X-Wing Hope Holdout- Gaming Mat 1

Today's project required a bit less focus. Today I worked up a game mat for X-Wing. It's pretty much impossible to find an opponent around here (granted, I haven't really gauged Demitra's interest too much), but I needed a distraction. My next mat (I have one more) will be a big blue nebula. I like Gale Force 9's "I swear it's not the Death Star" mat, but this is just plain cheaper. Plus it gives me something to do. Now onward to painting the next piece of felt!


  1. I'm not opposed to the game, it just has to overcome my natural resistance to adding a new system. There have been a few rumblings in the WMH group at GP and from what I hear it has decent support overall. I'm not big on prepainted stuff, but it's not a deal breaker. While it may not be FFG's fault I'm still not pleased with them in the wake of all the Dust issues, but also not a deal breaker. As always the hurdle to leap is why I should put my X hobby dollars into a game that may fizzle out in a few months instead of one (40k/WMH) that is a near-lock to stick around for the foreseeable future.

    1. Here's the great thing- you don't have to invest a dime. I'm collecting the ships to collect them. All I'm looking for is an opponent!

    2. In that case I'm your huckleberry.
