for Imperium i really hope for more Tie variants and why so much ate for EU tie variants ?? or ships ?

 

well tie vanguard for more swarming possibilities 2/3/2/0 for example

 

or the Tie Aggressor with the 360degree back turret its a fighter with a co-pilot seat and much more ties !!

 

rebels i dont know so much of but we all need some new factions. Republic KUS Pirates and Planetary defense forces think of naboo fighters !!


Imperium: 7 Tie Fighter, 3 Tie Advanced, 12 Tie Interceptors (4 aces boxes included) 3 Tie Bomber and 3 fire sprays, 1 Tie Defender, 2 Tie Phantom, 1 Lambda Shuttle, 1 V49 Decimator
Rebels:  1 B-wing, 1 Z-95, 2 Hwk290,
Pirates: 3 Firesprays, 3 Y- Wings, 7 z-95, 2 HWK 290

I think there are a few options to give us a 180 D firing arc. I'm surprised it isn't in the game at this moment.

I'd love to see Wave 5 introduce a third faction. There are enough pirates, smugglers, and bounty hunters in the Star Wars Universe to make a Mercenary faction. This faction would be able to be included in both Rebel and Empire lists. Here's how it could be done:

 

Wave 5 ships could be the CloakShape Fighter, Cutlass-9 Patrol Fighter, StarViper Heavy Fighter, and a (big) Ghtroc 720.

 

Follow up a Wave 5.5, Mercenary Aces. Give us a repaint of the Z-95, but more importantly give us new merc pilots for the existing Z-95, HWK-290, YT-1300, and Firespray. This has the added bonus of allowing a few "fixes" to the HWK-290 so it sees some more table time.

 

On a semi-related note, I'm hoping for a Wave 4.5, Rebel Aces, where we get Corran Horn's green X-wing and another A-wing. The A-wing could use a little love like the TIE interceptor is getting in the Imperial Aces set.

 Looks like the Valkyrie shuttle from Dances with Wolves errrr.... I mean Avatar.

Pretty sure its a Mig.

 

 

Nah the Russians got better things to than get shot at by E-Wings, like Hosting the coolest Winter Olympics =]

Now that I think of it I would love to see the Shadow Droid be in this next wave.   It would come with only one card skill level 8-9 and its special abilities would be stressless movement and the ability to use any imperial pilots abilities in this game just add half the price of the pilot it is copying to its own.  Maybe also get a free evade tolken for every enemy targetlocking it.  Its action bar would be a TIE Interceptors and it would have the fireing ark like Fetts ship.

 

This ship is meant to be very pricey lol


May the Holy Trinity be with you and give you peace.

I know what I'd LIKE:

A YT-2400 and Howlrunner for the Rebels.

A Skipray Blastboat and Imperial V-Wing for the Imperials.

WAVE 5??

 

With wave 4 we will get all "The End Of The Food Chain"-Fighters already.

 

Leaving the TIE Avenger, the Gunboat, the Missile Boat, several Bounty Hunters, several Frighter/Smugglers/Freelancers ...

 

 

And of course The Tie Hunter, and Uglies, and ground units - come on imperial walkers and snow speeders!

Empire - Assault Gunboat and Tie Droid.

Rebellion - Outrider and... really not sure. :)   But I have no doubts about the Outrider.

 

Oohh - do you know something we dont?

I'm convinced that Hexis is right though - we're gonna see the E-wok glider :D

Feh. The Outrider is just an expy for the Millenium Falcon. Model-swap with the Outer Rim Smuggler and you basically have the same ship. Dash is pretty much the not-Han whenever you need Han Solo so...

 

I'm a fan of standard Imperial Equipment so I really have my hopes on the Assault Gunboat. Fluffwise we have only three hyperspace capable starfighters for the Empire and it would be nice to have some medium fighters for the empire that I could drop into custom scenario as reinforcements. Gunboats were often the case, and were actually capable of dogfights instead of wallowing about like the Skiprays.

 

But being that fan of standard Imperial equipment I would desire FFG not to waste energy or effort on the Bounty Hunter ships unless they were scraping the bottom of the barrel. I would rather see the scary Delta-class JV-7 Escort Shuttles from TIE Fighter before any of the bounty hunter ships myself.

 

For the rebellion I think T-Wings are a little redundant in the face of A-Wings but I'm open to surprises. The R-41 would be something between a Y-Wing and X-Wing and I'd expect resiliency and a cheap cannon carrier, ideal for autoblasters/Ion cannons just like the Y-wing is pretty much used for the turret.

 

My hopes on a rebel Baudo are for something like a speedy oversized HWK-290 that can actually survive being shot at.

What I would like to see is the Tie Aggressor from SWG for his back turret, which would be the first time we see it on a fighter ship.

 

What would be even better is an Imperial ship with a 360 turret, since as of right now, rebels have three kind of ship that can have a 360 turret vs zero for the Empire. They need some love too.

 

Other than that, YT-2400 would be cool since I like the design; but it's more the collector talking than the player, since I don't really see what it can bring to the table that the YT-1300 can't already... Other than a fourth rebel ship with a 360 turret...  <_<

 

Like a lot of people, I would like to eventually see clone wars ship, but for a seperate game. I hated the prequels, but really liked the cartoon, so I made peace with the clone wars era.

 

Speaking of cartoon, Star Wars Rebel start to air next fall I think, so maybe we'll get a wave 5 preview there before the new trilogy start.


I'm a french native player so sometimes, some expressions or meanings might be lost in translation. I mean no disrespect.

An imperial ship with a turret would be nice - but at the same time, I like keeping some 'clear water' between the two factions.

 

The ships which jump out at me are the missile gunboat, skipray, K-wing. Plus an imperial "small capital ship" to match the transport/corvette.

I like the new TIEs, but I'd really like to see the good guys finally get something different like:

 

Belbullab-22 (http://starwars.wiki...-22_starfighter)

V-19 Torrent starfighter (http://starwars.wiki...ent_starfighter)

STC003 Starcrasher (http://starwars.wiki...003_Starcrasher)

 

Yes, it's time to wipe the law breaking rebel scum from the galaxy!

 

Almost forgot this one!!

 

Fury-class starfighter (http://starwars.wiki...ass_starfighter)

I don't know about Wave 5, but I would be surprised if we don't get ships from the upcoming Rebels cartoon sooner as opposed to later. It's going to be more or less the right era -- as much as the E-Wing anyway -- and should be a good source of new material.

 

The VCX-100 and the just revealed in toy format curved wing TIE Advanced used by the Inquisitor both seem to be likely additions.

 

There are some cool looking prequel ships I'd like to see "repurposed" by the Rebellion, specifically the ARC-170 and V-Wing. Really though, so long as they fit the aesthetic of the films, I'd be happy to add them to my fleet. Which means I'm pretty likely to give the K-Wing or the Virago a pass if either one ever rears its ugly head.

I disagre, for one it is too new, and there are many ships they can still pull from the EU, and secondly, if the show flops, they wont want association with it... just because it's new doesnt make it a good source for ships... though, I will say that if FFG is still making this game when the new movie comes out, im sure there will be something from there as long as it does fairly well at the box office

There are some really nice prequel fighters...The problem is how to fit them in.

 

Would love to see the ARC for example.

Except the designers have explicitly stated we will not ever get prequel ships and that is something I am extremely grateful for.

Personally, I'd really like to see the Skipray Blastboat and the Chiss Clawcraft.

Both of those are so dope.

Don't care what the rebels get, but I'd really prefer not to see the 2400.
