X Wing – Darth Vader Re-Paint

Posted on August 16th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Don’t know about you, but I always thought Vader’s TIE Advanced always looked a bit boring. Of course, as a Dark Lord of the Sith, he probably had more pressing issues to deal with than thinking about pimping his ride…Still, had Vader found himself o…

So here’s my first X-Wing unboxing. I know there’s plenty of them out there already, and made by people who actually know stuff about the game (I have only played it a couple of times so far). But well I do my own anyway so you get an unboxing from a t…

X-Wing Expansion: Lambda Class Shuttle – A Review

Posted on August 12th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

A slightly different tack for me for this X-Wing ship review. I’m going Imperial. But just this once. I’m Imperial-curious I guess you could say. And for my dabble in the Dark Side I’ll be looking at the iconic and epically cool Lambda Class Shuttle. First: the model. Which is, even by the gaming standard […]

Black Crusade: Tome of Decay out now

Posted on August 5th, 2014 under , . Posted by

The intoxicating lure of Chaos leads untold millions down the path of corruption, and the noblest of intentions offers little protection against its dark influence. A soldier’s bloodlust, a politician’s ambition, a lover’s desire, and even a …

X-Wing Expansion: Tantive IV

Posted on August 3rd, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I was very young when I was first exposed to Star Wars. Return of the Jedi was released when I was just a year old and so I was watching the Original trilogy on VHS (kids you’ll have to Google that) from around 2/3 years old. I didn’t have that seminal, life changing, moment that […]

X-Wing Miniatures Game – A Three Party System

Posted on July 23rd, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

It doesn’t take much to realise that I’m really enjoying the X-Wing Miniatures Game at the moment. I’ve been a Star Wars fan ever since I saw Return of the Jedi at the age of 2 or 3 and that love grown over the years with the introduction of the Star Wars novels, specifically the […]

X-Wing Expansion: E-Wing – A Review

Posted on July 22nd, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve always loved the E-Wing. Ever since I read the Dark Empire comic book. At the time my brother and I were elbow deep in the Expanded Universe and the X-Wing game series on the PC. I waited and waited for a patch or expansion for the E-Wing but it never came to be. So […]

Miniature Monday: X-Wing repainted!

Posted on July 14th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

One of the best things with X-Wing: The Miniatures Game is that the ships comes pre painted, for a lot of people anyway. For me this is still the case but as a painter I have to paint some, despite the original paintwork being okey at least.I will not …

X-Wing Expansion: B-Wing – A Review

Posted on June 29th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve always had mixed feelings about the B-Wing. When it dove into view in Return of the Jedi I was fascinated by the design. Of all the Rebel fighters it looked the least like a conventional/modern/atmospheric craft. But this had a lot to do with it being designed by Admiral Ackbar, a Mon Calamari who […]

Wave 4 for the X-Wing Miniatures game arrived. There are several interesting new ships in the mix, but none more so than the sneaky, cloaking Imperial stealth fighter, the TIE Phantom. I definitely had to get myself one of those. The TIE Phantom is a g…

Starting Malifaux and X-Wing!

Posted on June 21st, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

You could have thought that when you have like a thousand or so of unpainted miniatures that you just can’t get rid of other than to actually paint them, you should not get any more. You have plenty to do already! Well I’m not that kind of guy and even…

X-Wing Expansion: HWK-290 – A Review

Posted on June 21st, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So back in May I clocked another year and was rewarded with many things. One of which was the HWK-290 expansion pack fro X-Wing. For those not up on their expanded universe, the HWK-290 made its debut in the FPS Star Wars: Dark Forces in 1995. It was widely praised for its vast level design, […]

Unboxing the TIE Fighter Expansion Pack for X-Wing

Posted on June 19th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve resisted the TIE Fighter expansion for X-Wing for a while. In many ways, it is the least economical of the expansion, as you get not just one, but two TIE Fighters in the X-Wing miniatures base game (and many people buy multiple copies of th…
