Ahh that sounds perfect. I have only seen the smaller ones at Wal-Mart but I'm sure I can find them.

Now to figure out how to get a nice star field on that board.

Great trades with Onacara, Gypsy, SirGalahad, elltrain, generalgina, Concord, Just_a_Bill, LongHeroscaper, janus19390, and the very generous obfuscatedhippo.

That does look pretty awesome! But it's twice as much as the regular mats. I'll keep it in mind though.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

The problem is, for me, if I have $30 to spend on X-Wing supplies, I want to buy more ships, not a mat.
Yeah that is the way I think also. I would love one of those mats but my tiny gaming allowance needs to go for more ships or more Heroscape. I thought of using black poster board but I'm not sure where to find one that's 36 x 36 or bigger.

Wow, those look super nice. Too pricy for me however.
Friend of mine cannibalized a yoga mat for his play mat, it works pretty well, though IMO, the official mats look really cool so I shelled out the money for a real one.

Also, the announcement for the next wave dropped this week, looks pretty interesting. Looks like they are really pressing the focus on alternate firing patterns, with the Arc-170, the SF Tie and the Shadow Caster.

Re: X-Wing

I'm so happy that the ARC-170 is coming. Also, glad to have a true ace for the Scum in the form of a Fang Fighter.

Re: X-Wing

I think Ill play the dad card and ask for a neoprene mat for Father's Day. I'm like the majority of you - I'd rather buy the ships than the mat when the money is available, lol.

I have a nice vinyl map now, as well as an oversized plywood may I built out of a sheet of plywood that I spray painted black and drizzle spray other colors onto to make a star field (it looks pretty cool), but I really want a neoprene mat.

And yes, Wave 9 looks awesome. I've already calculated I'll be spending at least $250 on this wave. *sigh*

To be fair, it looks basically like a cheaper version of the Starviper (complete with a lack of an evade action) but it should be cool to see it go up against the other aces.

Re: X-Wing

Have any of you seen these neat little printable boxes for X-Wing? He has a lot of neat stuff you just print out, cut and fold. Below is just a small sample of what he has. Do any of you actually use them to organize your collection?

Ship Boxes (one for each ship type)





Gear Boxes





Damage Decks



Card Holder “Cockpit”



Modular Token Box



They can be found here if anyone is interested.

Re: X-Wing

I met someone at my local game shop that has those. They are cool but look like way too much work to put together.

They are that. I printed out one of the ship boxes just to see how hard it would be. Still, for someone like me just starting out with a few ships and growing my collection slowly, it might not bee too bad.

Re: X-Wing

I liked those card board token holders for my Imperial Assault horde of tokens, Thanks again @keglo for posting a link.

Re: X-Wing

No problem @TREX

I was finally able to try X-Wing for the first time tonight. My boy and I just played the tutorial game from the Force Awakens core set.

My boy played Rebels and I played First Order. His T-70 ended up shredding both of my TIE/FO but not before I took out all three of his shields and scoring one hit.

Even though this was the basic game without any upgrades or addons we both had a great time. I really like this game. I can't wait to open up my other core set, my B-Wing, and TIE interceptor for our first advanced game.


I have a dumb question. Are there any ships/pilots in this game that have a similar ability to Heroscape's counter strike?
