    X-Wing Miniatures Game

    X-Wing Miniatures Game With its pivotal role at the Battle of Yavin, the Incom Corporation T-65 X-wing fighter claimed its place in history. Boasting high-powered laser cannons, proton torpedo launchers, and a reinforced titanium-alloy hull, this solid and dependable craft has earned its reputation as a staple in the Rebel Alliance's arsenal against the Galactic Empire. Control the most advanced starfighters and outstanding pilots in the galaxy! In X-Wing Miniatures Game, you take the role of squad leader and command a group of merciless Imperial or daring Rebel pilots in furious ship-to-ship space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wingrecreates exciting Star Wars space battles from small engagements of only a couple of craft to large conflicts where multiple squadrons clash. Select and equip your ships, pick your crew, plan your attack, and complete your mission. The Sienar Fleet Systems TIE fighter, a lightweight and nimble starfighter designed with efficiency and affordability in mind, is the X-wing's opposite in nearly every conceivable way. But what the TIE fighter lacks in defensive capabilities, it more than makes up for in numbers. While one TIE fighter seldom presents a real threat to a skilled Rebel pilot, two or more working in concert can quickly overwhelm ships several times their size. Intuitive Rules Have You Fighting in Minutes “We'll have to destroy them ship to ship. Get the crews to their fighters." –Darth Vader X-Wing includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as thirteen Ship cards (featuring nine Imperial and four Rebel pilots), five Upgrade cards, and three fully assembled and painted ships. With the quick-start rules, you can simply select one of the exciting missions, position your ships on the playing space as instructed, and choose your opening move. Fast and visceral, X-Wing puts you in the middle of fierce Star Wars firefights. Use each craft’s unique maneuver dial to secretly plot its movement action for each turn. After each player has locked in his movement decisions, the dials are revealed and ships are moved, starting with the lowest skilled pilots. Pepper the enemy with blaster fire as you rush into the dogfight, or move into combat range slowly, attaining deadly target locks before you launch a devastating attack. No matter your plan of attack, you’ll be in total control throughout the tense action. To move your ships, simply use the maneuver template guide that corresponds to the maneuver you've chosen for a given turn. First, place the starting end of the movement guide flush with the base of your craft. Then, pick up your miniature and place it at the end of the template. After all the ships have moved, you're free to determine attacks against any enemies in range. This straightforward mechanic delivers a wealth of tactical depth; make sharp turns, execute amazing Koiogran turns, and outmaneuver your opponent! Choose Your Crew and Arm Your Starfighters “That little droid and I have been through a lot together.” –Luke Skywalker Build your own squadron using X-Wing’s advanced rules to select your favorite starfighters, pilots, and upgrades. Before the game begins, you’ll have a set amount of Fleet Points to invest, which you may spend to customize your squad. Whether you enter the fight with a Rookie Pilot, an experienced Red Squadron Pilot, or even the resourceful Luke Skywalker, you’ll have a range of options before you even fire up your engines. Moreover, you can arm your ships with astromech droids, extra weapons, or special skills, which have a significant impact on your fighter’s battle performance. For example, while the powerful X-wing can establish a target lock on Imperial starfighters, increasing its offensive potential on a future attack, only the nimble TIE fighter can execute an evasive barrel roll to avoid incoming fire. For additional firepower, add lethal proton torpedoes to your X-wing, or increase the performance of your TIE fighters with skills like Marksmanship. These unique actions, along with a range of special upgrades, help create a unique play experience every time. Recreate the Most Memorable Battles in the Galaxy “Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances.” –Grand Moff Tarkin X-Wing can be played in a variety of ways. Select one of the thrilling missions in the rulebook for a narrative game, or dogfight with your opponent until only one ship remains. You can even create your own exciting scenarios or recreate a mission based on one of the epic battles from the films. No matter how you play X-Wing, only the most clever pilots employing a range of tactics will emerge victorious. What's more, no mission will ever play the same way twice, thanks to a range of customization options, varied maneuvers, and possible combat outcomes. Damage, for example, is determined through dice and applied in the form of a shuffled Damage deck. Most damage results require you to draw a Damage card and place it facedown by the ship’s card as a reminder the ship has been hit; however, each time your fighter sustains a critical hit, you'll draw a Damage card and place it faceup by the ship’s card. Critical hits assign a special handicap. Was your targeting computer damaged, affecting your ability to acquire a lock on the enemy? Perhaps an ill-timed weapon malfunction will limit your offensive capabilities. Or worse yet, your pilot could be injured, compromising his ability to focus on the life-and-death struggle in which he is engaged… With its dynamic rules system, beautifully detailed components, and range of gameplay options, X-Wing immerses players in the tense cinematic excitement of Star Wars interplanetary combat. Take to the stars, and decide the fate of the galaxy!
  4. Magic: The Gathering is a both a trading card and digital collectible card game created by Richard Garfield.[1] Released in 1993 by Wizards of the Coast, Magic was the first trading card game created and it continues to thrive, with approximately twenty million players as of 2015,[2][3][4] and over twenty billion Magic cards produced in the period of 2008 to 2016 alone.[5] Magic can be played by two or more players in various formats, which fall into two categories: constructed and limited. Limited formats involve players building a deck spontaneously out of a pool of random cards with a minimum deck size of 40 cards. In constructed, players created decks from cards they own, usually 60 cards with no more than 4 of any given card. Magic is played in person with printed cards, or using a deck of virtual cards through the Internet-based Magic: The Gathering Online, or on a smartphone or tablet, or through other programs. Each game represents a battle between wizardsknown as "planeswalkers", who employ spells, artifacts, and creatures depicted on individual Magiccards to defeat their opponents. Although the original concept of the game drew heavily from the motifs of traditional fantasy role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, the gameplay of Magic bears little similarity to pencil-and-paper adventure games, while having substantially more cards and more complex rules than many other card games. New cards are released on a regular basis through expansion sets. An organized tournament systemplayed at an international level and a worldwide community of professional Magic players has developed, as well as a substantial secondary marketfor Magic cards. Certain Magic cards can be valuable due to their rarity and utility in game play, with prices ranging from a few cents to thousands of dollars.

