This was an extra special holiday for me with the release of STAR WARS Episode Seven and all of the cool new toys coming out based on the film. I hope all of my B6*R7 Flyers are having a very happy holiday!
FFG has made it official... The Gon Gon Zillah is in stores now! The final word on this wonderful ship is a nice overview of how to use the carriers deployment in battle. Check it out in the very entertaining Begin Your Pursuit article.
Just in time for X-Mas gang. I will be getting my trio in Q1... oh yes indeed! This is one of the best ships for EPIC Play now. You can load it with cannons and ordnance, and all kinds of fun squads of small deadly ships... what is not to love?!
I have been wanting this ship in the game for about two years... now it is here and even better than I hoped it would be... awesomness my Star Brothers!
I have been a member of The STAR WARS Family for most of my life. It is awesome to see the love become again what it once was. Needless to say... I am making this a STAR WARS Christmas.
Fantasy Flight Games is doing all of the The Force Awakens product releases just in time for the holiday, and they have some cool new Original Trilogy and Rebels releases too!
This company is doing great work, and I love almost all of it... like 99%!
Then there is the new film and all kinds of goodies associated with the new trilogy... this is such a great time for STAR WARS!
Feel The Force... it is all around us my friends!
FFG posted the first all awesome preview of The Ghost Expansion today in their Lothal Rebels, Part One article. I like this ship even more now... This BEAST is going to be great fun on the table... REBEL GLORY!
I spent the weekend playing with some new videos and made a few hours to build all of the ARMADA Wave I ships into ARMADA EMOTES! These images represent my fleets of course, as of a couple weeks ago.
Note there is no Gladiator present... alas but when I placed my order Cool Stuff had sold out of that wonderful little meanie. I will get it in a couple of weeks with Wave II.
I LOVE THESE CUTE LITTLE SPACESHIP-EMOTE-CRITTERS! Dunno why... I just do!
I have started my ARMADA Collection with thirteen ships and thirty six squadrons. I wanted to be able to actually play some full badass games from day one, and also when I dive in, I go deep... might as well right gang.
I am going to use these rascals in my ARMADA Battle Videos at some point, in the same way that I will use the X-WING icons I made a while back. I like the way some of the better YouTube Star Brothers out there have each ship indicated with it's own icon as it's header. I have seen a lot of the ship I.D. Icons used, but I wanted to do a bit more than a silhouette... it is all in good fun, and dammit I like to play!.
Tired of the old maneuver dials looking beat up? Well Fantasy Flight is going to fix that first thing next year! Check out the goodies in their Ace Maneuvers article posted this week. Kinda cute.
These are going to be great for adding custom ships to our games, rather than trying to get a card printed out nice and clean you can put your favorite maneuver dial into one of these then just make a cute little ship silhouette for the identification image. I already have all of the ships done as emotes so that just might be some awesomeness.
Yeah, I might need thirty of these damn sexy rascals... now "FIX" the tokens FFG!
With The Massing At Sullust event over we are seeing the first nice videos for Wave II Unboxings. Some of the guys I like on Dat-Tube are of course the first Star Brothers to post The NEW Goodies for us. Check 'em out gang!
I already have about $300 of goodies waiting for me in my Miniatures Market cart.
ARMADA Glory coming to The Battle Parlor... soon!!!
I got a few new models for some upcoming projects this week. I am going to start work on some crazy SCUM Hot Rods, to add some badass options that I feel S&V is lacking. I love SCUM because they are so perfectly suited to making special fun stuff like this.
I am going to get back to work on my little 30MM Miniatures too. I plan to get the crew of The Ghost done before the forthcoming expansion is released. Might be fun!
I think we are going to see many of these in STAR WARS X-WING...
Up next is the NEW X-WING Force Awakens Starter. I think we will get this at a few places for full price on Force Friday. I am going to wait and get it later once it is at Miniatures Market and Cool Stuff.
Good stuff is coming this holiday season, and it might even get crazier in 2016.
I am working on getting some nice BATTLE PARLOR videos going. Unlike the hangouts which turned out to be horrible, these will be videos produced in house where I can take my time and make some decent episodes.
The cute little X-WING Emoticons I made last week are going to serve as identification icons in my videos. You know how a lot of You-tubers will have the forces presented in the borders of their videos right, well I am doing the same thing. Each ship will have it's stats laid out nice and neat and they will all have one of my cute little icons too... cause!
Making tiny cool pictures of the ships that we love Boss out!
This new EPIC Expansion is doing a lot of work for X-Wing, and that is going to make a lot of Star Brothers very happy I should think... it has been a long time coming.
Wizzies shipped out theirSTAW WAVE 17 too and it is looking awesome. These are all cool ships and they will make the game more fun for three of the main factions! Wave 17 includes the U.S.S. Thunderchild (Federation), I.K.S. T'Ong (Klingon), and I.R.W. Vrax (Romulan).
I am very happy to see all of these awesome ships joining our fleets! This is a good month for Star Brothers everywhere, I should think!
