  1. I hope I'm not hijacking this into a painting thread, but.. This is a dumb question, but grey wash is different than like... Nuln Oil, right? Will this prevent the whole "I just perfectly and finally got white to appear now time to wash noooesnowitsallgrey" nonsense I keep dealing with? I'm *really* hating white armor at this point, I just can't figure it out. Any recommendations for a good grey wash?
  2. Is not sure if $80 Gladiator is evidence of life or death...
  3. I'm throwing my lot in with team red. Let's consider codytx2's point above: Now, the big problem word here is Armament in the attack range definition, which is up for negotiation. If armament refers to the dice, then team blue wins. If it refers to anti-ship or anti-squadron battery or to hull zone or something other than dice, then red team wins. I highlighted what I believe are the key points here. There is nothing in the first bolded text other than the target must be "within...range". If we define armament as battery type or hull zone then this means within the range of an attack. This has no bearing on dice, inherently, it's just to determine overall range. This is the entire ruler, which denotes an attack range or, given the Onager rules, the ignition based ruler. So, this suggests that all potential dice are gathered in step one, then improper dice are set aside in step 2. If all dice are set aside, then "...For example, at long range a ship can roll only its red attack dice. If the attacking hull zone does not have any red dice, then it cannot perform this attack." Thus, two blue dice would be gathered in step one, turned to red after step one, then selected as appropriate dice in step two for the attack. Admittedly, I want team red to win. biasedimnotbiased.
  4. still sitting at contents verified a week later... 😐
  5. Anybody else order an SSD from Miniature Market? I preordered months ago, now I'm being told that even though the contents are "verified" the stuff hasn't been received by the supplier yet. I swear I've seen other people talking about getting theirs from MM...

    My go at Death Troopers. I don't like green so I did orange, canon have mercy on me Alas, I don't have any gloss varnish atm so not quite done.
  7. So just played a game with Han for the first time and... jeese, against troopers without cover he's just an attrition machine, it seems. I just want to make sure I was doing this correctly, since I don't get a lot of games in and it's been a while. Han shoots a trooper. Gets two hits. No cover, no dodge. That's pretty much it, right? With pierce it would negate the two defense rolls right out, so if Han shoots and hits someone out of cover that's just pretty much a wound? Use gunslinger on another trooper unit, two hits... two more straight out, right? So against these two stormtrooper units, he's pretty much near guaranteed with red dice to down 4 troopers a round at range 2? Now of course, if my students hadn't wandered their troopers out into the middle of an open field in the first place, or used boba fett's blaster shots to try and take out an at-rt, or stuck their snowtroopers on a roof and kept them there the entire game... sigh.
  8. You know, I'm actually curious what the in-lore references are to all these specialist troopers. Do they actually *call* them shoretroopers in the films? Do they call them Sandtroopers? Scout troopers? What's the military designation for all these specialists? I know what the outside lore says, but you know how military folk make up shorthand and nicknames for everything... all these names just sound like nicknames tossed around by grunts around a card table. *ahem*, a short story of the naming of a new canon trooper: "Hey Ted" "Yeah Bill?" "The dude has like, a spike on his head." "Dude" "Totally dude, it is most heinous." "We should like, totally let them know." *In tandem with high five* "Excellent!" Hey, how's it going Spiky Trooper dudes!?"
  9. What opinions do you guys have on dry-brushing the highlights vs. edge highlighting? For mine I feel like doing the drybrushing will save me a lot of time but I'm concerned on the results...
  10. Anyone seen some of the stuff from Multiverse gaming in their lasercut space opera range? I've tried dabbling in making my own lasercut terrain, but nothing I've put together seems as complex as this piece! Anyone ever used it or have experience with it? I'm seriously considering getting this and a few of their other pieces, though shipping from Poland adds some 30% to the cost https://www.multiversegamingterrain.com/spaceport-cantina-p-255.html
  11. I use an army painter brush set, the regiment brush mostly, with Vallejo paints. I know that Vallejo is pretty thick so maybe I'm just having trouble figuring out the right amount to thin, maybe? I'm also starting to wonder if it's got something to do with hand-brushing my primer... maybe I can look into getting into spray instead. Problem is my local climate is dry and cold, I've had bad experiences with frosting last few times I tried.
  12. So FFG sometimes makes stuff available early for events? Does that suggest that the Occupier and Landspeeder will be released soon?
  13. That looks pretty good KommanderKeldoth, one of these days I really need to pick up a compressor for the airbrush I have. Never even used the thing, it just sits in my closet while I brush primer on like a peasant
  14. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Legion-X-34-Landspeeder-Unit-Expansion-FFG/173856511379?hash=item287aa7d593:g:8K0AAOSwcCJcn5Qq Is this out? What is going on? FFG site says this is still in development. I'm confused. Tank? Tank is somewhere? TANK. 🐧
  15. I tried this but it left a really grainy look to it which I didn't care for, ended up just going back over with white. Felt like it took way too long for what this is advocating. I have spent something like... 2 hours each on the troopers i'm doing. In fact, I'm literally at this moment (besides typing :D) going back over a rocket launcher trooper after having tried to drybrush it. Bah, and watching it now she's going over parts of it like i'm doing and her paint is going over smoothly and quickly, how do I DO that!? My paint never goes on that smoothly. UGH this is getting frustrating.
