  1. Thanks
    Fourtytwo got a reaction from dwaynedauzat in No plans for new physical product for Imperial Assault   
    Imperial Assault: Fourtytwo, help me take this marketing off.
    Fourtytwo: But you'll die.
    Imperial Assault: Nothing can stop that now. Just for once, let me look at you with my own eyes.
    Fourtytwo, carefully removing all marketing and product development from the game, finally seeing it for what he always believed it was underneath all that - friendly, honest and inspiring.
    Imperial Assault: Now… go, my fan. Leave me.
    Fourtytwo: No, you're staying with me. I'll not leave you here, I gotta save you!
    Imperial Assault: You already have, Fourtytwo. You were right. You were right about me. Tell everybody… you were right!
    Fourtytwo: IA! I won't leave you!
    And then, Imperial Assault dies, and a single tear runs down Fourtytwo's cheek as he bows his head in sadness.

    I've recently started to touch up some of my older paint jobs in order to bring all my minis for IA to the same level. The first among these is Darth Vader - I improved the reflections of the lightsaber on his suit in accordance with the reflective properties of the different materials of Vader's suit. The challenge here was to create a strong effect without making the OSL overpower the miniature. I also improved the glints on the very reflective armour parts and the intensity of the lightsaber-blade.

    I guess that happens when your mental concept of 'gaming' and 'playing a game' calcifies into 'having a chance to win at highly competetive "gaming" events'. IA is a "really pretty broken game" only from a pretty narrow point of view. Are you still able to play game with friends, or does everything revolve around competition and META? I'm honestly curious, because the way you worded your post makes me worry you are no longer able to do the former.

    I feel I've got to defend skirmish a bit here.  Yes it started as an afterthought, and yes Spectre was a mis-step (which happened to come at the worst time, just as they stopped releasing content), but by and large they've actually done a pretty great job making the game fun, interesting and competitive.  The pre-Spectre meta was absolutely fantastic, and if they'd kept it up with regular additions of things like Thrawn, Hondo and Loth-Cats I don't see any reason why it couldn't have continued to be great.
     
    The problem with skirmish, IMO, has always been a problem with their marketing/sales/OP departments, not with the game design.  The game itself has been fantastic, it's just never received the regular updates and support that a competitive game needs to grow.

    I've started digitally creating tiles for completely new environments. Here's a low-res example of a work-in-progress which still needs a bit more detail and texture:

    Star Wars Miniatures, Bounty Hunters Expansion, figure 17/60 - you have good chances finding it for sale on eBay.

    Hahaha, I was looking at the pic thinking "yeah that looks great, I should definitely try to improve my Vader mini as well.  Maybe I can get it halfway as nice as this one" and then I noticed the caption said "before"...
    "After" looks amazing.

    I will! 
    I've painted Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight two weeks ago. It's currently going a bit slower with my Imperial Assault painting, since I've also started painting some X-wing and Y-wing for X-wing Miniatures, but I will continue painting more Imperial Assault minis, because it's my favorite Star Wars game and I just love all the characters.
    Anyway - here's Luke:

     
    Edit: Here are also the first two of a few group shots I'll make:
