|And we're off... Ice planet space mat looks great!!|
|My Tie Advanced and 2 Interceptors all destroyed in the second round...|
|Ties closing in - nice formation flying... but ultimately futile...|
|It's the end for the B-Wing...|
|Aneurin tries hard not to look too smug....|
|Bye bye Tie.|
Well - this was my 3rd game of X-Wing. I was The Empire again, fielding Darth Vader in his Tie Advanced, 2 x Tie Interceptors and 3 Tie Fighters. Aneurin had a Y-Wing, a B-Wing and Luke and Wedge in their X-Wings... it was 150 points each.
I was completely destroyed with not much effort on Aneurin's part.... I put this down to:
1 - I don't know how to design a good squad yet.
2 - I don't know how to play the game very well yet.
3 - Aneurin is good at 1 and 2.
The Ties seem pretty useless in small numbers... It seems they are only really good if you have a load of them and you can fly them well in formation to swarm the rebels.
I've just ordered the new Tie Phantom and Tie Defender to bolster my Imperial Squads - hopefully this should give me some more interesting options!
But ultimately I need more practice!!!
It was good fun though - and thanks to Aneurin for coming over to my house to thrash me!
We finished off the evening with a game of Marvel Dice masters - which I haven't quite got the hang of either. Nice quick fun.... (but I need more practice at that too!!)
