A week or so back, I had a chance to try out the new Tantive IV miniature for X-Wing by Fantasy Flight games. I had a blast. The ship is beautiful, it’s movement is new and unique, and it’s a tough nut to crack with plenty of shields and armor to defend itself with. We […]

BY MARK: Bridget and I got a chance to play X-Wing just the other week, and had a great time. Beforehand, we swung by Hobby Lobby, where I picked up a styrofoam half-ball and some blue paint. Once it was painted up, it looked perfect on my black felt play mat. I had just bought […]
