  1. True but I wouldn't want to sound to condencending, and beeing ships they do look decent enough in my opinion.
  2. I wouldn't call the X-Wing paintjobs high quality, they are certainly not bad but not high quality more like around good tabletop standard, depending on how define it.
  3. I know I'm playing miniature wargames for years know, but my comment was about someone saying we are against prepainted miniatures would because we are afraid of change in our little nichte and through this comment I treid to show that I, a miniature wargamer, wouldn't mind well prepainted minis because I play quite a few miniature wargames and I'm a slow painter. And not everyone has a table/board many just go to their local shop or buy a mat.
  4. Nothing yet, but I probably get the core box once it's released.
  5. Gary the Stormtrooper.
  6. In most miniature wargames units have to stay a certain amount of inches away from each other unless they are entering close combat. So this wouldn't be a problem. And i have never heard anyone having such a problem, not even with orcs and I would say it looks bad if one unit has a Hoth base, the next a Endor and another one a Tatooine base. What one could do to differate the bases is have one theme but each squad has their own extra, a little bit of grass, some stones, dropped equipmemt and so one.
  7. I can help a little bit with this, back in the day before Runewars was released someone made a topic about terrain/ table building. And I did provide quite some links. What you find there is about basing (bases and tables) scenery, mats and buildings but these are of course fantasy ones, though some of the linked shops have also sc-fi stuff, you should read the whole thread though because not everthying is collected in the first post. EDIT: Edit beeing european I think quite some of the stuff I linked is from companies in europe so depending where you are it might not be so helpful.
  8. I don't know, if they are the exact same size it technically shouldn't matter, but as said I don't know and I don't care as I don't play tournaments and do basing myself.
  9. I personally would base these miniatures, as already said they will look much better. About how the bases should look like, that's up to you match your/your gaming store table or match it to your story for your army or take something that looks good with your choosen colour scheme, there are many ways to go about this. My first bases were "grassland" bases, sand + brown colours + some grass and here and there a bigger stone, and my only table is a kind of grassland table, but my dwarfs have bases that are all grey with rocks to simulate their mountain home, my Space Wolves have winter bases because their homeplanet is a ice/winter planet and my Vampire Counts have grey bases with snow because the heraldry colour is a light blue/tourquise with red and the bone colour is a greyish blue and the white of the snow looks good with it. And some of my minis have bases that simulate they are fighting in a city. An interesting thing to know would be the size of these bases and howw easy one can remove the miniatures for thsoe that don't want to do basing themselves but want to buy some of the many bases out there.
  10. I know that feeling "That spot which only visible from a certain angle isn't perfect, **** it!!"
  11. Nice stuff, the AT-ST and the Snowspeeder (never knew the real name is airspeeder) are quite nice but getting the same guys in both Trooper expansions as in the core set is a sad thing.
  12. Ah the posibilities, imagine a Fallout Dungeoncrawler or a game where you build Vault and however builds the best (or perhaps most insidious) one wins, a Nuca Cola brewing game and such much more.
  13. Yes that's true the beginnings of the NCR are laid in Fallout 1 and in Fallout 2 the name NCR already exists.
  14. It has been explained in the Runewars thread, in the Legions thread and here. First the X-Wing minis aren't that great, they have a rather basic paintcoat, second ships (or at least the X-Wing/Armada) are easier to paint than infantry. Look at the human sized prepainted Arkham figures, the really do not look good and it would cost more money to produce and so we would have to pay a higher price to get it. And according to someone else some FFG guy was asked why the IA minis are not prepainted at a GenCon or something like that and they thought about it but for whatever reaseon (reason was stated but I don't remember it) they thought it was not feasible.
  15. I do that to and because the people I play against just play for fun it's not that big of a problem for me.
