  1. Looks good! I wonder how noticeable those printing lines are from a 'tabletop distance'? So you're skipping episodes 7, 8 and 9 as well? 😁 I quite like the Mandalorian so far. Won't say it's one of the best series, but when it comes to Disney Star Wars I would rank it after Rogue One, but before the new trilogy (I hope Rise of Skywalker will change that!).
  2. Can't say I'm surprised, the app is garbage and it doesn't seem there's any intention to change that. FFG has stated they want to provide "the best possible squad builder experience", but they probably gave up on that shortly after the release of 2.0.
  3. Normally I don't like the Ghost at all, but you made it look awesome!
  4. I haven't been visiting this part of the forum for some time, as I was tired of all the complaints (including my own). So I gave it some time and kept hope the squad builder would improve. In meantime I have played X-Wing, but haven't touched the official Squad Builder until today. In two weeks time the app is available for 6 months. FFG themselves stated that "several critical features were either missing or non-functional", that they "are dedicated to providing you with the best possible Squad Builder experience" and that"you can expect to see immediate and regular updates to the website and mobile apps over the next several days". So I'm wondering what critical features were missing, that have since been added? I can't really see the dedication to create the best possible Squad Building experience, not even remotely. The app gets some updates for new X-Wing content or formats, some minor fixes and that's it. Most of the feedback in this forum is valid, but ignored. I came to the realization that this won't change. This is the level of quality and functionality of the official Squad Builder. Maybe my expectations were too high (I doubt so), but I'm fine with it now. I just use a third party squad builder. Posted this here to see if others are still having hope, because of FFG's claim/goal to bring the best possible Squad Builder experience, or that most of you came to the same conclusion as me (ages ago ;)).
  5. Looks good! Just for future reference, some repaints of the IG-2000 are posted here as well:
  6. I've had the same with the original (very minor) and HotR Falcon. So it's not limited to second edition or scum falcon. When I tried to bend the small connecting peg it came loose, so I could glue it back in. Still not perfect, but much better.
  7. For $9 I would keep it, I pay more for the dice alone 😂 Then you'll have some extra obstacles that aren't in the 2.0 core set and an extra range ruler. Maybe you can even sell the models to somebody that's going to convert to 2.0 or wants them for painting or modification.
  8. It will have the cards and cardboard, but you're still missing a dial right?
  9. I had good results with Vallejo gloss varnish, although I haven't used it for cockpits yet and not on surfaces as big as the Firespray's cockpit. So I might run into the same trouble as you eventually Anyway, I needed about 3 thin layers. Used a little bit of water to let the varnish flow better. Don't know the drying time, but I guess it was about 24 hours. As most of my painting is 'assembly line'. Oh and before I forget; I used a 'matt spray' (army painters) on the whole model before I applied the gloss.
  10. In the tournament games I've played people told me not to flip the cards, but just tell me. In games at my home I use the old target lock tokens to indicate open foils. I think a double sided token would be best. Also to remind the player to declare in time (before activation).
  11. I had no clue you could already get this quality for this budget! Well done!
  12. I'm not a frequent player, but my 1.0 cardboard tokens have been used many times and are still looking good. The 2.0 tokens have been used in 8 casual games and 6 tournament games and many of them look worn. It's of course true that I would have about 100 of shield tokens in 1.0 and now only a couple, so they are used more frequent. Still the component quality is lower than 1.0, even when the alignment is good
  13. Did you use the IKEA PS lamp for the death star as base? Or did you make this from the ground up? Great work!
