St Neots Casual X-wing event

So we finally got a some group of people together for a x-wing event.
All prizes were given out randomly except everyone got 2 Push the Limit Alt cards :)
We also used the new FAQ

Here are the lists :)

My list (Scum)
I thought I would bring 3 ships I am yet to field on the table, main idea here is to give me a idea how they fly. The list is a bit random but thats the fun behind it :)

IG88B, PTL, Mangler, Inertial Dampeners
Cartel Spacer, Heavy Scyk, Mangler
Guri, Adv sensors, Auto-thrusters, Virago

Colin (Imperial)
Rexlar, Pred, HLC, stealth
Mauler, stealth
Academy, stealth x2

Ant (Rebels)
Outer rim smuggler, weapon engineer
Luke Skywalker
Rookie x2

Darren (Imperials)
Darth Vader, pred, shield, homing missiles
Relxar, cluster missile, shield, expert handling

Brian (Imperial)
Whisper, VI, ACD, Intelligence agent
Soontir, PTL, Hull
Turr Phennir, VI, Hull

So 3 imperials, 1 rebel and 1 scum, could be fun :)
And it was :)

Round 1-
Brian Bye

Round 1, Scum Hunting rebels

Round 1, Imperil vs Imperial
Luke 100 vs Ant 36
The scum and rebels fought a close fight, with the Scum coming out on top just, with the Cartel Spacer, taking the credit for all 4 kills, but limped away badly damaged, a very close game, in which the rebels struggled to get a lock on the Scum ships.

Colin 59 vs Darren 15
The Imperial forces faced off, with Vader wanting the other fleet destroyed for some unknown reason, but after a long fight, were only minor damage was being inflicted, Vader pulled his forces out to fight another day.

Round 2-
Ant Bye

Brain 12 vs Darren 0
Vader again goes hunting down other Imperial forces and again a long drawn out fight sees almost no ships going down, except a poor academy pilot. Vader once again cuts his loses and falls back from the fight.

Luke 100 vs Colin 20
The Scum get mixed in quick with the Imperials, doing some heavy damage to Rexlar and taking out Mauler completely. The Imperials fought back strongly destroying the Cartel Spacer, but once IG-88 had hunted his prey and taken out Rexlar the Academy's had  alot of work to do. Why they were able to inflict massive damage, it wasnt enough to stop the relentless assassin droid finishing its mission.

Round 2, Scum surrounding the Imperial forces 

Round 2, Vader trying to hunt down a Phantom!

Round 3
Darren Bye

Colin 100 vs Ant 35
The Imperials hunted down a illegal smuggling shipment of the rebels, while the rebels put up a fight they were no match for Rexlar and his escort of Ties.

Brian 36 vs Luke 33
IG-88 arrived with a new mission, to hunt Whisper, but its not how it happened, the battle was long and ships were damaged including Guri and Soontir both being blown into space dust, but the Phantom and IG-88, while hunting each other were unable to have much effect, when finally the Imperial reinforcements arrived, and even IG-88 made a tactical move to fall back.

Round 3, Rexlar shutting down a illegal smuggling shipment

Round 3, IG-88 has the Phantom in its sights.

Good day other all :)
Also for some reason round 1 pictures will not go where they are meant to be! O well :)

Here are the final standings :)

1st- Brian

Hopefully we get to run move events soon :)
