Hiya as Dave has said we are both pretty avid X Wing fans and play on a Friday night. I really want to get into 40k so I bought one of the new 8th ed starter sets. So far I have glued 3 models together. Not enough hours in the day.

I took a break a year ago from Flames of War (late), and returned to find a new version, could anyone explain how it works? I've gone from v3 so this is my first rules update from Battlefront and I am so confused as to how they do it. There is a mid war rulebook, but then 2 free rulebooks for early/late? Sorry if I am being stupid, but I can't make sense of it, and their website isn't very easy to navigate, so I thought I would ask. Thanks in advance:)

There is a rulebook specific for kid war and 2 books covering the rules for early and late war to convert your existing v3 books over. Early late war uses a hybrid of v3 v4 of e book covers the core rules changes and the other covers the country tries special rules and heroes changes.

Tbf, it was our second game. The first one he played 1 five thinking it was a red three and then we lost our last life when he gave me a terrible clue.

At game end, he was holding a red 2 apart from his hand thinking it was the other 5 we told him about...

Was strange, from disaster game to 25!

WADDA Announcement:

The Championship Play-Off Final (sponsored by Glagnar's Human Rinds) is scheduled for Sunday 23rd July, when the heroic Zees will take on the horrible slippery Judwan slimebags for the 2017 title.

Matchday tickets are priced at 50, 100 and 200 mega-credits, programmes are 5 mc and refreshments are priced on meat freshness (the week-dead-dog burgers are quite reasonably priced at 2.50, although you have to eat them in the dark with a peg on your nose and pretend you can't feel the maggots wriggling on your tongue).

Semi-Final results:

Hoppers lose to Poisoners by 7
Outcasts beat Skullcrusherz by coin-toss
