  1. I called the FFG Center, and they said they aren't available yet, but they are apparently working to make them available, with enough for all IA participants to purchase one. I remember last year they had all the Bespin and Endor X-Wing mats out early, so hopefully we will see this too!
  2. Greater San Francisco Bay Area: Friday evening: Eudemonia - Berkeley Saturday: Gator Games - San Mateo Outflank Games - Fairfield - https://www.facebook.com/events/1786395308311672/ I'll be attending the Outflank event.
  3. In a game I recently played, the question came up about the timing of Element of Surprise and Stealth Tactics. I moved Obi-Wan Kenobi, who had been out of LOS, up to attack a Royal Guard. I play Element of Surprise, and my opponent plays Stealth Tactics. I can remove either of the dice, or can I only remove the black die, since the white die was not in the pool when I played Element of Surprise?
  4. I agree that he isn't an auto include. Heck, I think if any figure is an auto include, the game would need work. Such as the earlier problems with RGs and Rebel Sabs... I think what makes Lando really good is including him with Luke and the Hide/Stun surge. Those two together give him a serious edge over the HKs, and the Hidden makes him significantly more survivable. Also, including him in the Rebels, which have the easier access to Focusing models, makes him better when running with a Rebel list. He isn't someone who we will be seeing allied into Scum that much, though ironically I think he'd be a perfect two faction model from a background standpoint.
  5. I'm thinking add either Jyn and Mak for 8 points, or Davith and Rebel High Command. I do love Jyn!
  6. I love the Black Market Prices if you're taking high-costed command cards that become useless once a particular model has died. Using it with a Hired Gun or Alliance Smuggler is awesome.
  7. Good info. I'm also just terrible with white dice on Nexues for whatever reason. Always seem to roll blank or 1 block.
  8. Unsullied, how did the Nexu handle Trooper lists? That is one concern I have about them: a low number of attacks vs the swarms.
  9. Has she forgiven you for turning down the ID yet? *8P
  10. Data entry error - I've asked the sysadmin of Mini Ranker to fix it.

  13. Question sent in via webform. I'll update when I get a response!
  14. With you two, that is 14 confirmed so far. I am still expecting more, but at least the store isn't going to take a loss on this event now!

  16. I was wondering about this when I played Jundland Terror: does the order of the effects matter? I know that when you get MPs outside of an activation they must be immediately used or lost, but the second part, which is joined by an "and" instead of a "then", calls for an interrupt to attack or perform a special action. So does that mean they are both gained at the same time and can be used in either order?
  17. A question came up during a game tonight: I activated a Nexu and used Beast Tamer to give the Nexu 6 MPs. I then played Pummel. Can I move between the attacks of Pummel?
  18. I asked this of the FFG Rules contact: And the answer:
  19. I'm not so sure about the eStormtroopers being worse than eSnowtroopers. They aren't guaranteed a focus off the bat, though the odds are in their favor (just under 2/3rds if no defense). Once they are focused, they actually are just about equal in terms of damage output to eStormies against no defense, such as Banthas. Again Focused, they are better than unfocused eStormies against White dice, and much better against Black dice, WHEN THE REROLL ISN'T ACCOUNTED FOR. Unfortunately, I don't have a way to incorporate the effect of the Squad Training reroll, but I've found that to be mighty. Plus, getting Focused through Vader's Finest or through losses that can be replaced via Reinforcements makes eStormies significantly better.
  20. Huh. I'm not really sure about that interpretation. The rules specify you cannot play multiple copies of the same command card at the same time, then goes on to give an example of stacking Accuracy. But what about sequentially? Sure, you can't use Explosive Weaponry to go to Blast 2, but Reinforcements played twice, particularly on two different groups, doesn't have the same stacking effect. That should be clarified.
