  1. Well Anikins ability pretty much requires you to be flying close to your opponent, getting into range 1, then using all the repositioning you could ever need you get a ship in bullseye. Those 2 dice have now become 3 dice and a focus. With a lock, some force/focus that's a good chance of 4 hits. Obi-Wan can do similar. Sure it won't happen every turn, but it doesn't have to.
  2. I've been thinking about something similar. I definitely think Callibrated is the way to go. Though I'm not convinced by Plo; I'm not a fan of transferring tokens like that. Anakin Skywalker (60) R4-P17 (5) Calibrated Laser Targeting (10) Ship total: 75 Half Points: 38 Threshold: 2 Obi-Wan Kenobi (53) Heightened Perception (3) R4 Astromech (2) Calibrated Laser Targeting (8) Ship total: 66 Half Points: 33 Threshold: 2 Barriss Offee (43) R4 Astromech (2) Synchronized Console (2) Ship total: 47 Half Points: 24 Threshold: 2 Total: 188 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Galactic Republic&d=v6!s=200!273:,214,200,:;278:72,5,200,:;275:,5,,211:&sn=Ani%2FObi%2FBarr&obs=
  3. This fellow is a hard hitting beasty tank. Vennie (62) Fire-Control System (2) Perceptive Copilot (8) Rey (14) Veteran Turret Gunner (6) Ship total: 92 Half Points: 46 Threshold: 6 Total: 92 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Resistance&d=v5!s!294:113,-1,54,187,90,-1,-1,-1:&sn=Unsaved Squadron&obs=
  4. Depends what you want to use it for. Competitively it won't do well, Han is really good but far too expensive, Wedge will die quickly and Han won't stand much of a chance on his own. Casually you'll probably have some fun with it though.
  5. In case anyone hasn't seen it, this was cleared up in the rules thread: And of course Outrider works with Dash.
  6. Exactly this! The ship still moved through an obstacle, this is a situation where we just need to do what it says on the card and stop over thinking it all. Did people not learn anything from the Tractor Beam/barrel roll fiasco from 1st edition??
  7. I've been toying with a very similar list except with Price Xizor instead of Thweek for the higher Pilot Skill. Haven't managed to get it on the table yet so I'm looking forward to people's input. Edit: although I had had forgotten that Thweek could copy PS as well as pilot ability. Definitely changing to Thweek.
  8. This is exactly how I interpreted this. You are hit by TLT before the dice are cancelled therefore the harpooned condition happens after taking 1 damage from TLT but before the dice are cancelled. Nothing to do with initiative, which would be hugely unfair.
  9. Fair enough, running out of focuses on Rey is certainly a problem. I'll run it a bit and see how it goes and keep C-3P0 is mind; it's a classic for a reason I guess.
  10. C-3P0 can guarantee 1 evade (choose 0 and then either roll a blank or an evade). This can guarantee 2 evades (evade action + 1 from Rey/Jan) and can give Poe an evade, all for one more point than 3P0. If not better it is at least as good.
  11. Rey is used with Jan to turn the banked focuses into evades, I will only take them as focuses if I'm stressed (when Expertise won't work). This seems better than C-3P0 to me. Plus the potential for Poe to have an evade is pretty huge. Why do you think C-3P0 would be better?
  12. What do you guys think to this list? Poe/Han (96) Poe Dameron (PS9) — T-70 X-Wing 33 Veteran Instincts 1 BB-8 2 Advanced Optics 2 Autothrusters 2 Black One 1 Ship Total: 41 Han Solo — YT-1300 46 Expertise 4 Rey 2 Jan Ors 2 Millennium Falcon 1 Ship Total: 55 https://geordanr.github.io/xwing/?f=Rebel Alliance&d=v4!s!196:27,-1,148,254:39:15:;36:220,-1,201,75:2:-1:&sn=Poe%2FHan&obs= Poe is fairly standard these days, BB-8 is there for the double target lock removal from Black One which I think is very important at the moment and I'm loving Advanced Optics, it really helps give Poe some options. Han is a little different with Jan Ors and Rey. Jan allows me to give an evade to Poe if he Focuses instead of TL and banking focuses with Rey means im actually also banking evades. This means Han can have 2 evades later in the game or get a focus when he is stressed. I think this Han is even more tanky than with C-3P0 and a point cheaper; speaking of which I like the bid, though 4 may be going too far but I honestly don't know what else to add, well other than Engine Upgrade but as I said, I like the bid.
  13. Brilliant, let us know how you do!
  14. Have you had a chance to fly this yet? Would love to get your opinion on it.
  15. Its fun to fly but not very forgiving - a couple of mistakes are going to cost you big. It's very nice having them all at PS 11. Some people will probably say this isn't needed but moving last and shooting first in any order you like is a great advantage. Fenn with M9-G8 and Weapons Engineer is a great combo (haven't tried him any other way) , giving the re-rolls makes targets locks a little less important meaning stress isn't as a big of a deal, allowing you to make more red maneuvers, especially on Poe. Though with BB8 and a boost action, Poe does very well without a lot of reds. It can really hit hard, Wedges ability is amazing, but Fenn and Wedge are not the most durable of ships, so it requires some good flying. Really you want your opponent to go after Fenn first as this gives you time to let Wedge shine. If Wedge is taken out before he's had much chance to do a lot of damage your going to find yourself lacking in fire power. Poe with BB8 and the Black One title make this great against alpha strikes. You can strip 2 target locks a turn, effectively shutting down missiles. If you can do a lot of damage quickly then you can dominate with this but if you get some unlucky rolls and it drags on, the ships just don't have the survivability. It's a fun list and I was considering taking it to regionals soon but I'm now trying out some new lists.
