I don't know if anyone has thought about this or how this gets decided but something that has been bothering me a little is that we have had every faction represented (I think) in subsets except the Vong. Isn't time to show the Vong some subset love?

The each set and each subset believe it or not sort of have a theme to them. Let's look at the subsets

Battle of Theed - From the battle in EP I. There were no Vong there so there is no in the sub set.
Cantina Brawl From the Cantina in EP IV. No Vong there either. Sorry.
Jedi vs Sith - Just Force users. Vong do no tfit here either.

I am not aware of the theme for v-set 5. I can assure you they realize that Vong need more characters to see more play and be more competitive.

As for V-set 6, it is basically a year away from being released and we are just no working on the set list. We should have that set in the next few weeks. I will see if there is anything that fits with Vong for this subset. But I am not a Vong expert. More like a Vong padawan if that. So.....I will do what I can.

I know they have a theme, and it makes sence that Vong are not in those themed sets. I've seen the subset list for 5 and I was just curious as to why were not making a Vong theme subset before giving other factions more subset love. I'm not complaining, was just curious.
Thanks for looking into it.

I have no idea. I have not been in too much discussion on v-set 5.

Because it is tough to fit Vong into a more specific subtheme. Sadly due to their criminal lack of usage in the EU.

It seems like it shoukd be easy.. Call it invaders and focus on famous occupying armies or the stood apart and focus on groups who were not apart of the regular galaxy vong rhand smugglers other darkside/lightside fringe groups not associated with the jedi/sith

Yuuzhan Vong War/Vong Invasion
6 Vong pieces
4 NR (inc Borsk Fey'lya)
2 Fringe (which factored into the Vong Invasion story...maybe another portion of the Peace Brigade?)

There you go. I haven't read the stories, but I'm sure there are plenty of characters you can use.

I like this idea a lot, an 'Invasion' mini set would be awesome! and there are tons of characters that can be made, either new ones or new variations of some old ones.

Exactly what I was getting at and trying to accomplish with this thread.
Thanx Trevor, for that wonderful idea of an invasion subset. Espicially like the idea of a couple more peace brigade. (maybe our idea of certain piece from a previous thread...)

This would be a great chance to re-invision WarMaster Tsvong Lal. Also wasn't Zekk from the Young Jedi Knights books a pretty important character in the Vong war?

It's YUUZHAN Vong. Come now. ;) :twisted:

I'm sure the Yuuzhan Vong will get some love come the next couple sets.

I would actually like to see a set featuring the jedi high council with stats reflecting them at that height

I'd like to see "Lost Causes," a subset of characters from the dark times, emotionally pressing battles, and all the times where gray was the line between good and evil:

Rebel:
Brea Theran (Red Hand commander)

Imp:
Fallen Luke

Sith:
Fallen Cade

Fringe:
Kar Vastor
Quinlan Vos
Jax Pavan (better version)
Chantique

Seps:
Alto Stratus

Old Republic:
New Ulic

Suggestions mind you.

David Weeks had a good subset idea based on an NJO scene but several of the pieces from that ended up getting rotated into the base set of Scum and Villainy. Maybe this is the time to revisit it. :)

I was actually surprised when the subsets didn't follow suit of the first and second sets (republic/sep, followed by rebel/imp). I was expecting to see an OR era one (OR/Sith/mandos) and an NJO one (NR/Vong).

I love Trevor's idea. It would make a great subset. There is also the comic series INVASION (about the YV invasion) that we could pull from. It's one of the few comic line that hasn't been featured in minis yet (KOTOR, Dark Times, Rebellion, Legacy, even TOR have all had characters represented).

I think simply calling it INVASION is the way to go

I've only read a couple of those but i can already think of two or three solid mini's from that.

There you go. I haven't read the stories, but I'm sure there are plenty of characters you can use.


Just throwing some ideas out here:

6 Vong - Harrar, Yu'shaa, Shamed One, Viqi Shesh, Hostage Refugee, Yuuzhan Vong Drop Trooper
4 NR - Borsk Fey'lya, Cal Omas, Danni Quee, Kyp's Dozen Ace (new non-unique pilot)
2 Fringe - Ferroan Settler, Peace Brigade Captain

A nice bonus is that you could work in a Zonama Sekot sub-theme with Harrar, Quee, Yu'shaa, and the Ferroan if you really wanted to.

If you went the Invasion route, you would have to include Finn Galfridian. He pretty much the protagonist. I can see him with Vong Sense and Repair. But that's just what I remember from the two TPBs.
