    Vulf got a reaction from Larky Bobble in Firespray 2.0 gets much needed buffs   
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Vulf got a reaction from MHamerR8 in TIE Aggressor Article   
    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.

    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.

    Technically Vader was just a clarification, not any kind of change.  He's already able to equip the x1 title because his ship name includes "TIE Advanced", so he's legally able to equip it according tot he rules regardless of any FAQ.  The FAQ is just to clarify for people who would otherwise try to argue that he can't equip the X1 title becasue his ship name already includes the X1 in it, but the rules would neer have supported that argument anyway.  The FAQ just prevents pepole from trying to make the claim in the first place.
    IG-2000 not working on the TIE Aggressor (as everyone expects them to FAQ) will require an actual change.

    Vulf got a reaction from the1hodgy in Make The Empire Great Again   
    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

    If you are trying to argue that Aggressor can't cover Tie Aggressor,  then that would mean X wing Only doesn't cover T-70 X Wings. 
     
    Current rules interpretation says Integrated Astromech works for T-70s, which is the ruling people are using to say that 'aggressor' should count for 'tie aggressor'.
     
    I don't think anyone believes that it should work that way, but the rules as currently written and interpreted support it working that way.

    Our stuff is kind of old, obsolete and cheap. We dont really have the same fancy toys and technology  (Alliance keeps stealing out tech from the EU) as the other power factions, and our lists are built on hope and prayers in the form of green dice. 
    Meanwhile, rebels and Scum are juggernauts that use raw power, size and efficiency combined with advanced technology to overwhelm the underdogs with sheer volume of firepower.

    Vulf got a reaction from BlodVargarna in Broken peg mounts   
    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.
