don't you come play this game with me, you can chose to be X-wing dude or if you prefer you can fly some of those sweet TIE fighters" "...ok, who are you by the way? Are you asking this of all the people who are leaving the cinema?"
