I love Foresight and Admonition so I'm trying to build a suitable list to bring to a store championship (probably 12-20 players). Given that I'm rather lacking in experience (2 games @ 400 points) any advice is appreciated.
Depending on the enemy my rough plan (for example for ISD/VSD's) would be for Salvation and Yavaris to set up almost head on to the main enemy threats and be the focus of attention. Each of them are a reasonably significant threat, but also squishy, so should draw attention while the MC30's seem far off and not a threat. The MC30's probably would take left and right flanks at high speed arriving at the rear/sides of their target(s) about turn 3 which would hopefully also be when the enemy is fully engaged with the Neb's. Yavaris would support a defensive squadron game trying to position for a 3 squadron alpha strike (with a token).
My concerns are am I trying to fit too many archetypes into 1 list. Would I be better replacing the Neb's with an AFMk2B as a dedicated carrier with more squadrons, or with 2 x TRC90's?
It worked well against a similarly inexperienced player (with Dutch, Wedge, Han and a B-wing as squadrons). Then I played using Truthiness's B-wing list and failed miserably against an experienced player. However it taught me many lessons such as take Jan but protect her with more than just Wedge!
