...so many Z-95s

Recommended Posts

By the end of next week I should have three new Imperial fighter packs for 6 TIE/Ds or 6 Decimators. I don't know if I should try the Decimator swarm for myself sooner, or wait for Mel's ATR-6s to come in and just deny the VTs ever happened :P

 

I admitted to myself I'm more of an Imperial player so I'm putting off collecting Zs for now, but I expect to face them enmasse in the future. I'll also be waiting for that inevitable circumstance when a Z-95 rolls up with an activation and one-shots a TIE Defender squadron. **** concussion missiles!

I was actually more surprised by seeing 2 Decimators! I actually want to try more of them myself.

Testing a 3 decimator, Morna, IG, Dengar list pretty soon. Just a ball of Counter. http://armadawarlords.hivelabs.solutions/view_list.php?token=62457&key=e81765e4b8a5acdfaabd9c92b5f28470

Is there a way to make the Z red dice for anti squadron more reliable?

 

The only way to justify them being cheaper than the TIEs and possibly hitting harder is to not make their shots more reliable. After all, they can take out generic fighters twice as expensive as they are.

Like, 5% of the time :D

I know, its probably higher than that, when were considering a 5 hull craft, not a 6 hull craft...   A 6 hull craft is like, 1% of the time....  :D

Looks interesting! I'd probably change some of the objectives to CC ones just to test more of them out and maybe take out one Decimator for a Black Squadron for a cheap counter escort and Colonel Jendon for IG/Decimator fun. Hmmm, maybe Close Ranged Intel Scan, Ion Cannon/Fighter Ambush, and not really any of the navigational CC ones for this list.

 

I'll give it a go if I can soon.

Yeah, it's a significant savings over those, ahem, pricey A-wing squadrons.  They really are a great screen for cheap.  

 

But man, my 8 flights of readied Z-95's are 'dakka factories', they shoot a bunch, should hit hard, and whiff every time.  That said, they're insanely fun.  Now I need to start bolting some extra barrels and painting big red maws on a few.  There's got to be a picture in here to adequately express my feelings... -rummages-   

 

I'm interested to know how the YT1300's do, especially if there's a chance at 'All wings report in' or, 'da big red button!' as I've been mentally picturing it.  

Everyone should know my feelings on the 1300's . . . BEST SQUADRON EVER!

Anyone's opinions on Decimators?  The heavy makes them a bit of a hard sell to me.  Do they work more in a fleet that doesn't care about AA for defense? 

I have great success with Decimators in my limited use. In two games they have claimed an Assault Frigate MkIIA, and a CR90, along with out 8 flights of fighters. They have enough firepower that 3 of them spent the game chasing the MkII while the TIE Interceptors kept enemy fighters at bay. The result was like a wolf pack going after large prey. It just couldn't hold up to all the tiny bites.

What, like flight controllers?

Flight Controllers doesn't act the same as Bomber Command.

Dras was picking up what I was laying down.

Fighter Command 8 pt

Squadrons at distance 1-5 can re-roll a single attack die when attacking a squadron.

What about:

Friendly Squadrons, without Bomber and at distance 1-5 gain Swarm.

This would allow every Imp squad to have at least Counter 2 when Dengar and Howl are running with it. So no. Bad upgrade.
