    paladin72 got a reaction from mikeespo in X-Wings: Do they need fixing?   
    I would like to see some X-wing title cards like Red Leader, Red 5, or Rogue Leader. Would be a neat thematic way to give them a bump.

    Thanks. Got me some Focus, Shield and Evade tokens. The new ones look better than the FFG ones to me.

    paladin72 reacted to AlphaTwo in SUPER FALCON: NOW THIS IS CGI'ING! (SO GOOD)   
    When the X-Wings showed up, it felt a little like being a kid again. Especially when the sound of the X-Wing's engines got louder towards the end of that part. But when the Falcon zoomed past and started twisting and turning and dodgeing TIE Fighters, it might as well been 1983 again. I liked the new star wars movies and all but that part right there more than anything I've seen in the new movies felt like star wars and made me feel like I did as a kid watching star wars. It was like seeing an old friend you hadn't seen in many years.

    I'm actually looking forward more to Wave 6 (my Most Wanted, if you will) than 5. Who knows what will follow? (Well, who knows what what follows will contain, that is.)

    paladin72 reacted to AngryAngel in X Wing players give a salute to Veterans   
    I placed a thread for Memorial day, and so it is only fair to give one for Veterans Day.
     
    So, let me say, as one person to many others. Thank you men and women, of the armed forces for your service past, present and future. You defend your countries policies, the people and even in very real ways, freedom and the right to enjoy such freedoms.
     
    It can often be a thankless job, and heavy is the burden sometimes forced upon your shoulders. Some people do think of you, thank you and appreciate your many sacrifices in times of armed conflict and across the globe.
     
    May your service be always honorable, fill you with pride, and may your country always remember you and those like you.
     
    I know our community has its fair share of vets in residence, so give a shout out, make yourselves known, and of course feel free for everyone to voice your own thanks for your veterans. We all should know at least one, family or friends who fits the bill.
     
    In closing, Happy Veterans Day everyone. I hope your Tuesday goes well and you take at  least a moment to think of the day and those who serve your country in combat.
     
    As side note, my personal thanks going to the various armed forces of USA.

    I just finished reading Requiem For A Rogue. It feels like they pulled that storyline straight off a Black Sheep script. From the Bothan Girls to street brawls to the events searching for the lost cruiser. Just added X-wings and Ties for Corsairs and Zekes.

    Definitely worth (bibs) getting. Carnor prevents enemies from spending AND performing evade AND focus tokens/actions. Interesting pilots, nice upgrades and titles.
    A new mission as well even though I expect people don't play them much.
