Because they seem like a complete waste of time to me.  I've never once forgotten to check for critical damage.  Any one else feel this way?

 

Next - what ship do I need next?  Is there anything you see missing that makes you go "WTF is this...why hasn't he got an X yet?"

 

2 Starter Sets

1 TIE

1 HWK

1 Shuttle

1 A-Wing

1 Interceptor

1 Advanced

 

Lastly, what is up with UK stock levels?  Are there any shortages in the US at the moment?

X-Wing Expansion... It will get you Wedge Antilles plus give you a third X-wing model.

 

I have not had any issues with stock here in the US. I live on the east coast and if I cannot find a specific piece at a local store, I have always been able to find it on Amazon.com.

I'd love one.  See "UK stock levels" for why I don't yet.   <_<

 

But that's interesting, I expected someone to say B-Wing or Y-Wing before a 3rd x-wing.

Nope,

 

I've had so many players forget the effects when the tokens weren't there.

I've never usered em (Crit tokens) - And after this past weekend I think I'm going to change that. Messed up giving myself the detriment a couple of times (to be fair, my opponent made mistakes that were in his favor as well). We just messed up a lot. LOL.

 

Edit: Stoopid typos.

wait till you play a tie swarm for the first time.  those crit tokens are essential for keeping track of who has taken what damage.

But...that's what numbers are for?

 

The 3rd number goes on the card, and the damage assigned to that ship goes next to it's card.

yes, thanks for that basic run down of how to use numbers, lol :D

 

my point is, when you are running seven ties, and three have different crits that affect movement, and they are all in a bundle in the middle, it can be very useful to know which three have the crits at a glance. 

 

EDIT: also, they are not just for you, they are for your opponent.  it is very useful to be able to remember that ship A has a damaged engine or that ship B is blinded as it can inform your next turn.

Regarding the critical markers: most of the time you won't need them, but the one time you do forget will completely muck up a whole round, so better safe than sorry.

You're missing the Millennium Falcon/YT 1300 and Slave 1/Firespray 31.  Two of the ships the UK hasn't had a problem with stocking...in fact the only two.

I can definitely source a Slave 1 - but no dice on the Falcon.  I can't find it anywhere.

I find the crit tokens so useful I designed some specific ones for the commonly forgotten ones:

That's probably one of the cooler sets of tokens I've seen so far. Do they come painted like that?

They are not available yet (soon), but I doubt they will come pre-painted. They are super easy to paint tho. I just do the design work.

I don't always use the critical hit tokens, and I have been known to forget.  Maybe it's time to pick up the habit of using them consistently.

UK stock is pretty poor at the moment, aside from a few ships. It seems easy to get a Z95, or A-Wing but Falcons and Y-Wings are in short supply at tbe moment, at least with all the retailers I try. There was a thread a couple of dayx back that mentioned a UK site that still had Falcons in stock but I cant seen to find it right now.
Rebels and only Rebels- 5 x X-Wing, 2 x B-Wing, 1 x E-Wing, 3 x Z95 Headhunters, 1 x HWK 290, 1 x YT-1300, 1 x GR-75 Transport, 1 x Tantive IV.

That might have been me, there was one on ebay but it was going for £40.

Australia has similar issues with stock.  Stores will have several copies of a few ships and nothing of anything else.  And then a few weeks later it will change as to what ships they have.  Except the HWK, there are always HWK's.
