Anyone up for Gaslands this weekend? I sold have the new rulebook by then. :)

There's no shame in designing customs, so long as you keep them private and wash your hands afterwards.

I'll try to show up early. They changed the cost of some gear, so we need to create all new cards. Also, more factions! :D

After today's X-wing game, I reviewed my squad builds and made several changes. The biggest alteration was Anakin's squad gaining a third Torrent; the Aethersprite has built-in "Supernatural Reflexes" WITHOUT the damage penalty. (whatta point gain  :thumbsup:)

How does everyone feel about BattleFace this weekend?

What are you, some kind of dirty Davion? I thought the Ravens were better captains than that!

In any case, a search through StratOps says...no. The only collisions possible in BattleFace are when one ship executes a K-F jump, and materializes right on top of someone else. I figure we'll probably want to get several games under our belts before we try any hyperspace jumps during a game.

I've got the sheets ready. The Ravens will have 5 WarShips, 5 DropShips, and 4 Stars of fighters. The Falcons will have 4 WarShips, 6 DropShips, and 5 Stars of fighters. (I shorted both sides of roughly half their fighter complement to keep unit counts manageable.) Both sides come out to almost exactly 4,000 PV. I'll be bringing sheets, minis, everything. If anyone has a copy of StratOps, extra rulebooks might be handy.

  • we out-maneuver most fortifications
My body is ready >:D

As much as I want to play battleface I do want to run more gaslands and xwing. I came up with a pure Hyena/Vulture force for you, Weirdo. How many Jedi starfighters do you have sevengates? I wanna try the republic myself. Oh, and I came with an awesome Resistance StarFortress force that I want to try!
