    I proxied CIS this weekend at 500 points and this card along with strict orders made my droids much more effective than they seems otherwise I would say aggressive tactics is pretty good and might get close to an auto include even with commanders like Leia and Veers

    There is no clarification needed it clearly says choose 4 friendly units with faceup order tokens I would say HQ uplink counts, it doesn't say choose up to 4 friendly units issued orders by you. Same as strict orders they just need a faceup order token
  5. Thanks

    This is something that needs clarification, as I see it, the issuing of surge tokens is not directly tied to the issuing of command tokens, other than needing a faceup command token.  This means, that if a unit has a way of getting a command token during the issue orders step, such as through coms relay or HQ uplink, the are available choices for a surge token.   Thus, making the handing out of surge tokens not limited by range.  
    All in all, for 10 points, a useful and versatile card, that can help any army with proper knowledge and planning.

    It's not "regardles of range" because the person issuing the orders has to have the card.

    I don't know, having a surge on some units for defense will increase the survivability of, say the basic stormtrooper, when out in the open and focusing on moving and firing every round.    For 10 points, you can always give out surge tokens, regardless of range.   There will always be a use for that on a lot of units.   It is something that I think will come up a lot, in a game, and will pay for itself the moment it saves a singe stormtrooper from being defeated.

    This is way better for droids than most because they casually hand out 4 tokens and don't surge on offense or defense.
     
    Clones still get good value because they also don't surge on either and can share tokens.
     
    Rebels and Empire more meh as virtually every unit has at least 1 thing they surge on, reducing chances to use the tokens.

    The SITH Fleet
    For a while now Star Wars fans have been reading about, hearing about what’s out in the Unknown Regions and “the Beyond.”  What that means has been kind of a mystery and part of the fun of the sequel trilogy era.  Now today I have some pretty interesting rumors about what all of this actually means and what it might amount to if the rumors are correct.  I should say that many of the things in this article have been corroborated by other tidbits in the past, both public and private. I think a lot of these disparate facts are coming together now.
    The Sith Stormtroopers have been hidden away in the Unknown Regions. It is apparently hellish in those areas.  The Universe is “not entirely stable.” The area is dangerous and full of peril.  Since His Imperial Majesty, The Emperor Palpatine’s death,  the fleet has been dodging gravity wells and surviving in the wilderness of space in the Unknown Regions waiting to be found and to finish their mission.
    This is why Kylo Ren needs the Wayfinder device.  The Sith fleet is the key Kylo Ren needs to unlock Emperor Palpatine’s legacy.   Kylo gets this device from an alien that looks like a spider with an infant’s face that acts as an oracle.   This is sort of a Pandora’s Box for Kylo it seems as he thinks he’s getting himself something powerful that answers to him but Emperor Palpatine is not so willing to share his toys with anyone.   Emperor Palpatine  contingency plans weren’t made to have Darth Vader’s grandson received his inheritance.
    The red Sith Stormtroopers which belong to The Emperor are hidden away inside a massive fleet, probably as a final act so upon his resurrection he could dominate the universe once more. However, the Death Star II wasn’t The Empeor’s last project.   These Star Destroyers are equipped with “planet destroying weapons like the one on the Death Star itself.”  Our buddy at the fantastic Bespin Bulletin is also releasing some images of the Sith Jump Troopers that fly in the Red TIE Fighters that belong to this fleet. These guys eject from their red TIE Fighters and rocket out and continue fighting from what I’ve heard and it all links up to survival in the unknown regions. These guys are not cowards with armor like our heroes are used to dealing with. I was told a few shots from The Clone Wars regarding Mando rocket pack stuff are pretty much reworked for this some of this movie and it is supposedly fantastic. Head over to Bespin Bulletin for his sketches of the troopers when they post in a short while. The questions I’m left with are the designs and how the fleet the survived and procreated 30 plus years later. Are they clones? How did they get their modern amor that matches The First Order’s designs? It seems like all of this fleet business is how we get Palpatine back. My assumption is Kylo doesn’t appreciate the fleet belonging to him but its also how he learns he’s part of a bigger plot to find Emperor Palpatine. My assumption is Snoke told Kylo about the fleet and withheld the reason they were looking for it or didn’t know either. Is Allegiant General Pryde a First Order guy or is he a Sith Fleet guy? When The Sith Fleet returns and unlocks a lot of secrets about Palpatine, is this also how we learn Rey’s connection to Palpatine’s plans?

    I don't know how many we'll be allowed to get.  I won't take more than 1, if that means someone else can't get one - but if by the end of the con, there are extras available, I'll grab as much as I can fit in my luggage.

    I’ll know better once I get it in my hands and popped open. I have some pretty small drill bits for my Dremel (and there are some 0.1mm bits on Amazon) and some pointed punches that might do the trick.
     
    im thinking 8-12 hours of work, give or take, per SSD, so $25/hr would put it at $200-300 on top of cost (which I get a discount on)

    That's a tough call. It really depends on the buyer. For anything over $600 you may as well buy the Korbanth 38" SSD and do a proper light install. Or have one done for you. 

    Personally, I don't know if the fiber optics would look right for the portholes on FFG's SSD. With it being scaled so small almost any hole you tap will look big.

    It did $1.3 Billion world wide, and was the #1 selling DVD/Bluray in 2018.

    Darth Sanguis reacted to R3dReVenge in I really want the First Order (and Resistance) and why they are viable as factions.   
    1. Exactly, except the clones have a plethora of vehicles + Jedi that separate them from the empire. Not to mention the traditional paint scheme varies between clones and the empire. When someone sees Obi on the field, they know exactly what faction they are looking at. 
    2. Do some research and you'll find that majority of the fan base did not enjoy the last few movies. The movies don't feel "star warsy" and they don't feel epic. The fact that my kids find these new star wars movies to be boring is a major red flag. 
    3. The obvious solution is to fill in the blanks, except there are so many blanks to fill in and the design space is going to shrink once the CW factions get multiple corps units. For instance, CIS: horde infantry, Republic: extreme elite infantry, Rebels: light infantry with heavy damage potential, Empire: middle of the ground infantry. Where is the design space for FO and Resistance?
     
    I get some fans really want to see lots of factions, but I think the best approach is to flesh out the CW factions over the next year. And then around next Christmas (Dec 2020), FFG releases "super heavy vehicles" for GAR and CW (AT-AT, AT-TE, etc). These vehicles are only allowed in 1000+ point games due to their high cost. This release makes sense because everyone is going to get excited and the holidays are right around the corner. If we get new factions, it will be in 2021.

    Do some research and you will find a very vocal group of people who don’t like the last jedi. Where there are scientific papers discussing how bots boosted the traffic of conflicting opinions. 
     
    there is no way of knowing how large the group of people who did not like TLJ is. Anecdotes do not apply. 
     
    I bought the $80 dollar godfather board game for $25. Therefore godfather must be a bad movie that no one likes.

    Commenting before the sequel trilogy haters jump all over you
    I wouldn't say its the best (that honor goes to Empire Strikes Back in my not very original opinion), but I thought TLJ was a solid entry in the series.
    I remember I saw it at a midnight showing, me and my friends loved it.  Then I heard about some mixed reactions and decided to go back and see it again right away to really judge it objectively before I read more reviews.  I still loved it, and actually liked it more on second viewing.  I noticed that my friends who initially liked it started to trash talk it more as they were exposed to more negative opinions about it.  I think that there is an element of group think going on.  Certainly there are many who didn't like it right away for one reason or another, and that's fine they are entitled to their opinion, but I also think its become trendy to bash on it.
