    Set her up for a broadside and either wiggle with 1 banks or just slow roll with 2 straights. Should get 3 turns of hellish long range fire before energy/enemy movement cancels the guns (most epic games are decided in 2 turns of shooting but beware those few long games) backed up by a pile of relatively cheap 3 dice snubs to screen and hopefully delay the enemy for one more good turn of shooting from the cr90. Plus x wing type ships ain't bad in epic

    How can Maul work on a Huge ships ? You receive ZERO stress tokens (you can't, as per rules) and the ability says "reroll as many dice as stress tokens received" so = ZERO rerolls.


  2. Huge thanks for all your work, HB!  One of the X-Wing community heroes!

    So true. Thank you for allowing us to go crazy on customized stuff !

     

     

    Has there been any thought given to adding Heroes of the Aturi Cluster to the program? I've started creating pilot cards for our group's campaign, but being able to use the actual record sheets from the campaign would be even better!

    That would be fantastic, as we started a campaign with my group of players... even though i guess that would mean lots of work.


  3. I really tend to love your missions, Babaganoosh ! Flavor + Great (and not too complicated) mechanics = lots of fun

     

    In your list of awesome missions, do you intend to make a category for missions with huge ships ? With my friends we play the typical format (100 pts) every week, but once in a while we try to do something different, and i'm searching for excuses to dust out our huge ships.


  4. As a side note I think FFG is doing great by including more and more women on the X-Wing miniatures cards (be it pilots or copilots or crew or whatever). They are unearthing little known characters and putting them on the front, which is really great because inclusiveness has been lacking for a loooooooooooong time in our white-cis-male-dominated hobbies.

     

    So kudos to FFG, continue on this track.


  5. I get to play them from time to time on epic format. But had a blast playing a 125 points game with the transport... surprised me how playable it was with so few points !

    300 points is for me the major advantage / desadvantage of epic: lots of ships makes a whole different situation, but it takes so much more time (so much more room !), it's less easy to organize than normal 100 points.


  6. In fact the reasoning behind the wording "free BR action" is quite simple: there is a rule in the book that says that you can't do an action twice in the same turn. With the original wording, you could BR and then Expert Handle without breaking this rule, which meant basically doing TWO barrel rolls on the same turn. Devs thought it was bad, so they changed the wording.

     

    Now: if you BR you can't Expert Handle because it says "Barrel Roll" (with the word "free" before there to make it explicit that it's indeed a true BR action, not a movement similar to a BR).
