The Big Guy: Unboxing the Lambda Shuttle Expansion for X-Wing

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

It can’t accelerate worth a wheep  and it turns slower than a comet, but if you get in its sights, it can blow you to itty-bitty pieces. It would be embarrassing to have to inform your family you got shot apart by a shuttle, so stay alert. It&#8…

X-Wing Miniatures Game: Battle Report 4

Posted on April 13th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The asteroids drifted slowly in space. Spinning and twisting in an endless orbit with a planet no longer possessing the gravity well strong enough to keep them in place as its rings. By any measure of interstellar navigation it was a hazard, but every other measurement it was suicide. Which was why smugglers used it to hide […]

Salute 2014

Posted on April 11th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So tomorrow the big day will have finally arrived. And it cannot have come soon enough. These last few years I’ve pre-ordered my ticket as soon as possible. Not because I’m worried about missing out but because when I wake up the day after Salute I’m already looking forward to the next one. For me Salute […]

X-Wing Imperial Aces Squadron List Building Thoughts

Posted on April 7th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Ever since I received my Imperial Aces box, I’ve experimented with TIE Interceptors. Mostly, it’s been painfully humiliating. Squadrons with just 3 blinged-out Interceptors aren’t (so far) doing it for me. Probably due to my lack of p…

X-Wing: Collecting a Rebel Fleet

Posted on April 2nd, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The addition of a second Y-Wing means my Rebel fleet for Fantasy Flight’s X-Wing Miniatures Game is starting to take shape. With a few games (and wins) under my belt I’ve started to get to grips with the tactics of fighting with a Rebel fleet. To be perfectly, brutally, honest you can pick up the […]

Unboxing – Imperial Aces Expansion for X-Wing

Posted on March 24th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The X-Wing Imperial Aces Expansion arrived (if you could get hold of one… ). Expensive and fragile, TIE Interceptors are rarely the go-to choice for X-wing players, but they are a classic Star Wars design. I sure hope the Imperial Aces expansion…

Dungeons & Dragons Attack Wing – First Pictures

Wizkids is on a roll. Their Star Trek Attack Wing game, licensed from FFGs X-Wing Miniatures game (which in turn is arguably an unlicensed “homage” of Wings of Glory) was a massive success. Good enough for Wizkids to take the licensed game …

X-Wing Expansion: Slave 1 A Review

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

So now we really get to the meat of the subject, capital ships for the X-Wing Miniatures Game, and for me it all starts with Slave 1, the entire reason I choose to do an Imperial fleet. Boba Fett was always my favourite. Yes, I know it’s an obvious choice but so what? He was […]

A lot of people – myself included – are eagerly awaiting the Fantasy Flight’s Imperial Aces for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. Presumably, it was only a question of time until the Rebel counterparts would reveal themselves. Unlike the Im…

How is the wargaming industry doing? Which games are hot, which games are not? Who is expanding, who is not? Is the wargaming market expanding or contracting? Lots of interesting questions. Unfortunately, I cannot answer them here! What I can do howeve…

X-Wing Expansion: Y-Wing – A Review

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

The much maligned Y-Wing has been the butt of jokes by fans and Star Wars novelists for years. It had everything to do with the fact that they were generally portrayed as a bit shit in the movies: fairly incapable of doing anything other than explode. And the design, with the extended – and seemingly […]

The X-Wing Miniatures Game Addiction…

Ouch! A wonderful little comic on the X-Wing Miniatures game from Direman. It’s a few months old, though I only saw it today on Facebook. This one hits very close to the truth Z.  Author informationZweischneidI am Zweischneid. Wargame Addict…

New Warhammer 40K Living Card Game from Fantasy Flight?

Posted on March 8th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The picture you see above is making the round on the internet (or 4Chan) today. Could be a fake, though more likely FFG is brewing up another 40K Card Game. I never got to try their Fantasy Flight’s Space Hulk Card Game. No idea if the 40K Theme …

Fantasy Flight offers a new glimpse of their upcoming large ships. Unlike the last preview of the Tantive IV, this one looks at the slightly smaller Rebel Transport. Though I am still not fully convinced of those large ships in X-Wing, this one might b…

X-Wing Expansion: Millennium Falcon – A Review

Posted on February 26th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I think it’s fair to say that we, at The Shell Case, are rather smitten with X-Wing Miniatures Game by Fantasy Flight Games. As the team has grown I’ve been dangling the game in front of anyone who would let me and fortunately for me Mat bit and bit hard. This has meant several things […]

Fantasy Flight Previews the Tantive IV for X-Wing

Posted on February 24th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Fantasy Flight’s fantastic X-Wing Miniatures Game is a bit at a cross-road. They’ve mostly exhausted the known ships from the classic Star Wars movies that make for good dog-fighting: the TIE Fighter and its movie-variants, the eponymous X-…

The final ship to talk about in Fantasy Flight Games’ recently announced fourth Wave of X-Wing Miniatures: The Z-95 Headhunter. The Z-95 appears to be a deceptively plain entry to Wave 4. It brings no fancy new cloaking rules like the TIE Phantom…
