Brothers in Scum, Part Deux - Another X Wing Bat Rep

Good morning,

So, we set up again.

This time I set up on the left hand lane, while Dave thought to come around my flank with his aces of aces. The Inquisitor was not best pleased.

Though I guess he needn't have worried so much.

The big I zips past, Soontir scoots in behind, and Boba takes a hard right.

Vader's tokenless! Pew pew pew!

Doh! He got away.

Dengar pops Glitterstims...for aught but one attack... Dave flew Soontir onto a rock.

And even then...

...Dengar didn't need them.


Leaving Boba hanging.

"Aww man, I was all lined up for a shot bro!"

More flying thither and yon ensued.

Including Soontir taking another damage getting off the 'roid.

A tokenless one health Soontir...

...often ends up a dead Soontir!

"Bro! You did it again! I was all ready to fire out my rear end!"

Which just left the Inquisitor.

But not for very much longer.

Once again an 100:26 (Dengar @ half points) victory to me.

Still not sure about my crew upgrades for the Brothers...

Anyhow, thanks for the game Dave, 'twas good fun!

Brothers In Scum - An X Wing Bat Rep

Good evening,

This afternoon Dave came round to help me try out a possible list for the Nats here in Christchurch. This coming weekend. Yikes!

I thought to run a Brothers in Scum list...

...having just watched this...

Seeing as Imperial Aces are quite popular down here in Christchurch, I thought to give Dave an old Imp Aces list that I had lying around from a while back...

(It didn't work very well for me during the store champs however!)

Anyway, we set up and away we went.

Second move, and I fly Dengar onto a rock!

All he could do is sit there while Soontir and the gang fly straight past him!


However, seeing as Dave hadn't flown these guys before (this being only his third game ever), he K turns them for a joust.

Interceptors aren't really built for jousting...

Next move, and Vader piles into Boba, point blank of a double tapping Dengar...

...and then Dave tries to K turn the Inquisitor while he was already stressed from the previous bound. So I give him a gentle one to bump Dengar...

...whilst and at the same time Boba fails to fly by Vader, and Vader fails to fly by Boba. Allowing Dengar..., well, do what Dengar do!

Which then just left Boba to do...

...what Boba do.

Bit of a steep learning curve there for Dave, it's not really a novice list that I gave him, what with all those double and potentially PTL'd actions and consequent stresses and what not.

Still, he enjoyed the game, so we set up for another...
