    Admiral Deathrain got a reaction from TheSpitfired in New Rules Update! Let's talk about it   
    It is a great step, and unlike most I think the entire situation was handled well. Always sticking to the literal rules is the right way. The Archimedes-ruling was stupid, but correct. If those literal sequences go against the intent of effects or create unforeseen side-effects, make the rules more accurate. This chart future-proofs the rules and makes future rules conflicts easier to resolve by yourself.
    I also lament this forum being as dead as it is, I prefer it a lot to the more 'social media-y' environments. Fortunately for the game those are pretty active, so discussion is happening, but yeah...it can be nice here.

    Admiral Deathrain got a reaction from Tokra in International Language Decklist Generator   
    I did a thing! No idea if anyone cares about this, but it fixes something that bothered me (well, at least in an Archon-setting). KeyForge international tournaments are awesome, but the procedure for sharing decklists when players don't know each others languages (have them scan your deck and look at the list on their phone) is a bit clunky and relies on being online. This web-tool generates a PDF with your decklist in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, and Portuguese. Please tell me if I missed a printed language with latin characters, chinese characters are a bit of an issue so they won't be available for a while.

    Just paste your decks master vault link or deck code and click go. A PDF file that you can print out and use to supplement your deck card will be generated for you.

    Great idea, but to really make it shine I'd recommend building some terrain with black lights in it so you can sometimes see the markings as you play!

    I got my Scout Troopers painted up. There's nothing too unusual here--maybe when I get a second unit, I will try an alternate paint scheme.

    Also, on a side note, my 2nd grade daughter has been my constant helper throughout this process. She has probably had some contribution to about half of my figures. She is making a diorama about Ben Franklin for school, and so she decided that she wanted to put her miniature painting skills to use. I found a Ben Franklin look-a-like from Perry Miniatures, and she went to work. This is entirely her doing. I am so proud.

    He's a little small, but maybe we could squeeze him in as a Rebel Commander.

    So for my yearly update here something huge incoming:

    I used black oil paint for the wash and will do some pigment weathering, too. Kinda hate myself for not having used this on my stormtroopers, oil works so well...
    On a side note all minis from the core set are build, so at the rate I'm going I'll be done somewhere around 2025.

    Bait & Switch will not be in the new set, along with other power cards. Other houses will get new power cards. Balance is likely to be different, but not 'perfect'.

    Admiral Deathrain got a reaction from HaphazardNinja in Headroth's wall   
    It is not. The point is that the effect archimedes grants removes creatures earlier than others. The steps are: 
    Multiple ceatures are chosen to be destroyed by an effect simultaneously Destroyed effects are triggered while the cards are still in board (this is the point where the archimedes cascade happens, because the archiving removes the creature from the board within this step) Creatures are removed simultaneously Headroth's Wall doesn't involve step 2 assuming there are no destroyed effects involved (Hexpion on the flank would for example have strenght cascading).

    The Archimedes-ruling isn't applicable here. The crux there is that the destroyed effect he grants specifically removes the creatures from the battlefield.

    Legion players are lucky, I have seen X-Wing, Armada, MTG and Imperial Assault (among others) Regional/National/World's where 90% percent of the field is mirror matches and Legion we have to put up with  a sniper team being about 20-30% of people's list. You do not know how **** it is to see Fat Han or Toilet seats at 6-7 of the top 8 cut tables, or ask IA  players what they think about Spectres.

    How fast it generates Æmber, how well it denies Æmber, how well it deals with large boards, how well it builds boards, in that order of priority.

    Admiral Deathrain reacted to TheSpitfired in Masterplan getting Destroyed. What happens?   
    You aren't going to believe this. I finally got a response. Only took 4 months, although technically the response came to my re-submission of the question from last month.
    "If Masterplan leaves play, the card underneath it is placed in the discard pile."
    For everyone losing sleep daily over this being unresolved, there you go. Rest well tonight!

    Wouldn't worry about it, the face looks very good and the eyes look bloodshot rather than unpainted, which fits rather well.

    Admiral Deathrain got a reaction from Darth Addictus in The struggle for Sullust, my Imperial and Rebel forces! [Now featuring Vader and painting queue regrets!]   
    Welcome to the thread where I share all of my Legion minis! I've chosen to theme them as parties in a conflict taking place on Sullust. Sullust rose against imperial occupation at some point prior to the battle of Endor, for which it served as the fleets staging point as we are all well aware. My forces are the imperial garrison trying to keep the planet in line and the members of the rebel alliance that support the uprising, destined to become a dug in imperial remnant holding on to what little territory they can and fighting against the blatant lies that the emperor would have fallen, and the pieces of rebel military trying to defend the population from brutal retalation strikes.
    I like how this setting offers me flexibility on the timeline, which allows me to include characters like Vader and Luke with fewer headaches, as well as flexibility in narrative with both sides having the upper hand at some point. I especially like the angle of imperial underdogs! I look forward to Veers being able to represent a more generic commanding presence to allow me to explore this further.
    Anyhow, here are some minis (to be expanded):

    Would be difficult to implement into the printing process we know for single cards, but full foil decks could be an awesome thing! Maybe as tournament prize, maybe as something like 1 in 100 decks bought (needs to find a good balance between exclusivity and large enough volume production to make it worth).
