  1. Got one: Dumpster Star Author: shmitty Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 400/400 Commander: Garm Bel Iblis Assault Objective: Station Assault Defense Objective: Contested Outpost Navigation Objective: Doomed Station flagship ] Starhawk-class Battleship Mark I (140 points) - Garm Bel Iblis ( 25 points) - Amity ( 6 points) - Strategic Adviser ( 4 points) - Kyrsta Agate (off) ( 5 points) - Weapons Battery Techs ( 5 points) - Quad Battery Turrets ( 5 points) - Ion Cannon Batteries ( 5 points) = 195 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Leia Organa (off) ( 3 points) - Repair Crews ( 4 points) = 25 total ship cost CR90 Corvette A (44 points) - Jainas Light ( 2 points) = 46 total ship cost Modified Pelta-class Assault Ship (56 points) - Ahsoka Tano ( 2 points) - Projection Experts ( 6 points) - Intensify Firepower! ( 6 points) = 70 total ship cost 4 YT-2400s ( 64 points) = 64 total squadron cost
  2. I think the most convincing list with it is Aresius list where he brings bails - entrapment formation + token makes going for speed zero shenanigans very easy. Evasive action also caught my eye, hammerhead and admo certainly would also approve it
  3. Well Aresius is doing well in the tournament: Aresius - 400 Bid GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points)- Bright Hope ( 2 points)- Ahsoka Tano ( 2 points)- Bomber Command Center ( 8 points)= 30 total ship cost[ flagship ] Starhawk-class Battleship Mark I (140 points)- Kyrsta Agate (com) ( 20 points)- Concord ( 12 points)- Strategic Adviser ( 4 points)- Bail Organa ( 7 points)- Ruthless Strategists ( 4 points)- Flag Bridge ( 0 points)- Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points)- Leading Shots ( 4 points)- Entrapment Formation! ( 5 points)- Magnite Crystal Tractor Beam Array ( 10 points)= 213 total ship costGR-75 Medium Transports (18 points)- Leia Organa (off) ( 3 points)- Comms Net ( 2 points)= 23 total ship cost2 X-Wing Squadrons ( 26 points)1 Hera Syndulla ( 28 points)1 Y-Wing Squadron ( 10 points)1 Jan Ors ( 19 points)1 Scurrg H-6 Bomber ( 16 points)1 Gold Squadron ( 12 points)1 Lando Calrissian ( 23 points)= 134 total squadron cost ------------------- I myself was having a bit fun with Garm Bel Iblis: Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 398/400 Commander: Garm Bel Iblis Assault Objective: Surprise Attack Defense Objective: Rift Ambush Navigation Objective: Solar Corona GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Leia Organa (off) ( 3 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 23 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Ahsoka Tano ( 2 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 22 total ship cost [ flagship ] Starhawk-class Battleship Mark I (140 points) - Garm Bel Iblis ( 25 points) - Amity ( 6 points) - Lando Calrissian (off) ( 4 points) - Strategic Adviser ( 4 points) - Local Fire Control ( 4 points) - Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 194 total ship cost Assault Frigate Mark II A (81 points) - Paragon ( 5 points) - Local Fire Control ( 4 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points) = 104 total ship cost 1 Shara Bey ( 17 points) 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) 2 A-Wing Squadrons ( 22 points) = 55 total squadron cost ------------------------------ I guess there is the question what you are looking for. All titles seem playable. Agate seems to be the commanders of choice for many and Walex seems married to her. Discard your brace -> get your brace back -> profit I have yet to find a good argument to use the Mark II There seems to be a genuine desire to play it with two salvo tokens - and that is certainly threatening What bothers me most is speed II Shaving of points from the rest of the list is a tactic that many employ to deal with it, so picking something to go with the starhawk is difficult.
  4. Just alternative suggestions: GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Leia Organa (off) ( 3 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 23 total ship cost Hammerhead Torpedo Corvette (36 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - External Racks ( 3 points) = 43 total ship cost We already discussed the rest And Admo is tried and tested. Edit: also have you ever tested flag bridge -> fleet command like take evasive action or entrapment formation on a starhawk?
  5. I, don't think its all powerful at all but it really puts a set of bad choices in front of you. Try to shave of points by not engaging the starhawk and kill fighters and transports? Try to run away? Try to kill it? None of these seem particulary enticing to me at the moment. A none of these feel really rewarding. I dunno, maybe I just don't like it as a play experience.
  6. I expect the same. And the usual anti-squadron solution: kill the carriers won't work well for you at least it doesn't with any build I have come up with so far. I dread this becoming popular or wide spread. I also share the notion that this is boring to play with and even more so playing against it imho. My solution for the future will probably be: be second and run away. I really don't have a good answer to this atm.
  7. Can we get the objectives for the fleets that are already out of the tournament?
  8. Don't worry guys, the one Gladiator at German Amazon dropped 3€ in price and if 149 euros don't excite you there is now a second one on offer, used for the small price of 178 euros. 🤣
  9. I saw a list with Starhawk + full squad complement and no other ships but flottillas in the other thread where someone just picked AG for themselves. Double or nothing.
