  1. You may laugh but I have a diploma in mechatronics and love technology and building computers etc... But I am (on purpose) well behind in these social media and streaming type things. I try to spend my other free time with the kids and outdoors walking and mountain biking. I have never listened to a podcast and I've been online since like mid 90s haha. Is it also available on YouTube? Or is this audio only? laugh away!
  2. Cool, I'm sure we all are excited for it I am because I like the idea of having such cool models out and to have a theme for a battle. Very thematic. I'm one step ahead on the mats. I got the starfield and planet mats right at the start before we knew what would happen with epic because I knew I wanted to play it! Good times ahead!
  3. Ok thanks for that, a very clear explanation! I will order the epic battles and the huge ships that I actually want. Thanks again guys
  4. Thanks mate, seems quite straightforward then
  5. Hi guys, I am a casual family player of X-wing 2.0. I have been building my collection (of 2.0 and legion) but due to having been very busy with life and work since 2.0 (and legion) came out I have only played the odd game - my intention is to have plenty of options for when things calm down a bit! Anyways, I want some epic ships and I read through a lot of the new news etc... But had a couple of questions because there is the epic battle expansion and epic ships being released at the same time and there is a lot of info to get through for a small time player. *What's the deal with the imperial Raider? It's not really mentioned in the blurb from epic battles (that I can see), is it something to be used only on 3x6 play areas but not in specific scenarios - for example - you just decide to field it or not *Are there proxies for the ships in the epic battles? Or even missions that don't use the large ships? *Are the bigger ships separate from epic battles - so you can use them together or apart depending on how you want to play? Thanks for any simple explanations!
  6. My opinion is that if they did the battle again they would have had lots and lots more ewoks so they appeared to be more of an overwhelming force. O just always got the impression that this was what they were going for but it just didn't quite work out and instead it looked a little too far fetched. I still love this battle for what it is, it's fun and crazy in equal measure and I love to watch it with my kids who also love it. I don't like to take these films far too seriously because they have grown with me and they will grow with my kids. Nothing in this world is perfect and I can't be bothered stressing over it all too much.
  7. I think I'll try this. I've played a couple of games with the Mrs and a couple with a friend, I've been too busy with work and journeys in middle earth to play much x-wing lately. Now the 3 of us kind of know the rules it would it would be wise to go for 200 points and a timer. We have been playing less points and no timer and yes the game seems to drag a little. When we did add more ships the game was a bit more exciting. It does seem reasonable that maybe we shouldn't be trying to destroy every single ship into the wee hours of the night. Thanks
  8. Fair point as well. That does seem to limit it. You can only play one at a time and therefore are no longer at the start of your turn.
  9. Hi guys, we wondered the same thing last night but I had a further question, Is there a limit to how many prepared cards you can use in a turn? We were taking down the troll and I used 2 "leading the charge" prepared cards to allow the Mrs to attack 2x after my first action (which was attack}, when she attacked she also used some of her prepared cards etc... When I used my second action at the end of this I took down the troll. It did feel like we were maybe having too much of an advantage but we had prepared some good cards for an expected battle. Thanks
  10. Or X wing Or legion I think ffg know what they are at by now!
  11. Is there any way to link the expansions in different formats? E.g. I have M.o.M and have the app on my phone and steam. If I did this with JiME would I need to buy 2 copies?
  12. I don't bother listening to the opinions of my co-workers. If it's not alcohol, football and gambling it's a waste of money to them...
  13. This is the best stuff I've come across. I have the thin, the thick and the resin glues for making model cars. It's fantastic stuff. Particularly the flexi thick as it has a little give rather than being very brittle like normal CA. I've dropped a fair few minis while learning to paint them and since I switched to this none have broken off the bases when dropped. I might add it's by vantage modelling solutions
  14. Epic reply. The like button is not big enough! Cheers for that!
  15. That's great to know, it has been a while since I played as the Mrs is back at college but will finish in the summer, I'm trying to get myself sorted for expansions so we can begin to get back in to the game when her studies are done and I would like to have lots of mini's painted on the table when we play! As pointless but cool as that is! I did try the app when it came out and it looked promising, I did not realise that the JR game was also affected by that so it's a good purchase by the sounds of it. Thanks mate!
  16. Much obliged, the suspicion was there as I didn't see a Vader expansion so I thought something was up, maybe I miss read the Luke expansion details. I think I'm going to have a splurge on a whole lot of expansion characters just for the **** of it and get the JR expansion box as well, I'll maybe Order another box and some more characters next time I'm working away as well so I have most of the good expansions and characters for the game as I think my daughter is of the age to start playing with me and the Mrs and the wee man is 3 and has a very very very very (un?) healthy Millennium Falcon obsession and constantly runs around the house belting out the Imperial March. What have we created?!!!
  17. Sorry if this has been asked before, google provided no clear answers and as I'm working offshore my connection won't seem to allow the search function to work properly! Just need a quick answer before I mail my local Shop about ordering some expansions, I haven't played in a while and being away from home I can't check this:# out myself. Is the Luke expansion that was included in the core set the same as the separate expansion pack? Do I gain anything buy purchasing his expansion over what was in the box? Answers much appreciated guys, Thanks
  18. I am a beginner so I don't realise quite how frustrating the app is. However I looked at your post about the update so I opened the app, opened the saved squads page and there I saw, before my eyes... All of my sqauds disappear into oblivion! I hope they come back!! Turns out that I was signed out but the app is frustrating!
  19. That makes sense, almost frustrating for a higher init ship to be killed by a bomb of a lower init ship. thanks
  20. I'm new to the game and find it very difficult to do any damage with bombs in this phase. Was the old way of dropping bombs better in respect of player order or am I missing something? Ta
  21. Haha, even if she wins, she will be punished! Now where is that Leia bikini outfit available for her to play in character ???
  22. Lovely, those are a couple of perfect explanations for a question I found it hard to put into words. Thanks guys. The friendly help on this forum is excellent
