Who remembers the Assault on Hoth board game? My mate Dean revamped it with 6mm figures and other vehicles and we played our first game of it in over twenty years this weekend. There’s a quoty AAR on my blog, please have a look here:
Thanks for reading!

So cool, I loved this game. I lost mine years ago! Have you played the end or version?22/01/2018 at 09:35 #82398
Thanks OldBen. It’s a really good game isn’t it? I have played the Endor version, but not for about twenty years, from what I remember it was nowhere near as good as this one.

West end games put out the three games including Escape from the Death Star which has been compared to Candyland. There aren’t a lot of good Star Wars board games out there, excluding the expensive miniature ones like Legion.23/01/2018 at 06:39 #82506
Where did your pal get the AT_ATs from? I’ve been looking for some reasonably priced small scale ones (the Bandai 1/144 ones are £37 each!).

@oldben1 I wasn’t aware of the Death Star game, I’ll have a look at it on BGG. I agree a lot of old SW games are guff, but FFG seem to be making decent ones recently, I’ve played X-Wing and Rebellion (for three turns…) and enjoyed both. I have also been coveting Armada from afar. I also like the WEG Star Wars Miniatures battles system, I think it works pretty well as a wargame.
@martinr He told me that they came from Poundland (or one of the equivalents) as a set with the snowspeeders in a minigame. The AT-STs were from the same but an Endor themed minigame. I’m afraid he didn’t tell me the name, but I’ll ask him.
