  1. I might try this: Green Squadron Pilot (19) Crack Shot (1) Chardaan Refit (-2) Adaptability (0) Autothrusters (2) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Jan Ors (25) Decoy (2) Twin Laser Turret (6) Ezra Bridger (3) Lothal Rebel (35) Fire-Control System (2) Plasma Torpedoes (3) Hera Syndulla (1) Kanan Jarrus (3) Total: 100 Solid list but I think Ezra is more useful as you're going to be stressing yourself with Jan's ability.
  2. If you don't already you should check out this podcast: http://www.dancarlin.com/
  3. Ho many bears exactly would it take to impair you?
  4. Do you mean F2F, when they rented the hall for their Store Championship event (for a bunch of the games)? Or did Dueling Grounds have a big event as well? I feel bad seeing posts, like the OP, since in Toronto there are so many stores. When I lived in New Jersey it was hard to find stores, here there is an X-wing night every single day of the week. I also feel bad that I cannot support some stores more, if only I could win a lottery! I was saving some money to buy Imperial Veterans when it comes out, and to buy some cards for a new edition of another miniature game I play, both of which are supposed to release later this week. But since those were on the horizon, I hadn't spent much at a store I started playing at in the northern part of the city. That store closed this weekend, and now I wish I had just gotten a couple of other ships that were lower on my want list, just to have shown support. They charge a bit more than Meeplemart, 401, or HairyT (since they are only B&M) but I got along with them and like the time I have played their over the past two months. I get Dueling Grounds & F2F mixed up. It's a shame that stores have been close down, Hobby Kingdom was pretty nice. It is really hard to compete though because of the number of shops in Toronto alone.
  5. They never bought anything, they just fight over it whenever the ship shows up which is why it's called the Pound.
  6. A lot of the Toronto stores are pretty good though some stand out way more. You can't really beat 401 or Meeple Mart on pricing so you really have to get loyalty. Some tournaments were starting at $20 for just the kit though for a bit. Agreed. I think they're ok charging more than Meeps or 401, just not so much! I'd say Meeps has zero customer service, but it's more like minus 100. They're an online seller with a wearhouse you can walk into. LOL. 401 is cool, but sooooo not star wars focussed. The LGS in Toronto need to NOT compete with the prices of merch and start charging more for tournaments. I've never payed more than $5 for a store kit, $10 for a Championship, $20 for regional. The store kit and championship are where they need to mark up. Then hold back extra swag and be blatant about your next tournament..."it's for store credit and leftover swag from the last kit". Typically the tourneys are cheaper but I know some in the horseshoe amped up the prices. 401 does a good job on tournaments as they have a ton of space upstairs though regionals was very cramped on the weekend. I ended up dropping due to a combination of heat/ losing/ and odour. Dueling Grounds had the right idea when they rented that hall for their big event.

  8. That's hugely undemocratic though, Should we also do that for medicare? They're old they aren't gonna be around long enough to really benefit, that money could be used elsewhere.I was joking, obviously. You joke but I'll bet there isn't a single politician who wouldn't love this scenario. Give the 18-25 year old with a chip on their shoulder against boomers more say than anyone else. The political system in Canada is not much better than the States. We have two big parties (Liberals & Conservatives), 1 medium (NDP), and a smattering of small parties (Green, Bloc). The majority of them are leftist for the most pat. Part of the liberals campaign was to change the voting system so that people would select their first, second and third choice. This sounds pretty good until you take into account that Liberals are almost always going to be second choice when they aren't first. I vote NDP, then I'm going to select Liberal as my second choice because they aren't the Conservatives. I vote Conservative, I'm going to select Liberal as my second choice because they aren't the NDP. If this system get's put into place then Liberals will almost certainly never lose power in Canada. Will they do it? Who knows but they have a majority so they definitely can if they want.

  10. Don't make stupid claims like this without supporting evidence.Also, LOL, you do realize Obama is a Christian, right? The Benghazi thing is real. I won't comment in the religion part... haven't seen evidence of that. Benghazi was a real event. That version of events is 100% false. When REPUBLICANS drop an investigation you can be sure they exhausted all options. 51 times they tried to overturn obamacare wasn't it. No bodies ever accused the gop of being quitters. The Benghazi Embassy asked for additional security well prior to the attack and she personally declined. She is to blame for American citizens being tortured, raped, and executed. The proof of it is in the emails on her private server.Again, this is a completely false account of the events. Please don't spread false information. I certainly wouldn't want to impugn the honour of such a noble woman. In the end America is ******, you all had three chances to elect an actually respectable person and you threw it away. Mind, Canada isn't much better. We've got a Prime memester with really nice hair and such progressive ideas. Those who have said Western Civilization is collapsing are rgiht but it's not Brexit or Trump/Shillary who are doing it.

  12. You know Musk is landing on Mars around 2018, right?
  13. One world government won't happen. Humans need Us & Them. Multiple countries mean multiple Thems. If you somehow established a One World Government then you better hope aliens roll around otherwise the only Them is the the government or other members of the citizenry.
  14. The last time a German ran Europe cropped up you Brits weren't too interest.

    ARC 170s (again)

    Was hera FAQ'd?
  16. From what I've seen Khador should suit me fine and I really like their aesthetic. Once I've played a bit it'll determine whether i invest or not really.
  17. Do you mean to tell me that if I bother you enough my antics can be promoted on YouTube?
  18. Yeah, I expect to lose for a long time. I've been watching video of matches and while those are presumably pretty skimmed down it looks very straightforward. I'll be having an experienced playing working on getting me up to snuff so it should be alright. What horde did you get?
  19. Does anyone have experience playing War machine here? With the new release soon I'm looking to get into it playing as Khador. A friend at my LGS has experience and he's been pushing the owner to get the battle boxes. For you more experienced miniature collectors/gamers are there specific sites that I could find older armies to buy or is Ebay my best bet?
  20. Well Oklahoma wouldn't secede before Texas would. Most likely you'd just be swallowed up at that point.
  21. When does the Tau expac get released?

    Tell that to my rockets in Kerbal Space Program. You clearly didn't have enough rockets. I put more on and it gets worser It's all about stages my man. 50+ rockets for the initial take off. I recommend having several going laterally to initiate spin and keep it straight. Once they burn out ditch em and set off the next 30.
  23. Based on State GDP almost every state could do quite well. The lowest GDP is Vermont and that's still $30 Billion, better than Iceland and 100 other countries. Obviously if borders pop up that changes things but Singular states could certainly maintain. So here's to you Bongers. Go out there and Make Britain Great Again. But... Iceland as an example is a bad one. Practically no crime. (170 people in prison i think). They dont need to lock their doors. They have 100 per cent renewable energy and use most of that to process aluminium for other people They have fantastic gender equality They have 'cradle to crave' social and health care. They have very little alcoholism and hard drug abuse They forbid the use of 'titles' and 'lordships' , everyone uses first names They dont even want or need a bloody army. You dont need to be massively successful at industry if your living standards are that good! I've just got back from the place, its heavenly. Just goes to show that if you spend your money on educating your populace and caring for them rather than on building planes for bombing the heck out of other people you get better results I wasn't saying Iceland is bad, my point was that even the lowest producing state can produce enough to match or exceed a lot of places. Granted Vermont's primary exports consist of turtlenecks, smugness, and a killer accent. I doubt Brexit will happen and (reluctantly) admit that if it did then it would fail. If Scotland had left the UK it would have failed miserably. If Catalan leaves Spain then it to would probably fail. If Quebec were to leave Canada then good riddance. The world is changing and more and more groups are gonna want their piece of the pie.
