I just noticed Amazon has the expansion packs at $7.99 USD right now. That's 47% off.

Time to get my Tie swarm I think.

Jumped all over that. 3 Y-wings, 2 X-Wings, 2 TIE Fighters, and 1 Advanced TIE. Should be enough I think.

Me too! Thanks for the heads up! Finished rounding off my forces on the cheap!

My game budget is already blown and you guys go and show me this. I'm pretty sure my wife hates TMP and all of you for helping with my addiction. For my part thanks for the heads up.

Amalric, thanks for the heads up. Another Y and Adv TIE coming my way. I would get more but I have to leave something for my wife to get me. She can get me another basic set.

Cheers, Xin

Ah Crap, it was too good a deal, $4 USD bucks off from my first order. I pulled the trigger on another TIE, X and Y.

Curse you! Xin

I ended up with the base set, 4 TIE, 2 TIE Adv, 2 X-Wing and 2 Y Wing. If I need another base, I will get it later after my wife lets me out of the doghouse . . . . .

What do you guys think, is that a decent amount to get started? It gives me a total of:

3 X-Wing
2 Y-Wing
2 TIE Adv

Amalric hooked me in for some reinforcements too…

Good start I'd say.

Yeah, I bit. Picked up two more Y-Wings, another X and another Tie Advanced.

God I have a fleet already with 19 Tie, 5 Tie Advanced, 4 Y wings and 12 X wings, two Shuttles from F-toys and one MF from Revelle. I am planning on three more core sets and thought that would be it but at eight bucks, I could see several more Y-Wings and Maybe a few Tie Fighters. I am already doing 3-4 player games and we have out grown the 3X3 foot area and now use the whole wargame table.

Now I just need Plano plastic boxes to store them in!

Aww crap, they're on Prime too, so free shipping. And the core set is $31.19 USD. This is getting harder and harder to resist.

A glowing figure of Obi Wan and Yoda show up….elsyrsyn, you must go to Amazon. You must pick up some X-Wing gaming stuff. "Bamf"! Then they disappear.
