Fantasy Flight Previews Movement in Star Wars 2nd Edition

One of the things people noticed when Fantasy Flight started posting previews of the new 2nd edition materials for the X-Wing Miniatures Game was that the maneuver dials looked different.

Fantasy Flight Previews TIE Reaper For X-Wing

When you think of a TIE fighter, you think primarily of something light and quick, a single-seater fighter with high maneuverability and a distinct lack of thick hull and shield.

Fantasy Flight Previews General Veers Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

General Veers is probably my favorite character from Star Wars. For all the series tells us that the Empire is cold, ruthless, and efficient, it’s at the battle of Hoth that we finally really see it.

Soon, he’ll be able to bring that to your tabletops in Star Wars: Legion.

Fantasy Flight Previews the Investigators of Sanctum of Twilight

This is going to be a lot more delicate an operation than the Investigators have handled before. And it’s a preview of those Investigators coming in the Sanctum of Twilight expansion for Mansions of Madness that we get here.

It’s slow going, ladies and gentlemen, but we’ll make it to that weekend eventually! I mean, time goes forward, right? Right?!
I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m waiting on some packages in the mail, but it seems like this week’s taking an eternity. The last couple zipped by. This week? Not so much. But we just gotta hang on and we’ll make it there.
Plus, this weekend is Board Game Day up at the library. And while most don’t use much in the way of terrain, that doesn’t mean we can’t all enjoy terrain for whatever games you might be playing this weekend.

Monday Terrain Corner

Hey everyone out there in Internet Land. For those here in the States (besides Florida), how’re you handling the time change? Being a morning person already, it wasn’t so bad for me. I actually felt that much of yesterday was later than it actually was (so, the opposite of what you’d expect). I’d be going, “wait, it’s not 4:30 yet?” when it was actually something like 1:30. But I’m getting the hang of it. Anyway, we need to make sure your gaming tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Fantasy Flight Games Announces Priority Supplies and Barricades for Star Wars: Legion, North Pass Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, The Lost Islands 3D printable Terrain for RPG and Wargames Up On Kickstarter, and The Hall of Portals Gaming Map Available From Heroic Maps.
