So, we had a big bash on Sunday with as many X-Wing models as possible, including the Tantive IV and 2 Rebel Transports. Will served as the referee and designed the mission, though I shall blame the Imperial loss on Rob's dubious accounting rather than all or nothing mission design.
There are a lot of pictures, and not a lot of commentary. Mid-late game lots of stuff started colliding, and transports started running things over, and there was much exploding of Imperial ships. But until the very end of the game we led by 10-3, and only lost because we failed to inflict 1 final damage point on the Tantive's rear section.
Sure it survived the battle, but the Rebel scum should be worried about hitting the debris of all those TIE fighters. One wrong move and the whole ship's gone. Anyway, pictures.
Admirals Lee, Woods, and Darling.
Admirals Paul, Hazell, and Grey.
Despite heavy fire from the Rebels, the bombers deliver their payload.
The Bombers are nearly dead, but have flushed ordnance, nearly crippling the big ship.
If we'd had even slightly better luck, it would have been 15-7 in our favour, rather than 13-10 against. Still, it was a fun game, and the sheer number of ships on display was awesome. We'll probably do another one at some point, just maybe not quite so big.
