X Wing at Comics, Game 4

Good morning,

While I'm waiting for some undercoat to dry...my last game of the X Wing Comp at Comics vs. Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles and Biggs Darklighter.

Suffice it to say...I wasn't in the running for first place!

Anyway, we set up down the eastern flank.


And, with the first shots, my opponent (Mike? I want to say Mike...no, Scot. I'm pretty sure it was Scot. I'll call him Scot...) inflicted two critical hits on my TIE A.

I could see that this wasn't going to end well...


Still, we all piled in...


...and bang, down goes Soontir Fel. Just like that.


The traffic jam continued...


...so I flew out my crippled TIE A to see if it'd have better luck getting in behind.


Even with Wedge sticking his neck out...


...he still managed to take down one of my Acadamey pilots.

No real surprise, one has to roll one less defense die when attacked by Wedge.


Then Biggs takes out another Acadamy pilot.



That's three of my fighters down, with another critically damaged, with barely a scratch on the Rebels!

The traffic really has freed up a lot!


Then Luke gets stuck into the fray.


At this point, it was just getting embarrassing!



Really embarrassing.


So there I was. Down to just one Academy pilot...


...who...


...flying like a mad man...


...finally takes out Biggs!

And he almost gets away with it.


Almost.




(Opps, I think I should have rolled one less dice there, against Wedge. Still...)

And that was the end of the afternoon. Four games, one win.

Still...a good time was had by all!

Thanks for putting it on guys,

Nick

  1. Great game, X-wings are sooooo expensive, Ys'and As'are better value for money but slightly less bang for buck I reckon

    1. Cheers Al. Yep, it is a great game. Dunno, I think the X Wings...well, I think you gets what you pays for. Y Wings - slow, low fire power, but built strong, A Wings, fast, low fire power, fragile.

      Made quite an asset out of the B Wing's slowness in my last game - next bat rep!
