These are great. I like to see the way you keep your play area so organized, especially the way you rearrange the cards when a ship is destroyed. I'm going to copy that!

I love seeing these photos of my old neighborhood. Thanks!
MAY 25TH- MAY 31ST   I was thinking about how I had very few photos of the rain and it occurred to me that it really hasn't rained that much since October-- we had a 100+ inches of snow, of course, but very little actual rai...

I still think that playground was at its best in 1979. It was a Dangerous play zone for free range children before that idea was hip!
MAY 4TH- MAY 10TH   So, of course, we jump from Spring right into Summer.  The trees aren't only blooming but some of them are in full summer mode. The students are starting to finish up and the street will take on a more lo...

That's brilliant. I am pretty clumsy with the models usually, and I hate when Skew the position while placing the movement template.  I am excited to try this out. 
Like many of you who dived nose deep into X-Wing have come to realise, you'll find that our ships slide about on the gaming mat quite easily. This makes for a disruptive game as the game is meant to be quite precise.  My f...

Exactly! You just place the template and the little studs keep the ship in place. Love it.

Wow, was not expecting that to come in as a win in the end. 
I played this battle last week and meant to put it up sooner but work took the better part of my time. Here it is. I played a 1800 points of Night Goblins led by Snarsnik against the High Elves of Alarielle played by Dennis S...

I want to fly the four tempests as well. In the beginning you knew you wanted to avoid jousting but he caught you in a joust anyway. I have been in that situation so many times, it is really hard to control that first engagement. One little thing beside the simultaneous fire is that those cluster missiles have three attack dice, not two. I'm looking forward to seeing a rematch!

+Ben Brophy Thanks for the comments and for letting us know about the 3 dice! That's a huge influence towards trying a re-match with the same list

I've enjoyed the Defender reports. In my next game I want to try putting Rexler into a list with the ST-321 shuttle that can target lock anything on the map. 
Here we are again, taking the time to write another X-Wing Battle Report featuring the Wave 4 Ships. As I said in the last battle report I wanted to try the two Defender list against a two Falcon list and Gill was happy enou...

Thanks, I am glad you enjoyed them!

You can Squeeze in ;
Vessery with HLC
Omicron Shuttle with ST-123
Bounty Hunter

All for 99 points which I think could work and be interesting, you just need to ensure the shuttle is shooting as much as possible too as it's lack of engine upgrade will handicap its 2nd pass.

Hope you have fun and let me know how it gets on!

Elves are scary! They stink funny and strike first!
I kickstart my turn on the Titan Games Blood in the Badlands campaign this evening. I will play with my Night Goblin army and my first opponent will be Darren who is controlling the High Elves. Thought I show you guys the map...

Million Year Picnic is the best comic shop in the Boston area for comics. Comicazi in Davis is awesome, and has more games and figures than Million Year Picnic. But if you are really into comics both mass market and indies, Million year Picnic is place. It has been there for decades and feels like it in a really good authentic way. It is one of my favorite shops to visit and browse.
