Howlrunner

11 Academy TIE

Swarms? Really? (Although, shouldn't a shuttle swarm be called a herd?)

You need engine upgrade to make the lambda a threatening beast. If you want to swarm shuttles try:

 

6x Omicron Group Pilot + Engine Upgrade

 

Now, if you want to run five of these beasties in a herd, my recommendations would be:

 

5x Omicron Group Pilot + Gunner + Engine Upgrade

 

They won't be as potent as my standard doom shuttle.  You can fix that with this:

 

3x Omicron Group Pilot + FCS + Gunner + Engine Upgrade

Omicron Group Pilot + Gunner + Engine Upgrade

Omicron Group Pilot + Vader

I would be tempted to run a couple of these in with the mix, depending on your flying preferences:

 

Omicron + FCS + Engine Upgrade + Weapons Engineer + Ion Cannon (33pts)

 

Gives you a nice way to control traffic while you graze on your enemy, and I'm just a sucker for the FCS + Weapons Engineer combo

*quietly hides the fifth shuttle* Of course not. That would be silly.

So I just played at TShift (Emerald City Slaughter) this weekend here in the Seattle area and took 3rd place on Sunday with this 150 point build.  I made some missle changes based on the play but it is same otherwise.  I hope this helps.

 

Major Rhymer w/Swarm Tactics, 2 x Homing Missiles

Captain Jonus w/Swarm Tactics, 1 x Homing Missiles

Bounty Hunter w/Heavy Laser Cannon, Recon Specialist

Bounty Hunter w/Heavy Laser Cannon, Recon Specialist

 

I had a particular way I setup and piloted which worked to my advantage.  My only loss was in first round and it was a piloting error on my part.  My opponent came up to me after the tournament and told me if I wouldn't have made the mistake, I probably would have won.  This was my actual first tournament for any miniatures games as I am a CCG player but it was a lot of fun.  Plan to do some more.


Imperial - 2 x Shuttle, 2 x Firespray, 4 x Tie Bomber, 4 x Tie Interceptor, 1 x Tie Advanced, 5 x Tie Fighter

Rebel - 2 x Falcon, 4 x B-Wing, 2 x Hawk, 4 x Y-Wing, 2 x A-Wing, 4 x X-Wing

 

Pre-Ordered - 2 x Imperial Aces, 1 x Rebel Transport, 1 x Tantive IV

Well yes, I do have 5 shuttles. But one is a Hallmark. I do need to pick up 2 shuttles however as one had a glue mishap and I will need the 5th official model. Besides, I may need them for a convoy scenario!

We got in a few practice rounds of 150 points:

 

Game 1 my friend wanted to run his Imperial list against opposing Rebels so I just threw together a quick list.  He ran Vader, Howlrunner and some other random TIEs (total of 5), along with a bounty hunter.  I ran decked out Han, Ten, and Ibatism.  Han shot first and Howlrunner never had a chance to fire or bestow 1 re-roll to her comrades.

Death of a bounty hunter while Vader watched on helpless.  I did not lose a single ship this round!

 

Round 2 was swarm vs swarm.  My friend ran his same list as above against my modified 8 swarm list:  All the name TIE pilots with stealth (squad leader on Howlrunner and expose on Mithel), plus a few extra red shirts.

Another bad day for that bounty hunter!

I won this one again with Vader going down last.  He took one TIE out with him leaving me 4 TIE left.

 

I still need to try out the 12 TIW swarm :)

That looks insanely fun to play!

Oh well, tournament has been reset to 100 points and also has a runner up 100 point tournament.  Dang, was looking forward to either 12 TIE or 5 Lambda!  Though I'm still tempted to run the 4 Omicrons in the pre-tourney.

...and that's why anyone wanting to meta swarm lists, which are bound to show up in tournaments, should always take assault missiles..any way they can.

I ran a 12 TIE swarm (Howlrunner + 11 Academy) yesterday, that lasted 3 turns.  I'm surprised how many do not attempt the assault missile alpha strike.  I carried off a alpha vs a squadron of 4 TIE bombers the other day, it was beautiful.  I had 6 Proto Awings all with assault missiles.

2x2x2 Rebel scum vs 12 TIE swarm

This game lasted 3 turns.  Rebs killed nothing the first round and 2 TIE on the second round.  That was it.
