As I wait to write up my next Warclouds over Woolston batrep, I thought you might enjoy this. I know I did!
Last Friday Mark D came round and we pulled out the X Wing minis. A 100 point game, he took the Falcon flown by Chewie with a weapon specialist and engineer, along with Wedge with R2, and I flew Vader with assault missles and Squad Leader, Soontir with Push the Limit and...that other TIE Interceptor named pilot, whose name escapes me.
For good reason!
He near'y got off a shot.
Mind you, I had managed to pound the Falcon, striping its shields and chewing away at its hull. Get it? Chewing away?!
So Mark flew him away a bit, and I decided to concentrate on Wedge.
In the next two rounds I had stripped him of his shields and down to one remaining hull point.
So Mark flew him away too.
Still, it hadn't been all one sided, Soontir was also down to his last hull point, and Vader down to his last two.
So we played rock around the rocks for a bit.
"I have you now," said Soontir to Wedge.
And he dodged every. Single Shot!
Alas for Soontir, Wedge kinda turned the tables...
It was at this point that Vader decided that discretion is the better part of valour...
...and zipped off into hyperspace.
Leaving one very satisfied Wookie!
Well played Mark. Well played.
