  1. They look like different sculpts to me. The one in the core set has a twist in the drivers torso not present in the expansion pack mini.
  2. Basing is one of the aspects of the miniature painting hobby that can have a real impact on your minis and force as a whole. My advice would be to base them all the same, to match your own home board or gaming mat. Personally, I’ll be using sand and pva on my bases, and then painting them an earth tone with drybrushed highlights. I’ll then add grass tufts. This will work with most bases, but especially boards like Endor or Scarif.
  3. Awesome, thanks for posting these. So happy that the flight stands are clear plastic!
  4. I'm going to be copying the look of the Rebels from Scarif in Rogue One. Slate grey/blue and browns.
  5. Sorry to bust your bubble, but these sculpts for the troopers in the expansions are identical to the contents of the box. 20 plus years have wargaming has trained me pretty well to spot identical sculpts. On top of that is the fact that you already get two of each squad in the box anyway. So with these expansions and the core set, your getting three lots of each miniature sculpt. That's a helluva lot of same sculpts, and not much variation. I'll probably just use different paint schemes for the Rebel troops. But you can't do much for the Stormtroopers except for the odd head turn. It wouldn't be so bad if just the squad leaders were different. This is not a deal breaker for me, but as a hobbyist, it's incredibly annoying.
  6. Excited by this news, but a little bummed everything is monopose and the same sculpts. Hope it’s not the case. Will need to raid the WotC minis collection for conversion parts!
  7. Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but Star Wars Legion dispenses with the 'stat line' style of gameplay also. So in Warhammer 40K and Age of Sigmar, for example, a miniature or unit has a 'stat line', which tells you what you need to roll to hit on a D6, or how many hits the unit can take, what it's save throw is on a D6, etc. Legion moves away from this with custom dice reflecting the miniatures stats, rather than the mini itself. I'm very much used to the former style of wargame, so this will take some getting used to, but I can also see the benefits of the style FFG have gone for, making it easier to add things to a unit via upgrade cards, rather than it being set in stone on paper in a stat line or unit entry.
  8. As someone who is used to GWs prices, I'm sitting here thinking 'man, £25 per units is REALLY good value...'. I'll be happy if that is the standard unit cost. Also, you need to add the extra cost of licensing, so Star Wars stuff is going to cost quite a bit more than Rune Wars.
  9. I think there needs to be generic characters. Or at least named generic characters, like Kayn Somos in IA.
  10. Think my board is going to b Scarif themed. I'm certainly going to paint my Rebels in Scarif/Rogue One colours.
  11. Come on FFG, give us some more of that sweet sweet info/teasers/news so we can keep feeding this new found addiction! We NEED more new info!
  12. It has James Earl Jones voice Vader. THAT is all you should need to know to start watching!
  13. Just signed up and started chatting. Needs to be a bit more lively!
  14. You mean 'without' them?
  15. Maybe so, but Rebels isn't solely aimed at children, which was the dismissive point Kappa was making.
