I've got a couple of those DX-9 from Shapeways too, and am also planning on converting some TIE Bombers into TIE Boarding Craft.
How do you use your DX9s?
Here are our house rules for boarding:
DX9 starts at the board edge with other friendly ships and must maneuver into place.
Step 1: DX9 base must be completely covering the 2D ship to be boarded. Any part of the ship counts, except the engines.
This turn the DX9 may use its action to latch onto the target ship. It may still take damage this round.
Step 2: DX9 remains in place on the target ship. Uses action to cut through the target ship's hull. Once the cutting begins, the rebels do not want to dislodge the DX9 for fear of decompressing the capital ship. Their best bet is to defeat the boarding party on the ship.
Step 3: Troops begin boarding.
We will probably play this scenario on Friday with 120+ flight lists and an imp boarding party with Vader to capture Leia and a Bothan diplomat.
Rebel victory: Imp boarding party is repulsed or destroyed. Imp fighters destroyed.
Imp victory: Leia captured. Capital ship engines disabled.
