Yeah if you fancy! Bear in mind there's fournextra soldiermtypes in the new book though, anyone need a copy to look at?

I'm happy to just ignore those types for my list until I have the book.

Definitely want to start a campaign though.

We'll probably have time to do two 1v1 games rather than a 3-way thing, won't we? That's probably better.

Yeah, it's a better game too. I'll sort out a new warband list then, as two Level 0 against level 14 is slightly unbalanced...

Does Frostgrave do anything to try to balance that?

Tbf it doesn't have a massive effect, I've a couple of.extra spells and a few are slightly easier to cast. Unless the difference is about twenty levels there's not then it's not that bad. The main imbalance will be that I've had access to more gold over a few games, so some of my soldiers are the better versions. I've seen some houserules to balance it slightly, like giving you more starting gold or something. I'll play either way. My band does have a couple of the new soldiers in though as we're playing both books.

Well it probably makes sense to have us all start at level zero I suppose. I've no objection to you using the extra soldiers though.

It's a ready-made 'game void'. What's not to like?

Have you thought of any X-wing excuses?

Yep. You have all the newer ships with the broken stats and cards. I'm still using waves 1-3 and can't compete due to power creep, etc.

How's that?

I'd expect you to be using as many of the ships that you've bought but haven't had a chance to use yet as you can. That's what I'm doing.

TIE Defender, Assault Carrier, Imperial Aces, etc.?

Haven't got the assault carrier yet and imperial aces isn't out yet! And i've used the defender...

Pete, just something else I stumbled across about the Gunner crew. The second attack it grants apparently does not have to be at the same target. So with an early shooter, you can potentially use it to strip the defences (Focus/Evade tokens) of two enemy ships for the rest of your squad to attack later on.

Crikey! Thats quite powerful then. Where do you get this info?!

If it's the same place I get my Bolt Action rules info you should probably just ignore it.
