    Hey if you're interested Sorastro has a video on his youtube page for how to do Genosian terrain that might help inspire you further! It looks great keep up the good work!

    Sadly not, more like 6-10 weeks from first listing of on the boat before items arrive.

     
     
    That's why this is funny because everything but the core set and phase 1 clone troopers is shipping.

    So happy they decreased Jyn's points!

    I suspect that's their baseline for competitive value now.  Changing it just to try and make more build diversity in Imperial lists could really throw off the balance with other factions.

    I understand the need for point adjustments and thought it was a good idea to make it easier to do in X-Wing. What I don't like is the constant nerf/buff cycling you get in MMOs. I think we are getting a bit of that in X-Wing. 
    I'm hoping Legion hits the sweet spot. With printed values on the cards they are still incentivized to do the proper play testing and get the right value during the design.

    Even though it will be a little inconvenient that we'll have to look up points costs, I'd rather do that then not get to use some of the minis I own. Can't wait to try out the T-47!

    The goal in making my terrain was first and foremost to make something easy to play on. That means, no hills for miniatures to fall over on, no sand that crumbles when you handle it, no super tall things that fall over, etc. I also want to walk the fine line between durability and looks. I think I found a happy medium. All this stuff is super robust and I tried to give some tactical variety:
    Height 2 rockwalls

    Heavy cover
     

    Light cover

    Difficult terrain

    More line of sight blocking
     
    Here it all is. I wonder if that meets the quota of "enough terrain" for competitive play. I might add some more line of sight blocking 3d printed spires (gotta stop those snipers!)

    I've been a bit out of the loop. Is Demolisher still the ultimate OP ship it used to be? Because I would change its rule.
    Also, I would increase the front arc angle of the nebulon b.

    JBar reacted to Darth Sanguis in How is the SSD doing in the wild?   
    Personally, I see 800+ as the way Armada was meant to be played, so I'm hella biased.

    The competitive scene, 400 point builds or lower, they just don't do anything for me anymore. You always have to sacrifice something, I never feel like I'm building a whole fleet. Honestly the game shouldn't have even been labeled "Armada" at the standard point build. "Task force" or "Do-group" would have been better suited.

    Anyways, I think those who are inclined to play competitive games will see some niche SSD usage during the next few months as the SSD and RitR meta matures.  After that I expect to see the SSD played almost exclusively in sector fleet battles. (Unless a couple JankMasters™ such as myself crawl out from under a rock to get thrashed at a tourney once in a while.)

    I'd check out skullforge miniatures, I'm pretty sure you can find Phase II clone heads there. I imagine it will take some careful modelling to make them fit however, given the phase I clones are soft plastic like all legion kits have been until B1s, so the head comes attached to the body.

    This piece was an afterthought but the Facebook pages really seemed to like it haha. I almost didn't make it. I used some Geonosian warriors as statues. I think I'm finished with everything now. I'm just waiting for my mars mat to arrive in the mail. If I need some more I might pick up some 3d printed spires for more line of sight blocking terrain.
     

    And here are the finished starfighters. It took some work not getting paint on the original paint jobs.

    Some updates. I have to wait a few days for the paper mache to fully dry out. Then I'll get to painting the crashed ships.
     
     
     
    I'm hoping this will be enough terrain. I might make a few more pieces but I want leave some room for new ideas instead of making more of the same stuff.
