  1. @SirCormac, Vader seemed pretty competitive to me in this game: I realize it's just one game, but it's something we can look at versus just theorycrafting. It's also a good example of how to run Vader effectively.
  2. I collect, paint, and play both factions (whatever faction my opponent doesn't want to play). I also supply the game mat and make all the terrain. This enables me to play way more games than if I had only one faction ready to go. Like @TauntaunScout I do not play mirror matches and prefer to play with painted armies whenever possible. I must admit that not all my terrain is 100% finished however. I will be skipping all Clone Wars related stuff. I dislike the Prequels and so I'm not interested in building up the new factions and playing them. I'm happy because as the slowdown of Rebels/Empire releases I should be able to catch up on my painting much more quickly. Maybe even finish more terrain! And then, maybe, I can paint my Kill Teams...
  3. I'm a little confused by this entry. If I activate Luke and perform TWO move actions with him, he still only gets to use his Jump card action ONCE, correct? This update is just letting me know if another affect grants Luke a move action, he could use the Jump card action?
  4. Here's a list I ran for 2 casual games (I won both games). Han, Leia & T-47 (798){9} Leia Organa [90](108) Commanding Presence [10] Emergency Stims [8] Han Solo [120](128) Emergency Stims [8] Fleet Troopers [44](67) Scatter Gun Trooper [23] Rebel Troopers [40](62) x5 Z-6 Trooper [22] T-47 Airspeeder [175](185) Long-Range Comlink [10] Commands 1) Ambush, Coordinated Bombardment 2) No Time for Sorrows, Push 3) Change of Plans, Som. Has to Save Our Skins 4) Standing Orders Deployments Advanced Positions, Battle Lines, Disarray, Major Offensive Objectives Intercept the Transmissions, Key Positions, Recover the Supplies, Sabotage the Moisture Vaporators Conditions Clear Conditions, Hostile Environment, Limited Visibility, Minefield
  5. I keep getting sucked in to these discussions because the T-47 is probably my favorite flying vehicle in the franchise, so I have a strong personal bias here. I enjoy flying them and will sometimes squeeze two in my games when I'm feeling saucy. That said, I think the "T-47 sucks" threads kind of miss the point. Here's why... I remember listening to an interview with Alex Davy where he talked about some of the general concepts they keep in mind when designing Legion. He specifically mentioned the three different types of gamers from MtG: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/making-magic/timmy-johnny-and-spike-2013-12-03 Summary Timmy likes to blow things up with big things Johnny likes army building and cool combos Spike likes competing in tournaments So keeping this framework in mind, it's my hypothesis that vehicles are designed for the Timmy type of player, someone who wants to see big things on the game board and has fun blowing things up with them. Because of this, they are--and will mostly likely always be--a bad choice for a competitive list. They are not designed for Spikes. This does not make them "bad" however! They are working as intended: drawing in players who like playing with Star Wars vehicles (the Timmys). So to sum up, I have no problem admitting that the T-47 is bad in the competitive scene (so are Darth Vader, the Emperor, the AT-ST, and any other expensive unit for that matter); however I do think that the complaints against them are a bit off the mark. It's like folks are buying sports cars and then complaining about the lack of cargo space.
  6. Yep. Same here. I provide my opponent a bag but I would understand if s/he prefers using a stack since it's per the RAW. I don't like it when players fidget with their stack, continuously shuffling it while they play. It shouldn't bother me, but it does.
  7. Haha...I just ask them for some.
  8. If you're trying to save money, you can: 1) Use empty egg cartons to store your small based minis 2) Use empty Starbucks drink holders to hold your medium-based minis (rubber band one on top of the other). Make sure you don't crush your AT-RT antennae! I haven't found a cheap/easy/homemade thing yet for large-based models.
  9. Ahhh...okay. I see on the card it says to Ready it. Thank you!
  10. Just want to confirm my understanding of these to exhaust upgrade cards. If Leia exhausts Improvised Orders, I cannot Ready that card until Leia performs a Recover action, correct? Same goes for HQ Uplink? RRG Quote:
  11. The guys from Masters of the Fleet got me into Legion. I originally followed them to learn how to play Star Wars Armada. When the branched into Legion, I was skeptical, but seeing the models and game mechanics got me hooked. Good luck!
  12. I dislike the incorrect use of apostrophe's.
  13. @Qark offers some very good advice on how to fly the T-47s. Thanks for sharing it. I flew them for the first time last Friday and limited experience with them jibes exactly with what you're saying. What do folks think about including Pathfinders and Jyn in a list like this? The idea being that you can deploy them in the flight path of the T-47s to take some heat off of them. It brings you down to 8 activations though. Is there a huge difference between 8 and 9? Using Han is very interesting.
  14. I'm painting both factions because I basically supply everything when I host games. I've faced burnout a few times. I think taking mini-breaks can also help reduce burnout. I find if I put down the paint brush for a week or so I can jump back in with renewed vigor. I've got to be careful however, because a week or so off and easily escalate into a month. And then it's harder to get back into it. Agree with @Caimheul1313 about working on different things. I'll sometimes jump into terrain as a change of pace. Or make card organizers, token holders, a dice tray, something I can use for my game that isn't painting miniatures. Buying a new paintbrush/paints can help provide motivation to paint. Keeping my work area clean and organized helps me stay motivated (I don't know why). A really nice motivator for me is playing with the miniatures I've painted! I enjoy the hobby aspects of this game but playing is much more fun for me. So seeing my stuff on the table is a physical reminder that the work is worth it. I'm no Sorastro, but it's nice to get complements on my miniatures, even if I know they are pretty much tabletop standard. Lastly, I'd say take the time and make good pictures of your miniatures. Post them. It seems the feedback is usually very positive. You've got a whole community of folks out there who are as excited about the hobby as you are. Feed off their energy!
