  1. Thanks guys. I had posted this as a starting point for substituting Imperial Assault and Armada battles in lieu of Rebellion combat. However, now I've played Rebellion a couple of times, I'm fine with it as it is! I don't know what all the complaining is about the combat being "broken".

    Is there a FAQ?

    Can you share the link? Thanks!
  3. Brand new to the game. Appreciate some feedback on what number/type of units would be in a "typical" battle in the game. Like, 1-3 Star destroyers, 3-4 tie fighters, 2-3 x-wings, 2-5 ground troops... ? I appreciate the will be quite a diverse range on answers, and that's good! There's a reason behind this question...

    Balanced deck builds

    Done! You can find all the decks here: https://deckbox.org/decks/whi Look for those with "[Balanced Legacy Lists]" in the title, by user "perthling".
  5. I was in a similar boat. Loved the game. Limited people to play with. I just made a list suggesting deck builds so this can be produced as "out of the box" to hook up with friends, like you would for any standard board game. Let me know if you have any suggestions or comments.
  6. So, this living card game is dead... but I write this post as a commentary and quasi-recommendation for those who might be in a similar situation as me. A friend and I played Warhammer Invasion a couple of times in 2015 and I was immediately hooked. The rules are relatively simple, and the game-play is dynamic. A single strategy can't be employed for every game, meaning you have to think outside the box. Balance your resources. Work out how to best defend your zones. Aware the game was being discontinued, I secured myself a copy of everything, and two years later I'm getting around to deck-building. I've trawled through these forums and other websites for deck-building tips, endured the arguments about deck-size (Magic mindsets and probabilities) and have come up with the following. Remember: this isn't a guide to create the most highly competitive decks, but rather multiple balanced decks across the 10 factions (main 6 plus the 4 from Hidden Kingdoms) that you can consider "pre-built" to bring out at game days with mates. 60 cards per deck (to start with) Exclusively use common clan cards, not the neutral cards (again, to start with) and not mixed clans Choose quest and legend(s) cards that share some alignment with regard to strategy 3x same quest 3x same legend, or 2 pairs of 2 legends Units, Supports and Tactics to directly support a small array (2-3) of structure/strategy from the legend/quest 50% (~30 cards) units, comprising: 7 pairs of "first turn cards" (cards that can be played with just 3 resources) 6 pairs of other units 3-4 cards being legends 25% (~15 cards) supports, comprising: 50-75% (6-12) of these being "first turn cards" 75% (10-12) being non-attachments, and ones that provide power Again, mostly pairs of cards 25% (~15 cards) being tactics / quest 3x same quest 6 pairs of tactics (again, consider balance high and low cost cards) Pairs of cards gives some degree of consistency (more than elusive single copies), but also provides more variety for casual play (rather than a competitive trimmed down 50-card deck with the max 3 copies of most effective cards). It will enable employing different strategies / game-play with the one deck. As I've been looking through the cards with all of the above in mind, I'm identifying 2-3 straight-forward synergies between the cards within the clans to focus on, while avoiding situational cards and very specific combos. The above is just a starting point and, as the flavour of the deck dictates, may justify deviating from. e.g. a really crucial card that you might want to max to 3 copies. Or, in the case of Skaven, going with 3s instead of pairs because of the action letting you play for free copies of units already in play. Or increasing deck size to 75 in a high-mill deck. Furthermore, once I get these decks in play (I plan to will host some sessions at our local gaming shop), if I discover any are lacking or significantly weaker than the rest, then I'll drop in the neutral cards to beef them up and/or directly complement the strategy of certain clans' decks. If there's anyone still out there, would love your feedback and any other tips. And I will likely follow up to post the preliminary and then final lists up here for the benefit of others.

    Call the Vanguard question

    Yes, it's a single figure. Not the whole group. (If that's what you were asking?)

    Vinto's "rapid fire" forced attacks

    Interesting. Rules as written, you're probably right. It's inevitable that as the game expands there will be some curious and unintended issues like this. I wouldn't hold out for an FAQ. Common sense should prevail. Ie treat Vinto's ability as "may perform up to two attacks". Just my thoughts. An aside... has anyone not realised Greedo's mission cards are printed upside down? Poor Greedo. Just can't seem to do anything right. At least he's cheap!
  9. New FAQ... can't put those holocams on the blocking terrain square no more. Not even mobile figures.
  10. Check the new FAQ. Card has received an errata so that it"Of No Importance" does still retain some Importance.
  11. How do you bring in Imperial Deployment groups into a Merc army??

    [Jet Troopers] Fly-By

    Well, we have a ruling... "Hi Luke, The second part of Fly-By only awards the bonus movement points after an attack that qualifies to trigger the first part of the ability (within 2 spaces). This relationship between the two effects and the overall ability could definitely be clearer, and I’m looking to get it into the FAQ (though I don’t think it’ll make it into the next release). Thanks for the question. I hope that helps! Todd Michlitsch Game Developer Fantasy Flight Games"

    [Jet Troopers] Fly-By

    I've asked FFG today (before i even knew about this thread). I'm definitely in agreement with the 2 movement points regardless of 2 spaces for blue die. Different conditions, different effects. The card reads: "When you declare an attack," (timing window) "if" (conditional) "the target space is within 2 spaces" (condition), "add 1 blue die to your attack pool" (effect) (full stop, new sentence). "After the attack resolves," (new timing window, and not contingent on the "if" statement in the previous sentence), "gain 2 movement points" (effect).

    Death troopers

    It's called "Zombicide". A great game! You could always blend the two - use Zombicide rules (which are well established, functioning mechanics), sub in Star Wars figures and item cards to get the theme. It's probably more droid swarm ala Attack of the Clones, than stormtroopers. But yeah, might be fun.
  15. Have finished producing the league booklets. I can't upload anything else here (have hit my 0.5mb limit) so I've put a link to a drop box folder to this and my other resources if you want to use any of them: https://tinyurl.com/glegyzp
