150 Point Game of X Wing

Good afternoon,

Last night I was invited round to Tim's place to try out my final escalation list of 150 points in preparation for the X Wing event the weekend after next.


Tim rocked out a quick, but quite synergetic list...


...and...away we went!

Don't those Imperials look grand! And spread out. Hmmm...


We close...


...the Dauntless strips the Falcon's shields...



...and in return, those dirty rebels strip four shields and seven hull off the Devastator!

Arghh!

Some fancy flying later...


(will you look at those margins!)



Boom!

Bother.

The big boys break off, leaving the little dudes to buzz around.




But not before Read Admiral Chiranaeu deals to Jan Orrs.

Huzzah!



And not before time!

Bother.

The Dauntless lasted, what, three turns? Stink!

Tim flies the Falcon south, so the Ties concentrate on the B.


'Cept, Soontir, who hasn't even shot yet (arghh!). He targets Tarn...Morrison. And his dratted R7 'droid. Who forces Soontir to re-roll all of his hits. To blanks. Arghh!


And then, to add insult to injury...



Arghh!

However...



...Huzzah!

The Falcon flies back into the fray...


(landing on a rock - huzzah!)


...and out again...




...leaving destruction in it's wake.

Bother.

Again, a Tie singles out Tarn.



And again, that dratted 'droid forces me to re-roll my hits!

Arghh!

However...




Ha ha ha ha ha! Serves him jolly well right!

Dratted 'droid!

However...



...urghhh!

At this point Soontir thought that discretion was the better part of valour and flew off.

Leaving the Falcon with one shield (dratted R2), and, perhaps, one hull point chipped off.

I should have bunched up for the first joust...

Thanks for the game Tim, it was a lot of fun. And cause for some food for thought...hmmm...drop the Dauntless title, swap out...probably Winged Gundark for Dark Curse, possibly give Soontir targeting computer...hmmm...

  1. Wow, I don't know how I got so far behind on your blog, but a lot of good games being played. My favorites are the 1/72 ancients and X-Wing of course.

    1. Hi Sean,

      Yep I've had a great time in my holidays, but alas and alak, it's all coming to an end - school starts on Monday.

      Still, I'm glad you enjoyed my break - I know I did!

      Cheers,

      Nick
