New Tantive IV preview article is up — last before it officially releases

Recommended Posts

Raymus looks awesome, on either the Tantive or a Transport! He looks super useful if you have a feeling you know what the enemy movement might be like~

 

Also, kinda cool that all the crew cards are headed by women. Kinda neat for equal opportunity~ :D

Sensor Team is going to be lovely with a Weapon Engineer.

EDIT: And that will be fun with Han Solo's crew card.

There must be one at least one more team. The Tantive IV title adds a fourth crew slot, but the three listed are all either Limited or don't benefit from multiples.

Not to piss anyone off, but 100% female =/= "equal" ... it's a bias... Just sayin'...

Meh. There's as many female characters on these crew cards as there were in the entire original film trilogy.

I think this new article just furthers the likelihood that those Han and Leia cards we've seen are fakes.  Well done fakes (outside of the glaring misspelling issue and non-FFG format of a power that changes a rule), but fakes non-the-less.

Why do you say that?  If the same person accurately spoiled the crew cards that were just now released to the public, then chances are that he has inside info.  Which would mean the Han/Leia cards are MORE likely to be real.

Time will tell, but I just don't believe that FFG would allow the mistakes that are present on those cards to be published as is.  I hope I'm right too, as both of those cards are disappointing at best.

to be fair, Sensor team MAY have a male alien in it... And Gunnery team appears to have two  :P "Team" usually means more than one person involved. But hey, Who doesn't want an all-female crewed blockade runner?  :lol:

 

Would explain the accuracy penalties wouldn't it? *ducks*

I will grant you Liea, but Han is going to be deadly on a Corvette with Weapon Specialist and Sensor Team. The ability to take two target locks at Range 5 and spend them for either rerolls or Focus with 4-5 dice attacks is going to be fantastic. Edited by PhantomFO

The first two instances of Maneuver have the U and E reversed.

So they say it can possibly take up to four attack per round, but 3 of those cost at least one energy.  How often are you going to be able to do that.  I don't know.  I am liking the Tantive more than the Transport simply because I would rather kill my enemies than screw with them.  Sure the Tantive is going to cost three times as much the transport.

 

But I am super psyched.  I have been saving b-day money since January to buy this thing.

The pictures never match the article huh? I wonder if the guys are is purposely blocking the transport to give the corvette the whole spotlight.

On a side note, can you just run one half the corvette?

It's going to depend on energy gen, which will be dial dependent. The Vette can at least pre-charge it's guns, so you can have two energy apiece on each weapon, plus another five banked on the Aft card.

And I only count six Tie fighters against a 300 point list...how the Rebel ships are oriented those Ties won't last a round.
