The X-Wing Miniatures Game remains a firm favourite at the school tabletop gaming club, a combination of simple, fun rules and great looking models sees it played on a regular basis. It has been great fun building up the fleets to include special abilities, but I was keen to broaden the range of scenarios available in the time that we have allotted; enter 'Mr. Chompy!' This Giant Space Worm is from 'Combatzone Scenery' and is made from plaster that has been specially impregnated with a resin to make it more durable and comes primed and ready to paint. The detailing is such that having airbrushed the basic colours, I simply added further colour by dry brushing before picking out a few details here and there.
This is a fun addition to any game, with unwary ships likely to be missing a chunk or two if they fly too close! The additional rules allow the 'Mr. Chompy' to attack up to range one, causing another variable to an already fun game.
As for points, well the longest edge of the base is a 120mm, as is the height of the piece, but is it a terrain piece or monster on a base? Fortunately, I don't have to make that decision.
Be still my beating heart, a regular submission from Mssr. Awdry outside the theme rounds?! This is a propitious day indeed! :)
What a cool figure and a great addition to the X-Wing game. I like the colours you've chosen for the whale/worm, especially his blue tongue. I know that the kids at your school will love it. Actually, I could see that this would work very nicely for Armada games as well, especially with the greater contrast in scales. Hmm, I think I need one...
Looking at the dimensions of this beastie let's call him the equivalent of a 28mm vehicle - so 15 points for you, Michael. This will put you well within striking range of your points target for this edition of the Challenge, well done sir!
