star wars: x-wing


Transports away…

I really like X-Wing for recreating the star fighter conflicts from the Star Wars universe. It’s a fun game and one that can be played with a few ships or a fair few. In a previous blog posts I talked about how I used the Keepa service to find price reductions on the X-Wing Starter Set on Amazon and the C-ROC crusier. Using Keepa I have managed to find the X-Wing starter boxed set on Amazon for just £8.99, the list price is £36.99. Using the same service I was able to find the C-ROC Cruiser for just £16.99 which has a list price of £55.98. One model I wanted for a long time for X-Wing was the Rebel Transport. I managed to get it for just £16.92 which is an amazing deal for a model which has a list price of £54.99 and includes an X-Wing fighter which is usually about £15 anyhow. I was well pleased. Of course with Keepa, you ca keep track of prices of the Rebel Transport on Amazon. This is useful if you want to see the history of prices for the miniature. You can then trigger an e-mail alert when the price r

The C-ROC Cruiser Expansion Pack contains one C-ROC Cruiser miniature, one M3-A Interceptor miniature with an alternate paint scheme, seven ship cards, thirty upgrade cards, and all the manoeuvre dials, damage decks, tokens, and game pieces that you need to fly your C-ROC Cruiser and its escort to battle. C-ROCs first appeared in the Star Wars Rebels episode Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion. The C-ROC Gozanti-class cruiser was a shipyard custom configuration for

Red Leader, Red Leader, Cheaper Leader

I really like X-Wing for recreating the star fighter conflicts from the Star Wars universe. It’s a fun game and one that can be played with a few ships or a fair few. I am sticking with the original rules, despite the fact that there is a new edition out now. The original boxed set comes with three models. I wanted to get some reinforcements for both the Empire and the Rebel Alliance, but wanted to get some of the standard models, having already got specialist models such as the Millennium Falcon, B-Wings, A-Wings and fair few of the TIE specialist fighters. So first on my list was the X-Wing. With a list price of £15, I have managed to get one on Amazon for £8.79, which I thought then was a bargain. I had noticed that the original boxed set on Amazon was sometimes sold at a discount, but I don’t have the time to continually check Amazon for those price fluctuations. Well just because you don’t have the time, doesn’t mean it can’t be done. I now use a service called Keepa which has an extension that can be i
