  1. I'd rather have Jango Fett along with some jump-pack droids. Be nice to have a hero with some major mobility. Even if he died 20 minutes into the Clone Wars, he still participated and was a big part of the film, lol. Nice that the B1 upgrades gives you a unit card. Converting the spare heavy weapons from the starter and 1 or 2 B1 expansions should give you enough spare Droids to make a free squad.
  2. It's worse than that since Luke kissing Leia is cannon. lol.
  3. No more Firespray + Vader teamups. Those were my first games and probably the reason I got into this. When that Firespray expansion got released it was a big deal, by bro and I rushed home and fought Falcon vs Firespray games all night. I'm not very excited for a second edition that takes away the Slave-1 from Imperials and gives it to Ezra teams on the Rebel-ish side. In my head canon, Vader and Boba Fett were best pals that would fist-bump whenever they shot down an X-wing.
  4. Try something like: Control: (15 points) Commit 1 Force Die to grant Linked+1, or Autofire, to your weapon. Mastery: (15 points) Gain the Hawkback Swoop and Sarlac Sweep talents
  5. Well the Tracers are just afterthoughts anyway. I'm mostly an Imperial player that just happens to have lots of scum because I wanted the upgrade cards and then decided to keep buying more... **** ffg, lol.
  6. If you want the cards for 5 Kihraxz, you need to buy 3 G4H, no thanks! I'll stick to 4 X: Cartel Marauder — Kihraxz Fighter 20 XX-23 S-Thread Tracers 1 Feedback Array 2 Pulsed Ray Shield 2 Vectored Thrusters 2 Hull Upgrade 3 Vaksai 0 Ship Total: 25 Your opponent will be covfefe all over the place.
  7. Dalan Oberos should be available for Imperial players. He was hired by an Imperial Governor to hunt down force users and rebels in Chronicles.
  8. DALAN OBEROS! Scourge of my Players in Force and Destiny!
  9. Some bombs are dropped when you reveal your maneuver: Seismic Charges, Ion Bombs, Thermal Detonators, Proton Bombs. They will detonate at the end of the Activation phase and effect all ships within Range 1 of the token. Dropping these bombs does not require an action, it is simply when you reveal your maneuver, so you can do it while stressed. The other bombs require an action to drop: Proximity Mines, Cluster Mines, Conner Net. They detonate when a ship's base or maneuver template overlaps them, and they only effect the ship that caused them to detonate. Keep in mind that movement is not the only way to overlap. Barrel Roll, Boost, being Tractor Beamed, or just having it dropped directly on your ship will all detonate. This requires an action to drop, so you may not do it if you are stressed. Now there are a few special abilities that change the way a ship can drop bombs. The Salvaged Astromech Genius will let a scum ship drop a "Reveal your maneuver" bomb after you move, probably catching yourself in the blast. Time Bomber Pilot Deathfire's special ability is to perform a free action to drop a bomb when you reveal your maneuver. The Advanced Sensors system upgrade will let you perform an action before you reveal your maneuver, so you could drop a bomb with an action, or perform a Barrel Roll or Boost to slightly change your position, before using a "reveal your maneuver" bomb. Regardless of how you drop a bomb, a ship may only drop one bomb per round.
  10. Lieutenant Kestal (22) Rage (1) Autoblaster Turret (2) Unguided Rockets (2) Lightweight Frame (2) IG-2000 (0) "Double Edge" (19) Rage (1) Autoblaster Turret (2) Unguided Rockets (2) Lightweight Frame (2) IG-2000 (0) Sienar Specialist (17) Autoblaster Turret (2) Unguided Rockets (2) Lightweight Frame (2) IG-2000 (0) Scimitar Squadron Pilot (16) Fleet Officer (3) Inspiring Recruit (1) Lightweight Frame (2) TIE Shuttle (0) Total: 100 Kek! Double Edge's ability doesn't require you to fire at the target you missed, you can take shots at long range with your Unguided Rockets, and if you miss, fire at an enemy on your flank with the turret. Just get into the middle of the enemy's formation and mess them up. Rage doesn't really help the Unguided Rockets, but you should be too angry to notice.
  11. Yoda's species was included in Nexus of Power. He's a shriveled up Gungan.
  12. Because of the reasons posted immediately above and repeated here, lol. It precludes the possibility of them ever adding an Imperial version of ships, and it breaks precedent, no title is restricted to a faction, they are only restricted to particular ships. How would things be different if the Y-wing titles were Scum only?
  13. They should just leave it as it is. Would make the Pilot Skill 5 TIE Aggressors less useless.
  14. Onyx Squadron Escort is so disappointing. Nobody wants mid skill ships without EPTs. So many builds in that article were "Make a 33 point sink that dies in 5 damage!" Also, Juke? They didn't playtest it with Juke, did they? RTFC. Double Edge with Lightweight Frame, Unguided Rockets, and a cheap turret like Autoblaster is the way to go. Outfit the generics like that and you have baby U-boats. They also missed the obvious synergy of Kestal with Synced Turret and Deadeye. Or Blaster Turret and Intensity.
  15. It would be best if they figure out something other than Scum only. I'm still hoping some of the other Bounty Hunter ships become usable for Imperials like the Firespray-31. All they need to do is faq it to say This does not work with the TIE Aggressor. Nothing else needed. But even without an errata, there's only going to be 2 different Unique Pilot abilities.
