Title: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 11, 2014, 10:43:52 PM
hello there, i  owe some of you some material ( pics) -. just want you to share anything involving SWMB Stuff. Here are some of my work.
let's begin with some conversion ideas for the Fringe troops. WEG did great sculps but, i needed to custom some of my gang members/ enforcers/pirates to bring some diversity troughout the existing models.
here you got some custom ideas for the Quarren. The original Quarren ( Visquiss) was concieved as a court member. I need a more though guy, so i made some surgery in order to use a more appropiate hench men body.you'll recognize the Nikto body - also with three fingered hands- i tried a henchmen with a forcepike- minor custom, and other one with the original quarren Blaster pistol, in a more LA gang member posse :P
 Hope you like it!

well, ...as Commander Vyper, i had my own "cold weathered Themed" battleboard. But WEG sculpted hoth themed miniatures only for collector purposes, given the lack of different posses.
i needed to custom A Rebel Field Officer, so i used Solo's body, a casted head copy from a taun taun rider, that i drilled with a dremmel, put into a metal face and completed with mu first putty sculpting expirience :P
Here you got Gen. Solo and ....hummm.....gen. Reekan?? :P

Here are another idea for those that are tired of painting Snowtroopers.
So sorry for the pic quality. ( my camera stinks).
You should recognize parts from different WEG miniatures. Waist to the feet: Snowtrooper. How about the torso??some creative surgery,some putty sculpting on the armor plates for the arms, and here is a Grenade throwing Snowtrooper Squad leader!! ;)

"chewie and i have gotten into pants more heavily guarded than this"

My friend Sergio, S Spaniard SWMB gamer, actually living on China, designed and sent me a present a couple weeks ago. I felt i had to work on it and send him a feedback just to see if he were as fond as i was. still more weathering to do. but it looks appropiate :) ( i hope so) i didn't dare to put more shovelled snow on the top, because of the difference with tha snow flakes ( used on the battle board)....i don't how how to handle it.....any idea?

here are some more customs, this tme for the Fringe faction. using a 90's pulp mini ( i think they're Ral Partha) i tried to convert it to a Slaver Twi'lek ( you should sorry me for such sculpting, i think it was my 1st experience with putty), another copy was used to make a crossing with a Rodian ( greedo) looking for a rodian henchman.

Imperial command Chariot. The usual model labels produce the more destacable vehicles from SW Universe. But all the material WEG launched for the RPG offered lots of vehicles that deserves to be put in a battlefield. this one was conceived to bring imperial officers through the battlefield leading the troops or to bring them  to report "in person" the situation.
3d printed, sanded, puttied, and bit-completed with photo-etched pieces looking for a final good looking.
be kind  :P as it is one of my 1st works with airbrushes, and testing weathering tecniques.
Also compiling data for the next project: Rebel Freerunner. if anyone'd be interested it'd be interesting in order to reduce such expensive costs. ( i mean, it worths ordering three or four models rather than ordering one by one). free will ;)
HOpe you like it!

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project

nope. we looked it on shapeways but we didn't find it. we arranged the plans and ordered the design at first, then the printing.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: The_Beast on March 26, 2014, 08:10:27 PM
What sort of size, and costs, for the Freerunner do you think it'll end up being? Assuming you have four others step up?

Besides SW gaming, like many SW designs, it has plenty of VSF possibility, as well.

Doug
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 27, 2014, 01:20:03 PM
quite expensive.
doing the 3d Design was about 50 € - then the printing looking for the cheapest way ( melted plastic, not resin,) freerunner should be roughtly 80€. One has to be determindes that it worths. my friend and i are determined. we need to talk the printers if the turrets will be actualliy printed or may we scratch the weapons, in order to simplify the design for the most competitive price.
the model should be round the 21 cmts. again , it's the answer for any romantic WEG vehicles if you want to face in a battle 3squads of stormies, 2 more of imperial army, an AT-St and such :P

working on  a Power generator a Spanish fellows "garage" company released a month ago. Very Wargaming firendly, not the hulky model it's supposed to be,  but almost 40cnts. length. Damn cool indeed, actually working on the final detailing. I promise some pics when i'll find where my darling put the camera's batt charger ¬¬

thx to all incoming posts!!. Indeed, there are metal miniatures, they were released in 1989-1990 by West EnD Games. Yo should check other treads of WEG Star wars miniatures - the genine ones!- from Commander Vyper and Michi.  they also have awesome paint and conversion jobs.
Here are some pics taken by my mobile ( i could find the camera's charger!!) of the Power generator model. Still WIP.
Cheers to everyone!

Anyway; here's my Power Generator.  a General overview of the rebel defense line, and a detail of the work done on the atgar 1.4 ( i added some OOp SW parts and a gunner.

Hello there folks;
some updated pics of the scenario we play-tested in a local wargaming day a couple days ago.
We especially paid attention in adjusting some details in order to write down the whole scenario.
And having spent years without playing, we wanted to do  the more flashy way we could: trying the funny Starfighter Straffing rules. Damn Cool.
bringing a tie bomber on the battleboard should mean a - 2 morale level to our foes :P
a lot of interest in such old -fashioned jewel. A couple of wargaming clubs wanted us to show 'em how to play.
i'm quite happy about :)

tie bomber looks like it might be a Micro Machines Action Fleet model - I've a few of their other star wars fighters and they fit in beautifully with the WEG models. That or maybe one of the Titanium range diecasts.

Some of the old GZG 25mm vehicles are good for other star wars universe models - IE rebel ground vehicles, Imp/planetary defence ground vehicles etc. forgottoen the name of the company that now sells them, they are in Scotland iirc.

Jim, there is a SWMB Third Ed.  which improves the game bringing starfighter Straffing rules ( instead of Off-board Artillery,i mean, this is more flashy)
If the enemy player has any on board artillery ( which was the case)there's still a chance of hitting the starfighter, destroying it, or merely deviating the bombing path ( what happened in the game) . note: tie Bombers leave 4 proton torpedoes
Rebels - or fringe-  also can pay for single straffing starfighters that brings death from above  per battle. I must confess i've reserved some 1/72 models : the classical TIE, X, wing,  Y-wing and a 1/72 B-wing. MUAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
The Tie Bomber is a resin model from Multiverse Models.

I'd been thinking the same thing, but it appear larger by more than a bit to me. However, I'm not familiar with Multiverse, so who's to say...

No, that was a request for info, not just an aside.  lol

Mostly the smaller stuff, right? No sure some of the resin monsters I have would fit. Besides, if I ever get around to selling them here in the colonies, with shippage being what it is from the UK, I should get a pretty.  :D

Long before the WOC appeared, i had a spare 1/12 Speeder bike ( ERTL/MPC)?? you may recognize some bits of such model.yeah i know modellers would be horrified, but at that time i needed to scratch in a compulsory way. Now i'll study what to do in order to make it look better by the moment some putty to cover some bits and make some round hull parts, then sanding and panelling work. yes the pics sucks my camera left us recently. Requiestem in pace.
After checking the weight test i've realized that i must weight the base and cover the transparent one turning it into a scenery one ( covered with terrain layer)

Hello there Folks!.
We're working on a Scenario on Kala'unn, the spaceport of Ryloth.
the idea is, once playtested, put the edited scenario on the SWMB Yahoo group.
By now here are some captions of the battlemap and the forces.
Jabba the Hutt has sent Tessek as a courier for a Spice dealing.
Awaiting for them, The Baasa Clan, one of the most prominent spice dealers family from Ryloth.
hope you like it!

Hey Matt. i must admit that i began collecting WEG when i was 14. after 26 years, once sold several GW stuff, i re-started to collect WEG again. i tried two  WOC blisters - or whatever- but the quality of the minis was, for me, outrageous - i know that other series of WOC were in better shape, but the ones i bought seemed to be microwaved!!.
On the other hand, i wanted to keep the scale. there's something on the real 25mm that amazes me - not only grenadier, but ral partha  and such, that IMHO 28mm has lost.

thus, only WEg ;)

about the Sali Barge- or perhaps a cargo Barge, i guess i can teake a picture with the skiff for comparison, even that is still WIP ;) i'll upload it soon!
cheers!!

thx everyone for your kind words!! i'll keep posting some stuff. - in the end, it's the only wargame i retain: too much work for the few free time in this days :/
The models is a 1:72 XS STOCK FREIGHTER, it appeared in the videogame Star wars: The Old Republic, as the smugglers' ship.
it's a garage resin model, wich means a very limited number of copies. still, it has some of the classical Corellian design, although this one seems a bit rustic.  I prefered purchasing different models rather than the YT-1300, and in the end, the FineMolds Millenium Falcon was as expensive as the XS Stock freighter or the YT-2400 (next in my building queue). And they always looks flashy on a battleboard!!  8)

Hello there, gents. Yesterday some fellow members of Despertaferro and AIF wargaming clubs playtested a scenario we designed for three factions. Thus, Criamon, victor and myself have tested and enjoyed the results. As we advanced in this tread, The scenario takes stage in Kala'unn, the Ryloth Spaceport , in where the representatives of the Clan Baasha, producers of the highly prized spice Ryll, have to close a deal with Jabba the Hutt representatives. The Hutt sends four enslaved wookies, as sign goodwill that will work as slaves to mine Ryll.
A rebel command, stuck in Ryloth, has his eye on the Tessek's freighter , Jabba envoy, and pretends to steal it, hoping to get out of that hole. Although they faced with the moral dilemma of freeing the Wookies and thus gain important allies. And everyone knows what the debt Wookiee Life !.

