THE CHRONICLES OF JOE BOSS' TABLETOP ADVENTURES IN SPACE OPERA SCIENCE FICTION AND ELDRITCH HORROR MINIATURES WAR GAMING. I AM A LONG TIME SCALE MODELLER, THUS YOU CAN EXPECT FREQUENT ARTICLES ON RELATED HOBBY TOPICS AND COOL SCIENCE FICTION AND GOTHIC-ELDRITCH HORROR MODELING PROJECTS.
Bandai released the U.N.C.F. AAA-2 ALDEBARAN this month. This is the sister to The Andromeda and an important ship for any Cosmo Navy Fleet! The Mighty Andromeda Class cruisers are able to defend against large enemy fleets with their many weapons and on board fighter and bomber wings.
The wonderful Aldebaran kit comes with the new Cosmo Tiger Fighters. This new release is now available everywhere. I recommend good ole reliable Hobby Link Japan.
This month I happily grew my glorious Imperial Fleet with Imperial Veterans and a deadly sixpack of TIE Aggressors! Now I can build some all-new EPIC Fleets with these wonderful ships!
I added to my SCUM Fleet with the badass new Scurrg Bomber and some very special Black Sun ships too! Now that I have purchased these Black Beauties FFG will make them next year... lol... slow but good Fantasy Flight just announced the Kimogila after all.
The FFG crew leader mentioned they had something BIG coming for ARMADA and sure enough here it is. Checkout the new hotness in the The Grand Admiral Arrives article! I love that they are bringing Thrawn and the Rogue One heroes into the game... oh and our first SCUM Ships to... because... YAH!
Keep up the great work Fantasy Flight... The Force Is With You!
Fantasy Flight Games has Brung The Pain this week and it hurts so dam-good! If you missed it STAR WARS: LEGION (The New Miniatures Game that will kill 40k & IA) has been announced and previewed at GEN CON 2017!
I am way on board with this game and will support it with every bit of vigor that I have focused on X-Wing and EPIC! I already have a first week wave one (lol!) membership in the first STAR WARS: LEGIONFacebook Group. If you intend to play this game I can highly recommend that you friends of mine come and join us there! This is a group of cool Star Brothers & Sisters with zero troll stupidity, and it has been nothing but fun to participate with these fellow Legioners!
I put together this nice collage to share some of the highlights of the imagery that has already made it to the web in this first wonderful week of happy new badass STAR WARS Miniatures Game energy. I am very pleased to see the core set will lead us off to adventure with Luke & Vader of course, but seeing Rex in there too is just delightful! (Note: The WAVE 1 Image is fan made, but know that Alex has already confirmed that both of these models will be coming to the game soon.)
I love Little Alex again! This is a deal maker for me. If you pay attention to everything said here it is very informative. I was pretty much on board with buying this game. Now that I have seen these videos I am crazy on board with it. Alex you have annoyed me in the past with some of the things you did with X-Wing, but that is lava under the repulser lift my wonderful little Star Brother... Go Boy... Run!
FFG has officially announced Wave Twelve today to the joy of many deep-dish STAR WARS Fans! Checkout the crazy new ships in the Bring On The Alpha Strike article!
The Wave that many people are happy to see... or they just don't get it...lol! The HUTT Fleet gets one of their beast-ships; which I hollered about for over a year. The Empire finally gets the dam-star-wing-monster too which had a kult at the forums for two years. I have to admit that I love the dam-thing now that I see how lovely FFG made it. The Rebels got another ... Uhh... Rebels ship, and it is fine.
This is a fine and a crazy-ass wave gang, and I love it!
2017 is the fiftieth anniversary of GEN CON, and Wowzers this year is being all kinds of DAM-GLORIOUS! On Thursday WIZKIDZ previewed New STAR TREK ATTACK WING Card Expansions which they plan for all factions to improve ('ish... LOL!) the game. Kinda funny & cute, but it is a worthy effort I think.
More importantly Fantasy Flight Games has announcedSTAR WARS: LIGIONand shown us X-WING WAVE TWELVE!
Checkout the unexpected amount of coolness present in the Vaksai half of Guns For Hire in the new Vaksai article! Fantasy Flight was serious this time, and has made one of the top end expansion packs in the entire game... Go SCUM!
There are all kinds of goodies in this Badass Expansion! The new Titles and Pilots are just cool and so damn scummy. The new Ordnance, Upgrades, and Conditions that we have seen in The Viper and Vaksai Previews shows that this a must have new addition to the game... Great work Fantasy Flight, Wow!
