Another Money Sink!

Good afternoon,

I have recently become aware of this...

My chances of saving up for a new guitar amp are ever diminishing!

And subsequent from that post, here is a demo...


I believe that I overheard in the clip that the ships are going to be "relative" sizes, rather than accurately scaled - as they pointed out, to get their CR-90 into the bay of an Imperial class star destroyer, it'd have to be almost as big as the board. While I get that, I am disappointed by that decision - I much prefer the look of a constant scale on the board. In my opinion, they should have designed from the top down, so that the CR-90, even though it would be tiny, would at least be scaled consistently with the Imperial class ISD...though then of course you'd have the trouble of representing the fighters. Perhaps they could have been counters...

Either way, the super star destroyers, the Executor class, would be problematic...

    1. Ha! You're quite right John, and you should have heard the axe through the kind of amp amp I've got my eye on. I was @ music practice last Thursday night using a mate's set up. That amp and his pedal board almost made my guitar's sound eye watering!

      But a $1000 is so far away, and these toys are so much closer, financially speaking...

    2. I hope these are not painted straight out of the box. That (and the price) is the one complaint I have about X-Wing. Thanks for posting. I'm sure I'll be hearing about this from my sons...well, better that than an X-Box game!

  3. Hi,

    Yep, the capital ships are pre-painted, the fighters are not. I like the pre-painted minis - I've got enough of the unpainted kind to last a life time! And yes, the price is, well, a little on the pricey side. Still, you seem to get quite a bit for your buck.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    1. Oh mate! Admit it, you'd be annoyed had you not known about this game before it came out. You've still got, what, another 6 months to save up your pennies?