With nerves, a henchman fires his gun and put both factions firing. People carrying boxes full of spice and credit Ryll trying to reach safety, the rebels appear suddenly after several drawers opening fire on the wookie captors. Among the chaos, the Wookiees, like the Lannisters whom always pay their debts, and are engaged to pluck a few heads of Tessek's henchmen . He is forced to order his Gamorreans they drop the boxes with the precious Ryll and go to restore order. Meanwhile, rebel leader has been found in one of the boxes scattered around the spaceport a thermal detonator, which successfully launched on  Ryll crates carriers. Tessek's being severely diminished his forces. The Baasha clan, as they've got the credit crates and collected toward the entrance to the cavern that leads to the underground city. Trying to secure at least payment crates, they 're also trying try to reduce Tessek forces, pretending also recovering the spice. Tessek has the freighter in walking distance, but the melee among Wookiees, the remains of his own thugs, and his bodyguard Gamorreans stand. Finally, among Wookiees Gamorreans and there is a slaughter, that seek to exploit the rebels ran to the freighter, anticipating the intentions of Tessek. The rebel hero dies of a Tessek's  accurate shot , although  little remains of the rebel squadron makes it to the Corellian freighter before Tessek survivors would.

There we have left. - on 6th round- if we 've played up to 7th. The rebels effectively have entered the Freighter, and perhaps The Baasa clan Twil'eks have reached the Cave entrance.
The truth is that it was such good fun with peers. We have found that the scenario works, the dimensions were correct and the interplay between three factions, though at first it may seem complicated, opens up many possibilities for various betrayals and promotes numerous twists to the strategies of each.
 In addition we tried a number of special Abilities in Gamorreans and The Wookies, which give more color if possible, along with random equipment available among stacked boxes at the spaceport, brought surprises - the thermal detonator that the rebels found and useless - as they were already equipped with- blaster pistols encountered by Baasa hench men.

you can find the Scenario in the Yahoo group SWMB groups. you must have yahoo account and get going. Once admitted you'd find a lot of material prepared by SWMB players.


 good people; a pleasure as always !!!

thx for your words.
perhaps it has some influence on Scenarios published by WEG like " to hunt the Hutt" on "Imperial Entanglements" supplement or , as you said "Like rats in a trap".  But we developed a whole new scenario.
Anyone interested on downloading should join the SWMB Yahoo group - a yahoo email needed!- then enjoy of many updates, info, scenarios, home rules and such.

any feelings and oppinions about the scenario, will be wellcome!

The scratch-built barge, and the trading scenario both look really great!

Thanks for sharing your pics.

It appears that at least some of the round containers on the landing pad are contact lens cases.

However, I'd like to know a bit more about the other containers, since I could use some of them as well.

Are some just cubes with printed paper designs glued to their outer surfaces?

Who makes the other cargo containers, and/or are there any other inexpensive ones from other manufacturers that would be useful too?

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project

hmmm well. the tiny round containers are: topnots of Milk briks, ( i could'nt get Lens cases!!!) the little crates are from Antenocities workshop  i think they are leaving the 28mm scale and pointing on 15mm, but if you look for small crates they'll do the job! . finally, The containers are simple cardboard boxes, covered with rugged cardboard, done by my friend Criamon.

Thx for your kind words!

ok next step: i need to make four 60x60 boards. looking for some urban looking. the idea is to provide some platforms/terraces as basement for the towers and "skyscrappers" below the platforms i'd like to use all the Lasercut sprues in order to give an intincratenetwork of tubes / connections/ or what ever, plus all the bits and greeblies i can collect!

well, there is a "mini Mansion" pack from WARMILL, and a couple of additional corridors. quiite expensive but one of the finest designs i've found.  His designs will allow me to use it as a Bespin corridor themed board, or some hidden asteroid rebel base, or perhaps a imperial research compound.
Plus, the industrial buildings are from Wargame Model Mods. cheaper and not bad at all at design. i realized they'd do the job.
Additionally, all towers are scratched  with diverse materials,- from tobacco pots to kitchen robot pieces ;)
a broken Crane toy it's been really usefull for additional corridors.

ok, Now some proxy: My Bespin will need some Bspin Wing Guard.  Since WEG Didn't Sculpt any Bespin Guard -what a loss- i had to investigate several possibilities in order to create some proxies.
First of all my excuses for the pics, my camera can barely focus such tiny items ( mental note: a camera for Christmas). Second, i have to improve my blue palette.  Anyway , that's the idea.
i put the stormtroopers for comparison. new palette for my stormies. Happy with the results - even that they're WIP. annoiyed because now i have to repaint all the other stormies again :P

Hello Kidterminal!
They're Proxies actually ;)

I had looked in the old  real 25mm companies in order to work on some modifications, as i needed some order forces for my "Bespin" battleboard.
The one on the right is from Ral Partha. Discontinued. Iron Wind Metals is producing a reculpted one - with a chest armor and a double barreled gun. Sadly, i found the new armor too bulky. the others are from GZG. they needed some work by eliminating badges, equipment bags,  and the like, and a bit resculpting on the caps.

While finishing our Bespin Scenario, which we hope to test on January, the 2nd,  we wanted to keep the SWMB rules reminded ;)
Thus, we organised a little scenario in which the Imperials needed to recover  some special equipment from a previosly attacked supply convoy.
The Rebels, on the other hand, using hit-and-run tactics, were awaiting for an ambush.

My good friend Criamon sent me the pics just to show you some little captions.

Here you got some of the imperials, keeping a cautious formation.
Some of the Rebels forces, awaiting hidden.

The Imperial Probe Droid was detecting some of the rebels units, forcing them to  reveal their position,  The rebel skiff had to move away from an extremely resistant probe droid!.

The imperials reinforcements entered in the battlefield in order to provide support to the imperial Army squad, which were resisting a high amount of blaster fire!.

A couple of speeder bikes, part of the imperial fast reinforcements, found some point-break fire from a hidden heavy weapons rebel squad
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project: Some Scuplting modifications
Post by: huesped on December 06, 2015, 10:07:34 PM
We must say that Criamon hidden units reflected a bright strategic sequence, forcing imps  to combat, almost unit by unit, just to find another hidden surprise.  This unit of hoth rebels fought against the imperial speeder bikes , destroying the two of them.

2nd. Last moments of the imperial speeder bike, found in a crossing fire between the rebel hoth troopers and the rebel skiff.



Last. The In Memoriam pic of the Imperial Chariot crew. Missing on Duty, presumably killed or abducted by the rebel scum. Last reports informed that several hits had damaged the vehicle ata the point of breaking its move capacity.


Thax again to CRIAMON, VICTOR, LEWIS CURRO for being such a good players - and fotographers!!-

It's been a while since i'd wondered i needed an urban board. I was really interested on using catwalks and platforms. in such way, i needed to give the board different depths.
Given that my free time just allow me to keep painting and gaming  with my WEG SWMB, the election was something that could represent any advanced city or urban planet. When i had the concept i realized that a wheathered  colour scheme -( appropiate for planets like Nal Hutta) would'nt differe from the usual infinity boards. I needed something different.
So i chose white/pearl schematics , and remembered that there are NO COOLER place  in the whole galaxy to visit than a floating city.

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project: new Modular board: CLOUD CITY
Post by: huesped on January 03, 2016, 03:33:12 PM
Yesterday January the 2nd, I was invited by  one Local Wargaming Club here in Mallorca, called Despertaferro , on a SW games Journey.
I had to thank publicly to Javi "Steiner Steiner" from Despertaferro for count with me, Criamon, Victor, Xavi Alujas , Xavi Vila for his pics, All involved, somehow in this Scenario.


