Return of the Marksmanship?

Recommended Posts

With the new titles,

 

Colonel Vessery+TIE/D+Marksmanship+Ion Cannon (41 points and room for a modification to taste)

 

As long as he is paired with a couple of TIE Advanced (with the sustained target lock thing) or with a shuttle or a bomber that can dish out target locks at long range, then Vessery can put out two attacks that are target locked and focused on most turns.

 

There are a handful of ways to support Vessery, but one that I like looks as follows:

 

99 Points

 
33 points

• Darth Vader

TIE/x1PredatorAdvanced Targeting Computer

 

42 points

• Colonel Vessery

Ion Cannon

Marksmanship
TIE/D

Twin Ion Engine Mk. II
 
24 points

Storm Squadron Pilot

TIE/x1

Advanced Targeting Computer

 

What are your thoughts?

Low PS is way harder to land ATC on for tie Adv's.. so Ac would probably be better.

 

and while you're at it, drop the storm to colzet to assure your use of Target locks.

also synergy with marksmanship.

 

frees up 3 points you can Prockets on vader if you want.

If you are thinking of Marksmanship, why would you not go with Maarek?

 

Ah, I see why.

 

Vessery now gets the Double Tap from the title.  Markmanship effects all your attacks, so effectively it means Vessery pops MM for his action, and so long as an Advanced has a TL it means Vessery is getting two shots of Focus+TL (effectively).  Sure, the Ion Cannon will negate one MM crits, but Vessery should spend most of the game rolling back to back three hits.

 

I actually like it: more so than Marksmanship on Maarek.  Maarek gets his tasty crit from ATC, but honestly running him with something other than Predator is just screaming at his action economy...

Nailed it!

I think getting a shuttle that picks up target locks across the table is a cool way to go too. But I like the visual of a Defender with two Advanced escorts.

I don't think its necessary (you won't need that much modification on your attacks all the time) and giving up the defensive focus will mean Vessery dies faster.  I mean it works, but I personally would prefer outmanoeuvre or crack shot or good ol' VI on Vess.  There's also the possibility of Ruthlessness now...

I don't think any of you understood this. He was talking about Maarek in the new red defender. You know the best defender pilot to come in the veterans pack?

 

 

maarek?

 

I'm hoping he costs the same as vess so he even has a sliver of hope of being played
