So if we reduce all the small ships to 12 and the big ships to 6 except for the things that cost too much to fit 12 of in a 300-point game, we have:
12 TIE Fighters
And that would cost you, based on MSRP, if you buy five Core Sets and two TIE Fighter Expansions and four X-Wings Expansions (since you'll get five X-Wings in those Core Sets and three X-wings with those Rebel Transports), $3,035. Well that's more manageable =P
ummm what about mirror EPIC matches?
Personally I would suggest 1-2 of each small ship and 1 or each large ship... add as needed and able after playing with all the ships.
X-wings, Ties and Tie Interceptors are pretty good ships to get multiples off, the rest are sort of to taste imo.
The problem with getting 100 or x00 of each ship type like people were doing is the new "Aces" packs. I had bought 5 interceptors (and awings) using the 100 pt rule, now I have 7. How often did I run 5 interceptors... maybe once and now I have extra ships. I also bought 4 tie advances... huge waste not only of money but storage space... I sometimes play vader just cause I feel bad I bought 4.
So I would suggest to buy only 1 of everything at first then add as you play, like, need... I am sure they will release more repaint packs with new cards etc then you won't have wasted previous purchases.
