Somewhere in the great beyond Peter Cushing - Governor Tarkin himself - has to be watching us play X-Wing Miniatures while cracking a cosmic smile of appreciation :)

I laughed.  Then when he lit up at the end I thought "Oh God, if they saw him now!". LOL

 

 

You would be surprised at some of the stars names and associated miniatures.  Peter was not and is not alone.

God, I would drop so many tarkin quotes if I were actually tarkin playing his miniatures...

On that sexist note. Anybody know any competitive female players? I play x wing and SWLCG with my wife, but I've never seen or played against any females in tournaments.

There is a games, comics and collectibles store nearby that I enjoy visiting a lot. A few years ago a guy came in and bought some Eldar minis for Warhammer 40K. When he gave the associate his credit card she looked at it, then looked at him...

It was Robin Williams.
