Star Trek : Attack Wing

Anybody fancy a go at this?



It uses the same movement mechanics as Star Wars X Wing but adds the concepts of captains, crew members and cloaking and other such things.

The models aren't as good as the X Wing ones but they can be touched up with a little painting, though they're good enough to play with.



The starter kit is £22 on Amazon and expansion ships are about £10 - 12 each.



If you don't know who I am, I play boardgames with Pete, Matt and Kieron every few weeks.

I do fancy a go at this, but given that I never end up using my own X-wing stuff these days (I bring it to a game and end up using someone else's models nine times out of ten) I wouldn't buy into it straight away.

Having captains etc sounds interesting. Battles in Star Trek are more along the lines of ships of the line firing salvoes at each other, rather than the dogfights in Star Wars, so it's good that there seems to be a difference in how it plays.

Get a set and let's have a go!

But do note that it's unlikely you'll be able to see the phasers firing and stuff as in your first picture...

I'd like to try it. Thing is with this one, I think it can be cheaper as there are no big ships to buy, and you can just pick 1 faction and stick with it.

As I suggested this, I get first pick, bagsy Romulans!

I think I might like Klingons for this. But would want to try the game first!

Apparently it plays alot like wings of war...

Well if Wes wants to do Federation we could both sell you our Klingon ships, and me and him can exchange the other ones with each other. Saves you buying a starter set as well.

Yeah I'll do Federation. It's also possible to be Cardassion and Jem Hadar. The Borg are in a second phase apparently, There are also some independents, the Reliant expansion comes with Khan for example.

So if I pick up the starter set this week, anyone around to play it this weekend?

Pretty sure that's supposed to be spelled as "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAN".

Both nights good for me. Don't know if Matts bothered and has a preference of evening. Shall we say tomorrow night at 7? Any preference on location?

I'll go get them tomorrow lunch, just hope the guy honours the Facebook price.

I've asked if they'd do 2 for £50. Worth a try!

Just FYI, I can't really afford this at the moment. But if somebody wants to buy me a Cardassian fleet, I won't object...

Although, if it's any good, I might consider Borg in phase 2.

I like it. Its different enough from x-wing to make it a game worth playing.

Plus its funny watching Wes crash into a planet...

He crashed into the same planet twice, in fact.

Yeah let's casually gloss over the fact that I won 3 out of the 5 games that were played.

24 Re: Star Trek: Attack Wing on Thu Dec 05, 2013 10:26 pm

I only played two games though. So immediately, three of those games don't count, and you suck.

And we don't deal with facts, we deal with abuse.

We lost much more impressively than you won!
