OH MY FREAKING GOD.

I've been playing this game for a while ( http://www.wizkidsgames.com/pirates/pirates_article.asp?cid=39303 ), totally love it. But now they've come out with a Star Wars version. It looks amazing. I'm totally buying it. I'm totally seeing these ships used for the d20 game as mini's.

You are just now finding these? You are out of touch my friend.

The game is pretty good with just the minis but then you can augment your actions with the cards and it is what Pirates should have been. I'm a big fan of the put-together games.

I like to get star maps from my local observatory and use them as play-mats. It adds a neat feel to the game.

I don't have many of them yet, but they are super cool and fun just to put together.

Well make sure to get the special kit with the huge Super Star Destroyer.....the thing is massive and looks pretty good.

That will be an interesting set nonetheless but my friends and I have decided to play only with spacecraft.

It is the same way with the plastic miniatures. We prefer to have space battles instead of ground-assaults as well as it is much cheaper than buying all the sets.

Whatever you do Moritz stay away from the Transformers cards because the mechanics are crap and the robots look okay in vehicle mode but look like crap in robot mode. It is a total waste of money.
