    Lord Tareq reacted to horsepire in Basing 1/2256 fighters - any brilliant ideas?   
    Put a few pics of the fighters in their current state on instagram.  Hopefully that link works!
     
    As you can see, they're REALLY small (and my iPhone camera sucks) - but I think the level of detail is incredible for the size and they just look a lot more appropriate next to the big cap ships.

    Maybe the extra attack dice is not due to Wedge's own combat abilities, but due to him supporting the other X-wings in his squad allowing those to output that extra dice?

    I'm going for a post Endor themed fleet with 2 or maybe 3 ISD-II's, 1 VSD-II, 2 or 3 Lancer frigates, 2 Escort Carriers, 1 Interdictor, 1 or 2 Vindicators, and 1 or 2 Strike Cruisers. With a matching (canon) Star Fighter complement.

    I love that Victory Class DWRR, it looks like it flew right out of a comic book page

    Lord Tareq got a reaction from Hesekiel in Boarding   
    I always thought the whole principle of boarding during a space battle is far fetched. I can see hit and run attacks in say Star Trek due to the transporter technology, but in Star Wars it involves loading troops on an assault shuttle, flying through an ordnance soaked and enemy fighter infested battlezone, somehow docking with an enemy ship, then fighting your way through the ship's defenders to critical area's of said ship to sabotage it. When anything goes wrong on the enemy ship you'd have to fight your way back to your shuttle, hope it hasn't been blown up by the defenders, then fly back through the ordnance soaked and enemy fighter infested battlezone to your mothership. Who would volunteer for that?
     
    I know Star Was is filled with boarding actions (mostly involving Jedi), but it never made much sense to me mid battle even though the principle is cool.
     
    But as for rules, it could simply be an assault shuttle squadron without an attack value. Bringing it in contact with an enemy ship gives you a single black dice attack that bypasses shields after which you discard the squadron.

    Lord Tareq got a reaction from JgzMan in To LGS or not to LGS? That is the question.   
    That's an odd analogy since you generally don't intend to use your nearest car dealer as a hobby center where you stop by every other week to socialize with others into the same hobbies.
     
    My 2 cents on this discussion: If, like me, you don't really participate in using your local gamestore as a 'clubhouse' or social center, but instead only collect the miniatures and/or only play with friends at home etc. then you should absolutely buy the stuff online for the cheapest price possible. Otherwise you are a thief of your own wallet, or indeed it is a form of charity to pay more to support a gamestore you rarely/never visit.
     
    However if you do plan to be in your local gamestore regularly and it holds (social) meaning to you (in the same way many people have a local bar they use as a social center that they are willing to support even though they can buy their drinks in a supermarket for 1/3rd of the price), then you should absolutely be buying at that store for the higher price, in which case you are not only paying for the product and the owners salary like you would online, but also the rent of the building, the insurance, the electrical bills, the employees salaries, etc..etc.. Essentially you are paying for your hobby center to be there.
