Turning into a bit of a Star Wars day on D12GamesGuru... Many stores are reporting the arrival of limited restocks of the Millennium Falcon and Slave 1 expansions in the UK for the X-Wing miniatures game from Fantasy Flight Games.

If you're after one, then check your local store or look at the details below for where I've found stock. (more…)
A number of US Amazon customers who've pre-ordered Star Wars: Armada have received updated shipping dates for the game - with the date moving forward from the end of April to early-March. March 4, 2015, specifically. However the Amazon US site has it listed as unavailable. (more…)
"So this is it. It's all over. Years of elite training and it comes to this; burying my comrades on some Outer Rim backwater. Perhaps, while their guard's down, I can make a break for it..." - PL-21226, Yavin 4 Imperial Assault Campaign Report : Mission One - Aftermath I finally had the chance to start a Star Wars: Imperial Assault campaign at the Manchester Tabletop meet-up on Monday.

The XCOM boardgame is rumoured by game stockists to be landing at the end of January. It's available for pre-order - with the best deal being £43.99 from 365games.co.uk, while Amazon.co.uk has it for £49.95. My pre-order is in!

Somehow I missed the announcement during the run-up to Christmas that FFG are releasing the first "Huge" ship for the Imperials for the X-Wing miniatures game, but announcement there was. The ship is entirely new - created in consultation with Lucasfilm for the game. It sits in the same scale as the Rebel Corvette and looks like a cross between a Star Destroyer and the recently-released Decimator. I have to say it looks pretty good. (more…)
