    HLC is going to be hard to hit with on that I think.
    I imagine the dial won't change much, so getting many bullseye shots will be rare. I wonder if they will be adding new cannons soon.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there was one in that conversion kit

    right now it might be the least valuable upgrade slot

    I do kinda appreciate that right now there aren't any "must-have" slots or upgrades really.

    Most are pretty situational, but in those situations the upgrades are generally very good.

    You can search ORG053 on Amazon as well. I ordered from there because I had credit, and basically the same price with shipping factored in

    Thanks for the suggestion, @crimsoncoyote ! I put mine together tonight, and it fits into the X-Wing box like a glove.

    For the record, it comfortably holds all the upgrade cards for a core set and 1 each of the 1.0->2.0 boxes released so far.

    Eventually, I think I'll make a Sir Willibald upgrade box to hold my "excessive multiples" (e.g., no, you do not need to bring 8 copies of Crack Shot with you), but that'll wait on him to release his 2.0 designs.

    So all my cards+sleeves currently fit in the two inserts, with a few spares (duplicate unique pilots and upgrades) in a plastic deck box. I have a little room to spare for some more upgrades, but not much. I currently have: the core set, all 3 conversion kits, Lando's Falcon, Fang Fighter, a Y-wing, Saws renegades, and a tie reaper all sleeved in there.

    (I keep meaning to post a picture, but I need to get it under the 2MB mark.)

    Least smooth workflow ever, but on an iPhone you can email yourself the picture, and choose to send it as “Medium” size, then resave it from your email, then post that version.

    I just use imgur. If you change the link to include a lowercase "L" before the .jpg, it will show a lower resolution copy.

    Our scanner saves to jpg, so I just print out the picture and scan it.
    I do not do this.
    My phone sends pictures to dropbox automatically, I open them in Preview on my computer, change resolution, and then upload them.

    Yeah.. I upload to Imgur, then use the "huge thumbnail" setting because it spits out BBCode automatically that links to a high rez version of the pic.

    This is now the most meta picture in my Imgur catalog.

    My friend and I are just about ready to finish up our game of "Heroes of the Arturi Cluster" that we've probably put 12-15 games into so far. I've lost count honestly. We'll probably beat it this year. It's been a lot of fun!

    Also How do you guys like TTS versus Vasal?

    Finally got to play 2.0 rules. T-65 are amazing now.
    Did a simple core game only escalation, but Luke's force powers, tallon, and barrel rolls allowed for some incredible action and maneuvering. Felt like I was flying an interceptor.

    Also found out my T-65 peg piece is cracked. Need to ask for a replacement. Kept falling over.

    Well, TTS's 2.0 implementation is way ahead of Vassal's, for one - it actually works, it's got the ship models, etc., unlike Vassal which is I guess still a work in progress. (ED: See below!)

    Vassal has a lot of useful things built-in, like automatic 180-degree turns, etc. And it allows you to give any movement order to any ship at any time. It has a button that clears actions at the end of each round automatically.

    TTS is much more tightly scripted, so you can only give a ship a movement order by placing the appropriate dial. This is the way you normally end up playing, so it's not a huge issue, but you'll run into annoyances. With Countess Ryad, for instance, I was routinely placing a straight-ahead maneuver and then replacing it with a K-Turn because of her ability. The only K-Turn she has naturally is a 2, so when I was running 3-speed+ K-Turns, I'd need to do the action then manually flip her around, which is more fiddly than it needs to be - unlock the piece of the right click menu, rotate it in-place either off the right click menu or by picking it up and mouse-wheeling, then lock it again off the right-click menu.

    TTS has a way for you to adjust your Tallon Rolls to be either front, neutral, or back, but I can't for the life of me figure out how it's supposed to work.

    ED: Quick addendum to my first point - I just noticed that Vassal recently updated with functional 2.0 stuff! I messed around with it a bit, and it's got a lot more really cool options now. One trick is that it can't spawn a list directly from the FFG squadbuilder, unlike TTS. Also, you no longer use the "Pieces" menu to spawn 2.0 ships; this is not made explicit in the app, only in the documentation (and who reads that???).
