  1. I am routinely running two defenders, either twin defenders, with advanced sensors and outmaneuver (ryad and brath) or two deltas with a 54 pt ace like fel w/ predator, or a gunboat, or a phantom These squads are very powerful and do very well with a range of opponents. two defenders, where one plays chicken and runs away lets the second swoop in with OM and just tear things to bits. It's a great ship.
  2. speaking mostly for imperials, I'd strongly vouch for significant improvement to the TIE advanced generics, along the lines of: Tempest Sq. -1 Storm Sq. -2 The generics are just sluggish, they have poor reactivity, and really don't compare to the power of similar point cost options. Why take a 43 point storm sq. pilot when you can take a much more potent Duchess at 1 point less, or a Phantom for 1 more?

    4 Phantoms - YOU WILL cry because of them

    Yep agreed, however practically Vader is a higher priority to destroy for most lists and putting him on whisper makes whisper the primary target. It’s much easier to bait and feint with echo, so much so that I have found Vader on echo to be the better fit, at least for me. It has led to more times where whisper ends up doing more damage because the opponent picked the wrong ship to chase. Furthermore, GI on whisper is a great fit for keeping her alive until the end of the game where she does very well. I find Vader on whisper inevitably ends up with a dead whisper pretty fast

    4 Phantoms - YOU WILL cry because of them

    3-4 phantoms are a very good list. I personally find the whisper or echo variants more enjoyable to play. 198pt Raiders Echo - Juke Sigma Sq. Ace - Juke Sigma Sq. Ace - Juke Imdaar Test Pilot - 198pt Aces Echo - Juke Whisper - Juke Imdaar Test Pilot - Imdaar Test Pilot - 200pt Sith Echo - Juke, Darth Vader, Collision Detector Whisper - Juke, Grand Inquisitor, Collision Detector Sigma Sq. Ace - Juke or my current favourite, which uses twin phantoms and Fel 198pt Echo - Juke, Darth Vader, Collision Detector Whisper - Juke, Grand Inquisitor, Collision Detector Fel - Predator

    Alternative interface for 2.0 cards

    something like this, text ramped up to just slightly smaller than the text on the Vader alt art. it's still below the size of the text of the upgrade cards though. The actions have been squished together a bit to allow it. I might bring the other side up a bit to let me have larger text in the box and move the subtitle to another spot.: or even just splitting the text between pilot stats and skills on the left, and ship specific things on the right? (roughly split with cut and paste)

    yea, I'm tinkering with it, having the text a different size than the upgrades isn't ideal, agreed.

    Alternative interface for 2.0 cards

    ahh fair enough. Yea, I think I prefer the black, but I thought I'd drop a white one in there as it's similar to the vertical cards, and also the same as the upgrade cards. I may need to enlarge the text area slightly, but I'm loathe to give up vertical space as it cuts into the area where the actions are displayed, which are of consistent size with the "additional action type" black and white tabs used on upgrade cards.

    this one? just to show what the upgrades look like tucked underneath

    Alternative interface for 2.0 cards

    Hi folks, it's been a bit since I posted new content last, (+ a username change!) I've been tinkering with a modified interface for 2.0 cards. I had a 1.0 card interface that was pretty serviceable for my art but I wasn't happy with the look I was getting with 2.0 cards, because the graphic design on the FFG cards was just too different from it. FFG moved away from skeuomorphism towards a cleaner interface with more blacks and pure colours, so I really thought I should start rolling out something that fits a bit better with this. I know there's an alt art interface they have been showing for tournament prizes, but it edges more towards clean HUD rather than the metal around it, so I thought I'd try and come up with one of my own, with a bit more of a 'cockpit feel'. I did a few sketches here for rebel and imperial cards, then I've bashed in a few basic colours to get the idea with the text from 2.0 Vader and Madeline Boni's awesome Vader artwork. I have kept all fonts above the minimum cut lines and above a readable font size. Elements used for the rough sketches came mostly from X-wing game layouts and the central HUD for the TIE I used the console from Otaking77077's TIE fighter movie as a reference. This is quite a ways from done, the colours in there are a rough sketch for the final piece, so I'll update this first post as I work my way through painting this into a final pair of pieces. Imperial Interface: Rebel Interface: Test colours with Vader:
  10. I had 4 different usernames I was using across 4 different platforms, (citruscannon, oiler, oilerx7, citrus7), as each was set up at different times, so I've been trying to rope them all into one username for a little clarity, I asked to have my name switched here, which now makes it the same as reddit, and after that art station as well. -P
  11. had mph in my notes, so I was off, but glad it's still accurate! -P
  12. great point. fancy super metals? The interceptor is given a canon speed much greater than mach speed in atmosphere, and the comics have them fighting in atmosphere all the time. Above my pay grade,
  13. Hey! no problem, unfortunately I don't at the moment, I have been working through other artsy commitments for the last while. I've had a B-wing and this interface burning a hole through my desktop whilst I've been working through other work. I had a look at it again and I think there are a number of amendments I'd want to make, based on having tried out a few 2.0 games, and based on having more info about what's important to think about (e.g. linked actions for example), so you're absolutely right. I was trying out some ideas on the plane today, I think having these refitted for release sounds like a great idea and I'll do my best. Yea, it was an idea for a universal card but it's been bugging me too, I'm trying out different configurations to come up with something that is both universal but also doesn't sacrifice visual look. -P

    Creating B-Wing art: "Enemy ships in Sector 47!"

    I haven't done any canvas paintings of Soontir Fel yet, but I'm very much interested. As mentioned above I have this other art show that will be taking up some time, but after that I would love to do a larger piece. It's fair to say I do digital painting only about half as much as I do traditional work. Thanks! haha great to hear!

    Creating B-Wing art: "Enemy ships in Sector 47!"

    Great! busy month though. I carry my tablet with me wherever I go to paint whenever I can, but last month was almost all gouache and acrylic paintings. 7 sets of flowers, a painting of a golf course, two portraits and a large cat. We have an annual event in my city called Artwalk, where people set up with easels on the main road for a weekend and do the whole Montmartre thing. As art is not my day job, getting ready for this has vacuumed up my spare time this month. This is in a week and a half, so I'm up to my eyeballs in canvas, but I'll hopefully be back on track soon
