Hello! Quick question: Are there any current armies that would be well suited for a Star Wars game, and if so what are they? I know Rebel Guerrillas is pretty obvious, but don't know what best suits the Empire/Clones/Droids, if anything. Would you just use HDF for Empire? What about Clones and Droids? I'm sure it's a silly question, but I'm rather imperceptive and am having trouble connecting the dots for myself. Thanks in advance!
I think it really depends on your interpretation of the SW universe and how varied you want your armies to be, but in general everything in SW is just a different spin on basic human armies with some slight differences. So theoretically you could just play them all as HDF, or even all as Rebel Guerrillas. Other armies you could look at are the Machine Cult, Ratmen Clans, Soul-Snatchers and TAO Coalition, which could also represent different aspects of these armies.
Anyway, lately we've had a lot of people asking for SW armies, so maybe we could start making some army lists for them. We did have some ideas for a SW-themed one-off game, so maybe that should be a priority as well...
Ah, thank you! Looking at it, I think a mix of Rebel Guerrillas and HDF ought to serve my purposes, and I can just hodge-podge anything I want more specificity with. I'm considering signing on to a Patreon package in the future to fiddle with the calculator for a spell and try to create some more diverse Warrior Monks (like a "Dark Lord of the Shadow Monks" and a "Saluting Goatee Monk"), but for now I'm sure I can manage with what's there.
