X-Wing Miniatures Game - JumpMaster 5000

I met Juice at Mox Boarding House on Wednesday for some dinner and X-Wing miniatures.  He had just bought the Mist Hunter Expansion Pack (Zuckuss and 4-LOM) and the Punishing One Expansion Pack (Dengar), and so he brought a two-JumpMaster 5000 / one G-1A build.

I brought my Fat Chewie with Wedge build (98 Points):

Wedge Antilles / X-Wing (29)

  • R2-D2 (4)
  • Veteran Instincts (1)
  • Shield Upgrade (4)

Chewbacca / YT-1300 (42)

  • Predator (3)
  • C-3PO (3)
  • Luke Skywalker (7)
  • Millenium Falcon (1)
  • Shield Upgrade (4)

We ended up playing two games.  In the first, Wedge was defeated early, but Chewie hunted down each opposing ship one by one, using C-3PO to block a ton of damage.  The Falcon had a majority of its hull damage left when the game ended.  In the second game, even though Wedge lived a bit longer, the game was much closer.  The game ended with just four hull left on the Falcon.   Juice brought Boba Fett on one of the JumpMaster 5000, and had he rolled one critical hit, I would have lost C-3PO and that would have been the end of my damage blocking.  I used the Falcon's maneuverability to my advantage, taking into account the unique lack of symmetry on the JumpMaster 5000 dial.  I was fortunate that my build matched up well against Juice's list, so I'll be curious to see how m other builds do against it in the future.
