      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Close up images of the Wave 4 ships

FFG has the Wave 4 ships in the display case at the Games Center, so I took my handy dandy camera over.

The entire set of Wave 4 images: https://www.flickr.com/photos/hexis/sets/72157643139942695/

I also got some more images of the huge ships, and a couple of good images of the new X-Wing paint job.

I don't know man, that headhunter looks like it could use a repaint.. that blue stripe down the side looks a little messy.. and. I'm going with a repaint idea I saw a while back. Red and white stripes across the nose, red on the wing tips.. should be easy and fun to do.. 

 

Thanks for the pix Hexis.. that was awesome of you to do.

God I love that transport... but I'm increasingly impressed with the details and quality of the TIE units that are coming out. Not digging the blue on the Z-95 but hey, repainting is part of the fun of this game for me. Thanks for the pics!

I cant wait too play with these!!!

 

 

Though I have seen better artwork versions of the E-wing, the wing looks a little bit to wide and the lasers a bit too small, though that wont stop me from getting 4 to play with! :D

 

And the TIE's are awesome! I love the Phantom!

 

A question, how much articulation is there on the Tantive's turrets? just turning or turning and up and down?

It's all behind glass, so I have not been able to actually touch anything.  Just look at it longingly.

I've a question:

 

How is the E-Wing pilot supposed to get in and out the cockpit without taking out the laser?

 

My own guess is the weapon either turns to the left or right, or can turn upwards. I know it's a bit trivial compared to how cool the model is, but I must know the answer.

The gun is in two pieces. The cockpit slides forward, along with most of the barrel.

I knew there had to be a better explanation than my stupid "barrel sticks up" approach. Thank you.

Good image of the E-Wing with the pilot and astromech access visible:

The astromech cover (with most of the laser) slides back, and the barrel stays on the cockpit top.

I'm sure there are other interpretations/implementations.  It's just a drawing or digital model after all.

Good god....that E-Wing looks like a shortbus X-wing...I hate that design so much.

 

Yeah... I don't like the E-wing design either. That Tie Defender though... Awesome.

Agree, the up close the E-wing looks awful, also why would you design a ship that has a gun blocking your pilots vision?

 

That defender tho, my god its awesome.

 

Something seems a little off about the Phantoms cockpit too but I can't quite place what.

Remember, the Phantom is a two-seater, and people board the fighter from bellow.

They all look great to me. However I think the E-wing, when Dark Horse comics had a go of it design-wise, looked like it could have used something on that top rear fuselage. Maybe a third engine to give it a more aggressive, beefed up look instead of trying to be another slick, lean fighter like the A-wing. They kept it faithful to the design that was already out there, IMO.
