  1. I'm using different scenic bases I made myself (very easy with the right paints, some small stones and scenery bushes). I also crafted some props like pipes or scrap parts from left-over green-stuff (very easy too). For example I gave one group of stormtroopers a Mos Eisley scrap yard themed base and another an Endor forest themed one. Takes maybe 15 minute per base and looks far better than plain gray imo

    New map announced.. Ewoks?!

    You might wanna consider the fact that they decided to go without it for the armada prizes too and there will be more in that game for sure

    what gives me hope though is the fact that in the prices for the winner are flights to the 2020 worlds included, which means one more year of competitive play guaranteed, making it highly likely give us something more

    Agree. It‘s at least suspicious that they put something like this on it. Scouts for imperials (what imperial unique though? Still hoping for inferno squad) and there are a lot of options for scum
  5. A lot. My gaming store offers a painting service charging about $40-60 per miniature and i can‘t imagine he makes lots of profits from it because it‘s so time consuming.

    Yoda, Yay or Nay

    Agree, bring us Mara Jade and stuff like that (i liked Rogue One though :P), but Yoda should still have priority over EU stuff
  7. Not Mel’s but still somewhat on topic: Just got me the Professor Moxi (it’s really Dr. Aphra) file from Skullforge on shapeways.com to try on a friend‘s 3d printer (it‘s actually an industrial printer so I‘m very optimistic). Would you guys be interested in the result?

    Or just a Inferno Squad style special forces team that hunts down important rebel targets. One of which could even be Yoda so win-win

    For scum we could have Dr Evazan (that ugly dude from ep4’s cantina scene who‘s in r1 for a very short time) and his buddy Ponda Baba (Aqualish guy also from ep4). Or some of those priests we can see running around on Jedha (they don‘t have to be bad guys necessarily; take for example the wing guards, those aren’t evil :P) As for prequels stuff: I‘m strongly in favor of finishing galactic civil war stuff up first. There is still so much left they could give us here

    For Stormtroopers and some bases I use the gloss varnish from Citadel. Very thick stuff so it might be worth a try. I suspect that you should do this before priming in any case because plain painting over varnish is a pain. Love that. Pilots for both, rebels and imperials would be very cool stuff. Maybe a pilot hero too. This could work in a post-Endor scenario like in the old X-Wing books. Now I wanna do a home-made campaign like that lol; mix this up with some Thrawn campaign content with Mara Jade and Talon Karrde as scum units and Rukh‘s there too. Glorious Well the heavy troopers kinda look like magma troopers (that‘s why I put them on lava bases). Flametroopers would be awesome though.

    Next to the usual (like scouts) I‘d love to see Dr. Aphra as a scum ally (I mean we got bt1 and 000 already, so why not her too) and something like Inferno Squad as a counterpart to the spectre cell. Another Inquisitor as well as ma boi Tarkin would be very cool too. Else there is always some cool stuff in books. Ciena Ree or Thane Kyrell for example. I‘d take this all over r1 stuff. What generic troops would the imperials have here? An idea could be to add this in a r1 themed box. Have some Scarif tiles and some Mustafar tiles. Then generics could be Shoretroopers.

    not that I would know but I imagine that some parts are rather delicate. take lightsabers for example. Then again if the material is too soft you could do more harm than good (my greenstuff sanding experience in a nutshell lol)

    Smearing tons and tons of paint on it to cover up the grainy surface will make it quite hard to get pretty results. So I guess you gotta live with the surface texture or with a hard time painting

    Thanks, this was most helpful

    Skull Forge Stuff

    So I recently stumbled over those minis and they look very interesting (Aphra and Inferno Squad for the most part for me). What I‘ve seen though while looking through photos online is that some of those custom minis look kinda grainy when painted. I was wondering if this comes due to the material used or if it‘s merely the painter who‘s not really up to Sorastro‘s standard. Anyone experience with it?
