Who Plays?

Postby markb » Mon May 19, 2014 9:43 am

Being a total Star Wars nut I am so interested in this game but, as always, I don't want to splash the cash if no one at the Raiders plays it. So is there a following for it? I would have to go Dark Side :twisted:

Also, after looking around, I saw a Star Trek game that uses them mechanics (Whizzkids apparently licensed the mechanic from FFG) called Star Trek Attack Wing. The models aren't supposed to be as good but it's got all the favourites in there like the Enterprise D, the Defiant, Romulan Warbirds, Jem Hadar and Borg ships. It'd be interesting to recreate some of the monster battles that were seen in series 6 and 7 of DS9. Was wondering if anyone would be interested in that as well.

Hi Mark,

Quite a lot of the Raiders own and play X-wing including myself. The club also owns 3 of the X-wing mats.

I am more than willing to give you a demo game I have both Rebel and Imperial forces although I have never used the Rebels.

Cheers for the offer, mate, I'll take you up on that when I'm next in the club. I get home in about a month.

If you guys ever do weekend games let me know. It's probably a little far for me to drive through on week nights, but could could probably make a day of it on a Saturday :)
