  1. Thanks a lot, Dras! I've begun painting the vcx according to your guide. It's looking great already ☺ Do you remember what grey colour you used for the grey highlights?
  2. I'm currently a bit stuck on how to proceed painting the Rebel rogues from the Rogues and Villains expansion. Have you any suggestions or models of your own you'd like to post or link to? Step-by-step instructions would also be highly appreciated ☺
  3. Reporting a successful trade with @Card Knight. The Empire intercepted the first package, but my team of Rebel smugglers made sure that the second package safely found its way
  4. Thanks for the tips! I'll look into the various threads and take it from there. So just put the ship into the liquid and let it simmer until the paint has come off? It's in the link I posted. It's a black colour scheme with red highlights I have an Abbadon black spray can, nuln oil for shading and Mephiston red for highlighting will that suffice?
  5. Hi everyone, I've been painting my squadrons for some time now and been showing them off to my brother. He appears to be impressed since he asked me to paint his interdictor. Now, I've never dabbled in painting ships, so I hope that some of you have the time to give me some very basic instructions concerning the 'Do's and don'ts'. The particular work in action is linked below (a bit further down the topic): I've tried PM'ing Jekara, but he hasn't come back to me. So now I'm asking you: How would I go about this task? Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
  6. I still feel happy like a kid whenever I look at my MC80. In my mind, that ship is the centerpiece of what I consider the rebel fleet. I am of course deeply biased due to playing Battle of Endor in Rogue Squadron way too many times
  7. Pretty much sums it up - I also travel 3 hours to play nationals and regionals, where the Armada scene is much alive and well.
  8. Thank you very much! It indeed just prefers to dance around the enemy and try to hit them where it hurts the most. This list is incapable of trading blows against more optimised lists. Wall of text incoming! Sorry! Deployment is heavily influenced by the specific matchup and objective. Typically, I fly the Nebs and flotillas in flank formation while the MCL80 goes very slowly and head-on against the enemy. I try to keep it in range of Redemption, though. The cool thing about MC80 here is that with Madine + Engine Techs, it can become very unpredictable. So for deployment in a typical ship-heavy matchup, I try to create two threats by deploying the two "groups" apart, ready to flank the enemy: the Nebs + flotillas (which I use for blocking myself or the enemy when necessary) and the MCL80, as it usually is the primary concern for the enemy. Against bomber fleets, I try to take advantage of the massive AA flak my fleet can muster - so that usually means keeping the ships close enough to each other to make overlapping shots at enemy bombers possible. Taking advantage of Ahsoka + Redemption is usually not necessary in the first couple of rounds in either situation. This allows me to fly them far apart, until I or the enemy begin the engagement. As for the dials, I primarily use Navigate on the Nebs. I never use Concentrate Fire on them, as I prefer them to be in the right spot rather than trading blows. This means that I will actively use Navigate from round 1 to continously try to outmaneuver my enemy. The flotillas provide the Nebs + MC with Engineering and Concentrate Fire tokens. The Nebs in particular need to have some kind of reroll, and I simply can't risk to put them in a precarious situation just to get one additional die from a Concentrate Fire command: a dead ship is a useless ship As for the MCL80, I typically go (1) Navigate, (2) Concentrate Fire, (3) Navigate, (4) Repair, (5) Repair, and (6) Navigate. Raymus provides me with a Navigate token in round 1, which I can use in round two while I focus my long range fire on the enemy (if it seems likely that a long-range engagement seems likely when setting the dials). Then I restock on a Navigate token in round 3, which I can use in round 4. At this point, the Lib is usually where it needs to be in order to avoid being killed and can focus on staying alive. In my experience, this list can only hope to kill off some threats and then run away before the situation gets out of hand :b About Fleet Ambush, that's just a mistake. I may have miss clicked something there D: I'd put Planetary Ion Cannon in there or Contested Outpost, depending on my mood. Contested Outpost is so great - I usually try to bluff going for it while only actually getting a flotilla in range to grab points, while the Lib and Nebs go flanking the enemy
  9. Hi! I just saw the post and wanted to chip in with a very fun and but not so competitive list, that I have had some measure of success with Keep in mind, it's obviously a meme list Name: Madine's Gunline Faction: Rebel Commander: General Madine Assault: Advanced Gunnery Defense: Fleet Ambush Navigation: Salvage Run MC80 Battle Cruiser (103) • General Madine (30) • Ray Antilles (7) • Caitken and Shollan (6) • Engine Techs (8) • Heavy Ion Emplacements (9) • Spinal Armament (9) • XX-9 Turbolasers (5) • Mon Karren (8) = 185 Points Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57) • Ahsoka Tano (2) • Engine Techs (8) • Redemption (8) = 75 Points Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57) • Engine Techs (8) • Salvation (7) = 72 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Toryn Farr (7) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points Squadrons: • Shara Bey (17) = 17 Points Now, the idea with the list is to jump around the playing field and picking off smaller targets or squadrons. The list has extensive AA coverage, and with Shara the threat is even greater It is be design that the MCL80 has two crit upgrades. The Heavy Ion Emplacements are used to peel shield alongside the Nebs while the XX-9 is to dig for those game-swinging face-up cards. Tokens are abundant and Redemption therefore frequently is quite helpful at keeping the Nebs and MCL80 away from complete annihilation. 10 % of the time, it works a 100 % of the time! Although I like Leia, I just NEED tokens in my lists. Tokens combined with Ahsoka provide immense flexibility: providing the right token for any situation.
  10. One of my favourite officers just because of the flexibility she adds. With her nearby, you always have the right token 😊
  11. Good, good! Let the hate flow through you!
  12. Why did they make a third Nebulon alt art? Aren't there like quite a few other ships that do not even have one alt art?
  13. Given what we've seen from the collection thread, I'm sure we can borrow a fleet or two.
