    JBar got a reaction from DarkTrooperZero in Chewie article is up   
    That was my problem with Warmachine. Way too many synergies for a new player to understand.
    However, this game is pretty thematic so as a casual player I'd naturally expect Chewy to be easily paired with the other heroes. I don't have to read over all the rules to know Chewy should pair well with others.
    It fits thematically this time, as long as you said, it doesn't get out of hand with future releases.

    These look waaaay better than the last ones IMO. However I'll personally still want to get 6x3 so there isn't a gap. There are lots of sites that sell those with similar designs.

    I'm a no, let's stick with armies not a bunch of random crime syndicates for now. Let the game grow and evolve into a full wargame before going down the let's just start spamming random stuff a lot of people know nothing about.
    When every second game of Xwing turned into a game versus a ship or pilot I have never heard of it lost some shine

    No, it's effectively a bin of random units that won't fit in when used in a major faction let alone with each other. In IA you could have tusken raiders going around with Boba Fett, Maul, and HK-47 of all things. That's not a faction, that's "none of these would actually fit in a major group so we're going to throw all of them together as a faction because logic."

    Officer Vader: While a friendly ship at distance 1-5 is attacking a ship, it may discard 1 of its COMMANDER or OFFICER cards (other than Darth Vader) to reroll any number of dice in its attack pool (1pt)

    I've never taken "theme" to mean "all your units look exactly the same." The theme of my army is "Rebels." I mean, look at the commandos and rangers on Scarif; you see headgear and uniforms that are later used on both Endor and Hoth, as well as other stuff. Also, people are getting REALLY hung up on the "snow" in snowtroopers. Like you said, it's easy to think of them as hostile environment troopers who could be used practically anywhere, and even if the board you have set up is some paradise world that's 70 degrees and sunny (but not too sunny) at all times, units get put into combat all the time with the equipment they happen to already have. People invaded Iraq wearing BDUs (essentially jungle/forest camo) and we had a shitload of tan vehicles in Korea. Anyway, if that's what "theme" means to you, then FFG didn't "fail." They deliberately decided that they didn't care. They did this because most of us (the players) don't care either, or don't see a problem. Your choices are to deal with it or to chop your models up and turn them into what you want, and I've seen some fantastic conversions (speeder bike scouts make pretty good E-web gunners if you don't like snowtroopers). I honestly can't see FFG catering to the extremely small (if loud) subsection of Legion players who care enough about having every single infantry model be exactly the same that they don't buy stuff.

    Yeah, it just doesn't bother me at all. Rebels should look rag-tag and varied. Snowtroopers look great when painted up as elite troops and it's very easy to run all snows or all stormies and have a themed force. I just don't see the issue here.
    As far as competing with other games, all it needs to be is Star Wars. It has a solid system and mainstream appeal. There's no turn-off for the majority of people.

    I guess it just hasn’t bothered me before. How would you go about having different stats for minis that look identical? That’d be even more confusing.
    If you want a theme, you can just use one type of corps unit only. Nobody is making you mix snow and storm troopers.

    JBar reacted to TheGreenKnight in a message for those who wonder about the success of SWL   
    Yeah, the WotC rules were a joke. I read through them once, shook my head in puzzlement at why I would want to play such a thing, and then proceeded to stock up on enough generic trooper minis to play games using the old WEG D6 rules—which were great fun, and versatile and vague enough to cover pretty much anything WotC produced in miniature form. The minis were never great quality, but I was grateful for the variety, and most didn’t look half bad when repainted.

    JBar reacted to RyonOlson in Should FFG increase the official points limit?   
    I've found 500 points to be extremely fun and manageable, so I suspect if they did raise the points cap it would probably be to 500.
    Still, take my advice with a grain of salt. I personally prefer games that are at least 600 points, even going up to a 2-player, 1500 point per side game.

    Yeah but I still want to put Vader or Luke out on the table rather than Joe rebel or imperial Steve.  Historical games are just the opposite for me but if I am going to the trouble of fighting a star war then I want some recognizable characters.

    JBar reacted to Varulfr in I made a terrain!   
    First ever attempt at designing some lasercut terrain.  I'm thinking of putting the files up on Thingiverse if anyone is interested.
    Some Notes:
    1. I know the door is a Death Star door but meh.
    2. The top section of the central command building hasn't been cut from wood yet, photos are of the wooden base with the cardboard prototype on top.  The final version the roof is removable and there will be a texture cut into the top side as well as the bottom, which will feature a hatch and possibly a ladder that will slot into the base of the roof. There will also be a removable door with angled sides so it's flush against the angled walls.
    3. I haven't finished etching two of the flush-corner pieces.
    4. Yes it's designed for 6mm wood/mdf.  For some reason there isn't a single place in 4 hours drive near me to acquire anything thinner at a reasonable price, but cheap 1/4 inch wood is everywhere.
     
    So, take a look and let me know what you think!
     
    These are the basic modular pieces. From left to right, top to bottom: 1 - central command building, 2 - large door (I also have a smaller door, differently detailed not shown), 3 - flush corner section, 4 wall extension section, 5 right-angle section (good for putting in a door or an alternative to the flush corners)

    This is the full assembled base with all sections and door.

    As the sections are somewhat modular, you can make several different shapes. This mini-base was created just using the right-angle sections and the door piece.  I've also made a long barricade wall ala Hadrian's.

    Not too flashy from behind, but it does the trick.  Filled with some scatter terrain I think it might do. The walkways are designed to allow the minis' bases to pushed up into the wall, so the figures can be flush against it.

    Hello fellow Legionnaires!  I was so inspired by Bhunter46's post that I decided to give my own Endor table a go!
    Like Bhunter46, I've never done anything like this before, so here is the end result of my labor of love.  Obviously credit goes to Bhunter46, especially for the wrecked AT-ST (I love that idea) and a shout out to Sorastro for the great pine tree tutorial video which I followed to build the trees.
