Is it possible to imagine a game like this in the Star Wars universe? I would love it, and FFG has some licences to develop SW games. I love the concept of this game, the mechanics but the world of Terrinoth... is not amazing.

I could see X-Wing/Armada being adapted for (equally two - 40k/Epic - levels of) Star Wars ground combat in principle, maybe with this game's type of dials instead, but definitely no rank and file game, and since they already have Imperial Assault, I wouldn't quite hold my breath.

Make your own. Take Imperial Assault miniatures, slap them on X-Wing bases based on who is fast, who is slow etc. etc. and come up with some basic terrain rules. There you go, Star Wars Miniature Combat game

Imperial Assault isn't army combat though. It's small-scale squad combat.

Most of the combat from the films was very small scale skirmishes as well.

Even Hoth and Endor were tiny little battles.



Maybe FFG is holding out for a Clone Wars mass battle game.

You mean like Star Wars Miniatures Battles? If you really want "army" games, 25-28mm is not the way to go. Proper use of 6-10mm will be much better for an "army" minis game. Well, that's for me since I only have a 3x4.5 table available at home.

Cheers,

5-6 AT-ATs that hold 40 troops each. One HAVw Juggernaut.

Yeah. It was tiny.

For me Imperial Assault and this game are different scales, IA is played with 6-10 troops and this game is going to be played with about 100 each side.

But anyway, SW universe, L5R or anyone different from Terrinoth could be nice, FFG fantasy universe is... not good enough.

Terrinoth is pretty bland and generic.

With how many games and expansions, it's lore is all still ho hum.

Maybe that's the point though, to be so generic they can use if for whatever game they decide to stick it in.

It has to be on purpose with the quality available in the Arkham games and LotR LCG.

If they port this over to L5R, I'd be all over it.

I can appreciate the desire for nice Android things, but I just don't see how this sort of game would fit the Android universe at all. There aren't any army battles there; everything is underhanded, back-door deals and cyber runs.
