Where's our group photo? Anyone have that to post yet? Gotta show off the shirts!

Edit:
Forgot about squad posts. Mine was:
Master Windu
Master Yoda
R2
Tarfful
x4 Wookiee Commandos

Of the four rounds, my first was the closest pointwise. I gave up all but Yoda, Tarfful and 1 commando. The last three games I only gave up 18, 0, and 18 pts. Klecser's match was the most frustrating for me, though. As he said Yoda missed 8/10 attacks. At that point i pretty much quit counting on him to hit anything. I also made the mistake of going for a whirlwind adn had it canceled by his Yoda. That hurt. It helped that his Fett really didnt want to fight that game either. Yoda and Fett wanted to go home for a beer i think.

Yet my wookiees hit almost everythign even when rolling for +15s! Love them wookiees!

There...just follow the photo link and next time you could just find the group photo! :P

Our side was cool...
My clones are in pic 14 They look like they are wearing capes Haha, yes, paper and tape capes!

My only game I won against Dumbell in the battle of the losers! Haha, it came down to pretty much the init roll too!
Good job Fish.

I think I might have thought of what to do for the next one

Hey Iron...you dont have any legos do you? I want to build a 3d Lego land that we could play a SWMB in I think itd be really fun and funny.
Thats because the rest of us were the marines that charged the main door while you guys were still playing catch up!

BTW......has Jims last clone made it to the building yet? :D

I meant we had less man power and we took the enemy OUT still before you guys. we dealed with a lost gun and still assisted by testing the middle shield! We were not coming up the back. We stormed the sep leaders and took out their rienforcement givers. My last clones were close to first through the door and died saving your guys' clones. My Spec. Ops. went unwounded until shaak sacrificed herself *sniff sniff* for your guys jedi. And Jim's clone was in the building and ended up shooting the floor and corpses of soldiers before getting mugged by the survivors. Not bad for the yougest at Nexus.
Its not our fault you guys charged head first why we actually thought out what to do We were very strategic taking good shots, and knocking them off, while covering as much as possible...

Playing against Scruffy didnt hurt us much either :P
It didnt help our cause that we couldnt get that first blasted Hailfire down. We couldnt roll worth a crap.

And onthe our side versus your side going.........our side had THE best move of the game. Jim's last clone may have been doggin' it to the fight, but that strafe run killing 13 out of 16 targets was awesome! MVP right there.

Runner up goes to Scourge (Sen~ior psycopath in the lower left). My ARC helped the start, but it was his Ki-Adi and ARCs that took on Super Grievous and his bodyguards and walked away from it! BTW, has Ki-Adi gimped up to the door yet? :D

Outstanding pics, Ironlightsaber. Like i said earlier, I'll get my pics up soon, I hope. For those who weren't there, the Clone Wars Obi-wan can be seen in pics 23 and 24, and no, the event was not sponsored by any major fast food chains (unintentional product placements in pics 1, 2, and 3.)

Another idea for the November Nexus:


RESCUE JIM'S CLONE
(Well, Jim's clone trooper, I mean. No one would actually want to save a clone of Jim.)


On a very succesful mission to rescue Jedi Masters Yoda and Mace Windu, one wayward clone trooper didn't get the memo that the battle was long over and all other troops had been extracted and redeployed. He was thought to be among the casualties, and when his body wasn't discovered, he was listed as MIA.

But one Kaminoan Ascetic knows otherwise. He has captured Jim's clone trooper, DMFC-9172 named "Hut'uun", and is holding him hostage on the world of Procrastine.

An army of ewoks and Polis Massa medics has been dispatched to retrieve this most valuable Republic asset.

I don't know what I placed, but I only lost to klecer[/Edit]

Yea, That's really unfortunate, but If anyone cares, there was A pic of me up there somewhere, wearing the digi-cam boonie hat.

I would have like to stay longer, as I did not even really get aquainted to everyone (I think I only said two words to Hothie and Scruffy); if nothing else just to actually continued conversation. You know, as one nerd to another(s), all of you seem to be fairly cool and I could probably stand speaking to you again, even in person. I couldn't say that about most gamers I've met.

All I can say is that I hope we can all do this again soon; perhaps when BHs comes out?
Wait...Jon...you did make the picture...

Haha...

Wow, Fish, you're too much . That's Awesome, It's almost like I'm really there.

[Edit] So, eh, Who's Arm is that anyway? is that Sith's?[/Edit]
First of all thank you to everyone who helped to organize this event. . It was one of the best Star Wars experiences that I have ever had (comparable to watching ANH for the first time). It was amazing, and I had alot of fun. Did somebody say something earlier about it being bi-annual? If so, then when is the next one?

