Last night we got in another game of X-Wing 2.0, this time a full 200 points vs 200 points. We were still a bit slow on time (much slower than the 75 minutes allowed in a tournament game), but we are still learning 2.0 and some of the new symbols on the cards.Since I just opened 'Lando's Millennium Falcon' expansion pack, I thought it would be fun giving it a fly. Han Solo and Boba Fett flying siide by side with an escape pod. Since I am still fresh on 2.0 and all the upgrade cards, I based their upgrades on the quick build lists that Fantasy Flight Games offers on their website (and in the new 2.0 packaging).Customized YT-1300 Light Freighter - Han Solo - 71 •Han Solo - The Corellian Kid (54) Marksmanship (1) Chewbacca (4) Rigged Cargo Chute (4) Tactical Scrambler (2) Lando’s Millennium Falcon (6)Firespray-class Patrol Craft - Boba Fett - 103&nb
Last night my son and I finally got in a couple of games of X-Wing 2.0. Just to begin with and refresh my memory on how the game plays (since it has been over 3 years since I played X-Wing) we elected to just start of playing with the Starter Sets. My son was flying the Rebels with a T-65 X-Wing and I was playing the Galactic Empire with 2 Tie Fighters.Game 1 Deployment.It was actually really fun playing again, our first game (as with all new games) we had our heads buried a lot in the rules manual, it was more of me forgetting on how things worked. I spaced out my 2 Tie Fighters in deployment to try and draw the X-Wing towards one of them while I flanked with the other. In this game, the X-wing managed to destroy 1 Tie Fighter and the second Tie Fighter finished off the X-Wing. A win for the Galactic Empire.Lone Tie Fighter destroys X-Wing,In game 2 I deployed both of my Tie Fighters next to each other (no pic, just to try something different). This game moved along much faster

Two games in a week! What! I do t think this has ever happened before! It’s Aeldari vs Astra Militarum today at 1,500 Points at Boards and Swords again. Mission The mission was Tactical Objectives, Deadlock. Draw six cards turn one then up to five on turn two, up to four on turn three, etc. Stratagems cost double Command Points from turn three onwards. This leads to a lot of pressure and action towards the start of the game. If you can’t score early on, you won’t score. Deployment I finished deploying last of course. Greg, my Aeldari enemy, chose […] The post Aeldari vs Astra Militarum – 1,500 Points appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
