  1. In a wave where two gunships came out simultainiously, its wierd that one got loads of new tricks and synergy, the other feels frankly boring and bland to fly, and not like a gunship. Even if they lower the price, it wont fix the boring part. But a config with a sideslip like ability would go a long way for me.
  2. Flew the LAAT again last night, and I am becoming a bit disappointed about it. To expensive, does not really feel like a gunship, if it did not have the rotating arcs, it would almost have been a perfect fit for the republic NU Class attack shuttle, as it almost feels more like a lambda than a gunship to me.
  3. Feature creep is a good way to describe it, our game came out close, but I was constantly up again almost full mods, a list that could castle in a corner, just red 0, sideslip blue, red 0, sideslip continue. Had torps, concussion bombs and buzzdroids and was in total control of where the combat took place. But I do think there is some good old powercreep in the droids gunship to, compare DSG-047 to Oddball in a V-19. DSG gets a TL just for shooting at something and in a droid gunship list, that is free predator for everyone, no need for Bulls eye arc or anything, and that is for only 4 points more, with shields and better dial.
  4. I played a LAAT + 3 y-wings to night VS 4 droid gunships, and it was like playing rock VS advanced spacegun. I really felt the droids getting all the fun stuff, shareing tokens, TLs, droid torps, and funny sideslips. Its seems crazy good and has a lot of fun new elements in just one list. I really hope tie interceptors get accecs to a lot of daredevil new kind of manuvers not on their dials via mods and talents., because I also want to have flying fun with the older factions.
  5. On the picture posted by Xanatos135 it looks like 1 hull, 2 shields, which seems crazy bad as their is a couple of ways to put damage under the shields.
  6. Not really with only 3 hull. I know if I fly them, I will roll nothing but green blanks and they will order 66 themselves in no time
  7. The lack of tournaments has actually bought the fun back into playing for me, because people at my local store are not constantly practising to win the next thing, which has brought way more fun and diverse lists to the tables.
  8. Rigged cargo shute says its medium or large ship only, so I do not believe that would work.
  9. Played my first game with it last night, and it left me with some mixed feelings. Great model, so many slots to customize it to different lists. I played Hawk with a couple of N1s. The table next to me had a player playing with 4 of the new droid gunships, and the sideslip just looks so fun and I really don't get why the LAAT did not get that. It is almost the first thing we see it do. Not having any blue Banks is reeeeaaally limiting in a way that again does not make the LAAT fly like in the movies, but game wise that's new, so I guess peoples opinions on this might differ.
  10. It grants shield regen if you sing Ghost riders in the sky, and focus if you hum Bonanza... This feels fluff/silly perfectly balanced to the movie 😅
  11. Off topic, I wonder what the resistance actual plan was? They would reach that high comms tower with the horses and then what? It seems it was their luck the First Order saw trough that plan.
  12. If it bumps you, it releases a horse stampede on you.
  13. This card is kind of opposites Star Wars land for me, x-wings boosting by rocks getting evades... The tie fighter seems more and more like the old slow Boy, compared to all these zippy x-wings.
  14. 6 tie bombers with cluster missiles on 5, has some burny area control to... 4 punishers with trajectory simulator...
  15. Dwing

    I had a thought...

    Ah yes the Falcon Han modded, Lando modded, Han won back and remodded back... Something like that...
  16. I agree, might give it more hull, less shields for gameplay though (If it ever his the table, I almost never play Rebels) But focus, turret Swivel. TL, maybe coordinate. I like the idea of it being a help to the rebels, more than a threat, so maybe an ability where it can hand out an evade to 1 friendly ship at ange 0-1 each turn as long as it has shields. The shield envelop the close by friends or something like that.
  17. Targeting assist could be fun to try. With snapshot. For that early low I token buff.
  18. Have you seen The Mandalorian? An X-wing kill team vipes out a space station, when they where called out for a prison transport, no questions asked. I guess a few innocent people where on that space station, the x-wing pilots took like another day at the office.
  19. This book has RO-GR on the front and M-OC inside. Can we get the Star Scavenger for X-wing now ;)?
  20. As new players I think you can easily forgo the gunboat until its rerelease, its not theceasiet ship to get to work for beginners anyways. I don't know if anybody really flies the Khirax these days?
  21. It's like Star Wars is slowly comming back from some horrid nightmare, this looks so cool
  22. The files for those who want to make one Ithorian Herd ship Thingiverse
  23. This is my design of an Ithorian freighter/personal ship, based on the idea of the Ithorian Herd ships. This guy is working for the Rebels, smuggling stuff like tibanna gas canisters in the forest on his ship. The pilot himself sits high on top of it all and can enjoy the view of the forest and the stars above. Due to Ithorians being generally very peaceful, this ship is lightly armored with a pair of lasers that can swivel around the ship. Furthermore the ship has a docking bay for smaller fighters with a shield barrier normally used in much lager ships. I see this ship filling a "healer role" in a list, more than something that deals a lot of damage. and I have an idea of a funky way of UFO flying, where you can put your move dials down, using any side of the base, as the ship technically don't have a front, you always have to put your turret indicator to the side that you use though. Then it will probably be a red action to turn the turret. But I will see if I ever get that tested.
