Now that I received my wave IV shps, I'm trying to sort out a couple decent builds involving Defenders and Phantoms.

Yesterday night I gave Echo a first try and despite all the wrong manouvres (I made a terrible mess with cloack and decloack) I won against BBEZZ...maybe thanks to Howlrunner, 3 Ties and swarm tactics, joining Echo (VI+ACD) on the table.


As you can imagine, after giving Echo a chance, now I desperately want to try Defenders. I've came up with this build in order to see if three ships can stand in front of rebels. 


Naked Defender x2 (60)

Bounty Hunter + HLC (40)


No tactics or sophisticated manouvres. Just go straight in the middle of the field, then pass through your opponent's ships and take advantage with the white koiogran and the rear fire arc of the firespray. Could it work?


All critics are welcome (even the ones concerning my english...I'm italian).

I wasn't impressed with the Delta. PS1 is a genuine hindrance.

Ciao uopo! Il tuo inglese è bene!


That looks like a decent build to me. I ran 2x Delta's with Stealth Device and a Bounty Hunter to good effect. The Delta's get a bit more defense from the 4 green dice. But I like the HLC on the Bounty Hunter, I will have to give it a try!

Imperial - 5 TIE Fighters, 3 Intercepters, 3 Phantoms, 2 Defenders, 2 Firesprays, 1 Lambda, 1 Advanced, 1 Bomber

Rebel - 4 X-Wings, 4 Z-95's, 3 E-Wings, 2 YT-1300's, 2 B-Wings, 1 Y-Wing, 1 A-Wing, 1 HWK, 1 Rebel Transport

I would rather have the HLC on one of the Defenders. Of course he'll probably target it first. But I think you'll get more firing opputunity with it on a Defender. 75% of the shots I take with a FS are from its rear arc.

I'd put the heavy laser cannon on a defender rather than a Firespray. The defender is much better at keeping targets in the primary during arc than the Firespray.

killed a phantom 2 defender build good to joust with if you want to be lazy

but it went down in flames aginst IPM as most lists can

My lists are based on optimisim and my strategy is luck. Green dice are the enemy but I'm always flying casual
