I got my first lot of X-wing Miniatures in and had 3 games last night to try it out. In a word, brilliant! The design of the game is inspired and I am looking to get into it deep for sure. If anyone in Shed-ville wants to see/try the game, drop me a line.

This has been your "Check out this game! It is awesome!" Shed post for the week.

I've been having lots of fun with this game over at Group North. We'll have to get a few more players on each side and have a club championship armata_PDT_01.gif

I imagine there'll be a lot more players after January when there are finally more starter packs for people to buy (and the Falcon gets released)

Im just wondering; after the A Wing, Y Wing, X wing, and B wing (and Tie variants) what other type of ships are out there other than Prequels & Mercenaries?

I figure we'll know in 2015 when the new movies hit.

While the game is great I don't see to much of an expansion range for FFG, which may mean that instead do limited runs to keep interest and sales up (kinda like their current production schedule) instead of constantly cranking out new ships. Otherwise it'll be expanded universe stuff which most people won't know anything about (including me) and there won't be any visuals to recognise.

They may just up-scale to Star Destroyer sized battles with a new game.

(I'm not counting a journey back to prequel land, as I don't think I'd buy any of them)

Off the top of my head B-wing, V-wing, Z-95 Headhunter, R-22 Spearhead, TIE Avenger, TIE Defender, Lambda shuttle, YT-2400, Imperial Gunboat, Imperial Missile Boat, Corellian Corvette, System Patrol Craft (SPC).

It is clear to me that FFG are not averse to using the Expanded Universe. For example all the named TIE pilots are Expanded Universe information as well as the 2 Skipray pilots that aren't Boba Fett.

At the same time, I do hope FFG heavily control what units/rules are available to each side to ensure that both sides have a distinct flavour and can't fill in all their gaps too easily.

When my FLGS ordered 15 starter sets and got only 1 delivered with a notice that they are sold out at distributor level, that has stalled potential interest there but I have managed to get some stuff from WAU sponsors so yeah, it can be found but it isnt as easy as walking into a store in Adelaide.

I know its prequels; but I would like to see a Jedi Starfighter.

And as a Imperial player I would love to shoot down Anakin Skywalker in Naboo fighter with Darth Vader in his Tie Advanced... smile.gif

Well, that is pretty much what it is. wink.gif FFG make both games. One of these has A-wings however. The one that does is the winner in my book.

I got burned by the last prepaint starwars spaceships minis game (in that I bought a starter, and the game was terrible). So I'm a little hesitant..

Can we use those models though? Or is the scale wrong?

Cos I got stacks of those at Lee Hopley's house. Maybe. If he hasn't binned them.
