  1. Bit of background for the story: - Im originally British, but now live and work in Canada and have Canadian citizenship. I work with a lot of Americans and we always have a good laugh together on our meetings online. (I’ve met some as well in person when we do big projects). They are always ribbing me about The Queen and other things British , I give it back as well. Anyway, big conference call and one of the Canadian guys mentions about Canada Day next week and we will not be about. The senior US guy mentions about them being away as well towards the end of the week and taking two days off. So I said, “ I don’t believe you lot celebrate Canada Day as well, we only get one day off!” Lots of laughter and banter all round and then I finished with, “I know you don’t really, let me be the first to wish you all, Happy Traitors Day!” I’ll see myself out.........
  2. I’d remove everything off of your Nebulons and put on QBT, and possibly Salvation title on one? Then with the points saved get a GR75 and put Leia on that. She needs to be on a command 1 ship. Maybe then juggle your Squadrons around so you get enough spare then to add a slaved turret Hammer Head Scout or a HH Torp?
  3. I knew things where all a bit hazy, and I forgot this little snippet. Towards the end of turn 3, the Projection Experts Nebulon passed two shield forward to the MC75, and took out the Cymoon. This put 1 shield back in the front and left side. Here is a picture at the end of turn 3: - Screed showing his ineptitude at driving parked the Kuat on a debris field as well. Turn 4 had the Raider move out of the way of Screeds bad driving, and I fired 3 red from the MC75 which came up a couple of hits on the Kuat, just shield damage. The Projection experts Nebulon then took some damage from the Kuat, and as he had no tokens, ended up in the rear/side arc of the PE Nebulon . In return, this then put some damage into the Kuat, and my left one did some paltry flak on the Ties. During the squadron phase, another Tie died and Tycho was down to about 1 hull, or maybe he died and I think Howlrunner had discarded her scatter token. On turn 5 the The raider disappeared into the sunset, and the MC75 got out of dodge. The Kuat shot at a Neb putting a bit of damage into it. The Kuat then ended up in the rear arcs of both Nebulon B’s. Below is the end of that round: - It was at this point that we called the game. I didn’t want to punish my son by potentially destroying his second ISD so that was that lol. After the game I realized that I had used Auxiliary Shield teams wrong, as I had put the shields up to 2 from the start so must remember not to do that next time. I’m trying to get my son to take it steady as well, so that he doesn’t have to go charging in on turn 1. This will come with time. Other than that, an enjoyable game. I will try to advise him to keep the twin ISD setup so he doesn’t get confused by trying to learn a new set of ships, as we both keep forgetting about certain upgrades. We also play on a piece of 4’x3’ ply , so the cards are off to one side and not easily viewable during the game.we do have an old 5’x3.5’ board but it’s stuck in the garage unfortunately. Anyway, hope you enjoyed it all!
  4. Sorry, strange title is from a recent fleet build where I had a title change request from Muelmuel. I took my son on in a typical Rebel vs Imperial game. As he’s only 9, we don’t play objectives, I try to add onto him about an extra 50 points, and always give him choice of first or second (invariably he goes first lol). These are the lists, on the game, on a whim, I swapped out OE on my MC75 for C&S. This put me at 401, but hey, he was at 450 anyway. The action is as best as I can remember it. ISD Kuat Refit (112) • Admiral Screed (26) • Ordnance Experts (4) • Quad Laser Turrets (5) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Assault Concussion Missiles (7) • Avenger (5) = 166 Points ISD Cymoon 1 Refit (112) • Wulff Yularen (7) • Intensify Firepower! (6) • Gunnery Team (7) • XI7 Turbolasers (6) • Spinal Armament (9) • Relentless (3) = 150 Points Raider I (44) • Ordnance Experts (4) • External Racks (3) = 51 Points Gozanti Cruisers (23) • Comms Net (2) • Vector (2) = 27 Points Squadrons: • Howlrunner (16) • 5 x TIE Fighter Squadron (40) = 56 Points Total Points: 450 MC75 Ordnance Cruiser (100) • General Rieekan (30) • Strategic Adviser (4) • Ordnance Experts (4) • Hardened Bulkheads (5) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Expanded Launchers (13) • Assault Proton Torpedoes (5) = 168 Points Nebulon-B Support Refit (51) • Auxiliary Shields Team (3) • Quad Battery Turrets (5) = 59 Points Nebulon-B Support Refit (51) • Auxiliary Shields Team (3) • Quad Battery Turrets (5) = 59 Points Nebulon-B Support Refit (51) • Projection Experts (6) = 57 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Leia Organa (3) • Comms Net (2) = 23 Points Squadrons: • Shara Bey (17) • Tycho Celchu (16) = 33 Points Total Points: 399 Below is a picture at the end of turn one: - I forgot to take a photo at the start so got it after turn one. I had deployed from my left to right Neb B, Project Expert Neb B, Neb B. These where in a V formation all at speed 1. Then the MC75, Shara and Tycho in the debris field, and the GR75 both at speed 2. The plan was for everything to slow roll forward, lots of Conc fire from the two QBT Nebs, and lots of healing from the repair Neb. I had set the first dials on all three to Nav, and then intended to Repair virtually every turn after that with the Project Expert Neb. The MC75 was set to Nav, Nav, Conc Fire. The GR75 was set to Sqn command. My sons ships from his left to right was the Kuat, Cymoon, Raider and Gozanti. He placed all his Ties clustered near the Gozanti. Turn one was the Gozanti sending two Ties