    Master Replicas made 0.45 scale lightsabers back in the early and mid 2000s. I own almost all of them, including a few rare/exclusive ones.

    ausxwing got a reaction from Force Majeure in X-Wing - More than a Game?   
    Been a Star Wars fan since that first viewing in 1977,
    Initially just started collecting the ships as they were the best models in the size I liked. Collected every one from version 1 but never played. when Version 2 was released I thought I'd start playing.
    My first small shop tourney (8 players) was great, they were very welcoming to "this new guy". from there I entered a hyperspace comp, slightly intimidated by the pro players and team shirts that were there. But everyone was so helpful and encouraging to the first timer. I won three out of six games that day, doing stupid moves that surprised players, from that I had guys patting me on the back for beating their mates.

    ausxwing reacted to joeshmoe554 in Rolling and rerolling dice   
    Yes you can.  From the rules reference, "Although dice can be modified by multiple effects, each die cannot be rerolled more than once."
    The restriction is only on the number of times a die can be rerolled.

    ausxwing reacted to Hippie Moosen in Are any of last week's 2nd edition releases new?   
    FFG have stated that everything in the conversion kits will eventually be re-released. that should be the same for the two new ones as well. Expect to start seeing ships re-release with some of them only featuring components from the conversion kits (like the Wave 3 Tie Striker and Z-95), and others with new components in addition to what's in the kits.

    ausxwing reacted to Animewarsdude in Putting a Face to the Name: Pilots (Update: Resistance Transport)   
    So figured that some people might be interested in who the pilots are that we fly around and if able what they look like.
    Lets start with Wave 0 and 1.
    Rebels:
    Wedge Antilles, what needs to be said about him? He is famous for being a survivor of the Battle of Yavin, was Red Leader at Endor and helped destroy the second death star, and in Legends was the leader of Rogue Squadron is one of the best pilots around. 

    Luke Skywalker, I think we all know well enough if not might I recommend checking out the OT films. 

    Thane Kyrell, the duotagonist of Lost Stars and a former imperial pilot who defected to the Rebels shortly after meeting Wedge, and a member of Corona Squadron. Lost Stars has additionally been adapted into a manga series that is wrapping up, and is the source of the image. 

    Garven Dreis, he was Red Leader during the Battle of Yavin and Scarrif and in Legends flew for the Republic during the Clone Wars, hence why he is a pilot for the ARC-170.  Though he hasn't been shown to have flown a ARC in the new canon though the old novelization of the first film had him mention flying with Anakin at some point.

    Jek Porkins, mister 'I can hold it' who participated and died during the Battle of Yavin. In the new canon the Resistance apparently also has a flight manuver known as a Porkins Belly Run. 

    Kullbee Sperado was a member of Saw's Partisans and was a background character in Rogue One. Not much else is known about him other than he had a habit of disappearing for periods of time. 

    Biggs Darklighter, is Luke's friend who died at the Battle of Yavin, his cousin flies an E-Wing, and in Legends he was romantically involved with Nera Dantels a B-Wing pilot from 1.0. 

    Leevan Tenza, one of Saw's Partisans with little to nothing really being known about him other than he served with Dodonna before the Galactic Civil War. 

    Edrio Two Tubes, another member of Saw's Partisans and actually flew a U-Wing with Saw during Rebels. 

    Saw Gerrera, the leader of a Rebel cell on Onderon during the Clone Wars, trained by Ahsoka, Anakin, and Captain Rex, lost his sister hardening him into the radical leader of the Partisans. He died during the Death Star's test firing on Jedha. 

    Bodhi Rook, an Imperial defector who knew Galen Erso and tried to deliver the news of the weakness to the Rebels only to end up in Saw's 'care', he died help stealing the Death Star plans on Scarif. 

    Magva Yarro, a woman who attempted to peacefully protest the Empire only to barely survive the Imperials slaughtering them, causing her to join Saw's Partisans.

    Cassian Andor, Rebel spy and agent who will have his own show soon, had a reprogrammed Imperial Security Droid named K2-SO, and died help stealing the Death Star plans. 

    Heff Tobber, the Blue Squadron U-Wing pilot who didn't make it past the shield gate and just flew around providing support during the Battle of Scarif. 

    Benthic Two Tubes, Edrio's eggmate/twin who was a part of Enfrys Nest's pirates until he ended up joining up with Saw to fight the Empire to get revenge for what the Empire did to his people. 

    Norra Wexley, she flew at the Battle of Endor, joined the New Republic's fighter corps, and is the mother of 'Snap' Wexley. 

    Hoton Salm, he flew at the Battle of Endor as Grey Leader and is mostly bald on the top of his head. 

    Dutch Vander, is Gold Leader and flew at the Battle of Scarif and Battle of Yavin where he was shot down by Vader during his trench run. 

    Evaan Verlaine, she flew at both Scarif and Yavin being the only surviving Y-Wing pilot and along with Leia went to go and protect fellow Alderanians after the Battle of Yavin when they heard news of the Empire hunting them down. 