PS-- Did anybody find a shiney red d20 after I left. I was in a hurry to get out as soon as it was over, because my mom kept calling my cell phone and yelling at me to hurry up, I went as fast as possible for fear of my life, and forgot my dice. I do, however, think that I got all of my pieces.

I believe that die is in my case. See me on Saturday.
I might or might not be unbiased, however here are my choices for MVP of the Special Event:

1. Admiral Pelleon
He sacrificed his Barc for us and wiped out 11-13 SB Droids in one strafe. The move right before that was to put his Barc in position for the strafe and we hoped for init. His position opened up the larger interior room which opened up all the doors in that room. By making this move, we were able to have a straighter shot at taking out the commanders that had the ability to produce more reserves every turn.

2. Sithdragon
He made all the right decisions when it came to running Obi-Wan on Barc speeder. He saved himself for the final strafe on the walkway before disembarking. Great leadership helping me save Kit Fisto.

3. myself and Scourgeofthenewrepublic
I believe that I was the only person to choose a Clone Trooper Sgt. Once we got inside the complex, there was large droid bombardment. Luckily, most of us still had clones left for fodder until our Jedi and ARC's were in a better position. As my side pushed towards the commanders with reserves, (along with Admiral Pelleon's jedi?) the Sgt helped crit away the last commander. Scourge was plugging up the doorway where General Grievous was coming from. He had two ARCs blocking the doorway and his Jedi right beside. I came back to his position with my Sgt and Kit to help finish off Grievous. Scourge rolled two straight 19's to finish off Grievous.

This was such a great time. Thank you Ironlightsaber for the T-shirts. A very unexpected gift.
Don't forget about my clones. They did 100 Damage to Durge in one turn. Not one of them missed an attack against him.
its dumbbells arm
Next time the "Draste Dirty Dozen" are together I would like to get a group picture with everyone who was involved in the Special Event (that's why I didn't post up that group shot to begin with). Possibly at the next Nexus.....

Dumbbell, you have the red die? Can you get it to ILikeYoda? Thanks. Scruffy still has something that someone forgot at the convention. If you think it's yours just PM him with what it is and he'll get it back to you.

Jim had the play of the game with that BARC move in my view (if only I would have killed that BARC with the destroyer!!!) but it's hard to say if there would be one MVP. I think you all did well together and everyone was playing to protect everyone on their side.

Soon I'll be posting up the Special Event player information and rules that we used as well as links to the stat card sheets so that everyone on the board can use them. Maybe a map maker on the boards would be interested in recreating Scruffy's 3D models of the base and refinary components into 2D form.

I'll also post the back of the shirts on the boards so everyone can see the logos I made of the particapant's board names.

I'd like to thank Klecser for helping to test the custom stats and helping to play the Separtists during the event and I'd like to thank Nimzomitch for helping to test the custom stats and for letting us use his Clone Strike starter map. And to all of the players--thanks for the kind words, it makes the time and effort that Scruffy and I put into this well worth it.

Nebraska IS the place for SWM!!!!!

Awesome! I meant to ask if you had the file for that. I tried to scan the shirt but its just a hair too big. Post that and its going up as my wallpaper!
outstanding game guys it was abit long at the end but it was just friggen sweet I thought Ki Adi was done for when I blocked Greivos in the roomwith Ki Adi and my Arc Troopers but I came back upstairs from my smoke break expecting my jedi and arcs to be dead and then I saw what I am going to refer to as General G's enima ( how else could I put it 12 clones, 2 arcs, Clone commander, Kit Fisto and Clone sgt ) backing me up that was just Awsome.

the mass strafe that Palleon pulled off was just friggin sweet every ones CE's working to full potential great game to The Dirty Dozen of Nexus Rescue the Masters


PS. If anybody is interested I drew first Blood on Durge with an Arc trooper and first Blood on General G with an AoE from Ki Adi And finished General G in this order Arc trooper Crit Ki Adi attack then Ki Adi CE to the other Arc to Crit
but the tourny I did terible Dont even Know what I placed
It didnt help our cause that we couldnt get that first blasted Hailfire down. We couldnt roll worth a crap.

And onthe our side versus your side going.........our side had THE best move of the game. Jim's last clone may have been doggin' it to the fight, but that strafe run killing 13 out of 16 targets was awesome! MVP right there.

