Victory to the Empire

Hello everyone, I hope you have had a good Christmas and for those of you in the UK I hope you have not been adversly effected by the bad weather we are experiencing at the moment. I haven't done any painting all week because we have been busy preparing for Christmas and then clearing up after it! Besides, I've been so stuffed with turkey and trimings I have hardly had the energy to move out of my chair until today. 

I recieved a nice haul of goodies from Santa this year, including the X-Wing Miniatures Game which I have been drooling over for some time. I've only got the basic set at the moment but I'm already planning some supplimentary purchases as I can see this being a fun favourite in the Hadley household. The reason for this is my youngest daughter - the Young Padawan no less - has been playing the Quick Play rules with me, and she's won two games out of two!  

Seriously, nothing is quite as humiliating as having your arse handed to you by an 8 year old!  

Right, time to break out the credit card and get an arms race going! 


  1. If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em. Good luck Lee ;)


  2. Ahhh yes Ewok Pilots. Not to be under estimated. X wing is a good game and I know Fran wants to play it as well so playing an 8 year old will be good practice.

  3. Lee you will find X wing very enjoyable and some of the new ships add an extra dimension to the game

  4. Hi Lee, I got the same basic game too - and my girlfriend played me (her first wargame experience). She completely thrashed me too flying both of her Tie Fighters like she was the Richtofen brothers - honestly I was fodder to her laser guns!
    Best wishes,

  5. My brother-in-law smacked me down with chewie and luke in the falcon vs me with two ties and an advanced. I think I only did 3-4 worth of shields down before all of my guys where sucking vacuum.

  6. Ha ha ha, just love that pic!!! Don't you just love 'em!

  7. The new ships for 2014 look great and a fab price too

  8. Awesome! Have fun with Star Wars... it is a great game and it just keeps sweeping up people in my play groups like crazy... also, my 9 year old son Nate regularly trashes me, where I trash people my own age. It's a good sign, Dad! Be proud!




Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, keep rolling high!
