X Wing South Island Regionals Game 2

Vs Andrew, Boba Fett and Rexler Brath.

Good evening,

Well, after the success of my first game, I was sent up to Table 6 to face Andrew and his hand painted models.

We set up, with Andrew hiding in the corner while I picked a lane between the obstacles for the Devastator to slide down. Drift down. What do whales do anyway?

Again, I tried to set Soontir up for a flank attack.


Andrew swung in...Soontir swung in...


...and we all bashed into each other!


Rexler flies behind the pile up...


...whereas I stall the Devastator, miscalculating what Andrew would do with Boba, and so running Soontir into the side of the Rear Admiral.

Rexlar takes chunks out of Soontir.

Drats.

I try to clear the log jam...



...too late!

Double drats!

Time to turn this ship around!




And turn things around I did!

Huzzah!

Boba and the RAC go head to head.


Literally!


Twice! For two bounds neither of us budged.


Then...Andrew blinked first! :-)



Though he probably wished he hadn't!

You gotta love Expose with a target lock!

(To be fair, Andrew's attack dice had been consistently atrocious all through the game - he should have taken much larger chunks out of the Rear Admiral with his Defender before Rexler went bye bye...)

Thanks for the game Andy!

Nick
