Going Star Wars X-Wing

So I have been a little Star Wars crazy this past month.

I have gotten into Star Wars Destiny, Star Wars Armada, Star Wars Imperial Assault and also Star Wars X-Wing.

OK to be honest I haven't played Imperial Assault or Armada, but I have a huge fleet of Armada arriving on Wednesday.  I found a deal I couldn't pass up.  My B-Day is next month and I already requested Imperial Assault as a potential gift.

As a gamer, I am always trading/selling stuff I used to be into and now am not.

A good example is Warmachine.  When it was first released I absolutely loved the game.  A few jacks and a single figure controlling them was a ton of fun.  Then things started to get expensive.  Privateer press started adding in all sorts of infantry and then larger and larger Jacks.  At some point, I just gave up.

I see people play all the time, but it just hasn't appealed to me.

Then came my Star Wars obsession.  I saw Star Wars when it was first released back in the 70's and have always been a fan.  Sometimes more, sometimes less.

For the past few months I have been playing Star Wars Destiny and really love the game.  Of course to get the good cards can be quite expensive.  Still for now at least I don't mind the cost.  I figure if I really get bored I can always sell the cards/dice on ebay and recoup some of my money.

After playing Destiny of course I have to get into some of the other Fantasy Flight offerings, thus X-Wing, Armada, and Imperial Assault.

Below are just some of my Warmachine figures I am hoping to trade for some X-Wing.  I am posting them up on Bartertown and see if I get any bites.

Ral Partha 15mm Fantasy 1979

So I was digging through my miniatures and came across some I picked up in 1979. This range was present in the 1980 and 1982 catalogs. Dennis Mize was credited as the sculptor.

They came from Ral Partha's Armies Of Myth and Legend.
