[SECURE TRANSMISSION FROM THE WESTERN REACHES]
Intel reports an elite group, unknown in number, who report directly to one of the highest-ranked Imperials in the Western Reaches. Seemingly overnight, General Kraviss and his elite forces, nicknamed the Ghost Division, have taken the farming planet of Kufra and dug in using the ancient palace as a base of operations. Status of the queen is unknown, but we’ve been able to dig up some dirt on a few of Kraviss’s lackeys. . .
I did a mock up of a marketplace stall for my Lego Star Wars MOCs/city. For some reason about a week ago I thought it’d be funny to have blue space pineapples as a weird alien fruit, and thus the “Gaushin” was born. Here’s an alien lady selling some out of a small stall I threw together while working on other ideas.
Awesome finds at fun little book shops in the West Virginia and the other Virginia. I believe in buying used books, keeping them in good shape and giving them more than one life.

Shout-outs to Books and Other Found Things in Leesburg, Virginia and Fuzzy Dog Books and Music in Charles Town, West Virginia. Might I add that Fuzzy Dog had possibly the best organized Star Wars section I’ve ever seen, with every arc/series grouped together. It wasn’t in chronological order, but at least some order helps when you’re hunting down bits and pieces of larger series!
Is this the summer I finally build that Imperial base? Budget and time permitting, that’s a firm maybe – but hey, this is a good start in my book.
Marvel’s Star Wars: Age of Rebellion is the second wave of one-shot comics exploring major and minor characters through new bite-sized stories. This time we jump into the Galactic Civil War, also known as the Original Trilogy era. Do these new stories hold up to the overall great Age of Republic stories? Read on to find out with a recap of the first three issues – Princess Leia, Grand Moff Tarkin, and the 3-part Special.

Gathered here are the results and personal notes of my most recent field tests. As the pathetic rebellion grows in size and experience, our Empire must adapt to remain victorious against these threats.
Marvel’s Star Wars: Age of Republic takes us back to the good ol’ days of the Prequel Era of the saga with short tales of the benevolent Jedi, scheming Sith Lords, and opportunistic agents of the criminal underworld.
