The summer X-Wing campaign heats up as we cover our second and third week of competition. We began our week two game day with a bar-b-que of bratwurst and burgers. Afterwards we discussed many things concerning our club. Topics included: 2015 Game Schedule, Possibility of adding Flames of War, X-Wing/Star Wars RPG joint campaigns and battles, and our next game for 2014.
The Empire maintains a firm grasp on the Karthakk system. Boba Fett has now entered the Geonosis system with Ten Numb in hot pursuit. Horton Salm and Gray Squad double back to take the offensive against the Empire. Vader feels a desire for revenge from the Rebels and is impressed. He senses the Gray Squadron long before engaging them. Horton Salm proves the Force is truly with the Gray Squad as they blast their way to victory.
|Surrounded by Rebels is the last place Darth Vader expected to be today.|
Deeper into the Geonosis system Ten Numb has his eyes on the Slave-One. The Blue Squad quickly dispatches the Imperial escort and completely destroys the Slave-Ones' shields. Once again Boba Fett manages to escape Rebel capture. Having expended a large amount of his payload in the battle he quickly makes his way to the planet Geonosis.
|Yet another crafty escape by the bounty hunter Boba Fett.|
On our third week of the X-Wing campaign we crafted and painted a 3'x3' game board. Afterwards we discussed the further delays of Robotech RPG Tactics. Decided to fill our fall game spot previously set aside for this new game with one voted for by the members. We fought 2 more exciting battles on our newly-crafted larger battlefield, ending this game day with a fish fry to rival the gods. Young Country caught fresh catfish from Lake Texoma. It was served with fries, hush puppies, baked beans, and pie. Now on to the action of week three.
|The planet Geonosis, the setting of our week three battles.|
Ten Numb has his target in sight leaving the atmosphere of the planet Geonosis. A grueling and epic battle ensues. One by one the Rebels fall to the might of this fearsome bounty hunter. Boba Fett cannot be denied as he shreds the Blue Squad. This victory earns the Slave-One safe passage out of the Geonosis system and one step closer to Jabba's Palace. The Rebels are no closer to rescuing Han Solo in this part of the campaign.
|Boba Fett has no problem destroying the Rebels and leaving for the Tatoo system.|
Horton Salm stays on the offensive as they engage the Sigma Squad. T he Gray Squad find that The Force is more powerful than the Dark Side as they scrore another victory against the dreaded Darth Vader. This win grants the rebels control over the Geonosis system. This part of the campaign is tied with the Rebels and Empire each controlling one system.
|Darth Vader was unwilling to speak with the media following his second loss.|
The battles were intense and the feasts amazing. A huge Thank You! to our favorite wookie Chewy, Young Country, and their entire family for the hospitality, fellowship and giving the The Wargate a permanent home in Texas.
