If you have them, I would recommend switching to Harpoon Missiles. You can go Harpoons + Extra Munitions for 98 points. That way you have great synergy with your cannon boats - harpoon something, then mangler to trigger the condition. Especially good since you have all PS2 ships, so you can choose what order to shoot in for max efficiency! (Generally speaking, Proton Rockets aren't worth it on ships with < 3 agility - you're paying 3 points for a one time upgrade of one attack die.) Don't worry if you don't though - this list looks fun regardless. :)

You were right about the protons, both the rockets and the torpedoes ? I tend to avoid harpoons due too my anti-meta hipster mentality, but they are way more efficient compared to protons.

And 4 GUNBOATS were a bit sluggish if you're not used to it,which I discovered the hard way ?

Just had a thought.  If all the original, Wave One ships are being remodelled and re-released for 2nd Edition, then, somewhere down the line....

XG-1 Assault Gunboat, 2nd Edition!

(all this has happened before, and will happen again)

Maarek Stele!  XG-1 Ion Cannons!  FOLDING WINGS!!!

Time, my brothers, to BEGIN the CRUSADE once MORE!

Even though I find the content of the conversion boxes not 100% great: GUNBOAT again!

The GUNBOAT is included in the conversion box so it is good to go.. however as one of the newer sculpts I would expect it to be quite a while for it to be re-released.

Yes, 2 doses of GUNBOARD won’t satisfy my hungry BOAT beauties.  I guess I can get the other three sets of conversion kit from scalpers.

And don't forget that he was force sensitive!!

Maarek Stele, Imperial Servant....wait, I mean Imperial BADASS

if Stele does show up in every Ship he flew in TIE Fighter, FFG can have all my money.   As long as he has at least 2 force charge tokens.

I bet there are enough people who have Just bought one GUNBOAT or - heresy! - none.

Their ignorance ist our advantage at this point. I bet they'll sell/trade you these cards and dials.

(Man would JBR7 be creeped out xD )

We're up to three GUNBOATS in the conversion kit now.  And down to two Decimators.

A fair trade!

I would say so!  Now I’m looking at that list and planning on any Imperial purchases in the next few months.  If any.  Strikers are looking good, maybe a couple more to round out the fleet before conversion.  And a Bomber, because Bombers.

I noticed they've said that the sub titles will allow more pilots to fly in different ships.

VADER IN A DEFENDER PLEASE.

It also helps to defferentiate between characters at different points in their live. For example Luke [Red Five] and maybe Luke [Twin Suns Leader]