As i explained before, i wanted to create a modular board, combining some clear areas, such as plazas, squares or terraces, with some corridor/rooms system.
At first i was tempted on painting it with some rust,because as an urban board it could be easily used as Nar Shadaa or the like, giving an excellent place to play  with some Scum and villainy. But then i realised that it will look loke most of the typical actual sci -fi boards.
By reviewing some of my old WEG SW RPG material i was amazed by the amount of the Bespin related information on the Galaxy Guide 2. Bespin and Yavin.  It gave me the main idea for the Scenario also.

here is the Foreword of the Scenario:


Bespin Motors was formed as a  footnote to the construction of Cloud City, but has grown to become a respectably large company in its own right. More important to recent history, its reportedly rigged self-buyout from Incom Corporation, its parently company, sent ripples of rebellion up and down the Corellian Trade Spine.

When Lord Figg was in the planning stages of his floating mine colony, he contacted the then young  Incom Corportion to see if he could contaract some of their design and engineering staff for his project. Realizing the research potential of such a large project at such a great altitude, funded completely by Figg himself. Incom agreed and sent some of their top workers to the Bespin system.
 As some of the staff from Incom stayed on Bespin and Bespin Motors, a subsidiary of Incom Corporation, was formed.

Shorty after the defection of Incom's X-wing design team, word reached Bespin Motors that Incom's executives had washed their hands of any responsibility toward employees taken in for interrogation by the ISB.
Deciding that it was time to go it alone, the executives and workers of Bespin motors hired the corporate mercenary group known as Molly's Merchants, a collection of electronic forgers, slicers, and infochants. The Merchants transferred enough of Incom's funds into Bespin Motors' account that it was able to buy itself out from its parent.

Small enough not to be noticed against all of Incom's Holdings, the sale of Bespin Motors went through without a hitch.
Since then , however, accountants at the Infocom offices have become rather curious. Rumors float up and down, but nothing can be proven.

….until now.


In this Scenario.


The urdercover Rebel Agent Kel, who,  working  as a top Exex for Bespin Motors, was in charge of contracting Molly's Merchants,  needs to recover the equipment installed in Bespin Motors offices for hijacking Incom accounts.

Elea Poista aka Kel.

While working  as a top Exex for Bespin Motors, Poista was in charge of contracting Molly's Merchants to stage a buyout of Bespin Motorsfrom their parent  company, Incom Corp. Molly's Merchants transferred funds from Incom to Bespin Motors, allowing them to buy themselves out as an independent company. However, while tracking down Molly's Merchants, Poista learned just how much crime the Empire created. Her realization led her to shift her business dealings to favor the Alliance. Poista's new goal was to hurt the Empire and aid the Rebellion in any way possible, and she used her connections to secure weapons to sell to the Alliance. Although rumored to sell to highest bidder, Poista maintained Imperial and criminal connections solely to funnel new Imperial technology to the Rebellion.
In this scenario, Elea needs to reach the freighter in the Landing pad ___with all three Molly's Merchants members. She will do anything to avoid any Molly's Merchants member get captured.

Partial victory:
Rebel Player reaches to the Freighter on the landing pad with any Molly's merchants survivor (Dreshig, Snorg, Magar) .
Total victory.
Rebel player reaches to the Freighter on the landing pad with all Molly's merchants team.

ISB Officer  Fennor Fisk
Fennor Fisk is a gambler, and he has recently lost almost everything in a bad stake on the Cloud city's most famous Casino, the Pair o' Dice.
As an ISB officer, Fisk has some information on the recent events involving Bespin Motors and he decides to use his personal guard as reinforcements and having a look on the Bespin Motors Offices. He knows his troops are not equipped, and he's not on an oficially Imperial territory. Thus, Fisk only counts with 4 squads of his out-of-duty personal guard to accomplish this desperate investigation.  But If he's right with his hunch, the reward on the capture will re establish his personal economy and his status on ISB.

Partial victory:
Capture any Molly's merchants survivor ( Dreshig OR Snorg OR Magar),claim the Capture  to the Empire above all Cloud City's jurisdiction, and Proceed to Interrogation on Imperial installations. Fisk ends alive.
Total victory.
Capture  alive all Molly's merchants team (Dreshig, Snorg, Magar) and claim the Capture  to the Empire above all Cloud City's jurisdiction. Proceed to Interrogation on Imperial installations. Fisk ends unharmed.

The chief administrative aide Lobot.

His brain was connected to the city's central computer which allowed him to communicate directly with the city's computer network.
In this capacity, he can control issues of bureaucracy, law enforcement, computer programming, repair and security, as well as the communication systems, repulsorlifts, and life-support systems. Once he recieved reports of several unauthorized Imperial troops on Cloud city, Lobot has blocked all acces to the area. His main interest is to keep unaware the citizens, and solve discretely this unfortunate event.

The city's  central computer is actually blocking all communications in order to avoid new Imperial reinforcements.

Lobot has two priorities:

PARTIAL VICTORY
Take Under arrest whomever is fleeing from the Imperials. (Dreshig, Snorg, Magar)
 If the ISB Agent is making an unauthorised operation in Cloud city it means they're dangerous. At least he will have something to negotiate with the Empire in order to preserve the independence of Cloud City.

TOTAL VICTORY
Take custody of the Slicer team AND Take under arrest/decimate any imperial trooper survivor.

The ISB Agent Fennor Fisk leads his personal Diplomatic guard on Bespin to clarify what's about some strange account movements on Bespin Motors Offices.

I thought that the imps neeeded to begin on Fisk's personal Suite, the 2 story building in order to let more time to the rebel player and the Wing Guard player to begin moving across the corridor maze.

Thus, the picture reveals how when the imperials arrive to the nearest entrance of the corridor system, are actually blocking one of the rebel agents way out to the landing Pad.
Luckily for the rebel agents , they were equippedwith some Smoke grenades.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project: new Modular board: CLOUD CITY
Post by: huesped on January 03, 2016, 04:02:26 PM
We designed and INTRODUCED some Scenario Rules:

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS DOOR??!

Lobot's new cybernetic implants increased his intelligence dramatically. He could communicate with the city's Central Computer  at all times, controlling issues of bureaucracy, law enforcement, computer programming, repair and security, as well as the communication systems, repulsorlifts, and life-support systems.
Thus, Each SPECIAL ACTION PHASE, Lobot can block ONE Door througout the scenario.
Any door on any  corridor are affected by the Central Computer.
No more than two Doors will be simultanely Closed – have in mind that Lobot and the Central computer are, actually, blocking all the sector- . If Lobot decides to reopen or reassignate other doors closed he decides which door opens and which one are released every SPECIAL ACTION phase.

Cloud City inhabitants.
 We wanted to re create the panic on cloud city when they witness Imperial troops on the system , and the rebels trying to hide among the fleeing inhabitants.
Even when Lobot has incomunicated this sector in particular, several group of citizens are found on the corridors or the Plazas.
Citizens( 20 miniatures)  on groups of four, as it they were a unit, will be placed and moved by the Rebel Player.

As they are non-combatants, we recommend not to bog down the game in terms of Morale rolls. This eliminates some die-rolling but leaves the citizens in as an obstacle. This will provide some Line Of Sight Blocking to the rebel player.
Simplifying their reactions:

Any citizen that at the beginning of their Movement phase have LOS with the imperial troops will  move 4' fleeing from Imperials.
Cloud City keeps its neutrality by avoiding any substancial interest on Imperial affairs. The wittnessing of Imperial troops means that something might happened.

Additionally, any citizen involved in Blaster fire will run 8', at their Movement Phase to the safety of a building or a different corridor.

Imperial Surpirse: Among the inhabitants of Cloud city, there is a Bounty Hunter previously hired by ISB Fisk.  In that way, The Imperial player must write on a paper in which citizen group will be hided 4-LOM. any movement phase will be used by the imperial player to recall his hidden agent and use it.

Post by: huesped on January 03, 2016, 04:42:33 PM
well, again, we run out of time, leaving the game lacking of, possibly, two rounds, or three more.
BUT, we realised that the forces were quite balanced, the initial deploying settings were well placed, and left some liberty to the rebels in order to decide wich were the best path to avoid either the imps and the wing guard.
Also, The scenario rules gave some interesting two-side game for the Wing guard player, as he has blocked some doors bloking either rebel and imperial player movements.
The civilians rule worked well too, letting the rebel player keep blocking Lines Of Sight to the Imperial and wing guard players, while hiding the rebel movements from direct blast fire.


We surely will repeat this scenario, in order of play test it again  and edit  the whole Pdf scenario.

Oh, crikies! [Whoops, Penfold again]

I see I commented early last year, then failed to follow the thread. MASSIVE failure at that!

