Yep once I have settled completely I will post the separate factions & then hopefully some instructions for achieving the hit zone look. I might have to call upon my friend Whitestuff to turn my photoshop instructions in to GIMP instructions to make it more available for all.

Can't wait to see more.
I am kind of leaning towards leaving the blood to be consistent.

If anybody feels like printing it out let me know what you think. I kind of like the coloured stats & they look fine to me printed, but that may be because I am too close to the work & see what I want to see. Either way if I decide to go coloured text I won't have the stat text there at all that way people can use white if they choose.

Maybe a dark red tinted version of a burn pattern on a Storm Troopers armor after he catches a "hello" from a blaster. Maybe that's crazy. What about a reddish explosion? Or a Red Giant star? Any way you go, I'll be good with it.
I like the burn mark idea if more people believe the blood is too much out of the SW theme.

I love that idea, but not knowing all the factions yet have a little concern that the other factions won't look quite right if there was only part of the logo showing.

Keep up the "genius" my man.
Will try that shortly, do you have a photo of the mini yet or a link to the correct one?

Cheers
