    I really hope to see some clones on spruces, that would be years of fun for me

    I saw a kid get handed a JB poster by who I presume was his parents outside my store today....he tore it in half infront of his horrified parents.....There's hope for our youth yet!

    Word is that after the Clone Wars starter future releases will be hard plastic on sprues.

    I'm glad to see wargaming minis ditching PVC. Even Privateer press is starting to ditch it.

    I guess with the announcement of the Clone Wars sets a bunch of places online are dropping the price of the current core set to about £55. Or roughly the price of 2 squads and a commander on their own.
    basically you get a second commander, 2 squads and 2 support units (AT-RT/Speeder Bikes) plus dice and barricades for free.
    Super good bargain

    Man I went to prime my pathfinders and the spray came out all chalky, I think it was to humid. :( into the alcohol they go for a stripping!.

    I've been trying to step up my basing game but I think i need to add the little tufts of grass for a better effect. They, imo, make bases look good.

    I'm just holding on for the clone wars stuff and the up coming shoretrooper!

    The LGS is running a 500 pt tournament on May 4th, and I'm aiming to win it. I really think I need something else in the bike slot. Evasive Maneuvers feels bad when it only orders one unit, and Pinned Down as the other available 2 pip is similarly crappy. I dunno what to do with that 100 points though without screwing myself command card-wise. I could drop Veers for Krennic and run Death Troopers in the bike slot, but they'd be basically vanilla and I think vanilla DTs are terrible.

    E: actually I couldn't run DTs even if I wanted. Force org chart for the event is
    1 Command
    2-4 Corps
    0-1 Everything Else


    ++ Unlimited (Galactic Empire) [499 Points] ++

    + Commander +

    •General Veers [88 Points]: Emergency Stims

    + Corps +

    Snowtroopers [73 Points]: Flametrooper, Impact Grenades

    Stormtroopers [68 Points]: DLT-19 Stormtrooper

    Stormtroopers [68 Points]: DLT-19 Stormtrooper

    Stormtroopers [68 Points]: DLT-19 Stormtrooper

    + Special Forces +

    Scout Troopers - Strike Team [44 Points]: DLT-19x Sniper

    + Support +

    74-Z Speeder Bikes [90 Points]

    + Command Hand +

    Command Hand: •Ambush, •Maximum Firepower, ••Evasive Maneuvers, ••Push, •••Coordinated Fire, •••Imperial Discipline, ••••Standing Orders

    Core set is on sale in the US for 60$ on Amazon and walmart.... if only they'd ship to Canada.

    It's like 110$ here without tax

    Happy May the 4th!

    I am jealous. There are very few of those. I'd love to paint one.

    Those are a great idea. Legion is the first game to require assembly/painting for a lot of people.

    Really? I know it's Star Wars but there were other things that captured my interest before I got into 40k

    A huge number of people never even thought about mini games until X-Wing/Armada and suddenly having to build/paint minis was a bit of a shock to them. Many at the various stores around me still run bare plastic because having to paint is too daunting.

    This is a good step toward alleviating that, and they chose good, descriptive names for the colors.

    In case anyone was wondering, did some digging and it sounds like they're partnering with Army Painter for those.

    They also have, as a reference, the "normal" name for the colors in the Army Painter line in case you need to restock.

    Knowing now that they're buddying with Army Painter makes this seem like a great idea for new painters. At first I thought it was just FFG trying to get into paints by themselves and I did not have high hopes.

    Army Painter does the D&D paint sets too.

    Rest assured that if a mini company is releasing paints, they almost certainly aren't producing them in-house. I can only think of like 3: Reaper, Scale75, & Andrea.
