  1. Would be great to have a strategy discussion here. To start off, do people have an opinion on which deployment side they prefer? Map for reference 😉 (click to make bigger): The sides seem pretty similar so, without having played it yet, I think I start with the blue side to have a bit more manuring freedom in my deployment zone due to less blocking terrain.
  2. The 4-player Temple Gardens map from Heart of the Empire is ready! Again thanks to @leacher, @Oslatir, and @fabiofotomoto to thank for their work (roughly respectively) of scanning tiles, cleaning the images, and arranging into the map. It's so big in both directions it doesn't fit in the standard height, I didn't make any PDF strips for it. Also, I pushed this one out a little quicker and experimented with using less of a key. Instead I putting more and larger symbols on the map. Hope it works well for everyone. You can find the full res version and printing instructions on the project website. Speaking of printing, Printi still doesn't have vinyl in stock. 😞 If anyone else has suggestions of other print shops that could provide similar services on vinyl or other materials for reasonable prices, please let me know and I can place a test order.
  3. Helps to see the whole card thanks to cards.boardwars.eu I almost played this back when Nelvaanian Warzone (from Leia) was in rotation because it was useful for getting a group of Troopers over the ice trenches. It's over-costed at 1 point though so it never made the cut.
  4. Yes, won't have time today probably but will do it this weekend for sure. I'll update this post when done. Regen is done. You might want to redownload any you were planning to print as the regeneration touched a few PDFs. PS: FWIW Printi.com vinyl seems to be out of stock right now. I hope this comes back soon otherwise we'll have to find another US-based printer.
  5. @Fightwookies found a mistake in the Tarkin Labs map with the position of the experimental weapons next to the yellow console on the minimap. Sorry that this mistake wasn't caught earlier, but luckily is was symmetric and should have had only a minimal effect on gameplay. Here's the fixed & updated map: Note that the updated map has indicators overlaid onto the main map to help differentiate it from the previous version. I also bumped the text size of the instructions to be the same size as newer printouts since there was plenty of room.

    anybody ever make their own maps?

    And if you want 300DPI assets, all the tiles have been scanned for the Skirmish map project. Many have been edited down to the individual tiles, though other's remain scans. DM me for an invite.

    I didn't make this but here's a 4-player skirmish map made by a certain Mr. or Mrs. Bone Shovel: Death Station Beatdown
  8. The final map from Lothal is ready! 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 Imperial Tower skirmish map from Thrawn's pack ready: (Woah, 2 floors is different! 😳) You can find the full res version and printing instructions on the project website. I've updated all the printable strips for Lothal and the full set of all maps too. JSON metadata is also complete for @kingargyle streaming software. BTW: I got my printouts for some maps on this wave a few weeks ago: the tweaks we made with larger font sizes and on-map indicators are a nice upgrade. Maybe worth upgrading previous maps... someday. As for the 4 player map from HotE, I'm kinda burned out right now but if someone wants to take charge of editing tiles and assembling, you're welcome to get in touch so I can share the files with you.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Fixed (you may need to refresh the page to see). Thanks for the proof-reading.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
