  1. @Chucknuckle I always appreciate the advice. Have something I want try that is not available via 3rd party, which is how I have arrived at this point. Trust that I looked. Aware of the difficulty. So i can try or shelve the idea. My preference is to try.
  2. Because I am new to hobbying and trying how to learn to do diff things Not about time or money
  3. Wow ... Talk about horrific timing. Agree with all the thoughts ... Probably should have been available from Day One So glad I ran out of primer and did not base my Fleet Troopers
  4. @BigBadAndy ... trust me. I know you are right; After my black primer on white carpet debacle, which is my new guy thread, I am lucky to be alive and have had a small reprieve of painting in the house. The ask on the airbrush ... little aggressive on my part. Conversely ... You miss 100% of the shots you don't take .... shooter gonna shoot ... can't have less than zero ... you get the idea I tried. Shot down before I finished the thought.
  5. @Jman444 ... yes! I have a LARGE master storage container, which I made look nicer, and ... finally ... bought a smaller Plano (the stuff everyone uses) that will fit what I need for an 800 pt game or day of games. I think it was $4 at Walmart. Lesson learned.
  6. @Admiral Deathrain ... agreed Sometimes, a movie can just be a movie. Entertainment. Doesn't need to have an agenda ... you can determine your own definition of agenda in media. It's just a solid movie FFG wise ... yeah, missed opportunity to reveal/release Solo that same weekend. Not a marketing guru ... not my area ... but I feel like there was a moment they failed to capture
  7. While I get Amazon and live in the US's test market for their initial On-Demand offering, I do my best to shop local. I spread my $ between my primary store (90% of game products); old school hobby shop (all paints & modeling stuff) and a much smaller gaming store (super close to home and emergency primer type purchases.) With that I have found ... The smaller of the locations had ... Leia Fleet Troopers Snow Troopers Just sitting on the shelves this past Saturday I was REALLY shocked to see the Snow Troopers and surprised to see the Fleet Troopers. Come to find out this smaller store does not have a designated game night or any participation in the formal FFG events. ZERO Legion traffic. Maybe, you can find some items at an out of the way, smaller retailer? My primary store? If you don't pre-order and or are there when they put it on the shelves, you're not getting it.
  8. @Jman444 and @TylerTT ... have the sleeves and storage. Guess I worded it poorly. It's the sheer volume of tokens required to play and, then, in game movement/management of said tokens. Getting used to it and would think some sort of digital "scoreboard" could be applied. Maybe it is just me and my in-game OCD
  9. Take a single model ... Try Simple Green Leave it for 1-2 hours Take a soft tooth brush; gently run the brush over the model, while running it under just warm water See if it takes a little off. Don't force it Then, put it back in the Simple Green. Leave for a little bit. Take a little more off. If it was a non-acrylic spray paint, then I am not sure if this works. If it was an acrylic paint, it should work. Gentle; patient and don't go all-in with every model in the solution. Oh, and don't let it sit for days on end, while thinking that will make it cleaner. Been to this movie. Ruined a model. Lessons learned. Try to pass it on.
  10. @Mr Tough Guy ... noted and thank you That styrene is so thin that, if you did not say anything, nobody would notice. But ... you sort of have to go lowest common denominator/worst case with something like that ... zero fun/all rules type person across from you or in the TO slot I considered sanding. My idea, though, would also require making additional marks/notations in the base. Thus, the styrene concept. Now, cutting that stuff into 1" circles ... yeah ... not easy. Bought one of these ... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BK7NWC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And not helpful at that small of a radius. Moving onto an EZ Hole Punch. Just not sure if it will punch styrene.
  11. Ok ... So I ordered this variety back of Evergreen Styrene, as I have some ideas and want to try working with plastic card There are sheets the same thinness of paper. Meanwhile, the bases have that molded texture. I did a test if pva/water to see, if ligbtly applied, it would level the tops of the bases. Didn’t work. So ... Would a layer of plastic card that thin make the bases illegal, if placed on top to create a flat surface?
  12. With the sniper coming via the Rebel expansion ... need the spotter/forward observer it reads like game mechanics are accounting for a recon type aspect with those units, which is pretty cool The more of these types of adds to both Imps\Rebs the less frequency of 2 AT-ST or 3 AT-RT armies. I think play style and army creation greatly enhanced and varied at that point
  13. It’s worth it. There’s a few older threads that did all the math. Saves considerable money and, thus far, FFG staying true to word that all cards available to both sides in expansions.
  14. I just wish i had time to play and paint. This thing called work continues to get in the way. My only feedback is the sheer volume of gear ... tokens and cards. I get it and, then again, I think there has to be a better way.
  15. Solid work. My wife has put a hard no on my airbrush purchase. I need indoor space, given I live in south Texas and my garage is about 80-85 daily. Can’t make her understand the tools available to capture the mist. The time saving concept is awesome
