  1. First round was against a Palp aces type list with ryad, Fel and a basic shuttle with palp and not much else. I focused down the shuttle, closed on Fel and killed him, then jousted with Ryad until she died. I lost OL and Ryad. Second round against a rebel list with mostly naked Poe, Garvin, and a PS 2 T-70 and PS 1 A-wing. Outjousted the aces and cleaned up the other two, lost OL again (to some just atrocious rolls against a target locked Poe) and the Glaive pilot this time. Third round was the one that caused me the most worry: against two U-Boats and Kavil. I lost OL and Ryad pretty early on, but they had worn down Kavil and one of the Uboats, and I was able to box Kavil into a corner, then take out the remaining U-Boat. I could see swarm lists being a problem, though they aren't throwing that many dice at a time at my ships with high evade pools. I think I can counter the triple Uboats fairly well, with this many evade dice/tokens and general durability my hope is that they'll use up their torps trying to get one ship down. The other list I worry about is one with a combo of Vader, Palp, and Wampa. That can force a lot of unavoidable damage through, and I'm not sure I have the damage output to burn through a Decimator in time. I like Juke because it tends to force a lot of uncomfortable focus-spending decisions on my opponent. Usually a decent shielded ship can afford to take one damage to save their focus token for their shooting, but if I make them take 2, that can change the calculus. I'm certainly willing to entertain other opinions though.
  2. Won a small local tourney 3-0 with this yesterday, taking inspiration from the "Jukes of Hazzard" list I saw here the other day "Duck, Duck, Juke" Glaive Squadron Pilot — TIE Defender 34 Juke 2 Stealth Device 3 TIE/x7 -2 Ship Total: 37 Countess Ryad — TIE Defender 34 Juke 2 Stealth Device 3 TIE/x7 -2 Ship Total: 37 "Omega Leader" — TIE/fo Fighter 21 Juke 2 Comm Relay 3 Ship Total: 26 the x7 title and stealth device makes for hilariously hard to hurt ships, and Countess Ryad's ability is just the bomb. OL is nice to have that high-ish PS out there to keep opponents on their toes.
  3. This was me! I had a blast and learned quite a bit. Always great to play new people, especially when they're such high quality people, both in terms of playing ability and gentlemanly behavior. Needless to say, I'll be tinkering with my list before the next regionals. Hope to see you there!
  4. right? detail feels a lot easier on these than on all those TIES (sob) this is the real reason Rhymerball is so popular, firesprays are easy to paint, and you only need to churn out three TIE bombers.
  5. I like the First Order TIE scheme, basically. I know the Finalizer isn't black in The Force Awakens (or at least it didn't look like it was), but I really like that black on white color scheme. I feel like I can justify this to myself (headcanon-wise) that post-Endor a task force commander might have scarpered off with his ships, and surely black paint can't be that hard to come by Considering it took Booster what...a year or so to afford red paint to paint his star destroyer, and he wasn't on the new republics hit list either On a side note, I keep joking with my friend that I'm gonna repaint his star destroyer red...star slowly then work my way up. if Booster had been willing to threaten to bombard a planet unless they painted his ships he might have gotten a discount

  7. Thanks for the kind words! I'm a fan of how the capital ships are coming out, but my squadrons need work. your squadrons make me regret I ever set brush and paint to TIE fighter.
  8. ok, I'm sold on Vader now. Completely sold. thanks much for the informative post, definitely going to try a list out this weekend at a store champs.
  9. hey guys! first post on here, just got into Armada. So First Order themed Star Destroyers: still gotta paint those TIEs though...
