Guess I get two fancy xwings then

I don't know anyone who's buying less than 2. 

Store champs is going to be 90% 5X lists

Also 5X mirror matches are the best thing ever.

new person: "what's this game called?"

player: "Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures!"

new person: "so are there other ships in the game too?"

Yeah, your GenCon Fort Chris will require 2 Saw's packs.  

DON'T JUST TELL EVERYONE WHAT'S HAPPENING, COME ON NOW

 

Also, if anyone knows of a good artistic way to display a 15 die final salvo on the side of the board during my games, taking suggestions.  Dice app with 15 dice ready to go?

Grab like, a third of Nathan's dice pile?

So I just got my new stuff. 

Things I'm noticing:

No 2.0 tokens. So I'll need to proxy the charge tokens and use 1.0 tokens for everything when proxying 2.0

Lots of formatting differences in these cards. People already pointed this out

the medium bases are almost exactly 1.5 small bases long and wide.

Reapers look stupid on small bases

Both of my Saw's X-Wings have really sticky wings that require a good amount of force to flap. 

2.0 bases have less contrast than 1.0 ones (the arc lines are harder to see)

2.0 dials look really nice

For a rushed production, these ships are really well painted.

I am at the stage where I can swap textures on the Dice app. 

 

Make the background a big picture of Duncan's face and have it so that when you open the app it says DARE YOU APPROACH FORT CHRIS?

Oh god, please keep this experiment up :) There's so little in the dice app that inspires confidence in using it for anything competitive and everything new I learn about it it goes further in that direction. Ignoring the entire question of how easy it would be to just make an app that "looks enough like the official dice app to fool your opponent", if it's relatively easy to just hack the official one all bets are off really...

If you know someone with actual unity experience, send them my way. Otherwise the Duncan Howard Plot Armor Memorial App (version of the dice app where all symbols are pictures of Duncan with varying expressions) is all that I have.

Topic....now that we know Wave 14 doesn't come with threat cards for 2e, what kind of threat cards would you create for the Reaper and Saw's Renegades to help show off 2e to a new player? 

Just finally figured out what that picture is. I feel dumb for not getting the joke of this page number yet. 

I would say it seems fair to have

Saw (Magva Crew, Trick Shot, Advanced Sensors, and Proton Torps)  3 Threat

Magva (Saw Crew, Trick Shot, Advanced Sensors, and Proton Torps)  3 Threat 

Benthic (Saw Crew, Tactical Officer, Trick Shot, Advanced Sensors, and Proton Torps)  3 Threat

generic U-Wing  (Tactical Officer)   2 threat

Kullbee (Trick Shot, R4, Proton Torps)  3 threat

Leevan (Juke, R4, Proton Torps)  3 threat

Edrio (R3) 2 threat

Zealot (Deadman's and R3)  2 threat 

Vermeil (Death Troopers and Juke)  3 threat

Feroph (Krennic, Slicer, and Swarm Tactics)  3 Threat

Vizier  (Juke, Tactical Officer, and Slicers)  3 threat

Generic  2 threat

 

And play with 5 Threat. 5 Threat games are awesome.

Krennic is real, trying to figure out the best carrier for him. Maybe RAClo?

 

Also Magva's ability is a bit crazy for Fair Ship Rebels.

Pretty sure it's vermeil.  ISB Slicers is more than sneaky good - if something already has a token, you can double jam them.  Take a bid and you're moving after miranda and can't be harpooned by her or nym, which is fancy.

 

I was looking at 100 point quiz: 

Unnamed Squadron (99)
Major Vermeil — TIE Reaper    26
Veteran Instincts    1
Director Krennic    5
ISB Slicer    2
Lightweight Frame    2
Advanced Ailerons    0
Ship Total: 36
     
Scarif Base Pilot — TIE Reaper    22
Emperor Palpatine    8
Lightweight Frame    2
Advanced Ailerons    0
Ship Total: 32
     
The Inquisitor — TIE Advanced Prototype    25
Push the Limit    3
Autothrusters    2
TIE/v1    1
Ship Total: 31

 

Though stripping some things down to get either soontir or ryad might be better.

Yeah I was running Vermeil and double jam is pretty strong. I was doing Vermeil/Vader/QD, but I think Inq is probably better than QD/Vader. It's funny how quickly Ryad melts when you strip off her evade/focus.

 

Only problem with using Ryad with big V is that since she shoots after V, he can't use the target lock the same turn.

So could this be a thing? I saw something similar at the Canadian Nationals that went pretty far (Top 4 I think). Wired/Hera/Saw/Trick Shot are all optional upgrades along with however you want to kit out Jess. Was just thinking that everyone being PS5 would give some movement flexibility.

 

Magva Yarro — U-Wing                                                      25  

 
Renegade Refit  -2
Ship Total: 23
   
Ezra Bridger (Sheathipede) — Sheathipede-class Shuttle 17
Wired 1
Hera Syndulla 1
R3-A2 2
Ship Total: 21
   
Lowhhrick — Auzituck Gunship 28
Trick Shot 0
Saw Gerrera 1
Ship Total: 29
   
Jess Pava — T-70 X-Wing 25
R2-D6 1
Veteran Instincts 1
Integrated Astromech 0
Ship Total: 27

@Scott Pilgrim2 I think right now the it's much better to have Selflessness on another ship in a FSR with Lowhhrick and Ezra right now rather than trying to put everything at PS5. Without Selflessness on Jess, people will just shoot at Lowhhrick and right now with your setup, you're taking damage on your linchpin to do damage via Saw crew and that's counter intuitive to what a natural FSR wants to do. It's hard to fit together, but this is the best I could come up with that keeps Jess Pava in the list. Jess, Magva, Ezra, Lowhhrick It's rare I pull points off Ezra, but I think DTF & Wookiee Commandos is the lowest I'll go on a Lowhhrick and Magva is already taking as many zero pt upgrades as possible. All I cared about is finding a way to turn around Ezra which is via Adrenaline Rush and in most games Ezra should only need to 3k once. I realize Courier droid isn't doing much anyway, but it's free so cool. Magva will likely need Chopper more than Ezra for her turn around turn(s) since Ezra is meant to stay alive and control, not do damage.
