    Imperial Royal Guards Article Up

    Imperial = Emperor, Empire Royal = King, Kingdom ´Imperial royal guard’ doesn’t make a lot of sense... it has been bothering me for a while. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one having first world problems with my wargaming hobby :)!

    Thank you!

    pulling the strings

    Does a free move action given by "Pulling the strings" allow a unit of Royal Guard to perform a "Charge"?

    Deathrain & Co.

    I played a casual game this evening at my FLGS, and ran some new ships and upgrades I hadn’t tried yet. My list was probably not competitive, but I had a ton of fun. Here’s what I played : "Deathrain" — TIE Punisher 26 Advanced Sensors 3 Extra Munitions 2 Proton Bombs 5 Conner Net 4 Twin Ion Engine Mk. II 1 Ship Total: 41 "Omega Leader" — TIE/fo Fighter 21 Juke 2 Comm Relay 3 Hull Upgrade 3 Ship Total: 29 Black Squadron Pilot — TIE Fighter 14 Crack Shot 1 Ship Total: 15 Black Squadron Pilot — TIE Fighter 14 Crack Shot 1 Ship Total: 15 The Black Squadron Pilot with Crack shot (a well known combination by now) is great, it really helps getting that important hit through. Omega Leader was very annoying and hard to kill. An unmodified attack against 3 defence dice make him an unattractive target, enabling him to keep his evade token to trigger Juke. Deathrain was a lot of fun. I hit with two Proton Bombs (destroying one of my Black Squad pilots in the process…) and an enemy interceptor with a Conner Net. In the future, I will consider bringing Omega Leader and Crackshot Black Squad Pilots to tournaments.

    Kyle & X-Wings

    I agree, Wingman isn't the most satisfying choice. How about replacing Wingman with Cool Hand, so I can have a focus token to assign if I need to pull a red maneuver? This leaves me at 99 points for initiative or I can give an R2 astromech to the Rookie Pilot.

    Kyle & X-Wings

    I will be playing at a local tournament at the end of the month, and here's my potential list. I tried played with it a couple of times, and it wasn't too bad. The plan is to stick close to Biggs in the beginning, using Jan to give him an evade token. The Stressbot is there to help in case an ace or a large ship comes in sight. An alternative to Kyle Katarn could be "Dutch" Vander, who'll be handing target locks instead of focus/evade tokens. I only own one T-70, thus only one "Integrated Astromech". Thoughts & comments are welcome! =============================== Rebel List, FLGS Tournament Jan/2016 =============================== 100 points Rookie Pilot (21) Rookie Pilot (23) X-Wing (21), R3-A2 (2) Biggs Darklighter (26) X-Wing (25), R4-D6 (1), Integrated Astromech (0) Kyle Katarn (30) HWK-290 (21), Wingman (2), Ion Cannon Turret (5), Jan Ors (2) View: http://xwing-builder.co.uk/view/383620/rebels-flgs-tournament-jan2016

    New Player, Rebel List Feed Back

    I think that Poe and R5-P9 have good synergy. How about giving Nera a Fire Control System, to help fire that second Proton Torpedo? Downgrading the Talas to Bandits, or replacing the Cluster Missiles with Adv.Homing Missiles would give the two points needed to do that. In my opinion (I'm not an expert at list-building), it would be better to get rid of at least one Cluster Missile, to give an EPT to Poe (like Predator, which seems to work well with his pilot ability). Anyway, it's a good start! Still, the best way to know if a list is good/fun, is to try it in a game.

    Some more painted miniatures

    I used Citadel paints. The base layer is a mix of Mephiston Red, Mournfang Brown and a little bit of Abaddon Black. I then added a few darker spots of brown & black mix and then drybrushed a bit of Red/Brow/Screaming Skull mix. Finally, I smoothed everything with some Agrax Earthshade.
  11. Yes. If I didn't throw away the other ones by mistake ! I think the limit of two is also mentioned in the Rulebook (I have to check).
  12. After seeing so many talented and inspiring painters show their miniatures on this forum, I finally started to paint mine. For a start, here's the Mon Calamari scout from Return to Hoth expansion : The same miniature with a more dramatic lighting : Hopefully, more will come soon!
  13. He is limited to two recon tokens only.
  14. Yes! Here are the new items (first row is first tier items, etc.) : And the Rewards :
