IT IS TIME! The Star Wars X-Wing European Championships are tomorrow! I wanted to get this out a little earlier but we've just been so busy getting things organised. If you didn't see on the Facebook page, we created some custom acrylic tokens which I plan to hand out to the people I play, packed them up and everything!

                              

Since the last post I attended a small tournament (and I mean it there was just four of us!) but we managed to play each other once for a total of three games and I won! Albeit it by 14 points but still I was happy. Here's the list I took:

Silent Knight  (98) 

Store tournament loot!

Rear Admiral Chiraneau (54)

Veteran Instincts (1)

Rebel Captive (3)

Engine Upgrade (4)

"Whisper" (44)

Veteran Instincts (1)

Fire-Control System (2)

Gunner (5)

Advanced Cloaking Device (4)

It hit like a truck but as expected the decimator melted and Whisper was well Whisper. The only change I would make is to maybe swap rebel captive and gunner around. Gunner didn't proc a single time and most players are put off attacking the RAC (well I suppose that was the idea!) but the longer Whisper survives the better. I also think sticking rebel captive on her would make her end game even harder. The other thing is the PS skills I always prefer having ships with the same pilot skill so there's more choice during the movement phase. For these reasons here's whats on the menu for Euros:

Silent Knight mk.2 (100)

Rear Admiral Chiraneau (58)
Adaptability (0)
Hotshot Co-pilot (4)
Darth Vader (3)
Gunner (5)

"Whisper" (42)
Veteran Instincts (1)
Fire-Control System (2)
Rebel Captive (3)
Advanced Cloaking Device (4)

 I also decided to spruce up the ships a little:

 I'll be posting a full repaint post after the tournament!

My Yoda mascot will hopefully be sending me good vibes (is there such thing as force vibes?):

So all I can say is good luck to everyone at the tournament and hopefully i'll meet someone who's discovered this series. I'll be doing a full tear down once the tournament has finished and Iv'e come out of hibernation so look back here next week sometime!
