Wave 11 announced at GAMA!

Recommended Posts

Y-Wing is the Mosquito to the X-Wing's Spitfire.  It's WWII in space after all.  ;)

Also is the Z-95 not considerably older than the YT-1300?  I know the Han Solo books are out of the canon, but I think it was Star's End where Han was ripping on Z-95s as literal museum pieces.

 The Wookie Gunship having two reinforce tokens is what worries me the moSt.  If they have a way of getting both on the field in a single turn, they can ignore an entire TIE Swarm of shots without rolling dice. 

Perhaps one is for a pilot trait, and another for some single use upgrade.

Perhaps there's an ion penalty, and recharge mechanic which means it may tank a single turn, but you'll know where it will be next and it can't repeat immediately.

I am looking forward to a wave where I can get all ships because there aren't two expensive large boxes (looking at you Heroes of the Resistance, U-Wing, and Batwing). Quad TLT with 5 hull 3 greens at all ranges will be an annoying list for sure. But since all upgrades for it come with the expansion, maybe FFG did some teting to make sure that is not broken...please?

Wookie ship looks like a solid jankplatform, and a nice conduit for shyriiwook-memes. Good to see them not forget about extra arcs on small ships.

No particular feelings on the Scum ship, but as it comes with new bombs and appareantly two copies at that I am happy. Dual faction also is interesting, I wonder if that is just going to be one pilot.

I hope that is not the case too, and that new crew card with orange background and a wall of text ("Something-something Specialist") allows you to get a reinforce token if you don't have one already by making your roll one fewer attack die, or similar, that would help both B-Wings, ARCs, and even epic ships.

Not sure if TLTs and ruthlessness (+maybe LWF) is a good thing for the game, hopefully it wont fit into 100pts 4times. 

And if the double slot missile is hitting several targets it hopefully is unique! We do not need more alpha strikes in the game (why even bother to pack upp cards,  tokens and putting ships on the table then). 

I called the Scurrg being small-based for a long time.  If the rebel and imperial dedicated fat bombers are small based,  the Scurrg has to be small for game balance purposes as well. Being dual faction means unfortunately LESS pilot variance,  as there are only 5 pilots in the pack, should be 8. If rebels not already had a good bomber. ...

I hope it's better than the TIE egg-carton,  cause we wantsss it my preciousss!

I remember Alex Davy saying in an interview or podcast that he didn't like how ordnance was designed for the game (as a single overpowered, overcosted attack), and that he instead would have gone the way of treating torpedoes and missiles as extra bonuses for your normal attack.
I wonder if these double missiles are something like that.

I'd be highly surprised if the PS5 Wookie isn't Chewie.

Then again... 

... whilst the pilot name may just match up to the spacing on the YT Chewies, the ability text alignment doesn't match either original or HOTR Chewie. 

Usually they keep the same pilot ability when provisioning different ships within the same faction. 

(and I liked that trend) 

Plus, flip-crits Chewie would be good in a ship of these stat's.

Maybe it's a clone-wars era chewie, so they gave him a new ability similar to OT vs TFA chewie?

In case you all missed it: Scurrg has boost as it has Focus (token present for that), <ACTION>, barrel roll. No token for the <action> so its not evade, not Target Lock, not reinforce and it does not look like Coordinate.

Looks like focus, evade and barrel roll to me.

Could be massively wrong though, why are these photos worse than alien sightings?

YEEEEEEEEESS!!!!

I hope it's a Turret slot and not just, like, a rear firing arc.

It's a 2 2 4 1 ship at 17 points at PS2.

Comes with a turret and two missile slots as standard. 

TLT and new turret as well as a double missile slot upgrade card all contained within.

Enjoy!

You have no evade token - ships with evade always have a token for that.

Boost would be nice. Not like you would be taking auto thrusters on it, maybe some daredevil use for once?

That said...Jesus FFG, do you even read your own sourcebooks?  Aggressors didn't have Shields or Missiles...

I don't think it does - the only duplicated card in the fan looks to be a missile, all others have different art (even the obscured ones). 

THUS, I suspect that some pilot trait,  upgrade or a new bomb itself will grant the ability to deploy two tokens at once.

Wookieepedia aggrees without about the shields, but says it comes with concussion missiles:

I have FFG's own Stay On Target book for Age of Rebellion.  And it doesn't have either in that.

Granted, it could have those things in SWGs.  But you could put shields and missiles on anything in that game because every ship was customizable.
