Star Wars Xwing VT-49 Decimator unboxing

The imperial forces have lacked a ship with a turret..... until now. Now it has arrived into my gaming collection, and will provide some firepower to the Imperial forces.  It is the biggest non  epic ship released yet, the box is huge and so is the model as you shall see later!

The VT-49 Decimator is an Imperial multi-passenger assault ship featuring two turrets. Only Imperial Ace Pilots are certified to command major ships such as Decimators; when properly crewed, a VT-49 is a very dangerous foe. Like all multi-passenger ships, the Decimator functions best when manned by a pilot, a co-pilot to operate the droid commands, and two gunners for the Decimator's formidable weapons turrets, as well as a crew member to make repairs to subsystems.
The VT49 Decimator is most correctly classified as an assault ship. It is heavily armed and

Star Trek Attack Wing R.I.S. Apnex Romulan Science Vessel unboxing

Today we are taking a look at a ship expansion pack for Star Trek Attack Wing. 

The R.I.S. Apnex was a Romulan Science-class research vessel in service to the Star Navy in the 24th century. She was named after a sea on Romulus. In the year 2368, the Apnex's crew experimented with a phase inverter cloaking device prototype. The ship was damaged and some crew members were killed when the device failed. Scientist Mirok assumed command of the ship after the captain was confirmed dead. The Federation starship USS Enterprise would later render assistance to the stricken ship.

Warlord games ITALERI Bolt Action Plastic Cromwell Cruiser Tank Review

Once more exciting times when the postal fellow arrives bearing reinforcements for my Bolt Action forces. Today we look at the British Cromwell Cruiser Tank!
As you can see I was rather excited to get started as the Cromwell is one of my favourite looking tanks. It's so.... flat.  It was a late war tank but still some of that typical British flat and awkwardness to it.

Lets take a look!

Star Trek Attack Wing Starter Set unboxing

When I was sat watching some videos online with my daughter I came across some for Attack Wing.  It is similar in concept to FFG`s X-Wing game, as it uses the flightpath system. 

Being a Trek fan I looked at the videos, and Olivia said to me, "Dad! I know how to play that" with that being said I thought we should get it to add to our gaming fun.

So on Christmas day when I unwrapped this there was much excitement to be had! It was hard to resist ripping into it without getting the pictures to share with you guys! Anyway here we go.... [Where this blog has never gone before! Couldn't resist-Morgan]
