Amazing X-Wing moments

Its no secret that X-Wing can be a chaotic game with plenty of memorable moments.  For the past few months, I’ve been taking pictures of some of the more memorable moments at Black Knight Games provided by myself, my opponents, and by others playing while I was merely an onlooker.

Most of the shots were from traditional 100 point games:

These final two shots were taken at a free-for-all furball game, where debris fields are placed where ships are destroyed.

As Echo attempts to shake off an ungodly amount of stress, Rexler has an unobstructed shot in a debris crowded part of the field at Vader.

  1. Those are simply epic pics that show what X-Wing is all about! Brought a smile to my face as I scrolled through them. Great idea for a post.

    It all reminded me of a pic I’d like to share. I was playing in an Assault on Imdar tourney last year against a very nice guy but, he was totally new to the game and couldn’t fly well. He managed to park 3 TIEs onto the big asteroid at the same time! One of the TIEs, Mauler Mithel, even died because of it.

    Mauler suffered a hit on the first landing and took a double damage crit as his template moved over the asteroid next round. Boom! Just like chasing Han in Empire Strikes Back. I had to to take a picture during our game as I couldn’t believe it.

    Mauler Mithel goes boom!
