  1. Technically no, but the Legends stuff did have an Ewok Jedi.... so it's not inconceivable a few got off the planet.
  2. Yea, mine our. I don't have them in front of me, but I believe the 2nd edition attack dice had hit, hit, eye. My 1st edition dice were hit, eye, hit. Might be other way around. I'll try and edit this when I get home. The defense die were exactly the same.
  3. Well that's good to hear. Kinda figured it was a silly question, but I wanted to make sure.
  4. This might be a dumb question, but I haven't seen anyone talk about it. I got my core set of the 2nd edition and I was checking the dice from my 1st edition. The defense die have the same faces, but the attack die while they have the exact same symbols, they are placed slightly differently on the dice. I believe statistically that doesn't make a difference? Will organized play require only the 2nd edition dice? Sorry if dumb, just trying to organize new and old, wondering if I can throw in all the dice or if there might be a problem later on down the road if I did so.
  5. You should be able to request the pieces if your copy had the mistake. I got a more recent copy and everything was fine. Take some photos and ask FFG for replacements, I'm sure they will send them .
  6. Yup it's over. And I guess... maybe. Legion has had a ton of releases and they did even more, even hyped up releases for 2019. Same with X-wing. I just wish there was more hype from them, because all over the internet, gamestores etc. are basically declaring this game dead. I want to not believe them...
  7. Unfortunately they said nothing. I don't know, maybe there will be a small announcement during the week, but sad. They should have at least mentioned it, but they might be giving up on the line.
  8. Coat works either way really, one of those ambiguous models. I get you on skin tone, I have a hard time with it. I use to do Bugman's Glow, Cadadian Fleshtone, Kislev Flesh, as my layers. I always found that hard to blend quite right. Lately, I've stuck to glazing and I really like the results: Can see the results in a fair amount of my investigator videos. I use medium fleshtone from Vallejo, then kislev flesh, then eflic flesh (vallejo) or flayed one flesh [they are both pretty close to each other) and then glaze those highlights down with searphim sephia. Makes a nice yellow,pink,white fleshtone in my opinion.
  9. It's not bad at all. It's hard to get real detail on these miniatures. The melty paint look could honestly just be the camera. I've had that happen once where it looked fine in person, but my camera made it look like melted butter, very weird. https://imgur.com/a/zNNzGmY My agatha isn't all that great to be honest haha, before I learned the skin technique I know now.
  10. That's one way to do it. I kind of like to actually start base painting in an off-white color like Uthuran Grey. Then if I do any wash on the whites, it's primarily only to the darkest recess orrr I'll water down nuln oil and put a few light applications of it across the entire area. The way, I hopefully don't have to go over the entire area to get good highlights.
  11. Agatha Crane isn't too bad. I had the original first edition version (same sculpt, but the plastic is even worse than 2nd edition). White is always interesting to paint.
  12. Yea, it's tanbark for the big rocks and then just pebbles and stuff here and there. For the speeder bikes I did a little painting - washed the tanbark and some drybrushing, but for the speeder I pretty much left them as is.
  13. https://imgur.com/a/xIAU2Y9 Lots of new images!
  14. Not bad at all! I'm crazy, and I love painting plus these minis are fairly lowish quaility so I can practice advanced techniques and when they don't always work out, they still look fine.
  15. It's a fair amount of practice. Highlighting is all about layering paint, which the paint needs to be fairly thin to do, but it does take practice to see how your brand of paints works in that regard. As long as you are using acrlyics the dry time should be fairly quick, so you can add the next layer fairly quickly. It's typically just washes that may take a bit of time.
  16. No problem! She looks pretty good. Marie was honestly one of the hardest investigators to paint in my opinion. Highlights are tough, everyone makes it look so easy, but it takes practice. If anything from looking at your model there, your paint jobs would probably benefit from having the paint thinned down a little bit more. The layers there look slightly thick. (I still struggle with thinned paints to some degree even today, again just takes practice and a little experimentation)
  17. I haven't gotten very far yet, still assembling and waiting for a few replacement pieces. But I did manage to finish about half the stormtroopers. Keeping them pretty traditional for now. These aren't' fully done technically when I took the photos, but just some minor touch up left basically, and I'm adding a bit more sand texture to the bases in places to give a bit of height in areas. Hoping to get Vader done soon, and have the imperials all painted up for the time being.
  18. Haha, I normally don't go all out like that, but the star vampire is just a really cool looking model that I really wanted it to stand out. Thank you for the compliments.
  19. I never really post on these boards, so this feels a little like advertising, so if anyone thinks it's uncool, I can delete. I made a few painting tutorials for Mansions of Madness on my YouTube Channel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avM2IekyLtU&list=PLc5n8uQiMzzVMJqu6gIah91KSRdvzcyE0 (playlist link) So far there is only 3 for the newest expansion: so hired gun, skeleton and star vampire. They are okay, think my quality is improving. Not up to Sorastro's level, but if anyone is curious, you can check it out.
  20. You should check the imperial assault forums. FFG has an agreement with Hasbro that makes it so they can't sell imperial assault on the FFG website. You'll have to go to a local game store, or some other website in order to purchase. The game is far from being discontinued and there should be plenty of stock floating around.
  21. Okay, so interesting thing happened. Played the first scenario with some friends and we got in trouble towards the end as we had to end the ritual. Now everyone on the team had 3 lore or less, with no way to roll additional dice. We got 3 success on one roll and it did not count. Continually got more successes and the app just kept saying that the ritual was getting closer and closer to finishing. As suddenly it seemed impossible to win, I put it on 4 successes and it passed. So, the question is. Was this an impossible scenario based on our team? or was the app adding our successes up and I just happened to pass the threshold when I put it on 4?
