X Wing with Brucie. Game Two.

Good evening,

And on to game two.

After giving me a sound thrashing, Bruce was keen for another [50 point] game, this time taking both an X and Y Wing. Just short of the end of the alphabet...



I took the same TIE Is...


I'm not sure, but I think Bruce took a wrong turn here...


...so I took some advantage of his inexperience!


I stripped his shields...


...and poured on the pain!


Right, with the Rookie Pilot out of the way, time to concentrate on Dutch Vander.

From Brue's perspective, Dutch was in a target rich environment! He target locked the Sabre Squadron pilot...



...how'd I survive that?! Must have had good evade rolls. Though, if memory serves, Bruce did strip the TIE I down to it's last remaining hull point, so I flew it out of harms way, for the time being.

And flew Soontir right into Dutch so neither could fire at each other. (The Y Wing was equipped with an ion turret.)



We separate, I turn back for another try...




...and get done for my trouble!

Right, time to Push the Limit to pile up those focus and evade tokens.





Huzzah!

A much closer game this time. And a good time was had by all. So much so, that Bruce was keen for another go the following day with 100 points worth.

Which, duely, we did.

Nick