Kind of play table I dream of seeing when/if I can get to a big con, but that blows most all I've seen clear away.
How well does the modular board compress/stack for storage/travel? I'd actually like a piccie of it packed up.

all boards were built 6 cmts. deep.  As all structures are removable, all 4 boards put toguether heights 25 cmts.
 Thus, sizes would be 25cmts. height x 60 w x 60 long.

well, there is a "mini Mansion" pack from WARMILL, and a couple of additional corridors. quiite expensive but one of the finest designs i've found.  His designs will allow me to use it either as a Bespin corridor themed board, or some hidden asteroid rebel base, or perhaps a imperial research compound.
Plus, the industrial buildings are from Wargame Model Mods. cheaper and not bad at all at design. i realized they'd do the job.
Additionally, all towers are scratched  with diverse materials,- from tobacco pots to kitchen robot pieces
a broken Crane toy it's been really usefull for additional corridors/catwalks.  the twin round towers were part of a sweater that came comercialized packed inside a Pill box. thus, the two halves became instantly customized for the board. in fact, i stored them for a couple of years meanwhile i wondered about building Bespin. ;)
There's also a 3 galoon water container, cut the upper side turned it updown, and with a couple of scenery bits. it's the two colored one.

Thank you again Doug;
nope, i needed all buildings to be completely removable. that helps to change a bit the map ( for different games)
  In fact, since i make a great inversion in the corridor system, i wondered that it would be also easily used as parts of An asteroid secret base ( pirate/rebel) any Imperial Advanced Science complex.....or whatever.
thus, i focus on giving part of the scenics just on the boards, that could be easily interchanged by, for instance, an Asteroid surface. In four boards 6 cms. deep i could mix again exterior barren surface with zones carved directly into the Asteroid, provided preassured enviroment.
in fact  if anyone  played the WEG RPG i'm wondering on some "Strikeforce:Shantipole"map:  the 1st rebel base in the Roche Asteroid field.  o_o ::)
or , as someone nailed before, a sort-of Moonbase Alpha

Post by: huesped on April 06, 2016, 06:37:22 PM
Hi there, folks!!!
 i needed to restart posting something. Too busy late times, but at least , a couple of pics.
Inspired by Commander Vyper's amazing sandtrooper conversions, i decided to follow his techniques to convert some standard stormies to Sandtroopers.
Additionally, i have tested some weathering and pigments in order to give them a really hardened look. I wanted to reflect the long-range missions given to this special trained stormtroopers. So i gave them additional equipment ( blaster  ammo, long-range comm equipment) to some of them.

Hope you like them and, obviously, any advice will be welcome!!!
Again, thanks to commander Vyper for the work converting stormies, that was an inspiration for me. It's your Idea, My master ;)

Post by: huesped on April 28, 2016, 02:12:07 PM
Hello there Gents!. I've been trying to sculpt a little bit one of the miniatures that came with the EMT Jabba's Throne Action Scene model. I always wondered, since the RPG that this was a vicious pet. Later i learn, on Wookiepedia , that this ugly Frog-Dog was a sentient being ( DAMN You EU!!!!). In any case, the miniature ( cast in injected plastic needed to upgrade some of its features and provoque a nasty vision. Thus, i -tried to!- Sculpt the lips and the eyes, that needed to evoque more to toads' eyes, on the other hand, replicate the thin and vicious teeth was a complete nightmare....perhaps i'll remove if the results painted does'nt do the job.Sorry for the pic quality but Keep in mind that the miniature seizes knees height on normal WEG miniatures. i even thought  on replace the putty teeth for copper wire!!!!   In any case, Any advice of how to sculp thinner teeth will be welcome!!!!
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on April 29, 2016, 12:12:17 PM
Thank you Commander Vyper! After curing i agreed with you, the best option for the teeth was using copper wires.
Well, that's it.
I wanted to give some fleshy colouring to the lips in the internal side, but it was more complicated that i thought with the teeth in the middle >:( . it's not a  big miniature in the end. but it's been funny indeed!!.  ;)
hope you like it!

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project. Droids you're looking for.
Post by: huesped on May 21, 2016, 11:30:45 PM
Hello there again Gents!.
We've been play-testing a home made scenario for SWMB. i must thank my friends Miguel venegas Aka Criamon and Victor for bring me the opportunity of testing this scenario.  The Scenario is designed for 2 players and a gamemaster or three players. Pics by Criamon - the cool ones ;) )
 and miself.

In this scenario:
The twin suns rise once more on Tatooine, the hulky sandcrawler stops discharging their restless inhabitants with his merchandise, it seems that the sale of the droids  and other  refurbished findings will leave good credits.
 The jawas have  stopped by  in a little  farming village to sell . Several droids and some useful parts for the moisture farmers.

 Lord Darth Vader has deployed a complete battalion of Stormtroopes on Tatooine for recovering some stolen data. First informations among the deployed troops are pointing to some undetermined droids. Several Sandtrooper patrols are  searching throughout villages and scavegers to find clues that lead to the stolen Plans. They will obey faithfully the orders of their commanders, their mission is simple, it is believed that one of the droids  carries vital information  and must be captured at any cost. no further description has been done on the droid description what means that the stortroopers must check as many as they can.

Jabba the Hutt has ears everywhere, If the Empire is after the droids is worth a lot of money, it is the thought of crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and  has sent several thugs in order to “persuade” the jawas for getting as much droids as they can. The more droids in his clutches, the more chances for blackmailing the imps, or perhaps selling the information to the highest bidder.  though, sending Gamorreans can be tricky ...

 

 

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 21, 2016, 11:37:54 PM
The altercation takes place within the limits of a Tattoine village in which the  Jawas have set a  trade camp. The camp consists of a   trade stand in the farmers' village, near the  base of a sandcrawler. There are also scattered piles of goods displayed on pallets . Among the crates and pallets, there are 10 droids, showed for any potential customer.

Obviously, the jawas are  neither foe for  two eight-man sandtrooper squads nor Jabba's "bargaining" entourage, but they are supposed to annoy any of the players strategy, by taking their droids under restraining bolt Callers and rallying to their sandcrawler. Additionally, a wide experience on rude relations with Gang members, Swoop gangs, tuskens and some farmers have showed the jawas the importance of hiding some additional weapons among their refurbished goods.
Thus, the jawas can search among the crates and Trade stands for some weapons that they have previously hid.
Finally, If the situation goes out of control they can recall a refurbished war droid, found long ago, that will appear in the Sandcrawler.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 21, 2016, 11:44:53 PM
DROIDS LOOKING FOR FREEDOM!

Since the Jawas aren't capable of wiping memories, they put restraining bolts to all droids.
Restraining Bolts are small receivers that are attached to the droid, allowing an owner to bypass the droid's motivational programming. By using a signalling device, the owner can force the droid to perform certain simple actions. Typically, the restraining bolt forces a droid to activate or devactivate itself on command.


Without memory wipes, most  of the droids are still carrying internal baggage from a previous owner. Thus, most of their developed personality is still working effect, such as the original owner loyalty. In that way, the droids don't recognise Jawas as their new owner, but as slavers.

As soon as the action takes place (werther some droids are taken or not) the droids begins to flee.

Thank you mates!!!
In this Scenario the goal is to recover as many droids as possible and bring them to the rally points For which we used the skiff for the Jabba's henchmen and the Imperial command chariot for the Sandtroopers. The sancrawler it is assumed to be placed in the end of the board, for the Jawa rally point. having in mind that there are 10 droids, recovering 4 of them gives the battle for one of the sides.
While the Jawas begin the set up on the market, in the middle of the board, they have to carry the droids to the rally point (to the sandcrawler) using the restraining bolts' callers. It is assumed that any droid under the 2'5"radius template it is affected by the callersbroadcasting effect. but the jawas only have three callers ( one per squad)
As there are very few SWMB gamers, i tend to build three way scenarios, that could be played as two-players plus gamemaster, or three-way, inserting in the rounds a third party. (i. e. 3 initiatives, 3 movement, 3 fire, 3 morale, and special actions phase) This allows me to join the game as a player instead of keeping the gamemaster's role. Being you allways can decide either attacking a faction or other, pursuing your goal or counterfeiting other gamers' actions, funny indeed!!

Meanwhile the stormtroopers have benn equipped with DEMP guns ( wich emits an electro-magnethic pulse, disabling the droids main systems, Jabba has sent as maney enforcers as she can, for this scenario, the Gang Player had tow squads of enforcers - with some vicious pets, and a few Gamorreans. The typical  thugs sent to reclaim protection to moisture farmers, you know.

1st round.- the jawas are foreseeing troubles when they see the Imperials coming. Plus, the Bloated One's henchmen are disembarking form their desert skiff. More troubles.  Suddenly most of the droids run amok, fleeing from their captors.  We used the Scatter grenade deviation template to decide which direction headed every droid.
we marked the jawas which had the Callers with a white marker in order to clarify which ones could regain control of fleeing droids.

On the other side,  stortroopers opens fire among Jabba's gang members , but not a casualty has taken this turn.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 22, 2016, 04:57:10 PM
2nd round.-
Some of the Gang members opens fire on Stormtroopers, and send some of the vicious pets among the imperials, hoping they will be too busy to shoot being engaged in assault combat with such ugly beasts.

