    Five A-Wings

    I got my first game with the As today against the Dirty Y-wings list. I brought it home 125-106, but is was down to the wire. I started up like RStan exemplified, but I got too aggressive too soon and did a couple of bad calls manouverwise. He messed up with selfbumping on a crucial turn which helped me. It's a winnable match-up, but range control and patience is key here. Dice variance is too scary on range 2. The list was fun though, so I'll definitely keep running it.

    I've just picked up my 5th A-wing and look forward to fielding them. I wanted to ask if you thing 5As (like Rstans list) is preferably used in HS tournaments or are they viable as top tier in say a System Open?

    This is absolutely great stuff. Thanks!

    Falcon and Poe counter

    Is the new hotness Han/Wedge or Han/Poe? I'm confused.

    Three Point Five Horsemen

    I'd think perhaps debris gambit on Palob would be better than elusive?

    Nice teaken of the original list How did R5-P8 do? Would you still run him next time, and did you find Seevor to be better than a gunrunner. Also- How do you set up the ships?

    L3-37 is stapled to my lando. Compliments his ability to no end, and adds a bit of survivability occasionally.

    Han/Poe

    Yeah I too think HLC is good. Most of the time though I was chasing at range 1 so didn't really need it. What I'm unsure of is how much of a bid is wise to have with this list. Right now I've got 195 points and HLC (or black one title- but I really think that is useful) is the upgrade I'm most willing to sacrifice.

    Three Fangs are very fun, but fragile. I've run this for some time now, and I think they will struggle against all the rear arcs FO and Resistance are bringing in, but it is a very strong list in the right hands. Another way to go would be Fenn/Teroch and Scum Han or Lando. I've run F/T with Han with success, but I think Lando might be a better match. Plenty of design space on him with the two fangs.

    Of those lists- definitely number two. It provides you with 4 ships that can be flown independently and are all relevant threats for your opponent. Fenn and Teroch requires good flying and have little margin for piloting errors (even less so in HS format now I think), but if you can bait and switch for a good flanking run with your ships you could do well. I don't think this is the optimal Fenn and Teroch plus x list out there, but it has legs.

    Han/Poe

    I tried this list first time yesterday against Poe/Nien/Lulo and bagged the win. I ran it with EU, Title, Rose, Ray and Seasoned navigator. HLC on Poe. Title and EU won me the game. Combined with Roses ability and Rey, Han is just a beast. I even messed up on the set-up placing Han a bit too far forwards and limiting my moves so my opponent could focus all his ships on him. But then being able to boost white at PS6 even with a panicked pilot and constant stress was amazing. With all ships focusing on Han Poe was able to wreck havoc from behind. Might drop HLC on Poe for a bigger bid as it only got used once. SN never got used (not to say it wouldn't have been had I only flown better), so for extended games I'll definitely try Freelance Slicer. I'm still unsure if two ship lists can hack it in HS, but this is absolutely the one constellation I'll keep flying if so.

    [Blog] Ten Squads in Ten Days - 10) Scum Swarm

    Thanks for all the insight SOTL. Interesting take on bringing Nym instead of the YV. Do you run him with double proton bombs and a turret then?

    Regional Results thread.

    Small regional in Moss, Norway with 27 players (which actually is a lot for the Norwegian community). Winner: 3 Lok revenants with Harpoons and ABT Runner up: Kanan/Fenn/Ezra Top 4: Fenn/Lowrick/Poe & Ryad/QD/Sabacc Top 8: 4 x Wookies, QD/Lt Vynder/Scimitar squad pilot. Don't have the last two lists properly, but I believe it was a defender (Tie/D) heavy list and a Patrol leader with 2 NUs.

    Does anyone know the build on the Poe/Dash list Oliver Pocknell is running?
