Now IF I was to get a core set, you recommend getting the Most Wanted pack? That would be better than getting both core sets?
It would add a third faction to your play and open up some double-duty ships to invest in next (Slave I, HWK, and one other).

Whether you should do that instead of a second Core set, well... I'm not sure.
Hmm, I want to think about this. Anyone have any idea how long this sale will last? I can't seem to find it on Coolstuffinc's site.

Re: X-Wing

I don't see where it says how long the sale will last, either. (And I have to keep telling myself I don't really need more stuff right now...)

I would recommend one of each Core set. That gives you both types of X-Wings and both TIEs to play with, plus you can do a little bit of list-building with a few ships for each faction (though getting more/better upgrades from other packs will be key). You'll also find the extra dice very handy, and a second set of templates is nice if you're planning on playing with friends, too.

Two core sets it is then. I'm going to do it. I know that I shouldn't. I know it'll be Heroscape all over again. Me thinking I have to have them all. My wife looking on in shame and disappointment. And my pleas of " But NecroBlade and capsocrates told me to buy it" will fall on deaf ears.

I do hope that two core sets will be enough for a month or two before I buy more? I'm thinking it'll be at least that long.

It will not be enough for the Rebels, and pushing it for the Imperials. You should buy at least one more expansion for each side.

Re: X-Wing

keglo, buying the core set - either one - is just the tip of the iceberg. It is / will be Heroscape 2.0. And truthfully, unless you're planning to jump in whole hog and plan to hit the local game store(s) for competitive play, then the 2 core sets, or whatever you decide to buy, should be sufficient for now. Buy what seems fun because it all is.

But make no mistake. It is plasticrack and you will become addicted. We all do. We all have

I haven't made it to my FLGS to play in over... 2 months? and my brother hasn't had time to play since then either, so my stuff has just been sitting around, unfortunately.

Quite a few of my miniatures do this from time to time. I had a question to all you guys that play X Wing. I have been on the fence on this one for a while because I have so many other games that sit around but are quite fun. I was talking to some guys that play this, and though they think its fun, they said that it always ends up with two ships flying back and forth past each other for the final sha-bang. The one guy said it almost is always this way. What are the pros and cons of game play here. I love miniatures and love starwars, I just need to be kicked off the fence.

My experience is that the game is more varied than that. Even when that happens though, gameplay is pretty exciting.

I love this game. I am not sure I would be into it if it were not Star Wars (although the same mechanics on a hex grid would be cool enough for me to play regardless of theme).

In the beginning that was the case, but not so much anymore. Nowadays We do a lot more maneuvering around asteroids and each other to best take advantage of position rather than simple jousting.

Re: X-Wing

I am thinking that I will probably pick up a few sets and then probably clone a handful of tie fighters and other more common ships, as the miniatures are quite expensive compared to many other games, if I jump on board.

Well, you get more than just the ship. You can several cards and upgrades per pack as well. And you can only fly a max of 8 ships on one side, so the costs are very reasonable.

Re: X-Wing

I did end up ordering both core sets. I am now considering ordering one small expansion for each faction (Rebel and Imperial), per @MegaSilver 's advice. I would love to get something like the Millennium Falcon, Slave I, Aces, Most Wanted, etc. But they are too expensive right now. I considered Most Wanted instead of the two small expansions. But I figured that one expansion wasn't enough for that faction and I would then have three incomplete factions. So I was thinking..

1x B-Wing (Rebels)
1X TIE Interceptor (Imperials)

Would this be a good choice to go with the core sets? I would love some suggestions before I purchase. (small expansions)


p.s. When searching for TIE Interceptor is see two different models depending on the site. A black one and a white one. Are there actually different models this ship?

Black

White
