  1. I added doors (though not to the printable strips yet, I'll pick up those changes in the next Lothal map generation). You may need to refresh the page to see changes here. Interestingly, the door between the outdoor and indoor areas is incorrectly placed in the middle of a space (see picture). @a1bert and I agreed it made more sense moved towards the indoor area so I did so on my map. LMK if there's an official ruling that moves it elsewhere though.
  2. Again thanks to scans from @leacher and @Oslatir along with lots of image editing work from @lorunks and particularly @fabiofotomoto I’m pleased to have a version of the Devaron Garrioson skirmish map from Sabine and Zeb's pack ready: (Nice compact map 😀) You can find the full res version and printing instructions on the project website. I also updated the printable strips so you can print the current-ish tournament rotation of Uscru-Tarkin-Lothal as well as the 4 current Lothal-wave maps (only 1 more Lothal maps to create). @Isnigu, in the Lothal wave I increased the font size for the rules. I'm waiting for my prints to arrive soon to see how it turns out, but let me know if it helps if you have before/after to compare.
  3. Fixed (you may need to refresh the page to see). Thanks for the proof-reading.
  4. Again thanks to scans from @leacher and @Oslatir along with lots of image editing work from @lorunks and particularly @fabiofotomoto I’m pleased to have a version of the Lothal Spaceport skirmish map ready: (I was able to crunch this into a narrow size so folks can save a bit of money on prints.) You can find the full res version and printing instructions on the project website. I also updated the printable strips so you can print the current-ish tournament rotation of Uscru-Tarkin-Lothal as well as the 3 current Lothal-wave maps (though there are 2 more Lothal maps to create still). Printi (for USA) and PixArtPrinting (for EU & rest of the world) both have Black Friday sales with about 30% discounts, so now is a great time to order. Check the details on each site but generally it look like PixArt ends on November 25th and Printi goes for a few more days ending on the 27th. (You might also try coupon code TRYPRINTI15 on Printi for an additional 15% off, just worked for me). @robertpolson 4-Player from HotE is not being actively worked on but I still plan to do it when I have some free time after the Lothal maps are complete.
  5. Again thanks to scans from @leacher and @Oslatir along with lots of image editing work from @lorunks and particularly @fabiofotomoto I’m pleased to have a version of the Lothal Battlefront skirmish map ready: (Bit of a weird layout on this one because of it's size, but it should work fine like this.) You can find the full res version and printing instructions on the project website. I have not updated the printable strips yet, but will do so once the rest of this wave is ready (you can also generate your own printable strips with the Python code). I did update the table of all maps on the main page as well as the JSON mapping for @kingargyle's streaming software.
  6. Thanks to scans from @leacher and @Oslatir along with lots of image editing work from @lorunks and @fabiofotomoto I’m pleased to have a version of the Lothal Wastes skirmish map ready: You can find the full res version and printing instructions on the project website. I have not updated the printable strips yet, but will do so once the rest of this wave is ready which @fabiofotomoto is working on presently (you can also generate your own printable strips with the Python code). We've made a few tweaks to the layout on this map including small symbols on the full-size map to help with setup. Please let me know if you have pro/con thoughts on these updates. The plan is to continue with these changes for the rest of the Lothal wave.

    An Ode to Rebel Graffiti

    FWIW: Splinter Cell seems designed to address 3 issues in order to make the all-Spectre list competitive: Lack of Trait Synergy Lack of Focus/Move-other-figure support Limit of 6 activations I think that this list-assist was needed and I'm hoping that having a straightforward & thematic list helps bring new players to the skirmish game. However, the degree to which it accomplices this while maintaining an appropriate power levels for both stray Spectres and the Spectre list as a whole is something that's going to take the community a few months to really iron out.

    Death Troopers. Thoughts so far?

    Yeah I know. It's kind of a nonbo, but there's still plenty of room in your list for other Troopers & Leaders. I was surprised heavies didn't get a mention here already. To be clear: I'm not saying this is a tier 1 strategy but I think it's one of the best uses of the power tokens eDTs hand out. Blast 2 is really good (so good they had to take it off the Rebel Sabs).

    Death Troopers. Thoughts so far?

    What about pairing eDT with eHeavy Stormtroopers to give out surges to the Heavies? There was a winning strategy like this using Blaise to hide them for a while but eDT's are more reliable giving Surge Power Tokens than Blaise ability to hide Troopers. Heavies have 2 good surges (2 dmg & Blast 2) and but low chance to roll them off of Blue Red attack.
  10. I can scan them once I get my copy but to get the ball rolling I could use scans from someone else. @IndyPendant If you can fit the cardboard sheet fully on the scanner bed it could work. You could just send me a sample that I could compare to the existing scans from the core set. I'll pm you a place to upload if you have time to try it. Thanks. I heard back from @leacher he's waiting for his copy and will scan and upload once it arrives. Yay! Thanks all. Update for November 2018: tiles are scanned but maps still need to be built. Probably won't happen until winter break in December.
  11. I don't have my own copy of Lothal yet (waiting for a friend to paint it). I was hoping @leacher would be able to scan the tiles as he generously did last time, but I haven't heard from him recently. If anyone else has access to a flatbed scanner they could help out by scanning the Lothal map tiles at 600 DPI. The catch is that it cuts down a lot of work if the tiles are scanned before they're punched out of the cardboard (then you can use the corner of the flatbed scanner to keep them at a constant & straight angle and avoid having to rotate them later, plus the bleed helps the later retouching). If you can help out please pm me. I can give you a place to upload the scans. Thanks.
  12. @karatechop Nice. I'm in the area, but don't have time for campaign much. I do like to skirmish though, and we're always trying to get new people to come out to the events. If you and your group eventually wants to try Skirmish let me know. ?

    Gencon North America championship

    Yeah, I heard this list was in the final game. WTF?

    How good would the whole Rebels gang be?

    Neat: I haven't seen a lot of the show, so it was good to hear that perspective. ?

    How good would the whole Rebels gang be?

    It would be cool if there was a better thematic use for those remaining 3 points than just shoving in Gideon. Maybe something they'll think about in the future. ?
