  1. The wife says they are at home!! Now only 3 hours till the work day ends....
  2. Apparently FedEx gave up and is letting USPS deliver it. It arrived in Atlanta on Friday, then turned around and spent all of Saturday coming back here, arriving here in Tally on Sunday. The official line is that it could take 1 or 2 days to deliver so could be tomorrow or as predicted, Tuesday. Will be crossing my fingers it comes tomorrow...
  3. Geez, can't wait to see the condition they arrive in after their "cross country / get thrown into all sorts of trucks" trip
  4. You interested in a used AT-ST you say? Well let me tell you sonny, I got me right here a real doosie of a deal for you. I know she don't look like much but trust me when I tell you that this ol gal has got many years of life left in her. Why just check out those gun armaments right there, they still have at least 5 degrees of movement on em, and the engine, why it only takes 2 or 3 times to get... Wait! Just a sec, before you walk away I want you to know that this here AT-ST was the same AT-ST that the war hero Chewbacca hi-jacked back on the Battle of Endor. This here is a Republic landmark and they would be all after it if they knew I had it. So since you're a fine looking Imperial Officer, I think I can give you a great deal on this at 49,000 credits, how does that sound?.... Wait a minute! There's no need for blasters in here! I can... Edit: Realized I forgot to actually put in here a comment about the painting Looks pretty awesome, really does look like it walked right out of a junkyard.
  5. I ordered my copies of the expansion figures through CoolStuffInc. They are based in Maitland FL (right outside of Orlando). I live in Tallahassee FL, 4 hours from Orlando. I just got word from FedEx that they received the package yesterday and the expected delivery date is..... next Tuesday, 5 days away. So it's fairly obvious to me that this 4 hour trip should not take 5 days (120 hours) so I have come to the realization that my figures were chosen to tour across America. If you happen to see the FedEx truck carrying my package battling the snow of the north or getting a tan in LA or visiting my original hometown of San Antonio, then give a friendly wave and wish him well on his cross country tour of America. P.S. Yes Internet, this is a joke. I do actually know the FedEx driver is really spending a 3 day layover at the cheap strip bar in Gainesville.
  6. Remove the condition icons and move the damage area up to the top. On the bottom have a tab saying 'Conditions', just like the 'exhausted' one. Then any conditions can have the card slipped under the tab. Bam. Job done. That would theoretically work except that you use tokens for imperials and cards for heroes. There are only 4 cards of each condition, 1 for each hero. Honestly considering the various cards that can boost a figure's health, even the health token areas aren't 100% the best bet. I think I'll just have 2 empty areas, 1 labeled health and 1 labeled condition tokens. Then you can still track individual stats for each figure and aren't tied down to certain health values and I won't have to worry about future conditions. Also Sorastro, just by looking at the picture of Vader... "I'm still not sure I'm 100% happy with him"... you had better be 99.9% happy with him because DAYUM!! Edit: Watched the video and before it I had no desire to change the bases and now I'm curious how much a set of those tech bases are in $$... Thanks I think?
  7. I suspect it is easier to track damage on the base of the figure using dice. I plan to buy something like this. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dice-16mm-Round-Corner-Spot/dp/B003E3DOQ2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1426670438&sr=8-2&keywords=red+dice If you really want a Squad Number then why not paint a stripe across the base. The amount of stripes would designate what number the unit is as part of the squad. I plan on doing this when I paint mine. I've made card sheets for each deployment group with spots for health and conditions, example: I plan on painting the edges the color like Sorastro but add white tick marks at each 90 degree position on the edge to differentiate the ranks I, II, III. Also really ticked because all my cards are now going to be outdated once the expansion hits and there's a new condition. Going to have to come up with something a bit more future proof.
  8. Someone at BGG just pointed this out, if it is I'm going to be so hoping for a Mara Jade figure at some point. It kinda makes sense too, we know she was on Tatooine when Luke was although that was more RotJ then post New Hope...
  9. I just checked and same here, although FedEx is saying it isn't in there system yet (obviously too soon). I am curious though about how long their 'standard' shipping takes. Guess it doesn't really matter, still waiting on FFG to replace my probe droids, apparently they are dealing with "a higher volume of requests at this time, so it’ll take just a bit." /sigh I order from CSI quite a bit (too much actually) but I don't have an answer on the standard shipping. I went for 2-day shipping which is something I don't normally do. I usually pay for the regular FedEx or get the free shipping when the order's big enough, which has also always been FedEx for me. I have a 2nd smaller order of IA, just 2 packs that I forgot to call them about to roll into the larger order (1 of everything), USPS 1st class placed yesterday. That one listed as processing, no tracking number yet. Well I did just find out they were based around Orlando, FL and I live in Tallahassee, basically a 6 hour drive. Hoping it doesn't take them too long to make such a short trip.

  11. You mean you aren't buying 2 or 3 packs of rebel troopers and saboteurs? As someone who is only interested in the campaign, would you need more than 1 pack of each?
  12. Still showing as on the boat for me, but Amazon apparently now has them on their site. Most of them are listing a release date of March 13th, which I'm not sure if I believe.
