COLLECTION DIARY: CHRISTMAS 2014

I hope everyone had a good holiday, and got some fun toys. I did. Here is my Christmas Loot... and BREAKFAST.


With the new rules for the TIE Advanced I grabbed up a second expansion, with a pair of TIE Fighters. A few days after I paid for them they all went out of stock, which is hilarious to me. I am happy to get the first copies of Wave Five too, it is great to have these Large Ships in my collection!


I added a few alternates for some of the important characters, because I am a nerd about some things. I needed a younger Luke for the Falcon crew, and I also wanted a more badass Vader to field with the new improved TIE Advanced. I also managed to find miniatures for the complete crew of the new YT-2400. I added several cool aliens for SCUM too... which is great fun!


I have completed my collection of fun faction specific colored mats and started my colored bases this month. When I start my Battle Parlor Videos you will see how I use them, it is kinda cool, I think. I picked up a few more STAW Expansions too. I am just about caught up with all of the releases now.




Breakfast is an inside joke we share at the FFG Forum; thus behold the power of over-easy eggs, badass toast, sweet maple oatmeal, ham, and glorious crispy bacon!

Happy Boss out!

FFG POST THE ARMADA ARTICLE: ASSEMBLE THE FLEET!

FFG surprises us with a day after Christmas present with their very nice introduction to building our fleets in their Assemble The Fleet Article.

Is there anything cooler than this?
NOPE!

I am all on board with this one my Star Brothers... and you probably should be too.

FFG ANNOUNCES THE IMPERIAL RAIDER FOR X-WING EPIC!



FFG has made a great move to solidify the STAR WARS X-WING EPIC Game experience! So many people have wanted to play EPIC, but they (rightfully) felt no motivation to support the up scaled X-Wing game as Imperial players when there were only Rebel Huge Ships. Sure we could bring a dozen TIE ships, of our choice, but we still wanted our own cool Huge Ships!

Well my Star Brothers as Chris stated in recent months; "Epic... we are going to fix that." and sure enough they did!


Just look at all of that new paper... I LOVE IT!


The new Imperial Epic Expansion would be cool enough with just the Raider, but no... we also get the long awaited fixes for the TIE Advanced with a lovely new repaint of this beloved model!


GLORIOUS WORK FANTASY FLIGHT GAMES!!!
I have been keeping a close eye on how well X-WING EPIC has been doing because I love the game. Miniatures Market and Cool Stuff took twice as long to sell out of Tantives while the Transport went out of stock in just a few months. I won't bore you with the math, but I think it is a safe bet that all future Epic Expansions will include some type of neat small ship variant. That is the smart way to go FFG... keep it up Star Brothers!
How Bout DAT EPIC Now?

Imperial Boss out!

FFG POST THE ARMADA FIGHTERS ARTICLE THIS WEEK!

Fantasy Flight Games posted their Fighters Coming In article this week, and it looks like a whole lot of cool action is coming our way, for we Fleet Commanders! 
I think I am going to be ridiculous when it comes to buying the Fighters Expansions... they are going to be to cool to not own them in the hundreds.


Just look at how cute these little guys are...


The rules for fighter squads are slick, smart, and downright FUN!!!
Ten boxes of each?
YES!

Fleet Commander Boss out!

A surprise treat made it's way to the Internet this week: a free preview video of the new ARK OF THE STARS (The Starfaring Ark) feature film. The Comet Empire Returns! 


We can absolutely expect a full Comet Empire Fleet and in all likelihood new EDF ships from our friends at BANDAI in 2015... it will be glorious!




These clips are from the 2012 remake, and other series. I love it!
