Player Profile is a series of articles in which R2-EQ looks at players in the X-Wing community.

That’s the lesson I learned from playing my first ever team Epic game recently. Oh, and don’t roll blanks on all your evade dice. That’s the footnote lesson.

I just love Y-Wings. Even though they always die in the movies, they look great doing it! What Star Wars fan can’t recite “stay on target” or “Lost Tiree, lost Hutch. They came from behind….” on cue? Continue reading Custom Repaint: Horton Salm
