2015 Comics Compulsion X Wing Miniatures Game Store Championship...

...was not won by me!



'Twas the first time I'd flown my Firespray (Boba Fett, no less - less maneuverable, yet more agile than the Falcon. If that makes sense. Which it probably doesn't...), as well as my first taste of using Mangler Cannons.

I came in the middle somewhere - two wins, two losses.

Still, it was a great day's entertainment...and a good time was had by all!!

Thanks Tim,

Nick

Scum vs. Empire

Good evening,

Yesterday I had my first game in ages. It's been a busy old term...

Anyhow, Tim invited me round to his place for an afternoon of gaming, so I broke out my newly purchased (or received - these were the last of my parent's voucher from last year) Scum and Villainy, Zeds and M3 Interceptors.


To go up against my seven wee fighters, Ben broke out the big guns...


That's two Phantoms yo!

Anyhow, the asteroids left a bit of a chute down my left which allowed for a bit of a formation to congregate, while Ben zipped up the middle.


I was able to keep my formation wheeling right...beyond all expectations...mine, that is...while Ben split his formation to send Mauler to bother my flank.

Bother.


Still...



...it wasn't all bad! Ha! Echo taken out by a bunch of two shot shooters!

Ha!

Unfortunately, next turn...





...Boom! There goes one of my Binarye pirates.

12 points to Ben...40 points to me!!

Or...



...a bunch of points to me! Whisper taken out by a trio of pee shooters!

Huzzah!

So...it was time to chase Mr Mithel.


Who himself...



...was not without his bite.

Bother.

Some chasing continued...



...whereupon Ben conceeded.

Sweeeeetttt!

Now that was a fun game!

Thanks Ben,

Nick
