Media - seven hills
Mid-week gaming was X-wing again, but this time we had TOO much stuff going on! Definitely need to tone it back for next time, fewer ships and fewer upgrades. We only got two rounds in, and nobody actually blew anyone up. It was pretty chaotic, but also fun. On the plus side, my newly-starred board looked fantastic. 😁

Mid-week gaming this week was X-wing, which I haven't played since 2016 when we played in the office after work with @[email protected] (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/350)! I've got a ton of miniatures but it'd been so long we stripped it back to the bare minimum core set of one X-wing and two TIE Fighters and no upgrades, just to get the hang of things again. We got two games in and both times the Empire won, even though we switched sides. We also had this magnificent moment where the X-wing and one of the TIE Fighters ended up SO CLOSE to touching it was ridiculous. 😂 There's a 2.0 version of X-wing which I'm totally going to pick up, apparently they've streamlined a bunch of stuff and actually moved all the points values off the cards and anywhere that's printed so they can update it as they go to keep power levels in check, and not have sprawling broken things they struggle to control. There was a really interesting interview about everything that's new with one of the co-designers of the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8Ilk4HYO6Q

We played another (partial) game of Kill Team tonight! And for the first time EVER, everything was fully painted. 😮 We only got a turn and a half in thanks to us taking a while to set everything up, but we're definitely getting the hang of it. I was playing Death Guard, and they have a rule called "Disgustingly Resilient" where if they would lose a wound, you roll a D6 and on a roll of 5+ the wound is not lost. It doesn't matter how many wounds, just ANY wound. One of them was attacked and was going to be dealt 9 wounds (out of a total of 12), but my Disguisingly Resilient roll was amazing and I was able to reduce it down to 4. 😂

Went over to our friend's place today for some more Wednesday night gaming, this time with me in an advisory position. He ended up winning 14-10, and both warbands were down to a single fighter at the end!

We FINALLY got a game of the new Kill Team in! We played without tac-ops or equipment just to streamline things a bit, and only got two out of the four turns done, but it was really good, can't wait to play more.

Went over to a friend's house tonight for a cheeky mid-week game of Warhammer Underworlds. Despite never having played and being down to one fighter at the end, he won 14 to 11!

My Dreadnaught got, uh, slightly swarmed. (We lost due to not paying enough attention to objectives, though we also didn't actually finish all the turns before my teammate had to get back home so technically it could have gone either way.)warhammer 40k darkroom gaming games workshop necrons tyranids seven hills chaos space marines space marines

We were over at a friend's place today and he has an airbrush. I had a play around with it, and that's it, I'm getting one. Look at the damned smoothness of this zenithal highlighting!
