Paperminis: Mimban Stormtroopers

Solo: A Star Wars Story introduced us to several new branches of the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps. During the battle on Mimban, several stormtroopers are seen in dark and muddy costume. I am uncertain as to whether the armour looked muddy after being on Mimban for so long, or if it was some sort of purposeful mud camouflage pattern. Here is […]

Paperminis: Human Jedi Knights

It has come to my attention that I do not have any Star Wars RPG paper miniatures intended for use as Jedi. So as starters, here is a set of eight Jedi (two colour-variant sets of four designs) to be used as generic human Jedi. They are garbed in prequel-era Jedi Knight robes with either blue or green lightsabres. Too […]

Verkle Artwork

And then it came to pass a couple of weeks back that a number of Star Wars Twitterfolk began talking about an animal. Specifically, the carcass of the creature that was the bait which drew Chewbacca and resulted in him, Luke, Han, Threepio and Artoo being captured in an Ewok net trap on Endor. Since its appearance in Return of […]

EOTE: Rescue on Crait

The first RPG session I ran during the Geomatics Carnival 2018 at UiTM Arau was Fantasy Flight Games’ Edge of the Empire/Age of Rebellion. The players, who were UiTM students, used the Legends of the Galaxy pregenerated character sheets I used in class previously. Edge of the Empire Rescue on Crait The YT-2000 light freighter Sitichepa (I’m… sure this is an […]

A VCX-100 in Class for Some Reason

A VCX-100 model transport made an appearance in class during lessons today. I used Kahoot for a live online exercise with my classes this week. The exercise covered Transition words. What better imagery can I use for Transitions other than hyperspace corridor scenes. Believe it or not by 2005 and after 6 major Star Wars motion picture releases, we were […]

EOTE: Dude! Where’s My Starship?

It began as a impromptu invitation to a roleplaying game (RPG) session. Suddenly there I was running a short Star Wars Edge of the Empire scenario for my colleague Rizal at my office. Commandeering Oskara’s character folio, Rizal became the human male bounty hunter known as Riz who owns the YKL-37R Nova Courier named Glamorous Hedgehog manufactured by Gallofree Yards. […]

Bored at Work But Not Really

Between semesters, I need not head to classes to teach. I do have a lot of work at the office though such as grading papers, planning for the next semester, employee assessment forms, workshops to attend and things such as the previous day’s brochure to create. So, alone in my room sometimes I just set my RPG gear and paperminis […]

A Last Jedi Review

No Spoilers Here We saw The Last Jedi last Wednesday on opening night. I went in with zero expectations. I did not read spoilers. I had no fan theories. All I wanted to do was to catch a Star Wars movie. Director Rian Johnson crafted quite a densely packed and layered film. After that, I needed some days to process […]

Force and Destiny: The Lost General

Force and Destiny: The Lost General As role-playing practice for my English theatre arts class, I ran a FFG Star Wars RPG session for the students. If playing a space swashbuckling character who might also be an alien or a droid does NOT stimulate their acting chops, I have no idea what will! Although it was technically a Force and Destiny game, […]

The Star Wars Show Fan Art

The Star Wars Show crew asked for some fan art of the Star Wars Show from the Twittersphere, so being a Twitterspheroid (or a spheroid of some sort) I thought I would oblige them. So here we have Andi Gutierrez in an Imperial gunner costume, Anthony Carboni in some smuggler’s outfit with CH-33Z in his arms and Pablo Hidalgo at […]
