I borrowed Darth Vader off a friend and added in 4 other Tie Fighters (“Mauler Mithel”, "Backstabber", "Winged Gundark" and a Black Squadron Pilot), facing off against Horton Salm (the Salami to his friends) with a seriously pimped out Y Wing, alongside two more unnammed Y Wings (aka the Dumptrucks - they have lots of shields and hit points).
|Ready for action|
|Turn 2: Tie Fighters surround the Y Wings|
|Turn 3: Initial strafing runs unsucessful, Tie Fighters turn around for another run|
|Turn 4: Y Wings 360 degree firing Ion Canons cause casualties|
|Turn 5: Vader finds himself isolated...|
|Turn 6: and alone...|
|Turn 7: Ion cannons behind me, laser cannons beside me, stuck in the middle...|
|Turn 8: and Vader goes down to a Proton Torpedo salvo|
Another good lession was that rolling lots of blank faces on the dice normally results in bad things happening... Darth seemed to be very adept at rolling three jinks or three blanks and nothing in between!
Either way I was great fun and the game was over in about an hour. With a bit of luck my Tie Advanced (with Dark and co) will arrive in the next day or so, letting me noodle up another force to try to take on Dan's Salami Dumptruck Squadron.
