I’ve been waiting for this thing for awhile. After the announcement/release of the Descent app that let’s you play the campaign without a DM, my only wish was it to come out for Imperial Assault. Heck, just keeping track of everything would be a lifesaver. Then Fantasy Flight Games released Mansions of Madness Second Edition which did an incredible job with the app experience.
And now we finally have it for Imperial Assault. It is not said to replace the base game or skirmish mode but be another way to play it. Can’t wait to try this out.
It has been a little while but the rag-tag group of Rebels are ready to mount another mission. This time they are heading back to Hoth. Will they continue the campaign with another victory or will they feel the sting of the Empire’s grip?
Read the report after the jump!

This is the continuing story of four heroes in the Star Wars universe. They started at Hoth with a depressing defeat (check what happened here) first time out. Now they are rushing out for a side mission. Read about their adventures after the jump!

I’m finding myself in a lot of campaign based board games recently. They have a story and a good theme so that is probably why I am drawn to them. It does potentially limit new additions to my Now Rolling group of articles since I can only write about one game so many times. That is where this Game Stories will come in to play.
After each game session of a campaign, I’ll summarize & spin a story about the game(s) in an article here. They will contain spoilers of what happens but they will be stylized so it might not be as apparent what the spoiler actually is in some instances.
Hit the jump to read the first game story for Imperial Assault: Return to Hoth!

Here’s an versatile army soldier from the base game of Imperial Assault. They are lot of ways to use this guy so I figured it would be a good idea to have him ready to go with the next campaign. Who can’t use a good soldier?
Arm up, soldier!

With three officers in the base game of Imperial Assault, they all need a different look. And it is just more fun that way, don’t you think? Like the previous Imperial Officer, this guy was painted right after the Stormtroopers.
Captain Charles Irris on deck!

As the new year begins, a new Imperial Assault campaign is coming! I have yet to play the Return to Hoth campaign and thought it be nice to have some if not all of these figures painted up and ready to go to take down the empire.
Do you need healing?

To pad out the Scum & Villiany faction, I had to make sure I had some hired guns. Plus it is fun to paint things other than humans from time to time. There are two of these guys in the expansion so I wanted to experiment with different color skin and outfit. Here is the first of two Hired Guns, I went with the more traditional route here.
Fingers on the trigger!

Once again, another hero painted miniature so the Rebel Alliance has some pretty on the board and not jealous of the Empire side of things. This character will definitely be interesting to get to the board in the next campaign.
Time to go back to Hoth!

Now hear me out now! There is a case for why Imperial Assault uses dice in a unique way. I’m telling you, trust me. So check out this fun dungeon crawler/skirmish game with me that happens to be in the world of Star Wars.
