  1. I’m excited about this. One-off coop games with friends or at home with my son are far more realistic than campaign or skirmish for now, so YEAH! Also nice to see what they’re doing with the tiles. Lots of potential for other maps: snow, forest, swamp, desert, junkyard, various mixtures. Happy.
  2. I’d take this as a sign the game in general, and skirmish in particular, are not as dead as some have been saying.
  3. Sorry, this might be a daft question, but I don't play Skirmish often. With many things being costed down, what happens to the size of teams? Does the game end up becoming a much larger skirmish?
  4. Considering I’ve recently bought stuff from Amazon, I’d say it is still being reprinted. Amazon’s prices are better than individual sellers’, so Amazon’s stock is usually gone. I mean, Boba Fett is there for $10. That’s a pretty good indication of stock still being produced.
  5. Not sure, but the Germany thread prompted me to get everything I didn’t have, except the evil droid pair, which don’t interest me at this moment.
  6. Well, if you want a really out-there interpretation of there being no plans for new physical content: there are no plans because it is already made! This comment will make me look like an idiot...unless I am right!
  7. This may be the most compelling argument for another big-box (Endor/Death Star-themed) expansion 😂
  8. Maybe I’m just optimistic, but there is hope other physical things will come. For campaign, I’d be quite happy for them to get app campaigns caught up with what we currently have. Skirmish might be in trouble if Legion gets more and more popular, but if another box comes, those card fixes are bound to be in it or the wave associated with it.
  9. I love Imperial Assault and want to read more about why others love it. Please use this thread to post about your favorite parts of IA. *** Please do not post complaints or wish-lists, and so on as there are plenty of threads for those. *** First, it is great being able to play such a game in the Star Wars universe because I grew up loving Star Wars and still love (most of) it now! Second, playing as the Imperial player with access to secret information is a blast. Also, I play to win thematically, so I won't take a Nexu in a Star Destroyer, but I won't go easy on the rebels with the resources I do take. Die rebel scum! Third, the app rocks. It lets me play cooperatively with my 9-year old son. We get to run around shooting stormtroopers together and generally having a great time. Thanks FFG!
  10. So... I finally began painting, or rather, priming. Back when I used to paint, I undercoated in black or white paint, but now I’m priming in a primer. I don’t know if such things always existed and I painted under a rock, or if they are a relatively new thing, but heck, that was not much fun. I just spent about two hours turning my grey storm troopers into a lighter color grey that looks messy, which the internet says is fine. Why no spray can? Temperature, space,can’t go outside as I will probably always paint at night. Anyway, they are done now, and it has made me quite aware of the details on the figures at least. Now to let them cure. Hopefully, when that is done, I won’t find the detail has all vanished - there was some worrying pooling, but apparently this stuff contracts as it dries... The above was posted in the early hours of the morning, so now adding that I primed using Vallejo Grey Surface Primer. Lots of scary stuff online about this, but it was the available brush on option I could easily get. About eight hours after priming, the figures are looking okay. Maybe there was a little pooling around the backpacks of two of the heavy stormtroopers, a mouth grill of one regular trooper, and the boot of an E-Web, but I’m not sure if my eyes aren’t just seeing problems because of the stuff I read online. Will leave them for another day or so before putting some base coats on. If I can’t see the details, maybe I will strip the primer.
  11. Thanks. Given the difference in stance, that’s maybe not a terrible difference. Plus, them being a higher level trooper, I can understand them being a little bulkier.
  12. Oh wow! The cyborg is a giant! Any chance of a shot of a storm trooper next to a death trooper?
  13. The ideas are great. I have time to think as my Games Workshop was closed. I did go and look a Vallejo paints in a modeling shop, so am now pondering price and familiarity (I know GW’s stuff, but Vallejo is so much cheaper here in Japan). I’m also thinking about brushes as my unused-in-years ones look like they need replacing. I also realized I need to give thought to post-painting storage.
  14. So, I haven’t painted anything for over 5 years (last was a converted Blood Bowl orc team), but with my children getting older and my wife hitting the gym several evenings a week, I am starting to find myself with free time. During those five years, I have continued buying games and now have lots of plastic, so I feel a strong urge to paint. Today, I am off to various stores to try and pick up what I will need to do three test stormtroopers. I’ve started this thread to try and maintain motivation as I have everything up until the last two boxes, so I have quite a lot to catch up on (not to mention Zombicide, TMNTs and Mice and Mystics...).
  15. I’d like to see some of the other inquisitors and a campaign set before HotE revolving around an early rebel cell led by a Jedi master that is trying to link with other cells and evade the inquisitors. The Grand Inquisitor would be the main big bad, and Obi Wan would be a reluctant ally. Greedy could also be there. I think the Jedi master would be a constant ally, too, rather than a hero because his/her presence would be required through out. Depending on whether his fate gets confirmed in the comics, I think Quinlan Vos would be great. Or one of the Jedi confirmed killed in those comics. To link things together, I think Bail Organa would also work nicely. So, while this is a very specific wishlist for my hopes for campaign-that-fits-the-wave-7 stuff in, mine is: Fifth Brother Seventh Sister Quinlan Vos Bail Organa
