  1. What no Snipers?! 😝👍 jk hehe The choice between DLT and Z-6 is interesting... I hope having some of each ends up being the right way to go. I guess an option would be to drop a BARC for a 6th Trooper? Or drop a Trooper for a 3rd BARC?! It might be nice to try and get heavy weapons on all of your Trooper units. I usually make sure I’ve got heavy weapons before I start adding the last extra trooper. But I like it as is! Sounds like we might see them before the end of summer!? Happy Hunting!
  2. Well done! Congrats. 😁👍
  3. Ooh I like the list and might be even better with these suggestions! With the Officer and MedDroid on the Fleets they become the obvious target but with them on the Troopers your opponent has a tougher time deciding who to shoot at. This might be nice too. Get those Fleets up the table a little quicker!
  4. Looks pretty good to me! 😁👍 My only thought would be to drop an extra Trooper somewhere so you can put Force Push on Luke. There are so many useful tricks with Force Push it’s hard to leave it out. You don’t have a second unit of Fleets do you? If you do I’d consider upgrading one of the Troopers to Fleets. Two units of Fleets would be a good up close distraction to go alongside Luke and Sabine, possibly taking some of the heat off them.
  5. I am interested to see how the Mk2 Blasters play on the table. I’m planning on building a list with a base of: Leia, (2)Rebel Vets, (2) Mk2 Blasters and (2) Z-6 Troopers
  6. Looks pretty nasty. I wonder if it’s worth trying to get Han in there? I like it though! I think triple taun tauns is gonna be mean. And I am interested to see what the veterans feel like on the table. I want to try two Rebel Vets, two Mk2 Blasters and Two Z-6 Troopers with Leia as a base and work from there.
  7. I also enjoy running a group of Troopers behind an AT-RT so they get the light cover from the ground vehicle!
  8. In my experience with Rebels I’ve found I need to take Dodge actions more than I initially wanted to. Dodge - Shoot is often the preferred turn for a Rebel Trooper unit. Move - Dodge is common. And don’t forget Nimble! You get that dodge token for the whole turn. Leia can be a huge help in handing out those dodge tokens and freeing up troopers to get an aim action every once in awhile. Try different stuff and find what you have fun with! My advice would be to embrace the chaos of the Z-6 and make sure you’re getting dodge tokens.
  9. As someone who enjoys a tight rule set and modifying minis I have been interested in the reference cylinder idea since the game launched. Each mini base size would have a standard cylinder size. You can go hog wild modifying minis and the gameplay would stay consistent! I can see moments where trying to swap out a mini for a cylinder might be fiddley but so is every move and measurement.
  10. Heyo All, I finally pulled the trigger and got my own nerf gun U-Wing to use as terrain for legion! Should I use Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade for the wash? Earthshade for the white areas and Nuln for the engine bits?! Looking for advice to dirty it up please... Thanks
  11. Good stuff! Its nice to have the extra dice and range rulers etc as well. Theres a lot of fun to be had with just two core sets! The general consensus is to run Stormtroopers with the DLT and Rebel Troopers with the Z-6 so that’s good to get used to early. Pew Pew!
  12. Both factions are great and only really differ in a handful of ways. Welcome to the hobby! The usual recommendation is to get two core sets to start. If you like you can split the core sets with a friend and each take one faction. Building from there, Leia for the Rebels and Veers for the Empire are good choices. Then you can flavor to taste! The meta right now is to run 3 Sniper Strike Teams which is a little costly to purchase but only important when people start going to tourneys. I also usually recommend the “Operation: Take The Hill” special scenario on the FFG website as a great 500pt format for a 3’x3’ table. Have fun!
  13. This! Thank you. Operation: Take the Hill is great.
  14. The heavies would be throwing fewer dice with the Landspeeders sure! I think it would be easier to keep guns on target with two Landspeeders going speed 2 instead of the airspeeders speed 3. And easier to focus fire with both speeders going the same speed. You would lose the alphabet squadron feel but it might be easier to run. And a 4th Trooper unit might help as well.
