  1. Hey folks. If anyone in the UK wants to pick up a FFG version of the Tide of iron series, I have started a ebay page for the entire collection. The core set and days of the fox is used but only ever played twice (some counters popped out etc.) while Fury of the bear and Normandy are new and never been opened (tiles still in sleeves, cards in their wrapping). The set is only being sold in the UK so if you fancy checking it out here is the link http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tide-of-Iron-Collection-core-set-expansions-/261950288507? Any questions etc. Let me know.

  3. Rebel Aces guide is now complete. Both B-Wing and A-Wing are in the same guide for ease of use. http://critical-rocket.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/star-wars-x-wing-character-and-ship.html - Check out the guide here or use my handy dandy reference page with easy to browse icons found at this link. http://critical-rocket.blogspot.co.uk/p/x-wing.html - Guide reference page here.
  4. TIE Defender and TIE Phantom guides finished and ready for use.
  5. The CR90 guide has been completed and uploaded. The link is here http://critical-rocket.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/star-wars-x-wing-character-and-ship.html The guide contains all cards that come with along with the damage deck split into it's fore and aft damage sections. Thanks to everyone for the feedback and use of the guide
  6. Updated the GR-75 Medium Transport guide with all damage cards (colour coded for your pleasure =p) along with every upgrade, crew and equipment card. Also the X-Wing guide page has been updated with the new pilots from the GR-75 set along with the new flechette torpedoes and astromech droids. Thanks to everyone for using these guides and any corrections or advice, please leave a comment here or on my blog.
  7. Yeah no problem Lappenlocker. Any other issues or mistakes etc. please let me know and I will change them.
  8. IPV patrol craft maybe? At a push and once again a scale alteration here and there, maybe a Acclamator class? although that was more of a troop transport. It's tough since a lot of the Empires ships are much larger than that of the Alliance and some people would only complain about scale if they just shrunk a standard ISD down to tabletop size. The Carrack does look pretty cool though and I wouldn't complain if they announced it.
  9. @Lappenlocker Checked out the Disqus issues you were having with iPad and it seems you're are not alone. There isn't anything I can do about it sadly as it seems it's an issue with either IOS, Disqus or both. If you can view the pages on a desktop running any of the major browsers there shouldn't be a problem.
  10. Hmm, I will have to ask my web monkey to look into the disqus issue. You're the first person to mention any issues with it, but yeah if it causes issues something will have to be done there. To answer your question though, Disqus is a comment system that cuts down on the amount of spam blogger gets from spam bots. Using that you don't see the raft of spam posts which can lag posts loading. Everyday is a battle to delete these and there are no shortage of sites that try and trick blog users into clicking links full of malware. I will change those - into : if it causes confusion. Check back later today to see the changes and thanks for the feedback
  11. As some of you may have noticed I have removed the existing links from my original posts that link to each ship specifically. This list looked ugly and wasn't the easiest to navigate in this post, but I have updated the front page of my blog with a new X-Wing button at the top of the page between "wrestling" and "Miscellaneous". Clicking this button will take you to the new and improved resource page created by my friend grumpehkitteh. Each guide is hyperlinked from there with a handy image of the ship you need to view and the page can be bookmarked from there. If this change isn't to your liking, let me know and I will add them again but I think this update makes the original post less visually ugly and giving you a one stop page to view all of the guides from with images is a much better way of finding what you need. Expect the new Imperial Aces ships to be added under their own guides when they are released sometime this month (if all goes well).
  12. Added Scenario 3, Decoy. Needs testing so it might change.
  13. On the Y-Wing one thanks for spotting that, it was done a while ago and I was really tired when I was typing them, so yeah it will be corrected tomorrow. As far as the HWK-290 goes, I will not be removing the unaligned tag as many players use ships like Y-Wings, YT-1300's, Firespray's and now HWK-290's as independent vessels as seen in plenty of Star Wars games, comics, fiction and other media. I don't think people playing tournament rules will be confused by this and casual players will probably not get a HWK-290 before the starter set anyway and by that time they will know which units are rebel or Imperial. Also I call them guides, but really I view them more as reference sheets and background fluff. I probably should re-name them Character and ship reference but I am too lazy But yeah the Y-Wing will be corrected tomorrow and I will give them another pass for other errors. *Edit* mention of concussion and cluster missiles removed from Y-Wing. Ion cannon remains as the card details and stats mention it's the turret that fires the Ion cannon. Also in Star Wars there is no distinction between Ion cannons, if it fires ion charges it's simply referred to as 'ion cannon'. It's a pity we never see them being used by the fighters in the films. But yeah the post says 'ion cannon turret' in the weapons section and has a picture of the card. But yeah the missile reference has been removed.
