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...

I'd love to read an article on making effective use of TIE bombers. 
How ridiculous is that? 1,000,000 pageviews!  Thanks again for your love and support, y'all. You're the best!  I wanted to try and come up with something cool to do when we broke 1,000,000, but I really couldn't think o...

+Ben Brophy Simple can be just as good as the more complex versions. At the very least it is better than just playing straight on the table.

Informative review of the Millennium Falcon model and rules. I'm worried about adding to much complexity to X-Wing - one of the good things about is how easy it is for new players to pick up. They will need a new rule book soon to incorporate all of the rule modifications the expansion packs make possible.

There really aren't many added rules to be honest. The large ships work pretty much like any other, only that they have some different firing arcs and take two ion hits to disable. 

There are of course new cards with new stuff like homing missiles, heavy laser cannon and crew, but that is not a core rules addition.

Don't fear, X-Wing is still a very quick and easy to pick up game. :)

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'm a Night Goblin player myself. I'm looking forward to reading the battle reports. I love the mangler squigs. I am one of those cheapskate that made two mangler squig bases out of one box, some day I will redeem myself. 
Just got back from a 2 week break to Japan so have not really been working extensively on my models. I did however get some time yesterday evening to break out my Night Goblins for an upcoming campaign called Blood in the Bad...

I love playing X-Wing with Nathan. He's got Vader creeping up behind my guys so I'm probably doomed.

Yes, Vader baited us successfully with that Black Squad TIE which we destroyed, then came in from behind and destroyed X-WIng, the other was severely damaged and fled.

They got creamed. There were 8 tanks in 1500pt list, the Knights popped three of them, but kept getting hit with high strength blasts. We had a Storm Raven, but it was shot out of the sky by two Vendettas. I should have more of the units Deep Strike.

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.