  16. I'm going to repost a few things I put in a couple other threads if ya'll don't mind: This is my idea for another expansion, a two ship package similar to Heroes of the Resistance. Punisher An alternate paint Job Punisher. Purple works! 2 copies of a new Generic Pilot, and new Pilot skill 5 and 8 named pilots. Now with EPTs 2 new titles. Firespray-31 Complete re-imagining of Firespray-31 back to their original non-bounty hunter role: system security. Alternate paint job: Imperial Grayscale or Imperial Blue/Black Replete with blockier cockpit, solar panel themed side wings. (same idea as rectangular radar dish on falcon, slightly different) Imperial Security specialist themed pilot cards with slightly different stats and actions from the original, native Boost. (Outer Rim Smuggler has different stats) Different hull to shield ratio, such as 7 hull and 3 shield. Same dial. Priced comparatively to Scum ships, PS 2 or 3 at 26-27 points. No cannon, bomb, or missile slots, but one more crew slot and a title to add similar ability to TIE SF where you can fire with an extra attack dice from front arc, or make an extra shot into your auxiliary arc. New Imperial only upgrade and pilot cards and dials for YV-666, IG-2000 Aggressor, and Jumpmaster 5000. Punisher Titles: Punisher/IT - You must have at least 2 empty upgrade slots. When performing a green maneuver, recover 1 shield. -3 points Punisher/P - After you perform a primary weapon attack, you may gain a focus token and then perform an attack with a secondary weapon. 0 Points or Punisher/P - When you declare the target of your attack, you may acquire a target lock on the defender. When you receive a blue target lock token, assign a focus token to this ship. 0 Points
  17. The visuals were good except for the CG Tarkin and Leia. Those looked way out of place. The story was just a hot mess, and half the scenes from the trailer were cut from the final film. There is a term called "idiot plot," it means the advancement of the story relies on characters making mistakes or acting like idiots, and I have to say it applies. There are just so many little wtf moments and events that mess with the continuity of the film it prequels. I can list out all my little nit picks, and continuity gripes, but it just doesn't measure up to the Force Awakens.
  18. I wish someone had rescued Rogue One from that director.
  19. If you have foreign language cards that don't use the abbreviation, it works, except for the errata. Anyway, FFG, I am an Imperial Player that dabbles into Scum (By which I mean both other factions) whenever there is an upgrade card in the pack that I can use. If you don't want me buying any IG-2000s, then sure, errata it. Will save me some money. Same if you make Bomblet Generator Scum and Rebel only. Like your ridiculous decision with the Imperial developed Arc Caster.
  20. Villains of the Empire Punisher Alternate paint job. 2 copies of a new Generic Pilot, and new Pilot skill 5 and 8 named pilots 2 new titles. One that lowers cost and adds survivability, the other that provides action economy (free focus or TL during attack phase) and functions like TIE/D. New system upgrade (adds focus tokens whenever you acquire a target lock?) Firespray-31 Complete re-imagining of Firespray-31 back to their original non-bounty hunter role: system security. Alternate paint job: Imperial Grayscale or Imperial Blue/Black Replete with blockier cockpit, solar panel themed side wings. (same idea as rectangular radar dish on falcon, slightly different) Imperial Security specialist themed pilot cards with slightly different stats and actions from the original, native Boost. (Outer Rim Smuggler has different stats) Different hull to shield ratio, such as 7 hull and 3 shield. Same dial. Priced comparatively to Scum ships, PS 2 or 3 at 26-27 points. No cannon, bomb, or missile slots, but one more crew slot and a title to add similar ability to TIE SF where you can fire with 4 attack dice from front arc, or make an extra shot into your auxiliary arc. New Imperial only upgrade and pilot cards for YV-666, IG-2000 Aggressor, and Jumpmaster 5000.
  21. I take a pin vice (a small tool that holds a drill bit) and a piece of brass rod. I drill out a hole in the bottom of the ship where the mount used to be. Then I use some pliers to cut off the bottom of one of the clear stand pieces (2 come with every ship) to use as the new peg mount, drill a hole through the top of it and use the brass rod to pin it to the ship with a little super glue. The rod makes it stronger than the original. Pin Vice and Rods. You can buy a cheap tool and then purchase a pack of the rods in the size you need. I purchased the P3 kit years ago, and I still use it. Fixes just about anything, even DnD figures that won't stay glued. I level down the area and scratch it for a better gluing surface with a small Gerber pocket knife I bought from the Walmart gun case. It's served me well for a decade without dulling even after using it on metal Warhammer models. About the only way to get some metal minis stuck together but you wear out the drill bit faster. You may end up using a smaller drill bit for the pin vice than it comes with. So you'll have to buy thinner rods too. None of this is very expensive.

