X-wing Lists - Regional musings

With X-wing Regionals approaching in July in Auckland, I've just started to have a look at possible lists that I'll face and the one I'd take. Some IT warrior claimed that I was net listing with my usual squad but in reality I hadn't looked at the net for lists and probably was a little lacking on current meta due to it. So to better round out my strat I went and did a little study on lists from reliable sources. Here's a few things I found which might be helpful for you guys too.

The classic wave1 Tie swarms are still very strong even at current meta. I'd expect to see them quite a bit leading up to Regionals.

Ordinance heavy Bombers could be a go to. With ever more agile ships this won't be the list of choice.

The combo of Fat large ship and Fast agile hitter is still very strong and here's some examples.

The Decimator and Phantom combo is the hardest imho.
Lots of hp and hits very hard.

I would like to try this one out but i'm a little hesitant as you are bound to give away points.

 Yup there's my favourite pilot in this list. Might just adjust this list a little for my game play.

 This is my favourite combo. I'd need to borrow a Deci from someone.

If you are happy to share your thoughts that would be fantastic. 
This years Regionals will be my first and I'm pretty new to the serious competitive side of X-wing.
Keen as to fire up the laser cannons.

ANZAC Diorama - Wellington War Memorial Museum

I managed a trip to Wellington to grab a look at the ANZAC diorama displayed at the Wellington War Memorial Museum.This is a combined work contributed by all the hobby enthusiast around the New Zealand including our own 'Auckland City Guard Club', Here. The final finishing touches was done by the 'Kapiti Wargaming Club', Here. I am very honored to have also contributed and taken part in the project.

It was a magnificent display and I thoroughly recommend the visit. Well thought out with a beautiful design throughout. The display has been well documented on T.V, Print media and the net. I was pretty awe struck and I'lll let the pictures to follow to do the talking.

The exhibition included some superb coloured historic photo's from the time and many Weta Studio displays. This is just a small sampling. The Museum is open late on a Wednesday so I suggest you make a trip.