Two of the Jawa squads have regained control of several droids - six in total- but four of them are out of range and fleeing of jawas!!!
The third jawa squad seaches among the crates some of the hidden equipment and find.... a gardeffi???!! Damn!!!

while Stormtroopers fires from their beginning position/rally point, a squad of gang members, followed by the gamorreans, are heading to the market.

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 22, 2016, 05:08:05 PM
third round.-

while  a sandtrooper keeps firing at Jabba's henchmen - and their vicious pets!- the second sandtrooper squad moves to a safe point nearer the market, followint the outskirts of the village.
The second Gang squad captures a fleeing droid on the opposed side of the market, while two of the jawa squads  heads to the sandcrawler with the droids.One of them attemps to find some more hidden equipment and find a jury-rigged flamethrower!!! Yahoooo!!!
 the third of the Jawa squads awaits under heavy cover ( among the crates) to give a nasty surprise to jabba's men.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 22, 2016, 05:23:39 PM
4th round.-

Some stormies have taken position on the South side of the vilage and are firing among the Jawa squad, which are heading the sandcrawlers with three droids under the restraining bolt caller. This is the squad that has found the flame thrower, but they are out of range for using it against the imps.

The other stromie squad is engaged at Hand to hand combat with the vicious pets Jabba's henchmen has sent to them. 1st war beats id down!!

There's a fire fight between the 1st Jawa squad and the Jabba's men in the market, while some others are taking the droid in their clutches to the Skiff!!.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 22, 2016, 05:43:04 PM
fivth Round.-
The jawas who have taken positions on the market in order to hold position against the Gang members are engaged in assault combat by the fierce gamorreans.  What a bloodbath. luckily some dice rolling were bomb-outs!!!!

The fire fight among the Jawas and the Stormies rages on at the other side of the market. Finally the jawa uses the flamethrower in order to obstruct the path of the sandtroopers.  but the imps intercept to of the fleeing droids!!!

Meanwhile, the War droid the jawas sent two rounds ago is firing against the same stormies, hoping that a followed fire will take some casualties and freeds the Jawas, under cover, for heading again to the Sandcrawler

Second vicious pet Down!!, the remains of the Sandtrooper Squad  moves to intercept the Gang members that are carrying  the captured droid to the skiff.
Additionally, another droid it's been taken by  Hutt's men, at the market, besides the Gamorreans Butchery.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 22, 2016, 06:06:01 PM
Sixth round!

One of the Jawa squad finally arrives at the sandcrawler, scoring two droids!

the second Jawa squad has been completely exterminated by the Gamorreans. The green ones are heading now to give support to the comrades, under stortrooper fire nearby the skiff, where they score one droid. And other in the way!!!!
The Gang members who were backing the Gamorreans now move closer to the third Jawa squad ( already engaged in blaster fire with sandtroopers!), but the jawas recieve them with a Flamethrower blast ( Squid BBQ!!!!). Additionally, some of the droids leaded by the Jawas are sustaining blaster fire, slowing them!
The jury-rigging the jawas made on the war droid haven't last enough, under stormie fire, has sustained several critical hits ( 2 in the leg, two in the body, and one on the head) Now, blind, and out of control, fire upon any unit, foe or friend!!!

Also the Sandtroopers Scores two!
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on May 22, 2016, 06:19:22 PM
Out of time! time for conclusions.

Although the jawas are the weakest faction, their goal isn't to overcome the other two factions. They have to be played as an annoiyance for the Imps and the scum faction. They have a better initial set- up and its a race to the sandcrawler, while trying to get as many droids as the can in the way.

 The hidden equipment brings them some interesting resources and firepower, and we  agreed to roll each time a found weapon were used by jawas ( making evident that the weapons are in bad condition, jury-rigged, or refurbished) in order to see if the weapon's got depleted, or malfuction, at a50% chance on a 6D.
The war droid was the real hope for the jawas, but the stormtrooper player has got a real good rolling round, and caused it such damage that the droid went blind, slow, and too far from the stormies to use the auto-destruction program ;)

As usual, we run out of time and we felt that in two more round we'd have seen which faction, Imp or Scum, would have won, by scoring more droids, or by counterfeiting  the rival actions.

Very happy with the Scenario, a few details to correct, but the general idea works.

we probabbly upload when edited at the SWMB Yahoo group, just in case someone wants to take a look. Obvously any feedback will be welcome!
Regards, gents!.

Jawas taking in Gammoreans  lol
hahaha it was assumed that the gamorreans could have been some trouble for the Hutt player, assuming they are hatred by droids. I liked the idea of the Hutt player losing the dice rolling to prevent the Gamorreans of destroying the droids instead of capturing  them :D
But Miguel was careful enough of not using them for hunting droids. On the other side, he used them to make jawa hamburguers xD

Cheers Jim!

When i saw the recently published first pics of the Ep. VIII set, i found that the local police forces ( i guess that they're police forces because you can read on the helmet's plate written in aurebesh C.B.P.D.  o_o) that there were some GZG miniatures that would fit in to do some PROPS. You know that i'm a compulsory guy and i needed to give a try. Now that my compulsory needs are under control, i'd redo the sculpting - excuse me i don't sculpt , too sturdy i'm afraid :P- and do all the process moe accurately and, perhaps with white milliput instead of green stuff.
Sorry for the pics but they're just for having a glance of what-could-be. hope you like the idea!!!

Hi all;
it's been a hard times lately on my ex-job. now that i have a bit more time, i've retaken a new project for new scenarios involving SWMB.
i wanted to recall those landscapes that the EU elaborated mainly by WEG's Rpg provided to SW.

Additionally, many exotic battle boards involved jungle, inhospit and dangerous worlds, with it's aggresive fauna and flora; but perhaps due to the wide work on GW's - its Death Worlds and such- most of them seemed a typical rain forest with strange plants ( beware! some of the could eat you!!) ;)
In any case, i felt the need of looking for another cromatic challenge.
These are the firsts stages of the board. I did'nt nkew if a wanted a tundra world or a tropical scenery ( which needed more space to store!)
Several Sci-fi inspirational films made me wonder which was the board i 'd like to do.
(http://static2.hypable.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/allegiant-outsidethewall.jpg)
but was dismissed because it seemed too post-apocaliptic and not too alien :/
obviously, the next one had more appropiate sci-fi flavour:
(http://collider.com/wp-content/uploads/star-trek-into-darkness-chris-pine-karl-urban.jpg)

This was the result. some home-made flocking that seemed to my eyes some sort of algae or primitive flora, like lichen over a ashy ground.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on November 09, 2016, 10:14:37 PM
..i made several tries of flora but i did'nt like that: i needed a new direction.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on November 09, 2016, 10:17:49 PM
Luckily i found some dry flowers and i knew that's what i'm going to do. FUNGHI!!!!!
in addition with the general flocking ( made with foam and a cheese schredder) that had a lichen-algae overall i found that a landscape of a dark atmosphere, inner planet on a red Dwarf star system will do ;)
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on November 09, 2016, 10:43:49 PM
i mixed some well-known dry flowers and seeds; the ides of making funghi forests took better shape.

some close ups on each flora bases; six in total, regarding three big ones and three smaller.
MOst of them have paths to facilitate movement of the troops.
All of them considered Scrubs/Bushes ( in SWMB LOS, light cover, slows movement) and where the funghi are grown further a man's height also blocks LOS

Post by: huesped on November 10, 2016, 04:45:09 PM
Last ones; aaaand the central piece os the scenario. A crashed wreck.The idea is to weather it as usual in SW look. Also, it needs to wear the dust and dirty  of the violent crash. This is going to be used as a central piece ( battle objective, last stand, whatever involving rebels, imperials, some neutral or local forces - the ship is going to be painted with Corporate Sector emblems). By now are two different parts, but i'm not decided if finally integrate the ship into the board  ::) thoughts?

Wondering if some pigments will do the job for representing the dust,even over the flora,  laid on the ground again, after the crashing.

Ok, ok, Rogue One was stunning for me. but Criamon and other gamers still have to find some time for playing on the new red paprika planet :P

Meanwhile. I am cuddling some different idea for our SWMB games.

i've been collecting some bikes in 25mm because i always had in mind that my scum and villainy needed some vehicles.  i always loves the concept draws that appeares in SW WEG Sourcebook for the Swoops. basicly, a motor and a seat.

I was lucky of finding tha sadly OOp GZG Light horse cavalry that provided me different models of speeder bikes, representing the thriving industry of vehicles thoughout the galaxy.

