  1. Yeah, I wonder if there will be anything special in the stand-alone Vulture pack (I don't care about the paintjob)? If not, I might just buy two of the SoS pack!
  2. I'm a plan ahead kind of guy, so I'm having to resist the urge to pre-order because when things get spoiled I'll be able to really decide if the Infiltrator is worth it or not.
  3. Yeah, I typically don't really get into big ships much. I have a bunch of them, but I'd rather fly 3 or 4 ships. I will say this though, the Batwing for 2.0 has me really excited. I built a squad with a generic Batwing, QD with Swarm Tactics, Muse to pull the stress off the Batwing, and Scorch for an extra 3 die attack. Looks real fun and I get 4 ships!
  4. .....aaaaaaaaaaaaand that's how they get you.
  5. I'm thinking about doing that too, but like I said the Infiltrator looks boring. I think I'd rather have more vultures - so long as I'm not missing out on upgrade cards.
  6. So I wonder if the Servant of Strife pack and one additional Vulture will be enough to build a squad? I wonder if I'll need two Vultures? I'm not really interested in the big ship. I'm trying to make decisions for a pre-order. Upgrade cards in the CIS big ship - do you think those will be available in the SoS pack or will they only be in the big ship? That might be the thing that makes me buy the big ship. Thoughts?
  7. Okay, can someone clarify for me the mechanics of this guy? It says WHILE ATTACKING... so does that mean you can literally wait until after the defender has rolled dice? Attacker rolls Defender modifies then attacker modifies attack dice. Defender rolls Attacker modifies then defender modifies defense dice. At any time during this process you can trigger Thane's ability???
  8. Weeeeeeellll.... I really appreciate everyone suggestions here, but she's not much of the arc-dodging re-positioning type. She's move of the punch-you-in-the-face-1-straight-to-victory, unless she's flying a GUNBOAT of course.
  9. She's pretty good at 3BQD from 1.0. My first thought was something like 3 50 point Nus with Proton Torps and all the trimmings, and Col Jendon. Buuuuuuut, what about Wedge and Luke with Proton Torps, and Biggs for meat shieldiness? She hates Kihraxzs. Actually, no, she laughs at them because I've tried to fly them so many times and failed miserably (TBC, why?). So, no way she's going to fly them. Also, no way she's flying anything that only throws 2 red dice. She LOVES lots of red dice.
  10. I respect Mrs. Rick too much to not give her my best game when we play. Unfortunately, that resulted in me beating her a lot over the last couple of months. I'm not a very good X-Wing player, but I guess I just got good against her - which is weird because in the three tournaments that she's gone to with me she's finished higher than me, and in one case she finished 3rd out of about 35 people. Sadly, with the repeated beatings I had been giving her she gave up on 1.0 and said she didn't want to play again until 2.0 came out. So, she needs to beat me to cheer her up a little with 2.0. Also, I have a list that I really like, and I want to throw it against the hardest thing I can so I can get better as well. THIS is my list, can you provide me with a strong counter to it? Thanks! Major Vynder — Alpha-Class Star Wing 41 Lone Wolf 4 Fire-Control System 3 Proton Torpedoes 9 Advanced SLAM 3 Os-1 Arsenal Loadout 0 Ion Torpedoes 6 Ship Total: 66 Major Vermeil — TIE Reaper 49 Composure 2 0-0-0 3 Tactical Officer 2 Ship Total: 56 "Whisper" — TIE Phantom 52 Juke 4 Advanced Sensors 8 Darth Vader 14 Ship Total: 78
  11. I'll be checking around midnight. Who am I kidding? I'll be checking every hour.
  12. Are you talking about Paul Heaver? For he is the father of us all.
  13. Are you talking about FFG pre-orders or through another site?
  14. Does this list have legs? "Whisper" Hates Dee Yun — TIE Phantom 52 Juke 4 Advanced Sensors 8 Darth Vader 14 Ship Total: 78 Major Vynder — Alpha-Class Star Wing 41 Lone Wolf 4 Fire-Control System 3 Proton Torpedoes 9 Advanced SLAM 3 Xg-1 Assault Configuration 0 Ship Total: 60 "Vizier" — TIE Reaper 45 Emperor Palpatine 13 Shield Upgrade * Ship Total: 62
  15. Okay, what happens if Vizier tries to do a Coordinate using his ability, but fails? He still gets his normal action after his normal move, right? Also, if he had Composure as a talent, could he attempt to coordinate and fail, get his focus instead, then bump or whatever and be okay?
  16. Thanks, @Boom Owl - I don't have time to read this right now but it looks interesting and I will later. I was thinking about running Whisper with Juke, AS, GONK, Shield Upgrade. Wingmen would be a Reaper with Palp and Vynder with Lone Wolf. Overall, I think if one is to staple anything to Whisper it would be Juke and AS. Maybe I'll change my mind after reading your OP though!
  17. I think this makes Vizier a really good coordinate ship, because if he can coordinate off of the Aileron that's great (white), if not then he can still stress himself if he didn't bump.
  18. So I'm looking for a cheap ship that I can use for coordinating an Imperial Squad, and Vizier seems like a decent option, especially considering his ability. My question is this: when activating his ability off his card, is the coordinate white or red? I do not have enough points to put Tactical Officer on him. Thanks.
  19. I have a scheduled a day off of work to go through it all. My little boy is going to help me, then he's going to fly a Boba Fett list against me.
  20. Now I just need a list that no matter how good I play against him I'll lose.
  21. The more I think about this the more I gotta put that in the list. He'll go nuts.
  22. I was just kidding around, man. Sorry if things are tight for you right now, I've been there before!
