  1. True, size is a bit different. And I honestly don't care what type of unit it counts as. Whatever works.
  2. If they wanted to give the empire a type of air support, something in line with rebel airspeeders, but didn't want to go straight to ties, I think there's a cool option. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Patrol_transport Originally police craft in The Clone Wars, they've seen use as air support for the empire in Rebels. I think its a cool ship, and something that would push me over the edge into picking up this game. Great idea or greatest idea?
  3. I'm real on board with the idea of generic commanders. Seems there are others here who feel the same. How do we make this real clear to the designers?
  4. When it comes to paint jobs and miniatures, I say do whatever. Movie accurate forces will look cool, but they'll likely be the norm. I think unpainted minis like this are a great opportunity to come up with your own little fan fiction army. For example, I plan on doing a lot of purple accents and play my group as a Sith Loyalist cult group. If you want examples of fun vehicle paint jobs, I'd actually look at work done on 40k's(ugh) Ork vehicles.
  5. Totally fair. And I forgot about calling in reinforcements. As for the ship being so versatile, I think that's why I didn't like playing it. If I had wanted to play a well rounded sturdy ship, I would have played X-Wing, ya know. But as you said, other views on it are fair. Different experiences.
  6. I'm kinda in the same boat (pun intended). I did play Tie Fighter, however, and still don't like the ship. It doesn't fit in Star Wars, or the Empire for me. More than anything it felt like the designers trying to fill a role in a video game. The missions that made you fly one always felt like filler while I was waiting to get back in a Tie. So I don't get the nostalgia. I'll go one step farther and say that I'm kinda . . . upset is way too strong a word, I guess irked or mildly disappointed that a ship got into the game in the first place. It really feels like it's only here because of a real loud forum meme. I won't be buying one, but I'll agree that I'm excited for peoples' repaints. If someone does something really cool, that might be enough to change my mind.
  7. Wouldn't that just be what we already have?
  8. I think I wish this game was set in the new era.
  9. TFA might be my favorite Star Wars movie, so I like that JJ is coming back. Also would have been happy with someone else, just for the sake of something different though.
  10. I've actually been playing around with the LDD and coming up with modular pieces to buy off of Pick a Brick. That and I've got buckets of legos already, so I'm on board with this idea.
  11. I'm in the same boat. I really like the design of TFA. I know we don't have a lot in the way of ground troops for either the Resistance or the First Order, but if we're being honest, the biggest variety in military units in Star Wars has always been ships. In the starter set there's already a walker pulled from Clone Wars so that the Rebels have something comparable to the Empire's bikes. That's not really a criticism, the walker makes sense, but if they're just gonna have to fill in gaps anyway, there's space for that in the new Era. Plus, it's not like a new wave is gonna come out every month. We're gonna get some new stuff on screen to pull from this December.
  12. Respect for fluffly fun list. I was thinking the same.
  13. I advocated for a very similar thing in another thread. If we ask long enough, maybe we can get it, like those gunboat people.
  14. Just my two cents to keep this thread alive, I really like this idea. Generic commanders would be great. It's a little harder to personalize an army if it always has to be lead by a character from the movies.
