      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

Peter Cushing and his Miniatures

For boys and intelligent girls... So sexist.

Yeah I heard that too and cringed.

 

 

I laughed.  Then when he lit up at the end I thought "Oh God, if they saw him now!". LOL

 

 

You would be surprised at some of the stars names and associated miniatures.  Peter was not and is not alone.

God, I would drop so many tarkin quotes if I were actually tarkin playing his miniatures...

On that sexist note. Anybody know any competitive female players? I play x wing and SWLCG with my wife, but I've never seen or played against any females in tournaments.

There is a games, comics and collectibles store nearby that I enjoy visiting a lot. A few years ago a guy came in and bought some Eldar minis for Warhammer 40K. When he gave the associate his credit card she looked at it, then looked at him...

It was Robin Williams.

Awesome! I managed a store in Seattle a while back, and he came in for a meet and greet at one point. Sadly, I wasn't there, but folks said he was really personable.

Brian May, guitarist with Queen was into collecting GW figures as well. I remember seeing an article showing him painting some. It mentions in the video about HG Wells' book. He was an avid gamer also. There's been a few famous gamers over the years.