forward at speed 5 (Vector!) and move at speed 2. I then activated the GR75, and sent my A Wings from one rock to another, moving them over with plans to engage the Ties in the future. Next was the Raider, pushed up to speed 3. I felt I’d messed up my deployment by having my Neb formation the wrong side of my MC75, so I activated my right hand Neb, and increased the speed to 2, and tried to orientate it to the ISD’s. This unfortunately put it in the possible path of my MC75. The rest of the moves had me moving my other Nebs up, and then last my MC75 up, and rather than change speed to avoid the collision, I kept it at 2, as with hardened bulkheads it wouldn’t pick up a damage card. Amazingly it missed my Nebulon by less than 1mm! The ISD’s both increased to speed 3 and Moved up both out of range. The remaining Ties then moved up to join Howlrunner. Turn 2 started with an increase in speed For the ISD’s and the Cymoon moved into red range of the Neb and the MC75. I think he made a mistake with his deployment and should have had the Kuat on the inside and rolled it forward at speed 1 to have them both hit me on turn 3 or 4, but he has two speeds in this game, top and stop lol. I fired my Neb at his Cymoon, this caused some shield damage which he redirected. My second shot whiffed against his Raider and he evaded the only hit. I then crashed into his Cymoon and stayed in place. He activated his Gozanti and moved Howlrunner and a support Tie up to the flank of my Nebs. I countered this in the squad phase with Shara to engage them. I then activated my Project Expert Neb, and fed 2 shields up to the injured Neb, and had a shot at the Gozanti scattered. The Kuat moved up, then I placed the GR75 in its path to block it getting to the MC75. His Raider then moved up, and I then fired my MC75 at his Cymoon with ineffective reds. I this time hit my Neb, just giving the Neb a damage card due to my hardened bulkheads. My last Nebulon did some flak and tried to hit the Gozanti but the only hit was evaded. The end of turn 2 looked like this: - Turn 3 saw the Cymoon utterly destroy the Nebulon in front of it, and put some serious shield damage and I think a damage card onto the MC75. Due to Rieekan, much to my sons surprise (he isn’t up to speed on all the cards), the Nebulon was zombified and stayed in place. I activated the zombie Nebulon next as I wanted to catch the Raider before it scooted away, putting a red and two blue from the side with QBT’s. These where easily braced and reduced the front shield I think to 0. The next shot at the Cymoon was 3 red and two blue (Conc fire) which was redirected to the side. A cheeky damage card each followed with the ram (I hope I played that right). His Raider activated and (This is where it gets a bit hazy lol) he shot at my PE Neb from the side and caused some shield damage. He then fired an obstructed shot at my MC75 with his Ex Racks and piled on some damage cards so I had about 1 hull left! He then hopped over me into my right arc. As the damage cards where getting issued out, it was one of those jaw dropping moments when I was thinking, “ I wasn’t expecting that!”. Without further ado, I then activated my MC75. I used a banked token to increase the speed to 3. Then double arced the Cymoon with 2 blue and 6 black from the front, and 3 red 2 black from the side. The Cymoon I think may have been reduced down to 0 shields and 1 hull left as well when all was done. The MC75 now at speed 3 got out of dodge. During this turn, the GR75 was destroyed (I was hoping to use it as a speed bump for the Kuat but alas no), and also the Gozanti. I put some Flak into the Tie blob and scored some hits. During the Sqn phase, Shara managed to remove I think two Ties especially with her counter ability. She was at the end destroyed, but she was worth it with the rest of the Ties being on either 1 or 2 hull left. For my last move, I put Tycho in your replace Shara so the blob couldn’t move. More to follow.
  5. My son is 9, and for his up and coming 10th birthday, he wants a core set, and a MC80. We had a game on Father's Day, my triple Nebs and MC75 + support vs a double ISD, Raider, Gozanti and Tie list (my 401 vs his 450). Great game. I got some photos and might make a bat rep if I can remember it all and have time. My daughter would rather watch a movie. Sigh.
  6. This is my opinion. I don't think for Sato that your MC30's have the correct setup. They only have two Reds, so change that to black for long range. If the enemy ship has an evade, then you've already lost one dice. I'd swap Ex Racks for APT's, so if a Crit goes through, is a face up damage card at long range. I wouldn't use Advance Projectors either. I'd use this for a MC30 personally: - MC30c Scout Frigate (69)• Intel Officer (7)• Ordnance Experts (4)• Assault Proton Torpedoes (5)= 85 Points Add any titles as you see fit. There is the possibility of putting Spinals on for two long range blacks from the front as well as the sides, with the possibility of APT's triggering but this is getting too expensive in my opinion. Into Officer is to cover the evade if a ship has them. Although I've not used Malee, getting this special effect to happen loses you one of your two long range dice if you don't roll a Crit/hit. I'd ditch this and get Tycho, and use the points to upgrade your ex racks to APT's. I'd prefer another A Wing as well for the range, whether it be Shara or a generic. I don't think Yavaris is the best title either for your Neb. If you are going to have one, then it's Salvation to double up your Crits (which will pop up more on your black dice). I'd get rid of BCC/Expanded hangar as well, you need Sqns to proc Sato, and to glue up enemy squadrons so I'd change them to something else. You are correct in that you need another ship.
