X Wing AAR

22 July 2017

Casual fun game so nothing interesting to note other than a pleasant surprise that my list (that relies on earlier Wave expansions) did well against the latest Wave expansion ship – the Scurgg.

I had Tycho (A wing), Luke (X Wing with R2D2), Horton (Y wing) and a Gold squadron pilot (Y Wing).

My opponent had Captain Nim with two Y wing escorts.

Nim has an interesting feature: he “poops” bombs. Nothing new you’d say as bombers always “poop”. Well, it was a novel experience being “pooped” on by Captain Nim who seemed to have diarrhoea every times I would end up tailing him.

It was like looking in a mirror and seeing a reflection of yourself. My Gold squadron pilot did really well outlasting the more fancied “aces”, Horton Salm and Tycho Celchu.

The mines, the bombs, the asteroids, the twin laser turrets, the synchronised turrets were all — apart from the asteroids — novel experiences for me But somehow I survived. I am looking forward to the next one as I want to trial my TIE Defender list.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
