What is the scariest Imperial for 25 points?

Recommended Posts

Or less! Just curious. I'm going for intimidation prior to a match beginning. Actual ability is secondary. I'm looking at Pure Sabacc for fire power as a potential, but for some reason the TIE Striker just doesn't hold a lot of intimidation factor.

Pure Sabaac should.   Otherwise, A gamma vet with Cruise Missiles and EPT or EM

I vote Pure Sabacc with Score to Settle, Alerons, Targeting Computer. Wont last long but it wont anyway regardless of what you do. Should get 2 maybe 3 big shots off.

Otherwise go even cheaper to 22 pts and bring my boy Countdown and piss off dengar/rey/norra/etc

I wanted to say Zeta leader because he can get 3-4 red dice (when selfstressing) and has 4 HP, but yeah... power creep...

I think if I was going for Zeta leader, I'd be tempted to drop it down to Mauler Mithel or Backstabber... They're my friends...

While I like Mauler Mithel and Backstabber, Zeta Leader has the upgraded ride with green 2 turns and sloops. The dial is very much worth it.

1. Omega Leader - 21 pts

Doesn't matter, really, how she's built. It's gonna cause concern for your opponent.

1a. Omega Leader with A Score to Settle and Comm Relay - 24 pts

Not only are you able to mod OL's shots against a preferred enemy... They don't get the benefit back if you've got them locked.

2. Omicron Group Pilot (w/ Collision Detector) - 21 pts

This is intimidating because your opponent expects to see Palp, and it's a gorram alabaster space cow. Warning: fear wears off when they realize you're Palp-less.

2a. Omicron Group Pilot w/ Darth Vader crew and Collision Detector - 24 pts.

The Doom Shuttle (lite). To this day, a ship that still strikes fear into aces. They now devote their entire strategy to staying out of those Vader-backed front guns, and have to spend time taking it down.

Although the fear returns when they ignore the shuttle and find it parked beside their list for two turns, just outside the majority of arcs...  I hadn't thought of Lambda shuttles prior to posting originally... The Vader shuttle is tempting now.

I had a guy choose to put A Debt to Pay on OL once during a tournament. I asked him, "Are you sure about that?", "Yeah".

He's not a newbie, he's a regular at the store and I know he knows OL.

That was the first ship I locked down. He got a concerned look on his face the first firing round I told him he could not modify with his attack and then facepalmed. OL got free crits back on him thanks to his own EPT.

Such a bro. :D

 

Edit:

Coincidentally, and more to answer the topic question, the tournament was a 50pts one that I ran OL and ZL with

Omega Leader: Juke, Comm Relay at 26pts

Zeta Leader: Wired, TIE MkII, Sensor Cluster at 24pts

Both of those are some of my favorite 25ish Imps.

I think ADTP is a great option for juke for OL. Comes in at 21 points plus what ever tech slot you want to add. save your focus' for defence.

Scimitar Squadron Pilot

- Title

- Darth Vader

- Hotshot Copilot (or Rebel Captive) 

- Lightweight Frame or upgrade to Gamma Squadron Pilot (or Gamma Squadron Veteran + Adaptability)

 

Depending, of course. I think at 25 points there is no "one size fits all" ship that is scary to all comers. But this is a good one. Vader to frighten Fenn and other low hull ships, Rebel Captive to annoy Mindlink or Expertise users, or HotCP if Rey or Poe is making waves/shutting down agromech thugs/general token stripping utility.
