  1. Just get me my last two bounty hunters...I'll keep buying IA, FFG. I promise! Of course, I'd probably buy Willrow Hood.

    Wave 12 Wishlist

    Death Squad Commander(s) Zuckuss and 4-LOM Rebel on Tauntaun I'm pretty good after that. I mean, I've bought everything up til now and I'm probably not going to stop any time soon. I still want some droids and civilians for missions.

    Will we see Zuckuss and 4-LOM

    We need Zuckuss and 4-LOM. I'd take Aurra Sing and/or Bane after that, though. I also wouldn't mind a couple more jawas, while we're at it. Pretty much, I'll buy it if FFG releases it. I like having the miniatures for the game.

    Tyrants of Lothal

    Don't get me wrong, I'm much more interested in those than the Ghost crew--but being reasonably demanded figures and thematically un-related, if they were to appear in one wave... t'would worry me a bit.

    Tyrants of Lothal

    I believe it to be a situation where FFG are just preemptively stopping any issues from arising where character X gets an absurd bonus because of an unforeseen interaction. I had the same initial reaction. I'm just happy to have some news coming out, and new things to buy on the way. I'm not going to worry about the long-term health of the game unless the next release is 4-LOM and Zuckuss, a rebel trooper on a tauntaun, and Scout Troopers.

    Yet another painting question thread

    1) There are some very inexpensive minis out there. Reaper's Bones line stands out--often only a couple bucks per figure. 2) No idea. 3) Paint can be tricky. I've heard that repeated "treatment" can sometimes salvage paints. Repeated vigorous shaking, sometimes adding some flow improver, and adding a "heavy" bead/agitator are all part of the process I've read about. But I've read of people being able to revive some of the old Ral Partha or Citadel lines from the 90s. If you go about trying it, I've heard that folks prefer a hematite bead due to it's lack of reactivity with most paints. 4) No idea. 5) You'll have to do the math on that one. Sometimes the mix of colors, paint brush (if any), and/or carrying case isn't worth it. Generally, IMO, you're better off choosing specifically what you want.
  7. We accomplished the last two missions in one night. I figure we started about 6pm, and wound down a little before midnight. Plenty of time for table-talk and analyzing (and re-analyzing) most of our decisions.

    App Update

    You don't have to imagine it: the Gobi Desert can hit -40 in the winter, but usually stays a little "warmer" (but still way below freezing).

    Stripping paint from IA figure

    You might be able to find more detailed in the painting forum, but the general answer is usually "Simple Green." I've not had to strip anything, myself, so can't say how fast/easy Simple Green makes the job.
  10. I'm a Reaper paint devotee as well. The others are all, to the best of my understanding, fine products as well. I also recommend checking out Reaper's forum. There are many skilled painters over there who are happy to help out with advice. One thing about painting, though, is that there are many different styles and everyone has a different level of desired result. Even though I love watching Sorastro's videos and get the occasional bit of inspiration, his style isn't mine (I simply don't have the patience, let alone his eye for colors). So don't feel that you have to mimic any one particular set of results.

    Imperial Officer Colours

    I chose to do two officers in black ("generic" imperial officers to match the card art), and the other as an ISB officer (white tunic, black pants). It just made sense to me that the ISB might represent itself in a situation where there was a high rebel threat.
  12. I recommend going through the painting forum here to start with specific pointers. You can also check any number of forums specifically for painting--usually run by a paint/mini company. Sometimes the forum is pretty specific (only their products), other times it's not. Also, Sorastro. Repeatedly. Watch your prices on the expansion packs (like Boba Fett). Some of them sell out pretty quickly, and then things go nuts online--doubling or tripling the price, but FFG continues to put them back into print--although it may take a little time. As far as storage goes, most of mine is still in the frame and unpunched--but our Imperial Player uses zippered storage bags for just about everything (even his miniatures--it makes me twitch, but I'm the main painter of the group). I know you said you're not quite ready to take the plunge on foam, but there are some "pick and pluck" options out there that are reasonable.

    OLD custom card site

    Was the site in French? If so, Google l'atelier du faucon and select the card creator from the top menu bar. I'm guessing that's the one you want.
  14. Paint all the things. But I would add that I found painting Weiss' AT-ST to be a little tedious. Enough so that I've sidelined the regular AT-ST for now.

    Character Tracker APP feedback

    Hmm....I had another thought the other day while contemplating my character for the next campaign. What about a credit counter (individual share or party pool)?
