Is there any point in getting a second Tantive?

29 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone thinks getting a second Tantive is worthwhile... Thinking of running epic play with two to shake things up.

 

Any thoughts?

Officially, Rules wise, you can't. Tantive costs 3 epic points, and you only get 5 to spend. Nothing stopping you doing it at home or whatever, but for epic tournament play, it's not allowed.

I'd say you're better off holding onto your cash until imperial huge ships come out. :)

This is a very good thought and much agreement with what is Said above

I bought a (cheaper) one on EBay for a custom repaint, and to allow home games with big fleets.

Above auction is not mine, FWIW, but it arrived in 4 days, mint in box.  $50.99 including shipping was a deal.

 

Not everything has to be tournament approved to have fun with it.

You can outfit one to the gills with combat stuff, and the other one as a command ship. Don't try to do two of the same ships, lots of the required cards are unique.  I mean you can, but the effectiveness is decreased, plus, why would you need all that firepower?

No, there is no point.

 

At least there isn't if you don't find yourself playing totally-casual games in which you go full epic. Given the relative rarity of epic games overall (in my experience, YMMV), the CR-90 may be a great white elephant.

 

(Hey, that goes along with the space cow and space whale imagery... except that whales are larger than elephants. But, it's clear that the Transport is whale-shaped, so I'm not .... nevvamind.)

 

So, I would only get a second one if it just really tickles your fancy. That may be all the point you need. But, coming here to rationalize such a decision is probably not the best way to convince yourself. Then again, if you buy it at your FLGS - I say: DO IT!!

I agree wholeheartedly. You obviously want to buy a second one, so go ahead and buy it  :P

Repaint it and run it on the Imperial side

Then put Vader crew on it :-P
 

Doom Corvette!

 I am currently using my CR90 Corvette as a proxy for the DP20...

I'm going to try to find the time to play test this version this week.

I meant to get the crippled side done some time today but got distracted.

We have played four games with the CR90 so I feel good about getting it right.

 

I was going to try as crew

Tactician

Mara Jade

Rebel Captive

 

But I thought that was too specialized for a trial run.

So I'm going to go with

Darth Vader

Tactician

Fleet Officer

 

Also not going to go with double concussion missiles,

probably Cluster in the front and Ion Pulse in the back.

You could EASILY sell the extra unique upgrades. People would probably pay through the nose for that C-3P0

I don't know about "through the nose", but I do need to find someone parting with their extra unique crew cards.

Two can legally fielded on the same side in Team Epic.  I don't know why you would ever want to do that, and I wouldn't suggest it is a good idea but that is the only reason for owning 2.

Anyone making a tartan patrol cruiser from Empire at war?

That thing looks like a cross between a Firefly and a Reaver ship.

 

I do like it, though. Still, I prefer the Lancer.

   It could be an intereing game, but too long, I hear that 1 game it tooks more tan 3 hours, so with two, it takes to much, grettings.
