X:wing Rugby Spring Event

So a nice sunny drive saw me play in a event in Rugby, I took my list I am currently practicing
IGD, Pred, HLC, Adv sensors, Dampeners, Autothrusters
4 x Binyre Pirates

Up for prizes was a Spring Kit, table top Han Solo cards, and some vouchers to spend in store!
So lots of goodies to play for!

Game 1
Corran Horn
2 A-wings

I forgot to write down upgrades but this game was unreal, he murdered my IG and took out 3 headhunters while the other ran away for a while, after the early exchanges shooting my IG, he never rolled a blank... and my evade dice.... well never rolled anything but blanks!
So a dead IG very quickly, I was able to take a A-wing out, but that was about it,
Not a good start
Lose 28-88

Game 2
4 Ties
Darth Vader

Well early exchange saw two of his Ties blown up without me taking a single damage, and the game continued from there, he kept taking all his shots vs the IG and only did 2 damage to him all game
Win 100-0

Hunting Ties

Game 3
2 Blue squadrons

This was the only Turret at the event, and a list that I believed I could deal with quite well, and I did, both B-wings had died to a lose of two of my headhunters, now because MOV was going to be important, I flew the other 2 headhunters off, and let the IG chase Lando for the rest of the game! And thats what he did!
Win 100-24
Early exchanges 

So I finished 3rd, not bad, and got some nice goodies, and a voucher, here is what I left Rugby with, I bought the Gladiator myself as it looks cool, but I am yet to play a game of Amanda yet lol

Till next time :)

X:wing a few casual games

So with Nationals around the corner, me and a friend met up to get some practice in, all games were timed to a hour (when we remembered)
This is a very quick run down!
My goal today was to use the Aggressor, may be a couple of mistakes in lists, but think I got them all.
After every game I made changes to try and make the lists better, these will discussed in a future article, but I will write up all the lists so changes can be seen.

Game 1
My list
IGA, Lone Wolf, Adv sensors, autothrusters, title, HLC, Dampeners
IGB, PTL, Adv sensors, autothrusters, title, Mango


3 Binyre
2 Cartel Spacers
2 Syndicate Thug

Basically with lots of blocking it was a long game, which went to time, he struggle to get shots, and I struggled to shot anything
Lose 44-51

Here come the swarm!!

Game 2
My list
IGB, Predator, adv sensors, autothrusters, title, Mango
IGD, Predator Adv sensors, autothrusters, title, HLC, Dampeners


4 Binyre Pirates with Feedback!

To sum this game up, I flew a fully healthed IG off the table with a silly move, so this game was quick
Lose 28-100

Game 3
No Changes by me


Shuttle, Fleet officer
Soontir, ptl, autothrusters
Rexlar HLC

Well I took down the shuttle and Rexlar but Soontir never took a shot all game, and was able to finish my aggressors
Lose 68-100

Game 4
My list
IGD Pred, Adv sensors, HLC, Autothrusters, Dampeners
4 xBinyre Pirates

Duel IG

A good game, but my HLC let me murder through his Aggressors, and the head-hunters did some nice blocking to
Win 100-24

Game 5
My List stays the same

2 Mango Scyks
3 Thugs with Autoblaster

A quite simple game in the end, using my headhunters as blockers and to cause problems and the HLC just picking off ships quickly
Win 100-0

Finishing up
Game 6
My list doesnt change


Soonit, Jax and a Royal Guard
All with PTL, Stealth, Autothrusters, title

This list won the MK regional and was going to be hard for my list, but with some good blocking and some nice HLC shots the Interceptors soon died.
Win 100-12

So as I said quick run down of today's games :)

Dont forget to follow my facebook page :)

X-wing:MK Regional Report

 So 60 Players all made it to MK, ready for the regional.

And here we are!

Room is set

Another picture of the Room
My list

Han, Vi, C3P0, R2D2, Title
2 x Blue pilots
Been using it for a while, it is getting to the stage where more counters to large ships are coming out, so this is its test for regional, if it fails I have been working on a back up plan for a little while now

So a quick break down of my games followed by a break down of the top 8 :)

Game 1
Wedge, Marksmanship, R2D2
Horton, Ion Turret
Farlander, PTL, FCS

So a interesting build to go up again, and a quite a straight forward win in the end, with Han just taking range 3 shots and letting the B-wings get into the mix to cause problems
Win 100-22

Han Looking Menacing 

Game 2
Dash, Title, Mango, Lone Wolf, Recon, APL
2x Blue, FCS

Interesting game where Han couldnt hit a Barn door, his blues made mince of mine, without taking much damage back, for some reason I couldnt hit them! and then they hunted Han down
Lose 24-100

Dash and Han have sights on each other
Game 3
Shuttle, Vader
Vessery, Ruthlessness, Cluster
Soontir, PTL, Title, Targeting Comp, Autothrusters

So Rexlar shot off his cluster to great effect, but for 2 turns he didnt roll a single evade so he was gone as well as a Blue, and then Soontir went over a rock and straight into Han.. so no actions and then rolls a crit for Structural damage, and the last Blue takes him out of the sky, after that it was just about hitting the shuttle as many times as possible
Win 100-22

Shuttle is the last man standing!
Game 4

NOOOO the kind of list I didnt want to play!
But we got dug in, usual stuff, Han around the edges and the B-wings causing problems, my B-wings were able to block so well he went 2-3 turns without a shot.. and that was massive, time my B-wings went down he had a Headhunter and 2 blues, but 1 blue had 3 Hull left, and 1 had 1, the 1 will 1 hull ran off, and allowed me to put some more damage onto the other one, but in the end Han picked off both B-wings and then the Head-hunter to finish... but  not without cost, he only had 2 Hull left!
Win 100-44
This was the game of the day for me, good laugh and so close

Game 5
Garvin, R2D6, Vi
Dutch, Title, Autoblaster, R5-K6
Cracken, Swarm, Hull

This game didnt go well, he picked off a Blue a turn and then just hunted Han intill there was nothing left
Lose 28-100

Chasing the Falcon

So 3-2 and no top 16 for me
A few 4-1's didnt even make the top cut!

Final result was I finished 24th

Anyway Top 8, I only have some of the list information.

I also dont know the Swiss order they finished, so this is just in a random order

Player 1.
Dash, Pred, Recon, Title, HLC
Chewbacca, Pred, title

Player 2
Duel IG list

Player 3
Garvin, R2D6, Vi
Dutch, Title, Autoblaster, R5-K6
Cracken, Swarm, Hull

Player 4
Soontir, Title, Ptl, Stealth, Autothrusters
Carnor, Title, Ptl, Stealth, Autothrusters
Royal Guard, Title, Ptl, Stealth, Autothrusters

Player 5
Dash, Mango and title, cant remember the rest
2x Blues with FCS

Player 6
IGB, PTL, adv sensors, HLC, autothrusters
IGC. PTL, adv sensors, MAngler, Autothrusters, Inertial Dampeners

Player 7
Dash, Title, Mango, Lone Wolf, Recon, APL
2x Blue, FCS

Player 8
IGB, PTL, Adv sensors, HLC, autothrusters, Inertial dampeners
4 x Binayre pilots

And so it went like this!

1v2  (win for 1)
3v4 (win for 4)
5v6 (win for 6)
7v8 (win for 8)

Top 4

1vs4 (Win for 4)
6v8 (Win for 6)


4 bears 6!

So 3 Interceptors win the MK regional! :)
