No, the miniatures will come in one piece. Yes, they can be painted... You can paint any miniatures...

It's possible SOME of the minis may require assembly, depending on their size and complexity.

For instance, with Imperial Assault, MOST of the minis were pre-assembled, but the AT-ATs had to have some assembly.

I'm not sure if any of the minis in this one will require that, though.

AT-STs... AT-ATs would be huge!!

Maybe because this game and that movie are not about the same thing?

Because the events in this game take place 30 years before the events in the movie?

It's worth noting that for Imperial Assault, the assembly required was "snap together part A into part B" not "get out your craft knife and glue."

Good point to emphasize.

Also, another point: they don't necessarily have to be BIG to require assembly; in Fortress America, the helicopters and lasers required some assembly (again, just the "snap together", not cutting out sprues and glue), and they are not that big. It just all comes down to complexity of the models.

Im surprised no one has said this yet, so I will. Look at the pictures. The only piece that will require assembly are the two death stars, which will simply be sticking the stand underneath. Other than that, they all look like one mold.

I don't think you can necessarily tell that just by looking. If you looked at the lasers from Fortress America, for instance, you may not be able to tell if they were one mold or not, especially if they go together snugly and the seam is minimal. In fact, the lasers are THREE pieces.

In some games, multi-mold figures come pre-assembled (and some don't). For instance, there are some figures from BattleLore that obviously are multiple molds assembled together (as evidenced when sometimes a head comes off unexpectely - it's not just "snapped off".

So I don't think the picture's we've seen is enough to go off of either way Especially since many of the pictures we've seen could easiliy just be 3d renderings of what they will look like (and not actual physical images).

I mean I do not have copy of the game in front of me, but can attest that I think the battlelore pieces you are talking about would be larger than any mini in rebellion, save the star destroyer and death stars. Now sure, we are only seeing images, but I think it is not too hard to judge the scale. So that being said, I dont see minis that small needed assembly, I can't think of how the star destroyers would even come in pieces. At the end of the day, I know whatever requires assembly, it will be a simply snap and click. Feel FFG is good about that

Probably because the official release for this is in 2016 (end of Q1?) and well after the movie's launch this week.

I heard from an inside source that the Death Star takes many years of intensive construction and materials sourcing.

Are you sure? The Empire threw together a second Death Star in less time than it takes for my town to pave the crappy road we live off of.

They could've started the second one long before the first one was destroyed.

Actually, it's canon that construction began after the battle of Yavin.

Even after the canon-wipe? I didn't know that.

I've lived in the same town for ten years and they barely have fixed any roads.

Haha, I actually forgot about that, but according to Wookieepedia, it's confirmed in the book "Star Wars: Absolutely Everything you Need to Know", published only last September.

I think I'd actually like an AT-AT mini. Could make for an interesting game of Imperial Assault, not to mention a useful tool for Edge of the Empire/Age of Rebellion play

Just saw this. You are right, I meant ST. AT-AT's would be cool, though, but they'd probably cost $100 each.