And they fit pretty well with the awesome miniature from WEG
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on December 19, 2016, 12:47:59 PM
This is the original GZG Light horse cavalry that i mentioned. Still WIP, as the bike isn't painted yet. I decided to leave at least one miniature unmodified.
I painted the pilot in civil overalls, even that he's a rogue and wears some armor and side arms. in the end, he's a criminal to the Eyes of the Empire!
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on December 19, 2016, 12:52:06 PM
But for others i pimped it in a more SW flavour.
i used a Dengar head for this pilot, Anyway needs a repaint , more highlights , and i'm wondering what to do with the crackelled paint ( i pretended to give a old battered look to the bike - probabbly repainted after being stolen hahahah-
On the other hand, i used some preassure molds and green stuff for replicate a Nikto face for other pilots ( mental note: change that Blue) that needs a repaint also.
A swoop gang in Sw needs to be multi Ethnic!! xDD
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on December 19, 2016, 12:54:31 PM

This is the Second Swoop i made.
As you see, Swoops are signifficantly bigger than Speeder bikes.  MAinly repulsor engines, a seat and maneuver controls. In that way i wanted to give 'em a sort of futuristic repulsor Chopper look.
The chasis were from Shadowrun an d the pilots was a GZG original light horse biker. The head, again, molded from a SW WEG miniature .

Next 2017 project;
 SWMB stated that the Calamari troops were the only among the rebel troops who could carry combat armor. I always guessed that, as the Calamari were one of the few races that openly support the Rebellion, it was completely pledged to warfare. Even that calamaris were only showed on screen as naval enforcers...i'm working on a ground combat unit.

AMBUSH IN THE MIST

The Vulture, a space yacht decorated with the insignia of the Corporate Sector, reverts its journey to subluminal speed in a secluded system hidden from the watchful eyes of the Empire, or so they believe ...

In it travels Yorenn Siwbarra, an important executive of one of the great firms of the Corporate Sector and Shen Wando, liaison with the rebel Alliance. Wando has long worked for the rebellion to receive economic support and resources from the Corporate Sector; It has been decided that the first meeting will be held in this enclave, where they expect to meet with a delegation of important Alliance officials and be out of reach of the imperial forces.

Suddenly, the yacht is attacked by a ship of unusual design. Must have followed them ... but, to this place ?? Have they overlooked any tracking device? Or maybe they have been betrayed ...

The ship falls, damaged, losing load, components, energy. The Company pilot decides to risk a forced landing on the only planet that shows signs of sustaining life in the system. Moria, the second planet counting from the Local Astro, a red dwarf. The planet has a dark reddish appearance, covered with a thick layer of gases or vapors. Nothing reassuring. However it will serve to await the arrival of the ships of the Alliance. And they have better opportunities to survive than emptiness.

[...] In another part of the system ...

The locator she had placed on the Vulture had gone unnoticed during routine inspections. Kai Coreshock had followed them to this uncharted system. The Imperial Security Office (ISO) had hired her to probe and verify if the Corporate Sector diverted resources to the Rebel Alliance. As she pressed the controls of his transponder to summon the imperial fleet, she extended his mystical senses to the ship that was fleeing badly toward the small planet .... A strong presence stood out among the other crew. A being of light, a grace of the Force. That would make the hunt even more interesting.

He stared at the erratic trajectory of the yacht as it descended into the hazy atmosphere of the red planet. ... would expect the arrival of the imperial reinforcements, would receive his reward if, but before .... finally wanted to test his skills against an enemy at his height, a powerful in the Force. He was going to enjoy himself immensely to test himself and see as far as he could.
[....] Surface

The yacht collided on the surface of the planet dragging its crippled hull carving a trail of destruction and scrap metal. Checking the damage and the condition of the crew and passengers, the pilot positioned his distress signal, hoping that the Alliance, on arrival at the appointment, could locate them.
Probably the culprits were pirates but the Alliance liaison guaranteed that the system was unmapped, in any case there was the possibility that they were waiting, impossible thought, and finding them only meant that they should have been tracked.

Suddenly the sensors that remained operational emitted a cacophony of beeps and signals on the screens appeared imperial ships entering the system. It seemed like a small contingent of quick response and right now they were completely alone against their unexpected pursuer. Until the rebellious reinforcements arrives they would have to manage alone, at least they had an ace in the sleeve, Shen Wando ...
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on January 22, 2017, 05:15:23 PM
In this scenario:


Rebel player: 1639 SGP's

8 crew yacht Vulture (small arms)
4 Well-equipped bodyguards / mercenaries
Yoren Siwbarra, CEO of Corporate Sector. (VIP)
Shen Wando. Undercover rebel agent. Jedi Knight

Imperial player:1641 SGP's

Kai Coreshock. Advanced Sith Apprentice.
Imperial captain.
Two stormtrooper squads (6 each)
 Imperial Navy Officer.
Two Imperial Navy Squad (8 each)

Deployment zones.

Rebel forces

 Entrenched to 15 "of the space wreck.

The rebel player has had time to raise barricades with the cargo scattered in the collision. The idea is that they have prepared a makeshift fort to deal with the imperial forces. (They start the game in heavy coverage, which can be destroyed and rendered useless)

 The Alliance delegation is very close to the system, on arrival they can detect the distress signal of the Vulture and engage in combat against the Imperial Flotilla.

The player may have one / two hunting attacks, have refused space combat to support their groundmates.

Rebels: In the first phase of Special Actions the rebel player must launch a D3 to represent the number of rounds that take the rebel forces to appear at their appointment in the agreed system. At that time, a Corellian corvette and a Y-Wing squadron will appear in orbit, to verify that instead of its liaison with Senator Siwbarra, there is an Imperial class Carrack cruise. From that time on the rebel player can request an Y-Wing attack ( starfighter straffing attack rules!) And the rebels will know wich is the retrieval point.

Total Victory: Jorenn Siwbarra and Shen Wando must survive. Victory objectives should be shifted to points randomly determined by a D2 (North-point - NOrth-East, 1,2,3 - NOrth- West 4,5, 6 -

Partial victory: Jorenn Sibwarra must survive. Victory objectives must be shifted to points randomly determined by the same procedure

Imperial Forces.

The bounty hunter Kai Coreshock has requested imperial reinforcements. A small rapid reaction force, consisting of a light class Carrack cruiser appears on the system. The arrival of the Carrack is a quick response to the call, does not have large landing troops, but is probably the advance of a bigger force. With limited landing power, the Cruiser deploys a few units on the ground.


Deploy along opposite ends to the space wreck. North side.

 

The Imperial player can arrange a surface attack with these fighters (for Game purposes, a Tie fighter that will make a flush) See rules of Starfighter straffing attack run.

Total Victory: Capture or kill Jorenn Siwbarra and Shen Wando
Partial Victory: Capture or kill Jorenn Siwbarra.

Special Scenario Rules:

Fog of War. The dense atmosphere of the planet keeps the submerged surface under constant dense fog. This reduces visibility - 8 "The fog covers the whole table, except for the higher areas of the playing field. During the course of the game, the fog can rise. At the end of the Special Actions Phase, a player throws two Dice and adds them: if it adds 10 or more, the fog starts to rise. Visibility increases by 1 "per turn. Macrobinoculars, like stormtroopers' lenses, deny the effects of fog. The rebel players placed three dummy dice for each squad/hero ( different values) in different locations  this made the imperials to wonder wich were the real location of our troops, given the dense mist  extended on the board. Additionally i prefer this system rather than writing the movements and locaions in a paper. it gives you and your foe the illusion that there are real movements on the board, but you don't know wich ones are fake or if they are responding to a real strategy.

The Imperial Playes used succeedely the Sense Life power with Kai Coreshock, that discovered many dummy positions, clear of any rebel scum/ traitors to the empire.

Mynocks! The mynocks are one of the most particular creatures in the galaxy. Technically they are a winged parasite that lives thanks to a guest that happens to be its habitat, arriving to measure 1.60 meters. They are highly energicotropic and as long as they can be hooked to spacecraft that cross their path. Spacecraft are virtual energy banquets for mynocks. They tend to concentrate around areas where energy is more easily accessible, such as power cables and ion gates. The collision of the ship has attracted numerous Mynocks, eager for energy. Although they do not usually attack numerous targets when they are hampered, they will not hesitate to do so to isolated targets and always in herds. (Any group of miniatures made up of at least 4 or 5 members may attract a flock of Mynocks due to the concentration of the energy cells of the weapons they carry. They will appear with a score of 5+ at the start of the turn and may suffer a Attack of these beings.) A success in attack by the Mynocks will suppose that they have adhered to the arms that carries the miniature that is attacked. The Mynock will suck the energy contained in the arms of the weapons until they leave them coaxed in D3 turns. A miniature with an Attacked Mynock can only fight for release (melee combat), and can not participate in combat.

As rebel players, we deployed the Vulture Crew surrounding the ship wreck, among the crates they have prepared as  hard cover.

