Neil of Orange here with unusually rapid progress on more miniatures!
Neil of Orange here with a bit of a hobby update from the world of Malifaux. I'm a big fan of Wyrd's flagship game and a "Henchman" for the local area, running demos, games and events for Malifaux. This means I am constantly dabbling with miniatures from the range and with the release of the second edition (M2E as its being called) there's been a flood of new plastic kits containing some fantastic (in all senses of the word) models.
Players ask "Which faction do you collect?" and I retort "Which don't I collect?". This is an important point for many collectible games. In Star Trek Attack Wing, you can mix up your fleet with different ships and cards unless the organiser says otherwise. This allows you to look into options beyond a single faction and in many ways quadruples (at the moment) the card pool. Variation is the spice of life and Star Trek delivers.
Thanks to Christian Forst, we have some crisper images from the STAW products shown at Essen.
This is a great shot of the Independent Flagship card. From what I can tell, it reads:
"When defending, all other friendly ships within Range 1 of your flagship gain +1 defense die.
+Battle Stations action
+1 Primary weapons
In all the rage of space ship miniature games lately, I decided to fork out for a 3x3 (foot) vinyl mat to play on. I'd previously got some 3v3 MDF boards cut but quickly realised that you need more space to put all the cards on for the likes of X-Wing and Star Trek Attack Wing. When playing on larger boards, you can easily forget where the board edge is and fly your ships off to their doom! So, a 3v3 map on a larger table seems the best compromise. However, you can of course buy larger dimensions if needed.
