Iggies go pop

Again I’m trying different combinations of the IG-2000 paired ships using the IG-2000 title to share the pilot abilities between the pair of ships. The previous week I had flown three different variants, mainly using IG-88A plus another just to make sure this ability was as pointless as I thought it would be. It proved…

Imperial Raider

Images have been released of the Imperial Raider, the next Huge Ship to join the Epic squadrons. This looks amazing, exactly what an Imperial Huge Ship should feel like, a smaller version of a Star Destroyer and a souped up version of the VT-49 Decimator. I’m really looking forward to playing this with a swarm…

Star Wars X-Wing

After a bit of deliberation (people at the club are also playing the Game of Thrones card game) I purchased the starter box for Star Wars X-Wing. When I opened the cellophane I could tell it was a good quality product from the care that had been taken in the packaging; everything fitted snugly, but…