We placed the Jedi away from the Exec and his bodyguards, expecting to attract attention from the imperail player and letting Sibwarra to escape.
The dicerolling war lucky for us, letting the Rebel reinforcement - on Orbit- arrive in one turn!! , additionally our, pick-up point was on our left side.

The imps , on the other side, were unlucky , each time our Friend Lewis threw a dice, rolled for a Mynock appearance only among the imperial units!!! bogging down their movement, as they had to fight agaist the annoyant aliens had- to hand.
Mynocks even manage to withdraw a stormie unit in a Monty Pithon's and the Holy Grial rabbit scene ( " RUN AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY")

Even with two squads attacked by mynocks, ( each turn, many thanks, Lewis!!! lol lol lol) the Imperials were closing their grasps on to the desperate Alliance liaison and the exec. entourage.

While they were advancing, the Sith apprentice was using her Life sense power, and soon there will be nowhere to hide.

Again Mynocks appeared to bog down the imperial forces that were surrounding our hidden Exec with his bodyguards, thus, now or never it was time to head for the pick up point, while were ordering a straffing attack from the rebel forces in orbit.(http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w507/Kraneo2002/20170121_151846%20Desktop%20Resolution_zpsvvdamvfe.jpg)

As the Imperial forces tried to intercept the exec fleeing path, in a desperate decision we  clashed in a hand-to-hand combat, but widely outnumbered. given that the exec had a Personal Energy deflector, but no armor - thus, less chances to survive in a hand- to hand combat, requested to the Y-wing to do the straffing on our position. REAL DRAMA!!!

the straffing attack did kill many imperial, but some of the  Sibwarra bodyguards too, he was about to leave the board by the designated point - and winning the game, but Cpt. Kolaff survived the Y wing's deflagration and engaged in a hand to hand combat with our Exec. finally, bad luck wet the rebels, and Jorenn Sibwarra , our exec. was killed by the naked hands of Kolaff'rage.  :'( :'( :'( :'(

Aftword:
Even that the rebel side was lucky on the pick up zone rolls, with Mynock, only attacking the Imps, they were outnumbered.  Rebels were about to win. The sith apprentice couldn't match the Jedi Lightsaber mastery skills, the aerial support requested by cpt. Kolaff was bad relayed and delayed two rounds....but, in the end, Kolaffchoked the traitor Exec with his naked hands.  Sad day to the rebellion, who has lost a vital ally in terms of resources and funds.

Did the Tie fighters finally kill the Vulture crew?

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project: 3 ruleset Battle of Scariff
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 07:55:54 PM
Hello there gents.
Last Saturday, Criamon, other members of Despertaferro ( IRONAWAKEN) wargaming club and myself managed to play The battle of Scariff with 3 rulesets ( ARMADA, X-WiNG, and SWMB).
The idea was engaging in three different scenarios that were dependant one of another.
Thus, David organised  a  grid in which each round were described as actions to do ( To hack the imperial codes, to send the data to Rebel Fleet) , and unavoidable events ( arrival of AT-ACT's, Arrival of Vader's fleet).
In that way, If rebel fleet could'nt destroy the Shield, Rogue one commandoes couldn't send the data, etc.

Criamon and myself were incharge of the SWMB ground assault Scenario. There were many issues to keep in mind regarding the lenght of Rounds on each different Ruleset, and we were forced to RESUME. So we decided to use only a couple of heroes. Cassian and Erso. no need to say that Scariff battle could have been played in a more wide quantiny of miniatures, but our challenge was to play acordingly to 3 games, and mainain a "time line"
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:01:56 PM
The scenario was filled of PROPS, you know that the cargo shuttle would be an outstanding example of scrath work but we haven't the time and resources. Criamon, on the other hand , scratched a Shield gate for Armada.
Additionally, the X-wing Scenario were planned for the rebels to protect the U-Wing till they could trespass the Shield Gate and deploy some reinforces on the ground / or destroy the At-Act from the SWMB board. ( using X-wing stats for the At-Act)
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:04:56 PM
The rebel forces had to break the Shield gate in a devastating attack , meanwhile the Rogue One commando infiltrates and breaks the imperial security data banks
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:13:11 PM
The Rogue One:
1 4 Elite commandoes
1 4 elite commandoes
1 6 Hand-picked Commandoes
Jyn Erso
Cassian Andor

The Imperial Forces:
1 6 Shoretroopers
5 6 stormtroopers
Dir. Krennick
2 Shadow troopers


With only a Unit of Stormies patrolling the installation, Rogue One had to arrive to the console in barely three rounds, which it doesn't leave much space to open fire/maintain firefight against the imperial forces if engaged. Thus, Victor and myself decide to split Our forces, one squad firing upon the patrolling unaware Stormies, and the rest running to the console
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:27:06 PM
Meanwhile in the skies, the rebel fleet had to withstand the tie Swarm, which affected  the shields on one of our Frigates, Rogue One hold the line among the crates agaist a non-willing- to -die Stormies. Fortunately, Criamon failed to deploy reinforcements on the 2nd round. This was used by the rebels to move forward fast (RUUUUUUN!!!!) to the Console, still out of range.
the third squad of Rogue One took position in front of the bunker, hoping to open fire against everyone that crossed the Blast Doors.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:33:31 PM
Meanwhile on the third round Cassian managed to arrive up to the console and hack the Imperial Security programs, creating the breach needed to decode the data, the battle above was slowly turning to a massacre, and our fellow rebel Admirals, Oscar and Lluís, began to sweat, thinking on the possibilities of destroying the damned  Gate.

On the other hand, Rogue one commandoes stood still in their positions like Fr$*ck%ng heroes, standing on the imperial blasts fired upon!! ;D ;D ;D
On the Other hand, The Imps were re organizing, and Criamon finally could send some reinforcement, that will, for sure, put the rebels in a unconfortable situation
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:39:41 PM
With The Data decoded, and prepared to send the DS plans to the Fleet. Rogue One could only take cover and wait the fleet to destroy the Shield Gate, and i can assure you that, half the rebel playes had celebrated Saint Patrick - with it's unavoidable hangover, restoring our energies with 4 coffees along the game, we were REALLY SWEATING.  Every time news came from the Armada Board our faces were of despair xDD.
The words " -The gate stands still, one round more-" was said many times that day.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:52:08 PM
The Fourth round, time for Krennick To appear , in the same round that the AT-Act appears to erase the rebels from the map.
Being out of LOS, the At-ACT wasn't a target, even that i equipped some two of my squads with Anti-walker missiles. in a desperate decision the rebels decide to launch the missile against Dir Krennick and his body guards. We only killed one shadow trooper and Krennick could recover himself with a Medpack. .
Every time the At-ACT shoot, two rebels were blown from the map. In that moment the SWMB players were Shouting the Armada rebel admirals to DESTROY THAT DAMNED THING!
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 20, 2017, 08:59:02 PM
Two coffees later, the Armada battle had reach point-blank range in order to destroy the Shied Gate. that Damned thing could restore and reorient its shields, and with a hull of 14 was really hard to beat.  Oscar And Lluís were wondering how to sequence different attacks - even using the Fighter squadrons to penetrate such plating. Meanwhile David, the evil Imperial Admiral, laught and bring to the SWMB board each rebel cruised downed ;D ;D lol lol lol lol

Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on March 21, 2017, 04:07:11 PM
Thank you , guys!!  we really apreciate!

Let me conclude the repot; On fifth and sith round, Rogue one had to stand near the Console to send the data , in case of beating enough the Shield Gate. We all arranged that the At-Act will fire upon the enemy groups, from the biggest to the smallest, in order, tha't why the At-Act drivers didn't know the Rebel objective. Given this, each turn 2 rebel soldiers blew up under the At-Act Heavy Lasers. At least, we had Erso hidden after the console, away from LOS. Meanwhile, on Armada Board, the rebel player had to attack with all the forces, finally beating ( the pody points of the Gate were reduced up to 4, 2, ...) with the last Starfghter squadron that had'nt proceeded to attack yet. EPIC!.
In that moment, on the X-wing board, Javi and many younglings, most of them sons and daughter of the former Despertaferro members, decide to drop some troops with the U-wing, while performing attacks with the remainders of the starfighter squadron to the At-Act.

The data was sent, and the Armada admirals could leave with the data stolen with the Tantive IV. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Rogue One, May the force be with you all.

Thanx to my great friend Orc, i was lucky enough to get some of his designs and commision some copies.

I began painting and pannelling this beauty some days ago. So far so good. But not yet finished. o_o

Now in the dark times that games called Legion involves just a handful of minis, the time has come to prepare another big-scale battle by the oldie-but- goldie SWMB from WEG :P

This monster is 23cmts. long and it's a Floating fortress, as you all could 've seen on my colleague Orc's tread.

