    Savage Coyote got a reaction from RedLeader23 in Savage Coyote's Repaints   
    Hi, I lurk here.  A lot.  But all of the picture sharing going on in the Punisher thread prompted me to get off my lazy tail and photograph some of my repaints!
     
     

     

     

     
    TIE Punisher because, yeah, NO ONE fields him ever.  So that meant I had to paint him up.
     

     

     

     
    My Mist Hunter inspired by the A-10 Warthog nose art I saw at an air show recently.  Also collected a few kills which I documented on in the first picture (5) though I should have also done assists I think as Zuckuss'd have several of those as well!
     

     

     

     
    Painted up a HWK to run with my Scum stuff (though I guess he could also be a Rebel) and the first night out the thing was worthless compared to the unit it replaced.  Live and learn I guess.
     

     

     

     
    And finally one of my B-wings (well the only painted!)  Got inspired from a large color plate during a Google search and went with the white stripes.  I plan to paint most of my rebels this way (maybe not the Ghost or Falcon but we'll see.)
     
    Thanks for looking!  I'll infrequently update the post as I go.  I have some more imperial and scum stuff line up that I'd like to get to time allowing!

    Try Vessery / D with Quickdraw and Omega Leader. Even better synergy!

    Savage Coyote reacted to Autosketch in Some paint schemes for Phantoms and Defenders   
    Hi all,
    Being the big fan of Phantoms that I am, I drafted up a scheme for a phantom squad based off Scarif from Naval Intelligence, and I reposted an older scheme I did for the prototype Phantoms delivered by Sienar. For your interest

    Do wonder how much less the forums would whinge about nym if we removed Sabine (or Miranda) and dengar
    See, they've made top two world's twice in a row before nym and have already enjoyed more than their fair share of success
    Meanwhile, we haven't had any problems with nym showing up a lot locally because he has yet to appear with dengar. Dude's a lot of fun because he's close range high damage with no defensive dice mitigation. Makes for really tense close games

    I don't want to take the shine for this, This was all Nam-My Le's idea. Lots of awesome stuff including a badass template set and even a guest spot on our podcast!

    Nam-My Le "Hey guys, as many of you know I'm pretty heavily involved in table top gaming and I'm using that to try and help my home. I'm doing an online auction that I'll continually add items to as I go (most of this is X-Wing related), but if you want to donate I'd encourage you to do so on my page or directly to the charity of your choice."

    2 Gunboats, 1 Kimogal, 1 Phantom 2.  Maybe another gunboat if they can be crammed into a list.

    Savage Coyote reacted to Djaskim609 in Has powercreep in other factions snuck up behind the Imperials?   
    To answer the original question: it didn't sneak up behind the imperials; it happened right in their face.  
    I still play imps from time to time, so whatevs. I like all factions. 
    Almost as many as the the rebel players crying about the x/7 "crutch" (while building Biggs and stresshog lists).

    Savage Coyote reacted to weisguy119 in Thrawn just dropped and Raider Class Corvettes are now canon   
    Star Wars fans  are a fickle bunch.  You can throw  some ordnance tubes and a couple extra wings on a mini Lambda shuttle and get a cult following that spams these forums wanting the ship in the game while others, like myself, think it's butt-ugly.  You can have Prequel Era ships looking sleeker and more well designed than OT ships and have  some people clamoring for them while others claim they'll quit the game if they're introduced.
    I get it.  I used to be a purist.  Now, however, I just enjoy Star Wars - all of it, Legends, canon material, the more the better.  I've been loving Star Wars since I saw it as a 7 year old in 1977 ( yeah, I'm old).  I played the TIE FIghter game when it was released and loved it, though I never liked the look of the gunboat.  For whatever reason, I like the look of the Raider and I'm happy it's a canon ship now. Remember, it was designed by FFG in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd.  It's not like FFG just winged it on their own. Yeah, it's a kitbash of an Interceptor and a Star Destroyer but that's like chocolate and peanut butter to me - two great tastes that go great together.

    I actually like the Aggressor to be honest.  Probably pick up two.  The others are only one at the moment till I get a chance to explore them further or an upgrade card becomes relevant for other units.

    Savage Coyote reacted to Engine25 in A note to the forum on my reactions   
    It has been brought to my attention by a fellow player whom I greatly respect that after the errata announcement, I made some short and outspoken reactions in the posts in my original topic.  On that, I have this to say:

     I was admittedly disappointed by a number of things that got the stick.Things that in general I don't play. I tend to run a meta list once or twice and move on.  Lately, I've been enjoying returning to Rebels. I don't expect every ship to be great and its a statistical impossibility. Others have since convinced me that Mindlink can exist without Manaroo and they're probably right. Zuckuss needed a nerf. I don't get why they nerfed the Empire stuff; it didn't need it. Also, I am generally opposed to changing card text. Designers won't get it right every time, but it Creates unnecessary conflict when you try to introduce new players who probably don't know the they have to follow the online updates carefully to even know if the cards they own still do what they say.

    I still enjoy the game, and I have admittedly dabbled in meta lists but they tend to have too much for me to think about so I typically stick to more casual lists with experimental combos or lists with a lot of ships with few upgrades. I also think that my "outspoken majority" comment was accurate. They naysayers always get heard over the people who are okay with it. I show up to casual night when I'm not working to play casual games and I enjoy that. It doesn't upset me that I can't play my wave 3 ships and win tournaments. I play tournaments primarily to meet people.

    Others want other things from the game and I understand that. The best thing about gaming is it brings a lot of different people together. I did express disappointment that this was the way it was handled, and I am still disappointed. It sets a dangerous precedent, and they weren't as apologetic as they have been. I'm not the one to judge whether or not it was necessary. I do make it a point to understand the meta, but in general the meta doesn't affect my play experience. In discussions of X-wing and other games with that fellow gamer, I have freely admitted that I am not one to decide what needs to be changed for balance. I just like to facilitate discussion. And he was right, my post was inflammatory, and that was my bad. That wasn't the intention, it was just the shock and disappointment showing through in the moments following my first read of the update. Since then I haven't said much other than my initial reactions are probably overblown, and that cards like Palpatine and x7 can still be good in the right hands.  I have been outspoken before, but I have never handled it this poorly.

    So, apologies. Sweeping errata is, in my opinion, worse for the game than stale meta. I'm likely in the minority in that opinion, but for what it's worth, I am disappointed. I'm not sorry for my disappointment, but I do apologize for my inflammatory reaction.  It just adds to the negativity often present in forum comments.

    I also apologize for the length of this post. It just kind of erupted.
    Fly Casual.
