  1. The photo is from the GAMA retailers convention ongoing in Las Vegas right now! They always preview the upcoming releases before GenCon
  2. I agree the Lambda is not doing stellar but I am commited to not running the standard tourney kill list. Swarms, falcon, double firespray etc........ The game gets boring at tournaments when you can predict how the whole thing goes I think. I'd rather go 3-1 and have a good time than win the whole thing with a cookie cutter list. The next tourney staple list is out there we just have to find it! Tri Lamb! What do you use?
  3. I think this may work out considering my local metagame of lots of lower PS ships and lots of rerolls plus I'm getting good at playing bumper cars/action denial. OGP + Vader + APL OGP + FCS + Gunner + Engine Upgrade Dark Curse OSP x 2 Think Vader lambda will clog and bump (do crit thing obviously), Buzzsaw will hunt from one flank and ties from the other (try to set up a kill box in the center with Vader lambda moving slow). Not sure about the APL but wished I had them when I was playing with the BH last weekend.
  4. Maybe this as list #3: OGP + Vader BH + Recon Spec 2 x Avenger Sq Pilots
  5. Hi All, Played the shuttle for the first time yesterday at store championships for a more fun list (I own the store so I didn't want to really win just play) and I went 3-1 and got 5th! Ran a buzzsaw version with a basic bounty hunter + HLC + recon spec. and 2 academy ties. Had a hard time with 3 B wings with all with FCS + HLC. Anyway, another Store Championships are in a couple weeks at another store and I was thinking about this: OGP + FCS + gunner + EU Dark Curse 4 x OSP Lots of PS2 & PS3 lists here so I wanted to shoot sooner. Thought of this option as well: Col Jendon + FCS + Gunner + WE + EU Gamma Sq Pilot + Concussion 2 x OSP 1 x Academy Any thoughts?
  6. Here is the Store Championship result for Trilogy Games in Calgary Alberta Canada March 15th Winner: Cameron Webber Rebels Dutch Vander + Ion Cannon Turret Blue Squadron Pilot + Heavy Laser Cannon Rookie + R2 Astromech Rookie
  7. This may sound stupid, and I am considering dropping my usual 4 ties for a shuttle and 2 ties for store championship, how do you fly this one? Tactically not the ships specifically. Ties flank or do they cover Krassis? Lambda just fly for the middle and keep turning? Ties delay and bat clean up or fly aggressive first or in & out after Lambda & Firespray attacks?
  8. Figured as much but as the ships will be in the hands of the players, and there isn't too much in the way of rules surrounding this release and its impact on tournament play, thought the question was valid. As I run the store that hosts these events, they actually haven't addressed this at all!
  9. Hi Everyone, Just a quick question maybe? Will the ships won at the Assault at Imdaar Alpha be tournament legal? I have a Regionals to attend on June 21 after this event and was wondering if they would be in the field or if I could field one (assuming I win one!)?
  10. Hi All, I need a little advice. I played in a store championship warm up last Monday (it was a holiday here) and I went 4-1 and won 3rd place. I ran this: Kath Scarlet + Mercenary Copilot + Seismic Charges + Expert Handling Howlrunner + Swarm Tactics Academy Pilot x 3 100 points Beat a 4 bomber list with missiles + proton bombs, 2 YT-1300 list, XXYHawk list, mini swarm with Soontir. Lost to to Doomshuttle + 2 named ties + ties swarmish list (just barely). Anyway, since I have been thinking/playing with my bombers again and have considered 2 other lists: (played both versions here once and won both times if that matters.....) 1. Krassis + Autoblaster + WE Howlrunner + Swarm tactics Academy Pilot x 3 100 points up close and personal type list 2. Kath Scarlet + Mercenary Copilot + Seismic Charges + Expert Handling + Cluster Missiles Capt Jonas + Squad Leader + Seismic Charges Schimiatr Sq Pilot + Assault Missiles + Cluster Missiles 99 points Hit hard from far and then have Kath clean up The only other 2 lists around here are a BBYY list and a XXBY list both of which got 1st and 2nd in that event! Event had 24 players by the way. Thoughts? Keep the original? Go with one of the new ones? Changes to any list that would make better? Just need a couple tweaks here I think. Just want a solid fun list that might do well this week and at Store Championships mid-March Thanks in advance! Chris
  11. How about this list for the Empire: Capt Jonas + Squad leader + Seismic Charges - 26pts Krassis + HLC + Seismic Charges + Mercenary Copiliot - 47pts Scimitar Sq. Pilot + Assault Missiles + Cluster Missiles + Seismic Charges - 27pts Total 100pts Been wanting to try this myself for a bit but was wondering if it is a little light on the ships for an empire list?

  15. Seems like a way to make more money with less effort to me! The game system itself has been around in part since the days of Wings of War. FFG has made it amazing. Wizkids bought it from them as a game system and now wants to use it again to sell their crappy minis! I agree FFG minis are by far superior to Wizkids. It feels like they are using the D&D brand to come up with a bastardized version of Warhammer or D&D itself? The fact of the matter is, the game system works for what it has been designed to do not to move people and dragons! WizKids leave this idea alone and find another way to sell your plastic badly painted minis! If I were an Attack Wing player I would worry about this idea being the new shiney as already stated. Attack Wing as the game is a good one, but it is really X Wing anyway with some tweaks. My 2 cents.....
