So i had 2 games tonight at my semi local gaming store, Darksphere near waterloo, london :P

 

I was flying.

Bounty Hunter, rebel captive, seismic charge

Bounty Hunter, recon specialist, seismic charge

Omicron Shuttle, Darth Vader

 

First game was vs.
Bounty hunter, heavy laser cannon

5 academy tie pilots

 

The game ended with my wounded recon specialist bounty hunter killing his last tie. Darth did 2 crits, and died, but did distract my opponent. My firesprays managed to pin down his ships and I had a lovely dual drop of seismic charges (I think my opponent forgot I had them, so I felt a bit bad for using them), killing a tie, doing 1 damage to 2 more and 2 damage to his firespray, for stripping the last shield from one of my firesprays :D

top picks, deployment.

Middle, we tangle

bottom left, bottom firespray is his, boom!

bottom right, his tie avoids bumping my firespray by the smallest of margins

 

 

Second game was vs

Luke, swarm tactics

2 rookie pilots

Roark, ion cannon, chewbacca crew.

 

No pictures for this one, I forgot.

Nice guy, bit new to the game and did make quite a few movement mistakes. I did the same deployment, however my opponent set up opposit my firesprays. So I backed them off but kept the shuttle going forward, which then died for very little damage caused. One firespray's seismic charge destroyed a wounded x wing just before it would have blasted him at ps12 at range 1 with a focus, so I was rather glad about that. Luke was slippery, but shooting at my rebel captive firespray after k turning was a bad choice, lowering his firepower considerbly over several turns. Last shot of the game vs a wounded hwk at range 1, 2 hits 2 crits, boom :D Had both firesprays slightly wounded at the end.

 

While they weren't the most skilled opponents, I do really enjoy dual firesprays. I'm not sold on the shuttle, but I think thats due to lack of experience with it. I could swap for 2AP's, but I'd have to use them much better then I do. A shuttle is a nice big tempting target, and when it manages to dodge its all the funnier.

congrats. i like ur list. 

how did that rebel captive pan out for u?

did u wish it was a second recon specialist.

switching out the shuttle for 2 AP's would give u more options in terms of blocking and flanking attacks but i am a big fan of the shuttle. see my battle report for my recent Shuttle/BH squad. http://community.fan...c-chewie-squad/

Rebel captive was quite nice. I did wish it was a recon specialist a few times though.

Aye I enjoyed your report, nice list. Though I love dual firesprays.

I need more games :D

having varied threats is good too. getting ur opponent to go for one of ur ships on purpose can work, so can having more than one threat. depends on what u r trying to accomplish with ur squad.

 

dont give up on the shuttle - its a gr8 ship, perhaps the most underrated right now.

I will continue to use the shuttle as is. I did run the shuttle with engine upgrade, fire control system and gunner and 1 firespray with seismic, while the other was naked. And I didn't like the lack of upgrades on the firesprays. Having 2 seismic charges to put down is much better then 1 (which will always be on the wrong firespray).

 

I just need to plan my moves out, but even if all the shuttle does is get killed its absorbing fire that could go towards the sprays, and if not, well darth can sneak in a crit or 2.
