I got my butt kicked.
This afternoon, The Boy and I broke out the Star Wars minis for a massive (by our standards) 250 pt per side battle. As expected, he opted for the bad guys, which suited me fine. Or so I thought.
We'd agreed that our armies could be drawn from any era, which was probably where things went completely wrong for me, as he drew a force composed of about 2/3 droids under the command of General Grievous (who has a really frightening and perhaps unbalanced Commander Effect) with the remaining third made up of Yuzhan Vong, the Force-Resistant baddies of some of the later fiction.
For my part, I went with a really well put together squad of mixed Clone Troopers, under the orders of Commander Rex, supporting Mace Windu.
(You'll note that even though we could draw from other eras, I went for consistency. Because that's how I roll. Not that it helped.)
Anyway, given the fact that his droids were ridonkulously deadly thanks to Grievous, and Windu was hindered by the Vong, I lost pretty badly. I conceded on Turn 3, much to his delight.
We'll be playing again tomorrow, but I think I'm going to check the errata on Grievous.
