  1. From speaking to the shops its the former.
  2. It may not be in its death bed yet, but just looking at the lack of models available in shops in the SW of the UK, it's certainly not out of its sick bed.

    Screed + 2xISDII + GSD

    Demo struggles going second, you really need a decent bid IMO.

    SLOANE DEFENDER TIE

    Had a bit of success with this list, 2 ISD's with Sloane is a nice combo. Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 399/400 Commander: Admiral Sloane Assault Objective: Blockade Run Defence Objective: Fighter Ambush Navigation Objective: Superior Positions [ flagship ] Imperial I-Class Star Destroyer (110 points) - Admiral Sloane ( 24 points) - Flight Controllers ( 6 points) - Expanded Hangar Bay ( 5 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) - X17 Turbolasers ( 6 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 159 total ship cost Imperial Star Destroyer Kuat Refit (112 points) - Avenger ( 5 points) - Gunnery Team ( 7 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) - External Racks ( 3 points) = 138 total ship cost 1 "Howlrunner" ( 16 points) 1 Colonel Jendon ( 20 points) 1 Valen Rudor ( 13 points) 1 Ciena Ree ( 17 points) 1 "Mauler" Mithel ( 15 points) 1 Maarek Steele ( 21 points) = 102 total squadron cost

    SLOANE DEFENDER TIE

    I love a Raider lifeboat, but it's not for everyone.
  8. I can see it from both sides, yes it's 44 points you could spend on offence, but if you are spending 110+ points on Sqns and 24 on Sloane, even if your 2 big ships die, and Quasars die easily, you still have 68 points on the Raider with Sloane and whatever Sqns are still alive vs what you managed to kill. Like I said it's my opinion, but it has worked for me, where adding 2 Gozantis for Sqns and padding has been tabled, a lot. I have brought the Raider around the back to finish off some stragglers as well. Sloanes Less risk raider Author: Tackleberry Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 399/400 Commander: Admiral Sloane Assault Objective: Blockade Run Defense Objective: Contested Outpost Navigation Objective: Superior Positions Quasar Fire I-class Cruiser-Carrier (54 points) - Flight Commander ( 3 points) - Flight Controllers ( 6 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) - Expanded Hangar Bay ( 5 points) = 72 total ship cost Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer (120 points) - Gunnery Team ( 7 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) - Electronic Countermeasures ( 7 points) - X17 Turbolasers ( 6 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) = 148 total ship cost [ flagship ] Raider I-Class Corvette (44 points) - Admiral Sloane ( 24 points) = 68 total ship cost 1 Colonel Jendon ( 20 points) 1 Maarek Steele ( 21 points) 1 Dengar ( 20 points) 1 Valen Rudor ( 13 points) 1 Ciena Ree ( 17 points) 1 Whisper ( 20 points) = 111 total squadron cost
  9. If you have a large portion of your points tied up in Sqns, but just 2 big targets to kill the 46 + points in the 2 Gozantis are good for activation padding, but with the last change, a tabling is a real possibility. Stick Sloane on the cheapest non-flotilla ship and run her away to stay alive, not much catches a speed 4 Raider1 running away. Even if you lose the Quasar and ISD you can still win or at keeping the loss to a manageable one 5-6 or 4-7 rather than a 1-10 to try to claw back from. Just my opinion, I have found it to work.

    Do VSDs need an overhaul?

    Oops. A Demo Quadruple tap with that upgrade got me a little moist for a moment. Don't worry sanity has returned.

    Do VSDs need an overhaul?

    Or Demolisher.....
  12. Its why I always look to put a Raider Lifeboat in most lists now.

    Do VSDs need an overhaul?

    Oh yes please.
  14. Tried an ISD Quasar Sloane list at a store champs in Cardiff earlier this year, got tabled 3 times. Only 2 ships to kill and the Quasar is not hard to kill. Personally, I would swap out the 2 Gozantis for a Raider 1 Lifeboat, but that's just my take.
