    Device Tokens

    I have the 2.0 Bombs from the Y-Wing expansion, the Rigged Cargo Chute from the Lando's Falcon, and a friend has the Prox Mines from the new Firespray. I can confirm they're all the same size as the 1.0 ones. So the 1.0 bomb tokens are fully legal. Does mean I've gotta go find them in my enourmous bin labeled "1.0 junk" that's shoved in my garage somewhere...

    Future of 1.0?

    I had one of those protein drinks that comes in a little bottle. Not actually that bad of a breakfast, when you're stretched for time.

    Tournament regulations when?

    Oh, I agree. Not trying to be a complainer. Just a little bit surprised in that in the mad rush to get ourselves as much plastic crack as possible, we seem to have left behind two of the three crucial game rules documents (rules, FAQ, and tourney regs).

    Tournament regulations when?

    So... I know there's a lot of stuff about the game itself that we care about, but I still feel like we're missing a core rulebook. I'd like to know this because here in Fort Collins we have a traditional fun tournament held every year in September, and I'd like to have the tournament regulations so we can do that next week. I would like to know what the actual tournament structure is and what the relevant FAQ rulings, etc. are so I can TO that. My tournament would be relatively casual, but I expect others have bigger events and will want to know this soon. There's some official events coming up and I'd like to know how to plan for those, since tournament regulations do affect list effectiveness and relevant strategies to practice. Anyone else sort of annoyed by this?

    That looks really fun. I might have to try it. I'm all-in on the second edition format. Conversion kits are a crutch.

    Tips on painting a TIE Defender

    Unfortunately, I didn't take any in-progress pictures, but there's definitely some more skilled painters than myself who film painting videos... sorry I can't be of more help! If I paint another defender sometime soon, I'll take some pictures of the process. As for brushing, I think it's just something to get used to, that it's going to look bad for a while before it starts looking good. Sometimes it's just about trusting that the journey will lead somewhere fun, rather than trying to force-fit the end result. Painting is definitely more of an art than a science that way!

    More importantly: if you were going to suggest this to that majority of the population who care about lore more than game balance, how would you justify it? I'm thinking TIE Hunter. Replace the config with the following: Solar S-Foils Open (side 1) At the end of the Activation Phase, you may flip this card. Closed (side 2) At the start of the Engagement Phase, you may recover 1 shield. You may not perform attacks. At the end of the Engagement Phase, you may receive 1 stress token to flip this card.

    Tips on painting a TIE Defender

    For my Defender, I used a lot of wash. basically, painted the inside of the panels light blue-grey, then carefully painted the outside frames of the panels and the rest of the model purple. Next, painted windows green and then carefully added metallic details. Then a heavy wash on the insides of the panels with Drakenhof Nightshade (dark blue wash). Washed the model itself with a much lighter coat of Nightshade to bring out details, and then washed the windows with... what's the dark green Citadel one? Something Camoshade... And that's about it. Wash is amazing. It can make even a relatively poor painter like myself capable of painting the Defender and not looking like a moron!

    Poll: what factions will you play?

    Lol I'm in a poll-creating mood today. What factions will you play? Wanted clear answers as to which portions of the population are doing what, so I made a lot of options and only allowed one per person. Please take your time to find one that describes you, and if it's not there, post a response here and tag me @Kieransi with your response. https://strawpoll.com/h8gxfde7

    Where can I find ship icons?

    If you're comfortable with using Publisher or another imaging program, you can create it yourself with the X-Wing Miniatures font. I'm not going to post a link here in case FFG objects, but it is totally legal/open-source and its on GitHub under the same user who made YASB 1.0 (Geordanr).

    Poll: how do you build squads?

    Why? Did you do that and drop your phone in by accident? I've heard rice works to dry it out. Just don't eat the rice afterwards.

    Thought this might be fun in the madness surrounding official app release. https://strawpoll.com/fr1f44gy
