Second week of X-Wing nights at my FLGS. Only managed to get one game due to everyone having other commitments the following day but what a game it was...for my opponent!
I was running Rebels for the first time in 4 months and just thought I'd have some fun so I took:
The Death Star Crew:http://xwing-builder.co.uk/view/44570/death-star-crew
3 X-Wings all tooled up, with Biggs running as bodyguard. It took 4 turns for us to actually get into range (I miss the speed of my TIE fighters), but when we did attack dice were on fire.
TURN 4 (kinda turn 1):
Wedge scores 3 crits and a hit (no re-rolls) at range one against a Y-Wing as his opening salvo. Luke & Biggs scored a few more scraping down shields and putting holes in the Y-Wings hull...and that's where the fun ended. Biggs died to a fantastic amount of fire-power from the 2 X-Wings, and just alive Y-Wing and managed to dodge...nothing....I didn't roll a single evade. Wedge also suffered some loss of shields from a Rookie pilot.
My dice were still rolling well in attack and I managed to vape the Y-Wing, but with only two ships left I was spent. Luke was next to fall to some accurate fire from the HWKs blaster turret, and Red Squadron Pilots lasers, with the Rookie finishing him off.
With only one ship left Wedge managed to score some hull points, but not enough to kill, and was shot down by the same Rookie that took out Luke.

This experience has taught me one thing, I still prefer TIE fighters, they may be squishy, but they can dodge!! :)
I also picked up a TIE Advanced from the store last night, so now looking to see where I can fit it into a squad.
