Han List with new crew cards??

8 posts in this topic

Is anyone using the new Crew cards for Han - YT1300? Specifically crew card Han Solo, CP30 from the Tantive IV?

 

Or is Gunner, Luke & Chewie still the best options?

Well, you can't use Han Crew with Han Pilot, but Han Crew can make you a little more likely to hit on any ship, as it adds some extra flexibility to your Target Lock.  C3PO can also help any Falcon.  Guaranteeing one evaded hit per turn can go farther than most realize.  It can also result in 2 evades on an attack with 1 die if you spend a focus or evade token.  C3PO+Chewbacca crew can definitely help with the longevity of Han or Lando in the pilot seat. R2-D2 Crew could also help out, but I wouldn't put it on Chewbacca, as its effect is counter productive to Chewie's Pilot Ability.  Now, R2-D2 AND Chewie Crew in the same Falcon can also keep you on the table much longer.

An upgrade I would be curious to try on Han if I don't take gunner (cause I want to take 3PO and Chewie) and plan on using the evade action, is Predator. It would give more liberty in combinaison with his natural ability.

 

You roll 3 dice:

-3 hits: all is fine, you keep it

-2 hits: Reroll the miss with Predator

-1 hit: Reroll both miss if shooting a PS1-2 ship or, depending on the situation, reroll either all dice or just 1.

-0 hit: Reroll all dice

 

You roll 4 dice in range 1:

-4 hits: yay!

-3 hits: Reroll the miss with Predator

-2 hits: Reroll both miss if shooting a PS1-2 ship or, depending on the situation, reroll either all dice or just 1.

-1 hit: Reroll all dice

-0 hit: Reroll all dice

Given my penchant for rolling blanks when I Focus, and Focus when I have a Target Lock, the Han crew card might be just what I need.

Heck, I stopped using Chewie when Wave 3 hit.

 

My go-to HSF build is 
Han + PTL + Recon Specialist + Millennium Falcon Title + Gunner

 

Recon Spec lets you focus both attacks, like Marksmanship would in the original build. It also lets you use unnecessary focii for defense, which Marksmanship would not.

 

Using PTL and MF Title to evade 3 times is already a better deal than Chewbacca, as you've basically added 3 hp to your ship instead of 2 at that point. You will do this more than 3 times.

 

Similarly, C3-P0 is a better defensive deal than Chewbacca, partially because he costs less.

 

Now, of all of the spoiled-but-not-yet-released Crew members, the one I'm most excited about using with Han is Kyle Katarn. My EPT of choice would then be Expert Handling, by the way.

  1. Barrel-roll into Range 1 of victim.
  2. Massive damage.
  3. Do a green maneuver.
  4. Gain free focus token.
  5. Goto :(1)

I'm liking those options must give them a try. What support ships are you using the old faithful rookie X's?

Yeah, I designed it as a direct replacement for Han+Gunner+Marksmanship+Chewbacca. My build costs the same points :)

 

Now, If I wanted different escorts, I would NOT go with B-Wings. They have the same vulnerability as the YT-1300, so a build that's effective against one is against all.

 

Other viable 3-attack options to me would be:

Rookie Pilot (21)

Green Squadron Pilots with Opportunist and Chaardan Refit (21 points)

HWK-290 + Blaster Turret + Recon Specialist (23 points, so to run a Pair, I'd need Chewbacca instead of Solo).--