    Imperials:
    Howlrunner, her real name is Cive Rashon and she flew as the flight leader of Obsidian squadron at Bespin and at the Battle of Endor. LEGENDS

    Scourge Skuto, his real name is Trel Skutu and was a flight leader who respected the aggressive nature of Rebel pilots. LEGENDS

    Mauler Mithel, was one of Vader's wingman during the Battle of Yavin he is the one responsible for panicking and hitting Vader's tie and sending him flying off into space when he died. His son later would be a tractor beam operator on the Chimera, Thrawn's flagship. CANON, though other than his appearance in ANH not much is known.

    Iden Versio, the leader of Inferno Squad a special forces unit until she defected to the Rebels with Del Meeko after Operation Cinder. She later had a daughter with Del Meeko, Zay. 

    Gideon Hask, was a member of Inferno Squad and had a vendetta with Iden and Del after they refused their commander's orders and joined the Rebellion, he went on to join the First Order. 

    Del Meeko, was a member of Inferno Squad, met Luke Skywalker, and defected with Iden Versio and later the two became lovers around the time of the Battle of Jakku, the two having a daughter, Zay. 

    Seyn Marana, she was a member of Inferno Squad that with the others tried to infiltrate the remnants of Saw's Partisans after the Battle of Yavin, after some time she is accused of being a traitor and Iden is forced to 'integrate' her and she commits suicide by throwing herself onto the vibroblade that Iden was holding while saying 'For the Empire' to throw off suspicion on the other members of Inferno Squad so the others could carry out the mission. 

    Valen Rudor, a Tie Fighter pilot that was embarrassed by the Spectres a few times, was to fly a Tie Advanced Prototype, and later took over a bar that was operated by an Ithorian Rebel sympathizer. 
    Added his Armada art but kept his original image for posterity. 

    Night Beast, his real name was Doson Makraven and he flew with Obsidian squadron with his nickname coming from his many curfew violations. LEGENDS

    Wampa, she flew as escort for Vader's shuttle, with her nickname coming from her icy precision. She was created for the Decipher Star Wars CCG and has no unique pilot art.  LEGENDS

    Vader, like Luke does he need any sort of introduction? We all know who he is.

    Maarek Stele, an Imperial pilot from the classic Tie Fighter video game where he flew all sorts of craft. He was an Emperor's Hand. LEGENDS

    Ved Foslo, he is from Lost Stars and was a classmate of Thane Kyrell and Ciena Ree who stole the top of his class rank. He would go on to be a weapon engineer that would make ties more powerful than ever before  after the battle of Jakku *cough* TIE/fo *cough* 

    Zertik Strom, from the original Marvel Star Wars comic run, he  was a sector commander. He ended up dying to his rival former senator Simon Greyshade who ran a gambling satellite. LEGENDS

    Vermeil, Feroph, and Vizier were all created for X-Wing with no other appearance or information about them. 

    Scum:
    Feen Rau, a mandalorian who fought against the Separatists during the Clone Wars alongside the Republic, he and his squadron later kept people, especially Rebels, away from Concordia Dawn but after finding all of his men killed by Gar Saxon he assisted the Rebellion until the Darksaber was found and he pledged himself to the new Mandalore Bo-Katan. 

    Old Teroch, was a mandalorian who sold his services as a mercenary and originates from the 'Age of Rebellion: Friends Like These' book. During the Clone Wars he worked security for the CIS and the Hutts, during the early years of the Empire he fought them multiple times while running escort for his clients, with him becoming a mentor to other Mandalorian scouts and pilots by the time of the Galactic Civil War. LEGENDS

    Kad Solus, is another character from 'Age of Rebellion: Friends like These', he was born a slave on Tatooine and warned mandalorians of a trap his slaver had set ending in him being freed and adopted by the mandalorians where he trained to be a warrior and pilot. There is no image of him yet. LEGENDS

    Joy Rekkoff, he/she seems to be a character made up by FFG with no information about them. 

    Boba Fett, the clone son of Jango Fett who became a bounty hunter, working for various clients but most notably Jabba the Hutt who he delivered a frozen in carbonite Han Solo to. 

    Kath Scarlet, the Captain of the Binayre Pirates and originates from Star Wars: Galaxies. She and her pirates operated in Corellia space usually hiding in the asteroids and then popping out to take their targets by surprise. LEGENDS

    Emon Azzameen, the middle brother of the Azzameen family operated a cargo company, and originates from X-Wing: Alliance. LEGENDS

    Krassis Trelix, a former Imperial supply officer who left and became a slaver, since that is a reasonable job transition (sarcasm). He originates from a short story and has no character art. LEGENDS

    Koshka Frost, seems to be another FFG created character, or at least I couldn't find anything about her. 

    Han Solo, like a few other characters needs no introduction. Though here he is represented by his baby face self. 

    Lando Calrissian, really right up there with Luke and Han and needs little to no introduction, but hey at least here he owns the Falcon until Han goes and gives it a little 'scratch' when he took it for a spin. 

    L3-37, she is a self made pilot droid that added to herself over time, including using astromech droid parts. She was mostly associated with Lando, the two going on adventures until she was damaged and uploaded to the Falcon giving it her navigational data.
