Wave 9 Revealed!

Recommended Posts

Do we think the Arc might have the 4 clones from rebels flying them?

It is interesting that the Rebel faction already has the Attack Shuttle with no generics, and the Vcx with only one. They are running out of resources, only Empire and S&V can afford mass production and fielding :)

They'll just make new pilots

Bob, Jim, etc

When it comes to the Fang, I believe that it is the first ever solo expansion (not a "veteran" type pack) that comes with so many pilots (and so very few upgrades).  Combine this with a non-unique title, and I have feeling that the title is meant to promote synergy between Fang ships (most likely not like the IG-2000 title, but something interesting).

I think I'm going to repaint all my Fangs and Scyks and glue them backwards to their pegs and confuse the **** out of everyone. :P

 

 


Interesting they say the tie is a 2 seater but no crew. Guess the second guy is just a turrent specialist only.

 

This is true of the Y-Wing already...

Was Nora Wexley not one of the pilots in Heroes of the Resistance, too?

 

Her ability is nice. Push The Limit (or any other source of free focus) makes her quite scary.

 

The Alliance Overhaul title essentially makes it a 3-attack ship normally, OR 2 attack from the tail gun. Nice idea.

 

 

The TIE/sf will be nice, too. be interesting to see what the dial is like - title-ed up, it's not far off a First Order T-70, especially if that's a systems slot icon.

True, that never sat right with me either

Edit: The Ywing title at least makes it believable the other guy isn't needed.

Why are the titles free and not unique? Surely there is no reason to not take them since they up primary attack value to 3. Strange decision but overall I like the look of what I see

That's "Snap" Wexley, her son.

BTW, she piloted a Y-wing during the Battle of Endor, Rebel Veterans maybe?

Holy crap vector thrusters adds BR to small ships it looks like. 

 

GAME ON REBELS

Cool. Now my X-Wings can CHOOSE between Integrated Astromech, Guidance Chimps, OR Vectoring Thrusters (not to mention whatever the new T-70 mod is)...

Strange at first to me, too, but it's a way to add additional rules to an otherwise "base" ship.

The Shadow Caster has an IG crew card on it.  Wonder if it's one of the existing IGs in crew form or IG-88 E.

Anyway: "Additionally, the Shadow Caster Expansion Pack and its upgrades allow you to litter the battlefield with debris tokens,

upgrade your Shadow Caster with the abilities of each IG-2000 in your squad (etc)"

It's quite simple, they want a unique rule just for one ship, but they can't print it on the pilot cards because it would take up the space of the pilot ability.

Am I reading that right that this could be a dawn of brobots 2.0?

Hey, why should I waste time actually reading the article when I can scrutinize the pictures pixel by pixel?  :D

At the very least it sounds like you can Brobot without a second Brobot.
