Help me build a squad with a HWK, Y-Wing, and Z-95

Recommended Posts

There's a local tournament coming up where they will be raffling off a pre-order of Most Wanted, and one of the ways to get a ticket into the raffle is to have a squad with at least two of the HWK, Y-Wing, or Z-95 Headhunter in it. Could be two of any one ship, or one each of two different ones, or more, even.

I've come up with a list I like, but wanted to see if the community at large could help craft something that will be fun to fly -- but doesn't necessarily have to be a top flight contender -- using some combination of these ships.

Let's see what your creative juices can come up with!

Just something I whipped up. Everything PS8, actions freed, Jan getting a focus or two each turn. Maybe not the strongest possible, but should be different at least.

I like it. Maybe throw Dutch in there instead of Horton to hand out free target locks, then switch one of the turrets to a Blaster Turret to help with the low damage output? Dutch and Airen could make sure whichever ship has the Blaster Turret gets a Target Lock and a Focus to help maximize the damage there. Also frees up three more points that I could use on something like Ion Torpedoes for an extra bit of damage/control alpha strike.

Don't forget that as long as Jan is alive either of the other two shoots at three dice with the primary, whoever has the best shot.

There's no repositioning, but you should be able to ion the main target and who needs repositioning after that? :P.

If you do go Dutch, R7-T1 is beckoning.

my thoughts of things that might be fun are:

 

Jan Ors

Blaster turret

Rec Spec

32

 

Wedge Antilles

Predator

R2-D2

Shield Upgrade

Flachette Torpedoes

42

OR

Corran Horn

VI

FCS

R2-D2

42

 

2x Tala Squadron Pilots

26

 

Total 100

 

The Jan/Wedge combo continues to be one of my favorite HWK lists, however, Corran Horn might be equal to Wedge as far as abilities go.

Just my thoughts, take it or leave it.

"Dutch" Vander — Y-Wing 23 Blaster Turret 4 Flechette Torpedoes 2 Flechette Torpedoes 2 R7-T1 3 Shield Upgrade 4    

 

Kyle Katarn — HWK-290 21 Push the Limit 3 Blaster Turret 4 Lando Calrissian 3 Shield Upgrade 4 Moldy Crow 3    

 

Lieutenant Blount — Z-95 Headhunter 17 Wingman 2 Assault Missiles 5

 

 

 

This might be fun. If the dice gods are with you Kyle would be a real menace.

Here's a squad of 10's for you.

 

Horton Salm + PT + PT + R2-D6 + VI + Ion Turret

Cracken + VI + Cluster Missile

Jan Ors + VI + Blaster Turret + Recon Specialist + MC

 

Everyone moves and shoots on 10 for you.  Horton shooting with a TL + a Focus is just a bad ass when it comes to PT.  With Jan and Cracken supporting him he'll be dropping ships.  Cracken with Clusters is just fun.  Shooting at 10 will help him get these off, which should be good against Decimators and Falcons.

I really like this list. This is one I just have to try.

Should be enough firepower at high pilot skill to take on most things.

If needed ion a phantom and then hit it with all you got.
