Man, I love SWM!

There's a great game: Star Wars Miniatures. It's not being made anymore, but it's really great! Fantastic sculpts and paint, and fun gameplay and stats. Hundreds of figures, perfect for the skirmish game, or the RPG.

There is apparently a 'community' of SWM players who are threatening each other with legal action and physical violence over this game, and my hat's off to them - they're clearly pretty excited about all this!

But I personally am not part of the 'community', and I don't care what they're doing, or why, or how. I like the game, I like the figures and the maps, and I like the people I play the game with. I feel pretty good about it all, and I'm so glad I have nothing to do with people who are prepared to come to blows with one another over a game involving little plastic spacemen.

Long live SWM!

How many WERE made, anyway? How many sets, and how many 60 vs 40?
I love my SWM too, and I love 'em most of all because they're... Star Wars toy soldiers.

Is this your rough draft for that acceptance speech you were talking about?  

Laughing

Not counting promos, 840.

Long live SWM!

You know, I'm not sure how many were made, in total. Hang on, I'll look it up on...






















Wait for it...





























Waaaaaaaaaait for it.........

It looks like there are 915 minis altogether. That's a lot! But you know what? I think today I'm gonna have me a game of 100 pt Rebel Storm only, on the Death Star map, and remember the good ol' days. Smile

16 sets.

10 of 60.
6 of 40.

Not including smaller sets such as scenario packs.

So, is it safe to assume that 915 includes the promos?  Dendrite quoted 840 without promos.  So, that would mean 75 promo figures?

I forget the totals myself but I recall various reasons behind each.  total without promos, then total of figs based on sculpt. so excluding reprints you would see from R&I or various packaged sets. don't ask me for numbers though... I'm not that useful

Is this going to be another Obi-Wan Kenobi speech about how things depend on your point of view?

Tongue out

Well if you count R&I (24), 3 Map Packs (6), Attack on Endor (4), Battle of Hoth (17), CW/SS Starters (12), CWB (10), and AT-AT (1)
that's 74 so the Elite AT-AT would be #75 I'm guessing
