Howdy guys and gals,
So these write ups have been waiting for me to post because the internet sucks in A-stan. After arriving home last week I can say that one of my best experiences was playing this game with a lot of the boys to pass the time. The game was sent in a care package by Hothie back in March and the weeks that followed were filled with crazy 100 point battles with metas that I have not seen to often on this forum or AFM, as well as 6 man free for alls which had suprising outcomes.
I will start with the battles that are covered in the pictures.
After Unboxing the Core set and one of every expansion, We set to work constructing the dials and placing the cards in protective wrappers. after we had completed that I played a game against Ryan, using the basic set up rules for play.
I Played the Rebel X-wing and Ryan used Two TIE/ln. I made this original write up in March in the General sections of the forums titled "Got my wave 2 Ships Today, WOOT!". Here, FINALLY, are the pictures.
In addition, we played a 180ish point game (the write up for this game was also in the same post). The Pictures for this game are now also up.
For a quick re-cap so you do not have to dig through the multiple pages of wave 3 ship guesses ( that mystery has been revealed effectively squashing the discussions of what wave 3 will be FOREVER) and pre HSF Rebel Squad Ideas.
I was on the Rebel Team with Tom and Tyler, and Ryan, Levi and John were the Imperials.
I controlled Wedge with R2D2 and Luke with R2F2
Tom controlled Han Solo with Chewbacca
and Tyler controlled Arvel Crynyd and Horton Salm w/ Ion Cannon
Ryan Flew Soontir Fel and Howlrunner
Levi flew Darth Vader and Mauler Mithel
and John flew Boba Fett and Dark Curse
Needles to say there was a large furball with plenty of collisions and in the end the Rebellion was able to claim victory.
Some of the pictures are not in order.
Anyways the next month was filled with Star wars battles just about every night until two weeks before we went home because we were so busy. I will try to write up a few more from our fun in Afghanistan later on after the box I shipped with my notes comes in the mail.
