A New hope, 100 point x-wing event

So here is a quick run down of the x-wing event today and MK, once again it was a good day, with awesome people :)

So first of all, it is a themed event, but you still can run any ship

So with wave 4 just out, I was a bit worried about phantoms, so here is my list

Wes Jenson
Flechette torps

Han Solo


Idea is, wes is PS 10 so shoots before phantoms are shoot and cloak, so he stresses them with the torp and chewbacca finished them! Anyway..

Game 1 vs Scott
Scott was running 3 Phantoms (bugger)
Both the named ones and a sigma!

Anyway the sigma died early, wes and chewbacca saw to that, then it was about making Wes stress a phantom and chewbacca and Tarn killing it, but I would like to point out, Tarn should of been dead twice, but Scott's range 1 phantom dice were very unlucky!
Match Win

Game 2 vs Wedge, Biggs and a B-wing (named one)

All 3 were beefed up, this was a very close game, he made a big mistake when he barrel rolled his B-wing into arc of my X-wing, letting me murder it, but it came down to a 5 Hull chewbacca killing off Wedge last of all, good close game though
Match win

Game 3 vs Kyle
And more phantom fun,
He had Whisper beefed up with cloaking device, advanced sensors, VI, recon spec
and he also had 4 ties!
This game was close, but Phantom died early, in the same manner as last ones... stress.. die!
Close game and it come to a draw in the end, and we both agreed it was the correct result for such a close game!

Game 4
This was against a mirror list, same pilots, a couple of different upgrades!
But this game went... my Wes dies, in the same turn, his Tarn dies.... His Wes died, in the same turn my Tarn dies!
And at this point it was my 9 life Falcon vs his 3 life Falcon, and with Han solo co piloting mine, I can get 2-3 hits easy a time, so bang! Down goes his Falcon
Match Win

Game 5
So winner takes all! Winner of this wins the event, and its against Kyle again (Game 3)
This game was a lot quicker and 1 sided.. I stressed his Phantom but failed to kill it, his phantom then needing to do a green, crashed into my Falcon and then Wes opened fire and killed it quickly!  I then took a tie down, but lost the Falcon, but my two x-wing pilots took 2 more ties down quite easily (On the turn after he killed the Falcon) and he conceded the game!

So I win a event :)
Prizes was the MK x-wing championship helmet, which so far I have 1, Ed and Ryan also have 1 each... best bit is, we are all on the same championship team!
I also got a Rebel Transport and a poster, but I passed the poster to second place (Which end up being Ed anyway)

Anyway here is the trophy and a picture of the Rebel Transport.

Happy Gaming :)
