  1. 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!?
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. This is a list archetype that I really like the look of. What has been working for people in the ace slot? I'm considering Vader, or perhaps a missile Tomax Bren. I did have some success with Deathfire and the three named strikers. He can add a bit of splash damage with a missile then go into bomb mode. It was fun to fly.
  6. I've never met a Mynock and I don't live in America. Yet I still found myself strangely moved when Ryan won his store championship. I suppose I'm trying to say you stay with a podcast for the people.
  7. I really like this idea and I'm constantly drawn to it, but I've had a lot of fun flying a TIE SF + FO Ace list. Backdraft, Omega Leader, Zeta Leader and an Epsilon Squadron pilot works beautifully and it's amazing how few people know how to deal with a blocking PS1 pilot
  8. I'm a huge fan of the guys running our big European events, but today was a disaster. I had to drop to get to my hotels late check in and, to be honest, I was so bored waiting for action it was a relief. How does this happen?

  10. I have to highlight the guy running Zuckuss, Old T and Fenn WITHOUT mindlink. All at PS9. I really love that
  11. Fair point! I was flying Backdraft with FCS + targeting synch. It wrecked face, most of the guys at the tournament seemed very unprepared for the accuracy of Tomax's shots. But, there was a lot of deliberating, re-reading the cards and FAQ etc about spending it on primary attack rerolls. I really did not enjoy that and the sense of scepticism. It is a very effective synergy, however.
  12. Bringing TLT to Imperials is an inexplicable design move, in my opinion. The turret dynamic is already the dullest aspect of the game (again, I respect that others may feel differently), and if they become a staple of Imperial lists as well then the game will lose all its diversity. I hope I'm wrong. Unguided rockets however.... well anything to help TIE Bombers is good, right?
  13. Yep, I recently won a small tournament using that combo. A LOT of my opponents moaned about targeting synchroniser - it seems like a little understood card and people are still questioning the FAQ. I'm looking for a similar effect without the confusion. I agree though that it provides a big boost to the bomber as a way of providing action economy.
  14. Hi all, thoughts on the following list would be greatly appreciated. Trying hard to make a bomber centric list. Rexlar Brath w/ Predator, TIE D, Tractor Beam 41 pts Tomax Bren w/ Homing Missile, guidance chips, extra munitions, crack shot 32 pts Deathfire w/ LRS, concussion missile, conner net, extra munitions Rexlar is my choice because at PS8 he can take predator for rerolls and still fire before Tomax to reduce agility and carry out tractor beam shenanigans. I've played one Vassal game with it and bullied Miranda with the tractor beam. Any tips would be appreciated!
  15. I'm curious as to how the list with two named bombers does. I've always assumed that this would be a struggle, am I wrong?
