My gaming group is starting a league to play this summer and our first session is coming up.  We are stepping up in points over the summer starting with 35 for the first session.  I have narrowed it down to

Soontir Fel - PTL - Stealth

Horton Salm - R5-K6 - PT - PT

I just can't decide which is better.  They are on opposite ends of the spectrum!


Rebel - (4)X-Wing (5)Y (5)A (4)B (3)E (6)HWK-290 (8)Z-95 Headhunter (3)YT-1300 (3) 2400 (2)GR-75 (1)CR-90

Empire - (8)TIE Fighter (4)Advanced (5)Interceptor (6)Bomber (3)Defender (4)Phantom (3)Firespray-31

              (4)Lambda-class Shuttle (4)Imperial Aces (2)VT-49 Decimator

SOONtir -  (6)Rebel Aces (6)Most Wanted (7)M3-A (4)StarViper (3)Aggressor

while fel is good you risk lossing him to 1 round of unlucky shooting,

with salem I would definetly say get an ion cannon turret on him, just to counter the chance of being out manouvered.

 

do you want a consistant list with salem or a puncher with a bit of fragility?

 

  I would suggest gold sqd engine upgrade, 2x proton torp and ion cannon….  this gives you some added manouverability on the y-wing when needed the 360 arc and still packs double torp for falcons and slaves…  alternatively, drop engine upgrade make yourself grey and take the r5-k6…

 

both of those 2 suggestions are 35pts.

I like Horton. R5-K6 isn't a droid I would tend to pick with him but with such low point totals you have a good chance of fighting in one on ones so it very well might be worth it with those double torps. I don't thing ion is a must have with this format, just be careful, clever, and look for the right time to k-turn. With two torps and horton's rerolls you should be able to wipe out most ships within 2-3 attacks.

Of course a 2 TIE build is nasty.

Dark Curse - Stealth

Backstabber

One to run interferance as the other gets 3 dice outside of the firing arc.


Rebel - (4)X-Wing (5)Y (5)A (4)B (3)E (6)HWK-290 (8)Z-95 Headhunter (3)YT-1300 (3) 2400 (2)GR-75 (1)CR-90

Empire - (8)TIE Fighter (4)Advanced (5)Interceptor (6)Bomber (3)Defender (4)Phantom (3)Firespray-31

              (4)Lambda-class Shuttle (4)Imperial Aces (2)VT-49 Decimator

SOONtir -  (6)Rebel Aces (6)Most Wanted (7)M3-A (4)StarViper (3)Aggressor
