Which preview will be out today?

Recommended Posts

 

Who's gonna run 2x Gozanti filled with 4x TIE Punishers each?????

Probably nobody. I have a feeling there will be limits on what can dock to a Gozanti, that limit being only those fighters with a ball fuselage due to how the docking pylons work. So no Phantoms, Punishers or Bombers.

 

also the Punishers are frickin' huge.  As in, long and wide.  No way they'll fit.

 

I actually quite dislike the Punisher model, it just looks like an upscaled TIE Bomber, or at least the wings look upscaled.  It just doesn't fit right for me alongside the other TIEs.

I think we are going to hear more about that Dracula expansion they've been talking up lately. Haven't seen the ships yet. And I have no idea how the new rules will work with the existing system, but FFG is pretty good about game play stuff, it's probably just the articles are rubbish again.

Until those last couple previews I hadn't even considered a night/day mechanic in X-Wing. Now it seems obvious. Doctor Who even had a cross-promotional episode based on the night/day mechanic with ghosts the past 2 weeks. The ship looked sleek.

How would that even work?

 

Every fourth round, the clock switches between night/day. During the day, ships that are Vampiric become stressed, lose 1 attack die and 1 defense die, and can perform only 1-speed maneuvers--during the night, ships that are not Vampiric have those same limitations restricted to them.

 

That's my guess.

I kept laughing thinking there's no night in space... but if you put a light source star just off the board, you can be shadowed by an asteroid in relation to that star, voila, effective night. Then the vampire ships attack and steal your shields and blood.

I keep assuming that the new preview is the GA-1 since it has a cloaking device. Everyone's fears about it's failure rate should be put to rest.

Next is assuredly going to be the Gozanti. It's on the boat, Wave 8 isn't.

 

It's not like we can't already proxy the Cloaking Device on the tabletop and see how well it works for ships like the Virago.
