Can you stall a Lambda Shuttle every turn?

21 posts in this topic

I have consulted the Force and receive no answer, Soo I'm asking the X-Wing Community for some help.

I have a Lambda Shuttle with Advanced Sensors. The shuttle uses the Advanced Sensor to preform an action. During movement the Lambda Shuttle does a red stall and receives a stress token. What is the best way to remove that token every turn?

The problem with the BS Tie fighter is it also has to stay behind the Lambda. I'm trying to build something unique and competitive.

Have a Defender K-Turn back and forth in front of one. Have it stop when the Defender is away, and have it do a one straight green when it's touching you.

Love, love, love obnoxious in a casual beer game.....a great weekend leader. Well done; here's my 2 cents on your evil plan:

Omicron Group Pilot (21), Advanced Sensors (3), Flechette Cannon (2)

Omicron Group Pilot (21), Advanced Sensors (3), Mangler Cannon (4)

Omicron Group Pilot (21), Advanced Sensors (3), Kylo Ren (3)

Epsillon Leader (19)

 

.....but who in the world has three Lambdas??

I have actually done with this the Upsilon and Epsilon Leader.  Keeping Epsilon close was a challenge but it worked ok.

It actually made me really like Epsilon Leader a lot, as slooping about got a lot more attractive.  Shame he doesn't have an EPT.

I remember this piece of theory-crafting (not mine, I should add) making a bit of a splash.  Three shuttles all effectively doing 0 stops in the corner all game, and getting full mods on their attacks while they do so...

Captain Yorr (24)
Inspiring Recruit (1)
Systems Officer (2)

Lieutenant Dormitz (31)
General Hux (5)
Hyperwave Comm Scanner (1)
Anti-Pursuit Lasers (2)

Starkiller Base Pilot (30)
Inspiring Recruit (1)
Hyperwave Comm Scanner (1)
Anti-Pursuit Lasers (2)

Total: 100

Edit: Here's a full explanation for this madness. :)

BoShek on a ship that is in contact and bumps all the time, and use a bank 1 to the left on lambda's dial, turning it to 0 each turn. Lots of stress though, but who cares :)

You don't even need AS

Recruit doesn't do it unless the stress is being removed by some other means anyway.

Funny this thread just popped up. I was toying around with this 100 point list earlier this week:

Academy Pilot (12)

Epsilon Leader (19)

OGP (28)

-Tractor Beam, FCS, Darth Vader

StarKillerBase Pilot (41)

-General Hux, FCS, Kylo Rens Shuttle, Pattern Analyzer, Inspiring Recruit

 

The tie fighter just circles flies in front and tries to block opponents when they come in for the first round of combat.

The Upsilon stalls, pattern analyzer lets him do the Hux action before he receives the stress. He passes a focus token to himself, the OGP and Epsilon Leader. He can also pass out fanatical devotion to whom it best serves. He then receives a stress from Hux and a stress from the red stop.

The OGP also stalls and receives a stress. 

Epsilon Leader just bumps into the back of one of the shuttles.

Combat starts and Epsilon Leader removes a stress from both shuttles, inspiring recruit removes the extra stress on the Upsilon. Everyone has a focus token and no stress! Hopefully the OGP can tractor beam someone off the board/into asteroid/into a range 1 shot of the Upsilon.

At the end of combat we should have some target locks from the FCS's and Kylo can dish out a stress to an opposing ship. Should be a fun little casual list.
