Let's have a new one.  We have new information now: EU not canon, surely that make prequel ships more likely?

No citation, but I thought that FFG does not have license to prequel ships.

I keep hearing that, but have never seen anything that backs it up.

It doesn't actually make sense, why would the Star Wars license only include the OT movies? FFG said they wanted to stick to OT stuff, but the idea that the license only covers one set of movies just doesn't make sense logically.

Especially when you consider that they've included things that were see in Eps 1-3.

Did they definitely say they want to stick to OT ships? They've done EU ships.

Honestly, there was a thread like this recently, and you should find it if you look for it... we really don't need another.

As for prequel stuff.. word is, this is a game about the rebellion era, so no prequel ships should be used.. I heard that was an FFG comment...

I'd be surprised if we see any new EU models after the non-canon announcement.

Well more to the point they said they wanted to stick to "rebellion era" type ships. Which would include things like the Z-95, YT-2400, even the Tie Defender and Phantom. the E-Wing is pushing it a bit but looks enough like a rebellion era ship to cut it.

I don't remember where they said that, but it was in reference to them doing Prequel ships.

My speculation:

Assault Gunboat
Virago (built-in 1 K-turn)
Outrider
R-41 Starchaser(?)

Imperial Epic Ships (Storm Commando Escort Carrier + TIE Hunter, Stormtrooper transport + TIE Advanced)

New "aces" boxes: Mainstays of the Fleet
Imperial: TIE Fighter and TIE Bomber
Rebel: 2x Y-wing

Imperial: 5 TIE/ln, 1 TIE/adv, 5 TIE/in, 1 TIE/sa, 1 Firespray-31, 1 Lambda
Rebel: 3 X-wing, 1 Y-wing, 1 A-wing, 1 B-wing, 1 HWK-290, 1 YT-1300

Disney's done its best to bury the prequels. Prequel ships likely aren't happening and prequel factions would be majorly outmatched in the meta if they did. New ships'll be Rebel/NR or Imperial.
 

They've released five EU ships so far, the TIE defender, the Z-95, the HWK, the TIE phantom and the E-wing. All of these are EU mainstays except for the Phantom, which got made probably because they liked the cloaking mechanic and it's a thing of beauty. I think we have to remember that when speculating: we're after well-defined staples of EU here, those are the biggest probabilities.

That logic makes the YT-2400 an even better bet, actually, since the most recent edition of the OT includes an Outrider cameo--meaning it's canon even under the new rules.

Outrider is g-canon. It's visible in one of the reedited films, but I can't remember if its episode 1 or 4. 4 I think.

Edit: yep, episode 4, special edition.

I think we should all keep a close eye on Episode 7.  FFG would be smart to release things that try and ride that marketing wave.

who said its NOT canon? i mean seriously just because Lucas/Disney say something?? Cannon is what we the collective fans believe...   just saying i want it ALL prequels postquels and what ever else turns up...  however at the risk of mixing threads and going OT. I DON'T want ships that are hugely out of scale just because they are "Iconic" i like the fact the FFG has tried to keep things IN scale.. its one of the things i didn't like about attack wing and the old star fleet battles...

That's stupid.

They'll be between waves, like the Tantive and Transport.

Last I checked, Cannon was what we loaded on ships like the Firespray, B-wing, Lambda, and Defender.



. . . Oh, you mean canon.

Outsider did show up in the redone episode 4, as did the imperial landing craft, can't remember the name, but it would be an interesting addition.

Beyond that, there isn't much for rebels, though there are dozens of options for the imperials.

I think some of the main starfighters (naboo, jedi, arc-170,v-19, v-wing) would be interesting and mostly competitive. Though I think most would end p with only 2 attack dice...
