  1. https://www.facebook.com/events/2338972773004184/?active_tab=about If you plan to attend, then you should pre-reg ASAP as there will be a player cap at 64 and it will probably sell out.
  2. I've got an extra one...want me to send it to you?
  3. Someone make me an Oprah meme: "You get a heroic...you get a heroic...EVERYONE GETS A HEROIC!"
  4. Gordon and Mikhail are joined this week by special guest Ryan Staniszewski of the OCX podcast to discuss their recent experience at the Hyperspace Trial that was held in Springfield, Ohio. In fact, one of them won the tournament! You’ll never guess who!! Listen to find out!!! Okay, fine, the title of the episode has a hint!!!! http://acrossthesaga.com/sot-episode-48-hail-mikhail/
  5. 😧 Oh no...does it say "On Target" on the side of the laser? (faint red lettering)
  6. Let us know if you think it was worth getting or not!
  7. Probably a very accurate assessment...go 5-1 with it or go home. Might be better suited for the Hyperspace side event at a System Open where MOV isn't a factor instead of a dedicated Trial.
  8. If the On Target laser isn't to your satisfaction, be sure to publicly shame me...you'd think I was getting commission on their sales over how much I've shouted to the rooftops about these things the past few years.
  9. Well, my goal was to spell that out in the article: it's the thinnest laser I've ever owned. Enough to justify 3X the cost? That has more to do with your wallet and what you're comfortable spending. The article was supposed to come across as a bit tongue-in-cheek in a fanatical and hyperbolic sense, but I do believe it's a quality laser and well built. I eventually came to own three of them because I thought I had lost mine at a tournament and so I bought two more for $20 each when funagain.com was having a fire-sale on their remaining inventory and thought I'd have a backup if I lost one again. And then I found my original lost laser (of course). Two of them are as thin as can be, but one is slightly thicker and indistinguishable from my Army Painter. That's the thing about Army Painter lasers, because they're cheap, they have a range of thickness widths as well. For example, my friend has an Army Painter laser that's practically indistinguishable from my On Targets...it's a unicorn! Maybe yours is too and you're all set! Regardless, the Army Painters are no where near as bad as how awful the Harbor Freight lasers can be. My On Target laser has been used at times by judges at System Opens and Regionals when it made sense to do so because of how thin it was. Is it just as precise as a straight edge? Of course not, but it's close.
  10. Or you can pay a bit more like I did -- oh look, an opportunity to link to my article! (http://acrossthesaga.com/frickin-laser-beams/ -- but they are pretty hard to find in the wild now. A quick search shows someone had Amazon selling one (no idea how many are available): https://www.amazon.com/Gamesmith-ON-TARGET-Line-Laser/dp/B01CH89WV0
  11. Yeah, you're not alone in that opinion! Like I said, some room to play around in the list. Not much, but just enough for everyone to put their spin on it.
  12. Mostly about dice, less about men. “Getting diced” sure has come up as a topic a lot lately, so the Stay on Target crew thought they’d chime in as well by compiling amazing amounts of statistical research alongside copious amounts of insight. And then Asa from Back to Dials publishes an article on the day we record that summarizes it all better than we ever could. What a jerk. So we have him on as a guest during his lunch break. 05:30 – WAR STORIES | 35:30 – HYPERSPACE TRIAL PREDICTIONS | 50:45 – INTERVIEW WITH ASA AND FLIGHT PREP | 1:30:30 – HYPERSPACE TRIALS ADVICE | 1:43:00 – RESOURCES | 1:53:40 – FFG Beef | 2:00:00 – QUICKBUILDS https://open.spotify.com/show/5FQlhQNf92lKRngDzrjHcV or http://acrossthesaga.com/sot-episode-47-dice-men/ Links to other stuff mentioned this show: http://www.backtodials.com/dont-get-diced/ https://listfortress.com/tournaments/352 http://xwvassal.info/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGmTvzPSPYA (Oli's How to Vassal) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYBj4CjpEOyeIbxPHrv74xA (Echo Base) https://github.com/Sandrem/FlyCasual/releases http://xba.azurewebsites.net (XWing Battle Report Archive) https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/…/deluxe-movement-tools…/ https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/…/2/8/star-wars-outer-r…/ https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/…/standing-out-from-the…/ https://suchanxwinghipster.wordpress.com/…/17/elusive-hero…/ (InVENNIEcible) http://infinitearenas.com/qbsb/# https://raithos.github.io

  14. That link didn't work for me (missing a "j" at the end I think), but this did: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1d5qdUCoJIsEO62jrk4xP6jcXun890zEj
