6MMRPC Week Twenty-Two: Repairs and X-Wing

This week I finally finished repairing all of the damage from the move, at least the models that still had all of the parts.  There are a few more that will need more extensive repairs from my spares box.

Paint touch-ups on these.
Had a few broken crew and hatches on these.
I also got a game of X-Wing in with my friend Kevin, his first and my first in several years.  I really can't imagine playing this as competitively as some do, but I understand the depth that it allows.  I'm quite happy to keep it a 'beer and pretzel' type game.

Kevin's TIEs make a head-on attack on one of my Y-Wings!
Jek Porkins scores the first kill vs. a TIE Interceptor!
The game was super fun and I barely took the win.  Out of two X-Wings and two Y-Wings vs. Kevin's three TIE Fighters and two TIE Interceptors, it came down to a single X-Wing vs. a single TIE Interceptor, and I got a lucky four hits to finish the TIE.

6MMRPC Week Twenty-One: Imperial Assault?

I played my first game of Fantasy Flight's Imperial Assault last night and had a very good time.  Only problem: Those minis need paint!  I'm considering making an investment into the game now that I'm back in an area with friends who game, and my usual D&D group is looking for an alternative for when one or more of us can't make it on game night.  I picked up The Grand Inquisitor figure from the Rebels animated series and it's a pretty nice little item.  Only problem is the usual drooping lightsaber blades which I may try to replace.  Joker number two burned, but maybe something completely different will kickstart my painting mojo!

6MMRPC Week Nineteen: Moving In!

Hey, I've finally moved in to the new place enough that I got to unpack my minis.  They've patiently sat in boxes for the last two months while everything else for the new house was taken care of first.  Most of them made in in one piece, but there were a few casualties.  Until I get these repaired and some paint touched up, I won't be cracking into the mountain of lead.

6MMRPC Week Ten: Leaving Las Cruces

I'm all packed up and I'll be on the road Friday for California.  Doubt I'll have anything to post next week, but you never know!
