Hmm.. I tend to do this quite often..
4 X wings (rooks) - works out great. Not game breaking good / definately a solid list though.either 4 rooks with shields or torps. I usually take one with r2d2. I've even ran 4 reds before as well. This has a few dedicated threads on it. I like both the torp list and shield version. People usually tend to go with the shields aparently as torps are not well liked even though it's a decent alpha strike. Other people on the forums have said they tried engine upgrades and even stealth devices (haven't tried either of those yet).
5 Y wings (golds) - An odd list. You'd be surprised how well this does, really a tank list (40 hp). Not the greatest amount of fire power and probably won't be winning any tournies but holds it's own. I choose 2 ion turrets for the remaining 10 points. If you scour the old battle report threads from some regionals you'll se it actually placed in the top 4 a few times. Do not recall the players name..
Never ran all b's or a's yet. I'm wanting to try this once aces comes out. I'll probably be short on retrofits though (i think only 2 come with each ace set).
6 A wings (protos / greens) - Still working out the details. 6 protos comes to 90 points.. leaves 10 for upgrades. I was thinking either 3 SD's or turning two into greens with outmaneuver or predator. Could even upgrade one to a named. Tycho is one point out of reach though.
I'm also guessing all z's might pop up soon. I only have 2 95's so that won't be happening from me. I have 5 x's (to many to fit in), 5 y wings and 4 a wings (going to pick up two ace packs putting me at 6 a wings).
I'm playing imperials (uncommon for me) this thursday and am going to run 6 black squadrons..
6 Tie Fighters (blacks) - running two with outmaneuver / 2 with opportunist and 2 with veteran instincts. Might swap around upgrades still like using predator instead of opportunist or whatnot.. i've even thought about using wingman with opportunist as well.. we'll see / should be a fun game regardless.
