Critical Hit Tokens + New Ship + UK stock levels.

35 posts in this topic

Because they seem like a complete waste of time to me.  I've never once forgotten to check for critical damage.  Any one else feel this way?

 

Next - what ship do I need next?  Is there anything you see missing that makes you go "WTF is this...why hasn't he got an X yet?"

 

2 Starter Sets

1 TIE

1 HWK

1 Shuttle

1 A-Wing

1 Interceptor

1 Advanced

 

Lastly, what is up with UK stock levels?  Are there any shortages in the US at the moment?

X-Wing Expansion... It will get you Wedge Antilles plus give you a third X-wing model.

 

I have not had any issues with stock here in the US. I live on the east coast and if I cannot find a specific piece at a local store, I have always been able to find it on Amazon.com.

I'd love one.  See "UK stock levels" for why I don't yet.   <_<

 

But that's interesting, I expected someone to say B-Wing or Y-Wing before a 3rd x-wing.

I've never usered em (Crit tokens) - And after this past weekend I think I'm going to change that. Messed up giving myself the detriment a couple of times (to be fair, my opponent made mistakes that were in his favor as well). We just messed up a lot. LOL.

 

Edit: Stoopid typos.

wait till you play a tie swarm for the first time.  those crit tokens are essential for keeping track of who has taken what damage.

But...that's what numbers are for?

 

The 3rd number goes on the card, and the damage assigned to that ship goes next to it's card.

yes, thanks for that basic run down of how to use numbers, lol :D

 

my point is, when you are running seven ties, and three have different crits that affect movement, and they are all in a bundle in the middle, it can be very useful to know which three have the crits at a glance. 

 

EDIT: also, they are not just for you, they are for your opponent.  it is very useful to be able to remember that ship A has a damaged engine or that ship B is blinded as it can inform your next turn.

You're missing the Millennium Falcon/YT 1300 and Slave 1/Firespray 31.  Two of the ships the UK hasn't had a problem with stocking...in fact the only two.

I can definitely source a Slave 1 - but no dice on the Falcon.  I can't find it anywhere.

I don't always use the critical hit tokens, and I have been known to forget.  Maybe it's time to pick up the habit of using them consistently.

They are not available yet (soon), but I doubt they will come pre-painted. They are super easy to paint tho. I just do the design work.

 

Eh, I'll probably pass then.

UK stock is pretty poor at the moment, aside from a few ships. It seems easy to get a Z95, or A-Wing but Falcons and Y-Wings are in short supply at tbe moment, at least with all the retailers I try. There was a thread a couple of dayx back that mentioned a UK site that still had Falcons in stock but I cant seen to find it right now.

That might have been me, there was one on ebay but it was going for £40.

Australia has similar issues with stock.  Stores will have several copies of a few ships and nothing of anything else.  And then a few weeks later it will change as to what ships they have.  Except the HWK, there are always HWK's.

You can only get falcon and slave now if your willing to pay over the odds same with y-wing.

Nah I know exactly where to get a Slave 1, I'm considering getting it on Saturday if there is still stock left. There are two very good gaming shops in Liverpool very close to each other that still have some stuff left. It's just not taken off yet - I'm trying to get organised play going at one of them.

I was going to be mean to scousers then it struck me, at least they are not French.

Hint of advice never buy expension in other language, even if you understand or able to figure it out. Whit my experience they are more expensive and mixe toghether they are a real chalange to figure out the specific wording.  Did this error whit Cosmic Enconter and Illuminatie.... :blink:  worst error in gaming life. From now on evrything in the same language, original if possible.

 

Sorry for the off topic reply but I have got to get this out.
