There’s nothing like a bunch of Star Wars fans with a great sense of humour. Here are people force choking their friends to great effect. Continue reading Vader Force Choke Par Excellence
With Manaroo becoming more and more prominent in the meta, mostly with her part in the dangerous Dengaroo combo, and her similarities to the Palp shuttle, its seemed very possible that Manaroo with two Scum Aces would become a thing. As a fan both of Scum, and of Palp Aces, I’ve decided to do some theoretical work on this possibility.
Even though Star Wars is more popular around the world, and has generated much more money, here in North America Star Trek is a pretty big deal.
This repaint I used as a Dagger Squadron ship, or a thematic Red Squadron ship. It’s been modded to be fully rotational as with my other B-Wing mods. A few freehand rebel logos on the wings make it really stand out. Continue reading Custom Repaint: B-Wing Red Squadron with Rebel Logo
My first experience with Dengaroo was at the 401 Regionals in Toronto and already excellently chronicled here by SP3NC3R. I’m the guy who lost three TIEs in a round. Not my best moment, but I saw what was coming and just swung the elegant sledgehammer that is the TIE Swarm head on at it and just bounced. The rest of the game I just sat there in shock.
That was the first time I saw Dengaroo and the last time I’ve lost to it. Continue reading I beat Dengaroo and so can YOU!
A great interview with our very own Josh Derksen (aka Armoredgear7), creator of the viral X-Wing Co-Op Campaign, Heroes of the Aturi Cluster.
This is a post for the musically inclined. Some of you might know of “Pogo,” the dj who gained fame cutting up famous movie bits and setting them to music.
Welcome, stranger, to my menagerie of thoughts after the GenCon North American championship. This document is somewhat organized into four sections: list section, game insight, the GenCon batrep, and closing thoughts. With an Admiral whose strength is maneuvering, it will be difficult to describe the small choices in positioning with text. There will be a few pictures along the way to colour your journey.
Part 1: List Selection
Kenny Baker, the British actor who played R2-D2 died on Saturday. He was 81. Here is a fun picture collection of everyone’s favorite droid buddy. Continue reading Artooo!
Hey all, Drew “Wilee” Edgar here!
I tend to push the idea that every Imperial ship has a role to play, and that when a ship doesn’t fill a specific role clearly then there’s usually some sign of imbalance. The TIE Advanced, before it had the X1 title, was one such example. Everything it brought to the table something else could do better.
While the First Order ships are minor deviants to this theory, they still do fulfill a given combat role and are spiritual equivalents. TIE/fo is just a beefier TIE fighter with upgradability and still is the spammy bully or disposable ace, and the upcoming Upsilon-class shuttle will be a Lambda on steroids. But what is the TIE/sf?
