  1. I’m actually considering get a specialized gaming table like that... need a new dining room table anyway, so why not get the dual role? We’re very early on in looking for a supplier reasonably close for shipping purposes...
  2. @Forresto Lowe’s also has hardboard, which is what I use both at the gaming store and at home to put on top of imperfect tables. It’s cheap, solid enough, and I had it cut into 38-40” squares for X-Wing mats to sit on.

    Happy Friday

    Sabine's A-wing
  4. Good trade with @Flurpy... I think the postal services put the envelope in quarantine for a month, or maybe the letter carrier was sick and took the bag home... Anyway, the envelope arrived with the cards in top shape. Worth the wait!
  5. To be fair, these are described as “aces” packs. I for one wouldn’t be opposed to a couple more of the existing generics on the reverse sides.
  6. I’ve been flying swarms of them since autoblasters hit the scene. The points drop just means my swarms increased in numbers
  7. Despite being all in on Scyks, the ion Scyk hasn’t stuck with me. Tried them out and found them pretty lacking. Autoblasters? Check! Mix of autoblasters and tractor beams? Double check! The autoblasters are just so good at ace hunting. The crits don’t alway come, but your opponent can’t exactly make that gamble either. I think the Scyk is priced where it needs to be, finally.

    Alt art n-1?

    @Darth Meanie Heads up!
  9. 5-8 seconds isn’t too bad... considering that Star Wars fighters were modelled after WWII fighters... a Spitfire can do a full circle in roughly 18 seconds (versions vary, as does impact of altitude) .... four turns of X-Wing to complete a 360... so 4-5 seconds would be a better rough estimate for a turn length. It's pretty abstract though.
  10. Indeed the hero we deserve, though many perhaps wanted something far greater.
  11. The former, is my guess. Eliminates the "ace dance" since the player better dang well know what they're doing before they find themselves lodged in four or five arcs. Boosting and rolling out is no longer an option unless you expected it. That's probably also true?
  12. TTS is Table Top Simulator, available on Steam. It's commercial software, but there are fan based mods for various games that are available to play.
  13. I’ve been streaming by bumbling TTS X-Wing on twitch. Kind of highlighting that even an idiot like me can get a game in with reasonable success. Plan to play some more tonight.
  14. I don’t know which reaction I need to put here, but rest assured a reaction is deserved.
  15. Disney employs a legal department that actively looks around the internet for infringements. In the past it’s gone after ridiculously petty things for which Disney as a company has needed to apologize for. Don’t bet on the virus shutting things down, plenty of companies are still running business as usual... (and demanding we show up to the office)
  16. Local here uses Kulbee a lot. He’s neat when he’s suddenly thrust into the ace position, but is otherwise just a more mobile X-Wing. Useful, but pricey.
  17. While it may be considered going rogue, this is my intended structure locally. Whenever the event happens, anyway. Date being considered for rescheduling....
  18. I’ve been painting minis through the weekend. I’ve got a huge backlog of Imperial Assault, Super Dungeon Explore and Infinity minis. Also been playing a bit of War Thunder and a couple board games with family. Not that I’m finding myself with huge amounts of suddenly free time, I’m still working from home.
  19. Sorry you feel that way @KCDodger Not that I particularly disagree. I skipped the anger phase and just went straight to apathy before the movie was over. I've never felt that in a Star Wars film before. I watched the Phantom Menace three times in the first 24 hours... each time I felt a whole lot less satisfied with the product, and the last absolutely focusing on the poor to the point I was cringing... but I've never shrugged at the end and walked out at the end feeling so much... nothing. There were some good scenes in there, but at a certain point I just stopped caring. Is that worse than disliking a movie? Bottom three.
  20. I took the same list to a local tournament and did middling with it. Difference being my tactics with large ships like the Falcon are quite flawed. I left Leia hanging when I should have run, run would I should have fought. My take away was similar, Leia is good, but you need to know what you're doing. That last bit generally eliminates a lot of lists from the generally accepted pool of "good" lists.
  21. Being pissed off clouds judgement in anything... Though, if you like seeing the guys drop the gloves, I suppose being mad is a feature. Rumors are it won't be a choice to attend much longer...
  22. You've been hanging out with the hardcore 2000 point epic players, haven’t you?
  23. It’s not bad, but for reasons above it needs good decision making to perform at higher levels. It’s autopilot when someone makes a mistake and decides to joust when they shouldn’t have.
