    Fluff Bunny Complaint: Snowtroopers/Eweb

    you realise that the eweb engineer is just a scout trooper right? and so effectively its still the same problem, also, I prefer to think of snow troopers as assault troopers, they just happened to be deployed in a snowy environment in the film. it helps me deal with the fluff bunny niggle.

    Is anyone concerned about generic officers?

    ah right, I'm with you on that one!

    Is anyone concerned about generic officers?

    Sorry, yes, I was being sarcastic. as people have said that they cannot stand to see named characters etc which of course is ridiculous in my view. surely thats not true. Every character in an RPG has a name.... just not Luke, Leia, Han or Daddy Dark Helmet

    If you pick a tight fitting uniform then of course the curves will be shown off... The males wear the same style of tight fitting uniform.

    because history has taught us that war doesn't have named heroes

    Fleet Troopers - how have they fared for you?

    They work out great for me right up until they get shot at. I would not recommend anymore than 2 squads. they work best with rapid reinforcement missions where they can get in close for free and get the first shots off at priority targets, veers or Leia for example.

    Transporting Legion

    Battlefoam are doing a 25% off sale on 11th may! buy buy buy. tis good stuff
  10. I feel like people may not be aware of all the wider material surrounding thrawn or tarkin now. they do get involved in several scraps, infantry based scraps as well as starship based.
  11. im really angry that we have been given two articles! FFG are such a pain! nothing for months and then two whole articles!?!? who do they think they are? a bus service!? outrageous! in other news, I am very happy with this....I hate you FFG... but I also love you...
  12. surely if the Disney marker is on the box or blister pack it is now considered cannon. AKA yes, IA is cannon.

    New Article - FFG Game mats

    with regards to cost of the mats. they are roughly the same prices as other neoprene mats http://www.deepcutstudio.com/product/wargames-terrain-mat-wild-west/ for example is €64 for a 6x3 current exchange rate according to google 80 US Dollar equals 64.70 Euro
  14. bleed....when will FFG realise they've forgotten bleed tokens!
  15. hoth and bespin have been surpassed in the skirmish game. still great campaign content but not so relevant for skirmish anymore I'm afraid.

    Multiples for Skirmish?

    if you can't borrow or are a collecting nut then feel free to buy more than one of things. currently things that do well in multiples are the rangers and the smugglers outside of that the time has passed for the other units. I have the following 2 rangers 3 smugglers 2 hired guns 2 wookies 2 isb 3 echo base troopers 2 terros 2 rangers 2 sabs 1 rebel troopers do I use them all? no, just the rangers and smugglers. That'll change with the next wave though I'm sure
  18. you're wrong....that is they very definition of a dead game* *according to tolls

    IA is Alive!

    you know, I had never even considered that as an option! you have literally blown my mind with the potential awesome sauce that could be made with that idea. I need to sit down!

    IA is Alive!

    thrawn is a key character in rebels tv show which is starting to feature heavily in IA. as such, Thrawn will be in IA in my opinion. Hope we get Kalus as an imperial though rather than turncoat rebel

    Home-made expansion: Rogue One

    I feel that a three die attack for 3 points is ridiculously good (grey death troopers) add in the deletion of focus or hide to give out a weaken and the roll a black and white to chose the most beneficial result they become so powerful and cheap your opponent might as well concede the game once deployed. who would run anything other than 4 grey death troopers? their health isn't in the auto one shot (not adjusted by CC or other buffs) range either so they can't even be classed as glass cannons. I feel these need looking at again, either making weaker or upping the points cost. I like what you're trying to achieve with the other units though, they just need polishing a bit more I think. Also, sadly the map appears to be biased in favour of the blue deployment zone when taking into account the objective locations. looks great though and fun to play on, but not very good for competitive play

    Anyone planning to use Legion Minis

    id not considered it to be honest. IA has a better variety of minis at the minute (not including the heavy weapons etc) although the different poses would add a bit of variety to the game
  24. Im quite happy to miss out the forrest tiles from vendor but I would really like the shield generator tiles. even if they are made somewhat generic. maybe a village in forrest would be good too. the tiles are so versatile for things like RPGs aswell.

    Drokatta - Help!

    I suggest it is worded the way it is incase you're playing with just two or three heroes so you end up with extra activation token(s). If drokkatta had two activation tokens she could demolish twice a turn (once per activation she has)
