    Official Rules Responses

    Rules Question: If you have a leader assigned to a mission, can they be "pulled" from that mission (either pre or post reveal) by special timing action card. For example: Darth Vader is assigned to a mission, the rebel scum attempt to rescue a captured leader and are successful, can I then action Vader with his "It's your Destiny" card to capture one of the rescuers? I assume that if Vader was post mission and in the same system as the rescue that there would be no problem actioning him; but, if Vader had already completed his assigned mission in another system and the rescue occurs, would he be "actionable"? Thanks in advance for the response and I look forward to the Clone Wars version. -W Answer: Hello W, I’m glad you’re enjoying the game! Once a leader is assigned to a mission, they are stuck on that mission until the resolve it or the round ends. You cannot optionally pull a leader from a mission. For the “It is your destiny” card, Vader would need to already be in the system that contains the captured leader. I often times leave Vader in my leader pool so that I can send him to oppose a capture mission (he’ll then be in the system and able to use this action card). I hope this answers your question! - Corey Konieczka VP of Research & Design Fantasy Flight Games
  3. @Drasnighta I finally did you up a Night Brother Gauntlet.

    My Custom black Raider

    Very nice. The details on the solar panels look great. My only recommendation is to dry brush it with a med-dark grey (Dawnstone is what GW recommends). The problem with black is you loose all the model details (launchers, panels, etc) unless the light hits it just right. So, the artist has to artificially highlight those pieces. You can dry brush or layer. I also like your painted base. Good job.

    Squadrons soft nerf

    I really like these ideas. First would be easy to implement via errata but the second would a bit more difficult. Additionally, making point defense universal would be another easy errata. I’ve always wondered why a ship would ignore firing on an immediate threat. WWII footage of naval combat certainly didn’t suggest that’s what happened. Every ship could man every gun. So, to counterbalance all this squad nerfing, add a repair action such that during squadron activation, when in contact with a friendly ship, it may repair one HP. A ship cannot repair more squadrons during a round than its squadron value. For example, a squad can move or shoot or repair if self-activating or repair/move, move/shoot, or repair/shoot if ship-activating/rogue. An ISD2 with EHB could repair a total of 5 squadrons per round. Just my 2 cents. Peace, out.
  8. I wear nitrile gloves during and after washing the subjects. They protect your hands from the harsh chemicals whilst washing and keep oils off the subject while painting. I’m bare skin during the prewash activities (trimming, modding, etc). You can get a box of 100, thin (5 mil) gloves for ~$8. https://m.harborfreight.com/5-mil-nitrile-powder-free-gloves-100-pc-large-68497.html?utm_referrer=direct%2Fnot provided Nitrile is preferred because they don’t react (ie melt) with harsh chemicals and they won’t provoke allergic responses, both of which are issues with latex. Your tiny ships are looking great.

    FFG poll! Vote Armada up!

    No Twitter here either. Could the poll be skewed… maybe?

    Some LED work

    Great work and I like the light box better for what it’s worth. Like you said, it puts the focus on the ship.
  11. Aaand according to some art I just found online, the thing at the back of the fuselage isn’t an engine but an airlock so don’t I look silly 😝. It’s gotta be redone anyway buwahahaha
  12. @Drasnighta, I think I’ll do it just for you! Black is always a challenge to get right anyway. I can always strip that grey and blue one when it gets boring … which just happened lol. It’ll be a test subject to prep for a black ISD.
  13. Thanks! Probably not red. I was thinking blue and green or blue, grey and orange.
  14. Dras is right, your models look really good. He’s also right in that washes should be an intermediate step, not the final. Base, wash, drybrush, details, seal is my progression. If you’re going for washes of specific areas, try pin washing. I use an a old detail brush (tiny point) dab it in the wash then touch it to a panel line. Tilt the model slightly and gravity does the rest. It’s a bit tedious. If you get wash where you don’t want it, quickly clean that brush and dry it with a paper towel then touch it to the puddle of wash you need to get rid of. You can also grab another brush. If the brush doesn’t get it all the first time, quickly clean, dry and touch again. Having a paper towel handy is another option but you loose a lot of control as the towel will soak ALL of it up quickly. Hope that helps.
