    Showtimebrad reacted to Celestial Lizards in Imperial ARC and V-Wing Wanted, Unboxed or in blister pack   
    Just read Thrawn for the first time. Loved it. Now that I know that V-Wings were used alongside early TIEs and aging ARCs and Eta-2s, I WANT ALL FOUR, but especially the V-Wing and ARC. We already know the ARC is cool, and technically, an Imperial one could use the title, although they would almost definitely errata that, so 2 attack, 1 defense, 6 hull 3 shields, sounds like a reworking of the TIE Punisher! And V-Wings could easily become similar to how Interceptors were/are=too expensive for swarms, but cheap enough to make named pilots VERY effective. Thoughts?

    Can't wait to put this on PTL Jake in a squad with Kyle Katarn. Have Kyle send him a focus token at the start of combat, which gives him a free boost action, which gives him a free focus token, which gives him a free barrel roll action, which allows him to use PTL for an Evade/TL.

    The community is what gives a player their power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.

    Thanks for the input RStan. I'm considering the VI route, but also adding EU since the 1pt bid wouldn't be as important at ps10.

    There was nothing the Empire had to offer to me.
    I'm what one might call an "Independent Contractor." I find military dictatorships to be crass and cold, and upstart rebellionaires are too naïve and stomach-churningly idealistic to provide decent company. I was comfortable with my fleet, and how I fly it, and with rolling in fat stacks of credits all hopped up on glitterstims. There are worse ways to pass the time. I wanted for nothing...
    ...until I saw the Tie Striker in flight. The only ship that made this Independent Contractor want for something different.
    So indulge me, if you please. Tell me stories of the Tie Striker while I ease off of these stims to clear my mind for another run.

    I haven't read all the comments yet so maybe someone already said this but you way off. Clearly the rebellion had grown to a decent size, decent enough to have a strike force but notice that they threw everything they had (in a surprise attack) at the empire lost a ton of ships and then were on the run again after losing that many ships. They weren't nearly all powerful and that wasn't half the empires fleet, not even a quarter. I've said my peace continue.

    It is most likely that Old Ben remembered there was two but just hadn't heard anything about the other twin until Yoda said there is another essentially updating him that the other twin is still alive. If you notice in the scene Old Ben isn't super surprised when Yoda says there is another. This is easily explained. No sexism no forgetfulness.

    Yoda is absolutely referring to Leia. Thematically it would be the most BS retcon in the history of retcons if it was Ezra. The point of it being Leia, is that the entire Skywalker family drama is literally the backbone and core of the entire saga's story.
    Darth Vader confirms this. He also says there is another. Your sister your twin sister paralleling Yoda.
    Leia is the Neville Longbottom of Star Wars. If Luke fails there is another Skywalker who will take his place. Another Skywalker to fulfill the prophecy of the Chosen One.
    To make that Ezra would be to shoehorn him into the story for the sake of shoehorning him and im not cool with that.

    Showtimebrad reacted to ficklegreendice in Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor aka Jedi Starfighter suggestion   
    that scene of Jango chasing Obi, showering him in really powerful-sounding lasers and yet somehow never killing that little pinprick of a ship baffled me for years
     
    and then I saw Luke's ability in X-wing miniatures for the first time. Puzzled, I tried to think of what Luke did to merit changing focus --> evade. Then I remembered A New Hope and Vader taking forever to lock on Luke because "the force is strong with this one."
     
    And who told Luke to let go; use the force? Old ******* Ben Kenobi
     
    So, what apparently does the light side of the force do in X-wing miniatures? It cheats hard on green dice
     
    hence, Obi's proposed ability

    Showtimebrad reacted to NakedDex in About to Enter Regionals   
    If you're going to have fun, take whatever list you like. If you're going to try and place somewhere, take the list you have the most practice with. Last year, I settled on my regionals list (which was commonly panned as being "bad" and "poorly thought out" by a few of the non-locals) a few months before the event. I pretty much just ran that, and little else, between then and the event itself. My "bad" list won the tournament because I'd built a few oddball answers into it for the meta at the time, and I'd practiced the hell out of how to use them effectively. Any time I wasn't playing that list, I was playing lists I thought I'd come against in an effort to figure out their nuances.
     
    Practice, practice, practice. It'll not only help you to avoid mistakes, but to force your opponent to make them at critical times. 
     
    Also, don't be afraid to risk the trade. I feel like people are terrified of trading ships in a tournament setting, especially if they're 3-4 ship builds. Sometimes you just have to ask yourself "What would Leeroy Jenkins do?".

    Showtimebrad reacted to Vineheart01 in Chirrut Imwe and K-2S0 crew cards   
    K2S0 would probably be 1 of 2 things:
     
    1) Sacrificial card to cancel an attack (rip...)
    2) Droid function mimic - 1pt crew - Select an Astromech and pay its squad points. K2S0 has that droid's ability. If you discard K2S0, you lose the astromech
     
    I think the 2nd one would be nuts. Allowing droids on any ship with a Crew or double droid on the ARC would open a lot of shenanigans.
