I've picked up the Scum and Villainy expansions and a YT-2400 so on Tuesday we decided to try a game with all three factions in. It was 100 points each and I was playing against people with not that much X-Wing experience so I tried to go for lists which shouldn't be too hard to fly.

The Imperial Raider, announced in December by Fantasy Flight games, is expected to arrive in stores in the UK in March - with a number of suppliers reporting this as the scheduled shipping date. The pack includes the newly-designed Imperial Raider Huge ship (similar size to the Rebel's Tantive IV) and a new paint-job TIE/Advanced which may make the ship worth taking. I've put some pre-order prices up in the Tabletop Game Deals section - take a look.

Here follows the battle report. (more…)
