    Master Wang’s IA Painting

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. Oh wow! The cyborg is a giant! Any chance of a shot of a storm trooper next to a death trooper?

    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.
  5. 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...).

    Wave 12 Wishlist

    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
  7. I’ll be positive and be happy they are aware of the fact some people are annoyed by this. Hopefully, they will eventually provide a solution rather than just an acknowledgment.

    Feldherr foam trays and expansion packs

    How about extras like Alliance Rangers, etc.?
  9. Does anyone have all the expansion packs and all the Feldherr foam trays? I have all the expansions up until the Jawa, Hera, etc. wave. I also have the core set Feldherr trays. Now, I am wondering whether to get the ones for the box expansions I have, but only want to do so if I can also get the figure pack expansion figures into those boxes. Has anyone else gone down this particular storage solution route?

    An ominous figure emerges from the jungle...

    I’ll rephrase: I imagine a sizeable number of users, including myself, would be very happy if there were an option to have the abandoned timeline feature from regular campaign available in the app. (Well, if you like force users and/or melee heroes, you lose the two best weapons.)

    An ominous figure emerges from the jungle...

    The app cries out for a timeline option.
  12. Shouldn't be hard to base it on something thinner, and it is a great pose, but I don't want to buy Legion just to get it. (Plus I still have all my IA figures to paint...)

    Diala’s Lightsaber

    Thanks for the replies. I wonder if such rewards are locked up in the way certain encounters play out or if you do really well in certain missions. So far our mission rewards have been pretty cool equipment, but nothing unique to one character. If my son gets hung up on it, maybe I will let him buy or trade for it.

    Diala’s Lightsaber

    I must have missed this. In the LoA rulebook, you can see her saber’s card on the components page. I do hope it gets added. I have Obi Wan, but don’t want his zombie walking around in any games.

    Diala’s Lightsaber

    Has it become available in anyone’s play through of LoA? I’m playing with my eight-year-old son, who is running Diala and Fenn, and it would be nice if he could get the saber. If anyone knows it comes up, please reveal behind a spoiler. Also, if you remember how, e.g through certain choices in an encounter, that would be very useful.
