Yesterday I ran my 4th Attack wing event and the 8th I have participated in. As far as turn out goes it was a bust with only two players showing up it was obvious who was going to walk away with a prize. (that would be all that showed up. :) On the other hand it was an opportunity to really have some fun. so on the fun scale it was a hit!.
The two players who showed up were both former champions and the battles they fought (we did best of three) were epic. One player brought the "Balls of Steele" (two Borg Spheres) and a Romulan Drone ship while the other brought a pure Vulcan fleet (to honor the late Leonard Nimoy.)
The first round went quick with the Vulcans getting crushed in less tan a half hour

|The Balls of Steele|
|The Romulan Drone ship drops "Cloaked Mines"|
|Then the Borg Spheres move in for the Kill|
|Notice the floating mines|
|It went south for the Vulcan Fleet pretty fast at that point|
|Down to one ship|
In rounds two and three both players agreed that the Borg list was a little too hard for such a light turn out. So the Borg player brought out a 2nd list he made up. This one primarily Klingon in the form of the Negh'var and the Regents's Flagship (Also of the Negh'var class.) as well as the Romulan Drone ship (This time without the cloaked mines.)
The battles were a little closer but the Klingons were also able to defeat the Vulcans.
|The Negh'var has been destroyed|
|Round 3- The Vulcans lose a ship early on|
|Down to one ship the Vulcan cruiser makes a break for it|
|Near the end. |
The Vulcan Ship almost gets away but is
destroyed by the Bacteria that has been plaguing both fleets
More on this soon- Keep April 11th in mind. if all goes well I will be running Attack wing demos on this day at Fairfax comics and games (That is A Saturday.) We are working on trying to build the community so come on out.
