  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. It will have the cards and cardboard, but you're still missing a dial right?
  4. 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.

    S-Foils Opening/Closing

    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).

    AnyCubic Photon DLP 3D printer

    I had no clue you could already get this quality for this budget! Well done!

    2.0! Got it from an online seller and...

    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
  8. Did you use the IKEA PS lamp for the death star as base? Or did you make this from the ground up? Great work!

    Triple X Protons

    I flew Luke (supernatural reflexes, protons), Wedge (protons) and Thane on the Dutch Nationals. Normally I fly with Biggs. The reason I decided to swap him for Thane is so I can break formation more easily, also Thane's iniative of 5 can come in handy. His pilot skill is also awesome, especially when Luke and Wedge have just launched their missiles into the target. It's not as overpowered as it seems at first glance. It's a nice list, although it flies very different than with Biggs and astromechs. It's all about the approach, hit hard with your protons at range 3, use Thane to finish targets off. With Biggs I think I could stay enganged longer, with Thane it's better to break off and try another range 3 approach I guess.

    WanouMars Repaints

    Was cool to see your ships in real life on the Dutch Nationals (and play my first ever tournament match against you). Keep up the good work!
  11. Have seen it mentioned here and there, but no seperate topic on the first 4 pages. Please add obstacle selection to the squad builder, or at least when exporting to PDF. I'm going to a tournament this weekend (Dutch Nationals) and there doesn't seem to be an obstacle selection available in the app. So the printable squad lists are worthless for tournament play? Guess I'll just edit the PDF and add them myself, or use this PDF: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/98/61/98615519-2c30-48c0-838d-587567f07045/xwing-squad-sheet-test.pdf This squad builder is mediocre at best in it's current state. Not user friendly and lacking features for casual play, but not compliant with tournament play as well.

    Saw's Renegades Re-release?

    I'm waiting for a 2.0 reprint (rr the current hybird one with updated cards), as the original one had some incorrect/updated texts on the cards. Not that worried about the X-Wing S-Foil quality, as the one I got in the core set is bad too and I don't want to open and close them during play anyway.

    X-Wing second edition

    All ships will be rereleased, with the exception of the 'aces' paint schemes. I can't give advise if you should buy 1st edition, or wait for the 2nd edition rerelease. It's probably a lot cheaper to buy (and convert) 1e edition, over here small ships are on sale at many shops (but former players still ask too much ;)). Seems the retail prices for small ships in second edition have increased by a third or so. I'm waiting for 2nd edition rerelease mostly, as I expect some 'power creep' with upgrade cards and all. Probably others that can give you much better advise, but this is my take on it.

    FFG your app is poor quality

    You're right about that, but I guess this comes down to expectations. FFG made the expectations quite high by calling the app the cornerstone of 2.0 (can't find the exact phrasing). So in my opinion most complaints and suggestions in this forum are perfectly valid. So I have changed my expectations. I don't think FFG will make a squad builder that's suitable for the casual player to fool around with, it's just a tool to generate the PDF you need for tournaments. There's still hope this will improve in the future, as this posts by FFG basically states the following: They were surprised by the issues and lack of funtionality too. Their focus is to fix critical issues first and prioritize other fixes. They will listen to our feedback to create 'the best possible Squad Builder experience'.

    X-Wing Squad Builder Update

    Those are the right kind of questions imo. I don't think the bugs are the biggest problem, but the lack of functionality.
