    Hello old friends. I have not played x wing in over a year. Since before 2.0. And to be honest, i miss it. And am thinking about picking it up again. However, i am nevous about the changes from version 1 to 2. Am i going to be disappointed when my old ships or tactics dont work anymore? Basically, how is the learning curve? And does the game still feel alive and active?

    Also, are the Imperials still the best? 😃   well that was a silly question. Of course they are!

    Play Legion instead.

    Is it still optimal to buy two core sets for Clone Wars like we did for the initial game or is it better to one buy and fill out with expansion packs?

     

    Also for someone out of the loop the last 2-3 months, is Clone Wars set in a different era and therefore some units/rules won't be in effect or will it be fully compatible with releases thus far?

    I’m getting one core box and giving away all the CIS specific components to a friend who is also buying a core box and giving me all the Clones specific components.

    Ok,

    So without wanting to buy any more plastic, I am looking for advice on upgrades. I will be playing with:

    1x Rebel Commander (a singly based artillery spotter!)

    2x Rebel Veterans

    2x Mk II Blaster

    3x Tauntaun Riders (anything else would be uncivilized)

    1x Snowspeeder

    So that's 667 points. In addition to the above models, I've got access to the extra personnel models one would expect for the vets, one full set of snow painted Rebel Operatives, and if absolutely necessary two squads of snow painted rebel troopers. I'd like to avoid the grey & white paintjobs and stick to proper Hoth models wherever plausible though. Likewise, I have a snow AT-RT and 3 Atgar Towers, but I hate to give up a Support slot and lose a squad of tauntauns!

    So what upgrade cards would I be overlooking? I don't want to share my ideas lest I influence the answers. I am considering ignoring the tail gun on the snowspeeder, and I can always take a second commander with my grey & white uniformed Rebel Officer model...

    I’ve got more Hoth Rebels if you want them. 2 full squads

  4. Was hoping for some input on this list. I ran a variant of it last night with 4 Z6 squads and only 1 taun taun. It was really good. I’m thinking of dropping Chewy to add more Z6s (even though I hate the Z6, so tired of it). 

     

    Legion HQ

    Title: Test List 
    Faction: rebels 
    Mode: standard 
     

    Commanders: 
    - Leia Organa (90) = 90
    - Han Solo (120) = 120
    Operatives: 
    - Chewbacca (110) = 110
    - Sabine Wren (125) = 125
    Corps: 
    - 2x Rebel Troopers (40) + Z-6 Trooper (22) = 124
    - Rebel Troopers (40) + Rebel Trooper (10) = 50
    Support: 
    - 2x Tauntaun Riders (90) = 180


    Total: 799/800

    I’m liking what I see. Shame I have to say no to it all.... I can’t afford two eras of stuff.

    I can’t either, but I’m still getting the Clones, splitting a core set with a friend. I think I will need to hold off on new X-Wing purchases for a while.

    Looking good !
    No idea what the looked like before but there's are pretty solid.

     

    Red headed alien could do with some eyes though

    I’ve been busy all week. Those eyes will be green or grey soon.

    Made somewhat less exciting by the spoiler, but looks good. I’m in for one when I can fit it into the queue. My Rebels need corps units.

    I’ve got to sell some rebel core units to make room for these units.

    Hi all,

    With Bossk and Sabine arriving this week my question is what poses are you going with?

    Bossk: For me it has to be the grenade pose, it just looks more fun to paint.

    Sabine: I'm thinking no helmet (I really enjoy the challenge of getting faces right), twin pistols, with the helmet on the floor (so I still get to paint it). The Darksaber would be a fun challenge to paint though so I can't quite decide.

    I’m getting 2 Sabine models so I can do multiple poses.

    Just saw some in my local Barnes and Noble.  Sadly, they were missing the one ship I want now.

    Ask. Lots of times it’s in back because there is limited space on the shelf.

    Nope..  Not recognizing that one.  Though in my local store, i see lots of folks using a fishing tackle box,

    like 2eed61dc-bcf0-4e3e-991a-065b5efcc93e_1.9

    or

    5c880973-86f6-44f4-9d23-c6edb7248c24_1.3

     

    The upper one is the one I’m using. Although I’m officially at capacity with it.
