XMG ACCESSORIES - Custom Template find

I found a British company, Cog' O' Two, that makes some really nice looking XMG compatible templates. Their prices are reasonable, so I plan on ordering a set of movement templates and range rulers from them next payday. I really like the look of their Black Sun Syndicate ones -



They also make acrylic scum maneuver dials, so I will probably order some of those too-

CRACK THE PACK: Protectorate Starfighter


Here's a quick look at the contents of the Protectorate Starfighter expansion.



First off, the starfighter mini itself and the ship's base and flight pegs -



next you get two sheets of perforated status tokens, the starfighter's maneuver dial, and ship ID tokens -




then there are six pilot cards, three unique pilots and 3 non-unique ones -













there are also two reference cards, one for the Boost Action and one for the Tallon Roll -



then there is a Title card and an Elite Pilot Talent upgrade card -



and lastly, the sheet with the starfighter's diagram of maneuvers -



Once I get a chance to use the starfighter in combat, I will post a review for it.

SCUM ACQUISITIONS: Protectorate Starfighter and Scum Maneuver Dial Upgrade kit

To start off my new collection of Scum & Villainy ships, I ordered a Protectorate Starfighter from CoolStuff Inc. last week, and it arrived earlier this afternoon.



I also ordered a pack of Scum Maneuver Dial Upgrades -



I look forward to using the Protectorate Starfighter, as I hear it plays similar to an Imperial TIE Interceptor, which is my favorite Imperial starfighter - we'll see.

Now this is my kind of Scum...



Welcome to THE BLACK SUN CHRONICLES




This blog will primarily focus on the Scum & Villainy faction of Fantasy Flight Games X-Wing Miniature Game. Like its sister blog, THE BLACKSTAR CHRONICLES, posts on The Black Sun Chronicles will cover AARs, Expansion Previews, Expansion Reviews, Squadron Builds, and Ship Repaints. I will also try to provide links to other XMG blogs, game resources, and recommended retailers.

Until the next time,
Stay Fearless and Inventive
