Just thought this would be a good thread to see what people say.

 

My plan right now is

 

2x E-wing

2x Z-95 (this could easily bump to 4 if the ship performs well)

2x TIE Defender

2x TIE Phantom

 

For an idea of where I'm coming from my collection is:

 

1xCore

 

3x X-wing Expansion

2x Y-wing Expansion

2x A-wing Expansion

3x B-wing Expansion

1 Falcon

1 HWK

 

3x TIE Expansion

3x TIE Int

1x Aces

2x TIE Advanced

3x TIE Bomber

2x Firespray

1x Shuttle

 

I also plan to get one of each huge ships.

 

How about everyone else?

4 of each.  My collection supports myself, my wife, and also whomever I might be teaching to play at the time.

My instinct is to get 3 defenders and e-wings, 4 phantoms, and 4 (or more) Z-95s

 

I have consistently been known to buy too many ships in pursuit of theoretical specialized lists, but I am somewhat considering dialing it back this time around and getting 2 E-wings and phantoms.  Jury is still out on the Z-95, but 3 seems like the minimum there.  I have been waiting for defenders forever so that's a guaranteed 3, although 2 (or even just one) is probably the smart number

 

Either way, I'm not putting in my preorder until I get a bit more information.  My three HWKs were a lesson not to jump the gun without more information.  Those blaster turrets did not quite pan out like I had hoped...

My general go to order is three of a small base, two of a large base, I plan on getting one of each huge ship once they come out. Only exception so far has been my five tie fighters. Don't see any reason to change now ;)

x2 phantoms, x 2 defenders, at least. I may get some z 95's as I don't mind playing swarm with rebels somewhat and they seem to perhaps be nice with A wings. I should get a couple E wings just, because. Though I don't see picking up the rebel ships right out of the gate. I'll pre order the imperial, and pick up the other ships as I feel it.

I'm looking at:

 

4 Z-95

3 E-wings

3 Defenders

3 Phantoms

 

Things might change, but I like having my small ships in multiples of 3 or 4. How many Defenders I get will ultimately be determined by how popular Epic play is in my area. The Phantom is likely the one I will put off on getting my "full set" of.

It depends entirely on how much they cost (in dollars).
At a minimum, one of each, to get used to how they fly.

2 Z95s

1-2 of each of the others. Haven't fully made up my mind yet. But my brother and i each have our own sets and we play 95% against each other. So he will match whatever i order and we have agreed to "share" ships. We almost exclusively play Rebel vs Empire so its pretty easy for us to let each other borrow whatever the other needs. We thus  double our squad options wthout doubling our cost.

 

P.S. If there are any ships that i just fall in love with and need more of I will purchase as needed

I'll probably start with 2 of each, with the possibility of adding a third Defender because I love the defender.

Come on guys, I think the real answer to this question is: Too Many.

 

Because we love new toys and new ships. And if I PLAN to buy too many ships, I won't be disappointed after I DO buy too many.

Well, I have enough rebels to field almost any 100 point squad (missing a 5th A wing, a 5th Y wing, and a 3rd ORS).  As for imps, I have 9 LN, 2 x1, 2 (soon to be 4) IN, 3 SA, 1 FS (soon to be 2), 1 Lamdba (soon to be 2).  Since I don't play them as often, I don't have enough to field every squad with them, actually, I haven't played with any of my wave3 stuff yet =/.  

 

So, with that in mind, I'll probably pick up 2 Defenders, 2-3 Phantoms, 3 E wings, and gosh I don't know how many Z-95's.  Probably start with 4, likely quickly increase that to 6, and might end up with 8...  A lot of the local stores give out store credit to go along with doing well in tourneys (or as a door prize).  I might save the last 4 Z-95's for that.

I'm sure there will be reason enough to pick up all of them.
