  1. Specifically, if I dont want to play empire or rebels? It looks like dice, measuring templates, and soon damage cards will be available separately. So if you were brand new and wanted to play say separatists or resistance, would you still get the starter? [I'm actually not new to x-wing, just 2.0, but I no longer own any models]
  2. Unfortunately, I like AoS 2.0 so much I just sold my entire SW:Armada collection to help fund my AoS collection. This is a great game, but my area has no players and I bought the last couple waves without getting a chance to use them on the table. The few of us that played Armada tried getting Legion up and running, but with no luck. On the other hand, I can go to 3 different stores between home and work that have AoS running all the time.
  3. Thank you for the kind words! Right now Vader is all black still, I'm trying to figure out how to subtly fit him in. Thinking maybe green under-cape or a stripe somewhere.
  4. Introducing the fighting men and women of the 720th "Untamed" stormtrooper legion; specializing in wilderness survival, hostile native wildlife, and extended engagements without naval support. Personally commissioned by Grand Moff Tarkin after realizing the inefficiency of Clone War battlefield stratagems against the guerrilla tactics of rebel insurgents, the training regiment of the 720th reflects some of the unconventional Tarkin family rites of passage found in the jungles of Eriadu. All legionnaires are recruited from hardened survivors of uncivilized planetary systems found in the Outer Rim.
  5. Haven't seen the models in person yet, but 1/8 inch Nd magnets are usually my go to for vehicles in every other game. 1/16 inch if they are very delicate parts.
  6. Growing up in the US, I never learned Dutch history so this movie is not only a great age of sail movie with interesting tactics, but educational. Recommended for Armada players into naval and political history.
  7. I could see that being an issue, especially since those two scratch a similar tactical itch (for me at least). Really I have no idea what to expect or read into for something like Adepticon, miniatures have mostly been a personal hobby of painting and lore for me with actual play being very sporadic. I was excited to realize a good sized wargame conference was less than an hour from home and my wife convinced me to be social and go. Hopefully see some of you there.
  8. I've just been working from the core set as well (plus all the wave 1 packs, hate using tokens to represent bosses and allies). Thinking about which expansion to do next, I am mostly waiting for the app to update like you guys mention. Do only the "big" expansions have extra tiles? Or do all of them? That would seem to be the way to increase variety other than just more models.
  9. I'm going to my first Con this year and am a little bummed that FFG isn't doing any RW demos and only 3 people are signed up for the RW tourny. They have demos for X-Wing, Armada, IA, and Legion (which has tournaments going even though it's not out). I've never played past the core set for RW but was hoping to see more of it in action at a big wargame convention. Eventually I'll try to build a local community, but it's hard to break 40k's hold. Any time I try to garner interest at my FLGS, I'm met with crickets. I think underselling it at cons won't help.
  10. I'm sure it was a mistake, but I think that is a possible source of people's unreasonable expectations for such an early release. On the topic of the thread though, I think they've done a pretty amazing job getting Runewars where it is model-wise in such a short amount of time. I just wish it had more players.
  11. The original article said Q4 2017, but was quickly changed.
  12. 40k has compulsory movement with flyers, it's a pretty standard trope in miniature games. But nice call, speeders would seem silly just hovering in one place.
  13. I prefer the 0.4mm scale. Storm troopers are much easier to paint at that scale and you can fit dozens of AT-ATs on the board. Oh wait, this isn't the Armada forum?
  14. Oh and warmachine/hordes uses 4x4, so the 3ft thing was something X-wing really brought about.
