Imperial Assault

No, it’s not another Executive Order, it’s a miniatures skirmish boardgame from Fantasy Flight Games (FFG). Here’s there advert blurb; “Imperial Assault is a strategy board game of tactical combat and missions for two to five players, offering two distinct games of battle and adventure in the Star Wars™ universe!”

FFG has made the rules and a few other resources free here; Imperial Assault

It’s a pretty decent game with quality miniatures and tiles to play with. It does require custom FFG Star Wars dice to play and the rules layout is a little clunky. It took me a while to get the rhythm of a turn, that could just be me though. It is fun though and I’ve painted the few minis that I own as my friend Dave has the main game and all the other minis.


The minis come in a nice hard plastic grey with really crisp detail, the Rebel scum are molded in a tan colored plastic. These two Imperial special agents just need a bit of highlighting to keep their whites tidy but I’m not going to do anything else to their bases.

I’ve run out of matte spray to finish up the warbikes so they have to wait a day until I can get to the shop.
