Clone Strike anticipation

Last week, I found a very cheap supplier of single miniatures from the Clone Strike expansion for Star Wars Miniatures. Coolstuffinc.com has, on average, the lowest prices I’ve seen for Clone Strike figures. I was especially happy to see their very low prices for “bulk” infantry such as Clone Troopers and Battle Droids.
kwc and I purchased a bunch of figures which should arrive within a week. He concentrated on Jedi, while I went for the large groups of basic troops. In addition to the figures that are coming, we both have a handful of figures already, including Jango Fett and General Kenobi for kwc and Darth Maul for me.
Here’s the list of incoming figures:
kwc’s list:
C3-PO
General Veers (These first two will help play scenarios with our classic figs)
ARC Trooper
7 Clone Troopers
4 Clone Trooper Commanders
2 Clone Trooper Sergeants
Agen Kolar
3 Jedi Guardians
Ki-Ad-Mundi
Kit Fisto
Luminara Unduli
Mace Windu
Qui-Gon Jinn
Saesee Tinn
Asajj Ventress
2 Dark Side Acolytes
Durge
Aurra Sing
Zam Wesell
my list:
Aayla Secura
20 Clone Troopers
4 Clone Trooper Commanders
4 Clone Trooper Grenadiers
4 Clone Trooper Sergeants
Luminara Unduli
Asajj Ventress
20 Battle Droids
4 Battle Droid Officers
Destroyer Droid
4 Geonosian Overseers
20 Security Battle Droids
10 Super Battle Droids
Zam Wesell
So kwc can bring the Jedi action and I can field hordes of disposable troops. Fun all ’round.

But haven’t you ever wanted to answer the burning question of: “Who would win at the skirmish level, sand people or gungans?”
(These miniature games — SW and the battletech one — sound fun. A shame there’s nobody around here for me to play with. On the other hand, it would be another moneysink…)

The Gungans have an edge there, sadly. *
They actually pumped the Gungan infantry up quite a bit, possibly to try and make them more interesting to players.
They are a lot of fun. Star Wars is much simpler than Mechwarrior, which makes for easier pickup games and introduction of new players, which is nice.
*Though in my case, the Tuskan Raiders win by default, since I actually have some of those.

They are a lot of fun. Obviously, “they” as in “the games,” not “Gungans.” 🙂