I think he beat Jims clone to the door but then went back down the ramp
Ironlightsaber just got me the design on the back of our T-shirts for the desktop. If any of you guys want the pic for your computer email me and i will send it to you. :D
man i wish i got in


saaaaaaad panda
I'm sort of against the idea of an MVP, because, as I said earlier, we had a good mix of chiefs and indians there. I mean, we all could have been trying to control everybody, and I think it would have taken even longer because of all of the differing opinions. With 9 Jedi players, there are 9 ways of doing the scenario. And those would be even different than the run-throughs that Scruffy and Iron did. We'd probably still be beating our heads against each other trying to be the "Most Valuable." I was happy to stay back, let others take control of the board, and do as I was told, as long as I had the big picture of the battle. I understood the strategy that was being used, chimed in every once in a while if I thought I could help, and let the leaders lead. Does that make the indians' contributions any less valuable? There were some notable accomplishments, Jim's BARC, Sith's Obi on Speeder, and Scourge's blocking Grievous among them, but the mission would not have been a success (or maybe as successful) if all players hadn't contributed. I'm happy we all got some sweet shirts, and I'm actually happier that there wasn't an MVP. Yin yang, people, we need leaders and followers to be successful.

I have to agree with Hothie in that there wasn't a MVP and that there shouldn't be one. His points on leaders and the support is well made.

Scruffy and I debated how we would give away a prize for first place for this scenario. Would first place be the first person to get to the masters? or the person who defeated the last enemy? or the person who defeated the toughest boss (GG Hunter of Jedi)? and so on and so forth.

We decided that if we had only one prize that we would award it to the best sportsman who would have been picked by the other players. As the time got closer to the event Scruffy was putting all his effort into finishing the base and he didn't have time to devote to a single fig as a prize, so I figured that the t-shirts for everyone would make a good prize.

True Dat
16th place huzzah! The team as a whole was awsome. I may not have done anything memorable even though shaak sacrificed herself but my guys went in first outside and I think got in the kill shots on the hailfires and dwarf. Everyone contributed without that 6 clone force jedi and other troops the battle would have been very ugly(or more ugly if you look at it that way)
Well this is Jim,

my squad
palp, sith lord 62
vader, jedi hunter 75
thrawn 37
2x twilek bodyguards 20
stormtrooper 5
total 199

I think the idea of an mvp would be a cool idea because you know everyone keeps pointing out my barc strafe and im greedy and want something. and that lone trooper did make it in and did take a shot on grievous hunter of jedi. of course he missed but you know he was there and thats all that matters. but everyone did a great job and there were some tremendous moments from everybody. scourge taking on grievous by himself was just awesome. Im not a huge tourny player but that was some of the most fun playing people i have ever had. I like yodas padme bodygaurd squad tore me up cause i was stupid with thrawn. then there was scruffy who i really screwed over on map but still put up a fight. Mike and Jacen put up a great fight with a pretty much duplicate squad and with each of us having a betrayel it was a great game. 66 survivor we danced around each other for a while and finally faced each other and i was able to pull out the victory in the end. That was some of the best games i have ever played. The scenario was expletive, expletive, expletive, amazing and the thing that made it awsome was after my barc blew up and cloud of smoke and fire was put in its stead, that was awsome. It was a blast and thanks to everyone for makeing it memorable (i promised myself i wouldn't cry) ...... choked back that tear. finally was that trooper really stupid he lived and if hailfires had come in from the back you all would of been begging me to fire that BMFG. thank you all again. p.s. cool i got eighth place sweeeeeeeeeet!!!
then there was scruffy who i really screwed over on map but still put up a fight. !!!

Dude that was my favorite game of the day.
Unlike Colby, You actually came in and faught me.

Thanks for the great game man.
Come on Jim! One clone? One clone? If they brought people in the back, you would have just got shot right away anyway. :P [sarcasm]"Woah! Look at that blue Clone! He just took down two Hailfires and 10 battle droids on his own! And he didnt even get shot!"[/sarcasm] Just messing though!
I came in 12th, and I was 2-2. Good tournament, with amazing squads. I can't wait to see what squads we will have with COTF and BH soon.

I was thinking today about the next Nexus. If you make t-shirts for the next one, might I suggest doing a Harley Davidson style logo, with something to the effect of Nexus being the Sturgis of SWM. Perhaps you could do something that wouldn't infringe on any copyright laws, although I have no idea what we could get away with. I would be willing to pre-order a shirt to help with the costs.

Yes, indeed. I would be willing to purchase my shirt as well. I'm having a long debate with myself on whether I wear my T-shirt to Krypton this Saturday or to keep it hanging in my closet, since it is ONE OF A KIND!

The collector in me might win this debate.
