Epic X-Wing Battle

There are great advantages being in a Wargaming Club. One of those is that you can game with different kinds of gamers, those who enjoy campaigns and others who prefer a more competitive style of play. And many that are between those opposing sides. One of those gamers loves to play “epic” X-Wing battles with ideally more than 400 points on each side. This made it possible for me to field my whole collection of X-Wing ships. And more.

We played with two Imperials against one Rebel, each side containing one really big ship (Tantive vs. Raider). The battle was for the most time in balance; the K-Wings were shot down pretty soon (having exposed themselves too far), while the Tie-Fighters engaged the Tantive in really close combat (two or three of them crashed against the giant ship). The Tie-Bombers and Interceptors engaged the A-, B- and X-Wings in the middle of the battlefield.

The battle in full turmoiil. Note how close Tantive and Raider got.

In the long run, the massive amount of hull points granted an Imperial victory. Also, the fact that the Rebel player had to keep his mind focused  the whole time while the Imperial players could help each other helped too.
