First let me say I haven't tried this out yet (as I only have 3 Y-wings), but has anyone out there tried to play with 5 Y-wings? Here's what I'm thinking:
5 Gold Squadron pilots=90 pts, and for the other 10 I'd go with R2D2, Ion Cannon, and R2 Astromech
I mean, yes, I know offensively it wouldn't do much, but you're looking at 40 hits to take this squad out, and that's without R2D2 replenishing shields. Do you know how long it would take to get 40+ hits? I guess that's the downfall of this build. You're looking at a VERY long game.
Mainly I'm just tossing around squad-building ideas in my head, and I find this build intriguing. Not that I'll ever play it, I just think it could last a while vs a TIE swarm or something, and if I brought it to a tournament , the looks I would get. Like I'm crazy…yet genius…
