My first X-Wing battle report... comic book style!

Hey all!

Well... I had a buddy over last night, and we had our first game of X-Wing!  I took Darth Vader and six crappy TIE Fighters.  He took Luke with Artoo, Biggs, a Red Squadron Pilot, and Horton Salm with an Ion turret.

I attempted to flank his force of Rebels with half of my TIE Fighters, but unfortunately he turned right  towards on group and engaged them all at once, leaving me with half of my guys facing an entire enemy force!  It didn't go well, as you will see...

And I hope it makes sense; there are one or two mistakes that hopefully you won't notice... the photos saved all out of order, so I did the best I could!  And I don't know why the cycle-through lightbox isn't working right...

Anyway... enjoy!

Well done. Love the inclusion of the film stills.

And Vader's one word line, too. :-)

Very nicely done! How did you put together each page? Was it an app or just good photoshop skills?

Hey guys! Glad you enjoyed!:) And yeah, poor Vader...

I put it together using Comic Life 2. It was SOOOOO simple it was ridiculous. Free for the first 30 days... not sure how much it costs after that. The only thing I would do in the future is not crop the photos beforehand... it somewhat limited how I could use them:)

Anyway... thanks for stopping by and leaving comments; always nice to talk toy soldiers!:)
