  1. Is it wrong to use a Liberty model on aHome One base. Obviously I couldn't do this for a Tourney, but they are both MC80s, and I love the look of the Liberty SO much more than the Home One.

I'm going to be playing the game tonight. While I would play my Bomber fleet like any carrier fleet (keeping the ships just out of combat with other ships, but close enough to support squadrons), I plan to charge forward with this fleet. The AFII and GR-75s will have Squadron commands to bring up the A Wings and Z-95s (with one squadron getting left behind unless I have a token banked [very likely]). I want to make good use of the speed and maneuverability I have. Get in the rear arcs of my opponents ships with the Corvettes. The Transports will be my main squadron activation platforms, and possibly a sacrificial blocker if needed. The Assault Frigate will mostly be using Squadron commands, split between Navs, and possibly Concentrate fire (and Engineering when needed).
  3. 100% agreed.
  4. I don't like it, because of you're engaged with one squad, you're bound to be engaged with a second one. I've never found a use for it (granted, I don't fly Grit squadrons a lot).
  5. DOH!! Lol, I completely forgot it had Grit! But still, it would have been nice if it had a little more power against squadrons.
  6. Before I begin, I want to say Nym is excluded from this. Ok, here we go. The Scurrg bomber seemed pretty darn cool to me. It could deliver B wing firepower against ship at speed 3, it has the Y wings 6 hull points, the Y wings squadron armament (not a good one) and heavy (also not good). After a small study, I realized the Scurrg is overpriced. It cost 6 points more than the Y wing, which has everything the Scurrg has except the Scurrg has a Black/Blue battery, while the Y wing only had Black. One additional Blue die is not justification for a 6 point increase. What are your thoughts?
  7. I like the fleet! But there are a few things that could be changed. Swap out Tantive IV for Jaina's Light, swap out redundant sheilds for Admonition, and lastly, swap out your generic X wing for another YT-1300. The B wings love those guys as Escorts more than the love X wings. Everything else looks good.
  8. I'll do that.

  10. Advanced Gunnery for you red. Use it on the MC80. Dangerous Territory for your blue. Jaina's Light can cruise through the obstacles. Capture the VIP for your yellow. Again, Jaina's Light works good with that one.

Bomber Wings Author: Admiral Attackbar Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 397/400 Commander: General Dodonna Assault Objective: Most Wanted Defense Objective: Fighter Ambush Navigation Objective: Superior Positions [ flagship ] Assault Frigate Mark II B(72 points) - General Dodonna ( 20 points) - Raymus Antilles ( 7 points) - Flight Controllers ( 6 points) - Expanded Hangar Bay ( 5 points) = 110 total ship cost Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57 points) - Yavaris ( 5 points) - Adar Tallon ( 10 points) = 72 total ship cost CR90 Corvette B (39 points) - Jainas Light ( 2 points) - SW 7 Ion Batteries ( 5 points) = 46 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) = 18 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) = 18 total ship cost 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) 1 Shara Bey ( 17 points) 1 Biggs Darklighter ( 19 points) 1 Gold Squadron ( 12 points) 3 X-Wing Squadrons ( 39 points) 3 Y-Wing Squadrons ( 30 points) Before anyone mentions it, the CR90 was initially a A variant, but I wanted to have some kind of weapon upgrade. This will be my first ever use of flying generic Y wings (and I've been playing for two years :D) . Let's run through the checklist: Interceptors- Check Escorts- Check Escortees (Y wings)-Check Relay- No, but not always needed. Intel-No. Drop Biggs for Jan Ors? And if anyone is wondering, my Shrimps and Corvettes fleet had minimal success. I lost the game, but I flew like a pro. **** Solar Corona messing with my SW-7s and H-9s! EDIT: A slightly revised version dropping Adar Tallon for BCC.

  12. If the Rebels get a repainted Quasar, the Empire better get repainted Nebulons. (This statement is coming from a Rebel player).
  13. Tomorrow night at 5pm, Armada will be played at GAME ON at the South Hill mall. Feel free to come!
  14. I'm not overly bent on first, but flying MC30cs means I have to have a little bid. My opponent doesn't really do bids. With 8 points, I have more than enough to get first. While I would like Lando on one of them, I don't want to risk the chance my friend will have a less points than I.
  15. I was choosing between Madine, Reekian and Mothama. I new with Madine I would be able to virtually do donuts around my opponent, but my ships could die quickly. With Reekian, I risked losing two or more ships a round, and with his nerf, thay wouldn't be good. I settled in Mothma because I don't use her much, and these ships relied on their Evades for survival.
