XG-1 "Star Wing" Assault Gunboat Thread

Recommended Posts

I started a petition to get Obama to make it happen for you but none of you so called advocates signed it. 

 

That's because Obama is basically powerless at this point. So why bothering?

You need to convince Trump to force Disney into re-canonize the Gunboat, to make the Empire great again.

It is the best ship, no ship is as bestest as the Gunboat... We will make the best Gunboats.

Conan: "To crush your enemies -- See them driven before your gunboats, and to hear the lamentation of their women!"

Nice....cannon; like cgi cartoons are more central to the memories and entertainment experience of the generation of kids that propelled Star Wars into high iconic status than 'the game."

Seriously though, what do you guys think? Would you guys be willing to prepay for this project?

I'm sure if FFGs was the ones doing the Kickstarter, people would do it.

But nobody is going to back a fan project with no guarantee that FFGs would actually go through with it if the project succeeded.

None. It's missing a cannon slot, which is essential for depicting the gunboat. Your integrated Ions just aren't the same. It's essential because I wanted to use gunboats as slow cheap HLC carriers without dropping 30 points for them. Though I've been away from the game for a while, it still doesn't look like the Empire doesn't have something that does this. It's still the Firespray and TIE Defender isn't it?

 

I feel Gunboats should lean more on cannon upgrades than ordnance for that reason. We have TIE Bombers and TIE Punishers for massed missiles and bombs. The Defender is the only small cannon ship for the Empire, and it's kind of fragile for it's cost. I'd like to take Gunboats to crawl in on a flank and blast ships with HLCs like B-Wings were doing back in the beginning.

Lambda OGP w/ HLC is slow and 28pts, cheaper than Firespray or TIE-D

 

Heck, buy one now, and we'll even throw in a Collision Detector FREE! to help with asteroids and debris that you will likely be hitting since the Lambda flies like ass

I did forget about Lambdas... especially since Buzzsaw shuttles (Vader, HLC Shuttle) was a thing just before I stepped out of the game.

 

Still a large ship, Agility 1, no K-Turn. No ordnance. When I feel the Gunboat is slow, I mean X/Y-Wing slow, not bumbling slow.

 

I find it really appropriate that the shuttle is mentioned as a stand-in for the Gunboat, considering what the Gunboat was derived from and how both of them are cygnus spaceworks. I think the Escort Shuttle would also be great to replace the Imperial Firesprays.

Our experience with the Custom Cards League 1 showed the Gunboat is too powerful with the cannon slot.

No you can't make a kick starter for a game you don't own to add intellectual property you don't own either.

It was simply an analogy...that's all.

Regret%20is..._zpstd6olmld.png

I remember vets getting triggered by that pic. It is a very stupid analogy.

The highest chance to get the Gunboat is to convince Pablo Hidalgo to add it back to the canon. Or request for it to appear in Rebels to Dave Filoni.

Some kind of public request where fans can sign in showing their interest, then link it to someone's Twitter to grab their attention.

Once the ships appears, even as a cameo, in some canon product, FFG will perhaps use it.

It will not work in any other way.

Pablo hates the EU, the moron is the equivalent of Matt Ward getting a hold of core rulebook editing. You'd never get him to do anything unless the Rebels team wants to steal something else.

So...I've been thinking.

I've supported a couple of "Kickstarter" projects before, and I wonder if the same couldn't be done for the Assault Gunboat. I'm not suggesting an after market version - I would only want an official FFG approved, from their factory, they get the profit version. But what if we raised the money for FFG and handed them a "Hey FFG, here's a cheque for $x amount of dollars. Can you approve this thing now and give us our Gunboat please?"

I know I've brought this up once before (A long time ago, in a galax....) but! I can't give up ladies & gents! We must prevail, we must not give up! We must band together and get our Gunboat!!!!

Seriously though, what do you guys think? Would you guys be willing to prepay for this project?

[Edit: Fixed wrong link address]

I'm late but this popped at me. You can start a drive to get FFG to work on it, or Lucas Arts to add a gunboat somewhere. You just can't use a charity drive with for profit or corporate charity events because they will shut you down, just like the faarcefully created debacle with the Child's Play fundraiser to change Mass Effect 3's pathetic ending.

You also have to take into consideration if Lucas Arts or FFG even cares by that point. So if you're going to somehow acrue a large amount of money, become a a significant shareholder instead. Lol

If this is true: explain to me how two EU/Legends products made it into Wave VIII alongside two Rebels products?

Pablo hates the EU, the moron is the equivalent of Matt Ward getting a hold of core rulebook editing. You'd never get him to do anything ubless the Rebels team wants to steal something else.

Have you watched a single Pablo Hidalgo interview? What is your foundation for this opinion?

A: Product release schedule already had those craft slated, where as all up coming craft are DC only.

B: A number of remarks between other authors, as well as social media through which Pablo made clear if they had no control over it (like TOR), they won't go near it.

Then you made it too cheap.

Not remotely useful.  Dual cards don't set what side is face up until the fight starts, so you wouldn't have the cannon slot until well after you could pay to equip one.
