I can do that.

Could do bigger dreadfleet maybe?

I'm thinking that I might pick up a copy of the Imperial Assault expansion and we could play it on Sunday. I was just wondering what the general thinking on that was, if it's too soon since the last one, or you want to get some 'hard-core wargaming done' or something, or indeed if it's the best idea ever.

The campaign in the expansion is 4-6 missions long, so about half the size of the main one.

I'd be happy with that. Or Dreadfleet. Or anything really.

Not to keen about anything 'hard core' though...

Yes, we can Star Wars it up! Just had Pete fail to beat the French again so I'm ok on Wargames for the moment.

Star Wars it is then! That does mean it would be handy if you all came to mine, so I can set up beforehand.

I might have issues with that. Not that you shouldn't arrange, I just think that you should be forewarned that I might have issues getting there on time. Smile

Are we doing new characters?

I think you should, there's two characters we've not used in the main set and the expansion comes with two other characters. Plus all the others got executed last time.

...or at all. To confirm, got to the second place from last time first this time.

Is it the Boba Fett one? I thought I saw a different one with more stuff on on the Outpost site.

Also, if we're good for Sunday the week after I'll try and blast through painting more Dreadfleet for then?

It's the Boba Fett one, though disappointingly I think Boba Fett's on the cover but not in the box. We'll wait and see.

The other one is Return to Hoth, but that's due to release to mid-late December, and is a much bigger expansion, with a campaign the size of the original game. So, you know, if my Secret Santa's stuck for ideas...

Also, more Dreadfleet would be good, get painting!

Can we have a vague outline of the characters for this one? Might speed things up if we've already chosen...

They're the same as last time plus the option of four others:

A Bothan
A Rebel with a big ass gun.
A female Rebel Technician.
A Rebel Commander.

Bagsy being the commander as he's a bald guy with a beard. Just like me! Smile

You just focus on which house to go to!

I'd like to refer Wes to his comment about how quickly this matter was dropped by Pete.

'Quick' is relative, if his still bringing it up in 20 years then I'll retract my comment. Though I don't see it stopping anytime soon.

I think you should probably pick from the four that we've not played with before, but if someone really wants to be one of the others that's fine.

Characters are:

Biv Nodhrik - Vengeful Guerilla
Saska Teft - Brilliant Engineer
Gideon Argus - Valiant Commander (Kieron's choice)
Mak Eshka'rey - Bold Renegade

Mak Eshka'rey!

22 Re: Next weekend geek night! on Sun Nov 15, 2015 11:51 pm

Well, in that case, unless they say otherwise, I reckon Matt should play Saska Teft and Mike play Biv Nodhrik, just because they're pretty much opposites to the characters they played last time.

That was my thinking about the commander, as it's exactly what the Wookiee wasn't.

Useful, and not easily replaced by a Star version whobdoes the job better? Wink

But yeah, I'll go with that

Precisely!

Just think Mike, you might actually get to use your character without cheating... Smile
