X Wing South Island Regional Tournament

Good evening

I had a great time at the SI Regionals today. Bat reps to follow, but first some eye candy...








Yes, that's Chewie in the Falcon, with Lando in a borrowed YT up against three Firesprays. Apparently the Firesprays lost out.

There were four players running YT-1300s in various guises - but only one list with an Outer Rim Smuggler. The rest were - I guess still are - the competition doesn't finish 'till tomorrow, (but I've got a Joe Satriani concert in Wellington tomorrow night...and an earlier than expected flight to get there). All odds are on Tim's list to win out though.






...and some not eye candy...


...but at least my costume got me some free dice!


And a good time was had by all! Thanks Tim for organising it, and thanks Simon for running the draws and keeping the scores.

    1. Do you mean a zoot suit? Chewie is too hirsute for a zoot...

      (And Tim was the only othe in character, dressed as he was like Han. Which was ironic really, since he left Han at home.)

  3. Haha Nick I didn't really realize I was dressed up - that's just how I dress sometimes...oops.

    However today Brian took out the day and I only got 5th with four wins and three losses. A great weekend to be had by all though!

    Looking forward to our next bout!

    1. Hi Tim,

      That's funny, you looked a great Han! Three losses? That does surprise me. Lots of missles? Still, glad to hear that you had a good time. Me too!

      Cheers,

      Nick

    1. It was really cool to see so many ships out and about. Hand made boards too, no less.
