First tourney help!

Recommended Posts

I'm playing in a mini tournament in a few weeks and need some input.  It's my first team play and I want to make a good showing.

It's an "Escape from Hoth" ESB themed tourney, so I'm limited to either 2 X-Wings or 1 X-Wing & 1 Y-Wing.  The opposition is made up of TIE Fighters & Bombers.  The X-Wing pilots allowed are Luke, Wedge, Hobbie, Wes, Tarn, Red Squadron Pilot, and Rookie Pilot.  The Y-Wing can be Dutch, Horton, and Gold/Gray Squadron Pilot.  1 named pilot (and droid) per player.  Luke & R2-D2 are already taken.  Also, I'm limited to 70 pts. total.

In spite of all those restrictions, I came up with the following list.  Let me know what you think. 

Wedge (29), Expert Handling (2), Seismic Torpedo (2), R2 Astromech (1), Vectored Thrusters (2) =36
Gray Squad Pilot (20), TLT (6), Bomb Loadout (0), Targeting Astromech (2), Seismic Charges (2), Engine Upgrade (4), BTL-A4 Y-Wing (0) =34

Thanks in advance!

perhaps try something like this for burst? use m9G8 on the Ywing for rerolls on shots, since the torps will eat your target locks, this will allow for a pretty good chance of dropping 1 ship in first or at least second round of combat, afterward utilize the TLT/VT/M9G8 to pick off the other, use the red to block if you need to, optionally you could take chimps on the Xwing for a guarenteed crit on the alpha strike, which could be better depending on now things go.

68 points



“Dutch” Vander (38)
Y-Wing (23), R2 Astromech (1), Extra Munitions (2), Proton Torpedoes (4), Twin Laser Turret (6), Vectored Thrusters (2)

Red Squadron Pilot (30)
X-Wing (23), M9-G8 (3), Proton Torpedoes (4), Integrated Astromech (0)
