    Best Crew for Tie Phantoms

    I put Sloane on Echo the other day and she brings the pain. Vader seems good on both named. Kallus seems meh.

    Is the 2.0 Core Set really required?

    See, this I can get behind.

    Is the 2.0 Core Set really required?

    So what's the difference between Applied Perspective effectively drawing on lines and someone doing themselves with precision and steady hand? Don't want to knock on AP, but most people should be able to do this themselves. This is what I plan on doing until I get my own acrylic templates or the core set. And if you have such an issue with their templates, @direweasel, you should just let them use your templates to ensure they aren't cheating. Walking away would be a melodramatic, dickish, unwelcoming thing to do. Don't be a ****.

    A New Era Begins... FFG Website Squad Builder Online!

    Ah ha! It appears that you can export your squad list to a PDF for printing! It includes a QR scanny thing in the corner and HALF-HEALTH maths and explicit threshold counts for when each ship is actually to half health! I'm impressed! It also seems to be very printer friendly, which is awesome. The browser version also allows lists to be shared directly to Facebook, Twitter, and the Forums. Here's a test run: <b>TIE/ph Phantom - “Whisper” - 66</b></br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;•“Whisper” - <i>Soft-Spoken Slayer</i> (52)</br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Juke (4)</br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Admiral Sloane (10)</br> </br> <b>TIE/ln Fighter - Iden Versio - 41</b></br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;•Iden Versio - <i>Inferno Leader</i> (40)</br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Crack Shot (1)</br> </br> <b>TIE/ln Fighter - Gideon Hask - 31</b></br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;•Gideon Hask - <i>Inferno Two</i> (30)</br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Crack Shot (1)</br> </br> <b>TIE/ln Fighter - Del Meeko - 31</b></br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;•Del Meeko - <i>Inferno Three</i> (30)</br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Crack Shot (1)</br> </br> <b>TIE/ln Fighter - Seyn Marana - 31</b></br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;•Seyn Marana - <i>Inferno Four</i> (30)</br> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Marksmanship (1)</br> </br> <b>Total: 200</br> </b></br> <a href="https://squadbuilder.fantasyflightgames.com/squad-preview/bc27e3f4-1742-408a-a29f-71ef2ca0e319">View in the X-Wing Squad Builder</a> This doesn't seem to work as intended.

    The mobile app is reportedly "coming soon to iOS and Android" according to this article. I suspect I'll spend more time using the browser version.

    It actually looks pretty nice in a web browser. There are a few different gamemodes included with different restrictions. Otherwise I think it looks pretty nice. Well done, FFG!

    I Need Mrs. Rick to Beat Me....

    Dallas Parker from the Mynock Squadron Podcast reported in one the most recent episodes that he's currently running 5 Alpha Sq Pilots (Interceptors) + Wampa. It's swarmy, has a lot of dice and has a lot of options. Wampa has a situational 3 Dice attack, so that could potentially satisfy some of her preferences. If you don't have enough Interceptors, Planetary Sentinels can be swapped in at the same cost. I did just come up with this list. One may get a headache flying it, though. Echo (50) Juke (4) Admiral Sloane (10) Alpha Sq. Pilot (34) x2 [68] Planetary Sentinel (34) x2 [68] Everyone has at least 3 attack dice, it's reasonable (because who has 5 TIE Interceptors?), a should be nasty squirrelly. Sloane also punishes those who attack ships before Echo, but the other 4 ships will get to anyone trying to target Echo. This might be the first thing I throw on the table...

    Yeah... Heavy swarm lists should be good against yours. Barrage Rocket Bombers are easy to fly, easy to choose actions on. Low stress, and now cheap enough to slot a pocket ace or two named TIE Fighter pilots in. Bombers will also survive Vynder's alpha without much issue. Otherwise I think strong lists against yours will be things like Khiraxz Fighters, X-Wings, TIE Swarm. Allow her to have a lot of concentrated firepower and if she's flying well, she'll eat those three for lunch.

    Freightful Four. It's for real.

    Translation: Pretty sure @Cloaker ran 4 Scum YT-1300's, probably bare. The new Falcon dial is very similar to the 1.0 Lancer dial, so easy transition from 1.0 Lancer to 2.0 Scum Falcon. The other stuff? Extraneous.

    Number of ships in a list - what are you seeing?

    In my Imperial lists I feel a bit under-gunned if I don't have 4 ships on the table. Even with a Defender, a 3 ship list seems pretty fragile for the Empire and doesn't seem to have a lot of synergistic options unless a Phantom or Lambda is in the list with an expensive crew member. Most of my Imperial lists are leaning toward the mini-swarm + Ace or 2 Ace + 2 Filler archetype.

    Surgical Suggestions

    I've had good luck gluing clipped pegs onto the hulls of ships so far. Just make sure you sand it down smooth before trying to glue it on; it'll save you glued fingers and some frustration.

    Rexler Brath's looking for friends

    I really like the idea of this I5's squad: Rexler Brath (84) Juke (4) Advanced Sensors (8) Duchess (42) Predator (2) Tomax Bren (34) Crack Shot (1) Barrage Rockets (6) Fifth Brother (12) This gives you a 7 point bid and all I5 pilots. If you like Duchess more, you could throw Fifth Bro as her Gunner instead of TB. Otherwise the other two named Strikers could be solid wingmen built lean. Or Hask, Meeko, and Seyn for a few more bodies on the table. I don't really have any issue with Outmaneuver, I think RB will get more mileage out of Juke.

    Tie Punisher 2.0 Discussion Thread

    This list is doing a lot of work, each ship pulling quite a bit of weight. But you could drop the Prox and Seismics for Proton Bombs, maybe shuffle some other stuff to fit Rexler Brath. He's a monster and really gets a lot of mileage out of Juke.
