  1. Looking through a beta builder. Nothing has jumped out. Sadface.
  2. Through a series of 2nd hand bulk buys I ended up with 5 HWK-290's (one still in packet, I was going to sell dring v.1) I haven't really had a chance to study hardly any of the new stuff in 2.0, but at 32 points base model I was wondering what peoples thoughts were on the viability of a loony 5 HWK swarm might be? Fire away.
  3. Is Armada a thing? I can assure you this was a totally independently derived question of whatever you are thinking of.
  4. I'm one of those weirdos that, if you can fly 100 points of a ship, then I like to own 100 points of that ship, there are exceptions, especially more recent waves I've toned that back a bit but, yes, that would be nice if two packs would aim to cover most bases up to the new 200 point limit, that would be ideal. I dare say, I'm not going to get that wish.
  5. Is there a Millennium Bug update for this? If not, I'm kind of scared.
  6. An arc dodging booster can also get out of arcs... To repeat, I'm not against aiming, and I am even OK if this is done before any dials are revealed, in fact that would be preferred, but still think it is annoying to make it a whole action. Time will tell I suppose.
  7. That's not a counter argument. You still need to plan ahead to predict where to aim, you just don't get an action.
  8. So they are making it an action? Cause that is pretty crappy. I don't mind the aiming bit, but forgoing an action to do so is not my idea of fun.
  9. Tie. (setup only): When flying 8 tie fighters, you may add another tie. 4 points. Fixed.
  10. Young Chewbacca? He's like 200 years old or something. He shouldn't have "aged" much.
  11. No one noticed the colour of the milk? What sort of fans are you guys?
  12. But the whining that it is OP will increase by 100%
  13. Basically any action on a damage card. Then I am screwed over for another round!
  14. You'd need acrylic range rulers. Cardboard just won't handle the pressure.

    Wave 11 Art

    Don't mention the Y-wing. *aside* I mentioned it once but i think I got away with it,
  16. If there is ever a 2.0 and they are thinking of changing turrets, ... Dear FFG, please don't make mobile arcs an action.
  17. I love this song, err, I mean, my kids love this song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0vsNFo2pDg
  18. Did this ever get played? I am highly interested. It's true that aces above PS7 can donut punch Dash, unless you are very good at foreseeing their moves and making distance. Evidence this worked would be great, otherwise it's still PtL for me.
  19. There's not going to be a 2nd edition until this cash cow is well and truly milked. I wish people would stop mooing about it.
  20. Vrill is not very good at range 3 in general. Shots on no stress opponents are 2 dice with range bonus green. With HLC, at least in arc, all ranges are deadly. If you are using him purely as a hard-core blocker, then sure, points are better spent elsewhere. So you are banking on whiffing with snapshot (or at least forcing them to use a token(s), for no damage) to get a focus from OpSpec. Well, kudos, I didn't see that coming. Thanks for the clarification. A very different play-style than what I am used to. As I said, intriguing.
  21. I know it's a wave 3 legacy, but Rebel pilots aren't really as cost effective as Scum. Not sure how you would fix that without buffing the Scum, which on the whole are not too bad.
  22. Actually, BMST is useless on Vrill. I forgot it removes stress. "Vrilly Knickers" "Snap" Wexley — T-70 X-Wing 28 Wired 1 R3-A2 2 Integrated Astromech 0 Ship Total: 31 Eaden Vrill — YT-2400 32 Heavy Laser Cannon 7 Jan Ors 2 Tactical Jammer 1 Ship Total: 42 Biggs Darklighter — X-Wing 25 R4-D6 1 Integrated Astromech 0 Ship Total: 26 99 points. In this list, you might keep APL, or, because you have Biggs, take Tactical Jammers to obstruct shots on him, and you also have Jan flinging him evade tokens. Hopefully Biggs takes enough heat off of Vrill while he's wrecking face, because his action economy is not great.