    What is Blood Bowl

    Blood Bowl is a fantasy football game created by Jervis Johnson for the British games company Games Workshop as a parody of American Football.[1] The game was first released in 1986 and has been re-released in new editions since. Blood Bowl is set in an alternate version of the Warhammer Fantasy setting, populated by traditional fantasyelements such as human warriors, goblins, dwarves, elves, orcs and trolls. The most recent purchasable edition of the game contains a printed copy of Living Rulebook 1.0. However, the most up-to-date version of the game's rules is the Competition Rules Pack, or CRP. This is no longer available from the Games Workshop's website, but can be found on thenaf.net, which is the global fan organisation for Blood Bowl. At Warhammer Fest 2016, Games Workshop showed various elements of an upcoming new edition of the game, which will feature the current CRP rules and feature a double sided board and all new plastic miniatures.[2] The announced edition of the game (Named Blood Bowl 2016 Edition) was released worldwide in time for the 2016 Christmas season.

This only shows a fraction of our frankly extravagant selection, the rest of which are available by clicking on the little Categories Dropdown, and choosing Emoticons, which at time of writing shows 204 of them. They should populate the little box and you can choose at will.

The show was well supported by local clubs from the region, and some superb models were on display. Model traders supported the event as well to provide plenty for everyone attending to look around and spend their money on. The tombola prize draw also proved very popular with all the prizes being won before lunchtime, and this raised a good sum for Help The Heroes. The model competition was well supported and produced some fine examples in all the categories. CSMC would like to thank everyone who attended to support this new event in the modeling calendar. As an new event at a new venue, the feedback was very positive. The venue provides alot of space for displaying clubs and traders, and the facilities on site were very good, with hot bacon rolls, hot and cold drinks available all day at the bar.
