Decimator Size Comparison

Dropped by the store the other to have a few games of X Wing with Jeremy and Vick. And someone was lucky (or mad) enough to get one of the Gencon early release of the Decimator. I was keen to see how large the model was so took out some of my other models for comparison. Here they are:

Decimator and Shuttle side by side

Decimator next to the Falcon. I was quite surprised that it wasn't so much bigger than the Falcon. 

But the footprint of this model is quite large compared to the other big ships we have.

Star Wars X-Wing Tournament: Tough Choice

Vick organised a 100 point tournament with an interesting twist. You bring two 100 point lists and your opponent gets to choose which one he wants to play against. You choose one of his lists as well. No duplicated unique pilots in either lists. You can bring unnamed ships but only 4 of each kind total in both lists. That's it! 

So I brought two lists:

3 rounds Swiss style. Highest points win using the new VP difference in the FAQ. Here are some pics from my games.  

First game played the previous Malaysian Regionals Champion. He chose Wookie Bees. It was quite a slow game as we deployed on both ends of the board. I knew he was trying to lure me in and use the Ion Cannons to pull me offboard so I did everything I could to hold back. He did the same and while other players were killing off ships, we were still moving 1 forward, 1 gentle. LOL! I almost lost Chewie but that one Evade counter saved me! Woot Millennium Falcon! We ended playing to time and I managed to kill off his Dagger Squadron B Wing and HWK netting me a 24 point win.

X Wing Practice for Tourney and Grex League

I've been quite quite busy practicing X Wing for the Tough Choice Tournament prior to the event and didn't manage to put it up on the blog. Here are some pictures of a few builds I tried prior to the event. I dubbed it Wookie's Bees:

I played a few games with it and actually managed to win against the few lists thrown at me. 

Against a nimble Empire list with Echo, Bounty Hunter and Shuttle

Star Wars X-Wing Wave 5 - Details of the Contents

As Rebel Aces come out this month, we can expect Wave 5 to hit us pretty soon with the two large ships. Last spotted at Gencon, this picture will give you a rough idea of their sizes. I personally am going to enjoy trying out the Decimator. 360 degree firing, Millennium Falcon, chew on this.

Star Wars X Wing Wave 6

Gencon 2014 had a surprise for all of us. Scum and Villiany is the 3rd faction to join our game. I will let the pictures speak. 

Star Wars Armada

So unless you've been living under a rock somewhere, Star Wars Armada is coming early 2015! =D Very likely just after New Year or at least in Q1 of 2015. So looking forward to it!

These pictures were taken at Gencon. I will let the pictures do the talking:
