    I'm thinking of doing some custom characters and I'd like to see what you guys think about these new keyword ideas.

    Unorthodox (If your initiative roll is 11 or higher, this character is +3 attack and defense this round)

    Comm Intercept (Each time an enemy commander's turn ends, an ally up to 6 squares away may move up to its normal speed even if it has already been activated this round)

    Not sure what to call this one yet - This character may not gain Force Renewal and is not considered to have a Force Rating for opponent's abilities.

    Force Damper maybe? The rest sound fine :)

    Proving just how badly I need a job, here is a list of images I found interesting on wookiepeida and think would make excellent miniatures:

    Hello, this may have been asked already but I was wondering if anyone knows whether or not Wizards will be making more starships minis? A Starship Battles II so to speak?

    I haven't heard about anything on the horizon for Starship Battles. IIRC it didn't sell well and the rules were kind of crappy.

    Oh, that's too bad. :( I was hoping that, down the road, there's be minis of more EU starfighters, like the Assault Gunboat, TIE Defender and E-Wing.

    Read the history for the Jedi Brute and cringed. Remember when Exar Kuun was the only one ever to have learned/mastered the double-bladed lightsaber? Now everyone has the darn things!

    People have described it like a fast paced combat only RPGs. You get stat cards to the "little men" all have different abilities. Until you really give it a play it's hard to describe.

    One of the better games I've played. I'm sure there will still be a decent following, and sites like www.BlooMilk.com will help keep the game alive.

    I'm sure most of us saw this coming, but it's still sad.

    All these threads seem dead. What's the story? Noone plays miniatures anymore? I'm totally new to these things, and they look cool as hell! If this line is kaput, is there a new hotness coming out!? Perhaps an announcement at cV?

    Wizards of the Coast are no longer making Star Wars miniatures. They lost the license earlier this year. My group still plays some, but not all that often.
