The Force was strong with this one...

A trip to the city of Maryborough last night produced the following couple of games of X-Wing, very very, cool...




In the first game my Rebel X-Wing was easily a match for the two TIE Fighters




Suffered some minor damage getting a hang of the rules



But, it a short time...



Scratch x1 hostile



Scratch x2 Picked the last one off from extreme range


A few pictures of the excellent miniatures


I think the X-Wing is more of a fighter, while the Y-Wing is more of a fighter/bomber


The redoubtable Millennium Falcon 



The ride of Boba Fett


TIE Interceptor 


Darth Vader's ride



The quick and nimble A-Wing


Game 2, this time I played the bad guys



The Y-Wing was slow but packed a lot of firepower, here my TIE Interceptor explodes under a hail of turret-mounted cannon fire



With the standard TIE following just a few turns later


The victor


The hanger


X-Wing is a great game. It reminded me of this old classic that we used to play a lot when I was living at the Thiepval Barracks.
