WEG Star Wars - The Return of the Empire Strikes Back


“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...” 

“For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace & justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times... before the Empire. A young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down & destroy the Jedi Knights. Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force.”

And now Chico's going to destroy all the fluff and background you love for his own needs by gaming/playing with them in the ways I feel.. so none of this ''Such and Such was on Planet X, so they couldn't be on Planet Y and battle'' It'll all be in a alternative universe much like my Judge Dredd games/settings

Todays buy
So anyway I've been picking up the odd WEG (West End Games) Ex-Grenadier Star Wars figures for a few years which I have no idea where they are as it stands (I don't think I sold/traded them), but I have picked up a dozen or so today for a sensible value.

Anyway the idea will be to try and get a few Skirmish games in when they are painted, in my alternative universe. Maybe Luke is being hunted on a Underhive World by the Imperials/Bounty Hunters only to be betray by the Rebels just when he though he was about to escape. Feels good to start gaming in a new fresh (To me) setting :)

Oh and btw.. watch this:


And here's a tissue

  1. What a great idea Chico. I am really looking forward to seeing this 'new and improved' Chico Star Wars :-) Btw, size wise how do the minis compare with modern day 28mm for example?

    1. They are are true 25mm, the standard Grenadier miniature size. But small by modern standards, I'll do some scale shots when I get a few painted mate :)