  7. It’s never gonna let me cry. With Leia and hardened bulk heads as well?
  8. On my next outing, decided on Rieekan, as needed someone to help me out as I seem to always be going second, and don’t quite have the experience of getting the enemy to drift into my killing arcs. So, Rieekans Road Roller:- Commander: General Rieekan Assault: Advanced Gunnery Defense: Fighter Ambush Navigation: Superior Positions MC75 Ordnance Cruiser (100) • General Rieekan (30) • Strategic Adviser (4) • Ordnance Experts (4) • Electronic Countermeasures (7) • Expanded Launchers (13) • Assault Proton Torpedoes (5) • Aspiration (3) = 166 Points Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57) • Heavy Fire Zone (4) • Yavaris (5) = 66 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points Squadrons: • Corran Horn (22) • Shara Bey (17) • Tycho Celchu (16) • Norra Wexley (17) • 3 x Y-wing Squadron (30) • 2 x X-wing Squadron (26) = 128 Points Total Points: 400 Options: - Thinking of swapping Exp Launchers for Ex Racks to get Leia on a GR75 and Hardened Bulkheads. My plan with the squadrons is to send in Shara and Tycho first with Corran joining them on a token or as a Rogue. Then, the same with two pairs of Y wings with an X Wing each either as a token too, or just to move up with the Squadron move to provide cover from enemy fighters. Then try to soften up the target, and the MC75 to go squash it flat. Not sure if Corran is a wise choice, would Shara and Tycho be able to wither a fighter blob for a couple of turns on their own? If so could get in BCC or Toryn as well. Any thoughts on my objectives too?
  9. Not a Starhawk expert ( don’t even own one yet), but from what I’ve read it looks a bit light. Also unless the star Hawk is going to Sqn Command, you will have Shara and Tycho stuck moving in the Sqn phase unless you give your cr90’s a command. Have you considered dropping one of them to get a GR75 and extra upgrades for you star Hawk? You could throw in Shara and Tycho (with corran as well with a token) to help glue up one enemy Sqn group then rogue Ketsu and Dash. I’d personally change the sqns too but too tired to look into it now lol.
  10. Along with the penalty of spending the attackers defence tokens to simulate the “leak back” of power onto the attacker when using this Subjugator super weapon lol.
  11. This used to be my Ackbar MC30 set up, either 1 Scout and 2 Torps or vice versa. MC30c Scout Frigate (69) • Admiral Ackbar (38) • Intel Officer (7) • External Racks (3) • Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) • Admonition (8) = 132 Points MC30c Scout Frigate (69) • Intel Officer (7) • External Racks (3) • Turbolaser Reroute Circuits (7) = 86 Points MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63) • Ordnance Experts (4) • External Racks (3) • Enhanced Armament (10) = 80 Points Sensor teams would be a good choice for a Torp Frigate as well. On one attack, 3 red, 2 blue and 5 black. No rerolls unfortunately though, that’s why if no sensor teams then Ord experts for me every time.
  12. I’d try to get engine techs on your Liberty, as you need that front arc pointing at the enemy due to your weak sides. Also, if you only have two bombers then bcc isn’t worth it. I like your MC30 set up, but I’m trying Foresight and Shield Techs instead just recently . Lando is a good fit there with Admo though. Welcome to the game as well!
  13. So Mothma was a good choice of commander with what I had. 3 x MC30’s, Jaina’s Light and Two slicer GR75’s with Shara and Tycho. Unfortunately I was up against my son, so I let him go first, didn’t bother with objectives, and added Howlrunner, 3 Ties and 2 Tie Bombers onto his list which was my Screed Kuat, Demi, 2 Raiders and an Assault Gozanti. Going second was hard for me to get in and do much damage, and I only ever rolled one black crit the whole game. He didn’t lol. I ended up losing but all three MC30’s survived. Might try Ex Racks instead of APT’s next time. Below is a photo of the action! Space looks slightly like our kitchen table lol. This is at the end of turn three I believe. The GR75’s where placed to stop the Kuat and Demo from moving. One didn’t survive this encounter (unfortunately no pension plan in my navy lol). I think the Kuat was also just out of black range from the MC30, and on Demo, I rolled 2 black hits, no crits, and a blank black, followed by a blank black with Ord Experts. Jainas Light couldn’t use TRC’s either as all it’s defence tokens were exhausted, and I had a face up damage card saying I couldn’t spend exhausted defence tokens. A good game all in all though!
  14. I’ve not tried it but I think Foresight with Expert Shield Techs and Mothma looks good! I’m hoping to try it out tomorrow night, but unfortunately only with 3 MC30’s as that’s what I have at the moment.
