    Collins got a reaction from arnoldrew in 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.

    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

    Collins got a reaction from Gengis Jon in 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.

    Veers has a two speed movement, snowtroopers have a one speed movement. Mystery solved!

    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.

    Collins reacted to IanSolo_FFG in It's FRIDAY!!!!! Who will we see spoiled today??   
    I'm ok with Deathtroopers but they would have to bring something to the game in terms of innovation.  I don't want them  to become the new cannon fodder of the Empire, that is a black version of the stormtroopers (regular stormies are there for that).  They need to bring something fresh that is worth the new sculpt.  Otherwise we can just have Deathtroopers the way the app introduced Vader's finest stormtroopers.  It's a more expansive version of the regular sormtroopers (8 threat instead of 6) that can actually discard harmful condition and become focused for one action.  Do we need new sculpts for Vader's finest so we could paint some fancy pattern to represent troopers taking direct orders from Vader?  No (at least for me)  I can use my imagination.  
    I understand though that Deathtrooper sculpts are a bit different.  But if we are having Deathtroopers, I want more than a different sculpt.  I want a different unit.  However, I'm just questioning if we really need a different trooper unit when I think about all the stormies we have so far (Stormtroopers, Heavytroopers, Snowtroopers, Jettroopers, Riot troopers and I would even count Vader's finest troopers if you are willing to house rule them in a campaign or a casual skirmish game).   The same reason would apply for other possible trooper units like shoretroopers, shocktroopers, scout troopers (might make an exception for the sake of completing OT stuff), shadowtroopers, minetroopers, spacetroopers, tropicaltroopers, 4-season-weather-troopers, officetroopers (work from 9 to 5 only), parental-leave troopers (added to the post-DS1 labor agreement), ...

    hoth and bespin have been surpassed in the skirmish game. still great campaign content but not so relevant for skirmish anymore I'm afraid.
