Looking nasty. On another note, I placed second in the Assault on Imdaar Alpha at the weekend and picked up a Tie Phantom, it's an absolute beast.

Cheers thanks. Was pleasantly surprised as I was hung over with only four hours sleep from the football the night before.

The final was a scratch build 100pt list with the new ships and as the other player and I agreed which ships we wanted beforehand so it ended up being quite a casual game to finish.

Which was good because I was on my last legs. Good fun though.

Nice one Sam, was the non-finals list the same you were running before?

I like the look of the next wave as well, it all seems pretty inkeeping and seems to fill a hole in both side's fleets... though those holes are getting smaller and smaller as they go along.

:thumbsup:

I'm certainly looking to expand my collection when I get back from the US. I've only got a couple of games in so far but I'm pretty sure I'm sold on it.

Yeah, was running "Golden Daggers" again (2 x Dagger Sq Bs with Adv Sensors and 2 x Gold Sq Ys with ion turrets)

I'm keen to try out some other formats if people are thinking of getting into XWing. The scenarios I've played are good fun and quite balanced and add a story type element to the games (and an excuse to try out some less common ships etc)

I've also got the two huge ships which come with interesting campaigns. Will see if I can get down next week and what people might be interested in.

Well, here's the rest of the details on Wave 5:

I seem to have got this game kinda backwards - my rebels are turning into mini-swarms and all the Imperial stuff that appeals are all expensive, single ships. Something about that fat-arsed Decimator barge clumsily trying to circle the board appeals to me...

As does:

Not so sure about her  very situational, and then 4 points for just an evade, IMO much better upgrades out there for big ships....

There's also the small matter of having to have taken damage as well, of course. I dunno, I guess I'm always a sucker for free actions, though I was hoping she could fit on a bomber... which I then realised hadn't got a co-pilot spot anyway. Bugger.

A few more of the new Imperial upgrades:



All seem pretty fun to me. I can see myself giving Mara a try for the mid-game crush.
