I think the Tempest swarm list is more effective against two ships build, where the big alpha strike will pay off more. It has a harder time against something like the B-swarm. It was interesting to watch this, thanks!

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...

This part was funny: "I've never really wished for additional Factions in X-Wing
It's been a busy weekend, huh? FFG Announces Star Wars Armada I don't mean for this to sound crappy, because obviously I really, really, really like X-Wing Miniatures, but Star Wars Armada is kinda the game a lot of us ha...

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.

I'm enjoying this (just part way through so far) because I am really into the improved TIE advanced. For what it's worth, Hobbie can't take Opportunist, he doesn't have an EPT slot.

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!

If it hadn't been for R5-D4's bad motivator unit R2 and Luke would never have met.

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!
