For some it's definitely not an easy task, considering the game is full of lots of individual little bits and pieces, which ultimately makes the game so fun. But hopefully the pictures below will give you some good ideas how to go about storing your very own collection, which is very cost-effective. And to start things off there is no better place to look at your local £1 shop or a dollar store, whatever the case may be, as the solution lies within if you know what you're looking for. As I'm sure there is some storage cases that you can pick up for next to nothing.

Today I went down to my local friendly gaming store, and managed to pick up these bad boys to add to my x-wing collection. I'm not too sure what is exactly the appeal with X-Wing at the minute but for some reason it just seems to be ticking all the right boxes. The models look awesome, it is really cheap in comparison to games workshop stuff. Plus it's an opportunity for me and my youngest son to play something together. It is definitely going to be a game that we're going to play today, tomorrow, and no doubt long into the future. Plus who exactly doesn't like Star Wars in some shape or form, and it's definitely establishing itself as a classic.

I'm sure like many of us, we all have hobby projects that we don't get time to finish, and I'm no different. So it was about time tonight that I finally made a little bit more of an effort, to get these bad boys done, and on the table top. Although these were originally completed a few years ago it was time to update the models, to my blood axes with a World War II German feel and give them a little bit of an improvement. As overtime they had got a little bit broken, battered and bruised over the years. Plus I also wanted an opportunity of finally playing with some ordinance, as I haven't been getting the opportunity recently.

So posts at the minute are coming thick and fast as I'm trying to catch up because I haven't posted, as much as I would have liked over recent months. So with that being said below is a couple more pictures of the progress that I have been making with my custom x-wing paint jobs. The majority of which have been very simple by applying a few different washes and highlighting, the base coat that was applied by the manufacturer. Although you might not necessarily notice straight-away, but whenever you pick them up and look up close, you definitely can tell the difference. And especially when you take them to tournaments, as it is great for other gamers to notice, and also pay some Cool compliments.

So you might as well start them young as hopefully this can be a game that we can play together for many years, and I must admit I really do like the rules set as the game itself can easily be completed in less than an hour. And considering that he is only 8 year old, he has managed to pick up the rules quite easily. So I'm going to make my own BB 7's pitch hopefully over the next couple of weeks.
Plus for the photo I got him to do a big scary face. LOL

As always I like doing something that's different and unique, and over last weekend I attended an X-Wing tournament. So with that in mind it was about time that I made my models look more individual on the day. From start to finish this only took about an hour, and it's time well spent. And with the models themselves already being prepainted to a very high standard it was as simple as a few highlights and washes which is job done.

So the title really does say it all, and if everything goes to plan this will be my first post using my new iPad, and hopefully it will give me an opportunity of showcasing my first asteroids that I've used for X-Wing. While using the cardboard ones you get with the basic game is okay for some people there is nothing better than seeing them in the flesh in 3-D.
So hopefully I will get them printed up very soon.
