    Correct me if I’m wrong ‘cause I know you will but I thought on the unboxing video (rebels) they said that docking will be both ways for the Ghost. Docking  and undocking would be different and that included others. Not sure if it included the pup or if that is only like an escape pod for the Hounds tooth

    So this is cool. I wonder if this will open up the prequels now for ships like the Naboo fighter Et al.

    Well they have been gradually been mixing eras with the ARC the Wookiee Gun Ship and this. The pilots and crew are now from before A New Hope. So that’s why maybe it would.

    I doubt it.
    The problem with prequel content is factions.
    The N-1, Ark, Jedi fighters, et al. should be Imperial craft because the Empire is the sucessor to the Republic, but that would chafe with the good/bad guys dynamic. And there's no good place to put the separatists's stuff that most people eager to get republic craft probably also want. 
     
    Clone wars era would require new factions for the Republic and Separatists to be viable products, and we won't see those until after First order and resistance are going strong and probably won't see them unless some of the existing 5 factions get stale from lack of new media set in their era to mine for ships and characters, or alongside new close wars era media to drum up more interest.

    Leevan Tenza makes so much more sense in his 2nd edition incarnation than in 1st.  Gaining evade as a linked action seems legitimately good.

    Kullbee Sperado looks like a ton of fun! Talk about economy! 
    “Can switch the position of his S-foils with lightning-quick reflexes, flipping his Servomotor S-foils upgrade card after performing a barrel roll or boost. This frees him to focus while his S-foils are closed, perform a red boost action, then open his S-foils and prepare to attack, all in a single activation.”

    i think a cool way to get Obi Wan in would be a force token of sorts kind of what is eluded to above. The card could be used to influence a force user by adding a force token above the normal count for a turn then discard.

    Now that I've settled into some Legion creativity after my time painting Armada I thought I would create a thread here.
    I won't be posting too many paint jobs as mine aren't terribly impressive, but I've begun lending my hand to converting the mini's to make my arms unique.
    Plenty more to come (I have some bigs plans for my AT-ST) but here's a taste for now. Stay tuned
     
    Celebration Luke (WIP)
    Pretty surprised I haven't seen a rendition of this out in the world yet.
    One my my favourite outfits. Luke's award ceremony jacket from ANH, and his main outfit in the new Marvel comics.
    The lightsaber blade will be replaced with the neon plastic transparent rod which why it is mostly unpainted.

     
    In order to get Luke's existing outfit to look like the jacket, I built up an overhanging section to extend past the tucked in belt section, and built up the collar and shoulder ribbing jacket details with Green Stuff. This was done after priming as I am indecisive haha
     

     
    Converted Squad Leaders
    Just a basic head swap for my Durosian friend.
    For my Veteran Stormtrooper Captain I removed his head and hollowed it out, and repositioned his arm to be holding it as a helmet (painted battle damage).
    The head was a spare from a friends 40k Marines, and I picked the most Star Wars-y head available ( a little bit of Lobot cybernetics).
    His squad will be a heavily converted squad of veterans left deployed planet-side without support for too long, and gone a little war crazy. 
    Upcoming are decorated heavy weapons specialists, poncho wearing stealth troopers and heavily laden supply experts.

    Never Chewie. You already know what happens if you beat a wookie. 
     
    It is not easy cause you said didn't say characters and there are Natalie Portman, Christopher Lee.  But I am not sure if they would enjoy an armada match (well I guess Lee would enjoy whatever at this point XD). So while I would really like to meet then I would probably play with Samuel L. Jackson who I also would like to meet.

    Christopher Lee tops my list as well. There are so many great people involved with the Star Wars franchise, but Christopher Lee was a truly amazing individual!
    Those of you who picked Sam Jackson, make sure you paint "Bad Mother F*****" on his ISD.

    MRCWING reacted to Sekac in X Wing 2.0, the most expensive version change for a miniature game in the history of gaming?   
    The bunk part is that GW is cheaper to go through edition changes. I play one army only, have not bought any new models for this edition and I have spent $150 to be 8th edition ready. 
    Even if you limit yourself to just the core book and one army book, the absolute minimum is $100. $10 more than the 2.0 starter and one conversion box. 
    There literally is not a way to get through a 40k edition change for less than starting x-wing 2.0.

    MRCWING reacted to skotothalamos in X-Wing Summer 2018 Survival Kit   
    I know everyone is just raring to try out 2.0 (okay, some not as much as others), and it's hard to proxy test stuff when we have no idea what the point costs are. Well, FFG has been nice enough to show off at least 6 full squads in demo games both live and pre-recorded, and the good people of the internet have gathered those images so we can all see what's coming.
    But what if you could play with them now to get a hang of the new systems and ships before they launch? Well, that's what the X-Wing Summer 2018 Survival Kit is all about. I have collected the images of those cards into conveniently printable sheets for you to proxy some games with your friends. This is a live google doc and still a bit of a work in progress, but I will be adding to it as we learn more and I get some more time this weekend (hopefully), but I think it's a decent start.
    Please follow the link if you're interested and let me know what you think!
    Thanks!

    MRCWING reacted to ManateeX in State of the Meta: Figures at Worlds   
    I think most people would agree that they seem to have gotten the hang of skirmish costing with Jabba's realm.  Since that time, by my count, they've released 31 figures (I'm including Iggy, Han, Chewie and Vader in this).  Of those 31, the only ones that weren't played at worlds based on your list are:
    -Gammorean Guards, Rancor, Maul
    -Dewback Rider, 0-0-0
    -Jarrod, Chopper
    So that's 7 out of 31 figures that weren't played (assuming you count the dewback and Terro separately), or 23%.   Better still, I'd personally consider some of those (ePigs, Chopper) to be absolutely viable in competitive play, while things like Jarrod and 0-0-0 probably aren't far off.  None of them are out and out terrible.
     
    So yeah it kind of sucks when you can look at the whole line and say that there are dozens of models that won't ever get played, but we've got to remember that a) they've been working their way through the backlog and giving bumps to the important characters, and b) they've been on a really good streak for the last 2 years.  There are always things that could be improved, but we really are in a good place right now.
