2017 is the fiftieth anniversary of GEN CON, and Wowzers this year is being all kinds of DAM-GLORIOUS! On Thursday WIZKIDZ previewed New STAR TREK ATTACK WING Card Expansions which they plan for all factions to improve ('ish... LOL!) the game. Kinda funny & cute, but it is a worthy effort I think.
More importantly Fantasy Flight Games has announcedSTAR WARS: LIGIONand shown us X-WING WAVE TWELVE!
Checkout the unexpected amount of coolness present in the Vaksai half of Guns For Hire in the new Vaksai article! Fantasy Flight was serious this time, and has made one of the top end expansion packs in the entire game... Go SCUM!
There are all kinds of goodies in this Badass Expansion! The new Titles and Pilots are just cool and so damn scummy. The new Ordnance, Upgrades, and Conditions that we have seen in The Viper and Vaksai Previews shows that this a must have new addition to the game... Great work Fantasy Flight, Wow!
Sandy Pete's CTHULHU WARS ONSLAUGHT 3 ends this Monday. It has been a great success and the really cool stretch goals have all been met. The biggie for me in this series is The Mask Of Nyarlathotep Expansion!
I have been letting my STAR BLAZERS Collection and game project slide for to long, so I put some money and effort into getting that updated this month! There are a lot of super cool new models coming out with the new 2202 series and I have to own them. Move up on the project rosters little buddies!
We got a nice official preview of the TIE Silencer last week from The STAR WARS Show-D23 Event. This week I saw another ship appear online that I am pretty certain will be The NEW First Order TIE Bomber. Check it out!
I am looking forward to getting a full collection of badass First Order ships this year! Do it Fantasy Flight... DO IT!
It looks like we are going to have a wonderful third version of our beloved Yamato for Halloween this year! My Japanese buddies online are great about sharing the news from their part of the world and sure enough images for the new 1/000 scale kit are showing up now.
Bandai previewed the raw prototype months back but now we can see just how lovely Yamato 3 is! This new 2202 version has the full badass large scale lighting kit like all of the new UNCN Battleships... of course!
We can expect to see more images of the kit and the beautiful cover art soon; as the October release date is not far off! I should think this is going to be the best version of Yamato in 1/1000 scale!
I have been happy about the TIE Aggressor since I knew about the contents of the expansion. This ship brings a lot of fun and general improvements to The Imperial Fleet. Sure some meanies say it is a bad ship but for the most part they are meta-dopes and their opinion does not matter to us. We know The REAL FFG STAR WARS Spaceship Game is EPIC!
I have not made my Wave 11 purchases yet, because I bought all kinds of wonderful Yamato 2199 and 2202 ship kits... hurray! Now of course the TIE Aggressor Expansion has sold out at most of the popular venues and I have to giggle about it.
Remember the K-WING drama... and now that excellent ship has been OOS for months... for reasons.
...no it ain't! Come Hell or High Water... this Glory Will Be on My Table soon!
Dam you FFG... next time you release a cool ship like this... MAKE MORE (I only need 6) !!! Amused and Mildly Aggravated Boss out!
