    problems of a heavy

    Lots' of Silhouette 2 vehicles have autoblasters or light repeating blasters.
  3. This is creative and intriguing. The issue remains: we have forfeited nearly half our IC (as we should, rather than continue to impose on the Consortium.) This was done with the understanding we would soon have a planet in what might be the wealthiest corner of the sector, evening out our sacrifice. I propose we revisit this agreement when we have finished capturing Zedron and can economically stand shoulder to shoulder with the other players in this war. Tron’di conditions will then be a little easier to swallow, and we are open to the 5th Sector making gains.

    Sure, empathy is a thing, so is creating mountains out of molehills. My point was that this is more a theoretical problem than a realistic one, since there are a myriad of choices available now. It would be a different story if 3/3 faction had unreleased ships but a fraction of them have a fraction of their ships unreleased. Of the 5 ships 2 have already been announced as in the pipe, 2 are bad at their current points, and 1 might make a difference. So I'm not ignorant of the plight, I just don't actually think it's that big a deal. I'd rather be a new player right now than at most points in 1.0, when there were also ship shortages (K-wings anyone?) When Soontir is on all the top tables and people can't get a hold of interceptor models I'll change my tune

    they usually have repeating blasters (I think), but you can mod any speeder to have an auto-blaster.

    Don't stock military speeders carry autoblasters? It probably doesn't weigh as much as a Harley, more like a 20mm canon on a tank.

    Kicking off republic hype

    Ahsoka has the Delta-7B configuration, so primary attack value 3. Anakin has Calibrated Laser Targeting so gets an added focus result if he can get bulls-eye. All looks fun. I'm wondering whether Ahsoka may not be the best choice for Delta-7B. I think her primary function might be to support a couple of other hard hitting Jedi. How about this? Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Ahsoka Tano - 51 •Ahsoka Tano - “Snips" (47) R2 Astromech (4) Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Anakin Skywalker - 82 •Anakin Skywalker - Hero of the Republic (60) R2 Astromech (4) Delta-7B (18) Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Luminara Unduli - 64 •Luminara Unduli - Wise Protector (44) R2 Astromech (4) Delta-7B (16) Total: 197/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder

    Ah you are correct.

    I was the one who wanted to wield without the mech suit in the first place. It just seems easier and better to play as a mech driver. You become way tougher and just as easy to hit most people. (unless they are silhouette 0)

    Ashoka has 3 here I believe, and Anakin has the bullseye bonus, although I do think this is still a little offense light imo
  11. It's one Force Point total, plus any you use for Magnitude, Strength or Range upgrades.. That Control upgrade replaces the base effect when you use it.
  12. Any of the remaining Red/Rogue squadron guys: Jek Porkins, Dak Ralter, Hobbie Klivian, Tyree, Dutch, etc. No shortage of Red pilots for the good guys to mix in. For the Empire, Zuckuss and 4-LOM for sure. Gilad Palleon now that he's canon again.

    Some auto blasters are not that big I would think a good portion of the weight would be in the power supply.

    That is 2-8 ships for the entire squad, not just of one type. Nice try though.

    Getting into Anime or Iron Man territory. A Landmate in Appleseed comes to mind.
  16. @Bertie Wooster going forward the 5th SA may find itself treading on dangerous ground (hopefully not but the situation may escalate) what is the position of our Alliance? Will you remain our Allies even if the events of the next few turns drag the 5th SA into a major war?

    I thought about getting a mech suit with an auto-blaster on it and calling it a vehicle.

    New map announced.. Ewoks?!

    All of the box waves have been followed by blister waves which, themically (if not canonically), fill out the figures. I think there's a better than even chance that an Endor box will also be followed by another set of blisters even if its just a couple. Plus a campaign set fairly shortly before RotJ could legitimately include Ewoks (collecting intel on DS2/Endor defenses) and a guest appearance by Yoda somewhere between Luke's departure from Degobah in ESB and revisit in RotJ. ... or we may just get Caravan of Courage 😃

    Ok... then a 9-ship list with 8 Vulture Drones and Captain Sear it is! SUCK IT, TIE SWARMS!
  20. My apologies if this has already been asked and answered, but my searches have not been successful. This question could possibly apply to other powers, too, but Farsight is the one that I'm currently confused about. Question: If a PC wants to activate Farsight: Control "Spend FORCEPOINT to see through a single object at medium range as though it were transparent", how many pips total would that require the PC use? Would it be 2 total (to first activate the Basic Power and then the Control Upgrade), or would it be just 1 total (to activate just the Control upgrade)? Same question would apply to the other two similar Control upgrades: See Fine Details and See Microscopic Details.

    An Autoblaster is probably the volume and mass of a Harley Davidson motorcycle (the big ones). Is anyone going to lug that around?

    Hyperspace options expanded

    The ship ability to me is their maneuverability. But I’m an old band with Interceptors and Strikers, including generics. So I fly the Fang the same way. Daredevil Fenn is so fun to me. The few times I’ve flown it, I’ve felt the value. But I agree that trying to leverage the ship ability is a fools errand. It’s a useful ‘hope to not die’ ability though. And it has great linked actions.
  23. Their is no need to get snippy. I just happen to love thinking about new tech ideas but yes I’m very picky and I will stop now.

    Wade Piche, signed the loopin’ chewie world championship cardboard standup by proxy? (Works for FFGOP, he’s cool)

    2-8 is the limit per the FFG tournament rules. The app allows illegal lists to be saved, always has.
