  1. Tomax Bren - Ideas

    There is a lot going on there! Let us know how you do? And good luck!
  2. Tomax Bren - Ideas

    Very nice. In all honesty, I worry that bombers simply can’t survive in the current meta. The solution seems to be a Draw Their Fire Quickdraw type list. I suppose I’m hoping that there are other variants I haven’t considered.
  3. Tomax Bren - Ideas

    Back when Imp Vets was released, the pilot that immediately drew my attention was Tomax Bren. Not in shuttle form as a support ship, but as a pure battering ram. Crack shot, missiles to flavour, and you have yourself a lethal but fragile ship. A quick glance at meta wing shows that success has come for Bren generally when paired with targeting synchroniser Quickdraw plus one. My first and only tournament win came with this pair and Omega Leader. This gives him the action economy to make sure he hits hard, navigates around countermeasures and black one if QD has FCS, and provides other high priority targets to take the heat off. Outside of this archetype my experiments have generally failed. I’d love to hear how you guys fly your Bren. I’m particularly interested to hear about the humble bomber making waves in competitive play. Is he lost without his buddy Quickdraw??
  4. Unfinished business- VaderQuizSabacc

    Sound advice. With Sabacc, he is absolutely the bait, who of ignored can punch through some damage. Switching to crack shot and putting harpoons on Quiz seems to be a very sensible adjustment though.
  5. Last year I went to Yavin as a new player with a Vader/Inquisitor/Sabacc list. I was super green, the list was not optimal (juke Quiz and swarm leader Sabacc!?) and I got 1 win. Part of me wants to roll with the same ships and see if I can do better 1 year later. How do you like the load out here? Yavin Mk II (99) •The Inquisitor (34) - TIE Adv. Prototype Push The Limit (3), Proton Rockets (3), TIE/v1 (1), Autothrusters (2) •Darth Vader (38) - TIE Advanced Veteran Instincts (1), Cruise Missiles (3), TIE/x1 (0), Engine Upgrade (4), Advanced Targeting Computer (5) •"Pure Sabacc" (27) - TIE Striker Predator (3), Adaptive Ailerons (0), Lightweight Frame (2)
  6. Cruise Missile Ninjas!!!

    I really like them. They are super powerful, but they aren’t broken due to the challenge of the set up. I feel far more comfortable using them than harpoons. What good cruise missile lists are people using?
  7. Vader, Quickdraw , And? Need advice ...

    I flew Vader and QD with Duchess for the store champs season. Duchess maintains the high PS of the squad, allows you to properly load out the other two, and is insanely fun to fly. Of course, you lose a significant amount of offensive output, so the squad flies a little differently to the ones above.
  8. TIE D / TIE Bomber / TIE Striker

    That is interesting. Never seen a quickdraw loaded up like that, almost as a dedicated support ship. Not even LWF!
  9. TIE D / TIE Bomber / TIE Striker

    Yes OL is the obvious choice! I've flown her too many times though, it's time for a change. I think the other way to take this list could be to use Quickdraw in place of Rexlar with some upgrades to support Tomax and Sabacc, like targeting synchroniser / draw their fire / decoy. I know that has been used to good effect before with a TIE D instead of Tomax but, again, he's a guilty pleasure. I imagine the list will live or die based on whether the alpha strike can get ships off the board as it will melt to concentrated fire.
  10. TIE D / TIE Bomber / TIE Striker

    Great advice guys, thank you all. I guess VI Vessery works well in the list with an Ion Cannon, but that's where I would prefer a TL ship in the third slot which a Striker can't do. I just really love the Striker!
  11. I would be very grateful for any feedback on this list. My guess is that it lacks defense, but damage output should be very high. "Duchess" — TIE Striker 23 Crack Shot 1 Lightweight Frame 2 Adaptive Ailerons 0 Ship Total: 26 Tomax Bren — TIE Bomber 24 Crack Shot 1 Extra Munitions 2 Harpoon Missiles 4 Guidance Chips 0 Ship Total: 31 Rexler Brath — TIE Defender 37 Expertise 4 Tractor Beam 1 Twin Ion Engine Mk. II 1 TIE/D 0 Ship Total: 43
  12. Wave 12 Announced!

    Why would I be trolling? This is a thread about wave 12 and I offered a personal opinion. I don't know what these ships are, more or less didn't know what any of the wave 11 ships were, and I probably won't buy any of them. I'm sure there are others who had a similar reaction. I'm pleased for those fans who do know what are and are excited. Personal preference, eh!?
  13. Wave 12 Announced!

    I hate to moan but they look awful. This game is becoming unrecognisably Star Wars in design, and I say that as someone who is loving playing it.
  14. Wave 12 Announced!

    I consider myself a pretty big Star Wars nerd, but... what are these ships? One is a new version of a ship we have and... two made up ones? Do we need to make ships up now?
  15. I love these ships. I recognise there will be tough match-ups in this meta, but I just want to fly what I love. With that in mind, I would appreciate any constructive advice on load out or strategy for a SC on Sunday. Tomax is almost like Biggs, he will die but if he can fire off any missiles he causes serious damage. Ion missiles on Vader is a meta call to try to tie down Nym. Vader w/ Adaptability, TIE X1, Ion pulse missiles, ATC, EU Tomax w/ crack shot, homing missiles, ion boms, guidance chimps, extra munitions Duchess w/ VI, adaptive aeilerons, lightweight frame. 97 points, small bid Thanks guys
