nevermind, just saw the other thread.
Ironlightsaber that is FREAKIN cool !
Ok, I am officially excited for this.
Very cool, ironlightsaber. I forgot to pm you my shirt size, XL (as if I have any hope.) If anyone needs clones, I have 30, many of each variety. I think I will go with the #1 from Universe, since there are 3 of us using the #6 from CS. I also have 40 Battle Droids and many Geonosians, in case you need more. See you Saturday!

that is what I was going to say but all that came out of my mouth sounded like porky pig but instead of me using clone # 6 from cs do you guys mind if I use custome painted clones from mixed sets? since I have no cs #6 any longer
Do Commander Effects work "through" the shields? Meaning, if my Clone Commander is on one side of the shield, do troopers on the other side benefit from it?

Didn't someone sign up for Qui-gon early on? He wasn't listed in the pm I got. Or are we trying for Star Wars continuity rather than SWM gaming faction consistency?

All your questions about mechanics will be answered at the event. ironlightsaber amd scruff have done a phenomenal job with this. I am excited to take my roll on the evil side.
Patience, for the Jedi it is time to plan as well!

Ok, just voicing my questions now, as I am liable to forget them come Saturday.

At this point I am really wishing someone had picked Aayla.

(darn my daughter's Hutt sized tonsils!) :D

we would encourage this...
#6 and #7 are really cool but I'd rather play the way cool #4 (if that's allowed). Seriously though, this promo is friggin awesome! That's the sort of thing that gets me fired up about the RPG again. I'd love to play part of a Clone Delta team with other players to save our Jedi Masters. Wow, I never thought playing a team of clones could be this exciting. It could really be cool though! Sorry, getting off topic. Your event looks cool!

I had sighned up with qui gon but I ended up selling him and the orginizers were cool with me picking a diferent jedi
we would encourage this...

I saw something that said smoke plumes and toxic gasses in the breifing so my clones are going to look like they have been stomping through toxic mud and sludge

Will work nicely. We playtested tonight. The thing will run super quick if you all can have a way to identify all of your clones.

It was a lot of fun just playtesting!

he he *tease tease* :P ;)
I have a question. and I would need to know your thoughts by Wednesday of this week.

So here it goes,

To every one who will be participating in the Nexus Tournament (before the scenario), would you prefer, old boosters, or Champions of the force boosters for prizes?

Heres the thing, Depending on the turn out for the Tournament , The Owner of COMIC WORLD would like to Give out Champions of the Force Boosters as Prizes. But, Since COTF is not out yet, She would give 1st and second place a Gift Certificate ,good for X amout of boosters. So you can pick them up June 9th, @ Comic World, or she would mail them to you)

once again, the amount of boosters will depend on the turn-out ( how many people show up for the tourny.)




So how bout it, give me your thoughts on this.

And may the Force...be with you.



Scruffy
I'm all for COTF boosters even if that means getting the prize at a later date.


For the players of the special event (and the tournament) please be sure to bring all the stuff you need in order to play. This means the figs, stat cards, dice and Hit Point/Force Point counters.

I wouldn't mind "IOU" prizes of COTF boosters as prizes at all. :D
Take down two votes for CotF. My friend and I would love IOU's (he doesnt have boards access at the moment.)
I would not mind IOU's. (klecser, can you pick them up for me if I win?)

IF you win, she can mail them to you.
IF you win, she can mail them to you.

Yeah, sorry, I was in a rush and forgot to include that part.

[Edit] Ok, the oringinal post has been changed.

Just an F.Y.I. If you win the Tournament and are given an I.O.U., and you would like the boosters mailed to you, there will be a $3.00 shipping fee.

Just wanted to let you know.

Is this a local event at an LGS or something? Sounds really cool. How does it work?

Actually 2 game stores here in Lincoln (COMIC WORLD, & GUANTLET GAMES) hold The Nexus gameing convention 2x's a year. The convention is Downtown above a Brothers. This convention is mainly for a bi-yearly War-Hammer tournament. Other games are played there as well. Star Wars Minis, Hero Clix, Zombies, Tons of RolePlaying adventures, Dungeon and Dragons minis, Axis & Allies, Poke-Mon And More. It is always on a Saturday and Sunday.

As far as the SPECIAL SCENARIO is concerned, I am not at Liberty to discuss the events of the game until, Saturday around 4 o'clock.
Cotf boosters work for me to
That sounds like an amazingly fun event. I don't think they have anything like that here in Toronto...

I'll be knocking back here again to find out how the special scenario works. I'm really curious. Seems like something that would be a blast to play with my friends. Can you discuss it over PM? Or is there an NDA in the works here?
I will be posting up the pregame information that was sent to the players, pictures and a report of the event, along with the complete details and rules of the scenario after Saturday.

Just another F.Y.I., Please make sure your clones are easily recognizable.

When we play tested the other day, it made the game go alot smoother by knowing which clones where on who's squad.

Also the Scenario should run smoothly if every one sticks to the mission.

I can't wait,
Ironlightsaber and I, have been working on this for MONTHS. every one who is participating will have a BLAST.

4 days and counting.
Make sure to bring everything you need!!! Figs. stat cards, dice and damage/force counters. None will be provided.

In case you forgot--

Where: NEXUS Gaming Convention 1339 "O" St. Second Floor above Brother's on 13th and "O" St. Entrance is located in the middle of the block on the East side of the building.

Times of tournament start/scenario start?
The 200 point Tournament starts @ 12:00 (NOON)

The Save the Masters Scenario starts at 4
(or 5 we may want to eat inbetween the tourny and scenario)
One last thing. For those of you not used to our venue, we will start at Noon SHARP, whether you are there or not. We don't wait for anybody.
Carpooling kicks ass and saves gas. It also saves money for more figs.

Do the parking meters run on Saturdays? How much are the garages around there?

I will be leaving from Des Moines early, so hopefully will get there between 11 and noon. I don't suppose anyone at the con will be in costume, huh? I thought about wearing my Death Star Independent Contractor's costume (I will be bringing the mini based on my costume), but don't want to be the only one there dressed up.

See you in a few days!

You want to park in a garage and there is one near by. It is 5 bucks to park all day long.

Yeah, I WON'T be dressing up and I really doubt a lot of others will either. It isn't that kind of Con.
