Darth Badger is Victorious at the X-Wing South West Regional!!!!!!


Last Saturday I entered the X-Wing South West regional event at Clifton Road Games in Exeter.
I have only been playing the game for about 3 weeks but have been really enjoying it so thought it could be a fun day out.
The local club leader Tom (Chew-ginga) joined me and we headed of to go PEW PEW for the day.

The plan was to do a full report on the event, who I played, what they used and such. But, I got caught up playing games, laughing, chatting and having a great day I totally forgot that plan.  I did get a shot of the standings after round 2 though which listed everyone that played!

My list for the day was a TIE Fighter swarm.  I had run a similar list the week before with good results and lander the single Fighter expansion on ebay a couple of day before the event. This gave me the pilots I was after to make a decent looking force of 100pts.

Howlrunner + Stealth Device
Backstabber
Dark Curse
Mauler Mithel
Night Beast
Black Squadron Pilot - Draw Their Fire

How had I managed with this list in the past? Well, I hadn't used it before. Round 1 was the first game with it.


To my surprise I was in the final 4 cut after the first 4 rounds. In each game I had only only lost 2 Fighters and won with a clear 100pts of the opponents force destroyed.
The semi was a lot closer. 3 Fighters down vs a Firespray and 2 Interceptors.
Everyone had a single damage point left and lucky dice won me that one with 2 Fighters remaining.


The final was against another player that had only had a few games before this event.  A Falcon list flew towards me and the dice were in my favour again.


At the end of the day, Darth Badger had won the 4 round swiss and the 4 person cut. Finished the day with and awesome trophy, plastic focus, rebel patch, token bag and an invite to the World Champs in America in November!






Sooooooo pleased!
Had a great day and would like to say massive thank you to Steve at Clifton Road Games for running the event, all the players that attended and Chew-ginga for giving me a new Interceptor for taking him!

Will I be off to America? I don't know yet.

  1. Good job! I won the local Kessel Run tournament with a similar list. 4 Obsidian Squadron TIE fighters and 2 Storm Squadron TIE Advanced. I never got an invite or anything to the next level of competition, but I figure that boils down to not actually having a regional tournament where I live.
