First match at Viking Con 2014 Escalation. Here with 60 point squad, against the empire. I won the match comfortably, but not sure by how much.
Second match at Viking Con 2014 Escalation. Here with 90 point squad, against rebel B-wings. I got a very marginal victory of 51-47 points.
Third match at Viking Con 2014 Escalation. Here with 120 point squad, against another rebel squad with three B-wings and one X-wing (Wedge). Squads closing on each other.
Just before the real action starts. In this match we both had Wedge and there was a competition of who first shot down Wedge - I thought I got it, but he was shot down on another table 10 seconds before I managed the kill.
In the end I lost this third macth 85-120. It was an extremely exciting and fun game which could have ended either way. Although I lost, this was the most fun game of the day - that is why I love this game - its even fun to loose!
My full 150 point squad ready for the final match. Repainted just for today, so Ducht Vander has his red R5-K6 astromech droind (top left), Horton Salm is flying a grey squadron Y-wing bottom left, and top middle has Airen Cracken in his red Z-95.
This was the first time I've ever faced such a big Tie swarm - 9 ships aginst my 6 is rather intimidating.
The squads are closing in.
Still in formation - but that soon goes out the window!
Final stages of the battle - it took a lot of effort to kill Darth Vader in the Tie Advanced, but in the end I won 150-111 points in yet another match that could have gone both ways. Was really quite surprised I managed to hold my own agains soo many ships. A great fun day at my first tournament. I was expecting a beating but am very pleased coming 6th out of 18.
