  1. I assume you mean 3 x bandits because that list is 110 points. I'd probably upgrade 2 of the bandits to Talas with the spare 2 points, just because they are better versus other likely filler ships and initiative is largely meaningless. Other than that I think it's an effective counter to falcons and has potential versus phantoms. I think Rebs have to shift towards 5 ship builds, 2 heavies and 3 scrubs. 2 B's 2 Y's still works ok though. Whoops. Fat fingered. Yep. 3. They're bandits because I sometimes swap out FCS for Advanced Sensors. I like them all the same pilot skill so I can choose who's going first or last, so I never upgrade anyone when I have the two extra points.
  2. I've been having some fun/luck with B-wing + FCS + HLC x2 Bandit z95 x4 Block/deny actions with the Z's while keeping the B's in range 2-3 for the HLC damage.
  3. I saw that when I ordered my 1374. I wonder if people buying it for its intended purpose look at that and go "what the hell is an x-wing miniature?"
  4. I plan on going. I don't plan on winning much, but it'll be hard to live this close and NOT go.
  5. That Wild Kaarde looks like a severed robot foot, or an overly complicated handheld vacuum cleaner...
  6. Haha. Thanks. I haven't been at a computer all day.
  7. I vote for Applied Perspective. Great looking and functional stuff. They come with brown paper on it that covers all but the numbers. It's handy if you want to paint the numbers and arrows so they stand out a little. Here are my opaque blue movement templates and my fluorescent orange range rulers. EDIT: Sorry. I can't figure out how to post pictures... It shouldn't be this hard. It just keeps saying "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community." I'm just trying to link a picture from Flickr. http://flic.kr/p/owU8yM
  8. They mistakenly reference a 360 degree firing arc.

    I suck at X-wing.

    I was just talking to one of the local guys about it. When I was new (just two months ago...) I looked into it and it seemed very overwhelming and confusing for a new guy. I need to look at it again because I'd have more time to do something like that. It might not be ideal, but it would be better than not playing.

    Yeah. It's more about my schedule than anything else. The chances I do have to get out are during tournaments. It just kind of works out that way. I do get in the odd casual game now and then, but not as often as I'd like.

    I guess I wasn't really sure what the ratio of wins to losses should be at this point. I would have hoped for more wins, but I'm not opposed to learning and paying my dues. The majority of the games I'm able to get in are actually at tournaments, so while most of the guys are pretty cool about playing with new people, the environment is a little less forgiving. Everyone is there to win. I'll still get some reminders and pointers after a match. Everyone in the area seems to be an X-wing pro, but they're all really cool when it comes to new players.

    Yep. FFG. Saturday is my birthday, so hopefully I can get at least one win for a gift. The only game I won was using the first list. I think I only lost Corran once. I know he's a huge point cost, but he worked out great with R2. I really like the e-wing. It's one of those "do I play what I like or what might have a chance?" things. That being said, the B is my favorite. I'd take gunner, but of the four or five times I've taken it, I never had to use it. It's one of those cards that everyone loves, but I've never had its ability kick in.

    Thanks for all the great advice everyone. We have a tournament this weekend so I think I'll fly something that a) I've flown before and b) something I like. Thinking about either Corran Horn, R2-D2, FCS VI? B-wing, HLC, AdSen Z95 x2 Or Roark, Moldy Crow, Blaster, recon spec Chewie, swarm Biggs (does R2-D2 make sense? He stays alive longer, but it's 4 points on a doomed ship) Or B-wing HLC x2 Z95 x 3
