12 Ties at 300pts?

Recommended Posts

In my games so far as the Imperials, the majority of my damage is done by my capital ships. I've had limited success with Rhymer but honestly you have to build your squadron load-out around utilizing him and you sink a lot of points into one big bomber blob. One thing I'm really interested in trying is 12 generic Tie Fighter for 96 points. Most Rebel players aren't going to have 5 Rebel Fighter packs to field 10 Y-Wings or 9 A-Wings, so you're most likely going to go up against a max of 6-9 squadrons in the average rebel list, giving you a potential 2-to-1 advantage. If the purpose of your Imperial fighters are to establish fighter superiority to defend your capital ships and give them free reign to wreck havoc and score victory points, how effective do you feel the 12 Tie Fighter build would be? I'm currently considering 2 Vic 2s, with Motti on one, Intel Officer on the other, and 12 Tie Fighters for this evenings game against a relatively new Rebel commander.

They would be a great screen for your force. Send in 3 at a time to tie up the xwing. Your looking at tiring his xwing force up for 5 to 6 turns, with the first turn your force are closing.

Just the other day i played a list like this

Imperials: 296

Victory II-class Star Destroyer - 123

- Grand Moff Tarkin

Victory II-class Star Destroyer - 85

11 Tie Fighter Squadrons - 88

All the tie fighters except for 2 on 1 health died, against 2 escort friagates and 4 X-wings + Luke and at least 2 x-wings were still alive as well. Though i do admit it was a bad idea to place some of them in the overlapping fire of 2 escort frigates
