  1. Okay, that makes sense, in effect you're having one set per player. However people who need multiple sets of the cards for a single player....that's just.....that's a little close to hoarding behavior, ya know. Does each of your armies have discreet collections of upgrade cards that you cannot cross pollinate?
  2. I'm confused as to why you need two copies of the battle cards. I mean, okay, you have a friend over to play and they make an army and you can both use these cards.... Which even then after you figured out who won the bid you're only using one copy of the cards..... But please explain to me why you feel the need to bring two copies of any battle card to a tournament where you are presumably playing one army the whole time; because I am really not following you.
  3. Why would you need two for a tournament? Both players use the same supply deck.
  4. It's both. Toydarians from Toydaria. Nemoidians from Cato Nemodia Terrans from Terra (aka earth) Vulcans from Vulcan Scandanvians from Scandanavia and on and on and on
  5. That is unfortunate, as it gives the imperial players a glaring advantage over the other three factions.
  6. Bigger base = bigger move and you can't target the hostage holder in round 1. Also, notched base. Mortars are a significantly lower target profile. Also 3 Health, 2 courage.
  7. Mark them clearly visible (paint on the chest like an actual B1 while nothing else in the squad has such a marker) You'll be fine.
  8. Can I use a detachment as my hostage exchange unit? Card says to place a corps unit prior to deployment. Detachments are a corps unit.
  9. The answer you seek is right here (measured from the bottom of the base, so take that into account)
  10. The only problem with this is how it works with the LOS hash mark. Kneeling, crouching or otherwise not upright models would receive a defensive advantage while also getting an offensive advantage for being able to fire from a position above the eyes on the model. I think creating a "small" template for astromechs, pit droids, ewoks, jawas, ugnauts and such would be a good idea down the road (say 30mmx27mm), which according to my calipers would keep them from fully hiding behind a barricade anyway. I do think small (not crouching) units should get a defensive advantage, but lets keep in mind that they're not as invisible as you might think they are. R2-D2: 27mm R4 (Imp Specialists): 30.25mm R5(Reb Specialists): 29mm (from top of dome) 32.25mm (from top of periscope) Rebel Sniper: 35.75mm Imperial Sniper: 34mm FFG Barricade: 26mm (middle) 28.5mm (sides) Astromechs clearly visible behind a barricade R2 can, from the exact right angle, hide behind the sides of a barricade completely, but it's a very small blind spot for attackers. Even then any unit with more than one mini will be able to get around the angle for a shot.
  11. I'm sticking with that your misunderstanding of the way the template is to be orientated is willful on your part. From the article: With that in mind, the physical trooper miniatures themselves will no longer factor into competitive line of sight rules. Instead, we have created a silhouette representing a universal standard trooper size, designed to be placed against and behind a trooper’s base to determine line of sight to and from that miniature. Just so we're clear, because the orange handle bits protrude out from the side, they will interfere with the template being placed "against" most models in they way you suggest. You also refuse to acknowledge that they provided two pictures pictures that clearly show how the template is to be orientated against a mode, one of them clearly showing how its width is the same as a small base diameter, and their two sample templates to print off also clearly show the silhouette of a B1 Battle Droid indicating the orientation. The idea of a target practice silhouette is pretty universal in our culture (or at least those cultures that also play war games about space wars) and anyone who tried to make a serious claim that this template can be placed with only the thinnest side adjacent to the model (or rotated 90 degrees, or laid flat on the ground, or anything else) would be viewed as operating with malicious intent. I have complained loudly about lack of clarity in FFG rules, but you're not arguing from a position of good faith here.
  12. Meh, the figurative literal was good enough for Mark Twain, Jane Austen, Vladamir Nabakov, Charles Dickens, James Joyce, David Foster Wallace and others so maybe misusing objective is objectively, literally, worse. https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/misuse-of-literally
  13. What with these being objective tokens I'm not sure we're allowed to put anything on the carts.
  14. derped that one, didn't I? I completely missed them because I was looking at the grey items.
  15. Some of this is arguing out the kinks before we get into the tournament space.