Can't wait blasting several rebel hostiles in our next scenario.

next , begin painting the KAAV Freeruners i have for my rebels

It seems to be the Revell one, from their EasyKit line (or similar). The Portuguese Toys R'Us used to sell it.

Jareest is a planet with 80% water surface and dotted with archipelagos, it has a high concentration of metals and minerals useful for the manufacture of space components, fundamental for the construction of space cruisers in a period of war.
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14679;image)
The Empire installed several processing refineries to meet the needs of its war machine, which has led to the Rebel Alliance having been boycotting Jareest's supply and distribution lines, stealing shipments of precious ore, processed metals and sabotaging important industrial enclaves.
In response, the Imperial governor has imposed harsh punishments on slaves such as restrictions on rations, increases in work shifts and toughened dealings with labor.
The growing discontent of the population and above all of the workers, has made it possible for the Alliance to create a rising in the shadows to be something more than a nuisance to the Empire, it is time to hit hard and where it hurts most, during the last weeks it has been sending shipments of military material to support the insurgent movement which, through relentless guerrilla warfare, strikes the Imperial organism. The time for the rebellious uprising in Jareest has arrived.
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14677;image)
During the uprising, the Imperial Governor is surprised while making a journey through the city, the vehicle in which he is traveling has been hit by a projectile of the insurgents very close to the market of the old city. The occupants are undamaged, however, the vehicle is immobilized right in an area where their rescue can be very laborious and in the middle of the rebellious hornets' nest. With the general chaos, the imperial troops are scattered trying to crush the uprising, are already numerous open foci, the revolt grows at times and the reinforcements that have requested, will take in coming.
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14675;image)
Who would have thought that it would be the slaves who would initiate so much violence?
While the insurgents are swirling around the vehicle, the governor again asks nervous staff for his rescue, time runs against him and the crowd is very angry.

in this scenario, Imperial forces have to recover the stranded governor from the siege made by the Quarren slaves, in addition, as a partial victory they have to destroy the Governor's Chariot and prevent the Rebels further use of imperial property.
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14685;image)
The Imperial recovery party is formed by two speedeer bikes, for fast response, a sandtrooper squad, an imperial army squad, a Shoretrooper squad, one At-St forheavy support, and a huge Floating Fortress, for carrying back the governor, safe from harm.

On the other hand, Rebel forces deployed on the planet to support the uprisal were two squads of Mon Cals, one standard squad, and the other equipped with combat armor, and two Freerunners for heavy support. There were many Quarren insurgentssieging the imperial governor, hidden in the closest buildings around the market, where the governor's speeder suffered the first attack. The rebels need to capture the governor and bring back him to a rally point.

The imps began moving the huge monster in order to handle the recovery the fastest they could. Thus, the armoured monster lead the way and the troops followed, ready to fire among the hidden insurgents.
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14673;image)
The rebels acted as expected, they engaged the trap, and some Quarren insurgents appeared over a rooftop to fire against the Fortress, which standed pretty well against some CSPL missiles.

Round Two.

As the Quarren insurgents went down their positions on the rooftops in order to fix some hand-made explosives at the Fortress right side, the imps realised they were being fooled into a trap, enclosed by the city configuration and foot troops that could endanger their hull integrity!!
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14695;image)
In an unexpected movement, Imp players decided to ram the rebel freerunner with their Fortress, confident with their armour thickness!!!!!!!!

The rebel freerunner could barely stand the ramming!!
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14711;image)
As a resulting of the crash, the Fortress lost control, and went out of control accelerating and turning on its left side,  turning few meters aways from the Governor!!!
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14699;image)
On the other avenue, the other Rebel freerunner manage to pierce the AT-St Hull, rolling for a critical hit, re-rolling a couple of 6 in the dice, our AT-ST dropped dead!!!!

While trying to regain control of the fortress the imperial gunners managed to finally destroying the Freerunner, killing all the gunners.
Once regained the control of the behemoth, the needed still to deaccelerate and deploy the Shoretroopers squad carried in its belly!
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14701;image)
On the other hand, the rebel troops were merely 15'' away from the imperial governor!

by risking our own troops, the imperial players decided dropping their troops, while deccelerating the fortress, luckily we were at the best place at the rightest moment!
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14707;image)
by the moment the rebels engaged blasted fire among the surviving Governor's speeder crew, our troops were near enough for give some blaster support!
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14715;image)

But, with the At-St downed, our only hope was put in the fortress, which needed to move backwards and take the right path back to our rally point, while our troops were tryin to escort the governor out of the Mon cals clutches !!
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on November 01, 2017, 12:25:00 PM
the Quarren insurgent were dropping blaster fire and CSPL missiles on our troops, which were standing bravely the attack, whilewe repositioned the Fortress at range for the recovery. by the moment the brave Governor's speeeder crew gave their lives, the shoretroopers escorted in a fast action, the governor into the Fortress belly!.
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14709;image)
the scouting bikes spit some death among the Mon cals, while the surviving freerunner wasn't on position for firing among the fortress.
We ended the game as a partial victory for the Imps, havng the governor inside the beast's belly.
(http://laarmada.net/wargames-futuristas/(star-wars-west-end)-governor-down!/?action=dlattach;attach=14713;image)
In this game we tried to get more used on SWMB vehicles' rules. It was a thrilling scenario, fuill of action, crossed blaster fire, and the hurry for escorting/taking prisoner the Governor.  I think both sides lost half their forces, perhaps the imps seemed to be better equipped, but their forces were less, and the rebels were heavily armed with several CSPL's ( 4 squads)

We hope you like it!

P.D. Now i realize i do'nt have any need of a game  miscalled Legion :P xD xD xD
Best wishes Folks!

Yes they are. At the original SWMB game the moncals were the only rebel troops allowed to carry combat armor, and i always wanted to improve my Mon cals to match another combat envrironments other than a rebel cruiser.

The last Saturday we played the Battle of Endor, in a scenario designed by us, for the ruleset of WEG Star Wars Miniatures Battles.

The battle of Endor has its beginning at the moment when the rebel troops, led by Heroes of the Rebellion, they have been surrounded by the Legion of Imperial troops.
However, in an unexpected move, the hordes of Ewoks make their appearance to disperseto the imperial troops, in a movement of distraction, gaining a few crucial minutes for the rebels
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on April 10, 2019, 10:03:43 PM
The heroes of the rebellion, along with the rebel command units begin deployed in
the area surrounding the bunker of the secondary entrance of the Moon Shield Generator
Sanctuary.
The Imperial troops are deployed making a siege to the rebels, having surprised them in
a masterful play of the Emperor.
The ewok horde is deployed anywhere from the Imperial deployment zone to the
end of the table. The Ewok units hidden in the thicket can be deployed in the area of
Imperial deployment, but not in the area of ​​rebel deployment. The rebel players can deploy
the four units that start the game active, as well as having placed the _18_ counters of
inactive units, or in reserve.
C3PO and R2D2 will be displayed in the EWOK deployment area.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on April 10, 2019, 10:07:23 PM
The rebel player will be able to put into play 4 squads of ewoks, hidden in any wooded area
(bases of forest or of tall Thickets)
The moment a unit is reduced to 2/3 of its total members, they will flee to the the woods to take refuge.
The rebel player has a series of Ewok tokens, which will have positioned in both the Ewok and Imperial deployment areas. These tokens may be replaced by the Ewoks units that
they must be replaced as they are being decimated.
IN THE SPECIAL PHASE OF THE SAME TURN, the rebel player may substitute a token for
a new full squadron in any wooded area or in dense areas in the imperial  or Ewok deployment areas.
This incorporates an extra strategy component for the rebel player, which must take into account
the limitation of the terrain, the layout of the scenery, and the battle objectives to position
the different tokens.
In this way, having positioned the Ewoks tokens well, can mean the difference between having
available units at the time they should be in action or having ewok units, available, although allocated in areas where there is no longer vital moments for the battle.

THE EWOK HORDE
No ewok will be conditioned by movement modifiers applied by the zones
wooded. They are experts in sneaking and moving without being detected in the thicket, thanks to the
skills of a hunting race, used to move unnoticed, the ewoks have hatched a
incredible network of paths between the thicket that allows them to enter and move very quickly
where other species, larger, would have difficulties.
Title: Re: A Star Wars Miniatures Battles Project
Post by: huesped on April 10, 2019, 10:30:26 PM
C-3PO & R2-D2
They begin the Battle deployed in the Ewok deployment area.
Both must remain with each other, at a distance equal to their Command, or, failing that, their
PER
C-3PO is considered by the Ewoks as a deity. In this way, while C-3PO
is in play, no Ewoks squad with Line of Sight with the Droid, will need to make
MORAL checks, surpassing them automatically.
R2-D2 must be in base contact with base before the door of the Imperial Bunker to try
Unlock the security lock, which the Imperials have activated to face the rebel attack.
