Anyone tried running a HWK in a purely support role, specifically Jan Ors?
I was thinking about this squad:
Jan + Swarm
ORS + APLs
2 x Blue Bs
Jans extra dice and boost to PS8 is pretty valuable even though she herself contributes nothing to the attack. Gives my opponent a dilemma, Go for Jan or the fighters/freighter?
If they go for Jan she will be at range 3 and the hardest to hit, fulfilling a Biggs type role keeping the shots off the main fleet. Go for the others and you have a lot of hull/shield to chew through whilst being pounded with the extra dice at PS8.
Not a tournament level list but I think it could be effective, and interesting in the decision it gives your opponent.
You could sub the blues for rookies and do something with the 2 points, but I'm rather averse to flying Xs for some reason! Also the ORS could be subbed for another fighters, but I like the idea of having it upfront fouling attack lines and hopefully causing trouble with its APLs
Let me know if you've tried something similar.
