Another Yakuza inspired ship, this time a Y-wing which will forever be known as the YakWing. The old wishbone is about as fast as a Yak so the name certainly fits. Continue reading Custom Repaint: Scum & Villainy Y-wing – The YakWing
I came to X-Wing through my interest in miniature gaming. I have two 40k armies, and the details and quality of FFG’s X-Wing Miniatures were a huge selling point for me. I’m primarily a Rebel player, and I decided to repaint my B-Wings, easily my favourite ships in the universe as Blue Squadron B-Wings. Continue reading Repainted B-Wings
Most of the games I play, I don’t have much of a plan. I just go with the flow of the game, adjusting as the game progresses. Yet sometimes, having a plan and applying it will provide you with some real satisfaction. I started playing four B-Wings over at Nationals losing in the Top 8 to Grish by not adhering to my initial plan. Had I stayed true to it, the result could have been greatly different.

clone soldiers, the Imperial Stormtroopers!
I’ve been painting quite a bit during this cold Canadian winter (people in the rest of Canada can insert a joke about Toronto never actually suffering a legit Canadian winter here). This article is the first about my Imperial Assault minis and features the dreaded Storm Troopers complete with a description of how I painted them.
As one of the earliest Store Championships of the season I thought it might be useful to get some insight into the state of the meta over in Calgary.
I was able to get one of the other staff members to be the main TO, allowing me to actually play in the event and just be the main Rules Judge if necessary. The fact that I hadn’t played a single game of X-Wing in the previous two months (December in retail can be a little hectic as you may imagine) meant that I was a little rusty and not exactly up on the details of the current meta but I threw a list together anyway.

As the great Alexander Pushkin once wrote, “from love to hate is only one step.”
Oh, how we fans do love our Star Wars. For your enjoyment, I’m sharing two videos I came across recently which bash on the prequels in a very entertaining way.
