    Yes and no. Tom is working so I would if I was going, but I am going to a movie sneak preview Thursday night with Diane.

    KOTOR release event is happening on the 23rd. That's millennium's event.

    ALSO, there is a HUGE WOTC RELEASE event on the 30th for us as well. I've sanctioned that one. It'll be very very cool. ALT PAINT MINI, MAP and other cool prizes to the first 12 !!!!!

    So the 23 will be a SWM Release from Millenium and then the official WOTC is the 30th?

    Does that mean that theres a special deal for both games?

    CNSFX of course - Michael Easton, Michael Rosenbaum, Henry Winkler, Kate Mulgrew, not to mention Tim Sale, Alex Ross, Peter David, and etc.. How can I miss all that? My little box that I typically take is nearly full and I feel that I've barely scratched the surface of my comics. Might be time for a bigger box.

    BTW - I didn't really quit the league. I just told Terry that I had no time to play before CNSFX (too much to do) and that I had a concert on the 28th., so I wouldn't be able to play until September.

    I now need:

    Leia Organa
    Jarael
    Jolee Bindo
    Kreia
    Mandalore the Ultimate

    to complete the set.

    Mandalore the Ultimite is nice with certain one armed fringe jedi that weilds a double ended lightsaber....

    200pt squad that rocks:

    Mando the Ultimate
    Kreia (the 1 armed jedi fringe chick with maul style blade)
    Mando Quartermaster
    Mando captain
    Jarael
    and Filler. (including a Jawa scout)

    Nothing better than a Mandolarian Jawa that shoots at +10 TWICE.

    Ok, there is something better...

    Kreia with her TRIPLE ATTACK and TWIN!!!

    Oh yea... 6 attacks. Mess with a 1-armed chick will ya?!

    6 chances to get FURY... and two more attacks! SWEET!

    Oh and don't mess with a pale white skinned Chick either. Jarael also has 6 ATTACKS! Nice.

    what did you play against?

    You could have used Vader in there to give you that +6 AC...

    Awww - just as I may have talked Diane into coming back this week. She wants to get out of the house and see what everyone is up to after hearing Tara's bad news. Since she hasn't bought anything from the last 3 sets, she's afraid to play and will probably want to sit and watch this time. (Unfortunately, the Borders coupon is only for 20% off an item.)

    Eeek - the only figure I have from that list is the Mando Captain. Oh well.

    Daria,

    Could you please pass along the idea that if anyone has Mandalore the Ultimate to trade..I do have a Cade Skywalker up as a trade fodder please. Thank you.

    Well, hopefully Diane and I will make it to gaming at 1 p.m. tomorrow. Nicky needed us for the Pottery Event in Victor from 9:15 - noon as backup (IRG), photographer and squire. I'll be putting together my 150 point team tonight just in case we can make it in time.

    BTW - I still need Cade, but haven't gotten either Mandalores yet.

    I beat Bert for the first time! Patrick may have been the winner, I'm not sure. No one mentioned or offered a Mandalore to my knowledge.

    I have pulled duplicates of Zayne, Han, and Visa Marr in less than a case of boosters.

    Han is a nice piece to have a double of.
    Not surprised about Zayne and Visas

    Picked up Jareal and 2 Vong Hunters over the weekend.

    We've got a Mandalore! Urrgghhh, I wish we lived closer so we could have more people to play with...

    Hope you guys don't mind me poppin' in here to say "hi!"

    If you do, just chase me out with a broom. I'll go, I promise :D

    Does anyone think that the quality of the minis themselves (the little statues) has fluctuated quite a bit from set to set? The new ones I don't think are quite as nicely detailed as the last ones.

    Oh, celine - of course you're welcome to post here!
    I wish you guys were a shorter drive too. Not only for minis gaming but for doing joint events.
