Thank you.  I'm glad you didn't stop.  Really looking forward to the painting episode.  I'm a newb to miniature gaming so my painting knowledge is nil.

I enjoyed this show greatly.

Future show idea would be to talk about which ships you like after wave 4 drops. You guys have a good bit of incite and happy birthday a couple days late. If I did not live across the pond I would have brought you a ship for your birthday.

Lol! I note that this podcast *also* discusses a certain type of strategy I'm fond of that might become more popular given the tournament rule changes....one that has also been the subject of a certain infamous thread round these parts!

And no, I'm not the one that posed the question in the podcast, though I note they didn't look upon it negatively.

And that's all I have to say on the matter! :-)

Yay I'm internet famous. It's not rebel swarm, it's Jim Blakley's rebel swarm.

People list all their ships down here and that is ridiculous.  When it comes down to it you need to list accomplishments whether it is tournaments or squad designs.  That said.  Top 8 at Worlds 2013 and creator of THE Rebel Swarm squad "Blakley's Rebel Swarm TM"

I like the avoidance strategy. I think it will really mix up the meta and give a rise to more diverse squads. I think there will be a period of dislike while people adjust but soon it will be the norm and just another strategy that you have to build your list to face. On a 3'x3' table there is only so much running away you can do

Which is why instead of a full-on avoidance you go for an opportunistic build. You run and dodge arcs etc but still shoot when you have the opportunity.
Imperial: 5 TIE/ln, 1 TIE/adv, 5 TIE/in, 1 TIE/sa, 2 TIE/d, 1 TIE/ph, 1 Firespray-31, 1 Lambda
Rebel: 3 X-wing, 1 Y-wing, 2 A-wing, 2 B-wing, 1 E-wing, 2 Z-95, 1 HWK-290, 1 YT-1300

Yep, and on the flip side you build a squad that can react to someone who plays that game.
