    Your History with IA

    I finished collecting Xwing after the Decimator release. Then I Followed Imperial Assault when i saw some promo images of the grey minis and colourful dice. just waiting for its release. Got the game, I have always liked little skirmishes in the star wars universe, from all the old video games and legends stories. so this felt right at home. text all my interested mates and started back into mini painting with the help of Soastro. my buddies played the core campaign and had a blast, i forgot how tedious some of the book keeping was. though i did have a habit of writing down key events that happened so i could let my rebels relive their exciting moments at the end of the campaign. I started also hosting Campaigns at my local boardgame cafe and made some good friends that i am still in contact with to this day. it was always a blast, I DM'd a bit and played themeatically and really just played my love of star wars. i loved how excited my several different facebook campaign groups would react, when i would post new expansion reveals, and minis. I tried to keep up with campaign collections, was not that interested in skirmish in the early years. I picked up some expansions and Iconic heroes/ villians for the campaign. was not that interested in Bespin gambit. but someone gifted it to me later down the road, which i cant complain with. i have everything in my collection except the smuggler, wookie warriors and bantha rider. later i started using the apps for my campaign book keeping. (coolgrass your app was the best. RIP updates) i then decided that i wanted to draw illustrations of star wars at work, where i was an Animation Lecturer for a few years, so i started developing a companion app for the heroes to keep track of their heroes, while giving them a visual update to their characters progress. my love of imperial assualt has kept me working on the app, and i will continue to, until all illustrations are done. but it is a working version and im proud that i got to help make it. I got into skirmish around bespin gambit release i think, it was not super popular in New Zealand and always seeing the same 4 guys at tournaments. so i got to know some new people which was fun. I loved the skirmish games quick nature and the different battles is fun. Im not super competitive by nature so building the best list was never my goal, it was theme and emergent narratives from the skirmishes. At least i always came top 8 in all the tournaments, with player numbers being so low. I think in New Zealand we have stopped buying the tournament kits, as the entry price was to heavy for the 4 some times 5 of us. the last tournament was nationals....? maybe, and i came second. Overall im really happy with my experience, and have got my monies worth, aswell as a wealth of new experiences and memories. I am happy with the game ending now if it does, or is, i have enough stuff to keep playing campaigns, i dont really like having endless boxes piling up in the house. so it has to end sometime. i cant imagine 30 expansion boxes cluttering up the house. i just counted my 7 boxes in the corner of my room, filled with a tight organised system and it already seems too much. Im hoping for the digital space to continue, or a imperial player handbook with many other campaigns. or purchasing some fan made and bound campaign booklets. im going to intergrate my unused Xwing into imperial assault a bit more. also take a break from it, to play other games. it has been a great ride. it doesn't matter if it ends, it has been worth it to me.
  6. Hi there guys, update to the character tracker app is now live. All Tyrants of Lothal equipment and characters have been added, 'Locked crate' and 'missing key' is in the reward section. i have also finished illustrating another character. Drokatta, (images below) we have fixed some general bugs, and health errors. I have added a way to view the character power of the hero if you want to browse different heroes to use. I still have a few more illustrations to complete, but there are place holders in the meantime. over half way with illustrations. Donations can help with getting the images completed faster, as i can hire more and varied artists for images and its not just my art. Might not be a few updates for a while as my app developer had to move to another part of the country and i need to migrate the system to Game maker studio and find a new developer.

  7. I always reshuffle and draw side missions, each time it is side mission picking time. im working on a mini game to allow the heroes to redraw side missions if they dont like whats on offer

    Forced Missions ... no more?

    I had Davith pop up in his skirmish version on the Grand inquisitors mission as the hidden force user. the rebels got to play as him and he held off the inquisitor, they though Davith had died, but i made him come to the rescue with luke in Jabbas realm campaign

    Forced Missions ... no more?

    if my heroes lose a finale mission of a campaign and want to use the same characters again in another campaign, i make the do the captured forced mission, to escape prison. or you can start your campaigns off with a forced mission instead of a tutorial mission, then go straight into the first campaign mission.

    maybe the number of TIES is always the Same, but the Health of the Ties changes with the current mission threat level. Threat 2 = 2 health . threat 3=3 health etc
