Mandalorians. Warriors and hunters behind sturdy, customized armor and T-visor helmets. What makes a Mandalorian? And what makes someone not a Mandalorian?

Reinforcements have arrived, and they are wacky.

Intel reports an elite group, unknown in number, who report directly to one of the highest-ranked Imperials in the Western Reaches.

Status of the queen is unknown, but we’ve been able to dig up some dirt on a few of Kraviss’s lackeys. . .
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.

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.
This archeologist runs into places remembered only in myths and rumors with nothing more than her wits and a blaster to get her through. Bounty hunters and murder droids help sometimes, too. The only sure thing is that there are no sure things, and the rogue treasure hunter Doctor Aphra breaks all the rules. Read on to see her immortalized Lego minifigure form!
I didn’t fall into the Unknown Regions, I’ve just been super-busy with work and unable to post and write as much as I’d like to. But I wanted to give a heads up to what projects I have in the…oh I do hate the phrase “in the pipeline.” Iminent? Forthcoming? Sure, one of those.
