    TLDR: here be Skirmish maps: ibrahimshaath.co.uk/imperialassault.
     
    After lots of careful Photoshopping I managed to get all the current skirmish maps printable, with all the data from the mission cards alongside them.
     
    Incredibly low res previews are here. The full versions are 300dpi.
     
    I'm very pleased with them; I managed to get all of the jigsaw-joins to disappear and the gridline alignment is nearly perfect.
     
    Just dropping here as I thought someone might find them interesting. Also pride I guess  .

    Malev Da Shinobi reacted to Elrath' in Sorastro's Painting   
    Ooh, perfect timing. I just finished painting the Nexus. The elite one went too dark because the dry paint had gone too dry and I had to revive it with water. And then it pooled a little on the crevices and it didn't look good. So I did some extra wash with Seraphim Seepia and drybrushed and washed again. Then I thought that I'll just live with it. In the end it didn't turn out as badly as I feared.
     

    Oh and thank you again for the amazing videos, Sorastro. I don't think I could have done much anything to the Nexus without the tutorial. I like how every video has some new tips and techniques. And sometimes even the most common things come as a bit of a revelation to me. For example, mixing lighter color to darker one to lighten the tone for highlights. My instinct would be to use white. But it's not always the ideal case. Like with the Nexu's spines. It's one point I have to try and remember when painting.

    Become? BECOME?! Where do you think all that crap on Wookiepedia even came from? Look down at the sources and appearances part of any article. You will see dozens and DOZENS of novels by authors that had very little guidance on where things are going. Mostly they had free reign to do whatever barring killing major heroes. Most of it is complete garbage. Lucas big win with the studio when Star Wars first came into existence was to keep the merchandising rights, he's been milking the Star Wars cash cow since 1977. Welcome to Star Wars.
    Become... Yeeesh, Games Workshop is but a padawan of milking it compared to the Sith Lord Lucas.

    Malev Da Shinobi reacted to Buhallin in Turn off the fire hose!   
    I always find this an ironic complaint.  X-wing's release schedule barely qualifies as a snail's pace compared to most miniatures games.  Yet we very often hear complaints that it's all coming too fast.  Really, the last wave hit in January, it's now August - that's averaging a ship every two months or so?  There's absolutely nothing "fire hose" about that release schedule.  "Anemic" is a better term.
     
    I've been pondering this, and I actually think a big part of the source of this is the sales model.  Very few miniatures games expect or require you to buy every product that comes out.  There may be 6 new Warmachine models this month, but only one is for my faction, and it may not even fit my usual army.  But the brilliance/evil of X-wing's distribution system means you can barely do that.  Literally every single release has cards that fit every single players.  Many players just accept this by playing every faction in the game.  Others buy ships they might not want to get cards they do.  And almost everyone buys extra copies of ships they'll never use just to get the right cards they will (my fifth A-wing is looking at me sadly).
     
    If there is a "fire hose" for X-wing, it's the one funneling your money to FFG, not a massive flow of new product to us.
     
    Edit: Wave 6 hit on February 24th.  To date, we've got exactly one new ship: the Raider.  If we include the soon-to-be-released Wave 7, we've got 5.  In that time, Privateer Press has release FORTY-THREE new WarmaHordes SKUs.  Admittedly some number of those (too much effort to determine which) are conversions to plastic or consolidated army boxes.  So...  yeah.  Whatever issues people have with the pace of X-wing releases, it doesn't actually have anything to do with the pace of X-wing releases.

    Based on the announcement, it looks like the aspects of this expansion that will translate to the base game (shadow rune campaign) are the monsters and the new condition. If there are shop cards included, those would translate as well. So far we haven't heard anything about rumor cards, and without them the LTs and map tiles wouldn't cross over. It sounds like the tainted cards are elements of the quests in this campaign, so they also probably wouldn't affect other campaigns.
     
    I am in no way saying that this expansion won't add to your collection (I am definitely planning on picking it up) but there might be a better choice for a first expansion if what you're looking for is flavor for the shadow rune campaign. For example, Trollfens, Lair of the Wyrm, and Manor of Ravens include rumor cards which allow their mini campaign quests to be played as part of a full campaign, along with shop cards, hero classes in addition to the new monster groups, and a new condition. They also each contain an OL deck (something else not mentioned in the announcement.) The previously released big boxes also feature OL decks and more heroes/classes. As a compliment to the base game, I am partial to "Labyrinth of Ruin" for the new basic 2 OL deck.
     
    In any case, Mists of Bilehall looks like it has a lot of quality content- but not the type of content designed to integrate heavily into the base game, but rather will provide an additional adventure of its own with a distinct thematic twist.
