    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. 🙂

    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. 😏

    Doing is own skirmish maps easily

    With my work on the Imperial Assault Skirmish Map Project I've got a bunch of high-dpi scans of all the tiles. Many have been edited to remove the puzzle-piece borders. Happy to share them with you or anyone. DM me an email to send an invite to the Google Drive shared folder (Gmail accounts work best here). Also, to be double clear: every existing map is made of core-set tiles, or core-set plus 1 expansion. PS: there are several existing projects to combine X-Wing and IA. I don't have any links handy but be sure too search around for existing work.
  5. Thanks to lots of help editing the HotE B-Side tiles from @lorunks I've updated the map project with 2 new skirmish maps today! We've got the 30th Floor Plaza from the expansion box and Coruscant Back Alleys from Maul's pack. Enjoy their trash-littered & neon-lit beauty: I've also updated the GitHub project page with more links and details including an updated HotE strip with all 4 skirmish maps. As always, let me know if there are any errors. Because I know folks will ask: the 4-player HotE map and the upcoming Lothal map are both is in-the-works. @lorunks has been diligently working on getting the map tiles ready for both of those. I plan to work on them more soon. And @leacher is already planning to scan the Lothal tiles for us, as he did for HotE too. Finally, if you have image-editing skills and want to help out please get in touch. 😀 Thanks!

    Tarkin Initiative Labs: New Skirmish Mat

    Jyn can't use it during Hair Trigger because that's outside of her activation as @a1bert mentioned above.

    Tarkin Initiative Labs: New Skirmish Mat

    @Kalandros, something you might be missing (that others might be too), is that when a figure picks up an experimental weapon they only get to use it once per activation. Meaning, a regular Stormtrooper group of three figures would get one 3-die attack and two 2-die attacks assuming the group one figure had picked up a weapon (and there were no other other effects). At least that's how I read it, quoted below:

    Have Junk Droids been a problem in your local Meta? They weren't popular at Worlds AFAIK.

    Tarkin Initiative Labs: New Skirmish Mat

    Bigger with rules 😉 (click to zoom). Note that it's all Core-set tiles so could enter rotation any time.
  10. A few bits of relevant info: Printi has sale for Memorial Day: 20% off site wide until Wednesday, May 30th (ending at an unspecified time) with coupon code MEMORIALDAY20 No progress on the HotE tiles yet because I've been busy: I'll again solicit help for image editing work finishing up the last of the HotE tiles as well as future expansion tiles. I hope to have a bock of staycation time in July to do some more work on the project. Have a great holiday US-based folks and I hope everyone gets a chance to see Solo! 😀
  11. Since the 4-player maps are of greatly varying size I don't have a pre-created PDF of all of them. You can download the 300 DPI JPGs and combine them as you like to create a PDF to submit to Printi or use the code provided on the website if you have some familiarity with Python. (If anyone an assembled image already let @GottaBadFeelingAboutThis know.) BTW: To get the size in inches you divide the pixel dimensions of the 300 DPI image by 300.
  12. I've updated the project with a spelling correction for Ahsoka on the Uscru Entertainment District map that rotated in to tournament play (thanks @a1bert). I also updated the strip of 3 in-rotation tournament maps to use this new map. See these updates on the main project page. PS: as far as the project goes: no updates on new maps. I took a new job in January that's kept me busy. The B-Side tiles from HotE have been scanned but need to be edited to remove the puzzle pieces before we can build the remaining maps. If you're interested in helping please get in touch via PM.

    KublaCon May 2018

    My partner and I will be at Kubla either way. We'd be happy to play in a tournament if there is one. (She's in the IA NorCal FB group too.)

    Tyrants of Lothal

    It's almost like they came up 3-points short on purpose...
