So, this blog post was originally going to be a battle report on the two versus two X-wing game from last Friday night. It was Murl and I against Cheef and Vortil. Vortil got to debut his Decimator and I was trying the Rebel Transport for the first time. Cheef was first up for taking pics for his blog .... and had a camera with no battery in it. So that put me up next .... and every single picture I took of the game didn't save on my phone. No idea why, so the whole thing was crash and burn. While the rebels took a pretty big beat down, it was fun running over the Decimator and a Lambda shuttle at the same time with the rebel transport.
Now, on to Bolt Action and the progress there. I'm slowly starting to acquire some models for this force and have a Red Devils box, a para recon jeep box with it's two jeeps, and a para medium mortar blister. Also, I found a nice set of reasonably priced pin markers to use from a place over in North Carolina so they arrived two days after I paid for them on eBay. They're nice nickel sized metal tokens with a bottom that raises them slightly to make them easy to pick up. I'm really happy with these and got 3 sets of 10 for a bit over $20 including shipping. The company is called Battlemarkers and can be found here as well as on eBay. In addition to Bolt Action, they make markers for a variety of other game systems.