    Punish me Harder

    The problem is gaining a target lock against the enemy that you end up pointing at. Unguided Rockets fixes that particular problem for Bombers, at the cost of using up their action to focus or working focus tokens into your squadron. The Punishers were slightly overpriced to begin with, not really the best platform for Unguided Rockets. If you are going to put a 3 dice ship on the table, the bomber does it 5 points cheaper with better agility.
  23. effing FFG couldn't even make Unguided Rockets Imperial only. Only 3 ships exist that can take it and all 3 are Imperial, but they decided to leave it open for the other factions and future releases. Meanwhile the Scum and Rebel ships get Arc Casters (an Imperial invention) and Pulsed Ray shields... Defenders don't even get a new Cannon after the nerf to the x7 evade. Jeebus.

    Punish me Harder

    Some titles that are Punisher analogues of the TIE Defender titles perhaps. Punisher/IT - You must have at least 2 empty upgrade slots. When performing a green maneuver, recover 1 shield. -3 points Punisher/P - After you perform a primary weapon attack, you may gain a focus token and then perform an attack with a secondary weapon. 0 Points or Punisher/P - When you declare the target of your attack, you may acquire a target lock on the defender. When you receive a blue target lock token, assign a focus token to this ship. 0 Points

    Punish me Harder

    A Punisher title that discounts the cost of Torpedo, Missile, and Bomb upgrades by up to 2 points to a minimum cost of 1 is what it would take. As for the new cards: Cutlass Squadron Pilot (21) Collision Detector (0) Unguided Rockets (2) Lightweight Frame (2) 4 of those is durable, but seems less viable than 5 Scimitar Squadron Pilot (16) Unguided Rockets (2) Lightweight Frame (2) It's likely an imperial player will have 4 Bombers already, between being an early wave ship and the rerelease with veterans. I don't expect anyone to have more than 2 Punishers though. Only one Unguided Rockets in each TIE/AG expansion. I'm planning on getting 2, not running a full list of 4. Running some Bombers along with them could make for a fun list.
