It did happen! Scum Epic!

I didn't read all the responses, so my apologies if this was brought up before.

I was looking at the titles, and maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me, but the second title seems to be The Broken Horn (seems obvious), but the third title kind of looks like an S and a J. Maybe with the more flared prow of the C-ROC they retconning a certain space yacht to be a C-ROC? Could it be the Star Jewel?

Intriguing ....

 

However, that first letter in the second line looks quite different from the 'J' in Jabba the Hutt in the second row.

Intriguing indeed.

 

'Star Jewel' would fit in one line.

If we go further assuming it could be the Star Jewel the Name could say:

• Star Jewel

  Yacht

There is 1 Heavy Scyk card there. Hopefully, it is with the new text.

But why just one?

Because every Scyk you own came with a Heavy Scyk card already.

 

Whereas it comes with 6 Light cards because people who already own a bunch of Scyks need cards for the entire swarm, hopefully without having to buy multiple Epics.

 

I wonder what the mid-huge Scum will be?

Why isn't this the mid-huge Scum(I assume Mid-huge means the smaller of the two epics)? The Gozanti is the Empire's mid-huge, and the C-Roc is just a remodeled Gozanti.

 

Sure, it's not clarified on the card in question just as other potential wrinkles with other illicit upgrades current and future are not clarified (there is no room on the card and it's beyond the card's scope)

 

I guess it's RAW vs RAI

Indeed. RAW, the Cloaking Device upgrade is only there to apply and remove the Cloak token, which functions independently of the upgrade. So if you remove the upgrade without removing the token, the token would remain and continue to perform it's function as per the rules.

It absolutely should get an errata.

I think this was done on purpose so they havn't spoiled any of the Syck pilots, well their names anyway

No, no, no...

Hey, guys...

HEY!

You're looking at it all wrong! It's not an error...it's an Easter Egg to let us know they are working on the Punisher Fix!!!

...

No?

???

A guy can hope...right?

 

 

BEGONE!

:lol:

Super surprised to see no tractor tokens in the spread. I would have expected a heavy tractor beam hard point to be included.

Since this seems like the scum counterpart to the Rebel GR-75 Transport/Imperial Goznati Carrier I expect another Epic Expansion pack for Scum in the near future. One that is more comparable to the CR-90 Corvette/ Imperial Raider. There might be some heavy tractor beam tokens that can move even large ships.

A heavy tractor beam that affected large ships is exactly what I was hoping and expecting to see too.

I do wonder if those weapons disabled tokens might not be an effect from a new hard point weapon. I hope some new interesting shenanigans are introduced.

Hopefully they aren't just there as part of something in the included campaign.

(...)Well, basically what they're going to do is errata the Zuckuss card to read "Huge Ship Only, Scum Only"...

So that you cannot field him even in his intended slot on a G1A piloted by buddy 4Lom? The pack Zuckuss is coming with?

I sense it was intended as humour given how many threads there've been suggesting Zuckuss needs nerfing in standard play.

Well played Gecko!

So, the box artwork and Heavy Laser Turret art show the underside dish array, and can kinda see something between the wing and underside turret...so maybe [they're] there as a removable piece ?

 

The upper dish array looks to be just a 'mirror' of the Imperial one, presumably also removable...

 

The underside turret is presumably a similar removable mounting to the Imperial, but with a single-barrel per the HLT art...

 

...what's the possibility that the top engine is also removable to convert to the Broken Horn configuration ???  :unsure:

 

Just spitballing 'model-configurability' as it's something I've discussed a bit lately with some members  ;)

I know. I just wanted to replace my outdated Heavy Scyk titles with the errataed ones.

I think this is the Scum mid-huge given that there is only one ship card, ala the Gozanti or GR-75.  The actual huges have a Fore and Aft card.

Zuckuss was necessary to break super dodger dominance.  Now, that said, I DO think that Zuckuss will be amazing on this thing, because it cannot receive the stress tokens that Zuckuss normally creates.  Also, this is a great escort for Dengaroo or even just Super Dengar if you give it Comms Booster.  Remove ALL Zuckuss stress from Dengar and give him his focus token!  Then he always gets an action and can still do Dengaroo shenanigans.

Heavy laser turret, Gonk, backup shield generator and automated protocols would be my basic building blocks (add Zuckuss for good measure).  If that transport reaches the mid or end game then it would be one heck of a pain to take down.

Call me interested.
I wanted to get into Scum. However Boba is hard to get anywhere under 60€ so I'm holding back, but maybe I'll start with an Epic ship  :P

Sorry if this was already discussed...

 

That top third row of upgrade cards are feathered into the middle row. Covering most of the artwork. Do you think FFG is trying to cover up a "dead give away" image? Maybe Monkey Lizard crew? most likely an iconic or familiar image. 

I'll be power-squinting & guessing until "late first quarter(portion)" when it's released.

I'd be kind of surprised if Scum gets another 'Epic' anytime soon, if at all.  My understanding is that sales of the Huge ships have always been weak, so not a priority for FFG.  But Scum needed at least one, so...

 

 

On the contrary, in a GenCon interview (I believe it was GenCon, might have been NOVA Squadron?) Alex Davy mentions that the huge ships have sold very very well and that Fantasty Flight tends to continue to produce things that tend to sell well...

...what's the possibility that the top engine is also removable to convert to the Broken Horn configuration ???  :unsure:

 

What's the possibility that FFG haven't matched the Title card to the existing images of the ship in question.

 

(such as Moldy Crow - I can't find any images that depict it in the white colour that appear on it's Title card)

 

 

I don't initially anticipate getting more that one C-ROC, but if I see some inspiring conversions/re-paints based on other Titles (and I like the Title ability) I could be swayed...

...but the platypus-look will be hard to get past.

 

- - - - -

 

 

 

The new cannon clearly has Arc in the title.  Some starship variant of an Arc Caster or Arc Welder?

 

I hope it's something that would go awesome with Maarek and the TIE/D...

 

if it doesn't shoot out ARCs, I will be disappointed

 

 

It's a "ARC Destroyer" - if it doesn't one-shot ARC's I will be disappointed. :D

but who's to say it doesn't scrub out the firing arcs on enemy ships, instead?

I'm betting that it is a range 1, 4 die cannon that attacks all ships in arc, friend and foe alike.

Possibly.

 

If it's based on the Arc Caster, then it's a gun that shoots lightning.  Which probably wouldn't deal pure damage.  It might be the cause of those Weapons Disabled tokens.

 

 

If it's based on the Arc Welder, then it could be some kind of short range cutting weapon.  Heck, what if it was a cannon you could only use on a ship you're in base contact with?

 

Like a swarm of salvager Scyks cutting ships to pieces.

Not another 'upgrade stealing' mechanic, I hope!  :mellow:  :unsure:

I read this article and yelled , WOW EPIC SCUM, and my wife waked up a few minutes later and handed me a bottle of bleach! I guess she's not understanding the joy i had.

This is awesome news and now I have to start looking for a bigger box.

Can't wait to fly her into battle.
