    Default Alliance and Empire - Official Thread

    For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times. Before the Empire...

    Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars saga with this collection of miniatures inspired by the original Star Wars film. From the landmark films to the computer games and the novels, this set pits the Rebellion against the Empire in battles to decide the fate of the galaxy.

    IMO: The stats look good, the sculpts look awful. Glad to see some d20 Saga stats in their too!

    I don't know that one way or another. Sounds about right to me though.

    According to the listing on CoolStuffInc, the expected release date is May 23rd.

    So probably somewheres in or around there.

    And I've already got my pre-order in for three cases

    And, just in case anyone missed it, some Spanish distributors erred and shipped their products.

    As a result, a lot more stats and even the entire setlist are known if you know where to look ...

    Saw quite a bit of those on eBay -- after they closed at pretty dirt cheap prices too.

    If the two miniatures displayed in the preview are any indication of the overall quality of this set, I will not be purchasing any. I prefer GM Sarli Games, anyway; no randomization, good prices.

    Preview #2 is up

    http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x...cle/AEPreview2

    Trandoshan Merc and Force Spirit Ben.

    Seems all the concerns about Force Spirit Ben being a game breaker were for nothing. He looks pretty fragile (opponent either has to spend a Force Point and Ben goes poof on a failed save or whack his linked character).

    Thanks Donovan for posting the link. The Trandoshan mini looks pretty cool.

    de nada. I was here posting the link to the SECR preview, so I figured I might as well drop this link as well.

    And I agree on the sculpt for the Trandoshan. It'll be nice to have more than a couple Trandoshan thugs show up (since so far the only Trandos have been different versions of Bossk).

    The Trandoshan is nice, shame he has Mercenary, that will limit his usefulness.

    Obi-Wan, nice, but I'll have to wait for all the details on his abilitiy.

    Han is good, stats wise, but lets hope the real thing is better than that pic.

    Death Star Trooper, just the RS Duro stats aren't they? Never mind, I've been wanting some of these guys for a while.


    So... would it be bad form to put the leaked Set List up here? Mods?

    I have no problem with it. After all, I've seen the pix on Spanish eBay!

    SPOILER

    So as not to outright spoil it for those who want to wait, here's a link to the Alliance & Empire Set list.
