X-Wing Weekend of fun: home and away

Had a great day of X winging on Sat with 4 of us getting some good games in.  A lot movement this time round.  Used a mix of lists and had some very good games... Learned that Y wings are hard to kill.  Used my Sontir Fel swarm list for first couple of games against Imperials and Scum

List works really well (at least for me) and this time I flew the Tie's in a lose swarm so I didn't have to worry about trying to formation fly them.

My repainted Ties fight rebel imperials???
In my last game I opted for a Slave based list as I wanted to give it another go and ended up taking

As a list it worked ok but I moved badly and got mauled by Jeff's 2 ship scum list.

Also tried to beat my 6 yr old again this morning because in his words "I need the practice" didn't go to well. Quick start rules Boba Fett vs 2 X wings and once he didn't miss

My defence rolls vs his attack rolls *sigh*

High Elves for sale

Taking the plunge and admitting that I simply don't enjoy using my High Elves.  Will be putting the whole lot up on Trade Me over the next few days.

Listings are here


If you search my blog you can see what they look like.  Also putting some of my FOW stuff up as well.

GF9 X Wing play mat

Got this little beauty in the post this morning.  Looks great not quite what I expected in terms of the backing material but still very good quality.  Also some good service from Seriously Board in Wellington.


Only thing left to do is to put some masking tape around the back of the edges to strengthen it.x

X-Wing Squad lists used so far, where to for Escalation

Having a decent Squad Builder on my phone I've been spending a fair bit of time making and re-making Squadron lists but like most players (I suspect) only a few of those have seen combat.  So far I've taken the following lists into action (that I can recall).

X-Wing updates & the future of WHFB/FOW?

Its only been a few weeks but I am absolutely loving X-Wing and my collection, or at least what I want to collect, is nearly complete.  My latest acquisition was this little beauty a Tie Defender.  I was considering the Phantom but liked the look of the defender more and its ability to do a 'white' Korrigan turn.