  10. Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 398/400 Commander: Garm Bel Iblis Assault Objective: Surprise Attack Defense Objective: Rift Ambush Navigation Objective: Solar Corona GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Leia Organa (off) ( 3 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 23 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Ahsoka Tano ( 2 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 22 total ship cost [Flagship]Starhawk-class Battleship Mark I (140 points) - Garm Bel Iblis ( 25 points) - Amity ( 6 points) - Lando Calrissian (off) ( 4 points) - Strategic Adviser ( 4 points) - Local Fire Control ( 4 points) - Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 194 total ship cost Assault Frigate Mark II A (81 points) - Paragon ( 5 points) - Local Fire Control ( 4 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points) = 104 total ship cost 1 Shara Bey ( 17 points) 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) 2 A-Wing Squadrons ( 22 points) = 55 total squadron cost I thought about it some more: Amity might be the correct choice, its cheaper, it gets me a defense token I can replace if I don't play against an Onager. In case I do, I might keep it to get extreme range defense. Switched to a Mark one, as much as it pains me its ten points I decided to bring in Lando and Strategic Adviser instead of Intel and Walex. Walex is much better with Agate she can insure a use for your brace tokens and brings a second one. Lando acts as an insurance if my enemy finds an accuracy or brings an intel officer or hits me with a biiig demo hit. I can take one big shot more. Activations now 5 instead of 3. Its just the name of the game. Being out activated is dangerous. I want the Intels, I dooo but I end up cutting them all the time. Toryn on the other hand seemed superflous she really is only there to fish for better results. I had two succesful games so far and in both my opponents went for the Frigate, so I will be prepared not to let it get jumped. I won both games. Garm + Ahsoka + Leia for one 3 and one 4 command ship, gives you rediculous flexibility.
  11. And this reduces the field to one lone Rebell.
  12. Can I ask, what exactly you are bidding for and why? I agree with your logic: "Linked Turbolaser Towers" As soon as you bring two salvo tokens this seems to be the correct TL upgrade. Caitken and Shollan - I feel this is the incorrect choice for the Starhawk Mk I more so than Mark two but even then. LS costs less, can be used on all attacks (and we want the double arc) including flak, and your dice pools are a wild color mess, which C&S hate. How useful have found the Magnites so far?
  13. Well I wanted to find a use for the Mark II. The red/blue suite is just better to trigger agate (off). And it gives you a bit more reach with flak. I mean its just an option to use your flak shot, I would agree with you shooting ships is more important. Amity plus bulkheads seems not too great since Amity triggers when you get overlapped not when you ram someone, while bulkheads trigger if you ram someone smaller. So this isn't worth it for me. DCO might be a cool option but I ALWAYS hesitate with her, since you might have a dead card on your hands. Sure it might be AMAZING if he brings 3 ACMs and black dice galore. But it might be 5 points for naught. The thing is, I at least want the options to select my tokens. I can decide what salvo replaces, with Concord I am stuck with the token - the huge boon I see with Concord is that this is somewhat of an important factor in a mirror match facing of against a magnite concord. Thanks for the feedback! I guess I have to test this a bit and swap around some cards to see if this goes anywhere
  14. Worst: Konstantin. Its bad imho and his screaming pose urgh it conveys the character I guess. Best: Garel's Honor Everytime I see a Hammerhead I lament that they don't look like the one in Rogue one with those side turrets. Well at least it looks totally awesome ramming that Gozanti to bits.
  15. Garm - Back at you! Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 400/400 Commander: Garm Bel Iblis Assault Objective: Surprise Attack Defense Objective: Rift Ambush Navigation Objective: Solar Corona Assault Frigate Mark II A (81 points) - Paragon ( 5 points) - Intel Officer ( 7 points) - Local Fire Control ( 4 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points) = 111 total ship cost [ flagship ] Starhawk-class Battleship Mark II (150 points) - Garm Bel Iblis ( 25 points) - Unity ( 10 points) - Intel Officer ( 7 points) - Kyrsta Agate (off) ( 5 points) - Local Fire Control ( 4 points) - Linked Turbolaser Towers ( 7 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 212 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Ahsoka Tano ( 2 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 22 total ship cost 1 Shara Bey ( 17 points) 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) 2 A-Wing Squadrons ( 22 points) = 55 total squadron cost I had too much fun creating this xD I suppose strat adviser and Toryn are better choices but this struck me as nasty and fun. Thoughts?
  16. To be fair, the newer releases are a bit different: both the starhawk and the onager come with Local Fire control and heavy fire zone, the SSD came with a lot of cards that previously could only be obtained buying other expansions. So I would consider this a welcome improvement compared to earlier releases.
  17. I have a shared collection and with a friend and we sold our Glad / Mc30 and two Arquitens for more than the original pirce and got enough money to buy the Onager and the Starhawk + extra goddies for storage etc. We aim to rebuy the other stuff as soon as its back in stock (and we still got enough money left over to buy half the stuff we sold). Last time I looked, the only available Demo goes for 152 Euro on Amazon Germany. The situation is just absurd.
  18. Blockade run? Why not: most wanted? Station Assault?
