Customized Star Wars Command Figures

Yak reader Darth Ray writes in with a story of a special project he and his son have been working on involving the new Star Wars Command game from Hasbro.

“My son was inspired by the latest episode of “The Realm Recap“. He has started painting (or should it be called re-painting?) Star Wars Command figures. He started with the Ewoks. The attached picture shows the painted Command Ewoks and the Hasbro/Lego Ewoks that inspired the design.” “We’ve always said a Star Wars license should something like this!”

Excellent work Ray! I think the Command line is a perfect “starter pack” for people that are interested in customizing but don’t want to tackle painting a more expensive action figure quite yet. The painting of Command figure could serve as a canvas for honing/developing skills before moving up to a larger scale.

Star Wars: Armada Miniatures Game

ArmadaBox

Fantasy Flight Games (Star Wars: X-wing™ Miniatures) has published official details for the new two-player miniatures game, Star Wars: Armada

Massive Star Destroyers fly to battle against Rebel corvettes and frigates. Banks of turbolasers unleash torrential volleys of fire against squadrons of X-wings and TIEs. Engineering teams race to route additional power to failing shields. Laser blasts and explosions flare across the battlefield. Even a single ship can change the tide of battle.

In Star Wars: Armada, you assume the role of fleet admiral, serving with either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. You assemble your fleet and engage the enemy. Using the game’s unique maneuver tool, you steer your capital ships across the battlefield, even while squadrons of starfighters buzz around them. Then, as these ships exchange fire, it’s your job to issue the tactical commands that will decide the course of battle and, perhaps, the fate of the galaxy.
