I always keep coming back to the Doom Shuttle. Don't know why, but it's just an amazing setup and very reliable for me.

Post pilot setups (not lists) that you continually use based on your style.

Omicron Group Pilot+Darth Vader

Hobbie in an interceptor.
i.e, R2-d6, push the limit, engine upgrade + optional advanced torps.

Generally, you can engage with tl+boost or focus! and completely clear the stress... (You can spend a tl to reroll 0 dice!)
It means he can ptl, and recover. And then use his whole dial. As long as he can shoot, it's better than an r2 unit

I haven't been playing long enough to have a standby but wedge with engine upgrades makes its way into most of my rebel lists. I've also been running a fair amount of Cracken+VI+cluster missiles as most of my local game store runs big ships.

Hobbie + R3-A2

 

I have never flown Hobbie without R3-A2 and have never kitted out any ship other than Hobbie with R3-A2.

 

Any Y-Wing or HWK with a turret.

 

I can't stand the thought of flying either of those ships without a turret, usually Ion Cannon Turret though I do occasionally run blaster turret on HWK with RecSpec

 

Interceptors with PTL

 

I so very much want to play with Kir Kanos and Lt Lorrir but can bring myself to do so without PTL, call it a crutch if you will But I can't justify the points in an interceptor without 2 actions.

 

Naked Biggs

 

Have never bothered spending points on Biggs, quite often run DTF on an adjacent ship to keep him alive a bit longer but too often when I do splash out for upgrades on him he goes down early and doesn’t gain value from the points spent.

 

I have once played R4-D6 on Biggs but I knew I was going to be playing against a 3 x dagger Sqaudron + HLC + FCS list.

Falcon + Engine upgrade.

You don't need to strip your miniatures, painting over is fine. No, there should not be a fourth faction, three is the magic number for countering flavor lists and to break up faction distribution. Someone else has likely thought up and posted your amazing new build, so you don't need to stroke your ego when reposting it. The prequels sucked and so would a game based on it. YES, there should be a Custom Forum for terrain and repaints! Moving on...

Kyle Katarn with blaster turret, recon spec., moldy crow. 

Dutch Vander with blaster turret.

 

Kyle focuses, gets 2 focus, passes 1 to Dutch. Dutch target locks and allows Kyle to target lock.  allowing both to have focus and target lock in 360 degrees.

 

Just add Chewbacca to complete the squad of 360 degrees of death.

Vader+Squad Leader. Because he's iconic.
Boba Fett with Seismic Charge...same reason.
Wish there were more Imperial iconic pilots... :D

Other than that any ship with 3AD and Systems usually gets Fire Control System.

Imp: 4xSpace Cows, 3xLn, 2xPhantom, 2xInt, 1xAdv, 1xB, 2xDefender, 1xFirespray
Rep: 2xB, 1xX,1xZ-95, 2xE, 1xYT, 1xCR

Always looking for more players in Vegas... :D

Rexler Brath + HLC + Predator

Soontir Fel + RGT + Shield + TC + PtL

Omicron Group Pilot + Advanced Sensors + Ion Cannon + Tactician + Weapons Engineer + APL + ST-321 (Vessery's Boy right here)

You know, if you put Garvin in there too then he can pass a focus back to Kyle so that you still get the effect of the blaster turret (one to shoot, one to modify) that one normally gets while soloing their tokens .

Han + Expert Handling + Falcon + Engine Upgrade + C3PO + Gunner has been my go-to combination lately. It chews up the Wave 4 meta pretty well.