  15. What about two Landspeeders? Cheaper than a T-47 and might be pretty nasty depending on how you kitted them out. I wish that Landspeeders could provide cover and displace enemy troops more often... 3 AT-RTs and 2 Landspeeders?!
  16. Wow! That’s a lot of armor on the table for 800pts! 😁👍 Objectives might be tricky but it would be a very intimidating list on the table. I think being able to get Leia into the list would help a lot with it’s competitivness. But it is fun to use an Officer and put those points into more crazy vehicles!
  17. Yea the few times I’ve seen Pathfinders in a game they get outnumbered and taken out pretty quick. I think Infiltrate is kinda a trap... I do wonder what Jyn can contribute to a list without Pathfinders though! I’m sure she still has some good uses but I haven’t tried yet.
  18. I still haven’t tried more than one astromech in a game. I’m always scrapping for points so I usually cut them out. I can only imagine your opponents frustration facing 3 AT-RTs with astromechs keeping them alive though! 😁👍
  19. I haven’t tried this list yet! I’ve tried 3 AT-RTs a couple times and I do like it. It’s a lot for your opponent to answer! I’ve tried 2 AT-RTs and a Landspeeder once. It was pretty fun but the Landspeeder did go down pretty quick once it was exposed. If I were to tweak this list now I’d likely swap the Rotary’s and HQ Uplinks for Flamethrowers. Maybe put one HQ Uplink in the Landspeeder to make the most of it. I’d try and get enough points to upgrade the Officer to Leia.
  20. I always say try it and have fun! If you’re looking to make it more competitive but still keep all three heroes, I’d recommend dropping the Pathfinders and swapping in a 2nd Sniper Strike Team then build out (5) Z-6 Trooper squads. That’d get you to 10 activations. Maybe drop the Officer and Med droid? Or maybe swap the Officer for a 2nd Med Droid to keep those heroes alive longer? Maybe Sabatuers instead of Snipers?! I like the idea of a list built around the three lady heroes!
  21. Yea I think the most common/efficient build for Luke right now is Force Push and Emergency Stims. I think Duck and Cover and Stims for Han is common as well? Chewie likes Tenacity! And maybe Stims?! Thats all a great start! Sniper Strike Teams are strong right now so you both might want to look into Commandos and Scouts. It’s a little pricy getting two or three Sniper teams though...
  22. That’s not a bad looking first list! Have you started purchasing stuff yet? I still recommend getting two core sets to start because the value is so great and you get extra dice and range rulers etc. If you’re friend is going Imps it’s even more financially efficient to split the core sets!
  23. I’ve only run the Landspeeder once as a Chewie skateboard sorta thing. Chewie can take a wound or two on the approach to trigger tenacity and then jump out and wreck face! I did miss getting to shoot with Chewie those few turns he was in the Speeder though... I was running the rocket launcher and the Medium blaster so it threw a lot of dice as well! I am bummed it doesn’t provide cover like the At-RTs do... and only displacing Troopers on compulsory moves... and once I exposed it (and learned about the “only on compulsory moves displace” thing) it dropped pretty quick. But like Buckero0 said it is a lot of fun!
  24. I still think it’s a good idea to get two Core Sets if it’s in your budget! You get extra troopers, extra dice, extra range rulers etc. The value is great. Then Veers and your Deathtroopers. Boba is a good stand alone purchase. Scout Sniper Teams are very effective but you usually want to field two or more Strike Teams so it’s not the most efficient purchase. I’ll also recommend the Operation: Take The Hill special set up as a newer player! It’s 500pts on a 3’x3’ table so it’s a little quicker and more accessible. Welcome! Have fun!
  25. That’s sounds fun to me! When do we expect the veterans? It might still be worth it to have access to multiple cheap Z-6 squads but if you don’t mind waiting and aren’t trying to be super duper competitive your plan sounds good to me!
