Greetings to the new forum!
I’ve recently started getting into X-wing Miniatures and am absolutely LOVING it! I’ve been primarily working on getting a Rebel fleet together (with a few X-wings and a YT-1300), but since my gamer friends haven’t started playing it just yet, I have also fleshed out my Tie Fighter collection so I have something to play against that they can use until they buy in.
And can’t wait until Blue Sun for Firefly. Although that means the wife and I need to buy a bigger kitchen table…

Hi John, and welcome!
X-Wing does rock, I agree. My last game was with the Rebel Transport and it really shook the game up; the change in scale gave it a great feel. Looking forward to getting that huge Tantive IV on the table too.
Firefly is also a favourite, especially with the Pirates and Bounty Hunters expansion, which is an essential buy I think. I’m looking forward to seeing what Blue Sun adds.July 30, 2014 at 12:03 pm #6538
I loved X-wing in the beginning but ended up not playing it a bunch so I sold it. I’m more of a play a lot of games a few times than a play a few games a lot of times guy.
I’m a bit hesitant on Firefly. I love Merchants of Venus and Merchants and Marauders so I’m not sure of I need another pick up and delivery game.July 30, 2014 at 12:21 pm #6539
Firefly is great fun, but you’re right, unless you’re big fan of the theme it probably isn’t different enough from both of those games (though I have all three).July 30, 2014 at 1:12 pm #6543
The theme is definitely what drove me to play Firefly, and with the pvp addition in Pirates and Bounty Hunters it upped the ante. Luckily I have a dual-purpose use for X-wing minis: We use them in an Edge of the Empire campaign that I GM. In fact, that was the driving factor for me purchasing them in the first place. The fact that it’s a fun skirmish mini game (that I’m not required to paint 56-60 miniatures to paint in order to play) is a huge bonus.
I’m definitely interested in the big ship battles, but I’m going to concentrate on getting a solid 100-point fleet or two together first.
