    It is nice to see a Star Wars game that for once, doesn't trade entirely off it being a Star Wars game. FFG have clearly put a lot of thought into this game, and the products.

    And I remain interested to see how they keep things fresh. Releasing new ships is always fun, but then there's always the risk that some waves will just be better, or indeed worse, than the earlier ones, leading to potential redundant model syndrome. But no sign of that at present!

    there isn't much to do with "unique sculpts", is there? I mean the fighters themselves are more or less set... And unique paintjobs are already being covered in both Aces packs (and the Rebel Transport one afaik?), though there may be event-exclusive ones at some point... who knows? But what keeps you from just immitating them then?

    Well indeed, as long as the cards are made available, or it's literally just a different style/colour of ship. Then you know, cool

    It's also me worrying over precisely nothing at this point

    I'm not worried. And it's not like we are buying into cases of Blind packs either with this game. You know what you are buying and you know whats in the blisters.

    I've taken to doing a few repaints, just my Firesprays to start with. Nothing too dramatic but when I do run both in one game I like that they look like the ships on the cards instead of both having the Slave 1 paint job.

    I'm interested to see if they add any more factions, either pirates or bounty hunters are of course an easy option. How say you ?

    there's nothing really keeping you from playing Pirates/Mercs in friendly games as is... I mean TIE Fighters are incredibly ubiquitous, as are Z95s and to a lesser extent even X and Y; add to that basically all Large ships and you could happily mix and match (changing the names of the pilots obviously or even creating new ones) to represent a decently well equipped band of mercs... just try not to cherry-pick too much and I for one would be more than happy to play against something like that... waddayouthink?

    @Deadlift, do you re-prime the mini's? Or do you repaint straight onto them? I want to repaint my X-Wing's black with red accents.

    Yeah I'd be up for that.

    Especially say a fleet of Z-95s and other 'outdated' ships attempting a raid on a CR-90 or Rebel Transport. The Epic Ships could then have an escort of either faction.

    Even if you insist that the pirates only have non-named pilots (so all XX Squadron pilot etc). Would be something different (says the man yet to actually play the game!)

    And speaking of the CR-90, guess what I just collected from the post team! Woop!

    Had a very quick sneaky peaky in the box - dear lord, this thing is massive, as the actress said to the bishop.

    Shall post some pics up tonight!

    I primed the 1st one which was a good as it was a complete re-paint, but the 2nd one I didn't bother and the paint went on just fine. No issue with paint sticking at all, and I used GW paints too.
